Now for the rest of the story...

I've been searching for news; AP, UPI, etc., and I am sick to death of these stupid cartoons. Can you either stand up to these creeps, or convert?! Get it over with. Don't be cowards.
The picture shows a bearded man wearing fake pig ears, a pig nose, and a pink embroidered cap on his head. He was wearing the costume while participating in a pig-squealing contest at an annual festival in a farm village in southern France last summer.

The AP sent out the photo describing the pig-squealing contest on Aug. 14, 2005. The photo had no connection with Islam or the caricatures of the Prophet Muhammad published in a Danish newspaper in September. [read more].
How does it feel to be taken out of context? Get used to it. We had to, no thanks to you.

Are you aware that the Senate Intelligence (I know, it's an oxy-moron, lol) has 35 boxes of untranslated Arabic taken from Iraq that may have something to do with Saddam? How about the fact that an unreliable source claims to have information on the WMD's? It will be released to the press Feb. 17, 2006.

Now to get back to serious news. Did you hear about the earthquake in Turkey? How about this tidbit?

Top Republican rents lobbyist's apartment
WASHINGTON, Feb. 8 (UPI) -- The new U.S. House of Representatives majority leader rents a Washington apartment from a lobbyist with interests in legislation he has written or co-sponsored.

The Washington Post reports Rep. John A. Boehner, R-Ohio, rents a basement apartment from lobbyist John D. Milne and his wife Debra R. Anderson for $1,600 a month. [read more].
I told them not to do it. It doesn't matter that the man PAYS RENT. These Republicrats have to go. If they can't fight for the programs that put them in office or put up a fight against the constant barrage of attacks, who needs them?

Have you heard anything about this?
London Police: Mosque a Terrorist Haven
By David Stringer AP writer
LONDON (AP) -- Police and defense analysts believe the red brick mosque where Abu Hamza al-Masri preached was a haven for terrorists.

Worshippers included "shoe bomber" Richard Reid, alleged Sept. 11 plotter Zacarias Moussaoui, a suspect in a plot to bomb Los Angeles airport and a man convicted of plotting to poison Londoners. [read more].
No? Could it be that we are being saturated by these stupid cartoons? Hmm? And could the reason be for the saturation that Syria and Iran do not want people watching what they are doing?
Iran and Syria 'incited violence'
Condoleezza Rice said both countries had used the opportunity to incite violence and exploit Muslim anger. <...> But one of the clerics, Ahmed Akari, told the BBC the imams carried three extra caricatures of Muhammad that were far more inflammatory than the original 12, and were believed to have been drawn by extremists as part of a hatemail campaign.

Mr Akari said the imams had added them to their dossier to demonstrate the kind of attitudes that Muslims were facing in Denmark. [read more here] and here.
One light one for the road.
Bottled Water: Nectar of the Frauds?
Abid Aslam, OneWorld US Sat Feb 4, 4:49 PM ET
Consumers spend a collective $100 billion every year on bottled water in the belief--often mistaken, as it happens--that this is better for us than what flows from our taps, according to environmental think tank the Earth Policy Institute (EPI).

For a fraction of that sum, everyone on the planet could have safe drinking water and proper sanitation, the Washington, D.C.-based organization said this week. [read more].
Well, that should be enough for now. I don't know why I still feel like screaming...

Oh, I don't want to forget about the elections they had in Haiti yesterday. Andrew Selsky, the AP's Chief of Caribbean News, is blogging the news of the outcome and the happenings of the elections held yesterday. Were you aware they even had them? Damned cartoons.

They found bird flu in Nigeria.
