"AMERICA HAS a president, not a king. But just like royalty, the nation's commander in chief can keep his distance from the common man or woman."
Cindy Sheehan, the California mother of a son who died in Iraq, is camped out in Crawford, Texas, trying to get a face-to-face meeting with the vacationing President Bush. The Vacaville woman wants to tell the president he should pull American troops out of Iraq. Her son, Casey, was killed at age 24 in the Sadr City section of Baghdad on April 4, 2004
This pride of the president of the United States is going to turn to ashes. Now he has the pride and the glory, but it’s going to turn to ashes. He’s cocky, he’s really cocky. Americans are always gung-ho for war. Always. What hypocrisy. What self-righteousness. What confidence in the arm of the flesh. What a terrible mess he’s getting the world into.
Bush is a liar and a hypocrite that he flip-flops with things so often. The question they need to put to the American public is: “Is that oil really worth American blood and the lives of our boys? Is it worth fighting and dying for just to keep gasoline prices down so you can go for more joy rides?
Well, as far as I’m concerned, it’s not worth it. I can’t understand how any man, much less the president of the United States, could think about sending 250,000 men into war. But war is hell. God is absolutely against it.

The Flood

The Flood In fact, although the theory of evolution has long been taught as fact in most schools and universities with the Bible's account and other opposing views being given little or no voice, a growing number of respected scientists are joining the "creationist" camp. Evolutionists are fond of stating, "Evolution is a fact." But a fact is incontrovertible, meaning it is certain, undeniable, and not open to question. The truth is that the theory of evolution is not as factual and convincing as its proponents pretend.

The next big issue with which evolutionists take exception to is the Genesis account in chapters 6-9 of the worldwide flood, commonly called Noah's Flood. Did it cover the whole world? Is there any evidence today that such a flood ever occurred? How could all those animals fit in the Ark?

According to Genesis the Ark measured 300 x 50 x 30 cubits (Genesis 6:15), which is approximately 140 x 23 x 13.5 meters or 459 x 75 x 44 feet. The ratio of length to width to height is 30:5:3. Tests on models of the Ark made to exact specifications have shown that it could survive capsizing by waves of up to 200 feet high, and that even if it pitched to a near 90 degree angle it could then right itself.

The total volume of the Ark was 43,500 cubic meters or about 1.5 million cubic feet “equal to that of 522 standard American railroad livestock cars, each of which can hold up to 240 sheep. That means the Ark could hold over 125,000 animals, if the average size were that of a sheep. The Bible says that Noah took two of every kind of animal, bird and reptile, except when they were
"clean" animals he took seven. (There is some debate as to whether it was seven pairs or just seven in total.)

About 8,000 genera have been identified, including extinct ones. That would mean that there would have been about 16,000 animals, birds, and reptiles in the Ark. There was plenty of room for all the animals on Noah's Ark.

There is also the question of the very large ani­mals, such as the dinosaurs or even elephants. How did they get in the Ark? There is no mention that Noah took fully developed adult animals onto the Ark. Most animal experts say that younger animals are much easier to handle, so it would seem sensible for Noah to take adolescent or even younger animals. If this were the case, then only about 10% of the animals would have been bigger than sheep.

So since the Ark could theoretically hold. Many questions about how this or that happened remain unanswerable by means of scientific investigation, but more and more evidence is being uncovered that indicates the universe and all that is in it was the work of an intelligent designer, not chance.

Una delle sue lettere.

They ( the Americans)refuse to share their wealth with the rest of the World and its poor, their selfishness, their wickedness, their refusal to give communally with the rest of the World! We would rather lose our children, our son, our daughters and our babies to try to save our own necks, our own cities, our own wealth, our own selfish wicked living! !"--That is the cry of America today!
She refuses to surrender her wealth to the poor of the World, refuses to give, but is selfishly luxuriating in all kinds of extravagance, opulencea and luxuries--$20,000 bathtubs, $250,000 automobiles that guzzle the gas like mechanical drunkards, gorging themselves with food and throwing half of it away, wasting over one-half of the World's priceless resources while millions are starving!
Scusate, ma come si puo' dare credito ad matto che parla/scrive Cosi?
America e' la piu' generosa del mondo e questo tizio parla di bagni $ 20'000 e di auto di $ 250'000, come se fosse una cosa ordinaria. Sicuro che i miliardari ci sono da per tutto. Allora?

From readers

The overall situation for the people in Central America and the Dominican Republic is characterized by high levels of poverty and a growing gap between the rich and poor — a gap that is also widening in the United States. Trade is vitally important to the development of these countries.
However, a recent joint statement of Central American and U.S. Catholic bishops observed that trade is about more than economics; it is about people's lives and livelihoods. The trade rules that make up the Central American Free Trade Agreement severely limit the ability of these countries to use the very tools that the United States used in the past (and still uses) to build and maintain our competitive economy.

Sir: Hiroshima marked the 60th anniversary of the world's first atomic bombing with condemnation of a global trend toward nuclear proliferation. The wars and atrocities the US has perpetrated and the weapons it has developed are simply horrendous. America has been an agent of death and destruction in many third world nations, almost always leaving them in far worse shape than it found them.

The U.S. is no paragon of virtue, but the funny thing is that most Americans don't realise it, or if they do, then they don't generally care much about it. They maintain a mental image of America the righteous, the virtuous, spreading peace and democracy everywhere it goes. Maybe it's because they have such a short attention span and memory. As one journalist commented, a short memory is a great boost to self-esteem. It helps when you can so easily forget the past and tune out of reality.

Letters to the Editor

Right-wing conspiracy Editor,

In advance of Bush’s announcement, Democrats said Bolton would start his new job on the wrong foot in a recess appointment. But Republicans appearing on Sunday’s news shows said Bolton is the man the White House wants and he’s the right person to represent the United States at the world body.

It’s a end-around! Just like Iraq,the Bush administration made plans for war and for Iraq’s oil before the 9/11 attacks. The Founding Fathers saw individual rights as bulwarks against government abuses. Bush and his neo-cons acts as if individual rights are barriers to public safety and Senator Harry Reid of Nevada, the Democratic leader, characterized Mr. Bush’s move as “the latest abuse of power by the Bush White House,”

President Bush and Great Britain’s Tony Blair react so angrily when someone suggests that terrorist attacks are a response to American and British foreign policy. If they are a response, then obviously the attacks are the fault of the policy-makers.
