U.S. Rep. Charles Rangel, the incoming chairman of the House of Representatives' tax-writing committee, said he would introduce legislation to reinstate the draft as soon as the new, Democratic-controlled Congress convenes in January.Remember how the Democrats keep saying that the Republicans will re-instate the draft if you elect them... Just another thing to think about when you get ready to vote in the next election.
Asked on CBS' "Face the Nation" if he was still serious about the proposal for a universal draft he raised a couple of years ago, he said, "You bet your life. Underscore serious."
Iranian MPs back fingerprinting Americans on entry
Sun Nov 19, 2006 9:00am ET
TEHRAN (Reuters) - Iran's conservative-dominated parliament, in a tit-for-tat measure, passed a bill on Sunday obliging the government to fingerprint U.S. citizens entering the Islamic Republic, state radio reported.Does this bother anyone else? I think they have the right to fingerprint anyone they want to, it is after-all their country. I don't see this hurting the 'bountiful' Iranian American tourist industry at all.
The proposal, backed by 135 votes to 26, also requires a complete security check on every American who enters Iran. The bill now goes to the hardline Guardian Council, a constitutional watchdog body, before becoming law.

Massachusetts Sen. John Kerry insisted on Sunday his "botched joke" about President Bush's Iraq policy would not undermine a possible White House campaign in 2008.Please let Kerry run again, the humor would help lighten the democratic primary long enough for him to go down quick and hard.
"Not in the least," Kerry, the Democratic presidential nominee in said when asked if the furor over his comment had caused him to reconsider a 2008 race. "The parlor game of who's up, who's down, today or tomorrow, if I listened to that stuff, I would never have won the nomination."

All too often we are told that suicide bombers are martyrs. The word martyr is used to engender greater emotional impact than the deed warrants.[snip]
Glen Beck's recent episode of Exposed gives a perfect example. We see Islamo-fascists of all ages proselytizing based on the glory of martyrdom.
You cannot martyr yourself.
