    Iran says it's produced first nuclear fuel rod

    Is this just blustering similar to what their neighbor Iraq was doing 10 years ago? Considering what's going on in the Gulf now, we could possibly be drawn into action by another Gulf Of Tonkin type of ruse. I think we need to be alert to the language of those who might rush in. Iranian...

    Gold Rush

    Just want to say that the network that has gone from interesting, sometimes fascinating programming to insulting drivel, Discovery, may not be a redeemable entity.

    Be careful of scam in Home Depot and Lowes parking!

    I don't know if anybody knows anything about this scam, so here's a "heads up" for those of you guys who may be regular Home Depot (or, Lowes) customers. Over the last month I became a victim of a clever scam while out shopping. Simply going out to get supplies has turned out to be quite...

    Haven't seen this posted anywhere yet. The Afghanistan commander needs more troops now. Gates is sending more drones and weapons, and says he can't send any more troops until next Spring, because of the need in Iraq. The U.S. and its allies should rush more troops "as quickly as possible" to...

    Documents detail Palin's political life

    63 pages of information taken from news publications mostly. Disclaimer, the Democrats gathered it. I was surprised with the first item below, its a plus for her (to me). The item about censorship of library books, though, is a problem. At one point, Palin supported mandatory education for...
