Weekend Round Up

Edited to correct a couple of spelling errors and to add a couple of links in.

  • Shootings in Colorado Colorado missionary training center, 2 dead, and another shooting attack at the New Life Church in Colorado Springs, no fatalities reported at this time. (Via LGF)

  • It's all about the 'O'
    While on a one hour lunch break at work, I watched about 30 minutes of Oprah's campaign for Barack Obama Saturday evening. Insert various and sundried interruptions as the break room is between the office and time clock so lots of employee traffic filtered through. Somewhere along the line Oprah says something to the effect of "I know many of you have lost family." in reference to the soldiers who have died in Iraq and Afghanistan. The audience laughed. What was so funny about that? It just cemented my belief that people were there to see her, not Barack Obama. And apparently they weren't listening to what she was saying either. (Via Lucianne)

  • Sean Penn Endorses Kucinich One nut takes up with another nut. I would still like to see Ron Paul and Mr. Kucinich go head to head to see which fruitcake wins. I would also like to see Romney's Hair and Edwards' hair compete to see who wins or maybe I should just go to bed and get some sleep before I lose my mind completely. (Via CQ And LGF)

  • Destroyed TapesThe decision to destroy the tapes of the waterboarding of two terrorist suspects was against reccommendations from the White House and Congress. (Via CQ)

  • Speaking of 'Torture' From the Captain's Quarters: The CIA stopped using waterboarding after 2003 .Yet long before "waterboarding" entered the public discourse, the CIA gave key legislative overseers about 30 private briefings, some of which included descriptions of that technique and other harsh interrogation methods, according to interviews with multiple U.S. officials with firsthand knowledge. That doesn't settle the question as to whether waterboarding constitutes torture, but it certainly calls into question the notion that politics has nothing to do with the debate. One of those legislative overseers was none other than NANCY PELOSI. (Via CQ)

    This next story was covered in several different blogs.

  • Cheney vs Pelosi Round Two Pelosi is offended because Cheney implied certain democrats have no spine. (Via Sister Toldjah And Politico)

  • The Religion of Peace A young muslim woman converts to christianity and is now the target of death threats, from her own father. (Via Michelle Malkin)

  • Huckabee take 2 Huckabee Stands By His AIDS Statement from 1992 (Via Texas Fred)

  • Global Warming
    China says global warming is not their problem because they're still a developing country. They say the job of cleaning the environment should belong to wealthy countries. In other words, they want us to clean up their mess. Beg pardon?
    Your population is much larger than ours, China. You use a lot of fossil fuel to power your economy. Clean up your own act. You have 20 of the world's 30 most polluted cities. You have been sending products manufactured in your country, to us, that have killed our pets and poisoned our children yet we still do business with you. We CAN change that, not easily, but it isn't impossible either. Anyone remember the "Buy American" motto?
    (Via Belmont)

    In other news: Apparently images are all the rage this weekend.

  • 40 Iraqi women killed in the last month The religion of peace at it again. These women did nothing wrong except wear the wrong clothing.

  • Santa sends the wrong body image First the Cookie monster is admonished for eating cookies all the time. Hello! What is his name? It isn't carrot monster! Then Jennifer Love Hewitt, at a size 2, is told she's fat. Now the experts, who obviously have too much time on their hands, think Santa Claus sends the wrong body image. Who named them body image police? Give me a break already.

  • The American Image America's credibility, according to the 'law makers' (read politicians), is damaged by everything under the sun. If we're in such a crapper of a world relations dilemma then why do other countries still turn to us for assistance? Why do people still come here for a visit? For medical attention? Why do other countries still do business with us? I don't care what other countries think. This isn't a high school popularity contest. It's a struggle for survival. I'm starting to think the lawmakers'/image police need to find a new line of work. Or get a life. Maybe both.

    SPQR:

    The shooting in Colorado Springs was ended by the church's security guard shooting and killing the gunman. I believe current reports are one victim of the gunman was killed and four others are being treated in hospital.

    I was going by the earlier report on yahoo news. There was a blurb on tv a few minutes ago reporting 4 dead. Confusion abounds. Maybe things will be clearer in a few hours.

    SPQR:

    Melissa, the four dead number is adding together the shooting in Arvada ( 2 died ) with the one in Colorado Springs.

    Arvada and Colo Spgs police confirm that the same gunman, Matthew Murray, was the perpetrator of both Arvada and Colo Spgs incidents.
