Dear President Bush:
Thank you for doing so much to educate people regarding God's Law. I have learned a great deal from you and understand why you would propose and support a constitutional amendment banning same sex marriage. As you said, "in the eyes of God marriage is based between a man a woman." I try to share that knowledge with as many people as I can. When someone tries to defend the homosexual lifestyle, for example, I simply remind them that Leviticus 18:22 clearly states it to be an abomination... End of debate.
I do need some advice from you, however, regarding some other elements of God's Laws and how to follow them.
1. Leviticus 25:44 states that I may possess slaves, both male and female, provided they are purchased from neighboring nations. A friend of mine claims that this law applies to Mexicans, but not Canadians. Can you clarify? Why can't I own Canadians?
2. I would like to sell my daughter into slavery, as sanctioned in Exodus 21:7. In this day and age, what do you think would be a fair price for her?
3. I know that I am allowed no contact with a woman while she is in her period of menstrual uncleanness - Lev.15: 19-24. The problem is how do I tell? I have tried asking, but most women take offense.
The rest of the letter.

While suffering from bad spelling and some unfunny jokes, obituaries from the future is worth a read. If you only read one, scroll down to Keanu Reeves. I am a fan and found it hilarious.

Frist in 2008?
I was not aware of this, but Magnum Serpentine makes a good case that Senator Bill Frist might be making a run for the presidency in 08.

They will take an investment as well. Again, it's a short-term investment, where if we're successful in growing this economy, we'll look back and say, "it was a small price to pay" -- a war, or a potential war -- and we're not there yet -- for the freedoms of the people really of the world, and for the domestic agenda, for the seniors out there who are really trading off back in their homes now prescription drugs versus rent or their groceries. -source
I wonder if anyone will ask him if 1,000+ dead americans, 10,000+ wounded americans and untold thousands of dead iraqis is a small price.

A car is nearly submerged in water on a flooded street in Sausalito, Calif., Sunday, Jan. 9, 2005. More heavy rain spread across parts of California on Sunday and snow piled deeper in the mountains as the state sat under a storm system that already had snowbound motorists and caused flooding.
NEARLY SUBMERGED? It is in what looks like four, maybe five, INCHES of water.
Is it jealousy over the tsunami? All the media in California seems to have lost it's mind about some rain. I mean, hell, you can still see most of a normal traffic cone. Places that have real flooding have flood gauges that measure in feet.

Oh! to be in Paris between 1917 and 1924, especially if you were a genius or an independently wealthy American. Why Paris - what made people want to come here and create? Cheap wine? Nice cheese? A nostalgia for the birthplace of modern revolution?
The BBC is running a great feature on Paris in the 20's.

The St. Petersburg, Fla. police department is attempting to weed out weak recruits by showing a graphic, realistic video of life as a cop. The new approach is meant to improve police retention.
The current recruitment video, shown here, is a happy go lucky montage of cop activity where the worst thing in town is a couple of pot plants. The Jan Hammer-esque music is pure cheese as well.
According to the NPR story, the new video shows a local councilman blowing his head off at a press conference and gory crime scene footage.
Hope they post that one on their site!

The Bricklin is a gull-wing sports car that was manufactured primarily from Detroit parts in 1974 through early 1976 in Saint John, New Brunswick, Canada for exclusive sale in the United States. There were 2854 cars built before Bricklin went bankrupt. An estimated 1500 still exist today. Bricklin International (BI) reports 570 active members with cars on the road and in restoration..
Like the DeLorean which came after it, the Bricklin was a futuristic vehicle which was well liked by owners and the automotive press, but was never produced in large enough numbers to be profitable. Bricklin owners have a club which publishes a quarterly magazine and sponsors yearly meets on the east and west coasts.

We believe corporations are as important as politicians in American Politics.
You know what party a politician supports. Do you know how much support a corporation* (through its connected political action committee) and its employees (through their political contributions) put behind a political party, its candidates, and its causes?
ChooseTheBlue.com compiles information from third party sources primarily to show certain reported spending by political action committees connected with a corporation* and by that corporation's employees as political contributions, in each case related to recent federal elections.
If each American who voted "Blue" in 2004 spends $100 in 2005 on products of a corporation that by reason of its employees' or connected political action committees' political contributions supported "Blue" over "Red," $5 billion in revenues would be shifted to "Blue" supporting corporations!
This will be noticed! Choose where you buy ... and make a difference!!!
*Please Note: Corporations are generally not allowed to and do not make direct federal political contributions. This website's figures may combine contributions of a corporation's (and in some cases affiliates' and subsidsiaries') connected PACs, employees, and spouses. Many corporations do not have PACs.
