*Dumb answers of intelligence chief <http://www.whatreallyhappened.com/>*Silvestre Reyes, the Democrat chosen to head the House of Representatives committee, was asked whether members of al-Qaeda came from the Sunni or the Shia branch of Islam. “Al-Qaeda, they have both,” he answered, adding: “Predominantly probably Shi’ite.” In fact, al-Qaeda was founded by Osama bin Laden as a Sunni organisation and views Shia Muslims as heretics.
*Olmert admet (presque) l’existence de la bombe israélienne<http://www.ledevoir.com/2006/12/13/124731.html> * Lapsus ou pas? Pour la première fois, un premier ministre israélien a laissé entendre que son pays possède l’arme nucléaire. C’est un secret de Polichinelle, mais la petite phrase d’Éhoud Olmert a suscité une certaine émotion dans son pays. À la demande des États-Unis, la position officielle de l’État hébreu a en effet toujours été de ne pas reconnaître qu’Israël est une puissance nucléaire. Ce qu’elle est pourtant depuis 1967.

*Oh come ON, now! <http://www.whatreallyhappened.com/>*
A four-year-old hugged his teachers aide and was put into in-school suspension, according to the father.
BELLMEAD- A four-year-old hugged his teachers aide and was put into in-school suspension, according to the father. But La Vega school administrators have a different story.
Damarcus Blackwell’s four-year-old son was lining-up to get on the bus after school last month, when he was accused of rubbing his face in the chest of a female employee.
The prinicipal of La Vega Primary School sent a letter to the Blackwells that said the pre-kindergartener demonstrated “inappropriate physical behavior interpreted as sexual contact and/or sexual harassment.”
Blackwell says it’s ridiculous that the aide would misread a hug from a four-year-old. Blackwell wrote to administrators demanding that the whole incident be expunged from his son’s academic file because his son is too young to know what it means to act sexually.
David Davis, the executive director of the Advocacy Center in Waco tends to agree with Blackwell. He says assuming the boy has not had sexual encounters, or been inappropriately exposed to pornography, most four-year-olds are sexually innocent.
Blackwell got a response from the La Vega administration. The sexual references on the discipline referral were removed. But the thing that makes Blackwell most upset is they told him “your request for an apology by the aide and removal of all paperwork regarding this incident is denied.” Now the young student’s file will refer to the incident as “inappropriate physical contact.” And Blackwell says he will continue to fight the district.
La Vega I.S.D. administrators told News Channel 25 they couldn’t comment on this case because of student privacy issues.
*Teacher calls Muslim student ‘terrorist'<http://www.whatreallyhappened.com/> * He said no, you’ve come into my classroom, you’ve moved desks, and that’s when he outburst (sic), said no, I don’t want to negotiate with a terrorist.
*Nativity scenes are out, carols are banned, and don’t dare wish anyone merry Christmas: the festive season, US-style<http://www.whatreallyhappened.com/> * Between craven self-censorship and government fiat, mention of Christmas has become equivalent to public farting in the United States. No hip American urbanite would be caught dead this December shouting anything more doctrinally specific than “Happy Holidays!” Meantime the American Civil Liberties Union has been suing the bejesus – whoops! – suing the pants off local authorities who sanction nativity scenes on public property. School boards across the country have banned carols such as Silent Night in holiday assemblies. Frosty the Snowman is tolerable, but the ACLU has threatened to sue a school in Colorado for permitting Jingle Bells, which makes Jewish students no longer feel welcome. In New York City, public schools, menorahs and Islamic symbols are acceptable, but not nativity scenes. Teachers in Sacramento have been forbidden to use the word Christmas in the classroom, Illinois state government employees forbidden to say “Merry Christmas” on the job.
*Group seeks probe of evangelical military video<http://www.whatreallyhappened.com/> * A watchdog group that promotes religious freedom in the U.S. military accused senior officers on Monday using their rank and influence to coerce soldiers and airmen into adopting evangelical Christianity. Such proselytizing, according to the Military Religious Freedom Foundation, has created a core of “radical” Christians within the U.S. armed forces and Pentagon who punish those who do not accept evangelical beliefs by stalling their careers.
*Trees Being Returned to SeaTac Airport <http://www.whatreallyhappened.com/> * Christmas trees are going back up at Seattle-Tacoma International Airport. Pat Davis, president of the Port of Seattle commission, which directs airport operations, said late Monday that maintenance staff would restore the 14 plastic holiday trees, festooned with red ribbons and bows, that were removed over the weekend because of a rabbi’s complaint that holiday decor did not include a menorah.
*Abduction of Women on the Rise <http://www.whatreallyhappened.com/>* “I was taken by Americans for three days recently,” Um Ahmed told IPS in Baghdad. “They told me they would rape me if I didn’t tell them where my husband was, but I really didn’t know.” She said that she was turned over to the Iraqi National Guard “who were even worse than the Americans.” Her husband eventually surrendered to the U.S. military, but she continued to be held “to apply pressure on him to confess things he never did,” she said. “They told him they would rape me right in front of him if he did not confess he was a terrorist. They forced me to watch them beat him hard until he told them what they wanted to hear.”
*C-130J: un achat controversé<http://www.ledevoir.com/2006/12/12/124687.html> * Ottawa — Le gouvernement fédéral va dépenser 4,9 milliards de dollars pour l’achat et l’entretien de 17 avions C-130J, le nouvel appareil de l’avionneur américain Lockheed Martin qui remplacera les vieux Hercules des Forces armées canadiennes. Or, cet avion a connu tellement de problèmes dans les dernières années que le Pentagone, aux États-Unis, a tenté de faire annuler le contrat d’achat passé avec Lockheed Martin.

*Dutch art company releases “dinner conversation” DVD for solo diners https://www.engadget.com/2006/12/12/dutch-art-company-releases-dinner-conversation-dvd-for-solo-di/
Filed under: Home Entertainment<http://www.engadget.com/category/homeentertainment/> <http://www.allheadlinenews.com/articles/7005787152> On the occasions that we have to cook http://www.engadget.com/2006/01/28/dinner-is-finally-served-tmios-con and eat a meal solo, we usually accompany it with a side of the internet, a DVD, or possibly, if we’re feeling really old-school, a book. But apparently, those current offerings aren’t good enough for some folks. That’s why a Dutch art company, Tilburgs CowBoys and Theater NWE Vorst, has put together a film that you can watch while having dinner this holiday season, so it won’t feel like you’re eating alone. According to *The Uber-Review*, there are six different options to choose from, ranging from “romantic evening” or “a good discussion.” We’re not really sure how lifelike a one-way dinner discussion can be, which is why we’d just as soon cuddle up with an old James Bond <http://engadget.com/tag/jamesbond> flick over a dinner-for-one, but perhaps those haven’t reached The Netherlands yet.

Date: 2006-11-10, 4:56PM EST
Girl with the bright blonde weave who works in reception- I don’t know how you got your job, you are so uneducated it makes me sick. Did you graduate grammar school? I think I would respect you more if the answer to that is no. I want to throw a rock at your face every time I walk by when you are answering the phone and you say something like “who you callin’ for?” or “he in a meetin’ right now” or my personal favorite, “who this is?” I bet the people on the other end of the phone want to throw a rock at your face too. I also can’t stand when I get message notes from you that are written like so: Mr. Smith called hes wanting to kno wen he shuld ecspect the letter of aprovle. ARE YOU KIDDING ME? It amazes me that the only two things in your job description are answering phones and taking phone messages and you can’t do either of those things!
Tall girl in design with the short brown hair- You have horrendous body odor! I’m not talking a little stench here and there I am talking everyday when you walk into the building people drop dead. I don’t know how you don’t notice it. I’m going to buy you deodorant for Christmas.
Fat woman who works in suite 19- I don’t know exactly what you do for this company, but I know far too much about your personal life. When you talk to your boyfriend on company time, please refrain from telling him it felt so good when he slipped his hard dick into your fat ass! Yea I heard that, and so does everyone else that walks by your suite when you are on the phone. It’s disgusting, and we don’t want to hear about it, so keep your voice down.
Blonde woman who works for accounting- I know that you are 30, not 25 and I also know that at the Christmas party last year you had sex with the bosses son in the broom closet and that he got you pregnant. Please don’t insult me in front of our coworkers again or I will tell everyone.
Hot girl that works in sales- When you wear that brown skirt with the white flower on the bottom and you sit down, we can all see that you don’t wear panties.
Boss’ old receptionist- My name is not, John, Jason, Jack, Jim or Jared… it’s Evan.
Middle age woman who works in reception- Your job is not that hard. You answer phones, put people on hold, and take messages. I don’t care that you were up late cleaning the house or that you sat up all night waiting for you delinquent son to get home, that does not give you a reason to get rude with a customer or walk around bitching about how your job is so stressful. Half of us come in still drunk from the night before, but we never yell at clients, bitch about our family members or say our jobs are soooo hard.
Pregnant bitch- There is only one of you, so no need for further description but let it be known that you are not the first person to ever get knocked up! You are not the first person to get heart burn, you are not the first person to get morning sickness. You are not the first person to pee their pants because the baby put too much pressure on your bladder and you certainly are not the first person who has had strange cravings for cheese and anchovies. Stop complaining about it!
Little intern girl- You are so cute with your stringy brown hair, acne and braces but your coffee skills are lacking. All I ever want is a large black coffee but you seem to thing that I would rather a low-fat latte, or a caramel machiato, or even a Chai Tea. Nope I don’t want those, I just want a damn black coffee! Also, you obviously don’t know your alphabet because my filing cabinet is a mess. F does not come after R, sweetie. Do you want to flunk the class you are doing this internship for? No? You better shape your ass up and get me the right coffee then!
Pretty girl who is head of the writing department- You are the only girl who works in this office that I can stand. You greet me every morning with a bright smile and a cheery hello. And you are so damn smart. No wonder you are 22 and head of the department that could pretty much make or break our company. One time I asked you the Circumference of the earth and you kew it! Usually I would think that is weird and dork but from you, I find it really hot. I also like that you are the only girl in the company that hasn’t slept with someone that works with us. But for the record, if you slept with me, I wouldn’t respect you any less.
Hispanic girl who works in design- You wear way too much makeup, I hate that you draw your eyebrows on, and I’m pretty sure you have an adams apple and are a man.
35 year old secretary- You have a 20 year old son, and a 15 year old son… yet you dress like you are 16. I would be embarrassed to be your children. Oh and you look really stupid when you wear that plaid school-girl skirt with the white tights and hooker boots. This is an office… not a brothel.
*German legislation would jail FPS gamers http://feeds.engadget.com/~r/weblogsinc/engadget/~3/58951382/
Filed under: Gaming http://www.engadget.com/category/gaming/ <http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/16070177/>Late last month, an 18-year-old man went on a shooting spree at his former junior high school in western Germany, killing himself and injuring 11 others. According to reports on the German news site *Tagesschau*, the man spent a fair bit of time playing “Counter-Strike,” which some say may have led to his inspiration to conduct the killing. As a result of this tragedy, two state governments in Bavaria and Lower Saxony have drafted legislation which, according to the *Financial Times*, would “subject developers, distributors and players of video games whose goal is to inflict ‘cruel violence on humans or human-looking characters’ to a fine and a maximum of one year in jail.” If the measures pass, German gamers, amateur and pro alike, will have to lay off the FPS games for quite a long while and stick to more traditional non-violent games, like, you know, “Pac-Man http://www.engadget.com/tag/pac-man
*Homeowner thrown in jail for noisy cellphone call<> * An Eastpointe Michigan woman has been thrown in jail after one of her house guests walked outside to use a cell phone. 23-year-old Carmen Granata was cited for violating the city noise ordnance and was given 30 days in county jail along with two years of probation.
*Israeli violence against children and youth in custody<http://www.whatreallyhappened.com/> * Our American tax dollars are used to support, arm, and protect a violent and criminal Israeli military and “justice” system that has institutionalized violence against women and children. Israel holds hundreds of child prisoners and had imprisoned over 2500 children since 2000.
Subject: A tout mes amis testeurs, message pour pas lacher! :-) Petit conseil pour les journées de déprime:
Lorsque ton travail t’ennuie, que tu es au bord de la dépression, que vraiment plus rien ne va comme tu le voudrais au travail, alors fais ceci:
En rentrant chez-toi : arrête-toi à la pharmacie et achète un thermomètre rectal Johnson & Johnson (seulement cette marque là). Ouvre la boîte du thermomètre rectal et lis les instructions.
Tu trouveras cette phrase quelque part:
« Chaque thermomètre rectal Johnson & Johnson a été testé personnellement à notre usine. »
Alors, maintenant, ferme les yeux et répète 5 fois à voix haute:
«Je suis heureux de ne pas travailler au contrôle de la qualité chez Johnson & Johnson. »
L’État devrait subventionner l’achat de fruits et de légumes<http://www.ledevoir.com/2006/09/23/118860.html>Afin de faire fléchir les courbes de l’obésité et des maladies du coeur au pays, les gouvernements provincial et fédéral gagneraient à adopter des politiques pour encourager davantage la consommation de fruits et légumes. Comment? En améliorant l’offre et la diversité de ces produits dans les magasins, mais aussi en mettant en place des mécanismes de subvention ou des incitations fiscales pour en réduire le prix, ont proposé hier des spécialistes de la santé publique réunis à Montréal à l’occasion d’une session de formation sur les «nouveautés en obésité» qu’a organisée la faculté de médecine de l’Université de Montréal.

Subject: Pour mon prochain vol…
Je sais pas si je peux prendre ce vol pour mon prochain voyage? ;-)
S’envoyer en l’air en avion
Le pilote d’avion d’affaires Bob Smith jouit d’un à-côté planant: aider les couples à monter au septième ciel. Au coût de 299 US, il fait grimper les tourtereaux à 5280 pieds d’altitude à bord d’un Piper Cherokee 6, muni d’un matelas.
Le vol d’une durée d’une heure, qui décolle de Carrollton en Géorgie ( www.milehighatlanta.com), attire les visiteurs d’aussi loin que New York. Âgé de 51 ans, M. Smith a répondu aux questions de *USA TODAY*.
Q : Quel type de clients attirez-vous?
R : Des couples âgés de 18 à 60 ans. J’ai reçu entre 75 et 100 couples en cinq ans, des gens venant parfois de New York ou Miami. C’est plus facile pour eux que de le faire dans les toilettes d’un 747.
Q : Est-ce que ce sont les hommes ou les femmes qui réservent?
R : Près de trois quarts des vols sont réservés par des femmes. Je crois que si un homme le propose à une femme, il a peur de lui laisser croire qu’il est un pervers. Mais si c’est la femme qui le propose, l’homme pensera qu’il s’agit d’une femme coquine.
Q : Mais votre avion est tout petit. Les gens ne sont-ils pas intimidés en votre présence?
R : Non, il y a un rideau et je porte des écouteurs. Et je pense que mes clients ne sont pas du genre pudique.
Q : Ne devez-vous pas les avertir quand l’avion atterrira?
R : Je leur donne un minuteur fixé à 50 minutes. Quand il s’arrête, ils savent qu’ils ont 10 minutes pour se rhabiller et attacher leur ceinture.
Q : Qu’est-ce que l’Administration fédérale d’aviation (FAA) pense d’un tel vol? Est-ce que vous avez dû faire face à des obstacles?
R : J’ai un permis commercial. Ce vol est classé comme touristique. Et monter au septième ciel ne contrevient pas aux règles de la FAA.
Q : Est-ce qu’il y a des gens qui s’opposent à ce que vous faites?
R : Quelques-uns sont choqués. Alors je leur dis: êtes-vous contre les hôtels qui louent des chambres aux couples? Je ne fais que leur offrir un lieu pour combler un de leurs fantasmes.
Q : Connaissez-vous quelqu’un d’autre offrant le même service?
Q : Quels clients préférez-vous? Les cadres d’entreprise ou les couples?
R : J’aime les vols d’affaires, mais j’apprécie les couples parce que je sais qu’ils éprouvent du plaisir à voler.
Q : J’imagine que vous recevez des gens mariés qui ne sont pas nécessairement avec leur conjoint?
R : Après le vol, je leur donne un certificat de membre du Club du septième ciel. Quelques couples ont déjà refusé de voir leur nom écrit sur le certificat.
Q : Est-ce que la champagne est compris dans le prix?
R : Le champagne, c’est du Cook’s ou du Freixenet. Je ne donne pas de Dom Pérignon. Les couples peuvent aussi garder les draps. Tout les clients ont droit à de nouveaux draps.

Whats the point of making this game so frustrating that people will just quit. I went into every building in knightsbridge. no master wizard. id there really no way to get game related help? why dont you have reasonably help at your website if you wont provide it any other way ??? ———————————–
Ma réponse: Dear player,
Please let me repeat myself. We do not answer gameplay-related questions because they give an unfair advantage to the players.
And again, As I said, there is a trainer in every big city and Knightsbridge is one of them. Keep looking, ask around, check the forums, do something else than asking us because we won’t answer you.
The game is not difficult and you have all the necessary tools to find what you want, but it requires that you use them, and not ask us.
Good luck and please do not reply to this petition if you still want to ask us where the trainer is.
OK THERE IS A BUG IN MY GAME SOFTWARE. NO WIZARD TRAINER EXIST ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD
*Ma réponse* Greetings,
Please keep looking, he’s around. In fact, there are many in various cities. And as specified in the last response, we do not answer gameplay-related questions, whether you write in capital letters or not.
*Ben non, ma vraie réponse:* Greetings,
Please keep looking, he’s around. In fact, there are many in various cities. And as specified in the last response, we do not answer gameplay-related questions. And also, please make sure that your CAPS lock key is not on when you write petitions.
Check that guy’s theory, it is true!
Most interesting…I was doing a little research this morning on who is a Jew and who is not.
I used google, typed in names of some famous media people followed by “Jew,” and this popped up over in the far-right screen area: http://www.google.com/explanation.html
It’s heading is “Offensive Search Results,” and under the heading is, “We’re disturbed about these results as well. Please read our note here.” So, I went to their note, where google explains that “‘Jew’ is often used in an anti-Semitic context.”
Well, by golly. Since they were so upset about the word, Jew, I figured they would be REALLY sensitive about other words such as, Nigger, Injun, Red Skin, Mick, Coon, Spic, Beaner, Turban Head, (couldn’t think of any others) and I tried all of these on google, as well.
Nope. Not one of these words stirred up any google response. They were only concerned about “Jew.”
So, remember: it’s OK to search for a Catholic, a Protestant, a Baptist or a Mormon, etc, but it is NOT OK to search for a Jew.
*Supplies of oil may be inexhaustible* ** *
By Bruce Bartlett*
On April 16, Newsday, *the Long Island newspaper, published a startling report that old oil fields in the Gulf of Mexico were somehow being refilled.* That is, new oil was being discovered in fields where it previously had not existed. Scientists, led by Mahlon Kennicutt of Texas A&M University, speculate that the new oil is surging upward from deposits well below those currently in production. “Very light oil and gas were being injected from below, even as the producing was going on,” he said. Although it is not yet known whether this is a worldwide phenomenon or commercially important, *the new discovery suggests that there may be far more oil and gas within the Earth’s core than previously thought. * ** Oil lease blunder hidden 6 years <http://www.whatreallyhappened.com/>Interior Department officials realized in 2000 that their offshore lease agreements with oil companies shortchanged American taxpayers, but they covered up their multibillion-dollar mistake for six years, an investigator said Wednesday.After combing through 11,000 e-mail messages and interviewing 29 current and former Interior Department employees, federal investigators still aren’t ready to say who they think told a staffer to omit contract language that would have forced oil companies operating in the deep waters of the Gulf of Mexico to pay billions of dollars in royalty payments as energy prices rose.
Rumsfeld Unveils New Justification For Iraq War: High Gas Prices<http://www.whatreallyhappened.com/>
Now, Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld has introduced a new rationale for the invasion of Iraq, high gas prices. From a radio interview last week:SECRETARY RUMSFELD: The fact of the matter is – if Saddam Hussein were still in power in Iraq, he would be rolling in petrol dollars. Think of the price of oil today. He would have so much money. And he would be seeing the Iranians interested in a nuclear program, he would be seeing the North Koreans developing a nuclear program, and he’d say well why shouldn’t he – and he would. So we’re fortunate that he’s gone.
Ten anti-Castro “journalists” in South Florida on US government payroll By Luciana Bohne Online Journal Contributing Writer

During the Mercosur summit in Argentina, WJAN-TV South Florida reporter, Manuel Cao, asked Cuban President Fidel Castro why his government didn’t allow a prominent doctor and dissident to leave the country. Quick as lightning, Castro shot back, “Who pays you?”
Now we find that Cao’s paymaster was the US government: he received $10,400 in payments so far this year. Cao is one among 10 South Florida journalists to have been found accepting money in exchange for touting propaganda intended to undermine the Cuban government via Radio and TV Marti (both bankrolled by the US government to the tune of $37 million to broadcast anti-Cuban propaganda from the States onto Cuban soil).
