If the planet keeps warming up like Al Gore says it is we are all going to freeze.

A first! Snow falls in Baghdad

BAGHDAD - After weathering nearly five years of war, Baghdad residents thought they'd pretty much seen it all. But Friday morning, as muezzins were calling the faithful to prayer, the people here awoke to something certifiably new.


For the first time in memory, snow fell across Baghdad.

i have recently learned the main reason for the high costs of doctor visits in this country. ready gene, it is because of Medicaid/Medicare.

an example.

before there was Medicaid/Medicare. the doctors in Dallas where charging 20 dollars a visit.

how ever the doctors in Waco where taking chickens for pay.

when Medicaid/Medicare came out they told all of the doctors that they would pay 20 per visit. so the doctor in Waco stopped taking chickens and started charging 20 per v...

now say all expenses double. 1 dollar for the product. 40 cents for labor. 20 cents for other costs. and 30 for taxes. that leaves 10 cents profit.

and for those who need help that is still only 5% profit margin. meaning that the company is now maki...

ROME (Reuters) - An Italian court has ruled that a couple could not name their son "Friday" and ordered that he instead be called Gregory after the saint whose feast day he was born on.


"I think it is ridiculous they even opened a case about it," the family's lawyer, Paola Rossi, told Reuters by telephone from the northern city of Genoa on Tuesday.

Friday/Gregory Germano was born in Genoa 15 months ago. The parents registered him as Friday in the city hall and a priest e...

the liberal left(democrats) are always crying about the rich getting richer and the poor getting poorer. to counter this they always want to raise taxes on the rich which the rich pass on to the customers(the poor).

but everyone is welcome to weight in on it. even the clueless one as long as he doesn't use this to attack bush.

the question came up in the senate and the debate about farm subsidies.

2 can we subsidize the farmer 100%. ie make them employees of the government. and keep the quality and quantity of the food. if we went with this method all American citizens woul...

One night I had a dream--
I dreamed I was walking along the beach with the Lord
and across the sky flashed scenes from my life.
For each scene I noticed two sets of footprints,
one belonged to me and the other to the Lord.
When the last scene of my life flashed before me,
I looked back at the footprints in the sand.
I noticed that many times along the path of my life,
there was only one set of footprints.
I also noticed that it happened at the very lowest
and saddest...
