email Iraq armor
The Republicans are the ones who are strong on defense. Brad, the question is whose? Certainly not the soldiers who are actually fighting this stupid war for the Repubs.. otherwise, they might actually fund some armor for them, huh?
Extra Armor Could Have Saved Many Lives, Study Shows
Too many of these young men are dying because they'd rather give tax cuts to their rich buddies than fund the military properly.
And yet, they keep getting touted as being the ones to depend on for our safety. Bah.

Plane through Golden Gate bridge

Brush Fire could have destroyed Earth!!!
Yeah, I know that once the first local TV station went live, the others felt like they would suck if they didn't, so yesterday the locals were wall to wall, breathlessly covering a relatively small brush fire, on and off for at least 8 hours that I know of.
How big was the fire? They said 100 acres. That can be visualized as a grid of 9 football fields by 8 fields (excluding end zones). "Massive"?
Put another way, 9 brush fires that size would fit inside McAllister Park, with plenty of room remaining for almost any number of TV reporters and cans of hair spray.
It needed to be covered, sure. But— "massive"?

Brad's Ten-Foot Poll on Lobbyist Bribes --- RESULT
posted 9a-950p Thur Jan 5 2006
If a politician takes a bribe from a lobbyist to buy a vote, then later gives back the bribe, has a crime been committed?
Certainly! If a bank robber gives back the loot, he's still a robber!
Absolutely not! He gave it back! No crime! C'mon!

Perry: Add intelligent design to teaching
Theory has a place in Texas schools, he says; most rivals disagree
Intelligent design holds that life is so complex that it must have been guided by some outside intelligence. Critics have chided its lack of a testable thesis and have called it creationism — adherence to the biblical account of creation in Genesis — in disguise.
