    On the death a 16 y/o girl, who died after her father called authorities saying, "I killed my daughter.", this:

    "I don't want the public to think that this is really an Islamic issue or an immigrant issue," said Mohamed Elmasry of the Canadian Islamic Congress. "It is a teenager issue."

    Yes, because we all know how pervasive the parents-killing-their-teenagers-for-disobeying problem is. Get a clue, bud. At minimum this is a cultural problem, and that aspect of culture isn't inherent in Ontario.

    lets see that mug of your scoot - like a dogs buttocks probably

    "Five senses; an incurably abstract intellect;
    a haphazardly selective memory;
    a set of preconceptions and assumptions
    so numerous that I can never examine more
    than a minority of them-never become conscious
    of them all.
    How much of total reality can such an apparatus let through?"

    Foot in mouth quote from the Huckabee camp...
    "Honestly, because Rush doesn’t think for himself. That’s not necessarily a slap because he’s not paid to be a thinker—he’s an entertainer. I can’t remember the last time that he has veered from the talking points from the DC/Manhattan chattering class. If they were praising Huckabee, he would be too."

    "Also, I have to think that he’s dying to have Hillary in the White House. Bill Clinton made Rush a megastar. Having another Clinton back in power would make him the Leading Voice of the Opposition once again."
    Of course, Rushbo responded and now its a big arsed deal.

    Why attack the leading conservative talk show host?

    Stupid.

    French president hails New Year's Eve largely unmarred by youth unrest


    The Associated Press

    document.writeln('<div id="bodyText" style="font-size: ' + currentTextSize + 'px; line-height: ' + currentLineHeight + 'px;">');







    PARIS: French President Nicolas Sarkozy thanked police officers and firefighters on Tuesday for helping decrease the number of run-ins with rowdy New Year's Eve revelers who have made torching cars an annual problem in the country's troubled neighborhoods.
    The Interior Ministry said 273 cars were set alight overnight on Monday, down nearly 13 percent from the 2006 total of 313 vehicles.
    "Overall there were fewer incidents of arson and almost no clashes between gangs or with the police forces," Sarkozy told a gathering of civil servants who were on duty on Jan. 31. Besides security forces, the audience also included paramedics, doctors and employees of the national train authority.
    "We can be happy," the French leader said.

    No no no, Bush the 1st has dibs on that song. The song was used in George H. W. Bush's campaign in the 1988 election until McFerrin (Who was a Democrat) objected, and the campaign desisted.

    Really? Who said so? Show me the traders and quote them that it was all about recession fears.

    Not to worry Jim. We all know if a Dimocrat is elected in "08" the news will be equally distorted as positive even if the reality is the polar opposite. It's MSM math..

    Repug administration = no way in h3ll we're headlining positive economic news.

    Dimocrat administration = recession.. what's that?

    Leading citizens of Hillaryland are in a rage. Partly at themselves, partly at each other, partly at the situation. It's like it's their turn in Scrabble, and they have no vowels. They look at the board and see nothing but Os.
