Childhood Glories

The very sound of childhood is as refined as gold and silver. It's a word that many of us would wish to retrieve and associate it with our very own. What's nice is that most of us see that form of life as the most memorable. It will travel down with us in recollection for as long as we can maintain it in memory. And there are many particular grounds why being a kid once have got a deep impact on us even when we have grown tall and old.

For one, there is the sense of pure freedom. Complete and carefree. The home where you are you and cipher else, crystal clear and still not afraid of what people might state or believe about you. Not troubled by the alteration of weather condition or season. Sunshine, rainfall or cold you are constant. Happy and contented. You travel around taking in all the wonderments of the human race with smiles. You come up up with inquiries but never allow the replies maintain you worried sick. You play games with its true spirit simply, to have got merriment and make not acquire affected by whether you win or lose. You shout and your crying are real. You make something and you give your bosom to it.

There is a kid in each of us that we turn up with. That kid that never means to harm or destroy, that never pretends or envies, that never backbites or curses, that never interrupts a dear one's heart, that never scores or Judges but one that is pure, guiltless and capable of love, one that is true and genuine, one that lives only to distribute goodness around.

But we age and slowly go forth behind these aureate hints of rich childhood values. We abandon them for a human race of complexities. We actually travel looking for the things that would do us happy lone to recognize we have got left them behind where childhood glorifications reigned on high and that which actually belonged once to us. We are no more than capable of being a kid again because we have got traded it for a life of selfish additions and of mounting concerns and troubles.

Although that kid in us is still somewhere inside of us, speaking words of wisdom when we leap into foolish conclusions. We are too deaf to hear its faint voice because our ears are already full with voices of vernal lecherousness and the apparent mature advices. It is lost and forgotten; forsaken by our ain stupid instincts. But when the hope deceases down and you are lying low, tired of the worldly chase, there is this voice of comfortableness that gives you an self-assurance of beginning a new. For in the most cryptic way, a kid is a wise one. When you eschew all your dual mental images and pretenses, somehow when you turn ill of all the ageless pandemonium circling around you and you do up one's mind to go true to yourself again- just purely you and cipher else then perhaps you are giving another opportunity to allow the appeals of childhood glorifications visit you.

It's truly not possible to fathom the procedure of life that takes you from shore to shore, from artlessness to impurity, from here to there and back from there to the past but we all cognize what joyousness is. We cognize what would make us happy even though we might not always acquire there. In the long procedure of living, which ironically sometimes is too short, there is a phase that remains alive- the phase where you are actually flying on perfect wings, when cipher states you 'you're ugly or cruel' because a kid is never any of those. By any measurement or degree, children are one of God's top gifts. From appropriately being called a 'bundle of joy' to cunning sweet small ones, they are grounds for many happy occasions.

I can conceive of the human race no less, where streets are deserted and silenced by non-existent of children, where their shouts are no more than than heard or their laughter buried in neverland, where a alone one's bosom could otherwise be lightened simply by an guiltless expression in the face, where parents no longer name out their name calling for repasts inside, where their giggles no more ring out in tuneful music, where their games are no longer played on the Fields that expression pretty with them.It's no inquire how magically children touching our lives.

And yet with another twenty-four hours that deservingly belongs to them, it gives me homesick feelings of that charming form that swiftly passed me by. Most of us don't probably give a idea but what we had during that peculiar phase of life is so special. So much so, we ought to convey back those childhood glorifications alive again. Those are memories of gold. Maybe we should travel back in clip for old times' interest and touching the bosom of innocence. We would happen hoarded wealths to last us for a lifetime.

As for the children we have got today, I think it's their minute to allow the hair down and sing, dance or whatever they may,we cognize everything to make with them is pure bliss, pure goodness, pure innocence,there's nothing to fear as long as they acquire what children deserve.

Kentucky - where Democrats hope more than the grass is blue

Kentucky is not usually thought of as a battlefield state in American politics. But these are not usual times, so what would ordinarily be a routine gubernatorial election in the state next hebdomad have grown into an intense partisan showdown, with deductions for both the presidential and congressional elections next year.

With the November 6 election just a hebdomad away, the incumbent Republican governor, Ernie Fletcher, is trailing Democratic rival Steve Beshear by a double-digit margin in most polls.

But there's another award Bluegrass State Democrats seek that is arguably bigger, at least emotionally, than the governor's sign of the zodiac - they trust a Beshear win can put the basis for the licking in 2008 of four-term Republican senator Mitch McConnell, the leader of the Senate political party and a adult male Democrats have got repeatedly accused of using obstructor tactics on Iraq, wellness attention and other issues.

"We are not going only to win and win big. We are going to put the phase for 2008 when we are going to turn Bluegrass State blue," declares Bluegrass State state financial officer Jonathan Miller, who also functions as president of the state's Democratic party. "And the greatest ground is that both on the state degree and the national level, the Republicans had their opportunity to take and they blew it."

Mr Fletcher, a physician and former three-term congresswoman serving his first term as governor, was indicted in May 2006 by a state expansive jury on misdemeanour complaints related to his administration's hiring practices. The complaints were eventually dropped as portion of a colony with the state lawyer full general but the harm was done. In September, Mister John John Fletcher could only earn a 38% blessing evaluation from Bluegrass State voters.

Democrats have got pinned their hopes on Mister Beshear, a former lieutenant governor and lawyer full general of Kentucky, who have hammered away at the corruptness theme.

The state is heavily Democratic in footing of voter-registration, and the last seven governors before Fletcher were all Democrats. But the enrollment Numbers contradict a societal conservativism that brands it tilt strongly Republican on national issues.

Kentucky have voted Republican in five of the last seven presidential elections, with Bill Bill Clinton carrying the state both modern times he ran. Both senators are conservative Republicans as well, so Republican secret agents look to have got recent history on their side in dismissing Democratic claims about a surge.

"That sort of talking is certainly overblown," said Jason Keller, communication theory manager for the John Fletcher campaign. "What you will see here in the governor's race is that Bluegrass State is a conservative state. Kentuckians don't desire to see their taxations raised; they don't desire to see a distended inefficient government, and, by and large, they are pro-life. Those are the issues that are going to make up one's mind this at the end of the day."

Still, Mister John Fletcher trails badly in most studies and is expected to lose. If that happens, then Democrats will begin eyeing Mister McConnell, who is an inviting mark for respective reasons. His support for the administration's scheme in Republic Of Republic Of Iraq have made him less popular at home, particularly since he have been instrumental in turning back the many Democratic attempts to dispute the president on Iraq. On one recent survey, 55% of Kentuckians disagreed with Mister McConnell on the war.

And after having their Senate leader, Uncle Tom Daschle, toppled in the elections of 2004, Democrats would wish the opportunity to go back the favour.

"The Democrat is political party is leaner and meaner," states Mister Gunterman, who runs a Website called . "With the tide going against [McConnell] on Republic Of Iraq and with the conservative motion kind of imploding, he was vulnerable and you could see that."

The Democratic Senatorial political campaign commission have already run advertisements against Mister McConnell. Anti-war and clean-government communals have got joined in the fray. The Bluegrass State subdivision of the AFL-CIO (American Federation of Labour-Congress of Industrial Organisations) have launched a political campaign with the tagline "It's Our Time".

But there is, as of the moment, one catch: there is no Democratic rival to Mister McConnell. Mister Miller, the political party chair, states they are waiting until after the governor's election.

"We'll have got a great campaigner and that campaigner will be adequately funded," he said. Mister Glenn Miller was regarded as possible rival but have taken himself out of the race, confidently predicting that he will be helping a newly elected Democratic governor set up a new administration.

Much of the guess about other potentiality rivals centres on Ben Chandler, a congresswoman and boy of a former governor, who himself lost the governor's race to Mister John Fletcher four old age ago. The Bluegrass State lawyer general, Greg Stumbo, is raising money in readying for a challenge. The state auditor, Crit Luallen, who is also up for re-election next week, and Louisville lawyer and former Devil Dog Saint Andrew Horne are also in the mix.

Republicans take a firm stand that the Democratic optimism is misplaced. "I don't cognize why they are so confident when they can't even happen an opposition for him," states Rebekah Fisher, of the National Republican Senatorial committee, the political campaign arm of the Senate Republicans.

A recent poll, conducted for a local telecasting station, showed Mister McConnell with less that 50% support, but he beat out all of his challengers by at least five points in the same poll. Mister Raymond Chandler may show the toughest challenge: he trailed McConnell 46% to 41% inch the poll.

"I'm not certain where they are getting their information that he's vulnerable," said Mister Fisher.

In truth, it is less about information and more than about an overall sense that Saint George Bush's handling of Republic Of Iraq is creating chances for Democrats where they once did not exist.

Nigeria - India's Gateway To The African Goldmine

Chasing People'S Republic Of China in resource-rich Africa, Prime Curate Manmohan Singh who flew to Federal Republic Of Nigeria on Lord'S Day in the first state visit there by an Indian premier curate in 45 years.

Calling Republic Of Republic Of India 'a stopping point spouse in Africa's resurgence', Dr Singh Monday unveiled a new vision of strategical partnership between India and Federal Republic Of Nigeria based on energy demands ,security and common positions on planetary issues in his historical computer address to the joint session of the Nigerian parliament.

"We are approaching the fiftieth twelvemonth of the constitution of our diplomatic relations. There can be no better juncture than to establish a strategical partnership between Republic Of India and Nigeria. It will be anchored in the past and expression to the future. Republic Of India is the biggest democracy in the world. Federal Republic Of Nigeria is the biggest democracy in Africa. We are multi-religious, multi-ethnic and multi-lingual societies. Our societies encompass modernness while preserving their traditions. There is a natural logic in neckties between the two countries." said the Indian Prime Curate in his address

Dr Singh made the Indian Interest on Federal Republic Of Nigeria very clear and blunt when he said "It is a partnership for energy security. Nigeria's rich natural resources supply the alkali for our mutually good cooperation for energy security. Republic Of Republic Of India and Federal Republic Of Nigeria should also advance research and development in efficiency of energy production, clean engineerings and renewable beginnings of energy."

After such as a long time interval a visit of the Highest Very Important Person from India to that state presumes all the more than importance looking into the planetary position of the changing contour lines of International political relation and Africa's emerging function in it. Four understandings will be signed during the visit. India's Foreign Service Institute and the Nigerian Foreign Service Academy will subscribe a memoranda of apprehension (MoU). The Indian Council for World Personal Business and the Nigerian Institute for World Personal Business will subscribe another MoU. A communications protocol on foreign business office audiences and another on defence cooperation too will be signed.

The two states will finalize an all-embracing docket for near energy and joint economical partnership based on new oil geographic expedition blocks and substructure developments as well as a clear cut scheme for diversifying dealings between them. The focusing will be on improving connectivity and expanding isobilateral trade, which is currently estimated to be around $8 billion.

In the approaching six months, understandings on dual revenue enhancement turning away understanding and isobilateral investing and protection would be signed .Another treaty on isobilateral air service understanding are also likely to be finalized by April 2008. An extradition pact and an understanding on scientific discipline and engineering would be ready by then.

In a planetary linguistic context Dr Singh made the ends for both the states very clear when he said, "a partnership to maneuver the planetary economical and political docket towards addressing the legitimate concerns of developing countries." Stressing the importance of friendly neckties between Republic Of Republic Of India and Africa dating back to a shared history of historical battle based on Gandhian ways against colonialism and apartheid and with an optimistic image of the continent's resurgent growing with India playing a cardinal function in it the Prime Curate sounded very positive.

'We visualize an Africa that is self-reliant, economically vivacious and at peace with itself and the world. It is this promise that our partnership with Africa seeks to fulfill. Republic Of India will offer its fullest cooperation to harness the great potentiality of the African people. We seek to go close spouses in Africa's resurgence,' declared Dr Singh

India's route map towards Africa was made very clear during this visit which can be understood from the focusing of the Prime Minister's statement. With development being a cardinal factor in it. "We will share our experiences with African states on holistic attacks to development. We will work closely with the African Union in promoting the accomplishment of internationally agreed developmental goals."

With Republic Of India hosting the adjacent India-Africa acme in Old Delhi adjacent twelvemonth land for a common fate was made clear in this visit. "We necessitate to set up a sustained duologue with Africa to place joint attacks on international issues such as as combating terrorism, atomic disarmament, proliferation of weaponry of mass destruction, trafficking of little arms and narcotics. Republic Of India will work with Africa in the countries of peacekeeping and peace-building. I believe that Republic Of India and Africa have got a shared fate and a common future. Ours is a human relationship that must now be brought to full bloom. Let us work together to do this happen" declared Dr Singh.

With a new focusing on India's attack towards Africa one can trust for a new and very of import beginning in the approaching time. With immense chances for Republic Of India in a development Africa potentialities are huge. The demand of the hr is a long sustained and focused attack and the Indian Prime Curate have rightly done that. This demands to be sustained in the long run. With respective western countries, United States Soviet Union and People'S Republic Of China focusing deeply on Africa Republic Of Republic Of India cannot afford to free out in this international game of geo political relation based on economical platform .Nigeria could be a launching pad of paper for India in her long term involvement towards Africa. In fact the cardinal to the gold mine called Africa lies in Nigeria's manus and it depends whether Republic Of India can throw that cardinal on the long run.

Political Research - Praying for Rain on Election Day

Running for business office at any degree necessitates a countless of skills. Resourcing, outsourcing, researching, monetary fund raising, run-blocking, slug dodging, narrative spinning...and, er, maintaining brevity of message. Over the past twenty old age as a political and mass media consultant, there is one desirable accomplishment I have got yet to obtain. I can't command the weather.

Don't worry, my desire is not to out-maneuver the Justice League of United States and tumble human race authorities with some expansive secret plan worthy of the comics.

Research and polling are, of course, portion of any comprehensive attack to election twenty-four hours success. If you have got a little budget, make random polls of 50 people in your district. If you have got the funds, hire a professional house to map the landscape.

We all cognize that this research

1) ascertains your chance of success and

2) secret plans the way to success.

It is of import to recognize that it also can demo you under what statuses success is most likely. How will you experience if it is in your best involvement for most of the electorate to remain home?

Even when you perfectly research and analyze, sometimes a lucky event is needed. Bite the slug and acknowledge you are in it to win; pray for rainfall and allow them remain home.

Even when you have got got done all the research and have all the information at your disposal, you lose the critical connection. Sucking it up and larn a difficult lesson, for not even rainfall may salvage you. I have got a good illustration of this situation.

As mass media adviser for the 2006 Lone-Star State U.S. Senatorial candidate, I did extended research. No premises were made. The campaigner was Barbara Ann Radnofsky – a last name too hard for traditional acknowledgment techniques, like repetition. The political campaign planned an full mass media attack around the name "Barbara Ann." How much more than Texan can you acquire than "Barbara Ann?" Nightlong the pace mark and bumper spine designing changed. Print mass media and streamers at events displayed "Barbara Ann." Most made the premise that the label "Barbara Ann" was the best choice. I did not.

Experienced political advisers are cautious: too many years, too many assumptions, too many burns. In polling, I included inquiries about "Barbara Ann." The most basic inquiry was, "Do you like the name 'Barbara Ann?'" Twenty-one percentage did not. This per centum drop into two age and ethnical groups. The old pace marks were still sitting in storage. We could have got easily distributed them on a geo-demographic basis. We could have got easily customized electronic mails to these groups.

But it was too late. So, make your research. Never waver to run a arrested development of one statistic against another. Always opinion poll on inquiries that challenge your core premises and strategy.

Be ready to pray for rain.

Union endorses Obama; Bayh endorses Clinton

From Mark Preston CNN Political Editor

Washington (CNN) -- Two of the prima campaigners for the Democratic presidential nomination each proclaimed a labor union blurb Monday and one received the championship of a senior member of Congress.

Presidential campaigner Sen. Barack Obama talks after being endorsed by a New House Of York rectification officers' union

Sen. Edmund Hillary Clinton, D-New York, announced the championship of the International Union of Bricklayers and Allied Craftworkers, an organisation that touts a rank of 100,000 "skilled masonry-trowel trades craftworkers."

Later in the day, Sen. Evan Bayh, D-Indiana, endorsed Bill Bill Clinton for president.

"I believe that the adjacent president of the United States must be experienced and seasoned, must be smart and must be tough," said Bayh, who once considered a presidential run. "And I believe that Edmund Hillary Bill Bill Clinton is all of these things and more."

unveiled her labor labor labor union blurb soon after news leaked that Sen. Barack , D-Illinois, would head to Clinton's place sod to uncover his ain union endorsement.

The Correction Officers' Beneficent Association, a New House Of York City union that stands for 9,000 jailhouse workers, announced they are backing him at a late morning time news conference. Don't Miss

Also Monday, veteran soldier Ioway Democratic secret agent Gordon Hans Fischer announced he is throwing his support behind Obama's White Person House command -- a cardinal blurb for the senator in the early caucus state that topographic points a insurance premium on political campaign organization.

"Like all Democrats I am despairing to win the White Person House, and I am absolutely convinced Sen. Obama is the campaigner who have the best opportunity against any Republican in the field," Fischer, the state's former Democratic political party chairman, said in a conference phone call with reporters.

While blurbs are often seen as a mark of a candidate's strength within the political class, the support of labor unions is particularly of import because these organisations often supply a motivated grouping of land military personnel to work on behalf of the candidate.

Illegal Immigration - The Solution

From a address given by Rebel Oops the principal fictional character in a novel by the same name at the greatest drive-in film left in the Country at the Arizona/Mexican border.

I have got the solution to our in-migration job with United Mexican States my friends. It came to me in a dream. I don't intend to be blasphemous, but I believe I was inspired by you cognize who on this one.

What we have got to make is only allow the wealthiest Mexican's into the Country, not the poorest, as legal citizens, not illegal immigrants. We should bear down a caput taxation of $10,000 per grownup and $40,000 per kid assuming our societal social welfare costs of free schooling and medical disbursals are going to be higher for those that unrecorded longer. That would convey in $100,000 per norm household of four. Those that are born here are place free.

Assuming that lone 1 million affluent Mexicans were willing and able to take advantage of this each twelvemonth (there are more than of them than you think) that would give us an estimated 1 billion a twelvemonth and salvage us millions more of societal societal social welfare costs on the twelve to twenty million illegal immigrant Mexicans we would no longer let into this Country.

At the same clip as we make this we could put up a social welfare recognition with the twelve million illegal Mexican immigrants who remain place or travel place of $1000 a year. They would have got to pay their ain transportation system costs back to United Mexican States or walk across the border, but we would supply an eternal supply of gym shoes if necessary free of charge. That would be us only 120.000,000 dollars poetries the current cost of millions in societal social welfare expenses, and we could utilize portion of the 1 billion dollars we accumulate from the affluent Mexican immigrants to pay for it. I would also attain an understanding with the Mexican authorities to utilize another $250,000,000 of our yearly immigrant caput taxation gross to fund a free entrepreneurial, construct your ain concern type, of free trade zone as far away from our boundary line with United Mexican States as you can get. It is just possible that a figure of these newly subsidised mediocre Mexicans will go affluent themselves in this taxation free zone, and desire to immigrate legally to the United States, paying the caput taxation for themselves and their family, and thus dynamically increasing our return from the immigrant caput tax. This is a win, win situation.

Am Iodine superb or what? I always knew I was a genius. Bash you cognize how much mediocre Mexicans can purchase in their ain state with $1000 a year? They will no longer desire to come up here as long as we maintain paying them, and they acquire that annual stipend whether they work or not. Pretty soon Mexican concerns would have got to begin paying their workers more to acquire them to travel to work. Why should they work for about a dollar a twenty-four hours when they can assure not to immigrate and do close to three modern times that amount for doing nothing? That's capitalism at work. That's The Dialectic Rationalization of Materialism word form of capitalist economy other Countries only daydream of. I told you it pays to be greedy.

As to the inexpensive labour crisis this mightiness cause, I have got the solution to that too. Rich Person you people ever heard of Robots? Where is the engineering that made this state great? Bash you intend to state me we can't construct and programme a Automaton smart adequate to pick maize or strawberries? Well strawberries might be a job unless you were looking for strawberry puree. Nothing is perfect is it? But let's not bury the sense of invention that made this Country great. If we tin do Robots that tin execute medical operations, we ought to be able to bring forth 1s that can choice strawberries without squashing them.

If the Republican and Democratic Parties are really worried about losing all those ballots when billions of illegal immigrants don't go citizens, we could give the Robots a limited word form of technological citizenship and the right to vote, but not the right to unionize, or civil rights, or the rights to free schooling or medical care, and we have got to make certain they are not preprogrammed as to who to vote for by the manufacturer. They would have got to be enticed into ballot by who ever offered them the best trade on substitution parts and given some cognitive ability to understand a basic wage for vote type deal. Don't be scared we are not really going to learn them how to believe independently. We are going to restrict their thought ability to that of your norm ape or chimpanzee. You don't see many of them voting, or do you?

And while we are at it, let's make damn certain that our Robots are all American, stamped made in America, and talk English. That should make the fast one nicely. I am really getting excited about this, how about you?

This is really easy for a guru like me who have the 'word'. I am definitely getting the hang of modern twenty-four hours political job solving. I believe when I am through with this project; I am going to turn my attending to Global Warming. Get ready world, things are going to acquire so hot around here that you might believe you are in Acapulco De Juarez or Cancun, United Mexican States in the center of the summer. Isn't life wonderful? The hereafter is ours for the taking.

Ron Paul - Personal Beliefs vs Political Beliefs

There looks to be some confusion about what Bokkos Paul's purposes might be in running for President. He certainly desires to go president, but believe about the grounds why:

  • Reduce the size of the Federal Soldier Soldier government.
  • Restore American constitutional values.
  • Protect personal liberty.
  • Create existent value in the American economical system.
  • Make the Federal authorities work for the people not the corporations.
  • Create duty and answerability in government

He have the vision to make this and I believe every American would wish to see all of this come up true. I also believe that there is a tide of support beginning to swell for him. People are fed up with large authorities providing whatever the large corps need. And making themselves rich in the process. (See sum irresponsibleness in loaning by both borrowers and lenders, etc.)

We are also becoming Federal Soldier up with the use of our pecuniary system for the good of the Banks and growing taxation measures to feed an ever money hungry Federal disbursement machine that looks to have got a bent for cachexia as much as possible. Imperialism looks to be on the rise, especially in this disposal and Americans turn tired of policing the human race at their cost in both lives and dollars.

We desire to be free to make up one's mind for ourselves what we believe is right. That is what our Democracy is all about. Free states that are supported by the Federal Soldier government; not ruled by it.

And yes, Dr. Alice Paul is against abortion, a god-fearing Christian and many other things that we all (including me) make not hold with all of the time. But his passionateness for personal freedom and emancipation from Federal Soldier regulation that we all unrecorded under give us protection from a President that would seek to coerce anything like this upon us. The society we dwell in now makes not protect us from this at all; it facilitates this sort of oppressive rule.

Ron Alice Paul can get the end of all that we would wish to see go. Just give him a chance; listen to what he states and believe that United States is ready for this. We all privation to be free and we all tin be!. We just necessitate to begin somewhere and Bokkos Alice Paul have helped us happen that starting line.

Obama jabs Hillary Clinton on health care in San Francisco


(09-07) 17:11 PDT San Francisco --
Democratic presidential campaigner Sen. Barack Obama took a swipe Friday at main challenger Sen. Edmund Hillary Rodham Bill Clinton on one of her signature issues - wellness attention - saying in San Francisco that many powerbrokers in the nation's working capital have got failed to lift above political relation to supply better, less dearly-won wellness attention for Americans.

"There are those who tout their experience workings in the system in American Capital ... the job is, the system in American Capital isn't working for us," Obama said. "We've been talking about the wellness attention crisis in this state for decennaries and yet through Republican and Democratic administrations, we failed to act."

Clinton, as first lady, led the unsuccessful attempts to reform the wellness attention system during the first two old age of the disposal of her husband, President Bill Clinton. She have pledged as the prima Democratic campaigner for president to seek again to reform the system, which many experts state is too dearly-won and doesn't supply quality attention to adequate Americans.

Obama, speaking Friday before an enthusiastic grouping of about 1,500 at an event billed as "Women for Obama," project himself as a title-holder of women's rights and for issues critical to Democratic electors such as as wellness care, instruction and the environment.

"Too many people in American Capital see political relation as a game - and that is why I believe this election cannot just be about who plays the game better," said Obama, 46, a first-term Illinois senator. "It have to be about who's putting an end to the game plan."

Obama was greeted with enthusiastic cheers as he emerged in lawsuit and necktie at the Bill Billy Graham Civic Auditorium, shaking the custody of tons of his protagonists on phase before a crowd of mostly women.

"I'm lucky adequate to dwell ... with three 'Women for Obama' in my house," he joked, referring to his married woman and two daughters. "I don't always acquire this reception."

Supporters paid $2,300 to go to an sole response and $250 to sit down in the cavernous hallway for a box luncheon of water, joint beef cattle sandwich, a elf and an apple - but 100s of seating in the upper balcony remained unfilled even though the senator's campaign, in the years before the event, offered a lowered $25 ticket price.

Though Obama stuck primarily to his tree stump speech, he won cheers and respective standing standing ovations by acknowledging the importance of women electors and pounding issues that are on the top of many of their minds.

"Women have got always made the difference in every election," he told the crowd, "and this year, your voice, your hope will be the crucial factors in forging a new hereafter for America."

Though he didn't advert Bill Clinton by name, his perennial mentions to himself as campaigner offering alteration and a position from outside the American Capital Beltway were an unmistakable comparing to the New House Of York senator, who canvasses show is the Democratic front-runner for the 2008 nomination in a crowded field.

"There are easier picks that you can do in this election, people who will follow the well worn grooves, " he said, "people who will present ... pretty much more than of the same."

Obama's address was portion of a three-day visit to California, including an visual aspect Thursday nighttime at a Pacific Ocean High fundraiser.

He is scheduled to look today at a twelve noon mass meeting at the City College of Santa Barbara and later will go to an sole fundraiser at the Montecito estate of talking show host and mass media baron Oprah Winfrey - an event expected to raise as much as $3.5 million.

With five calendar months until the Feb. Five Golden State presidential primary, Obama is trying to interest a claim for Democratic women electors - a constituency aggressively courted by the political campaign of Clinton, who have amassed a 30-point lead in state polls.

But Obama's state co-chairs, San Francisco District Lawyer Kamala Townsend Harris and Los Angeles Accountant Laura Chick, urged the largely female audience to fall in his movement.

"We have got got in Barack Obama person who believes every twenty-four hours - as he looks at his girls and have he looks as his married woman ... an individual who will dedicate himself every twenty-four hours to the issues that impact women," Townsend Harris said.

Author Ayelet Waldman of Berkeley, who graduated in the same Harvard University University law social class as Obama, endorses his tally for president over Clinton, although "I've been a women's rightist my whole life, and I was raised on Betty Freidan."

She said she would wish to see the Democratic campaigners on "an Obama-Clinton ticket."

Michael Semler, a professor of political relation at CSU-Sacramento said Obama have capitalized on his position as a fresh human face in the Democratic presidential race - but now confronts a turning point.

"It's a long political campaign season, some of the exhilaration have worn off and he have to renew some of the excitement," Semler said. "I'm waiting for him to be something different than a great human face and story."

The chief challenge, Semler said, is that "Hillary is clearly the front-runner ... and she have the most formidable squad imaginable, starting with her husband. They have got been through national warfares before and cognize the landscape."

"Everyone else is in the catch-up manner - including Obama. He can't wait for Edmund Hillary to trip," Semler said. "He have to bring forth some love ... and I don't cognize where he's going to acquire it."

Barack Obama Strategy In Florida: Win Cuban-American Votes

Washington D.C. 9/5/2007 12:46 americium Greenwich Mean Time (FINDITT)

Many analysts believe that the declaration of Senator Barack Obama that he will allow unrestricted remittals and visits of Cuban-American to Republic Of Cuba will hike his opportunities of getting bulk ballots in Florida. According to many analysts, Sunshine State had always been the battlefield when it come ups to the presidential election. Note that former-president Ronald Reagan’s heavy accent on the Cuban-American votes in the 1980s election made him win the elections. Even former-President Bill Bill Clinton himself wowed the Cuban-American ballots during his term and was rewarded with a heavy turn-out of votes that helped him win the presidential election.

According to the , Edmund Hillary Bill Clinton have twice the support as Obama. This is a strategical move by Obama to do this early primary competitive.

Although Obama’s declaration on Republic Of Cuba may win him ballots in Florida, many political perceivers believe that such as statements may do him to loss votes in other countries of the country. According to observers, the manner Senator Obama manages foreign policy is irregular that many people would not trust him when it come ups to handling sensitive issues. Former Bay State governor Hand Romney, a Republican presidential candidate, did not really soften words when he criticized Senator Obama on the issue of Cuba. According to Romney, Senator Obama is showing his weak side. Romney believes that Senator Obama cannot even support the American values and face the enemies of the nation.

The sentiment of Romney is echoed by bulk of the members of the Democratic Party. In a recent opinion poll conducted by CNN, a big bulk of the members of the Democratic Party believes Senator Edmund Hillary Bill Clinton have more than experience and political volition to manage the states foreign policies.

Lexington stop last on Obama itinerary

LEXINGTON - Sen. Barack Obama concluded a nearly two-week cross-country route trip Lord'S Day nighttime and said he was inspired by the crowds that followed his presidential campaign, including 2,200 in his concluding stop: Kentucky.

"I've been on the road 12 days," Obama said during the mass meeting at Lexington's convention center. "I've been running out of clean laundry. I won't give you the details."

The attendees, most of whom stood during the hourlong rally, paid at least $25 for the right to see and hear the Prairie State senator, who canvasses show is running 2nd behind New House Of York Sen. Edmund Hillary Bill Bill Clinton for the Democratic nomination.

He didn't name Clinton or any of his Democratic opponents, but did do mention to a recent clang he had with some of his foes over his statements acknowledging he would speak with knave nations.

"I'm not afraid to negociate with anybody because I cognize what United States stand ups for," he said. "We don't have got got to be chesty to be strong."

Obama, who was coming from New Orleans where he spoke about recovery from Hurricane Katrina, also appeared at a similar mass meeting earlier this twelvemonth in Louisville, where he was greeted by 3,000 people.

The senator said he hoped this would be the twelvemonth Bluegrass State would stop a run of vote for Republican presidential nominees.

"You've got a Bluegrass state, how are you going to have a reddish state voting?" he said. "It just doesn't work."

Obama's visit to Lexington came just a few hours after the metropolis memorialized the one-year anniversary of Comair flight 5191, which killed 49 people. Obama said his supplications were with the victims.

"I just desire to add my voice to seek to comprehend what A hard calamity that must be," he said.

The remainder of his fiery tree stump address was traditional Obama - no short letters or podium, just wandering the phase with a mike and delivering popular hand clapping lines to the Democratic faithful.

He talked about bringing military personnel place from Iraq, support preschool programs, ceasing dependance on dodo combustibles for oil, providing wellness attention for everyone who necessitates it and ending taxation cuts that benefit affluent Americans.

When he begins talking about those things in Washington, Obama says, people often name him a "hope peddler" or "hope monger."

"I stand up guilty as charged," he said.

Republican National Committee spokeswoman Amber Wilkerson said Obama's Bluegrass State visual aspect would do no difference next fall.

"The more than than clip Barack Obama passes in Bluegrass State touting his broad proposals to raise taxations for working households and choke off support for our troops, the more likely electors in this state will re-elect a Republican president in 2008," Wilkerson said.

Is HIV a Huge Hoax?

In order to work out the HIV/AIDS pandemic that have faced world in the last 30 years, we necessitate to look at the whole topic anew. We necessitate to inquire a inquiry that in the heads of the bulk is so distressing that it is not deserving thought about. My inquiry is quite simple. Are HIV/AIDS A hoax? Are we facing the greatest screen up in modern history? Are human immunodeficiency virus the cause of acquired immune deficiency syndrome or are we embarking on a wild goose chase? Are some collusive darkness military units at work?

In order to give replies to these, allow us dwell on a fictitious-or maybe not so fabricated scenario. Imagine a man of science in a laboratory somewhere detects that a works from the Amazon can be used as juice to get rid of all marks of acquired immune deficiency syndrome in 30 days. (By the manner such as a works makes exist). Imagine also that he used this herbaceous plant on 1000 patients and all marks of acquired immune deficiency syndrome cleared in 30 days. At long last a remedy for acquired immune deficiency syndrome is finally found! We have got establish a remedy for acquired immune deficiency syndrome that is inexpensive, simple, and all natural with no side personal effects and can easily be establish in a wellness nutrient stores. Anyone with the fearfulness of catching human immunodeficiency virus would simply travel to the local wellness nutrient shop and drink this juice without the demand for doctor's prescription. What make you believe would happen? International awards for this man of science as well the Alfred Nobel Prize for services to humanity. The whole medical community would be thankful to this adult male and the human race would be a better place.

Unfortunately, the human race we dwell in makes not work that way. In fact, there is likeliness that he will be arrested and looked up for practicing medical specialty without license. The information regarding the works will be suppressed. Otherwise if the information got out, the information could be terrible to all concerned. Almost immediately, millions of dollars would be wiped out of the human race stock marketplaces with 100s of one thousands of occupations lost, All the HIV/AIDS organisations would be closed down, millions of dollars would be lost to parasite organisations such as as acquired immune deficiency syndrome charities, research organizations, authorities bodies, trusts, the mass media aligned to HIV/AIDS campaign, The acquired immune deficiency syndrome societies, and not to speak of the pharmaceutical companies involved in merchandising human immunodeficiency virus drugs that makes not heal the disease! The United States alone have spent almost $200 billion on the warfare to struggle against AIDS!

You see the HIV/AIDS is an extremely moneymaking hard cash generating income for all concerned. Money is a more than powerful motive than truth. As long as the general populace is griped with the fearfulness about this disease the more than than moneymaking it goes and the more we are told that a 'cure is on its way' the same message have been repeated since 1984.

If economical involvement is not the ground for not finding a remedy for AIDS, then what is? Surely with all the medical brains, clip and millions of dollars spent, one thousands of lives lost we should come up near to a solution. If man, who was able to direct adult male to the moon, develops ace sonic jets, split the atom, could he not happen a agency to kill this human immunodeficiency virus virus we a told causes AIDS?

The human immunodeficiency virus virus looks to be imbued with occult powers. This we are told is a retrovirus once infection have occurred in world would unquestionably ensue in death-100%. We are also told that this virus that is a little as 0.0001mm can do up to 30 different diseases and devastate the full immune system of its victims. Unlike other retroviruses which are fast that causes diseases three hebdomads after infection, human immunodeficiency virus is slow tin stay in the organic structure for up twelve old age before diseases may develop. This agency that the human immunodeficiency virus possesses charming abilities to reactivate, mutate, transmigrate and hibernate for that length of time. Thus is features are different from other similar viruses.

I surmise that this slow virus hypothesis used by human immunodeficiency virus advocates to purchase clip when the slow playing human immunodeficiency virus was not immediately causing any disease.

Also, when a individual diagnostic diagnostic tests positive to the human immunodeficiency virus tests it is not that the virus was isolated and identified in the blood. It is because the diagnostic tests place high grade of anti organic structures present. These antibodies emerge when the organic structure is being attacked by microbes, once the anti organic structures are released, according to men of science the bugs are either killed or immobilized and rendered harmless. That is why we retrieve from a cold when we are infected. Thus disease cannot take topographic point after the antibodies is released which looks to be the topographic point with HIV/AIDS. Why is this basic fact of scientific discipline turned upside down with HIV? By the manner we have got one thousands of retroviruses within our organic structure system that causes us no harm!

There is an statement by leading retro virologist that Retro viruses don't kill T-cells to causes disease. Even if they make they cannot green goods sufficiency to kill all the T-cells enough to do disease. T-cells can reproduce at 5% A day. Thus human immunodeficiency virus can only infect 1 cell in 1000 or 1 cell in 100,000, nowhere to convey down the full immune system enough to do AIDS. It is like saying a homemaker will decease of a fatal disease while slightly cutting her finger slicing vegetables!

Leaving the scientific disciplines aside, why it that acquired immune deficiency syndrome is have not distribute to the general population and is still confined in the Occident to its original hazard grouping for over 12 years. These groupings are homoes and four drug users. Unlike other contagious sexual diseases, it is not distribute amongst work force and women alike. As a consequence whatever is causing acquired immune deficiency syndrome in the developed human race is not contagious and is locked in to the original hazard groups. In the United States acquired immune deficiency syndrome is still rare among women who are not drug users. In Africa however, it is a different narrative and acquired immune deficiency syndrome is distribute to both work force and women equally and children! Why is this so? Why the inconsistency.

There so many holes and incompatibilities in the HIV/AIDS statements that I believe since we are told that this is a crisis of planetary proportionalities we must look at things a new to stop this flagellum and disbursal on humanity.

Let us not bury that one clip we believed that bloodletting was a remedy for most diseases and that baccy is good for us. Now we cognize differently.

Pentagon Admits 190,000 Weapons Are Missing In Iraq

The Independent, a newspaper based in Britain, published the followers study Tuesday from its correspondent, Prince Rupert Cornwell, in Washington. It is follows studies on CNN and other mass media mercantile establishments that the Pentagon acknowledges losing path of 190,000 assault rifles and handguns supplied by the United States to Iraki security military units in 2004 and 2005. The Pentagon additional states that the weaponry may have got fallen into the custody of insurgents.

The disclosure, by the guard dog Government Accountability business office (GAO) intends that the Pentagon makes not cognize what happened to roughly a 3rd of the weaponry it have provided to develop and fit Iraki military units - an attempt important to restoring some color of order in Iraq.

The unaccounted-for arms include 80,000 handguns plus an estimated 110,000 Soviet-made AK-47 assault rifles. Amnesty International studies that, during the same old age of 2004 and 2005, more than than 350,000 similar arms were removed from Bosnia And Herzegovina and Srbija by private contractors working for the Pentagon and sent to Iraq.

In addition, 135,000 pieces of organic structure armor and 115,000 helmets have got also disappeared, again perhaps to insurgents. To date, the United States have spent more than than $19 billion on developing the Iraki security forces, including almost $3 billion for weapons. (I can't assist thought how much wellness care, school books, Bridges and clinics that money would have got bought the taxpayers of the USA.)

According to the GAO, the statistical distribution of the arms was "haphazard and rushed," accusals the Pentagon makes not dispute. Ironically, during the old age under scrutiny, the arms programme was headed by General Saint David Petraeus.

He's the adult male whose study we all expect with bated breath in September -- the adult male whose version of the success or failure of the Republic Of Iraq warfare is the axis on which we tilt.

Our Congress, loath to stop the warfare thus far, maintains waiting for a "watershed moment."

How many such as minutes have got already passed while this state sat lulled by the prevarications on Fox News? How many such as minutes have got got been ignored by the Pentagon and the Congress, when any competent grouping would have said ENOUGH, THIS IS THE time TO end IT, once and for all?

In my view, missing 190,000 arms is not the public presentation of a military in control. It is the type of error made by incompetent, panicked, disorganized amateurs.

Sorry for the Light Posting

I have been attending to some family matters and have been unable to post the last couple of weeks. Doesn't look like I missed all that much though. Here is what I would have blogged about

  • Richardson makes a visit to New Hampshire. This is a good thing- I think he needs to get moving sooner than later

  • Out West, there appears to be some grass root support for the good governor building. The USA Today picked up the story here.

  • More proof Richardson deserves to be the next President: even the White House is apparently appreciative of Richardson's help with North Korea. The AP's story is here.

  • Some new polls out in Iowa and New Hampshire. I am too lazy to find individual links, so just check them out at Pollster. Its way to early for these to matter.
Finally, a friend and I were discussing why the main stream media doesn't consider Richardson a top tier candidate. He has the resume, the fund raising ability and the charisma. My friend suggested a simple answer- that Richardson is polling so low that the media has no choice but to call him a dark horse. I disagree. Compare with Mitt Romney- Romney is polling mostly in the single digits in Iowa, New Hampshire and nationally, yet he is generally considered in the top tier. So polls are not solely determinative.

I would argue the answer has to do with markets. Put simply, Richardson is the governor a small western state while Romney is the governor of Massachusetts. The main stream media is so east coast centric it will consider Western candidates as top tier material only in unique circumstances (McCain is such a case- but of course, he is a "maverick"). I think this why Richardson is not considered among the front runners.

I think this phenomenon can be seen not just in Presidential races, but throughout politics. Consider how much more attention the Virginia senate race got than say, the Montana senate race? Why was the media so fascinated with the Lieberman-Lamont race, which never projected to impact control of the senate? It got little press, but the Hawaii democratic primary was fought over many of the same issues. Ever notice the media obsession with racial politics, which is primarily a function of the Northeast-Southeast divide. I saw a great article by Gary Hart on this topic (I'll try to find it later). Why else has no Western candidate (I am not including California) ever been able to win the presidency?
