There's something like 90 million Americans have used marijuana. If marijuana really led to cancer, where are the bodies?
"While suturing a laceration on the hand of an 80-year-old Texas rancher (whose hand had caught in a gate while working cattle), a doctor and the old man were talking about George W. Bush being in the White House.

The old Texan said, 'Well, ya know, Bush is a 'post turtle'.' Not knowing what the old man meant, the doctor asked him what a post turtle was.

The old man said, 'When you're driving down a country road and you come across a fence post with a turtle balanced on top, that's a post turtle.'

The old man saw a puzzled look on the doctor's face, so he continued to explain, 'You know he didn't get there by himself, he doesn't belong there, he can't get anything done while he's up there, and you just want to help the poor dumb bastard get down.'"
Atheist Presents Case for Taking God From Pledge:

"'There's a principle here,' he told the justices in his closing moments, 'and I'm hoping the court will uphold this principle so that we can finally go back and have every American want to stand up, face the flag, place their hand over their heart and pledge to one nation, indivisible, not divided by religion, with liberty and justice for all.'"

U.S. Election: The World Should Also Have a Vote

Move to the United States, become a citizen, AND then you can vote. I don't care who the president is, the UNITED STATES citizens are the ones who elect.

• Download and install the Google toolbar. Not only does it put the Google search box into your browser full-time, but it also blocks pop-up ads and fills in forms for you. For Windows at http://toolbar.google.com. (Ad blocking, form-filling and Google's search box are already built into the Apple's Web browser, Safari.)

• Phrase your question in the form of an answer. "After all, you're not looking for Web pages that ask your question," explains director of technology Craig Silverstein. "You're looking for pages that answer it."

So instead of typing, "What is the average rainfall in the Amazon basin?", you might get better results by typing "The average rainfall in the Amazon basin is."

• This is an old one, but very important: Put quotes around phrases that must be searched together. If you put quotes around "electric curtains," Google won't waste your time finding one set of Web pages containing the word "electric" and another set containing the word "curtains."

• Similarly, put a hyphen right before any word you want screened out. If you're looking up dolphins, for example, you'll have to wade through a million Miami Dolphins pages unless you search for "dolphins -Miami."

• Google is a global White Pages and Yellow Pages. Search for "phonebook:home depot norwalk, ct," Google instantly produces the address and phone number of the Norwalk Home Depot. This works with names ("phonebook:robert jones las vegas, NV") as well as businesses.

Don't put any space after "phonebook." And in all of the following examples, don't type the quotes I'm showing you here.

• Google is a package tracker. Type a FedEx or UPS package number (just the digits); when you click Search, Google offers a link to its tracking information.

• Google is a calculator. Type in an equation ("32+2345*3-234="). Click Search to see the answer.

• Google is a units-of-measurement converter. Type "teaspoons in a gallon," for example, or "centimeters in a foot." Click Search to see the answer.

• Google is a stock ticker. Type in AAPL or MSFT, for example, to see a link to the current Apple or Microsoft stock price, graphs, financial news and so on.

• Google is an atlas. Type in an area code, like 212, to see a Mapquest map of the area.

• Google is Wal-Mart's computer. Type in a UPC bar code number, such as "036000250015," to see the description of the product you've just "scanned in." (Thanks to the Google Blog, http://google.blogspace.com, for this tip and the next couple.)

• Google is an aviation buff. Type in a flight number like "United 22" for a link to a map of that flight's progress in the air. Or type in the tail number you see on an airplane for the full registration form for that plane.

• Google is the Department of Motor Vehicles. Type in a VIN (vehicle identification number, which is etched onto a plate, usually on the door frame, of every car), like "JH4NA1157MT001832," to find out the car's year, make and model.

• For hours of rainy-day entertainment, visit http://labs.google.com. Here, you'll find links to new, half-finished Google experiments-like Google Voice, in which you call (650) 623-6706, speak the words you want to search for and then open your browser to view the results. Disclaimer: It wasn't working when I tried it. (Ditto a lot of these experiments.)

• Poke around the "Services & Tools" link on the Google.com home page and you'll find some of the better-known lesser-known Google features, if that makes any sense.

I Like my Bombs in Afghanistan not Iraq

Note the standard sarcasm spewing from my mouth to my fingertips. Jeebus H. Chrysanthemum!!! Are the Afghanis forgotten about already?
Words From Jimmy Carter:

"Carter is the only modern US President not to have officially sent forces into combat, with the exception of the failed mission in 1980 to try to rescue American hostages in Iran. Yet another lesson from The Hornet's War, he suggested, was for those who ordered troops into battle to remember the horrors of warfare.
'One premise of my life in public service is that we should use the tremendous power and prestige and military status and economic influence to pursue the interests of our country but pursuing them wherever possible through peaceful means, and not to resort to wars."
Compares the Bush Adminstration v. Clinton Administration.

I'm not advocating either president. Just the facts. Vote Smart.

Kerry and Me: We Need More Than a New President. We Need a New Direction:
"John Kerry missed the votes last September" Why exactly is he missing these important votes? Shouldn't an elected member of the Senate be there for any and all votes, unless it is deemed that it in no way affects the Lives of any Americans?
The reference is in the 2nd to last paragraph.
A Different W: Move Over NASCAR Dads, the Sex And The City Crowd Could Turn the Election

I find it sad that the media continually reduces themselves into calling us, the voters, by the very stereotypes they and most people decry. Also, I believe this is the same Martha Burk who put up a big brouhaha last year over Augusta and The Masters. The Masters is about the mystique and CBS. Why do you want to play that course? Why is there always something to prove?
"I think it's pretty ridiculous this President has a no protest zone around him the whole time."adds Amanda Blake.
Brad Pitt's New Movie Troy looks pretty damn intense. Helen is a looker.
