First time posting but long time reader

I've watched the community for awhile.. I do hate alot of stuff that happens but its hard for me to post or comment sometimes... This hit close to home and its a subject that pisses me off everytime I hear this guys name. As most people know about the tragic happeneing in West Virgina at the Sago mine, that was only about 10miles from my home town..and I grew up as a kid knowing mining and its about all our future. When things start to calm down once they have been put to rest Fred Phelps comes by to actually protest these men..
When will this fucker die so he can rot in hell...he has recieved 500 death threats from WV communities..

Finally, looks like Head Prude Alberto Gonzales is starting his war on America's greatest enemy: stories about naughty things! Too long have we had to live in a world where people could express their more extreme sexual urges through the medium of text! Finally this harmless venting of what could otherwise be destructive behavior is being treated like the vile blight on humanity that it is!

Radiation Expert Claims High-Radiation Readings Near Pentagon After 9/11 Indicate Depleted Uranium Used; High-Ranking Army Officer Claims Missile Used at Pentagon, Not Commercial Airliner

Two high profile radiation experts concur Pentagon strike involved use of a missile. Also Geiger counter readings right after the attack shows high levels of radiation 12 miles away from Pentagon crash site.

By Greg Szymanski

A radiation expert and high-ranking Army Major, who once headed the military’s depleted uranium project, both contend the Pentagon was hit by missile, not a commercial jetliner, adding high radiation readings after the strike indicate depleted uranium also may have been used.

“I’m not an explosives or crash site expert, but I am highly knowledgeable in causes and effects related to nuclear radiation contamination. What happened at the Pentagon is highly suspicious, leading me to believe a missile with a depleted uranium warhead may have been used,” said radiation expert Leuren Moret in a telephone conversation this week from her Berkeley, CA home.

    I'd like to say "shocked"

the next President is in some classroom....

I'm doing an internet-wide poll in communities like this one, and I'd appreciate everybody's input...

Imagine that the President of the United States in the year 2040 is in college right now. Which university would he or she be attending? It doesn't matter if you're a Democrat or Republican, since they both some from the same schools anyway.

This generation of presidents and hopefuls (Bush Sr, Dubya, Kerry, Dean, etc.) all went to Yale, or Harvard. Where will the next line of presidents come from?

Just list a couple of schools that you think are capable of producing the next great world leader. No Ivy League please, since those are already obvious.

Leaders of conservative Christian organizations plan to jointly interview Republican contenders for the 2008 presidential nomination, perhaps even endorsing one of them - steps that could expand their already considerable political influence.
"We'd like to try to stay together," Tony Perkins, president of the Family Research Council, said at a breakfast with reporters Wednesday. The ad hoc group includes "free thinkers" and "strong personalities," he says, but they might unite behind a candidate who "unquestionably" best represented their views and priorities.

Gary Bauer, president of American Values, said in an interview that the sit-down sessions, likely to begin after the 2006 elections, would be "a very effective way to nail down where people are on cultural issues." He said candidates have become "very astute" at answering written questionnaires in ways that avoid making firm commitments. (Related story: Christian right bends political spectrum)
Those who plan to participate include leading figures of the Christian right: James Dobson of Focus on the Family, Paul Weyrich of the Free Congress Foundation, the Rev. Donald Wildmon of the American Family Association, Perkins and Bauer. Others also would join them.

Their groups, which represent millions of social conservatives, have taken the lead in lobbying to restrict abortion, ban same-sex marriage and confirm conservative judges. Their top priority, Perkins said, is winning confirmation of conservative Supreme Court justices.

Evangelical Christians, who overwhelmingly backed President Bush in 2004, already are an influential constituency in the Republican Party. Coordinated action could increase that influence, especially in a crowded GOP primary field.
"It would have an impact," Republican strategist Charles Black said.
But being seen as the "candidate of the Christian right" would be a "very, very mixed blessing" in the general election, said Stuart Rothenberg of the non-partisan Rothenberg Political Report- akin to Walter Mondale's stamp as the "candidate of labor" in the 1984 campaign.

"That would really pigeonhole a candidate," Rothenberg said.
Perkins spoke favorably of one likely Republican presidential contender, Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist of Tennessee, and dismissively of another, Arizona Sen. John McCain (news, bio, voting record). He criticized the bipartisan compromise that McCain and 13 other senators reached last month to avert a showdown on judicial filibusters.
Perkins said those who joined the so-called Gang of 14 risked "political repercussions."

The Family Research Council and Citizens for Community Values ran radio ads in Ohio attacking Sen. Mike DeWine (news, bio, voting record) for joining the accord. Perkins said backlash to DeWine's involvement was a factor in the defeat of his son, Pat, in the Republican primary Tuesday to choose a candidate for an open House seat in Ohio.

General Richard Myers, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, appearing on ABC's "This Week", 2005:

"Torture is not one of the methods that we're allowed to use and that we use. I mean, it's just not permitted by international law, and we don't use it…..That is not how the American military acts or should act. It's really a shame that just a handful can besmirch maybe the reputations of hundreds of thousands of our soldiers and sailors, airmen and Marines who've been over there."

Rudolf Hoess, the SS commandant and the death-dealer of Auschwitz, 1947:

"This so-called ill treatment and torture in detention centers, stories of which were spread everywhere among the people, and later by the prisoners who were freed, were not, as some assumed, inflicted methodically, but were excesses committed by individual prison guards, their deputies, and men who laid violent hands on the detainees."
