    "Actor William Shatner on Monday reprised his "Star Trek" role to wake up the crew of the space shuttle Discovery in a recorded message."
    that also since, after the Shuttle retirement and the Constellation program flop, the next US spacecraft to fly in space might be the USS Enterprise in the year 2234 🙂

    Wisconsin Democrats' proposed border meeting – Just wait. Next week, just inside the doors of the Capitol, the people will have a time clock hung for those with "hot engagements" in Antioch, Schiller Park, Wake Forest, or 🙂

    The story pretaining to the citizenship of Obama will never be looked at by the Supreme Court for the simple reason that they know he is"NOT" a true citizen of the United States... If they were to open the case, some of them would lose their jobs due to the fact that afew of them are not citizens either, like the Mexican female that was seated there by Obama himself and the rest would look like the "BIG FOOLS THAT THEY ARE"... Also it would bring to surface the Illeagal Immigration problem in this country, then they would have to actually do alittle work, something they are too old and dried up to do!!! Obama is from the country of Africa and was raised ther until he was age (8) yrs old when he moved to the States and received a false birth-certificate. This is common knowledge that every has heard about, but then was side-tracked with other news stories and the media itself. Check it out and you'll see for yourself!!2
