The mainstream media is loathe to call out Hillary on this garbage, which is why millions of us have to tune in to Jon Stewart to do it for us.
India has rebuffed a call by the United States for it to ask Iran to suspend its uranium enrichment programme.
The foreign ministry said neither India nor Iran needed external guidance on how to conduct bilateral relations.
It said relations between the two spanned centuries, and they were capable of handling them with due care.
Foto’s van prinses Máxima die een bril draagt, mogen niet in Nederland gepubliceerd worden. De Rijksvoorlichtingsdienst geeft geen toestemming voor publicatie van foto’s die eerder deze week werden gemaakt in Argentinië, waar de prinses was voor een werkbezoek.
De dienst hanteert de zelf opgestelde Mediacode, die plaatsing van foto’s in de privésfeer verbiedt.
Goh. Ik heb ook een Mediacode opgesteld voor mezelf. Raad eens wat die over deze foto’s zegt…
… Republican Representative John Duncan of Tennessee. Confronted with a vast amount of evidence provided by the American Academy of Pediatrics, the American Public Health Association, the US Institute of Medicine , the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, and the American Psychological Association that abstinence-only education does not work, does not reduce the incidence of either teen pregnancies or sexually transmitted disease, and that it is a waste of money, the honorable Mr Duncan declared his complete disinterest in data and expertise.
Rep. John Duncan, a Tennessee Republican, said that it seems “rather elitist” that people with academic degrees in health think they know better than parents what type of sex education is appropriate. “I don’t think it’s something we should abandon,” he said of abstinence-only funding.
Nobody is advocating an abandonment of the idea of encouraging abstinence; they’re saying that abstinence-only is a failure, and we should be encouraging dissemination of more information. I know, that’s terribly elitist — how dare we oppose some parents’ desire to keep their children ignorant and stupid.
As Gartner analyst Neil MacDonald spoke with a roomful of IT managers about the future of Windows, he asked two key questions. To learn how these tech professionals view Windows, he requested a show of hands:
First, he asked how many in the room felt that the current Windows course and speed is sustainable: Is it tenable, is it something we can actually live with?
“No one raised their hand,” MacDonald tells me.
Then, given that response, he asked: is radical change is necessary?
“And half the room raised their hand.”
Microsoft has the ability, if it felt threatened, to make these changes, he says. However, “There is currently nothing serious that threatens their position on the desktop, or their position with Office, and therefore they are not highly motivated to embark on such radical innovation.”
While the company feels some pressure to change, it’s the depth of the change that’s in question. “Microsoft is aware of the trends that we talked about, they acknowledge that the trends exist,” MacDonald says. “They disagree about whether radical change is necessary…I think they feel they can contain this, with continued incremental improvements in the modularity of the underlying operating system, repackaging different SKUs.”
“But I think there’s a disconnect between Microsoft and its customers on how bad it’s gotten.”
I’m sure this latest America-hating outburst by the bigoted preacher and McCain supporter John Hagee will lead to endless 24/7 analysis in the corporate media, especially Faux News, be the subject of an entire presidential debate, and raise all kinds of “electability” issues with regards to St. McCain, right?
PRAGER: Right, but in the case, did NPR get, is this quote correct though that in the case of New Orleans you do feel it was sin?
HAGEE: In the case of New Orleans, their plan to have that homosexual rally was sin. But it never happened. The rally never happened.
PRAGER: No, I understand.
HAGEE: It was scheduled that Monday.
PRAGER: No, I’m only trying to understand that in the case of New Orleans, you do feel that God’s hand was in it because of a sinful city?
HAGEE: That it was a city that was planning a sinful conduct, yes.
Shorter John Hagee: God damned the US because of teh gay.
