It seems Ahmadinejad wants to remove radicalism. I wonder if Ahmadinejad means al Qaeda & the Taliban? I suspect he means the Iranians protesting his election. I bet Obama considers those questioning his status as a ‘natural born citizen’ and Tea Party protesters as the radicals in his world. Obama and Ahmadinejad something in common! They both fear their own people!
TEHRAN (FNA)- Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad underlined the necessity for collective effort to remove radicalism in the region.
“Radicalism is a threat to all countries in the region,” Ahmadinejad said in a meeting with visiting Pakistani National Assembly Speaker Fehmida Mirza here in Tehran on Thursday, adding that Tehran and Islamabad should cooperate with each other to remove radicalism….Continue Reading
Climate Gate –
Good for India. I hope they reestablish the credibility of the scientific community. It will take some work and involve listening to the voices of critics.
By Dean Nelson in New Delhi

The Indian government has established its own body to monitor the effects of global warming because it “cannot rely” on the United Nations’ Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, the group headed by its own Nobel prize-winning scientist Dr R.K Pachauri.
The move is a significant snub to both the IPCC and Dr Pachauri as he battles to defend his reputation following the revelation that his most recent climate change report included false claims that most of the Himalayan glaciers would melt away by 2035. Scientists believe it could take more than 300 years for the glaciers to disappear.
The body and its chairman have faced growing criticism ever since as questions have been raised on the credibility of their work and the rigour with which climate change claims are assessed. …Continue Reading

Glenn Beck Misrepresents ‘Natural Born Citizen’ Issue –
Many of Glenn Beck’s supporters continue urge Mr. Beck to be fair when bringing up the issue of Obama’s lack of eligibility to serve as President. All Beck’s supporters ask is that if he feels the need to bring up the subject that he do so objectively and accurately.
Those who question Obama’s eligibility do so on the basis that he is not a ‘natural born citizen’. Glenn Beck continues to support the far left position that everyone is questioning only Obama’s ‘citizenship’. That is not true. The issue also involves the citizenship of Obama’s parents.
It’s not really just one birth certificate that’s required. To prove Obama is a ‘natural born citizen’, we need 3 birth certificates. The issue demands looking at the citizenship of Obama’s parents. They (2) must have been ‘citizens’ at the time of Obama’s birth. If Obama’s father had been ‘naturalized’ at the time of Obama’s birth, that would be good enough for me.
Today the Unemployment fell to 9.7%. Wow! Well, not so much because most of the job increase was due to government hiring. Standby when all the Census hiring ends when the 2010 Census ends later this year. Obama continues to attempt to put in place measures that will kill jobs. Jobs won’t really increase until small businesses can predict that they won’t be screwed by Obama.

…. Moving out of the double-digits on unemployment will be a political boost for Barack Obama, but the improvement is less dramatic than that. The civilian employment level finally increased by 111,000 people, the first increase in several months, but over 1.5 million left the job force in 2009. Furthermore, the hiring mostly took place in the government sector:
Construction employment declined by 75,000 in January, with nonresidential specialty trade contractors (-48,000) accounting for the majority of the decline. Since December 2007, employment in construction has fallen by 1.9 million.
In January, transportation and warehousing employment fell by 19,000, due to a large job loss among couriers and messengers (-23,000).
Employment in manufacturing was little changed in January (11,000). After experiencing steep job losses earlier in the recession, employment declines moderated considerably in the second half of 2009. In January, job gains in motor vehicles and parts (23,000) and plastics and rubber products (6,000) offset small job losses elsewhere in the industry.
In January, temporary help services added 52,000 jobs. Since reaching a low point in September 2009, temporary help services employment has risen by 247,000.
Retail trade employment rose by 42,000 in January, after showing little change in the prior 2 months. Job gains occurred in January among food stores (14,000), clothing stores (13,000), and general merchandise retailers (10,000).
Health care employment continued to trend up in January. Ambulatory health care services added 15,000 jobs over the month.
In January, the federal government added 33,000 jobs, including 9,000 temporary positions for Census 2010. Employment in state and local governments, excluding education, continued to trend down.
It’s not as bad as people feared, but it’s not really good news, either. The bounce in retail suggests that people may be ready to spend, but the declines in most other areas show that there are still fewer of them who can
