Poll Shows Liberal Ideas Gaining With Young People

NY Times
Excerpt:
Young Americans are more likely than the general public to favor a government-run universal health care insurance system, an open-door policy on immigration and the legalization of gay marriage, according to a New York Times/CBS News/MTV poll. The poll also found that they are more likely to say the war in Iraq is heading to a successful conclusion.

In a snapshot of a group whose energy and idealism have always been as alluring to politicians as its scattered focus and shifting interests have been frustrating, the poll found that substantially more Americans between the ages of 17 and 29 than four years ago are paying attention to the presidential race. But they appeared to be really familiar with only two of the candidates, Senators Barack Obama and Hillary Rodham Clinton, both Democrats.

They have continued a long-term drift away from the Republican Party, and although they are just as worried as the general population about the outlook for the country and think their generation is likely to be worse off than that of their parents, they retain a belief that their votes can make a difference, the poll found.

Have your read the 4 part series by the Washington Post on Dick Cheney. if not here it is.

Angler: The Vice Presidency of Dick Cheney

Washington Post
Excerpt:
In Oregon, a battleground state that the Bush-Cheney ticket had lost by less than half of 1 percent, drought-stricken farmers and ranchers were about to be cut off from the irrigation water that kept their cropland and pastures green. Federal biologists said the Endangered Species Act left the government no choice: The survival of two imperiled species of fish was at stake.

Law and science seemed to be on the side of the fish. Then the vice president stepped in.

First Cheney looked for a way around the law, aides said. Next he set in motion a process to challenge the science protecting the fish, according to a former Oregon congressman who lobbied for the farmers.

Because of Cheney’s intervention, the government reversed itself and let the water flow in time to save the 2002 growing season, declaring that there was no threat to the fish. What followed was the largest fish kill the West had ever seen, with tens of thousands of salmon rotting on the banks of the Klamath River.

Characteristically, Cheney left no tracks.


Elizabeth Edwards Bitch Slaps Ann Coulter on National TV

Posted in H.L. News, Main Blog (All Posts) on June 27th, 2007 6:06 am by HL

Coulter is clearly flustered when she gets called on her hate speech. Watch her squirm as Edwards takes her down. Why this bitch is even on TV anymore with her Republicans approval ratings lower then pond scum just proves once and for all that the Conservative Republican media whores are alive and well, and will never report what is really going on regarding the mood of the country. No one wants to hear this piece of s**t anymore. I considered not putting it up here just to not give her more publicity, but readers of this site are not going to start becoming Ann fans anyway.

Here is a video of Coulter wishing John Edwards would die in a terrorist attack.

List of people convicted in Abramoff scandal so far

Mathaba.net
Excerpt:
Former Deputy Interior Secretary Steven Griles, the highest-ranking Bush administration official convicted in the scandal, was sentenced to 10 months in prison for lying to senators. He pleaded guilty to obstructing a congressional investigation. He admitted lying to a Senate committee about his relationship with Abramoff, who repeatedly sought Griles’ intervention at Interior on behalf of Indian tribal clients.

-Former Rep. Bob Ney, R-Ohio, sentenced in January to 2 1/2 years in prison, acknowledged taking bribes from Abramoff. Ney was in the traveling party on an Abramoff-sponsored golfing trip to Scotland at the heart of the case against former White House official David Safavian.

-Abramoff is serving six years in prison on a criminal case out of Florida, where he pleaded guilty in January 2006 to charges of conspiracy, honest services fraud and tax evasion. He has not yet been sentenced on charges of mail fraud, conspiracy and tax evasion stemming from the influence-peddling scandal in Washington. Abramoff is cooperating in a bribery investigation involving lawmakers, their aides and members of the Bush administration.


CNN Showing Their True Priorities Cancels Michael Moore for Paris Hilton

Posted in H.L. News, Main Blog (All Posts) on June 27th, 2007 5:54 am by HL

CNN, The Cable News Network should change their names to CCNN, Celebrity Cable News Network. That is because they have decided to dump Michael Moore who was supposed to be on Larry King Live to talk about his new movie Sicko. Instead they are going to have a much more important story, far more important then people dying every day because they have no health insurance. They got the first Paris Hilton Interview since her release from jail this morning. CNN is the biggest whore network ever. Anyone who watches that piece of crap to get hard news, is wasting their time. Hey CNN I hear that Lindsay Lohan had decided to stay longer at rehab then originally planned. Maybe you should do a week long retrospective. Next time Britney Spears shaves her head you should cancel all commercials and do a full day devoted to Britney. Screw television, keep it here on the HL for all the important stories.
