http://www.staradvertiser.com/news/breaking/131499778.html

Former Gov. Linda Lingle is expected to announce as soon as Tuesday that she will run in the Republican primary for U.S. Senate, sources say.

Lingle is scheduled to speak at a noon luncheon of the Sales and Marketing Executives International at the Pacific Club. The topic is how decisions made in Washington, D.C., can affect local businesses and the community.

U.S. Rep. Mazie Hirono, D-Hawaii, and former U.S. Rep. Ed Case are the Democratic contenders to replace U.S. Sen. Daniel Akaka, D-Hawaii, who is not seeking another term next year.

Breaking: Ferraro steps down
Posted: 05:05 PM ET
(CNN) Geraldine Ferraro has stepped down from her role as a member of Hillary Clinton's finance committee.

In a letter to Clinton obtained by CNN's Suzanne Malveaux, Ferraro said she is stepping down so, "I can speak for myself and you can continue to speak for yourself about what is at stake in this campaign."

Full letter:

Dear Hillary

I am stepping down from your finance committee so I can speak for myself and you can continue to speak for yourself about what is at stake in this campaign.

The Obama campaign is attacking me to hurt you.

I won't let that happen.

Thank you for everything you have done and continue to do to make this a better world for my children and grandchildren.

You have my deep admiration and respect.

Gerry

So if race seemed to play a role in Ohio, does that mean it goes republican if Obama is the nominee?

What is an independent?

If an independent usually vote democratic does that make them a democrat?

If an independent usually vote republican does that make them a republican?

The US complains if embassy staff don't pay parking fines in NY, yet the US embassy refuses to pay it's congestion charges in London - they total 1.4million.
The UK pays all parking/road tolls in the US.

Why won't you guys pay up?

OK i'm totally thick but how do you post pictures, I get the image tag thingy but it always appears as a red cross.

I uploaded 2 pictures to the gallery section, and have copied/pasted the image in between the tags = red cross.

What am I doing wrong?
I'll need this explaining in language a thick idiot can understand!

thanks

When the USSR dissolved, Russia became the represenatative to get the veto.

If the UK breaks up which nation would get the UN security council permanent seat and more importantly, veto?
Why? Why not?

Romania and Bulgaria entered too quickly. I support moves for Iceland, Croatia and Turkey to join next wave.

And Scotland, should we become independent.

Amen to that!
23  General Politics / International General Discussion / Re: Next Wave of EU Expansion on: March 02, 2008, 07:50:51 am
I think Turkish membership in the EU would be of immediate and immense benefit to both democracy and secularism in Turkey and therefore have no qualms whatsoever with admitting it more or less as is. Same goes for corruption problems in Ukraine.
My own experience indicates that corruption actually increases after admission in the EU. And if Turkey is admitted unreformed, the anti-democratic forces will become entrenched and reforms will be far less likely.




Countries that wish to join the EU must address human rights.
In the last wave of entrants, some have still yet to implement human rights, this is not acceptable, you must meet the criteria before you join, simply saying, we will meet them if you let us join first, is not good enough.

Iceland is the only country that meets my criteria at the moment, but i'd like to see all Europeam countries joining, and having a system similar to the US.
Which countries admitted recently have yet to implement human rights?


http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Human_rights_in_Romania
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Human_rights_in_Bulgaria

Don't get me wrong, I think these countries have came a long way, but membership should be as a reward when you've finished the test. What motivation do the countries have now to address the remaining aims?

No, I'm in a part of the constituency that has always been Jarrow - but I like to think I'm doing missionary work in this part of the world!
