"Today was the big White House President's Day clearance sale -- all our ports must go, no offer refused, no enemy turned down, Crazy George is insane, come on down!" --Jay Leno
Thanks to Joe and Karen from California
"An Arab country in charge of ports. That’s like FEMA in charge of disaster relief. That's like Wayne Gretzky's wife in charge of your bank account. It's like Michael Jackson as your nanny." --David Letterman
We Know Bush Didn't Read His Own State Dept. Website
SAFETY AND SECURITY:
Americans in the United Arab Emirates should exercise a high level of
security awareness. The Department of State remains concerned about
the possibility of terrorist attacks against U.S. citizens and interests
throughout the world. Americans should maintain a low profile, vary routes
and times for all required travel, and treat mail and packages from
unfamiliar sources with caution. In addition, U.S. citizens are urged to
avoid contact with any suspicious, unfamiliar objects, and to report the
presence of the objects to local authorities. Vehicles should not be left
unattended, if at all possible, and should be kept locked at all times.
U.S. Government personnel overseas have been advised to take the same
precautions. In addition, U.S. Government facilities may temporarily close
or suspend public services from time to time as necessary to review their
security posture and ensure its adequacy.

"Bush concluded his tour today with a visit to the Energy Department's National Renewable Energy Lab in Golden, Colorado. Funny story, actually, two weeks ago, 32 workers were laid off from the lab due to a budget shortfall. This weekend, Energy Secretary Samuel Bodman transferred $5 million to the lab restoring the workers' jobs just in time for the president's visit. Wow, if only the president would visit Ford." --Jon Stewart

"More problems for the White House. Convicted lobbyist Jack Abramoff said he met with President Bush almost a dozen times, contradicting the White House claims that Bush didn't know him. In President Bush's defense, it was pretty dark inside Abramoff's back pocket." --Jay Leno

Thank you for what you do. I am honored to help in what small way I can.
It is sad when private organizations have to do what our government should be doing.
Taser's stun guns largely are used by law enforcement agencies but also
have been used by U.S. troops in Afghanistan and Iraq, Tuttle said.

I agree thoroughly. America is outsourcing US, our jobs, our companies and our ports.
The UAE or the British shouldn't be operating any of our transportation infrastructure, but they are.
The question should be -- are Americans too dumb to run our own transport services?
Wyn from Finland answered my question yesterday about who runs the ports in Finland. See below

In this image provided by NASA Wednesday Feb. 22, 2006 Astronomers using NASA's Hubble Space Telescope have confirmed the presence of two new moons around the distant planet Pluto. The moons were first discovered by Hubble in May 2005, but the Pluto Companion Search team probed even deeper into the Pluto system with Hubble on Feb. 15 to look for additional satellites and to characterize the orbits of the moons. In the image, Pluto is in the center and Charon is just below it. The moons, provisionally designated S/2005 P 1 and S/2005 P 2, are located to the right of Pluto and Charon. (NASA)
