Latest stuff from the wire...........
In Canada, a controversial Muslim leader was NOT charged under Candadian Hate Crimes laws for saying that all adult Isaraelis are legitimate targets for Palestinian terrorists. "Although considered distasteful to many, in this context they do not constitute a criminal offense." As stated by a Canadian Police spokesperson. Dr. Mohamad Elmasry offered to resign as President of the Candadian Islamic Congress, but their board refused it. Jewish groups in Candada were outraged and fellow muslims distanced themselves from Dr. Elmasry.
Had this been a gay individual, I am sure that their would have been more of an outcry and even charges brought against such a person for making a statement against gays, but because this was simply a statement made against Jews, I guess made it oky doky by Canuk standards.
The senate has agreed to let us drill for oil inside of our own country in an attempt to liberate ourselves from middle eastern oil.
The Senate, by a 51-49 vote, rejected an attempt by Democrats and GOP moderates to remove a refuge drilling provision from next year's budget, preventing opponents from using a filibuster - a tactic that has blocked repeated past attempts to open the Alaska refuge to oil companies.
The action, assuming Congress agrees on a budget, clears the way for approving drilling in the refuge later this year, drilling supporters said. The House has not included a similar provision in its budget, so the issue is still subject to negotiations later this year to resolve the difference.
The oil industry has sought for more than two decades to get access to what is believed to be billions of barrels of oil beneath the 1.5 million-acre coastal plain of the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge in the northern eastern corner of Alaska.
Sen. John Kerry, D-Mass., argued that more oil would be saved if Congress enacted an energy policy focusing on conservation, more efficient cars and trucks and increased reliance on renewable fuels and expanded oil development in the deep-water Gulf where there are significant reserves.
"The fact is (drilling in ANWR) is going to be destructive," said Kerry.
Of course these liberal schmucks talk a good game when it comes to talking about freeing ourselves from the chains of middle eastern oil, but when it comes to taking action and actually doing something about it, well we all know where that leads too....Absofreakinlutley Not a Damn thing! Once again, liberal Democrats have lent lip service to a priority, only to drop the ball. I guess they should stick to Bill Clintons kind of lip service, at least then noone gets "Let Down"....
As if we needed a new enemy in the world, I think we need to keep a close eye on the country of Venezuala. The country's President and Dictator, Hugo Chavez has seized more then 270,000 acres of private property and redistributing it to the poor in a Cuban style move toward Communism.
I am telling you, we need to keep an eye on this clown. He controls quite a chunk of the worlds oil supply in Venezuala, as Democratic reforms are sweeping across the Middle East, Communism is once again rearing its ugly head here in the western hemisphere.
