41912/rip dick clark 82/Might as well hop on the "chuckle-bus" since the
country is going to the dogs, Stewart reasoned, no question was more front
page worthy than Diane Sawyer’s question for Romney on Monday night: "Who’s
funnier, you or President Obama?", Romneys' quip in front of a small
audience of unemployed voters about how he’s "also unemployed." The awkward
laughter that ensues is enough to gather who won that round. "You don’t
want to heckle your audience," advised Stewart, Obama could be getting
worse. Stewart recalled one failed "spilled milk" joke the president
attempted to make that even had the first lady awkwardly smiling.
"Someone’s sleeping on the couch tonight," he joked/South Sudan repulsed

was parked next to her, The woman repeatedly shot Golden, then snatched the
child from her truck and drove away, according to witness accounts. The
dying woman leaned into the vehicle and tried to take the boy back,
screaming, "My baby-If only the victim looked like Obama, then maybe he
would give a speech about it. You want to know why white people don't march
in the streets when blacks target and PROFILE pregnant white women to KILL
them? Because we aren't surprised. They should have this woman walk through
George Zimmerman's gated community-stupid ugly *** fkin betch she should be
tied to the back of a pickup truck and dragged at least 50 miles then set
on fire-We need to screen health care workers with emotional, mental,
physical, and back round checks to prevent these crimes from occuring ever
again. Give her a fair trail and a short sentence so she could present the
baby to her man, like a trophy or prize. *** animal!-she should be put to
death asap-Her statement: "...Waah! My uterus be broken yo-clearly

trying to suggest that you said something that you emphatically did not
say. Nugent: Absolutely ... I have never in my life threatened anyone's
life. I am incapable of threatening anyone's life. Because, I'm about
positive change. Dana Loesch's talk radio show this afternoon, which was
seemingly broadcast from some kind of alternate universe:-Why are people
defending Ted Nugent...he's not even relevant. He has no power or influence
that doesn't extend beyond a little fringe group of crazies-All it takes is
one crazy person (anyone who agrees with Nuggies wack-job philosophies) who
thinks Ted was speaking directly to him and that he will make Ted happy by
killing democrats, the president, gay people, people who think the NRA is
TOO powerful, anyone who disagrees with crazy Ted. Words are very powerful
when used by "personalities" who may have multiple personalities like
Nugent. He needs to be confined either in a mental institution or Gitmo-
this is what the republicans have come to be, hate mongers, racists, and
bigots-one party, well armed, fundamental Christian theocracy is the
America that the Founders envisioned? Mr. Nugent has the right of free
speech, but there are limits and consequences to crossing the line. "You
can't yell fire in a crowded theater" comes to mind when I hear his words.-
remember when the Dixie Chicks said they were embarrassed
that President Bush was from Texas and America went into hysterics about
how disrespectful it was-Senator Gabrielle Gifford shot in the head. this
is what the republicans have come to be, hate mongers, racists, and
bigots.-She wasn't a senator and the mentally depraved man who committed
the horrific act was leftist-How are the Dixie Chicks doing these
days?- laughed all the way to the bank $$$ and then won a grammy for best
album of the year !!!'s GW doing these
days ;-) -Pretty damn happy and they still have a lot more money and talent
than you!

he is most often portrayed as a nut job.(nyt) Starts Talk Show on Russian
TV Prisoner as Talk Show Host, a cozy chat, even though they weren’t on the
same couch or even on the same continent, still managed to kid around a
little. Nasrallah noted wryly that even the most sophisticated Israeli
decryption technology couldn’t decipher the village slang his young
fighters use over walkie-talkies. No computer analyst, he said, “is going
to understand what the father of the chicken is and why they call him the
father of the chicken.” tough questions about Hezbollah’s support for
President Bashar al-Assad of Syria, suggested corruption and high living
among some members of Hezbollah. (Mr. Assange cited S.U.V.’s, silk robes
and “take-away food” as signs of decadence. He predicted that The Times,
among others, would dismiss him as “an enemy combatant and traitor getting
into bed with the Kremlin.” in bed with the Kremlin, Tuesday’s show he
didn’t put out. Moscow is at odds with Washington over Syria, and RT
accordingly colors its reports from Damascus with sharp digs at the West
and American support of opposition fighters that RT describes as
“terrorists.”  Mr. Nasrallah added with a twinkle, “It’s not going to do
you any good at WikiLeaks, by the way.” The two men laughed companionably
Assange did everything he could to minimize his prisonlike isolation and
behaved surprisingly like a standard network interviewer, Kardashians could
be next.-American media is so slanted. We need the truth about Palestine,
and Hezbollah is not a terrorist organization any more than APAC (the
American Jewish Lobby) is. That's a complete fiction. Let's get Hezbollah
on the mainstream media so we can hear the truth-Funny how Alessandra
waited until the end of her slander, has only reinforced my respect for his
intelligence, open-mindedness and perseverance. My support of WikiLeaks
will continue-sounds a bit vindictive. And compared to US talk shows, I'm
pretty sure that Assange on RT is the one place I WON'T see the
Kardashians!-Or perhaps not. It is evidently too much to expect the alleged
journalist to supply us with the answer to this question. Much easier to
sling mud and innuendo, after all-Does it not occur to Alessandra Stanley
that the people portraying him as a nut job may not be honest and may have
an interest in caricaturing him? What is with the joking, derogatory tone
when even she has to admit that he committed acts of journalism? Does she
think that the documents obtained by Wikileaks were not newsworthy?-So the
consensus here seems to be "America is evil and should be destroyed."
Assange and Hezbollah are pretty good players for that team. Now maybe
Russia too can get back in the game.-Nasrallah that was quoted in the
Lebanon Daily Star in 2002? “If they [the Jews] gather in Israel, it will
save us the trouble of going after them worldwide”-You're not trying to

Stillion has written of the F-35A's air-to-air combat performance that it
“can’t turn, can’t climb, can’t run”, but Lockheed Martin test pilot Jon
Beesley has countered that in an air-to-air configuration the F-35 has
almost as much thrust as weight and a flight control system that allows it
to be fully maneuverable even at a 50-degree angle of attack. Chen Hu,
editor-in-chief of World Military Affairs magazine has said that the F-35
is too costly because it attempts to provide the capabilities needed for
all three American services in a common airframe. Dutch news program NOVA
show interviewed US defense specialist Winslow T. Wheeler and aircraft
designer Pierre Sprey who called the F-35 "heavy and sluggish" as well as
having a "pitifully small load for all that money", and went on to
criticize the value for money of the stealth measures as well as lacking
fire safety measures. His final conclusion was that any air force would be
better off maintaining its fleets of F-16s and F/A-18s compared to buying
into the F-35 program. Lockheed spokesman John Kent has said that the
missing fire-suppression systems would have offered "very small"

provisions-ows thought - of the law. Specifically, a 2000 court decision,
Metropolitan Council Inc. v. City of New York, that ruled that sleeping on
City sidewalks was a Constitutionally-protected form of protest-Washington
is lost in a snarl of confusion, cowardice and wrongheaded ideological
assumptions that threaten to keep the economy in a ditch for a long time.
That prospect is not much discussed in the halls of Congress or the White

Stanton and Susan B. Anthony drafted an amendment to the US Constitution
that would make it illegal to bar citizens from voting based on gender. It
took 42 years for their amendment to be ratified by Congress, but nearly
100 years after that historic decision, it seems the modern GOP hasn't yet
gotten over that vote-you're supposed to believe there is no "War on
Women." Don't buy it. These right-wingers despise and disdain women with an
energy not seen since the end of World War I, and all you have to do is
look at their remarkable record of legislative actions over these past few
months to see the truth of it-some 10 percent of voting-age Americans do
not have the proper ID - with current name and current address - to vote in
the states where the GOP and their friends in ALEC have been pushing
restrictive voter ID laws, In other words, tough luck if you're a woman who
just got married, just got divorced, or are running for your life from an
abusive relationship-Since gaining control of the House in 2010, the
hard-right boys' club that is the GOP in that chamber has vomited up no
less than 916 anti-woman pieces of legislation. Contraception is bad.
Choice is bad. Being an unwed mother is bad. Sex education is bad. women
are bad, not to be trusted, and are to be treated as chattel in all cases.-
financial technocrats have taken over the European ship. Democracy has gone
out the window, all in the name of keeping the central bank independent

should be. A democratically elected government represents the people.
Europeans are being hoodwinked into relinquishing their cherished democracy
to a rogue band of financial pirates, and the rest of the world is not far
behind-ALEC Public Safety & Elections Task Force (known as the Criminal
Justice Task Force until 2009) have approved model bills that promote
for-profit prisons and lengthen prison sentences, criminalize immigrants,
expand the 'war on drugs,' thwart evidence-based pre-trial release programs
