Still waiting for the costs to society and who loses jobs........
As an aside- temperatures can fluctuate 40 degrees in one day and they are talking about a 1 degree change in 50 -100 years? We're lucky we can get accurate forecasts for one week let alone 50 years down the road......but the drum beat continues .......
"Gun crime has doubled since they were introduced. Young hoodlums are able to acquire handguns - either replica weapons that have been converted, or imports from eastern Europe - with ease. With no dedicated frontier police, our borders remain hopelessly porous. The only people currently incommoded by the firearms laws are legitimate holders of shotgun licences, who are subjected to the most onerous police checks.
Even more disturbing is the insouciance with which guns are used. An 18-year-old Angolan refugee was sentenced to life this week for shooting dead a woman holding a baby at a christening party, in what was otherwise a "routine" robbery."
Seems like they are back in the empire building business with taxpayers' money.There are plenty of constructive places to spend those millions- if they are so flush with funds, maybe they can give the money to the ER's or fix the roads or clean the graffiti off every street corner or protect the public or protect seniors from being booted from their homes because of high property taxes( How's that "Study" coming along on property taxes?)....
"Democrats are betting everything on President Bush losing in Iraq — a disgrace in itself. But if they lose instead, they'll find themselves a
one-issue party, thoroughly discredited, with nothing to fall back on."
