    ... Infection spreading?
  • Islamofascism : Nuke strike in US by this weekend?? ... "American Hiroshima" on August 6th?
    (that will be the 60yr anniversary of the Hiroshima bombing)
    "It is as if Bin Laden started by scheduling 'American Hiroshima' for 8-6-2005
    and then worked backwards to arrive at 9-11-2001 as the precursor," he speculates
    ... or maybe on the preceding Friday? Or, not at all. Developing.

  • Pennsylvania : More on the Legislature's recent raise ... :
    16 percent to 34 percent, on top of the 5.2 percent cost-of-living pay hike
    ...
    In Pennsylvania, the base compensation for state legislators after this latest pay grab ranges from $81,050 to $145,553, not counting the free cars, gas, generous defined-benefit pensions, fully paid prescription coverage, free dental and vision insurance, free parking, "walking around money," fully paid life insurance and long-term care insurance, expense accounts, and the no-receipt $128 daily reimbursement for every day the Legislature is in session, whether the legislator spends the money or not

  • China : A pre-revolutionary environment ... "Communist ideology has been discarded, with nothing else replacing it"
  • Left : 'Democrats of the World: Untie!' ... :
    This question is both a threat and a promise. If the Republicans face a weak opposition which is philosophically alveolate and inchoate, then expect party discipline to slacken (see also, Bill Frist). And if other traditionally Democratic groups go the same route, we will see a party realizing what it means to be politically accountable.
    ... I am a little less pessimistic about this, but valid concerns nonetheless!

  • A Story, bit by bit : ... "The organization and the crime" : Part 1 , Part 2, Part 3, Part 4, Part 5...
  • DaisyCutter brings us a "hypothetical" journey :
    This DC exclusive mini-series is inspired by those contend that Pres. Bush is a “war criminal, that the Iraq War is “illegal”, “unjust”, “the wrong war at the wrong time”, “ill-advised”, etc., but nonetheless claim they “support our troops.” This series is fictional, but it is based upon current events. Any resemblance between any character herein and/or between current world events is not designed to impugn the patriotism of any Leftist … as we know that the Left loves the military, “supports the troops” and it is completely outlandish to even imply otherwise.
    ... having said that, and without further adieu : Part 1, Part 2, Part 3 ... truly amazing, and to be continued!
