Another anti-Fred screed, this one from across the pond:
...47 mile walk to grammar school (whatever), still has nothing on these kids.
and speech insulting to terrorists, gets you put on trial:
But, by the same token, I will NEVER become a Democrat because of gutter scraping crap like this (same article):
U.S. Rep. Gary Ackerman (D-Bayside) was also incensed about the lack of funding given to the Empire State.
“Al Qaeda hates us,” he said. “President Bush isn’t crazy about us, either.”

A value added tax is a nice way of taxing a consumer, but not really tax them, because the tax doesn't show up on their receipt. Instead the tax is on the guy who makes the food, the guy that packages the food, the guy that ships the food and the guy that sells the food. No harm, no foul for the consumer, right? WRONG. The consumer still pays a higher amount approximating the amount of the collected taxes already accumulated on their purchase. In this case, 17.5 percent.
So, only the people who eat fatty foods are targeted. What about those who eat high carbohydrate products? High calorie products? High nitrate products? Non-organic products? High cholestrol products? Products high in artifical flavors and colors? High sodium products? They have all been shown to encourage obesity, disease, and/or other health problems.
My point? Opening the door to taxing food for fatty content means opening the door to taxing food for whatever the zeitgeist doctors and nutritionists decide is the demon food of the day. We don't need a bureacracy to decide on a health quotient for the foods we buy and then tax us accordingly.
That is the direction that taxing fatty foods leads us to.
We need to be wary of Creepin Nutritionism.
The Duke lacrosse hoax continues to be the gift that keeps on giving:
Note the headline here: 'Nobel laureate calls for removal of Bush'. You would think the quote of her saying she could murder the President might draw a bit more attention.
Cindy, on Democrats:
All readers must wash their hands after reading this post. We are talking New Jersy politics here.
Any feller that spends $170,000 on 'Love Dolls' because they don't 'cheat on you' or 'betray you', well, you can finish that sentence.
Let's just call this, the exaltation of incompetence:
And its not a blip but big mo:
Compared to our previous survey of these matchups, conducted early in June, Clinton has lost a net five points against both Thompson and Romney. In May, Clinton led both of these GOP hopefuls by three points.
UPDATE: The impeached ex-Prez can't just bury his head for a fortnight, or run off to Dubai to give a speech, but, of course, feels the need to comment on the Libby commutation.
UPDATE: The White House fires back:
WASHINGTON (AP) - The White House on Thursday made fun of former President Clinton and his wife, Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton, for criticizing President Bush's decision to erase the prison sentence of former aide I. Lewis "Scooter" Libby.
"I don't know what Arkansan is for chutzpah, but this is a gigantic case of it," presidential spokesman Tony Snow said.
Rep. John Conyers, D-Mich., has scheduled hearings on Bush's commutation of Libby's 2 1/2-year sentence.
"Well, fine, knock himself out," Snow said of Conyers. "I mean, perfectly happy. And while he's at it, why doesn't he look at January 20th, 2001?"Refreshing.

"national reassessment of student life" - I call for a national reassessment of drunken, stoned stripper life
"campus ethics" - I think prosecutorial ethics are a bit of a pressing lesson
"entitlement and privilege" - maybe they 'bought' justice, but they shouldn't have had to. It is the duty of the JUSTICE system to provide it freely.
"academic freedom" - the right to accuse innocent students of grievous crimes doth not fall under the banner of academic freedom. The Duke 88 be damned.
"gender relations" - drunken and emotionally unstable strippers should do as little relatin as possible
"underage alcohol use" - yawn
"exposure to liability for failure to provide a safe environment, and the role of over-involved parents" - these two are so incoherent and ridiculous - I'll just relegate them to the 'wtf' category
"sympathy for the many who are unfairly accused" - shouldn't this lesson be directed towards the lying accusers and their enablers in the JUSTICE system?
