  1. That article gets me sick to my stomach. This country is at a crossroads of destiny of either letting the money hungry media turn America into a State without concience or giving voice to Americans that are fighting for what they know is right and wrong. This is not a choice young voters can make on their own. I am making sure my kids do not use Craigslist anymore. Any web site that condones sex in public locations should be shut down.
  2. You Demajerks are more interested in “mandating lies” than giving President Bush’s new strategy of increasing troops in Iraq a chance to work. Have you ever thought that Osama bin Laden motive is to drive the West out of the Middle East and establish a Muslim empire. If that happens we might as kiss our freedoms goodbye.
  3. President George W. Bush is a better stuward of the 'environment than Al Gore. Look over the descriptions of the following two houses and se if you can tell which belongs to an environmentalist: House # 1 A 20-room mansion (not including 8 bathrooms) heated by natural gas. Add on a pool (and a pool house) and a separate guesthouse all heated by gas. In one month alone this mansion consumes more energy than the average American house household in an ENTIRE YEAR! The average bill for electricity and natural gas runs over $2,400 a month. In natural gas alone (which last time we checked was a fossil fuel), this property consumes more than 20 times the national average for an American home. This house is not in a northern or midwestern “snow belt,” either. It’s in the South. House # 2 Designed by an architecture professor at a leading national university, this house incorporates every “green” feature current home construction can provide. The house contains only 4,000 square feet (4 bedrooms) and is nestled on arid high prairie in the American southwest, A central closet in the house holds geothermal heat pumps drawing ground water through pipes sunk 300 feet into the ground. The water (usually 67 degrees F) heats the house in winter and cools it in summer. The system uses no fossil fuels such as oil or natural gas, and it consumes 25 percent of the electricity required for a conventional heating/cooling system. Rainwater from the roof is collected and funneled into a 25,000-gallon underground cistern. Wastewater from showers, sinks and toilets goes into underground purifying tanks and then into the cistern. The collected water then irrigates the land surrounding the house. Flowers and shrubs native to the area blend the property into the surrounding rural landscape. House # 1 – (20-room energy guzzling mansion) is outside of Nashville, Tennessee. It is the abode of that renowned “Global Warming” environmentalist and filmmaker, Al Gore. House # 2 – (model eco-friendly house) is on a ranch near Crawford, Texas. Also known as “the Texas White House,” it is the private residence of the President of the United States, George W. Bush. So whose house is gentler on the environment? Yet another story you WON’T hear on CNN, CBS, ABC, NBC, and MSNBC or read bout in the New York Times or the Washington Post. Indeed, for Mr. Gore (the bore), it’s truly “an inconvenient truth” – the title of his Oscar winning documentary on “Global Warming.” For the record, “Global Warming” is caused by the sun’s flares every 1,500 years, not by human generated pollution, another myth or lie launched by this perpetrator of “Junk Science.”
  4. It seems Verizon has taken out a patent on the Internet. All of it. We know this as a result of that court case in which Verizon is trying to sue competitor Vonage out of business. Vonage offers telephone service over Internet connections, and so takes customers away from Verizon. In tried-and-true form, Verizon filed suit and a silly District Court ruling (currently being appealed) awarded Verizon $58 million plus a piece of Vonage’s revenues. But the interesting part comes as part of the decision. Here are three claims upheld by the U.S. District Court, as quoted from the decision that could cost Vonage big time: “6. A method as in claim 1, wherein the public packet data communication network is a packet switched network. 7. A method as in claim 6, wherein the packet switched network comprises a system of interlinked data networks using TCP/IP protocol. 8. A method as in claim 7, wherein the system of interlinked data networks comprises the Internet.” Look closely at what those supposedly valid claims describe. A public packet data communications network? A network using TCP/IP? Interlinked data networks? Verizon has patented the Internet. The point of the Vonage suit is not to enforce a patent — it’s to crush the competition and if it takes staking a claim to the Internet to to it, then that’s what it takes. We certainly hope that a court which actually knows something about patents will reverse this ruling later this month when the case is heard in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit. In the meantime, it’s valuable to step back and ponder the hubris of a company that portends to patent the Internet — and gets away with it. This is not an isolated example of a telephone company asserting its muscle. AT&T and Qwest (along with Sprint) blocked calls to free conference-call services, allegedly over a dispute for payments. These services are used by non-profits, which suddenly found themselves being directed to higher-priced services offered by AT&T and Qwest. There are FCC actions in the works, and an antitrust suit has been filed. For those of us who want a Net Neutrality policy, the old adage is true: You’re not paranoid if they really are after you. Or, to put it in context of the 100-year history of anticompetitive behavior by the phone industry: Genetics wins.
  5. Maybe we should boycott the Europeans!!!
  6. The Democrats cannot stop trying to micromanage the War in Iraq, despite the fact that they still have no plan for victory. First, they put forward their 'slow-bleed' withdrawal strategy, which would have gradually reduced resources for our men and women in uniform while they were still in harm's way. The resulting uproar from around the country forced them to backtrack. This week, Nancy Pelosi and John Murtha waited until the President was out of the country before announcing their next attempt to take over the duties of the commander in chief: they want to set a date certain at which we will leave Iraq, whether that nation is stable or not. We all want our troops to come home, not just from Iraq, but from every front in the War on Terror. But Republicans understand that how the war ends matters. Does it end with the United States being chased from the Middle East and leaving Iraq in the hands of terrorists? Or does it end with a free Iraq working as an ally against Islamic fascists? The terrorists are not naïve, and they are not stupid. If we tell them that we will leave Iraq on a certain date no matter what, then they know that all they have to do is last that long. And they will. Even some Democrats are concerned with the Pelosi-Murtha attempts to force a withdrawal from Iraq. According to the Washington Post, Democrat Representative Stephanie Herseth responded to the latest Pelosi-Murtha plan by saying "There's a fine line that I hope will not be blurred between micromanaging the war and assuring accountability." Democrat Representative Dan Boren said, "It's still micromanaging the war." Nancy Pelosi and John Murtha can put different faces on their plans. They can try to spin us every time they unveil a new version. But in the end, their only goal is to force the President to withdraw before Iraq is stable. The result would be disastrous. If we leave too soon, we will be leaving Iraq in the hands of vicious terrorists. Not only will they terrorize the Iraqi people, but they will turn Iraq into a base of operations. It will be like Afghanistan was before we defeated the Taliban, with one major difference: Iraq has oil, which would mean unlimited resources for our enemies. We cannot allow that to happen. We cannot allow al Qaeda to reconstitute in Iraq. We must keep them on the run. And that means we must defeat the latest Pelosi-Murtha attempt to force an early withdrawal from Iraq.
  7. The mother of former Playboy playmate and model Anna Nicole Smith blamed drugs Friday for her daughter’s sudden death that ended an extraordinary tabloid life at just 39. “I think she had too many drugs, just like Danny," her mother, Vergie Arthur, told ABC’s “Good Morning America” today, referring to Smith's son. “I tried to warn her about drugs and the people she hung around with. She didn’t listen. “She was too drugged up.” Smith’s attorney, Ron Rale, said the one-time reality TV star had been ill for several days with a fever and was still depressed over the death five months ago of her 20-year-old son from what a private medical examiner determined was a combination of methadone and two antidepressants. On Thursday, authorities say, a private nurse found Smith unconscious in her room at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino and called 911. A bodyguard performed CPR, Seminole Police Chief Charlie Tiger said, but Smith was declared dead at a hospital. Later Thursday, two sheriff’s deputies carried out at least eight brown paper bags sealed with red evidence tape from Smith’s hotel room. Edwina Johnson, chief investigator for the Broward County Medical Examiner’s Office, said the cause of death was under investigation and an autopsy would be conducted Friday. If Smith died of natural causes, the findings will likely be announced quickly, but definitive results could take weeks, said Dr. Jose Perper, who was to perform the autopsy. “I am not a prophet, and I cannot tell you before the autopsy what I am going to find,” he said. Through the ’90s and into the 21st Century, Smith was famous for being famous, a pop-culture punchline because of her up-and-down weight, her Marilyn Monroe looks, her exaggerated curves, her little-girl voice, her ditzy-blonde persona and her over-the-top revealing outfits. Recently, she lost a reported 69 pounds and became a spokeswoman for TrimSpa, a weight-loss supplement. In recent TV appearances, her speech was often slurred and she seemed out of it. Some critics said she seemed drugged. “Undoubtedly it will be found at the end of the day that drugs featured in her death as they did in the death of poor Daniel,” said Michael Scott, a former attorney for Smith in the Bahamas. Rale said he had talked to her on Tuesday or Wednesday, and she had flu symptoms and a fever and was still grieving over her son. He dismissed claims that her death was related to drugs as “a bunch of nonsense.” “Poor Anna Nicole,” he said. “She’s been the underdog. She’s been besieged ... and she’s been trying her best and nobody should have to endure what she’s endured.” The Texas-born Smith was a topless dancer at a strip club before she made the cover of Playboy magazine in 1992. She became Playboy’s playmate of the year in 1993. She was also signed to a contract with Guess jeans, appearing in TV commercials, billboards and magazine ads. In 1994, she married 89-year-old oil tycoon J. Howard Marshall II, owner of Great Northern Oil Co. After his death the following year, she engaged in a protracted legal fight with her former stepson, E. Pierce Marshall, over whether she had a right to the estate. A federal court in California awarded Smith $474 million. That was later overturned. But in May, the U.S. Supreme Court revived her case, ruling that she deserved another day in court. Smith starred in her own reality TV series, “The Anna Nicole Show,” in 2002-04. She also appeared in movies, performing a bit part in “The Hudsucker Proxy” in 1994. Smith was born Vickie Lynn Hogan on Nov. 28, 1967, in Houston, one of six children. Her parents split up when she was a toddler, and she was raised by her mother, a deputy sheriff. She dropped out after 11th grade when she was expelled for fighting, and worked as a waitress and then a cook at Jim’s Krispy Fried Chicken restaurant in Mexia. She married 16-year-old fry cook Bill Smith in 1985, giving birth to Daniel before divorcing two years later.
  8. This is so sad. She was a beautiful woman that got caught up in the wrong crowd. I think you are right that she was killed by Stern. He was seen flushing Methadone down the toilet at the home he shared with Smith in The Bahamas shortly after his partner's son was found dead in the hospital room where she delivered her baby daughter. My friend just sent me the video of her being taken to the Medical Examiner's office. http://us.video.aol.com/video.index.adp?mo...;pmmsid=1839971 .
  9. What a tragedy. She was so beautiful, but hurting inside. She will be missed. Anna has been bombarded by the media ever since giving birth in the Bahamas and then tragically losing her elder son just three days later. A series of allegations surrounding the paternity of Smith's daughter have arisen, leading to a massive amount of stress for the actress/former Playboy model. Now, Smith is making headlines again after she reportedly collapsed at a Florida Hard Rock Casino. Was it suicide? Or was she killed, knowing that all the money will go to her kid, and the father will get the money in trust. As of 4:00 p.m., the Broward County Medical Examiner had been dispatched to retrieve the Anna's body. We should know the cause of death by 9:30 am tomorrow morning. I smell a Law and Order, Ripped from the headlines episode. If anyone is interested here is their number. 5301 S.W. 31st Avenue, Fort Lauderdale, FL 33312 Main - 954-327-6500 FAX - 954-327-6580 Smith was allegedly rushed to hospital after she collapsed at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Hollywood, Florida. MSNBC reports that a Hollywood fire department spokesperson said Anna Nicole Smith was unresponsive when the rescue unit arrived at the scene. TMZ has reported that emergency responders performed CPR at the scene, and that a breathing apparatus had to be inserted into Smith's throat. Anna Nicole Smith was then rushed to Memorial Regional Hospital just after 2:00p.m. local time. Media reports indicate that Anna Nicole Smith was found to be unconscious and unresponsive in her hotel room at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino. Further details of the incident have not been released. News of Anna Nicole Smith's collapse come just days after Smith and the diet company TrimSpa were named in a class-action lawsuit that alleges the company's marketing of their weight loss pill is false or misleading. The lawsuit is aimed at trying to stop Anna Nicole and TrimSpa from making claims that their pill can make people lose large amounts of weight. Smith was named in the lawsuit as she is the spokesperson from TrimSpa. The class-action lawsuit is the most recent trouble for the former Playboy model turned heiress turned reality TV star. The former star of The Anna Nicole Show gave birth to her daughter, Dannielynn Hope Marshall Stern, on September 7 of last year. Though the paternity of the baby was later questioned, Anna Nicole Smith claimed the father of the child was her longtime personal attorney, Howard K. Stern. Smith's former boyfriend, Larry Birkhead, has challenged the paternity in court, and Smith now has until February 21 to submit the child to paternity testing. Three days after the birth of her daughter, Smith's 20-year-old son, Daniel Smith, died suddenly in his mother's hotel room. Smith hired forensic pathologist Cyril Wecht to perform a private autopsy of Daniel Smith, which revealed that Daniel died of a lethal combination of the prescription drugs Zoloft, Lexapro and methadone. For those that are interested in giving condolences to the family you can call Ron Rale at 1-310-207-8228.
  10. The AP reports that Ahmed Omar Abu Ali, 23, who had been detained in Saudi Arabia as a suspected terrorist was charged today with both supporting Al Qaeda, and conspiring to assassinate President Bush: Ahmed Omar Abu Ali, 23, a U.S. citizen, made an initial appearance Tuesday in U.S. District Court but did not enter a plea. He claimed that he was tortured while detained in Saudi Arabia since June of 2003 and offered through his lawyer to show the judge his scars. The federal indictment said that in 2002 and 2003 Abu Ali and an unidentified co-conspirator discussed plans for Abu Ali to assassinate Bush. They discussed two scenarios, the indictment said, one in which Abu Ali "would get close enough to the president to shoot him on the street" and, alternatively, "an operation in which Abu Ali would detonate a car bomb." According to the indictment, Abu Ali obtained a religious blessing from another unidentified co-conspirator to assassinate the president. To make this even more sickening, more than 100 supporters of Abu Ali were in the courtroom and, as the AP reports, "laughed when the charge was read aloud alleging that he conspired to assassinate Bush." They should all go to prison.
