Pete DeGraaf (R) was ready with a shocking retort. DeGraaf said women should plan ahead for situations such as rape because, after all, “I have a spare tire on my car“: picked by Bornbad 6 months ago

Sarah Palin: The Movie
By Sarah Palin

The film is poised to serve as a galvanizing prelude to Palin's prospective presidential campaign — an unconventional reintroduction to the nation that she and her political team have spent months eagerly anticipating, even as Beltway Republicans have largely concluded that she won't run. picked by suebe 6 months ago

Most molester priests are not pedophiles, church claims

 Government mandated sub-prime loans returning
Government mandated sub-prime loans returning
One of the factors that resulted in the economic collapse was the government forcing banks to give loans to people who couldn't pay them back (and banks not resisting very hard). Now the government is back at it, requiring banks to give loans to unqualified applicants and even dictate where they must open up branches. picked by 2manyusernames 6 months ago

Indiana rules: You Can Not Prevent A Police Officer From Illegally Entering Your Home
Since the 13th century, police were required to have a warrant to enter your home. Now in Indiana they've thrown out that right guaranteed by the 4th amendment and have declared you are not allowed to prevent a police officer from entering your home even if the officer is doing so illegally. The Indiana Supreme Court also allowed any warrant to become a knock-less warrant. picked by 2manyusernames 6 months ago

GOP-backed 2012 Defense Authorization Bill Would Make "War on Terror" Permanent, Declare State of Perpetual War
Nearly three dozen House Democrats are calling on Republicans to withdraw a section of the 2012 defense authorization bill that they say would effectively declare a state of permanent war against unnamed Taliban and al Qaeda operatives. A Tuesday letter from House Judiciary Committee Chairman John Conyers Jr. (D-Mich.) and 32 other Democrats argues that affirming continued war against terrorist fo... read full post picked by B-MoreRavensFan 6 months ago

Some American Indians object to ‘Geronimo’ as code for bin Laden raid
Some American Indians are taking the use of "Geronimo" as the code word for Osama bin Laden as an insult. They understandably are upset by using the name of a honored leader who fought to save his people as the name for someone who is considered by some to be the modern Hitler. The government's response is the OPERATION to capture him was codenamed Geronimo, not Osama himself. picked by 2manyusernames 7 months ago

The White House has "backed away", "retreated" and "modified" original claims regarding details of Osama's death
Some of the details given by the White House regarding the operation that ended in Osama's death have now been revised by the White House. They have changed their story and now it seems Osama did not use one of his wives as a shield. Also the prior claim he fought back with a gun has now been altered to the fact that he was not armed. picked by 2manyusernames 7 months ago

Obviously the old saying, "Nothing is certain but death and taxes," is not to be believed anymore. Or rather, only half of it can be believed. Because death, of course, remains as dreaded and inevitable as ever, but with taxes the story is different. "The rich are different from you and me," the famous F.

 The Republican Party and Marijuana
The Republican Party and Marijuana
The GOP might march in lockstep on abortion and tax cuts, but when it comes to pot, things get a bit hazier. Some of the party's presidential candidates have never touched the stuff; more than a few of them inhaled; one of them even got nabbed in a drug bust. In honor of 4/20, here's a quick guide to where the GOP's 2012 contenders stand on pot. picked by B-MoreRavensFan 7 months ago
