Objective Fact Checker In The Presidential Campaign
Mood:  a-ok
The website below seems more objective than other websites in checking the facts in the presidential race.

It's fortunate that all political issues can be closely scrutinized on the internet.

A well informed electorate is the best guardian for democracy and its institutions.

The site is FACTCHECK.ORG.

Top Ten Excuses If You're Caught Sleeping At Work
1. Let us pray....AMEN! 2. I was doing a highly specific Yoga exercise to relieve work-related stress. 3. I wasn't sleeping. I was meditating on our mission statement and viewing a new vision of our place in the universe. 4. They told me at the blood bank this might happen. 5. I was testing my keyboard for drool resistance. 6. Whew! Guess I left the top off the whiteout. You probably got here just in time! 7. This is just a 15 MINUTE POWER NAP like they raved about in that time management course you sent me to. 8. The coffee machine is full of decaf. 9. Why did you interrupt me? While thinking on a higher plane, I almost figured out a solution to our biggest problem. 10. It was just a minor heart attack. Thanks for reviving me.

Movie Review 82: Frankie And Johnny
Elvis is a riverboat gambler and entertainer in this well done musical of the early 20th century.
The dull romantic triangle storyline is saved by some good comedy and songs. Two and half stars.

Have You Taken These Surveys?
The website www.mislead.org has some interesting surveys on the above.

"A new study by the Program on International Policy Attitudes (PIPA)shows that supporters of President Bush hold wildly inaccurate views about the world. For example, "a large majority [72 percent] of Bush supporters believe that before the war Iraq had weapons of mass destruction."[1] Most Bush supporters [57 percent] also believe that the recently released report by Charles Duelfer, the administration's hand-picked weapons inspector, concluded Iraq either had WMD or a major program for developing them.[2] In fact, the report concluded "Saddam Hussein did not produce or possess any weapons of mass destruction for more than a decade before the U.S.-led invasion" and the U.N. inspection regime had "curbed his ability to build or develop weapons."[3]

According to the study, 75 percent Bush supporters also believe "Iraq was providing substantial support to al Qaeda."[4] Most Bush supporters
[55 percent] believe that was the conclusion of the 9/11 commission.[5] In fact, the 9/11 commission concluded there was no "collaborative relationship" between al-Qaeda and Iraq.[6]

Bush supporters also hold inaccurate views about world public opinion of the war in Iraq and a range of Bush's foreign policy positions.[7]

What Happened To The U.S. Dollar?
Mood:  down
Since February of 2002, the U.S. greenback has seen a 24.5% drop in its value. This is from skyrocketing trade and current account deficits-plus out-of-sight commodity pricies with oil yesterday back up to $54.75 US a barrel. Canada, a net exporter of commodities, has seen its currency go from .62 cents in February 2002 to 80.28 cents in October of 2004.

I don't think either presidential candidate has referred to the dollar's fall in the election campaign.

Visit This Halloween Funhouse
Funhouses are always exciting to visit. There is one in Arizona that you may have difficulty in finding and escaping from.

The ultimate challenge lies in distinguishing the true monsters and ghosts from the phonies. If you get it right, you survive, if you don't...well I think you know what happens.

The afterworld has its own traps and mysteries. Why not practice for it at The Gehenna Funhouse?

The Barron Blogarama
Please note, that I'm using three weblogs in order to properly describe what's happening in "The Barron Universe."

It's like having three heads at one time. When one dies, the others can carry on.

You can find the main one at www.barronblog.com and the others can be found at Barron Blog #2 and Dave And Irene's Weblog Page.

May you discover something new in every portal you go through.
