I think it demonstrates how leftists care only about themselves and their beliefs. They didn't walk out on Phil, they walked out on their students who were graduating. The students were the stars of the day, but the teachers were only interested in their political statements. Very telling and very sad.
I doubt that it will make it....there are so many obstacles....namely, obstacles, like telephone wires, trees, wind gusts, rain, snow, sleet, pedestrians, cars, other planes, This won't fly. Not gonna happen.
I'm surprised congress hasn't tried to repeal the law of gravity.

Can we just figure out what's going on and stop making it so political? There are some viable factors that need to be researched, and the oceans waters are warming faster than expected. Choral on reefs is diminishing at a rapid rate. Seriously, can we stop telling folks to buy CFL's and start figuring out what the real problem is?
Why isn't anyone talking about what ever made this man/boy imagine killing so many people? Where's all of the rage at the very games that celebrate shooting people, that kids are allowed to spend countless hours playing? World of Warcraft, Tour of Duty, etc... Why is there so little discussion about the training in killing the our kids are recieving with online games?

Pastor to Taunt IRS Over Free Speech

I don't see any free speech problem here. You can say whatever you want, but the IRS code has determined that if you want to have a tax exempt status that you need to follow their guidelines. They're guidelines that other non-church organizations have to follow as well. I'm not saying I like or agree with them. I think churches should have a lot more freedoms to say things that may be construed as politically motivated, since the lines cross. I just don't see how this will make a dent in the apathy our churches have had, looking the other way while laws are created and then suddenly getting brave when the IRS has already won. It's not like the IRS is afraid to prosecute.

The Fed Plays All Its Cards

With the fed approving 33 billion a month, that would buy about 146,000 loans at around $225,000 average home price per month. One has to ask why haven't foreign investors started buying these securities? If home values rise consistently, this could prove valuable to the fed; although if they fall it could prove to be a disaster since the value of our dollar will be bet on our homes.
Laws have already prosecuted those that illegally duped investors. I agree with John. This regulation has got to stop. Billions of dollars of investment have dried up. We have to open up the doors. Companies will fail, even under Sorbanes-Oxley. What we need is more companies succeeding. The damage from the regulation has cost well more than the Enron failure. More people have lost their jobs entirely because of Sorbaines-Oxley. Businesses can and will fail. That's the chance people take. The US used to be a breeding ground for new business, now it's just a stagnating pool of diminishing returns. Remove as much regulation as possible: Repeal Sorbanes Oxley, Repeal HIPPA, Remove State and Federal Monopolies (Gaming), etc...
