To the family of Capt. Speicher, I hope this brings you at least some peace of mind. Your son gave his all for this nation, may he rest in peace now!

WASHINGTON (AP) – A new strain of the virus that causes AIDS has been discovered in a woman from the African nation of Cameroon. It differs from the three known strains of human immunodeficiency virus and appears to be closely related to a form of simian virus recently discovered in wild gorillas, researchers report in Monday’s edition of the journal Nature Medicine.

I am having to fight with myself. I have a terribly strong urge to make a really tacky comment about the women of Cameroon doing the wild thing with gorillas. Oops… :?

Take a look at Cuba. That’s US if this ObamaKare, Cap and Trade and CZAR stuff aren’t stopped, and I mean soon.

Grad Sues College Because She Can’t Find a Job

Trina Thompson gave it the old college try, but couldn’t find work. Now she thinks her sheepskin wasn’t worth her time, and is suing her alma mater for her money back.

Grad Sues College Because She Can’t Find a Job

I can’t say this in all certainty but somehow, I just have a feeling that Trina Thompson may be leaning a little bit to the left politically. A degree doesn’t guarantee anyone a job, it means you completed the prescribed courses. But, in what I believe to be typical libber fashion, someone must be to blame. Why not the school. Idiot…

LONDON (AP) – Britain should abandon its anti-drug role in Afghanistan and focus on securing the country against the Taliban insurgency, a prominent group of U.K. lawmakers said Sunday

Lawmakers urge UK to drop Afghan drugs mission

That might be a good place to concentrate ALL of our efforts too. It’s not like the War on Drugs has been all that successful in S.E. Asia, Central and South America and so forth. Don’t get me wrong, I am NOT pro drugs, not in ANY way, but if past performance is any indicator, we really need to concentrate on fighting a WAR. Something our leadership of late seems to have forgotten how to do.

    Of course Ms. Thompson leans left. She and her mother are upset because the school didn’t do enough to find her a job. I’m wondering what she did to find herself a job? People on the left always want other to do it for them and blame others when it doesn’t get done.

    Fred, I’m gonna be laughing the rest of the afternoon about that cameroon/gorilla thing. LOL

She more than likely went to college on a grant and got a student loan from the trough and then gets educated and gets out with an attitude that everybody owes her.FUCK ME SILLY!!! Das ok, bama gone pay mah moatgage and buy gas foah mah cah. As the black panthere’s have been preaching..get over it whitey, This is a BLACK country now MOTHERF***ERS.
    Blacks throwing rocks at cars driven by whites. Oh boy!! Can you spell RACE RIOT coming to a town near you. Wait till election time?

    Perhaps the stupid college student should have studied something useful like chemistry or computers instead of Liberal Arts or French Lit. Then she would have a very good paying job now.

    Fred – You mentioned leadership in our govt. Correct me if I’m wrong but I don’t believe it exists at the present time.

    @ minuteman26

    Nothing to correct my friend…

    The Boy Scouts have better leadership than the USA does at this particular point in history…
