Give war a chance

Fatalities from terrorism have dropped by 40 per cent while al-Qaeda has faced a dramatic collapse in support throughout the Muslim world.
There has been an “extraordinary, but largely unnoticed, positive change” in the sub-Saharan African security landscape, with the number of conflicts being waged reduced by more than half between 1999 and 2006, and the combat toll dropping by 98 per cent.

A decline in the total number of armed conflicts and combat deaths around the world also continues.


Who is Hussein?

That is a question that no one really knows.

It seems incredible that the MSM would accept this from any candidate, but I guess the ole "tingle up my leg" gets to all of them.

Filegate - Tennessee Style

Tennesseans like their BBQ pulled, their gravy red eye and they get their corn from a jar.

And if they don't, the THP will pass all the information about them around....

Best I can tell the people involved are all Repubs and/or opponents to the Governor's $20,000,000 party room or watch dog groups interested in government spending.

Of course the Guv says he'll check all this out and let us know.

Sure. No doubt.

Watch for the media to bury this as fast as possible.

A political operative with the state House Democratic Caucus said Wednesday that he — not the Highway Patrol — placed a drunken-driving arrest record of a Republican opponent in the House Republican caucus leadership offices.

The disclosure by Keith Talley counters claims by Republican leaders that the TennesseeHighway Patrol must have been involved in the political dirt-digging on a GOP candidate. The patrol is embroiled in yet another scandal as one of its officers is under investigation for running unauthorized criminal portal checks on as many as 182 Tennesseans.

The names of those individuals have not been released by THP leaders, who insist there are no state elected officials or candidates whom THP's Lt. Ronnie Shirley checked.

Republican House leaders this week claimed a link between that scandal and the mysterious appearance of the DUI records of Republican House
candidate A.J. McCall of Wilson County.

House Minority Leader Jason Mumpower, R-Bristol, said the documents appeared overnight in his locked Capitol complex office about a month and a half ago.

Republicans and DemocraticHouse Majority Leader Gary Odom continue to call for the list to be released and an outside agency to investigate."
