Explosion on Plane from Islam Infested Holland to Islam Infested Detroit

Initially most news organisations, including the BBC, reported that the explosion was caused by fireworks but in the early hours on Saturday morning the BBC said that the incident was being treated by the authorities as an attempted terrorist attack.

The explosion occurred as the Airbus 330 with 278 passengers on board landed at Detroit on Friday afternoon local time. Several people were slightly injured.

Alabama: Bobby Bright Coy About Switching Parties

{{w|Bobby Bright}}, member of the United State...Image via Wikipedia

Bright has a lot in common with Griffith, who announced his party switch earlier today: Both are freshmen from districts that voted heavily for John McCain in 2008; they each won their races very narrowly; and both have voted against the big-ticket items of the Democratic agenda this year. So I asked what Bright’s thoughts were on Griffith, whether he was committed to staying with the Democrats, and what his overall concerns might be about the political situation in Congress.

PARTY SWITCH! Alabama Democrat Rep. Parker Griffith Joins GOP

{{w|Parker Griffith}}, member of the United St...

Griffith’s party switch comes on the eve of a pivotal congressional health care vote and will send a jolt through a Democratic House Caucus that has already been unnerved by the recent retirements of a handful of members who, like Griffith, hail from districts that offer prime pickup opportunities for the GOP in 2010.

Who Says Voter Fraud Doesn’t Matter?

Now that the Senate Health Care Grab has its 60 votes, think back to the Minnesota senate race between Al Franken and Norm Coleman. A tighter control over voter fraud would have kept the Democrats from gaining that last vote they needed. There are consequences to elections, even tainted ones.

Change Nobody Believes In

Even in World War I there was a Christmas truce.
The rushed, secretive way that a bill this destructive and unpopular is being forced on the country shows that “reform” has devolved into the raw exercise of political power for the single purpose of permanently expanding the American entitlement state. An increasing roll of leaders in health care and business are looking on aghast at a bill that is so large and convoluted that no one can truly understand it, as Finance Chairman Max Baucus admitted on the floor last week. The only goal is to ram it into law while the political window is still open, and clean up the mess later.

Democrats oblivious to growing voter disquiet

The Democrats’ yearlong spending orgy, record $1.4 trillion budget deficits and a $12 trillion national debt have been overshadowed by the economy and jobs, health care reform and other issues. But they are part and parcel of a spending binge that has spawned a taxpayer rebellion and driven Mr. Obama’s job approval polls down into the 40s.
