“I certainly am rallying around her. We need to get on with the business of the country,” says Rep. Marcy Kaptur (D) of Ohio, who has been an outspoken opponent of Pelosi. “The reaction I’m hearing from people in my district is: What’s wrong with Washington?

The contrast between the haves and have nots is big around the world. I just spent a week in Manila , then a week in rural Philippines. There are a couple of huge 5 story malls there in the city, then outside there are dirty children begging- there is no welfare system. It wasn't as bad as the slumdog movie , but the contrast is big. The prices are close to ours, food is cheaper, goods are higher. The wages are very low, a store clerk makes around 300-350 $ U.S. equivalent per month.

Wow , Chris , Asia does give a different perspective. You have been here too.
The filipina people are America in the 1960's and before. They still neighbor easily, have community -sharing meals house to house , old values ( the ones we used to like to have in America) .

It is holy week , businesses closing, people taking time for God.
I was outside around 9:00 p.m. tonight star gazing when I observed a very bright light crossing the sky from west to east. I thought maybe it was a satellite but it appeared brighter and larger then satellite sightings I have observed in the past. There were no blinking lights an airplane would display and the orbit was much too high.
To get a glaring glimpse of the increasingly murderous hatred, bigotry and disgusting bias against Jews and Israelis regarding the biblical city of Jerusalem (the fact Jerusalem is mentioned over 600 times in the Jewish Bible and not even once in the Koran speaks volumes), woeful ignorance at best, read this putrid portion of the EUOBSERVER document on Jerusalem:

I was near the airport for lunch today and looked up to see a Northwest 747 flying overhead - headed for a landing. I looked on "Flightaware" because I thought they were only landing them on the weekends, and it said it was a flight from Tokyo, Japan.
I am curious if anyone knows anything about this?
