  • Subsidizing illegal immigration - American citizens & citizens who have legally immigrated will pay 3 times more for an education under a new law!
  • THIS year, nearly7,500 qualified California residents -- who would otherwise be entering California state universities as incoming freshmen -- are likely to be turned away for lack of funds. Meanwhile, approximately7,500 illegal immigrants will receive heavily subsidized university educations at a cost of between $45 million and $65 million annually at those same universities-Under this bizarre law, American citizens from other states pay more than three times as much as illegal aliens to attend California schools. An American citizen who moves to California from Arizona will pay $12,946 to attend the California State University. While she is waiting tables to pay her tuition costs, her taxes will be used to subsidize illegal immigrants who are paying only $2,776 to attend the same school...

    Who killed Berg? 

    Amazing, chairs at Abu Abu Ghraib prison and the 'stage' of Nick Berg's execution are exactly the same. Berg worked at the Abu Ghraib shortly before his 'disappearance'.
  • MSNBC: During his time in Iraq, he struggled with the Arabic language and worked at night on a tower in Abu Ghraib, a site of repeated attacks on U.S. convoys and the location of the notorious prison where U.S. soldiers abused Iraqi inmates.

  • It's the same chair. Look at this pic that was released today of the latest prisoner abuse at Abu Ghraib prison. Notice the white chair in the lower left corner. Now - look at the chair Nicholas Berg is sitting in!!

  • Soul Plane - There are two schools of thought involved when trying to analyze a movie like Soul Plane - either you can see it as an hour and a half diversion of mindless laughs, or you can see it as the worst possible personification of what Hollywood thinks of Black people and what they'll pay to see. Naturally, being the Hata I am, I tend to lean towards the latter. It's hard not to, considering that this movie has about every possible stereotype of blacks out there covered.
  • Do yourself a favor and send Hollywood a message at the same time. Miss this flight.

  • Site R - Raven Rock - 6 Miles to Camp David
  • Site R - Raven Rock - 6 Miles to Camp David

  • Alternate Joint Communications Center (AJCC)

There's a warning sign for the cable near a rear gate of Site R at the top of the red line
