"Analysts have long talked about the end of an American-led system and the arrival of an Asian century. This is now happening in front of our eyes.

    One of the more common refrains in the “Where have all of the good men gone!” lament is men’s increasing unwillingness to court women the way women expect to be courted. This is almost always framed as either a great mystery or a case of weak men screwing up feminism (or both).Examples of this concern abound, from Aunt Haley’s last three posts, to the divorced single mother who found out men weren’t willing to spend very much to court her, to the woman in Vox’s recent post lamenting that her 59 year old friend was only offered half a sandwich...

    What if there never was Global warming, what if it has always been Global Weather Warfare? Recent super tornados dubbed “Killer Tornadoes” have cut a swath across seven southern states of the United States. Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia,East Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Tennessee and Virginia all have been hit by abnormally sized and super strengthened tornadoes costing nearly 300 lives and estimates of billions of dollars of property damage. (see here, here and here) But what if these recent tornadoes and hurricane Katrina in 2005 were not simply capricious acts of nature, what if these devastating destructive acts were the surgical strikes...

    WASHINGTON - California's environmental activists criticized President George W. Bush's global warming proposals Tuesday as lukewarm, half-measures if compared with the state's tough laws reducing the emission of greenhouse gases. While advocates praised the president for highlighting global warming in his State of the Union address, they said they are skeptical of his plan to increase the supply of alternative fuels to 35 billion gallons and set new fuel economy standards. Many compared Bush's vow to cut greenhouse-gas emissions by 18 percent through 2012 with California's target of reducing emissions 25 percent by 2020. "As usual, California sets stricter standards...

    President George W. Bush's staff are mad as hell and they're not taking it anymore. They charged that the junior senator from New York, Hillary Rodham Clinton was "out of bounds" when she said Monday that the Bush administration was "one of the worst" in US history and compared the Republican House to "a plantation." The former First Lady said this at a rally in Harlem to honor Dr. Martin Luther King. Senator Clinton shared the stage with Rev. Al Sharpton and New York City Councilman Charles Barron who once said he'd like to walk up to a white man...

Police responded to a burglary alarm at the Fergus Falls restaurant early Monday and surrounded the building. When officers entered, they discovered that the burglar had tried to hide in the ceiling. He fell through and tried hiding in an oven instead. "The guy was only half-baked when he was picked up..."

    Half-baked Barbara By John McCaslin October 7, 2005 It's not easy being the master of ceremonies for a roast when half of the roasters don't show up. Ask political commentator Mark Shields, who found himself in that uncomfortable position Wednesday evening as the Spina Bifida Association attempted to put TV personality Barbara Walters in the "hot seat" at the Hyatt Regency Washington. "This is more like a bake-off," a visibly embarrassed Mrs. Walters said after the roasting, expressing disappointment that Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton of New York and fellow roaster Sen. Mary L. Landrieu of Louisiana were no-shows. As it...

This year we were given a new slogan, "The Impossible will come Alive in 2005". As the veil of darkness begins to come down over nations and regions, along with great shakings will come great breakthroughs; signs, wonders, healings and a spectacular release of miracles in impossible circumstances. This year, although we are ultimately poised to gain much ground, there...

    Putin: Ally or Terrorist? by William F. Jasper Counting Vladimir Putin as an ally against terrorism ignores his career in the murderous KGB/FSB and his ongoing support for terrorist regimes and organizations. ‘‘Lena Goncharuk, aged 38, said that she was the only one to survive out of a group of six who were ordered out of the cellar where they had been hiding and shot at point blank range. Resting in her hospital bed, her voice barely rising above a whisper, she said she had survived only by pretending to be dead." So reported Paul Wood from the Chechen border...

The audience will consist of several hundred invited supporters. Kerry is expected to criticize President Bush's handling of the Iraq War. The Museum Center is the location in which President Bush two years ago outlined his case for war with Iraq.Political analysts have been urging Kerry to spend more time attacking the President, and less time discussing his record in Vietnam, and he seems to have...
