Bits and Pieces for the Week of May 18 - 24

The Republican national party (AKA the party of the rich) is so strapped for cash for the U.S. Senate campaigns, they're starting to ask the Democratic Party to scale back their spending on Democratic senate candidates. (Mike)

I think Hillary has finally gone over the edge. Here she brags about how KARL ROVE thinks she's the stronger candidate. Hillary, if you're reading this (yeah, fat chance!) please hang it up once and for all and join the rest of us Democrats. (Mike)

Not much news was made of this from last Friday, but the P.N.A.C. website has been taken down. Jeez, the Neo-Con's can't even afford to pay that bill... they are desperate for cash! (7 of 6)

The economic future is not looking good for Europe, malls, banks, the loan indistry, the price of steel, and consumer spending. (Mike)

This economic catastrophe is actually a godsend for many Americans. (Mike)

Not all NBA players are spoiled brats. Kudos to Ira Newble, Lakers bench-warmer. (Mike)

If you haven't yet heard of "bump keys", then please consider watching this video. (Mike)

Stevia is a natural sweetener, many more times sweeter than sugar. Cargill is finally trying for FDA approval. I was extremely excited about this developement, until I read that Cargill's, "500-metric-ton stevia processing facility" will be "in Qingdao, China." This could be a life saver for many diabetics but can't they produce this in a country that doesn't have a record of tainted products? (7 of 6)
