Bad news for Dems

But good news for the U.S. economy...
The Commerce Department reported Wednesday that the gross domestic product, the broadest measure of economic health, grew at a 4.1 percent annual rate from July through September, the fastest pace since early 2004, even with the double bogey of Hurricanes Katrina and Rita and gas prices around $3.00 a gallon.

As usual, good news for the U.S. is usually bad news for the Liberals who would have you believe that the economy is tanking, our civil liberties are disappearing, and that everything President Bush does is evil.

Vision for Space Exploration

"...Building on the best of Apollo and shuttle technology, NASA's creating a 21st century exploration system that will be affordable, reliable, versatile, and safe.

The centerpiece of this system is a new spacecraft designed to carry four astronauts to and from the moon, support up to six crewmembers on future missions to Mars, and deliver crew and supplies to the International Space Station.

As President Bush said when he announced the Vision for Space Exploration, "Humans are headed into the cosmos." Now we know how we'll get there."
More information about the new exploration system can be found at the NASA website.

Patriot Act extension - 1 month

The House passed a one-month extension of the Patriot Act on Thursday and sent it to the Senate for final action as responsible members of Congress worked to prevent expiration of anti-terror law enforcement provisions on Dec. 31.

The House rejected the 6 month extension passed last night by the Senate, probably because of the obvious timing to avoid responsibility during the upcoming election.

If the Dems think the Patriot Act is so horrible, why would they accept 6 months more of the same thing they originally supported? Dems play both sides, and both sides against the other to block and impede the working of this government.

Senate meets tonight, and the one month extension will likely pass. They'll have to go back at it in January and be on record for any vote they make before the elections.
