Does the NFL View Conservative White Americans as Racists?
Florida's outspoken Rep. Grayson draws GOP challenger
Limbaugh, who is trying to buy the St. Louis Rams, has downplayed racial
comments that he's made in the past by saying if he was a racist, why would he
want to be part of a business that is 70% African American? Well, I don't know.
Maybe because you would own them? Think that has anything to do with it?" --Jay
Pat Tillman Update
The man chosen by Barack
Obama to lead the war in Afghanistan also helped cover up the friendly-fire
death of NFL player turned soldier Pat Tillman. He administered a fraudulent
medal recommendation to keep the public in the dark.
So why isnít anybody talking about it?

flu. President Obama has ordered Fox News quarantined for up to five years, as
long as it takes!" --Jay Leno
course, the Republicans still can't believe that Barack Obama won the Nobel
Peace Prize. And the Democrats can't believe that Sarah Palin wrote a book. So,
it's even." --Jay Leno
Army Goofs Up Body Armor Design
The Army made critical mistakes in tests of a new body armor design, according to congressional investigators who recommend an independent review of the trials before the gear is issued to troops in Iraq and Afghanistan.
Department of Homeland Security announced that instead of putting illegal
immigrants in jail, what they're going to do is let them stay at converted
hotels. Let me explain how this works. If you're a homeless American whose house
has been foreclosed on, you're desperate for shelter, here's what you do. You
sneak across the boarder to Mexico, you walk back in; the government puts you up
at the Sheraton. Fantastic deal." --Jay Leno

his hips a little on the dance floor at which point a committee in Sweden
immediately awarded him a Latin Grammy." --Conan O'Brien

big story out of Washington is this healthcare bill passed the Senate Finance
Committee by a vote of 14-9, I believe it was. The Bill cost over $800 billion.

Subject: How's it going?
Lisa, I often think of you and your dilemma. What's up? Have you sold your house? I wish you the very best. You deserve it. I sent you a little something via PayPal. I noticed that donations have dropped.
Thanks for writing Ben. And thank you so much for your support. Yes, donations have dropped. Fewer editions = less donations.
I'm doing pretty good. I return to the hospital in a couple of weeks for a cat scan and to see an oncologist to find out my test results. The good news is I now covered with my medical insurance here. I'm glad Costa Rica wants me to live unlike my good ol' US of A. The bad news is I still have Hodgkin's lymphoma.
The OTHER bad news was that my house was going into foreclosure at the end of the month if $920.31 wasn't paid. The good news is a very generous AHNC viewer paid my overdue mortgage. A big hug to Joe for saving my house.
What did I ever do to receive all this good karma?
