Voters have no right to decide how much money should go to the poor, a San Francisco judge ruled Thursday in tossing out a divisive homeless-aid reform measure approved in November
Wow. San Francisco is going to implode. hell, I might just have to take a vaction up there and apply for the free 400$ a month the city of SF is handing out to anyone. Nothing like getting paid to be a bum.
Earth to be destroyed next thrusday.
The defining moment of weirdness in the story of the Pana Wave Laboratory, the white-clad doomsday cult roaming the mountains of central Japan, arguably came this week, when the group's guru gave a rare interview.
Sixty-nine-year-old Yuko Chino, believed to have terminal cancer, told a Japanese TV crew - forced to wear the cult's white garb - that she would be dead within days.
"But that's nothing as important as Tama-chan," she said. "We've been feeding him every day since last summer."
Tama-chan is a bearded seal normally found in Arctic waters. It turned up in Yokohama's murky river system in August and was duly celebrated as an urban miracle. If Japan wasn't already unsettled by Pana Wave, this connection with a much-loved, cute national icon did the job.
Seriously, you cant make this stuff up. God seals, communist mind rays, the end of the earth. Yay for Japan!

House Passes $550 Billion Tax Cut
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The Republican-led U.S. House of Representatives on Friday approved a $550 billion tax cut package that scales down President Bush's proposed dividend tax cut which Democrats said would favor the wealthy and add to the nation's debt.
A majority of the House voted for the package which must be reconciled with a different version pending in the Senate. The House bill would slash the top tax on dividends and capital gains to 15 percent
those evil doers, with their money!
$2 trillion fine for Microsoft security snafu?
Microsoft's latest security lapse with its Passport information service could trigger a $2.2 trillion fine on the company courtesy of the US government.
Microsoft on Thursday admitted that a flaw in the password reset tool of its Passport service could compromise the information stored on all 200 million users. It scampered to post a fix and is looking into potential exploits, but the damage to Microsoft may already have been done.
The Federal Trade Commission last year demanded that Microsoft improve its Passport security or face stiff fines of up to $11,000 per violation. Redmond promised to work harder to protect consumer information and launched it's Trustworthy Computing initiative to put regulators' minds at ease.
I hope this bite in microsoft's ass encourages them to make more secure products.
Neil Stephenson's next book in the Baroque Cycle, Quicksilver, now has a publishing date of the 23rd of September, 2003
Neil Stephenson is perhaps my favorite modern writer. Many a night were spent my me sipping coffie at carrow's with his last three books, the last of which, cryptonomicon, was 900 pages of fun, and i've waited eagerly for four years for this next chapter in the story.. The diamond age, Cryptonomicon, and Snow Crash will always be some of my favorite realities in my head, and it looks like Quicksilver is on its way to being up there with another favorite memory of a reality I never lived.
I cant wait. :)
The Ideological Reconstruction of Iraq
"The plight of the Middle East is not an accident. It is born of and reinforced by certain ideas: the precepts of Islam, which subordinate reason to faith and the individual to the collective.
Since the 9th century the Arab world has translated about 100,000 books from other languages--slightly fewer than are translated into Spanish in a single year. The result: in 1999 the combined Gross Domestic Product of all Arab countries, even counting the vast wealth generated by oil, was $531 billion--slightly less than the wealth generated by Spain alone."
Really good article over at capitalist magazine about the problem of the middle east- its not american imperialisim, or the jews, or anything else but Islam.

Skank traitor, Madonna.

Cats 'farmed for skins in EU'
BBC News has seen evidence which suggests that cats are being farmed for their skins in the European Union.
It is thought that tens of thousands, possibly hundreds of thousands of cat and dog skins are traded in Europe each year.
WTF is wrong with Eurpoeans? This just made my skin crawl. Cats and Dogs are our pets, our freinds and companions. I can understand China doing this kind of crap, but come on, Europeans? I am sooo eternially gratefull for the members of my family that fled europe and came over here over the last couple of hundred years.

A Christian preacher in the northern Nigeria city of Kano and six members of his family died in a house fire on April 22. Christian leaders in the city believe Muslim militants deliberately set the fatal blaze.
Pastor Sunday Madumere and his family were asleep in the early hours of the morning when flames engulfed their home, located on Apple Avenue in an area of Kano known as "no-man's land."
Eyewitnesses said the pastor's wife and three children died with him in the inferno, along with two men believed to be his relatives.
Judge links Saddam
to Osama bin Laden
Families of Sept. 11 victims awarded $104 million judgment against them
A link between ousted Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein and terror chief Osama bin Laden has been drawn in a United States federal court, backing part of the rationale behind the coalition's war in Iraq.
The Associated Press reports a federal judge awarded families of two victims of the Sept. 11 terror attacks nearly $104 million in damages against Saddam Hussein and his Iraqi government along with Osama bin Laden and the Taliban.
In the closely watched case, Judge Harold Baer ruled the plaintiffs had shown that Iraq provided material support to bin Laden and his al-Qaida terror network.
Lawyers say: burglars need protection from householders.
"FURY erupted last night after David Blunkett’s lawyers said burglars need protection from householders.
They insist villains deserve to be treated like any member of the public — and MUST be able to sue homeowners who attack them during a break-in.
The Home Secretary’s lawyers will make their bizarre argument to High Court judges today in a legal bid to block a parole claim by jailed farmer Tony Martin.
My god there are some seriously deranged lawyers out there. Thankfully this isn't being suggessted here, it's yet another step towards insanity that the brits are having to deal with.

Official: U.S. May Have Iraqi Mobile Weapons Lab
"We have something that is interesting and we continue to look at it," the official told Reuters. "Preliminary indications are that it perhaps was part of a mobile chem-bio arms system."
France helped Iraqis escape
The French government secretly supplied fleeing Iraqi officials with passports in Syria that allowed them to escape to Europe, The Washington Times has learned.
An unknown number of Iraqis who worked for Saddam Hussein's government were given passports by French officials in Syria, U.S. intelligence officials said.
Who do you call when you need a good, deep backstabing? Why the french of course. One of these days im going to buy a rifle and take over france, give it to spain and britan. Shouldnt take me more than a few weeks, resistance should be light.
Hussein's Son Took $1 Billion Just Before War, Bank Aide Says
The sheer volume of the cash was so great — some $900 million in American $100 bills and as much as $100 million worth of euros — that three tractor-trailers were needed to cart it off, the Iraqi official said. It took a team of workers two hours to load up the cash. Their work was completed before employees of the downtown Baghdad bank arrived for work.

North Korea has 100 N-weapons aimed at US, propagandist claims
SYDNEY (AFP) - North Korea (news - web sites) has at least 100 nuclear missiles aimed at the United States and will use them if new economic sanctions are imposed against it, a propagandist for the Stalinist state claimed.
Kim Myong Chol, who styles himself executive director of the Centre for Korea-American Peace, told Australia's Channel Nine network Sunday: "It's quite obvious North Korea may have minimum 100 nuclear warheads, maximum 300.
Baghdad tried to bribe
Scott Ritter with gold
Scott Ritter, the former U.N. weapons inspector who was arrested for reportedly seeking sex from teen-age girls he met online, was targeted for bribery with gold by Iraq, reports the London Telegraph.
Suprise, suprise suprise.
"The remains of bodies lie wrapped in white sheets at the site of a mass grave that was uncovered 12 miles north of Najaf, May 4, 2003. At a farmland site near the Shi'ite Muslim holy city of Najaf, Iraqis clawed through earth to uncover scores of bodies, some with blindfolds and hands tied, of men and women apparently executed during a 1991 Shi'ite uprising. (Kieran Doherty/Reuters) "
Woah there, stop the presses, where are the mass protests, the demonstrations, the left wing outrage?
There is none, because each one who complained, threw tantrums, made whitty comments in protests around the globe all supported the mass graves, the murders, the rapes.
War on the former saddam regeme was the most humane thing ever done to iraqi citizens. Each of you that claimed peace under a dictator was preferable to freedom are no better than the men who inflicted these atrocities.
