BREITBART.COM - Judge Refuses to Delay New Orleans Vote
: "A federal judge Monday refused to delay New Orleans' April 22 mayoral election, but told lawyers on both sides of the case to identify any problems that might hinder displaced residents' ability to vote and then solve them.
'I recognize that there is still room for improvement in that electoral process,' U.S. District Judge Ivan Lemelle said. "
The solution to Bird Flu and Mad Cow
If *and I have no doubt* this process can be perfected, you are looking at a solution to World Hunger, Mad Cow, Bird Flu, etc. Being able to 'grow' meat *yes this sounds very Bene Tleilax* allows a community to have unprecedented control over their food sources.
Color me as thinking this is big.
globeandmail.com: "Scientists can grow frog and mouse meat in the lab, and are now working on pork, beef and chicken. Their goal is to develop an industrial version of the process in five years.
If they succeed, cultured or in vitro meat could be coming to a supermarket near you. Consumers could buy hamburger patties and chicken nuggets made from meat cultivated from muscle cells in a giant incubator rather than cut from a farm animal.
Home chefs could make meat in a countertop device the size of a coffee maker. Before bed, throw starter cells and a package of growth medium into the meat maker and wake up to harvest fresh sausage for breakfast.
You could feel good about eating a healthy breakfast; the meat would have the fat profile of salmon, not pork. One day, the truly adventurous may be able to grow ostrich, wild boar, or other game."
Fuckwits selling the country out.
: "WASHINGTON (AP) -- The Senate Judiciary Committee approved sweeping election-year legislation Monday that clears the way for 11 million illegal aliens to seek U.S. citizenship, a victory for demonstrators
who had spilled into the streets by the hundreds of thousands demanding better treatment for immigrants.
With a bipartisan coalition in control, the committee also voted down proposed criminal penalties on immigrants
found to be in the country illegally. It approved a new temporary program allowing entry for 1.5 million workers seeking jobs in the agriculture industry."
The Religion of Poisoning Soccer Fans
BBC NEWS | UK | Accused 'talked of poison plot'
: "'He could not understand why all these UK brothers were coming over to Pakistan. They could easily do jihad operation in England,' he said.
He said Mr Mahmood had said: 'You could get a job in a soccer stadium as a beer vendor.
He said you could stand on street corners selling poison burgers and then just leave the area
'You just put poison in a syringe, injecting it in a can and put a sticker on it which would stop it leaking and give it out.
'Or you could get mobile vending carts - all those vans going round selling burgers. He said he had done it. I didn't believe it.
'He said you could stand on street corners selling poison burgers and then just leave the area.'"

nbc5i.com - News - Bar Sweep Sparks Controversy
: "The Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission sent a message to bar patrons last week.
TABC agents and Irving police swept through 36 Irving bars and arrested about 30 people on charges of public intoxication. Agency representatives say the move came as a proactive measure to curtail drunken driving.
North Texans interviewed by NBC 5, however, worried that the sweep went too far."
The State of Kansas don's the JackBoot.
Kansas City Star | 03/22/2006 | Pulled over in Kansas? Get ready to show your license, registration — and fingerprints
: "If you are stopped by police in Kansas, don’t be surprised if the officer pulls out a little black box and takes your fingerprints.
The gadget allows officers to identify people by fingerprints without hauling them to the police station.
Over the next year the Kansas Bureau of Investigation will test 60 of the devices with law enforcement agencies around the state. State officials said similar tests are being planned for New York, Milwaukee and Hawaii.
“This is definitely new,” said Gary Page, Overland Park Police Department crime lab. “It’s been talked about, but as far as I know they are not in use anywhere in the metro.”
The tests in Kansas are part of a bigger $3.6 million upgrade to the KBI’s statewide fingerprint database, unveiled Tuesday by the KBI and Kansas Attorney General Phill Kline."
I for one have lost hope that this Admin will do anything about this.
ABC News: EXCLUSIVE: Iraq Weapons -- Made in Iran?
: "intelligence officials tell ABC News that they have caught shipments of deadly new bombs at the Iran-Iraq border.
They are a very nasty piece of business, capable of penetrating U.S. troops' strongest armor.
* Anatomy of a Bomb
What the United States says links them to Iran are tell-tale manufacturing signatures — certain types of machine-shop welds and material indicating they are built by the same bomb factory.
'The signature is the same because they are exactly the same in production,' says explosives expert Kevin Barry. 'So it's the same make and model.'
U.S. officials say roadside bomb attacks against American forces in Iraq have become much more deadly as more and more of the Iran-designed and Iran-produced bombs have been smuggled in from the country since last October."

Palestinians Vote to Strip Abbas of Powers
: "Hamas headed into a full-blown confrontation with Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas on Monday, voting to strip him of powers he was hastily awarded by his Fatah Party in the last session of the outgoing parliament.
In Gaza City, an Israeli missile strike killed two Islamic Jihad militants and three bystanders, including two young boys.
The Hamas-Fatah conflict has been simmering since Hamas swept Fatah out of office in January parliamentary elections, ending four decades of unchallenged rule by the party of the late Yasser Arafat.
Hamas has 74 seats in the new parliament and Fatah just 45, and the first order of business for Hamas was to cancel the powers the outgoing parliament gave to Abbas, the Fatah leader, authorizing him to cancel laws passed by the new parliament and appointing Fatah officials to key positions.
In the West Bank administrative capital of Ramallah, Fatah delegates walked out, accusing Hamas of twisting the rules to weaken Abbas' authority.
About 15 Fatah gunmen marched on parliament in Gaza City, firing into the air. The gunmen eventually headed to a Fatah meeting, where they demanded their party stay out of the government Hamas is setting up and threatened to kill any Fatah official who joined."
The unvarnished truth of the 'Moderate Muslim'
FrontPage magazine.com :: Why the Peaceful Majority is Irrelevant by Debris Trail
: "I used to know a man whose family were German aristocracy prior to World War Two. They owned a number of large industries and estates. I asked him how many German people were true Nazis, and the answer he gave has stuck with me and guided my attitude toward fanaticism ever since.
'Very few people were true Nazis' he said,
'but, many enjoyed the return of German pride, and many more were too busy to care. I was one of those who just thought the Nazis were a bunch of fools. So, the majority just sat back and let it all happen. Then, before we knew it, they owned us, and we had lost control, and the end of the world had come. My family lost everything. I ended up in a concentration camp and the Allies destroyed my factories.'
We are told again and again by 'experts' and 'talking heads' that Islam is the religion of peace, and that the vast majority of Muslims just want to live in peace."
