Colorado Democrats To Diane Feinstein: No Gitmo terrorists in our state thank you very much.

Colorado’s tandem of rookie Democratic senators aren’t exactly embracing Sen. Dianne Feinstein’s suggestion that Gitmo detainees be shipped to a Supemax federal prison in Florence, Colo. Michael Bennet: “I strongly support the Senate’s decision to withhold funding for the transfer of the detainees until the Administration comes up with a plan for the closure of the Guantanamo Bay detention facility.

A Saturn dealership co-owned by former Detroit Piston Bob Sura has launched the first of an expected flood of lawsuits against General Motors Corp., arguing the automaker’s plan to eliminate the brand rendered his franchise “worthless.” The lawsuit, filed Friday in U.S. District Court in Florida, accuses GM of violating state franchise laws and stripping Saturn of any value by announcing the brand will be sold or eliminated later this year.

$50K reward offered for mysteriously missing computer hard drive containing Clinton presidential era information. I doubt Hillary needs the money that bad so we’ll probably never see the thing again.

The U.S. National Archives on Wednesday said it is offering a $50,000 reward for information leading to the recovery of a missing hard drive that contains personal information of former Clinton administration staff and visitors. The small portable hard drive was being kept as a backup, the National Archives explained in a question-and-answer document (PDF) on its Web site.

Look! The good little new Democrat Arlen Specter has Liar Pelosi’s back, claims CIA often misleading with information provided to Congress.

Sen. Arlen Specter (D-Pa.) took the opportunity Wednesday to defend House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), who has come under fire in recent weeks over a controversy surrounding when she was told of the use of enhanced interrogation techniques being used by the CIA. “The CIA has a very bad record when it comes to — I was about to say ‘candid’; that’s too mild — to honesty,” Specter, a former chairman of the Senate Intelligence Committee, said in a lunch address to the American Law Institute.

This kind of political correctness can literally make you sick to your stomach.

Get out your bleach and launder those reusable fabric grocery bags after each use. You’re not clogging up landfill with plastic throw-aways, but your environmental conscientiousness could make you sick.

Check it out, here’s yet another group that WASN’T on any of Napolitano’s terrorist threat memos.

The FBI is advising law enforcement officers across the country that a Texas cell of Los Zetas — an increasingly powerful arm of the Mexican Gulf Cartel drug trafficking syndicate — has acquired a secluded ranch where it trains its members to “neutralize” competitors in the United States. In order to ensure its share of the lucrative illegal drug trade, the cartel’s members reportedly are operating north of the border to collect debts and spy on competitors.

Bank muffs money transfer, gives couple $10 million instead of $10,000. The folks haven’t been seen since the screw up.

Democrat Senator slams brakes on bill honoring Ronald Reagan’s 100th birthday.

Republicans are trying to pass legislation in the next few weeks to kick off the commemoration of the 100th anniversary of Ronald Reagan’s birth, and the only hurdle appears to be Sen. Russ Feingold (D-Wis.), who is refusing to let the Senate vote on the bill. Feingold’s decision to block passage of a bipartisan commission to celebrate the former president’s 100th birthday has nothing to do with antagonism toward the conservative icon. But he does want to use the momentum behind the bill to drive legislation of his own.

Obama increasingly distressed over the continuing stream of stupid spilling from the mouth of the idiot he chose for vice president.

President Obama is so “distracted by his vice president’s indiscipline” that he has been forced to rebuke privately Vice President Joe Biden, according to a new book by Newsweek journalist Richard Wolffe, who interviewed Obama a dozen times. “He can’t keep his mouth shut,” Wolffe quotes a “senior Obama aide” as saying of the gaffe-prone Biden in “Renegade: The Making of a President,” set for release June 2.

Democrats on their knees begging for Obama to bail out minority owned broadcasting companies. If people aren’t listening or watching now there is a reason for it so these funds, if when provided will be nothing but more spreading the wealth around.

High-ranking House Democrats are urging the Treasury Department to prop up minority-owned broadcasters suffering from a lack of capital and lost advertising revenue amid the economic slump. House Majority Whip James Clyburn (D-S.C.) is leading an effort to convince Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner to take “decisive action” by extending credit to this sector of the broadcasting industry.

Sad news. The U.K. sets record for number of women having multiple abortions. There has got to be a better way to not have babies than using this procedure as a method of “contraception.”

Repeat abortions have reached a record high, figures released today reveal. One third of women who had an abortion last year were on their second, third or even eighth termination, new figures show. The statistics will fuel the debate over whether some women are using abortion as a form of contraception.

Where is PETA when you really need them? Wind farm “noises” are killing goats in Taiwan.
