Pray for Raleigh

The poor Raleigh City Council. They have a tough job and can't seem to get their work done without help from god. Which explains why they insist on prayers to open their council meetings - most of which invoke Jesus' name.

RALEIGH - City Council members refused Tuesday to strip Jesus, Buddha, Guru Nanak or any other religious figures from the prayers that open its meetings, bracing for a legal fight with the American Civil Liberties Union. An April 10 letter from the ACLU asked that Raleigh instruct all clergy to steer clear of specific religious references at council meetings.

Has Anyone got a Ice Pack Taylor can sit On? Round 1 Shuler!

Round 1 on WLOS-TV? Advantage Shuler!!!!!! I think Mr. Taylors arse might be Sortched right now. Something that Taylor nor the reporter brought up is this. It WILL NOT cost the Billions Taylor says it will! How do I know? I spent the afternoon with fellow Veterans Derrell & Sharon Huffman in my office. Sharons brother lives less than 2 miles from the crash site. I was amazed to find out when I showed him the Washington Post Article;

Well I know the folks of the surrounding area of Somerset County DID donate so much land towards the primary area for the main memorial

News roundup:
   
1:  Because when your gas prices are high, the #1 thing that we need to do in order to lower them (aside from granting insane retirement packages to oil executives) is to exempt them from environmental regulations.  Buried in here is another reference to the little known fact that the government has been filling the Strategic Petroleum Reserve this whole time.  Oh yeah.  Remember back in, 2001ish when Bush dumped oil out of it and created artificially low gas prices?  While the price per barrel has been climbing steadily, we've been filling it back up.  Good bang for the buck there.
2:  Scotty McClellan is out of the White House, and it looks like FOX will get an inside guy - Tony Snow.  My favorite quote on the White House "staff shakeup":  "It's the equivalent of rearranging all the deck chairs on the Titanic".
3:  Which is true?  This one, or this one?
4:  195 days to prove this wrong.
5:  Mary McCarthy was fired from the CIA for allegedly talking about the secret prisons in Europe.  She has denied leaking any sort of information. 
6:  The telecommunications industry has decided that they want to start instituting QoS for different times of network traffic- for a price.  The ramifications are that it could be used to restrict access to sites that aren't able to pay to play.  Net Neutrality is a must.  Anyone who wants more in-depth information on what this is all about, feel free to ask me directly.
7:  The World Bank lying?  Covering up?  Mis-filing?  Who would have thunk.
8:  Two interestingly scary things about using nuclear weapons on Iran.  A)  What the fallout would look like.  B)  If Bush is crazy enough to actually use nuclear weapons and violate half a dozen different laws and treaties, his order goes direct to Rumsfeld to the commanding officer in the field.  The Joint Chiefs, Congress, no one else gets to say 'STOP'.
