FINE LITTLE VIDEO TODAY, FAR DOWN THIS COLUMN: "THE REAL BEAUTY"

Federal court upholds Calif. e-voting ban The decision could have a nationwide impact

 

GOP would exempt certain laws from court challenges The House court-jurisdiction bill is crafted by Rep. John Hostettler, Indiana Republican. It would strip the federal courts and the Supreme Court of their ability to hear cases pertaining to the 1996 federal Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA), which says states don't have to recognize same-sex "marriages" from other states.

How could anyone not find this disgusting? First they remove certain civil rights, using the War on Terror as a justification, and then they take aim on the Constitutional system of checks and balances in our three branches of government. In some cases, they want only TWO branches. If there isn't an outcry from the common citizen about this attempt at flagrant abuse, then the politicians will know they can, after all, get by with anything.
Do these people not understand the Constitution-- or do they merely choose to ignore it?

1 Pentagon sets hearings for 595 detainees to determine whether the 595 detainees at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, meet the definition of "enemy combatants," as President Bush and the U.S. military have said.

2 Pentagon pretending to comply with Supreme Court 'That is not a hearing of any sort,' said Clive Stafford Smith. 'The supreme court ruling is very clear. They have a right to an independent tribunal. This is just a total smokescreen.

Re: Commentary Protecting Parks

Brad
As a mountain biker I think it important to clarify whether or not you intended to say "motorised off road vehicle". We don't want to be lumped in with the throttle twisting crowd. We also tend to our own trails, which other trail users such as hikers, runners and equestrians share.
thank you,
Jeff

Yeah, motorized is what I meant (unless you pedal-propelled bikers are somehow putting out noise and blue smoke, too).

Pooh pooh, Brad. I thought you were smarter than this. While I agree that our National Parks should be preserved and protected, the generalizations about ATV and snowmobile riders in you commentary were a bit much. They are akin to saying I and all other motorcyclists are like the Bandidos and Hell’s Angels just because we all ride motorcycles.
You might check out http://www.amadirectlink.com/ to see what the rest of us responsible riders (i.e. the majority) are trying to do to improve both our image and the communities we live in. Best regards,
Brian D.

Why are you so defensive? If you're protecting the parks and forests and behaving yourselves, you have nothing to worry about. You know who I'm talking about, and I'd wager that you oppose what they do, too— right?

Brad,
The other day, you mentioned Houston's online restaurant health reports. On your comment section of your ten foot pole that day, I wrote in about how a mexican restaurant I go to left the same salsa out during the lunch special, thus allowing "double-dipping" of chips from numerous unknowing customers. You read my comment on the air.
The next time I went there, the restaurant's policy had abruptly changed, and now each customer gets fresh salsa with each order. Thank you. best regards,
jsb

 

Gov. Blow-dry slams visa rules for Mexicans Drawing cheers from several hundred delegates at the League of United Latin American Citizens national convention, Perry said it was unfair for the U.S. government to grant only 72-hour visas to Mexicans while granting six-month credentials to Canadians.
