Indiana University, '79.
Let's look at...
An interesting article on John McCain's chief economic advisor. He says McCain will raise taxes:
It isn't particularly sparing of Obama, either.
The question really boils down to WHO will they raise the...

Sam Harris (who got the ball rolling) with his End of Faith and subsequent Letter to a Christian Nation.
Noted biologist Richard Dawkins and his The God Delusion.
A damning report leveling responsibility for the 9-11 attacks.

This is Malaysian silat, I believe.
Note, please, that the instructor is walking with a cane.
Note too how during the final stunt the guy actually manages to come up to a kneeling fighting posture. Sort of...
Goodness. I thought we brought integrity back to the White House...doesn't that count for SOMETHING!!!
And...and...this! Damn those naysayer pollsters! The President doesn't pay attention to the polls. If only his...
Oh my...I find myself applauding Sean Hannity.
Never thought I'd do that.
The Catholics here might take a bit of umbrage at their web site:
