Iran's Gas Riots Are Nixon's Bush's Fault


There was more than just one station destroyed in the violence as the news reports suggested... There were several stations torched.


United States
Gas stations abandoned during the fuel crisis in the winter of 1973-74 were sometimes used for other purposes. This station at Potlatch, Washington, west of Olympia was turned into a religious meeting hall.
The 1973-1974 gas shortages in the US were mostly because OPEC members decided not to ship any petroleum to the US and some western European nations because of our support for Israel during the Yom Kippur War.
I remember some thefts, some fist fights and lotsa swearing, but for what ever reason, I do not remember rioting and gas stations being burned.

Fairness Doctrine


Sen. Durbin: 'It's time to reinstitute the Fairness Doctrine'...


Embarrassing Bush Through Illegal Immigration

I got this from 7.62mm Justice. It is important that all of us get involved.

Momentum Good for Winning on Next Amnesty Cloture Vote

I have info stating that Voinovich's office was inundated with calls, e-mails and letters opposing the immigration bill, but Voinovich either ignored it or for another reason voted Y on the cloture vote.

Lott, who I have respected in the past, has made a series of statements and taken a series of stands that have those who stood by him in the past shakeing their heads. Maybe he has gone through a Hagelilation procedure.

I am truly stunned by McConnell.

Many people believe it a waste of time for the Senate to spend time on such a loser bill. I am thinking that this is a win-win-win situation for Reid and the Demo leadership, because they get to show their "compassion", show bi-partisanship by working with Bush and, most importantly, take Bush's credibility down another notch by embarrassing him.
