Well Knarly, I guess I could have done this on Lies, this really doesn’t do much for me, I don’t see anything that would fit a discussion of the human condition. It seems to just be more of the same conspiracy theory. I haven’t read the NTSB report but my guess is the report actually shows the path closer to what the witnesses say. Even if it doesn’t, we’re talking about a few degrees, that doesn’t prove to me that Arab terrorists weren’t at the helm. And then they just make the absolute statement at that 49 minute mark that the plane didn’t hit the building when the witnesses at the 6 minute mark say it bounced on the ground before it hit the building, poor editing. Sorry but it is wishful thinking for people that don’t want to admit what we are fighting.

two woment at soccer

I was listening to two women at my granddaughter's soccer game this Saturday, they were talking about the current “crisis” in the mortgage industry, it seems one of them was a realtor. The non realtor asked ”how are people buying houses?” the other responded that people had to have good credit and had to actually make the down payment, that they aren’t letting the seller make the down payment anymore. I was amazed, this seemed ridiculous to the realtor that people would have to have good credit to buy a house, the nerve of those lenders and their regulators.

Palin and a bridge

Gravina Island Bridge

In opposing Senator Coburn’s amendment to defund the bridge, one prominent Senator told a closed-door meeting of conservatives that the plan was simply impractical. Many of the earmarks, he claimed, are counted towards a state’s equity bonus and thus are part of the state-by-state allocation formula. Defunding the bridge, he said, would direct at most $75 million to Louisiana, with the remaining $148 million returning to Alaska as money the state could use at its discretion for road projects.

a washington post article from 2005

One of the Alaska bridges, dubbed the "Bridge to Nowhere" by its critics, would connect one small town to a tiny island. It received $223 million in the highway bill that Congress passed this summer. The second bridge, named "Don Young's Way" in honor of its patron, House Transportation and Infrastructure Committee Chairman Don Young (R-Alaska), received about $230 million -- but that is just a down payment on a cost that could hit $1.5 billion.

Coburn had wanted to shift all the money to the I-10 rebuilding project, which is expected to cost $500 million to $600 million. Because of restrictions in the way highway dollars are distributed, Coburn's amendment would have redirected $75 million to the Pontchartrain bridge while unfunding the two Alaska bridges.
