In my opinion, this classic camel coat is gorgeous. Love the politically incorrect fur collar. Love the classic brass button details.
Who ever she is, she's perfection all wrapped up in pale pink lipstick, perfectly in sync with her pale pink nail polish that matches the pale pink tie clasp of the envelope she carries as an accessory. Even her Ray Bans are a perfect complement to her hair swept perfectly off her face.
Boehner to Return Pay if Government Shuts Down
House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, will return any pay made during a federal government shutdown.
"In the event of a lapse in appropriations for fiscal year 2011 causing a government shutdown, I will return any and all compensation that I would otherwise be entitled during such a lapse in appropriations," Boehner wrote.
Interesting insult. Hard to believe that $1 million dollars can buy the entire democratic party, but Planned Parenthood is more important than Armed Forces to Dems.
This photo caught my eye. Notice her sunglasses? Tortoise shell ( recently predicted here on DB as a fashion trend). Grey and yellow? Also, noted as trends to watch.
Her fur coat is a little 'ghetto', but her skirt is beautifully cool, and her classic black pumps are always in style.
In my opinion, her overall look is Jackie O with a funky twist.
Here's something to keep in mind as Democrats risk a government shutdown in order to preserve federal subsidies of Planned Parenthood. From the Center for Responsive Politics:
BAE Systems tested a new ejection seat that will be deployed on over 3,000 F-35 Lightning II combat jets around the world, using a 600-mph rocket car, a battery of sensors and one lucky mannequin. They captured it on video — but don't blink or you'll miss it: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aIz5z9VoLJU&feature=player_embedded
This is the world’s greatest driveway
Kiwi racing champion Rod Millen does everything better than you. Your old Toyota has 130 horsepower. His old Toyota has 800. Your driveway's a cracked asphalt mess. His driveway's a mile-long, race-paved dream that mimics the best race tracks in the world.
When Millen visited the Goodwood Festival of Speed in 2002 he saw the event's famous hill-climb track and decided he'd do the same thing… in his front yard. It's the kind of thing that seems logical when your job involves sending insane vehicles up the sides of guard-less cliffs.
Conveniently, Millen owns a large ranch in Hahei, New Zealand with enough room to fit a mile-long racing stage, albeit one not much wider than your average driveway. After years of planning, brush-clearing, and paving the track was finally finished earlier this year.
The track borrows here-and-there from places where Millen's raced, including the infamous Pikes Peak International Hill Climb circuit, where he set a time 40 seconds faster than anyone else who'd tackled it before in his AWD Celica. His record held for for 13 years.
MORE ON THE LEAKED REPORT ABOUT THE DOJ’S BLACK PANTHER CASE DISMISSAL: “In other words, if the New Black Panther Party says afterwards they didn’t like what happened in Philly, then they are off the hook. Take careful note folks, because Loretta King and Steve Rosenbaum never do this in any other case they bring. When the Justice Department sued Adams Mark hotels, or any of the other defendants they have sued, would a renunciation of employee behavior have satisfied the Justice Department? Of course not. In fact, the very same attorney, Steve Rosenbaum, pressed a case against a defendant in United States v. Aimco Properties when the defendants said they disclaimed the actions of an individual employee who used racial slurs. In fact, Rosenbaum and King forced a defendant who was no longer in business, and disclaimed the actions of the employee, to agree to a consent decree. It is all a question of which ox is getting gored.”
But the trip might get grounded if a government shutdown can't be averted by Republicans and Democrats in Congress.
On Thursday morning, the Federal Aviation Administration established a no-fly zone over Williamsburg that will be in place from Friday through Monday. Jessica Wharton, spokeswoman for the Newport News-Williamsburg International Airport, said the no-fly zone will not affect the arrival and departure times at the airport for this weekend.
Hey Obama, You Do Realize That You’re Responsible for the Shutdown if it Happens, Dontcha?
The Chinese state news agency has posted photographs of an aircraft carrier under reconstruction that appears to show the warship near completion. Captions with the photos said that the work would end soon and that the carrier was expected to sail later this year.
The photos of the carrier, the Varyag, which China bought from Ukraine in 1998, appeared Wednesday on the Web site of Xinhua, the state news agency.
It was the first time that Xinhua had given visual evidence of the carrier project, which is widely seen as a linchpin of China’s military modernization and naval ambitions.
Democrat Facebook Event: Let's Dump Trash at Boehner's Pad
ScienceDaily (Apr. 8, 2011) — Breast cancer is the second most common cancer among women, with more than 200,000 women diagnosed each year. Being exposed to estrogen over a long period of time is one factor that can increase a woman's risk of developing the disease. One way a woman can combat this risk factor is by taking the breast cancer drug tamoxifen, which interferes with the activity of estrogen. Now, researchers at Fox Chase Cancer Center have found that omega-3 fatty acids -- abundant in fish -- could be a safe and beneficial booster for tamoxifen therapy.

Finally — a bipartisan consensus emerges! Last night, CNN’s Dana Bash reported that Democrats on Capitol Hill have begun grumbling about the last-minute leadership of President Obama on the budget, having been less than impressed with his involvement until the moment of greatest media interest. Bash says that the strategy of keeping Obama “above the fray” leaves them holding the bag for failure — or worse, having a compromise forced down their throats. Anderson Cooper pronounces himself less than impressed
The migration wave unleashed by North African unrest has prompted France to resurrect its border with Italy—a barrier that was supposedly consigned to history's dustbin with Europe's unified economy. The operation is part of France's attempt to stop a wave of North African migrants who, having fled violence back home, regard Italy as a way station as they travel by boat, train and foot toward jobs and family in French cities. More than 700 migrants who have crossed into French territory via Italy have been detained by French police and escorted back, Italian officials said.
It might surprise many to learn that America's largest oil supplier is not located in the Middle East. It is actually Canada, which supplies the United States with more than two million barrels of the 11 million barrels of oil it uses each day.
Police Col. Djalma Beltrami said the killer used two handguns and a lot of ammunition. The suspect left behind a letter, in which he anticipated committing suicide after the attack. Beltrami, however, gave no details of any possible motive. Beltrami described the letter as “the words of a person who no longer believes in anything, full of sentences that made no sense and references to Islamic fundamentalism.”
