A picture really does tell a thousand words. I didn't really understand why an elevated rail would work in Honolulu until I saw the photo of the Phoenix rail in last Sunday's paper. Full Story

Thank goodness we do have Fox News to be able to see what is happening in this country. But, you secretly watch it to get to the truth.
Truth?? It's rather comical how they get a politicians parties "mixed" up when they speak or are not in tune (morally) with their gospel!

Fox repeatedly labeled scandal-plagued Rep. Mark Foley a Democrat weeks before the 2006 elections.

Fox labeled Mark Sanford as a Democrat after his tryst is exposed?

Fox news labels Arlen Specter as a Democrat when his inquiries about Alberto Gonzales start to reveal more than Republicans like.

Fox News does not call what Scooter Libby is convicted of a "crime?"

Fox reporter Martha MacCallum then claimed on-air that terrorists were dancing in the streets over Democratic congressional victory, with no proof.

*A 2003 University of Maryland study found that Fox News viewers were far more likely than other networks’ viewers to be misinformed about whether Saddam Hussein was linked to 9/11 Al Qaeda terrorists -- and whether weapons of mass destruction were found in Iraq.

Yes truth, which you distorted.
The D. behind the Republicans names was a typo done in the Chyron. No one said it out loud.
No different than when a Democratic has an embarrassing moment, then CNN forgets the letter altogether and puts Rep. in front of their name. Trying to mislead into them being a Republican.
As for Arlen Spector, heck Arlon Spector doesn't even know what he is. He was Gonzales biggest supporter. Everything Arlen Spector does, is totally self serving, nothing to do with his party.
Scooter Libby was never convicted of a crime and he should never have been. He was not the person that outed VP, that was Armitage.
It was a liberal witch hunt.
How is Bush excusing someone that was never convicted and Clinton that pardoned all those people at the end of his office?
As for the WMD, look it up,there was more found, than you will ever find in the MSM.
All it takes in one homemade bomb to wipe out hundreds of people. WMD, get over yourself.
As for Martha and the election dance, I saw it, why didn't you.
And I would really listen to anything a liberal college has to say.....

Pau, FOX News never said those guys were Democrats. They said they were ACTING like Democrats.
FYI - Specter is now, once again, a Democrat.
With the financial support of Hamas, moral support from Bin Laden, Iran and Syria, it would appear they did dance in the streets.
A 2009 media study found that more people watch FOX than watch the UM Terrapins. Go figure.

Oh, this will go over big -
Ensign receives handwritten confirmation
Sen. John Ensign (R-Nev.) received a handwritten note Thursday from Joint Committee on Taxation Chief of Staff Tom Barthold confirming the penalty for failing to pay the up to $1,900 fee for not buying health insurance.
Violators could be charged with a misdemeanor and could face up to a year in jail or a $25,000 penalty, Barthold wrote on JCT letterhead. He signed it "Sincerely, Thomas A. Barthold."
The note was a follow-up to Ensign's questioning at the markup.

Alan Cummings - the Topix censor prohibits me from saying exactly what I would like to say.
So I'll just say this - your vile name-calling rants just further proves my point. Those of you on the left side just can't tolerate opposition to your already tried and failed ideology.
When you can't rationally argue the point, you degrade yourselves by name-calling and using invectives in an attempt to shut the other person up.
It doesn't work as well as it did.
Get over it and accept that there are those of us who think your un-democratic ideas and policies are bogus and are not conducive to a Republic.
If you think Beck is dangerous, don't watch his show. Simple as On and Off.
I'm sorry if you don't like to read the truth about yourself, but IT IS THE TRUTH. This country is going to hell as a result of idiot sheep who believe any sort of b.s. that is thrown at them, and they somehow believe that it it the truth. Again, if you don't like to read the truth about yourself, tough luck. Your belief in non-stop lies is what is ruining this country.

p.s. Every single thing I have written about Glenn Beck stands. And BTW, I have never wasted any time watching that gibbering simp ramming his lies down the throats of idiots like you. The ONLY time I have seen his face is on other channels.

p.p.s. Watch out for those death panels. They may vote your death any day now.

I remember reading this last evening, it's a posting you wrote in answer to an earlier one. I do not know, nor care, which countries you have dual citizenship in, but If you need a loan to get back 'home' to the other one let me know, maybe I can help. I'd be glad to see your type of political thinking as far away from these shores as possible.
Alan Cummings says: "BRILLIANT LETTER!!! I too have dual citizenship and the instant that I can scrounge enough cash together to vacate, it's Au Revoir for good. The healthcare system in this country is worse than lousy and the ONLY way it will get repaired is when the congressmen bid their lobbyist pimps goodbye. I say let morons like "what" and his brainless compatriots sink in their Republican toilet. The problem with that is that half the country will be taken down the drain with them."
I hate to tell you this, but as you'd be glad to see "my type of political thinking" as far away from these shores as possible, then you'd better not hope that happens as more than half the country would empty our very soon. And BTW, if you'd be willing to shell out the cash so I could live in a country that wasn't controlled by big business, please wire me the bucks. But make it alot of money as the former moron in chief destroyed the economy and the dollar is garbage compared to the Euro.

Didn't you hear? The Senate commission took the part about the 'death panels' out. No more worry.
If you've never watched Beck how can you be so critical of him? You say you stand by what you said, but how sure can you be it's the truth if you've never heard/seen what he has to say. Geez, some people.
To your family and friends: I wish to extend my sincere sympathy for them having to put up with your leftist drivel.
To you - you have my pity.

They threatened to leave 8 and 4 years ago, too. Have you not noticed, they're still here.
Deal. I'll send you a $$$$$ cashiers checque from a Nigerian bank, you cash it and send me $200 back for processing and you can keep the rest. How's that? Bon Voyage.

What part of "death panels" was taken out? Paragraph and section will help since I don't recall it being in there in the first place.

Huh? Are you that absolved with the GOP party?

No wonder our nation is in the shape it is when folks like yourself live in such denial.

Accountability must be strictly frowned upon in the Rove handbook of political gain...

Libby was convicted of one count of obstruction, two counts of perjury and one count of lying to the FBI about how he learned Plame’s identity and whom he told.
Yeah
