    Your government will maintain control (part 3)

    Expanded powers of military in domestic affairs:
    http://www.miami.com/mld/miamiherald...n/15176692.htm

    Don't let this part fool you:
    "The plan, which would replace a military trial system ruled illegal by the Supreme Court in June..."

    This is DIFFERENT from what was thrown out in June (read it again). Obviously Bush is following the old adage "if at first you don't succeed, try, try again".

    Here's some more detail:

    I especially like my tacos very hot. And by hot I mean spicy. I could mean hot as in heat. But I mean hot.

    Also, very related, is the fact that I'm out of smokes. Which basically means I am going to buy some in a few. It's just down the street, really. And it's a nice day for a stroll.
    The programmer’s wife tells him: “Run to the store and pick up a loaf of bread. If they have eggs, get a dozen.”
    The programmer comes home with 12 loaves of bread.

    Good question!
    I'm definitely a Geese with capital G... when I want to.

    I'm making steak fajtas tonight. I like hot tacos but i think these fajitas will be not so much hot as they are not hot. I may use soem hot sauce or hot peppers, though.
