Every single post of hers links to that video site.

Driving traffic that way, perhaps?

How is that SPAM?

A fixation, perhaps, but harmless.

Or maybe she works for them....

and is driving traffic to the site? That's how SPAM works some times.

Call it a suspicion. I've asked, but she never replies. Another indicator.

In my Dutch paper I read ...
by Kees Bakker / September 19, 2008 5:58 PM PDT

that Obama (Dem) supports the current approach from Paulsen (R) and Bernicke, while McCain (R) rejects it.
If that's true, aren't it strange times?

Can you expand on that a bit?
by EdHannigan / September 19, 2008 9:16 PM PDT

Not sure what it means.

Is this the same newspaper that thinks Sarah Palin believes dinosaurs lived at the same time as humans? I have to wonder about the Dutch press.

No, it was another paper.
by Kees Bakker / September 19, 2008 10:04 PM PDT

I'll try a translation:

John McCain thinks the Fed should stop saving big financial institutions. "The Fed should concentrate on its essential tasks, which is managing the supply of money and the inflation in a responsible way".

No need for you of course to google my short translation to find the full original text (if he published it). Sorry for that.

Do you think this is a fair rendering of his position? And do you agree with it?

Obama supports the current policy of the Fed [Bernanke] and the Treasury [Paulson].

Do you think that's a fair rendering of his position? And do you agree with it?

These positions are more or less opposite. So I don't think you can agree with both.

In general, I think McCain is right, of course...
by EdHannigan / September 19, 2008 10:16 PM PDT

In the current crisis governmental intervention was probably the only way to go. Doesn't make it right though.

You didn't provide a link to what McCain said, so I can't comment further. What you wrote in the original post seems kind of vague and off the mark.

Ok, I'm guessing you believe in Evolution, the Tooth Fairy,
by peddlerreed / September 20, 2008 9:02 AM PDT

Santa Claus, and Gay Rights. I will personally give you $5000 if you can show any proof... Anything that shows proof of Evolution. I can show you Human footprints walking next to and in the same print as what you call Dinosaurs. That word, by the way wasn't in our Dictionary until 1841. It means Big Lizard. Look up all you can on Dragons, and find out what they were before then. DNA proves that we didn't evolve from Chimps. Wake up and smell the science. Write to me if you want to know more.

The Samsung RF23M8090SG

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
