An Ol' Broad's Ramblings
President Bush on Friday morning said that Democrats and Republicans will “rise to the occasion” to pass an economic rescue plan, as the White House appeared resigned to working through the weekend with Congress to aim for a deal by Sunday.
Congress doesn’t ‘rise to the occasion’. They stoop to new lows.
A detective has flown to Missouri to interview Sweet Cherry Ann Halliburton, 29, in the September 2007 death of her son. Ms. Halliburton was taken into custody by Missouri authorities this week after she confessed to killing her 6-week-old daughter.
Ms. Halliburton may have also been investigated by authorities in South Dakota for the death of another child and there may be more cases, Fort Worth police said.
“These are all her natural, biological children,” Fort Worth police Lt. Paul Henderson told WFAA-TV. “And there are even reports she had six or seven kids, so we could be looking at a very horrible situation, a very horrific situation depending on what they find out in Missouri.”
If this bitch doesn’t get the death penalty, then I’m all for making sure she never has another child….EVER!
With the campaign’s first debate in doubt, the arrival here of both presidential contenders brought chaos and confusion to the capital as a $700 billion bailout deal that appeared at hand broke down amid a flurry of bitter recriminations.
Well, according to the “news alert”, McCain will go to the debate, which he should. At least HE knew he had a job to do, unlike BHO. Well, since B. Hussein has been running for POTUS from the first day he stepped into the Senate, I guess he wasn’t aware he was hired to do a job. The kid has NO leadership qualities, and mark my word….he would be a miserable failure in such a high office. Shoot, he’s been a failure in EVERY office.
In a conflicting version of the incident, the US military denied the aircraft had flown into Pakistani territory. There were no casualties nor were the helicopters damaged, NATO said.
The shooting took place amid rising tension between Pakistan and the United States after US troops launched missile attacks and a helicopter-borne ground assault into Pakistan this month.
“Allies in the war on terror”? Pfft! Seems to me they are a big part of the problem!
The US is poised to lose its role as a global financial “superpower” in the wake of the financial crisis, Peer Steinbrück, German finance minister, said on Thursday as he called for a regulatory crackdown on financial markets.
“The US will lose its status as the superpower of the world financial system. This world will become multipolar” with the emergence of stronger, better capitalised centres in Asia and Europe, Mr Steinbrück told the German parliament.
“The world will never be the same again.”
Way to go D.C.! Screwing us big time…..again! Personally, I don’t give a flying flip what the rest of the world thinks. What I do care about is how long will “We, the People” keep putting up with the BS that flies out of the swamp?
The protests are held every year on the last Friday of the holy fasting month of Ramadan to oppose Israel’s control over Jerusalem and to support the Palestinian cause.
The celebrations “…..were initiated by the late Founder of the Islamic Republic of Iran Imam Khomeini to voice support for the oppressed Palestinian nation and protest of the Islamic Ummah against Zionist usurpers,” according to the official Iranian news agency Irna.
Protesters chanted slogans such as “Death to America” and “Death to Israel” during the demonstration, reported Irna.
I continuously find it really odd that Muslims are so attached to Jerusalem, since Mohamed had never…EVER….been there.
Bradford, a Tiger football player, was in his car when he was shot and managed to drive away from his attackers. He was found mortally wounded a few blocks away.
The suit filed on Thursday, which asks for $4 million in damages, alleges the university was negligent in its control of the campus by not having more security officers and surveillance cameras.
As horrible as this tragedy was, as much pain and anger as these parents are going through, I do not understand why the school would be responsible. No matter how much security a school puts in place, evil will find a way. The murderers are responsible for their actions.
Two bogies of the train derailed following the blast which took place near Bahawalpur in Punjab province, local Geo TV reported.
It said six people were killed and several injured in the blast. The dead included a woman and three children. The injured, said to be in critical condition, were rushed to Victoris Hospital in Bahawalpur while rescue teams have also been sent to the accident site, the report said.
At the rate they’re going, one can only hope that the Pakistanis are going to murder enough of their own people, they won’t be a threat in the future.
A century and a half after California built its first railroad, the Golden State may be about to launch the most ambitious rail project undertaken by any state—a nearly 800-mile system of bullet trains that can top 200 mph.
On Nov. 4, California voters will decide whether to authorize the sale of $9.9 billion in state bonds to help pay for a 465-mile high-speed rail line linking Anaheim, Los Angeles, Fresno and San Francisco. Planners say it would be the first leg of a system that would complement air travel and eventually include stations in Sacramento, San Diego and Oakland.
Considering recent events involving trains in California, is this really such a good idea?
German police raided a plane in Cologne just before it was taking off Friday and arrested two ethnic Somalis, saying they found a suicide note that claimed the men wanted to fight a holy war and die in a terror attack.
A 23-year-old Somali man and a 24-year-old German man born in Somalia were removed from the plane without incident after the surprise raid at Cologne-Bonn Airport, a spokeswoman for North Rhine-Westphalia state police told The Associated Press.
Somalis sure are starting to make the news a lot lately. I wonder…..
Israel has granted amnesty to 10 members of Fatah’s military wing, the al-Aqsa Martyrs Brigades, according to a prominent Israeli daily.
According to a report by Yedioth Ahronoth, the 10 will be pardoned as part of an agreement between Israel and the Palestinian Authority to mark the Eid al-Fitr, the holiday that ends Ramadan, the holy Muslim fasting month.
The pardon follows reports that Israel handed over a list of 49 wanted men to be granted amnesty after a three-month probationary period.
Why would anyone grant terrorists amnesty????? They can call themselves anything they want, but terrorists are still terrorists!
