Revealing that her understanding of public health alerts has not evolved from the Bush-generated panics over color-coded terror alerts and anthrax attacks, the head of Concerned Women for America, Wendy Wright, says, "some people" blame the Obama administration for the political timing of the swine flu alert, since it happened one day before today's cloture vote on the nomination of Kansas Governor Kathleen Sebelius to head HHS, a critical department.http://oxdown.firedoglake.com/diary/5001
There are also moral repercussions stemming from homosexual behavior as evidenced by the fact that one third of all sexual crimes against children are committed by homosexuals even though they are representative of only one percent of the population. Pedophilia has even been called central to the gay lifestyle. The agenda of the North American Man Boy Love Association (NAMBLA) is to lower the age of consent so that sex with children will be legal.
So, Miss California may have been influenced in her attitudes towards gays by the research of a known hate group. I can't wait for her next interview.
This is quite impressive:
General Electric says it has achieved a breakthrough in digital storage technology that will allow standard-size discs to hold the equivalent of 100 DVDs.
The storage advance, which G.E. is announcing on Monday, is just a laboratory success at this stage. The new technology must be made to work in products that can be mass-produced at affordable prices.
But optical storage experts and industry analysts who were told of the development said it held the promise of being a big step forward in digital storage with a wide range of potential uses in commercial, scientific and consumer markets.
"This could be the next generation of low-cost storage," said Richard Doherty, an analyst at Envisioneering, a technology research firm.
I still laugh when I think about paying $196 bucks for 4 megs of ram to throw into my Gateway 2000 486 SX-33 to double the memory to 8 megs.
Blowjobs put our nation in peril - war crimes, not so much
The Weekly Yambag's Bill "Always Wrong" Kristol pulls another one out of his well-worn ass:
"We have been through a dark and painful chapter in our history," President Obama said when he ordered the release of the Justice Department interrogation memos. Actually, no. Not at all. We were attacked on 9/11. We responded to that by using the Constitution as a beer-coaster and... what? Oh. The dark and painful chapter we have to fear is Obama's, in which politicians preen moralistically as they throw patriotic officials who helped keep this country safe to the wolves... Obama throws the door open to years of lawsuits and investigations that will do injustice to those who've served the country and will demoralize those still seeking to do so."
Yeah -- tell that to Bill Clinton, you hypocritical douchewad.
Analyzing the polls post-tea party shows Obama's approval has either been steady or has increased, right- and wrong-track significantly better, and the GOP has either declined or are still in the same sorry state...
There is a warning sign for the GOP in the new poll: 21 percent of those surveyed said they identify as Republicans, the fewest to do so in a Post-ABC poll in more than 25 years.
[T]here are no signs of a dramatic rebound for the party, and the chance of Republicans winning control of either chamber in the 2010 midterm elections is zero. Not "close to zero." Not "slight" or "small." Zero.
"As a matter of reality, in the first 100 days, [the Republican't Party] has not done anything to improve its political position with regards to the fact that it has been a shrinking entity."
So much for the huge populist uprising! The sense of rebellion brewing!
Poll: majority of American-hatin' Minnesotans also hate Norm Coleman
A new Star-Tribune poll makes it pretty clear that the people of the North Star State have had it with their former Senator.
Yeah! God bless America.
Dueling headlines at freetardia today almost cause a blip in the space-time continuum:
BTW, 'TOTUS' = telepromper of the US. Sigh. This is why we can NEVER let up. Ever.
69 percent of America approve of Obama, + the highest 'right track' numbers in years.
Fifty percent now say the United States is headed in the right direction, up 31 points since the end of the Bush administration.
"Obama leads the Republicans in Congress in trust to handle the economy by a garish 61-24 percent."
