California Grocery strikes are not working all that well, most telling is the last couple of paragraphs on why. The companies have lost millions of dollars in sales because of the picketing but have been able to keep stores open with replacement workers. While the losses in Southern California are substantial, they represent just a fraction of the companies' overall revenue. "The longer these things go on, the more difficult they become for the workers to prevail," said Robert Bruno, associate professor of labor and industrial relations at the University of Illinois in Chicago. "It's not as hard to replace a cashier as it is to replace a technician in a modern steel plant or a pilot on a plane." Howard Dean! says that Iraqis have a worse standard of living now than before the war. Now you see why the GOP wants among all of the democratic candidates Dean. Iraqis that Howard Dean hasn't met say differently though New Hampshire primary is this Tuesday and while various polls have different numbers, the order for the most part is Kerry first, Dean second, Edwards third, Clark fourth. The problem with these polls is that Independents in the state outnumber the Democrats and you never know what they will do. Dean has to win here because next week is Super Tuesday and he is going to head into states he is not strong in. Iranian hardliner Guardian Council refused reinstating thousands of candidates it had disqualified earlier. It will get ugly fast if this situation is not defused. Parents with stupid kids who can't make the honor roll in Nashville schools complained about the "embrassment" their kids might be subject too. This is what the public school system is coming too in America, we are just raising kids to worry more about their feelings than actual education. The principal didn't help with the situation at one of the schools with his liberal junk. "I discourage competitive games at school," he said. "They just don't fit my world view of what a school should be." France has gone after religious symbols and headscarves to maintain their idea of a secular society(since they realized they had about 5 million muslims living in society that hasn't brought into the French ideals) Now they are going after skullcaps, turbans from the Sikhs, and crosses from the Assyro-Chaldeans. This won't end well.
