"After nearly two weeks of violence and mounting casualties on both sides, help is on the way.

Condoleezza Rice went into President Bush's office and said, 'I'm off to Lebanon.' And President Bush said, 'Vacation?'." --Jay Leno

Have you seen any of religion channels since Israel/Lebanon war? My God, these people are almost foaming at the mouth quoting that insane book of the Bible, "Revelations".

Thanks for calling---I feel the same way!

The U.S. government clamped down on prescription drug imports from Canada this week, provoking customer fury. It's perplexing. You would have thought that once Baby Boomers ran the federal government, the war on drugs would stop at arthritis medicine. ---- comedian Argus Hamilton

George W. Bush - Harken CEO 1983-1990
In 1990, Bush sold his remaining stock
options and left the oil business. Writer Jack Colhoun revealed some details of
that stock sale, referring to Bush by his childhood nickname “Junior”:
On June 22, 1990, George Jr. sold two-thirds of his Harken stock for $848,560-a cool 200 percent profit. The move was well timed. One week after Junior sold his stock, Harken announced a $23.2 million loss in quarterly earnings and Harken stock dropped sharply, losing 60 percent of its value over the next six months. On August 2, 1990, Iraqi troops moved into Kuwait and 541,000 U.S. forces were deployed to the Gulf. -- Famous Texans
