He was the president of Capital Cities/ABC from 1994-1999, has been the president of the Walt Disney Company since January 2000 and CEO since October 2005."

  2. Feel so bad for the Git-Mo's as the US has made life for them so brutal, however, I'm all over the Fish Amandine as it would taste nicely with a 2005 Alsace. http://www.gitmocookbook.com/index.html Interesting, a detainee who was quoted as saying today: "F^ck the waterboarding as I have one scheduled at 10:00am tomorrow." Then... "I usually just walk in and say.. Thanks for the Mustard-Dill Baked Fish last night bitches, let's get the bobbing for apples started here because we're havin some "Git Duck" rare b^tch at 11:00am!" Poor bastards. Down with America!

    Great post! Does everything above that you mentioned including give the rest of the team a chance to rest when Cangelosi needs somebody to interview between periods. He's a bargain! He could have signed elsewhere for more $ but I think Lou respects the fact that he knows the game, and although he is not the best skater on the ice (shot etc..) he will be apart of the Devs organization for years to come in some capacity off the ice. Faceoffs are key and he's one of the best.

We're going to lead by example _ by not just word but by deed. That's our vision for the future." Now... http://abcnews.go.com/ThisWeek/Economy/com...&id=6619291 "President-elect Barack Obama said this weekend that he does not expect to close Guantanamo Bay in his first 100 days in office. "I think it's going to take some time and our legal teams are working in consultation with our national security apparatus as we speak to help design exactly what we need to do," Obama said in an exclusive "This Week" interview with George Stephanopoulos, his first since arriving in Washington. "It is more difficult than I think a lot of people realize,". Really. Now this.. http://blogs.abcnews.com/george/2009/01/obama-calls-for.html "And eventually sacrifice from everyone?" I asked.

  5. The Eagles are here to see the GMEN give this game away. Chippy, Eagles taking late shots but that has always been their game. Looks like the refs want to manage the game and that's fine. Tom, calm the team down and pound the ball!
  6. iliansLeeds, I understand you 100% in regards to our relationship to Israel. I'm sure there are many maps to be found about Hamas and the civilians but that's not my point. Why are we the only country in the world that supports Israel? Why is Israel scared of Obama? I'm not going to dumb this down as you know the answers as I do. I just have a problems with religious states on both the Arab and Jewish side of the equation. Here me.. if Jerusalem were a CITY STATE with UN guards for all 3 major religions, we'd be in much better shape. That simple.
  7. "Um... why should Israel be concerned about our bad financial crisis and domestic policies? We are different countries after all..." No US no Israel and it's as simple as that. 4 million Jewish citizens in NYC is more than all of Israel so the political and economic environment is key. AIPAC... 100's of millions Jewish lobby influences defense, politics and other US Govt. officials looking to line their pockets. US right now is Israel's only ally (Canada ) and would be nothing but Nevada desert if it weren't for US technology and military support. "How is launching an attack on a terrorist group to make their citizens safe a "loose cannon"?" Israel is looking at February elections in their country and a 1,000 Pali's dead mean nothing to not only Israel, but the rest of the ARAB WORLD! Hamas are scum, but a full out offensive into a population center of 1.5 million people? Isreal has the best special forces in the world and could do more damage by hitting Hamas leaders and hanging them by their b^lls in the streets for the Pals to see. It could have been handled better.
  8. Love it! Welcome back Shanny! Philly, Pitt and Rag fans know what a competitor he is! Great in the lockerroom and I cant wait to see him at the rock for his first game back! Hell bent on a Cup this year so lets get a #2 dman LOU!
  9. Been watching him for almost 20 years now (Holik Jagr same year). He's a hockey god and because he was a Ranger he is hated but so was Mac etc... As a Capital he did not win a Cup but was still one of the best in the world. His reach is uncanny, positioning is sick, skating ability at 50% is better than most in the NHL and he makes room for everybody else on the ice. He will fill many a seat!

  11. Hamas... very bad. Israel means well most of the time except for when they go on an a military offensive. I think throughout Israel's history they have done much better when attacked by an army (Eygpt, Syria etc..). When attacked, they can strike better than any country in the world in conventional fashion. We live in different times now. The Arab nations have been pushing their buttons for the last 8 years and 2006 was the breaking point. They attacked in strength north into Lebanon not knowing the enemies capabilities for probably the first time on record ever... Israel paid the price. Now they attack Gaza I think for a few different reasons but again, they will get bogged down in street to street fighting. Simply put, bad timing. If the United States went into Iraq like Israel went into Gaza killing close to 800 civilians in 11 days? Really, Israel is much better than this and they have OUR weapons to prove it. There is no need for that many civilian losses when 1 bomb took out one of the most prominent leaders of Hamas and 23 members of his family in ONE strike! Muammar al-Gaddafi, he shut the F up when a cruise missle whistled past his d^ck while he was having his way with one of many virgins. My point? Strategic strikes with the best special forces in the world is much better AT THIS TIME than all out war and heading into a city of 1.5 million people. Israel does not care about America (our bad financial crisis, domestic politics etc) because they are more concerned about Obama and creating a buffer in the south before Obama steps into the office. Israel claims to be America's friend but they are simply a loose cannon.

    The Wrestler

    Nation wide. Real quick, when I checked out to make sure it was Asbury, the link I afforded you and everybody else on this forum was not an advertisement for "Libido-Max" or "Enzyte". Don't know who the guy is in the link, but he validated my question about Asbury. And you're saying... "Sure Loulam, it's ok.. but libido max?" LOL! Anywho, glad it's an NJ based movie.

    The Wrestler

    Watching the tv ad's for the movie "The Wrestler", I could have sworn I saw "Convention Hall". Yeah, it is in the movie I guess for only a few seconds but damn it makes me proud that I grew up at the shore. http://newarkusa.blogspot.com/2008/12/bruc...tler-movie.html Looks like a great movie and glad to see Asbury Park, Bruce and NJ represented.
  14. You don't blame them. Ok, why? Great post btw.
  15. http://www.clickondetroit.com/news/18430596/detail.html This is pathetic... The Detroit School system gives 11K per kid, DC is 11.5 and the worst in the country in regards to our public schools: Detroit School Lacks Toilet Paper, Light Bulbs Donations Accepted Beginning Jan. 12 POSTED: Wednesday, January 7, 2009 UPDATED: 8:34 pm EST January 7, 2009 DETROIT -- A Detroit elementary school is asking for donations of toilet paper and light bulbs to keep their school functioning. The principal of the Academy of Americas sent a letter to staff, parents and partners asking for donations of items "that are of the utmost importance for proper school functioning and most importantly for student health and safety." In the letter, Principal Naomi Khalil cited budget constraints within the district as the reason why the school could no longer stock the items. The district is grappling with a more than $400 million budget deficit and is on the verge of being assigned an emergency financial manager by the state. The letter asks for toilet paper, paper towel rolls, trash bags and 60, 100 or 150-watt light bulbs. "We realize that the economic situation is stressful for our entire community, but we are asking for your collaboration," wrote Khalil. "We thank you for your cooperation and we hope that as a school community we can pull together to guarantee the best possible educational environment for our children." Parents said a letter went out asking for supplies at the start of the school year. "They sent out a letter for pencils, pens, they put Kleenex on there," said parent Danny Huddleston. A spokeswoman for the district said the school is not running out of supplies but instead is asking for them to ensure they have sufficient supplies to what they already have. But at least one parent said he doesn't mind helping out the school no matter the circumstance. "I'm all about helping the school. If that's what they need then that's what we need to see what we can do to help the out," said Juan Oroczo. Donations are being accepted at the school's font office, beginning Jan. 12. They still have enough on hand, just asking for more donations.. whatever. THIS IS WHAT KILLS ME! AT THE SAME TIME A SCHOOL IS BEGGING FOR TP, A CITY COUNCIL WOMAN DECIDES... LOL! http://www.clickondetroit.com/news/1843108...tail.html#video Monica Conyers On Educational Trip To Israel POSTED: Wednesday, January 7, 2009 UPDATED: 6:24 pm EST January 7, 2009 DETROIT -- Detroit City Council President Monica Conyers is en route to Israel to learn about that country and conflicts with its neighbors. Spokeswoman Denise Tolliver said Conyers is to arrive Thursday in Jerusalem on the seven-day American Israel Education Foundation's African-American Leadership Mission. She and other leaders from across the U.S. will visit Israel's borders with Lebanon and Syria and meet with Palestinian and Israeli reporters. Conyers has been criticized for spending time away from the Detroit City Council and the cost of her security detail. Conyers did not mention her absence to all her co-workers. Council member Kwame Kenyatta said he learned about her trip Wednesday afternoon when Local 4 reporter Roger Weber asked him to comment on it. Conyers was also absent from the council for over a month in the summer for a surgery she never revealed. Conyers' will miss a council meeting Tuesday, but is being kept abreast of city issues. Conyers trip comes the day after the city's bond status was downgraded to junk status. "You don

  17. The Palestinians have been the bastard stepchild of the Arab world for decades. Hamas knows this and will play this card to gain Arab support because Iran and Syria have fed them some nice technology via Egypt. The rockets that have been fired into Israel are very much a terrorist act but Hamas does not speak for all of the Palestinian people. Israel must admit this is a war about an election in February and they never will. The US is the only country supporting Israel which says to me that AIPAC has payed off our elected officials handsomly. Obama has said nothing so he is scared sh^tless which I figured because he has no foreign policy experience and Bush is a lame duck who has always supported Israel to my distaste. Who is to blame here in order: Israel for a political war against a gang called Hamas that does not represent all of Palestine but now 500 dead and 2000 injured. The Arab world for not supporting the Palestinian cause except only when it benefits the Saudi's and big Arab players. The US (and I hate to say this but it's true) must not treat Israel like a Democracy as they are a Jewish State and as guilty as Muslin nations that live and die by the Koran. Religious states do not work and don't give me this crap that Israel is the closest thing to a democracy in the region.. it is or it isn't a democracy.. and it is not. Mayor Bloomberg is on his way over to Israel to show his support. Great, I'm glad there is another target on NYC for 09... what a d^ck. Solution: US denounce the killing of these poor people and get Obama to step up and say something.. ANYTHING because he is what the world is looking at for leadership and so far nada! Israel is scared because Obama cannot be owned and wants peace throughout the world. That will never happen. The US... BUSH must call for a cease fire ASAP to show Israel the world does not support their actions. In this day and age, Israel cannot just to decide to act without support from major players in the world especially when it leaves the US hanging out to dry.

    Lock him in now as the team needs his skating regardless of his mistakes from time to time. Martin was a steal and Oduya could be even bigger.
  19. http://www.dailyrecord.com/apps/pbcs.dll/a...ID=200881224008 TRENTON, N.J. (AP) -- New Jersey Sen. Loretta Weinberg's nest egg had grown to about $1.3 million before investments with disgraced Wall Street investor Bernard Madoff wiped her out. The 73-year-old grandmother believed she was financially secure until recently, when an accountant phoned a relative to say the Weinberg family's investments -- including the senator's and those of many in her family -- were now worth nothing. The Weinbergs, like New Jersey Sen. Frank Lautenberg's charitable foundation and scores of others, were victims of a multi-billion-dollar Ponzi scheme masterminded by Madoff. Madoff, a former Nasdaq stock market chairman, has become one of the most vilified people in America since news broke Dec. 11 that he allegedly had been running the scheme, paying returns to certain investors out of the principal received from others. "I was shocked first of all," said Weinberg, a Democrat representing Bergen County. "I had never heard of Bernie Madoff. My money was invested, along with many extended family members, with a financial adviser in Los Angeles." The Weinbergs' money manager, Stanley Chais, had invested his clients' IRAs, 401Ks and other funds with Madoff. The Wall Street Journal reported Monday that the Chais Family Foundation was invested entirely with Madoff, and shut down operations Sunday, after years of donating $12.5 million a year to Jewish causes in Israel and Eastern Europe. Weinberg's late husband, Irwin, was a hardworking businessman who believed staunchly in putting something away for a rainy day. The squandered money represents that which the Weinbergs scrimped and saved while raising two children in Teaneck. "Irwin had a saying, 'If you made a dollar and a half, you put 75 cents into a savings account and you lived on the other 75 cents,'" Weinberg told the Wall Street Journal for a recent story on Madoff's victims. "I was glad my husband wasn't here to see it," she said Tuesday, noting that he would have been beyond furious to have had his life-savings ripped off. Weinberg said she especially regrets that the losses sustained by charities invested with Madoff could make people reluctant to give. "My one moment of real anger was when I found out he was ripping off the Elie Wiesel Foundation," she said. "You have to have no morals whatsoever." The Elie Wiesel Foundation for Humanity is the charitable foundation of the Nobel laureate and Holocaust survivor, another of Madoff's victims. Despite losing her life savings, Weinberg, who makes $49,000 a year as a state legislator, isn't moping. The liberal lawmaker said she still has the work that she loves and the ability to pay her mortgage. "I'm really better off than a lot of people around us in our society today," she said. "I may be better off than some of the people who got ripped off in this scandal." Weinberg's even come up with laugh lines about her predicament. For example, she's been joking with friends that she's going to earn money by starting a new franchise: Granny's Pizza Delivery. The deliverers will use walkers that have been retrofitted with pizza-warming trays. She laughingly predicts that those grannies, including her, could pull in big tips. 1) "My one moment of real anger was when I found out he was ripping off the Elie Wiesel Foundation," she said. "You have to have no morals whatsoever." Why was the Foundation playing in the market IN A FRIGGEN HEDGE FUND? You know the answer. 2)"I'm really better off than a lot of people around us in our society today," she said." Profound knowing how corrupt our State is that 1.3 million... not a big deal to her. Pathetic! 3) "The Weinbergs' money manager, Stanley Chais, had invested his clients' IRAs, 401Ks and other funds with Madoff." http://www.hazon.org/go.php?q=/about/z_bio...anleyChais.html "Stanley Chais is a private investor who has been active in a wide range of Israeli and American Jewish charitable activities over the past 30 years. For the last thirty years, Stanley has combined his business activities with a wide range of philanthropic endeavors for the benefit of Jewish communities in the United States, the former Soviet Union (FSU) and Israel. He believes that "all Jews are responsible for each other", and is particularly involved in supporting learning and culture. Over the last decade, the Chais family has supported many institutions of higher education in Israel. Stanley sits on the boards of The Weizmann Institute, the Hebrew University, the Technion University, and Ben Gurion University. In the United States, he serves on the boards of the National Foundation for Jewish Culture and the Jewish Joint Distribution Committee. Stanley Chais supports Israel not only in higher education, but also helps to establish Israeli start-up companies which include new immigrant scientists. The emphasis is on developing human capital in Israel towards joining the international, technology front of progress. Stanley has been actively investing in Israeli start-up companies - an effort that has continued with his son, Mark, who has emigrated to Israel where he now heads his own venture capital company." Eat your own people!
  20. Why would Obama "steal" when all the $$$ he needs and or needed was fed to him via crooks like Wright and his other pals in Chicago politics. Cash rules!
  21. http://www.stoptheaclu.com/archives/2008/1...paying-to-play/ Obama, Ayers and Wright (what a f'in crew!) will simply say: "He's only an aquaintance, I just met him." The media better do it's work on this because we've all had enough of their sh^t! That includes Chicago politics that has been Democratic for the last 80 years! "I just met him or her at a dinner party..", while the envelope with a nice Lib/Dem check from the unions and taxpayers screws more families. Chicago politics .
  22. Why did you just post? Are you frustrated.. yes. Funny how libs just like to antagonize and the call DM when they (you) are called a name. Do you post just to get your post # up Run? No, you're just uneducated and can't keep up with Leeds or myself. Get that post count up Run because that's a big part of life!
  23. Nature, you like weed and or selling it. Am I right or wrong? I think I'm right and if you like it.. great! You probably also give nothing back to society and just like your XBox. Dip.
  24. What's your point? Rhetoric that I expect here but you can't defend that the ACLU supports NAMBLA, terrorism and hatred of the the Constitution. It's simple.
