Daily Trek -- July 26, 2008

 Just A Daily Trek and Rainbow Tour update today.

What'd I miss?

Everything you need to know to stay informed each day in 5 minutes or less!  Read your regular news and include this and you will be able to participate in most any current events discussion.
CNN dying to prove there is no enthusiasm for McCain among younger voters interviews a fake College Republican who, predictably isn't and knows of no one who is enthusiastic about McCain.  Hmmm, go figure.

"Congress gives it to you without lubrication," bumper stickers available at Power and Control.  A truer bumper sticker has never been written.

Anchorage Alaska may end up having its coldest summer on record. 

Oh dear, Bin Laden's driver was not read his rights!  Do you know anyone who cares?  By the way, he also head Bin Laden brag about the number of innocent people killed that day.

The Senate Republicans are holding the line on their promise to not allow any legislation to pass until a serious comprehensive energy bill that includes drilling can be voted on -- Harry Reid loses it under the pressure.

Energy is the top issue for voters now -- Republicans are on the right side of this one.  I really can not figure out what is wrong with the Democrats.  They either figure a bad economy helps Obama or they are such captives of Gore's Law that they can't think straight any longer.

"The bill is HR 6615. Its title is 'A bill to provide for the transport of the enemy combatants detained in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba to Washington, D.C., where the United States Supreme Court will be able to more effectively micromanage the detainees by holding them on the Supreme Court grounds, and for other purposes.'"

"...The result threatens to be the first time since at least 1950 that lawmakers will go home for the August recess without either chamber having passed a single appropriations bill.
If drilling opponents really have the better of this argument, why are they so worried about letting it come to a vote?"

Just in case they thought they could get a sweetheart deal from Obama -- I wonder why they would have thought that --  he tells them to act now and not to wait for him.

Iran has a website where they demonstrate their wonderful military technology.  Problem is that, like the time they photoshopped the missile launches, some of the planes are fake.  Worse the photoshops though, these are photos of models -- as in plastic and some glue!

Back before her deadly DDT rant that cost millions of lives from malaria, Rachel Carson had written about global warming.  Only her information showed that the changes were from ocean changes, just like the recent testimony given by NASA.

John Edwards WAS at the hotel meeting his ex staffer.

Ooow, the UN wants to take the lead on counter terrorism.  Problem is they haven't even been able to define the term terrorism.

EXPLAINING the Northern Lights.

Toyota tops manufactures on CAFE numbers.

McDonalds sued for refusing to allow womens Muslim headwear.
