    not really
    you gotta remember the day your friends passed on 09.11.01 which lead to WAR response

    the US government and their CO-WORKERS basically set them up

    WE had prior knowledge.. a certain mayor knew not to fly that day.. the Latter Day Saints decided to not meet in the towers for a meeting they had previously scheduled and the bosses forced them to KEEP on working as the building burned

    this country had some very sly & vindictive individuals working behind the scenes on 09.11.01

  36. I know we have had this conversation before, but if the F-35 Program is any example of how the private sector will handle space travel why bother and why not let NASA continue do what it has done for years (and have cost over runs and delays)???

  39. James B, can you post the following post about past Idol winners and diversity:

    Season 1: Kelly Clarkson (Texas-2002): Anglo

    Season 2: Ruben Studdard (Alabama-2003): African American

    Season 3: Fantasia Barrino (North Carolina-2004): African American

    Season 4: Carrie Underwood (Oklahoma-2005): Anglo

    Season 5: Taylor Hicks (Alabama-2006): Anglo

    Season 6: Jordin Sparks (Arizona-2007): African American

    Season 7: David Cook (Missouri-2008): Anglo

    Season 8: Kris Allen (Arkansas-2009): Anglo

    Season 9: ???

    American Idol is still going to be pressured to have a Latino or Asian winner on the show.

    The closest an Asian came to cracking the Final 2 was Jasmine Trias in 2004, and David Archuleta (2008) and Diana DeGarmo: she’s mixed for sure (2004) were the only 2 Latinos to make the Final 2.

    Allison Iraheta (2009)was a heartbeat away from making the Top 3, maybe even the Final 2 last year, had it not been for the judges pimping for Adam and Danny, which backfired bigtime when Kris picked up all of Allison and Danny’s voters.

  41. For everyone on the Dog and James B or Daniel G., post the Bill White tax return problem:

    http://www.youtube.com/user/LiberalBillWhite

    It’s not a good sign when the former Houston mayor refuses to release his tax returns on his business transactions and even Houston Mayor Annise Parker (D) slams the way White spend money during his 6 years in office.

  42. James B, here’s another post of the Idol Runners-Up

    Season 1: Justin Giuriani-Biracial

    Season 2: Clay Aiken-Anglo

    Season 3: Diana DeGarmo-Biracial (half Latina and half Anglo)

    Season 4: Bo Bice-Anglo

    Season 5: Katherine McPhee-Anglo

    Season 6: Blake Lewis-Anglo

    Season 7: David Archuleta-Latino

    Season 8: Adam Lambert-Anglo

    Season 9: ???

    Some experts see a Final 2 showdown between Michael “Big Mike” Lynche and Crystal Bowersox, but we’ll see.

  43. My PLATOON mates Nate Daniel. Kyle, Corey. and Vertigo

    As Michael Moore pointed out, there is no true “ban on preexisting conditions“. That talking-point is a complete falsehood. First of all, the clause does not even kick in for 4 whole years, so the Insurance Companies can deny care and eligibility all that they want to for the next 4 whole years. Secondly, when the clause does kick in, it only imposes just a very small penalty (a fine) if they reject people. So for an Insurance Company, it is going to be much cheaper for them to pay a simple $5000 fine, then it would ever be to cover a citizen with a health problem of any consequence (especially someone with a past cancer diagnosis). So, this is all just a big lie. There is no “ban on pre-existing conditions”.
    The other completely false talking point is that” “the bill will get 30 million new people covered.” It does nothing of the kind. All the bill does is to mandate that people write horribly expensive checks to the Insurance Monopolies, and become their victims and slaves — with no choices and no options. But no actual “care” is ever assured. The Insurance Companies set all the rules, and can continue to deny treatments, deny surgeries, deny tests, and even terminate your entire policy (for a small fine) if you get too expensive.
    So the entire rationale for this bill that is being made by Obama, the Democrats in Congress, and even so-called “progressive” groups like MoveOn.dog is a lie.
    It’s a LIE folks. But, unlike others who don’t even bother to read the fine print, Dennis Kucinich knows all of this.

  44. First, Peter Graves dies at 83. Now Fess Parker at 85. As celebrities die in threes, one more to go. I’ll say Dennis Hopper’s next. In January, he had 1 month left to live due to prostate cancer. It’s been 2 months since I learned of that. He is 73 years old.
