Primitive Fossil Found in Latvia

This is a story on a 365 million year old fossil found in Latvia.

"If you saw it from a distance, it would look like a small alligator, but if you look closer you would find a fin in the back," said lead author Per Ahlberg, a professor of evolutionary biology at Uppsala University in Sweden. "I imagine this is an animal that could haul itself over sand banks without any difficulty. Maybe it's poking around in semi-tidal creeks picking up fish that got stranded."

This all happened more than 100 million years before the first dinosaurs roamed Earth.

Obama is Smooth

He does speak brilliantly even though he really never says anything. When you do hear him speak off the cuff when his speeches aren't written for him, you will be begging for one of those funny speeches from our already unintelligible President Bush.

This is one of those great Obama speeches...

breathalizer, inhalator...what the heck is an inhalator!

Lincoln was a Republican

Maybe Obama should remember this when he is doing stump speeches from Lincoln's birthplace and also when he thinks the Republicans will use race to stoke fear in the upcoming election.

"It is going to be very difficult for Republicans to run on their stewardship of the economy or their outstanding foreign policy," Obama told a fundraiser in Jacksonville, Florida. "We know what kind of campaign they're going to run. They're going to try to make you afraid.

Apparently in Harvard Law School they failed to teach Obama about the history of America and the Republican Party. The Republican Party was founded primarily because the other partys, the Democrats and the Whigs refused to abolish slavery. Even when hundreds of thousands of people were dying and our country was almost completely in ruin, the Democrats refused to compromise because Lincoln would not let them keep their slaves. During the re-election of Abraham Lincoln, race was used to discredit the Republicans, you can see the racist election signs at the National Constitution Center in Philadelphia. Many are so racist I refuse to even repeat what many of them said. After the war was over more than 600000 people were killed, making it the most bloodiest war in United States history. I think Senator Obama might want to take an American History class at his local Community College or maybe pick up a book on Lincoln.
