Obama Declares National Emergency for H1N1

This is getting more serious all of a sudden. Obviously the authorities don't want to create panic. But we have to be vigilant. I personally don't trust the government to protect the American people. Do you?

in reference to:

"President Barack Obama declared the swine flu outbreak a national emergency and empowered his health secretary to suspend federal requirements and speed treatment for thousands of infected people.

The declaration that Obama signed late Friday authorized Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius to bypass federal rules so health officials can respond more quickly to the outbreak, which has killed more than 1,000 people in the United States."

Who Murdered 7-year-old Somer Thompson

Another little girl abducted and then murdered. When will we get outraged that this continues to happen.
in reference to:
""Detectives searching for a 7-year-old's killer have interviewed more than 100 sex offenders living nearby, sifted through tons of garbage and combed the well-kept neighborhood where Somer Thompson disappeared.Missing child posters featuring the slain girl's face, framed by her thick brown bangs, still plaster nearly every utility pole along the mile-long route from her elementary school to her suburban Jacksonville home."

World's Most Expensive Embassy in Baghdad Needs $130M of Repairs

This one of Bush's most obscene non-achievements. It was intended for the permanent occupation of Iraq. But like everything done by the previous administration, it was a fiasco.

in reference to:

"It is the world’s most expensive embassy, costing more than $700 million and designed to withstand earthquakes and insurgents. Yet only nine months after being opened, the U.S. Embassy in Iraq is riddled with problems expected to cost more than $130 million to fix.

Nobody praised its architecture when it was inaugurated in January — think Milton Keynes on the Moon. The cube-like structure, topped with razor wire, is the size of Vatican City and features a supermarket and swimming pool. But the 2,000 or so Americans moving in believed, at least, that it would keep them safe and comfortable.

Not so. A report by a U.S. Government inspector-general yesterday pointed to staggering State Department incompetence. The structure, measuring more than 100 acres, and supposedly self- sufficient, is facing an enormous repair bill. Plumbing mistakes, for example, mean that the deputy ambassador has sewage-scented air blown into his residence."
