Single? Under 30? Then the government thinks that you should abstain from sex.

The federal government’s “no sex without marriage” message isn’t just for kids anymore.

Now the government is targeting unmarried adults up to age 29 as part of its abstinence-only programs, which include millions of dollars in federal money that will be available to the states under revised federal grant guidelines for 2007.

This is apparently because nearly 1 million children were born to unwed mothers in their 20s in 2004. Of course, the only reasonable solution is for these unmarried women to stop having sex, right?

Judges buying confirmation votes?

On October 31, 2006 By

Big news popped up last night.

At least two dozen federal judges appointed by President Bush since 2001 made political contributions to key Republicans or to the president himself while under consideration for their judgeships, government records show. A four-month investigation of Bush-appointed judges by the Center for Investigative Reporting reveals that six appellate court judges and 18 district court judges contributed a total of more than $44,000 to politicians who were influential in their appointments.

This is priceless.

Over the sci-fi show’s first two seasons, many conservatives saw it as a pitch-perfect metaphor for the United States? post-9/11 battle against Osama bin Laden and his Muslamonazi horde. Galactica, which has become something of a surprise hit on the Sci Fi Channel, takes place in a post-apocalyptic universe where humanity has been decimated by a nuclear strike launched by an enemy race of robots known as the Cylons. Most of the action revolves around a noble band of 50,000 survivors who hurtle through space searching for a new home planet. Along the way, they have […]

Dear Friend,Today is Monday, the 30th of October. There are only eight days left until election day!

I am locked in a heated battle with my opponent Ted Strickland. We differ on many issues, but only I have the prescription that will lead Ohio to a brighter future.

A new, nonpartisan report finds that Ohio has the 2nd largest local and state tax burden in the nation. And while in Congress, Ted Strickland voted for tax increases and against tax cuts 83 times! Ohio cannot afford another Taft-like tax-raising politician such as Ted Strickland.

Oft repeated by global warming deniers is that it’s “too expensive” to fight global warming, and to even do something as simple as imposing emissions limits would cripple the economy (be sure to read the “about us” page on that site).

The UK believes the exact opposite.

A report by economist Sir Nicholas Stern suggests that global warming could shrink the global economy by 20%.

But taking action now would cost just 1% of global gross domestic product, the 700-page study says.

Tony Blair said the Stern Review showed the scientific evidence of global warming was “overwhelming” and […]
