Front Page: PA Votes on Earth Day, 35 MPG by 2020, Chemical Ali, Tainted Heparin

  • PA Votes on Earth Day: On this Earth Day, Pennsylvania voters head to the polls to award their 158 delegates. The Clinton campaign let loose at the last minute, running an ad featuring shots of historic world events such as Pearl Harbour and the fall of the Berlin Wall, with clips of al-Qaeda leader Osama Bin Laden and Hurricane Katrina victims and the concluding line, "you need to be ready for anything." The Obama campaign said of the move, "we already have a president who plays the politics of fear, and we don't need another." The Clinton campaign defended the ad saying, "we're at a moment where we need a president who's got the strength and knowledge to take on very tough challenges." We'll be checking in with the situation in Pennsylvania throughout the day and have results here tonight!
  • 35 MPG by 2020: Federal regulators are expected to unveil a shorter schedule for auto companies working toward a fuel-efficiency goal of 35 miles a gallon by 2020 for all vehicles. The industry will likely have to meet a target of 31.5 miles a gallon for Corporate Average Fuel Economy, or CAFE, by 2015, according to insiders. An environmental consultant thinks that the short-term target for CAFE was likely to be 31.5 miles a gallon by 2015 saying, “they will be implementing roughly two-thirds of the improvements in oil use and emissions in half the time."
  • Chemical Ali: Saddam Hussein’s cousin Ali Hassan al-Majid, who is also known as Chemical Ali, has been taken to an American military hospital. He apparently suffered a heart attack while in custody awaiting execution. Chemical Ali was among three of Hussein’s lieutenants sentenced to death by an Iraqi court last June after being found guilty of using poisonous gas against Kurds in northern Iraq in the 1980s.
  • Tainted Heparin: A contaminated blood thinner (Heparin) from China has been found in drug supplies in 11 countries. US Federal officials said yesterday they had discovered a clear link between the contaminant and severe reactions now associated with 81 deaths in the United States. Response from the Chinese embassy says that because illnesses associated with contaminated heparin had occurred only in the United States, it suggests that the problem arose once the medication arrived in the US.

I'm waiting for the results of the PA vote. I hope Hillary wins. McCain can beat her because so many reasonable people don't want to see another Clinton in the White House and will hold their noses and vote for 'that Republican guy.'My car gets 39.99 mpg NOW. Car manufacturers could tweak the computers NOW and get us 80 miles per gallon. The problem is that they have a VERY INFLUENTIAL LOBBY. Voters need to kick out everyone now in Congress who adds PORK and who gets large amounts of money from Lobbyists (say over $10,000 in a term). (Yeah, I know, that would make Representatives richer than Senators.)Poor ol' Chemical Ali. I'm surprised he didn't die of a heart attack watching his brother hang.The USofA needs to quit buying ANYTHING from China. They're intentionally trying to kill us all. They know exactly where the tainted drugs and food and toys are going. They're sitting at their big boardroom table laughing over the 'stupid Americans.'

I'm beginning to think that China should maybe stop putting poison in the products they sell to help their public image.

I think "awaiting execution" doesnt meant it was happening anytime soon. I think there was some kind of a discrepancy regarding his execution and they are waiting on something.

The whole politics of fear issue is ridiculous. We are at war. There are people out there who would like to wipe this country off the face of the earth. Personally, I want a President who acknowledges that. I don't think that's the politics of fear. More like the politics of reality.

Yes they would because terrorists and crimals have rights! They are still human beings you know. We can't just let them be in pain. We have to spend more money to save them so that we don't hurt anybody's feelings. I'll make up for the not redoing the avatar with extreme sarcasim.

He had a heart attack while awaiting execution, and we took him to the hospital? Does that seem a little odd to anyone else?
