It’s for the Children TM

They all do it, it’s just that the public officials in Massachusetts are both arrogant and stupid enough to admit it

State troopers have been ordered to ticket more Mass Pike motorists inside Route 128 as the cash-starved authority looks to pump an additional $600,000 in speeding fines into its coffers.

Help Stop Global Warming

Do your part, but if you can’t, do worry as I just found an internet site offering free carbon offsets for those times when you just need to burn some extra carbon…

More on the NIE Nonsense…

Let’s suppose for a moment that everything we’ve read about the NIE report is true and Iran did halt their nuclear weapons program in 2003 and the program is still in a halted state.

If this is in fact what happened, then it means that the Administrations foreign policy and diplomatic efforts with Iran worked. In other words, Bush & Co. somehow managed temporarily secure the Sword of Damocles. And after somehow securing the sword, they then continued to publicly pursue efforts to disarm Iran’s nuclear potential. And for this they are being blasted by the mainstream media… Am I missing anything?

Let’s suppose the administration had made their success public. Would this have been heralded by the msm as another ‘Mission Accomplished’ when this very report claims that they can still have nuclear weapon capabilities "sometime during the 2010-2015 time-frame."

Again, I ask you – why do you think Iran halted their nuclear program in 2003?

Boost Your Brain Power

Who cares if it works – it sounds like fun!

Lots of sex, dark chocolate and the Scandinavian routine of cold meat for breakfast are the best ways to boost brain power, a new book claims.

And watching soap operas, mixing with serial moaners and fat-free diets should be avoided in the quest for increased mental ability, the book says.

Strange Coincidences…

So, the NIE says that Iran is put its nuclear weapons program on hold, contradicting the Administrations claims that Iran was "determined to develop nuclear weapons." Which, of course is how Reuters spins the whole story…

WASHINGTON (Reuters) - A new U.S. intelligence report says Iran halted its nuclear weapons program in 2003 and it remains on hold, contradicting the Bush administration's earlier assertion that Tehran was intent on developing a bomb.

Naturally, they missed the obvious story. What happened in 2003 that made them stop?
