Sunday blognews

First, via Odub, Benny Hinn's wife tells you about the God's colonic, the Holy Ghost Enema. Amen.

The rest via BuzzFlash,

Mahablog does great footwork on the claim by the right wing bloggers that Air America Radio (AAR) stole money from a charity. It comes down to a single source item from a news source that may or may not exist. Looking deeper, you find that the company that once owned AAR may have mishandled some money. The post at Mahablog is long, but a very worthwhile piece of reading.

From WaPo, news that Congress will be allowing bomb grade Uranium sales.

A provision tucked into the 1,724-page energy bill that Congress is poised to enact today would ease export restrictions on bomb-grade uranium, a lucrative victory for a Canadian medical manufacturer and its well-wired Washington lobbyists.

The Burr Amendment -- named for its sponsor, Sen. Richard Burr (R-N.C.) -- would reverse a 13-year-old U.S. policy banning exports of weapons-grade uranium unless the recipients agree to start converting their reactors to use less-dangerous uranium. The Senate rejected the measure last month after critics in both parties warned that it would accelerate the worldwide proliferation of nuclear materials, but a House-Senate conference committee agreed this week to include it in the final bill.

Lobbyists making America safer for Nukes. Gotta love it. Idiots.

Also from WaPo, the US has been kicked out of Uzbekistan. Not we have decided to vacate the land of a repressive regime that is known for boiling people alive as a form of torture, but they kicked us out.

Don't they know that if you are a US friendly dictator, and turn on the US, you will be invaded and deposed? Just ask Saddam or Noriega...

Have you ever been told that Halliburton isn't doing well with it's business in Iraq? This usually something you are told if you accuse Halliburton of war profiteering. Apparently, business is looking better...
