North Korea Missiles

From YahooNews:

The United States and Japan have detected signs that North Korea is preparing to launch a ballistic missile capable of reaching almost anywhere in Japan, Japanese government sources said Thursday.

The preparations were detected after the reclusive communist state refused to take part in a fourth round of six-party talks on ending its nuclear ambitions and said it would never give up its nuclear deterrent.

Tokyo and Washington had detected the signs after analyzing data from reconnaissance satellites and radio traffic, the Japanese government sources said.

North Korean military vehicles, soldiers and possibly missile engineers were converging on several Rodong missile bases in the northeastern part of the isolated communist state, they said.

The signs were first detected Tuesday, the sources said.

What I want to know is what would Kerry do, smarter, and wiser? Call France or the UN? We need to keep an eye on this problem..

Kerry needs to rethink his strategy

From FoxNews:

Former President Carter said Wednesday that the apparent open-ended presence of U.S. troops in Iraq has contributed to the wave of hostage-takings and other bloodshed.

"A lot of political analysts have said that one of the main reasons the Bush-Cheney administration went into Iraq was to establish a permanent military base there," Carter said in an interview with The Associated Press. "I think this arouses a great deal of unnecessary opposition."

Carter's remarks came as the family of fellow Georgian Jack Hensley learned that the contractor had been beheaded by his captors in Iraq. He was the second American hostage killed there by Islamic extremists in as many days.

"As much as any president in history, I was afflicted psychologically and politically by the holding of American hostages," Carter said. "So my heart goes out to all those who are involved in a similar crisis, particularly the Hensley family."

"The overwhelming issue in this country is the Iraqi war and the war against terrorism and who can address those problems more wisely and more honestly," Carter said. "I think that's the issue that Kerry has to pursue, because, in my opinion, President Bush has not been honest with the American people and has certainly failed in almost everything he professes to be doing in Iraq and in Afghanistan, unfortunately."

OK so Carter is supporting Kerry’s latest position on Iraq. This can not be good news for Kerry. Carter is the single biggest failure as President as can be thought of by most people. One thing is almost completely assured. If you want to do the right thing, do the opposite of what Carter is tell you. His foreign policy history is like looking at a nightmare. His answer has almost always been appeasement. Give them what ever it is they want, and don’t get in there way. Lead from behind. That is not the road we want to be on now, and Kerry agrees with this guy?

Soldier beaten at concert

From NBC 4I news:

Foster Barton, 19, of Grove City, received a Purple Heart for his military service in Iraq. He almost lost his leg last month after a Humvee he was riding in ran over a landmine.

Barton said he was injured again Friday night in a crowded parking lot as he was leaving the Toby Keith concert at Germain Amphitheatre. The solider was injured so badly that he can't go back to Iraq as scheduled.

"I don't remember getting hit at all, really," said Barton, a member of the 1st Calvary Division. "He hit me in the back of the head. I fell and hit the ground. I was knocked unconscious and he continued to punch and kick me on the ground."

Barton and his family said he was beat up because he was wearing an Iraqi freedom T-shirt.

"It's not our fault," Barton said. "I'm just doing a job."

According to a Columbus police report, six witnesses who didn't know Barton said the person who beat him up was screaming profanities and making crude remarks about U.S. soldiers, Burton reported. Barton's mother said she has a message for her son's alleged attacker, who police said ran into the crowd after the incident and was not arrested.

"He needs our prayers, just like the insurgents, because he's a coward," Cindy Barton said.

Well Kerry wanted Viet Nam. Looks like he is getting it. Is this how Kerry wants people to treat soldiers? This guy, this coward, that beats up on a single soldier, from behind. He is such a piece of crap. Hay come and find my fat old ass and try that crap on me. Or better yet go to your local army base and find a infantry man and punch him in the face. Yes you would have to face him and not sucker punch him, but you will defiantly find a different result to your actions. I hope find this piece of crap and through the book at him.

Washington State Solidly for Kerry!

From Fox News:

Washington state, once considered a fiercely competitive presidential battleground, is now firmly in Democrat John Kerry's column, according to a new poll commissioned by The Columbian newspaper of Vancouver, Wash.

Kerry beat President Bush 51 percent to 42 percent among Washington residents. Republicans haven't carried Washington since Ronald Reagan's re-election in 1984. The Bush-Cheney ticket lost the state by 5.6 percentage points in 2000.

"This is one of Kerry's better states in the country," and Washington no longer seems to be a battleground state, said pollster Thom Riehle, president of Ipsos-Public Affairs in Washington, D.C., which conducted the poll on behalf of The Columbian.

When I saw this I just had to laugh. I mean was there ever a doubt? This is the People Republic of Washington for goodness sake. I always wondered why President Bush would even spend any of his money here. This place was a lost cause from the word go for him. It would take a lot of really bad things happening to this state to change there mind. We have had at least one. Boeing Corp leaving Seattle, but I guess there will need to be more. That’s sad.

Jay Leno!

I love Jay, From Fox News:

"President Bush spoke to the United Nations. A little later John Kerry spoke at a live press conference that was seen around the world. And then Ralph Nader spoke to some people who were having lunch next to him at the International House of Pancakes."

"At his big press conference, John Kerry introduced his four-point plan for Iraq. That was one point for each of his positions."

"Bush and Kerry have agreed to three debates. The first debate will cover the 1960s, and the second debate the early '70s, and in the third debate, if there's time, some topical issues."

"Even though President Bush is leading in the polls, they say John Kerry's greatest strength is that, when he's under pressure, he can turn things around. No kidding. Sometimes he does it in the same sentence!"

"John Kerry is also going to appear on Dr. Phil's show this week, and, not to be outdone, John Edwards is taping an episode of 'Where Are They Now?'"

Ex-Guradsman Contacted Kerry Campaign? NO!

From Fox News:

A retired Texas National Guard official mentioned as a possible source for disputed documents about President Bush's service in the Guard said he passed along information to a former senator working with John Kerry's campaign.

The retired Guard official, Bill Burkett, said in an Aug. 21 e-mail to a list of Texas Democrats that after getting through "seven layers of bureaucratic kids" in the Democrat's campaign, he talked with former Georgia Sen. Max Cleland about information that would counter criticism of Kerry's Vietnam War service. The Associated Press obtained a copy of the e-mail Saturday.

"I asked if they wanted to counterattack or ride this to ground and outlast it, not spending any money. (Cleland) said counterattack. So I gave them the information to do it with," Burkett wrote.

I know all of you out there just wont believe this, I mean Kerry would never use this kind of information. At least it explains how they had the commercial ‘fortunate son’ ready so quickly after C-BS ran with the forgeries. They had an inside track. Hell they might have even talked to Rather and helped persuade him to go for it. Now I am not sure, but I think this could have violated some kind of campaign law.. not that they care about that sort of thing to much.

Louisiana Bans Gay Marriages, Civil Unions

From Fox News:

With 99 percent of precincts reporting, the amendment was winning approval with 78 percent of the vote, and support for it was evident statewide. Only in New Orleans, home to a politically strong gay community, was the race relatively close, and even there the amendment was winning passage. Turnout statewide appeared to be about 27 percent of Louisiana's 2.8 million voters, somewhat low for a state election.

Rawls said there were many possible grounds for challenging the results in state and federal court. One appeared Saturday, when voting machines were delivered late to some New Orleans precincts, keeping some from casting ballots for hours.

State director of elections Frances Sims said at least 59 precincts did not have voting machines when polls opened because officials with New Orleans' clerk of court's office failed to meet drivers who tried to deliver the machines earlier that morning. The problem was solved by midday.

If this is all they have to attach this in court than I think they are going to be sucking wind. I can just see it. 'Judge about 2 to 3 hundred people did not get to vote on this issue.' judge: 'you know your right. ok I will change the results based on 300 votes, so now it only passed by 77% fo the vote insted of 79%, ok all better. no GO AWAY'. Also notice they are going to make this a federal case. I hope the supreme court is ready to hear this one.
