A little stroll down memory lane with Senator "Straight Talk" McCain, and an update on political pressure on local schools. Lovely!
For those who are fascinated by strictly enterpreting the US Constitution. This sound file features Gardner Goldsmith, the insightful caller 'Craig', and Karen Testerman, of Cornerstone Policy Research.
As reported by the Drudge Report, George Bush's expressed opinion that the "Star Spangled Banner" be sung in English does not seem to jibe with his own background on the campaign trail.
Kevin Phillips, author of "American Dynasty", first noted it in his book, and Drudge has broadened the exposure.
Here is the link:
The President may be slow to recognize his own hypocrasy, but at least he doesn't have bird flu.
Here, also, is the latest on the US government's plan to shield us from the flu.
It's a good thing ABC News is watching this pote
Great educators are everywhere... Case in point Pamela Rogers:
We give you the Fenway Park remake of the song...
In Pig Latin!
Here is a sample from today's game.
In solidarity with the Latino Community that wants to promote a Spanish language version of the National Anthem, the folks at Fenway Park have translated the song into another popular language...
Here is a sample of the opening:
"Ohway aysay ancay ouyay eesay... ybay ethay awn'sday earlyway ightlay... atwhay osay oudlypray eway ailedhay atway ethay ilight'stway astlay eamingglay..."
Fenway Spokesman Seth Lopez says: "We just thought it was the right thing to do. And it shows solidarity with a large portion of our fans. Ogay oxsay!!"
Fed Chariman Bernanke has suggested that if gas prices continue to rise, he has a great idea:
Raise interest rates.
As John Cleese would say with tongue planted firmly in cheek, "BRILLIANT!"
It needs stressing: inflation and gas prices are not connected. Listen to this sound file and you will get more information.
As Charlton Heston said in "Planet of the Apes", "it's a MAD HOUSE, a MAAAAD HOUUUSE!"
Listen as people like Chuck Grassley of Iowa (see the photo of him here at the Conspiracy site a few pages in) and Chuck Schumer come up with brilliant ideas to further manipulate the oil market.
Government has never improved ANY facet of the market. Government stands in diametric opposition to economic development and freedom.

Chatting with Bill Unfairro, a local businessman defending his industry, or, at least defending it in a way that Chuck Schumer would love.
More, with Myron ebell of CEi (www.CEI.org) on gas prices and political rhetoric.
Plus, an interview with Bill Unfairro, owner of a nearby gas station. He's a man who can really tell us the truth about gas prices.
On April 26, Gardner Goldsmith welcomed Myron Ebell, evironmental policy and energy expert of the Competitive Enterprise Institute. Together, they investigated the claims of leftists in both major parties that the government should get further involved in regulating gas prices and taxing oil companies.
This is part one of two.
Remembering the man who said, "Live Free or Die!"
Thanks, Jack Horkheimer.
Neeeeeew Jerrrrrseyyy.. Where the trees grow tall, the grass grows green, and laws prevent people from pumping their own gas.
NJ has spawned a real winner. Congressman Robet Menendez.
Here he is on the morality of supply and demand -- Congress style.
Listen to this short bite, it's something on which to chew...
And read about Mr. Menendez's home state right here! It's FUN!
Chuck Schumer, the senior Senator from New York (makes one wish we could disown that state) does George Bush one better in the hypocrasy department as he questions the morals of gas suppliers and oil companies.
This, of course, coming from a guy who gets an AUTOMATIC pay increase in the Senate unless he votes against it. This coming from the guy who never mentioned trying to cut the 69 Cents per gallon that the federal and state governments impose on us at the pump, or the regulations that have virtually stopped all off-shore drilling near the US, or the regulations that make it so expensive to refine oil here in the US that it has become more economically efficient to refine it in other countries. We haven't built a new refinery in the US since 1976, but Chuck Schumer doesn't mention this in his harangue.
Listen to President Bush as he accepts and promotes the idea that the federal government should have a role in "investigating" the price of gasoline.
As you do, see if you can find any Constitutional rationale for the existence of the federal organizations he mentions, and see if he mentions the 54 Cent per gallon tariff the US imposes on foreign ethanol, which the government FORCES us to put in our gastanks, but which ADM and the "Renewable Fuel Association" (where he spoke today to announce his new energy plan) NEVER want revoked.
This is a short bite, for your entertainment...
With El G Grande and Greg Gorman of Talk Radio News.
