    We can only imagine the flurry in Gov. Ed Rendell's press office last week when the news release was e-mailed en masse to reporters. There was nothing particularly out of the ordinary about the subject matter -- the Pennsylvania Department of Military & Veterans Affairs helping provide video phones to aid communication between deployed Pennsylvania National Guard members in Iraq and their families. But at the top of the release was a note from Trena Brown, an office administrator, that she had neglected to delete before sending out the communique. "Bet this gonna cause a lot of breakups. Can you...

    Fellow Americans, there comes a time every mans life when we must give up ourselves before we are worthy to recieve. There comes a time in this war on terror when in order to protect liberty, we have to give it up in the mean time for safty. That's right folks. Today, Americans have forsaken the creator for the creation and have decided that they would value our "civil liberties" than protecting western civilization and rich white people from the tender mercies of radical Islamic terrorists. Selfish liberals insist and whine that Bush has no right to spy on Americans...

    Wisconsin State Journal ^ | January 17, 2006 | Wisconsin State Journal Editorial
    For all the overheated talk of fraud in Wisconsin's last presidential election particularly in Milwaukee one incident stands out and demands significant punishment. Those who slashed the tires of 25 rented vans and cars at the GOP headquarters in Milwaukee the morning of the 2004 election may have prevented hundreds of people from voting. Five men, including the sons of two prominent Democrats, are on trial for felony property destruction. Testimony resumes today in a Milwaukee courtroom. This is not just another run-of-the-mill case of vandalism. It's an affront to our democratic system. The Republican Party of Wisconsin had rented...

    After reading all of the crap that people have been saying regarding Adult Private Social Clubs, I felt that I had to post an article and give my opinion. I am sick and tired of all the religous groups that are saying that there are drugs, prostitution, minors, non-consenting people, and just immoral people at these clubs! First of all, who do these people think they are to decide what is morally right or wrong for me? I believe that I have a good set of morals. I am a law abiding, tax paying citizen, I work full time and...

    Boston Mayor Thomas Menino has raised the level of rhetoric and insulted religious Catholics across the state by telling a homosexual newspaper this week that those who want to enforce the Church's teachings and instructions are, in his words, "hateful." Catholic Charities, an arm of the Archdiocese of Boston but run by a separate (and unfortunately, left-wing) board of directors, had announced that it was honoring Mayor Menino at its annual fund-raising dinner to be held next Friday, Dec. 9, at the Boston Harbor Hotel. Many religious Catholics were outraged and communicated with Archbishop Sean O'Malley that he should not...

    September 22, 2005 -- WASHINGTON — Two staffers on a Democratic political committee headed by Sen. Chuck Schumer are being investigated by the FBI for an alleged dirty trick — getting a Republican candidate's credit report illegally, officials confirmed yesterday. "We are investigating the matter jointly with the FBI," said a spokeswoman for the U.S. Attorney's office in Washington. Phil Singer, a spokesman for the Schumer-headed Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee, said two staffers were instantly suspended — with pay — in July after admitting they obtained the credit report of...

    NEW ORLEANS, United States (AFP) - A top New Orleans police officer said that National Guard troops sat around playing cards while people died in the stricken city after Hurricane Katrina. New Orleans deputy police commander W.S. Riley launched a bitter attack on the federal response to the disaster though he praised the way the evacuation was eventually handled. His remarks fuelled controversy over the government's handling of events during five days when New Orleans succumbed to lawlessness after Katrina swamped the city's flood defenses. The National Guard commander, Lieutenant General Steven Blum, said the reservist force was slow...

I work for a non-profit. I'm not a bottomless pit,'' the chairman of Citizens Energy Corp. and former congressman allegedly told Pamela Burkley, whom he knew in their star-crossed youth on Cape Cod as Pam Kelley – his late brother David's girlfriend.

    All reasonable people know it -- it was well documented by various media sources throughout the 2004 election and now we have the concrete proof: Democrats and their operatives were far and away more involved in voter intimidation, fraud, suppression and, yes, disenfranchisement, than Republicans. It's not even close. But don't take our word for it liberals, read the 368-page report by the non-partisan American Center for Voting Rights yourself. The mission statement on the American Center for Voting Rights web site describes the organization in the following manner: The American Center For Voting Rights (ACVR) was founded in February...

    Senate Minority Whip Richard J. Durbin acknowledged yesterday that he was the source for a newspaper column that reported earlier this week that Judge John G. Roberts Jr. said he could not rule in a Supreme Court case where U.S. law might conflict with Catholic teaching. But the Illinois Democrat maintains that the column by George Washington University law professor Jonathan Turley incorrectly captured the private conversation that the senator had with Judge Roberts in his Capitol office Friday. When the column appeared Monday, Mr. Durbin's office clarified that "Judge Roberts said repeatedly that he would follow the rule of...

    KANSAS CITY, Mo. — About a dozen newspapers have objected to use of toilet humor in Tuesday's and Wednesday's "Doonesbury" comic strip, and some either pulled or edited the strip. Kansas City-based Universal Press Syndicate, which distributes the Garry Trudeau strip to about 1,400 newspapers, said it had received some complaints from editors about a reference to presidential aide Karl Rove. In the strip, a caricature of President Bush refers to Rove as "turd blossom." It has been widely reported that "Turd Blossom" is the president's actual nickname for Rove. Lee Salem, editor at Universal Press, said the complaints, from...
