Today is the day when Britain steps back from the brink1, when we confront the bills from a decade of debt. A day of rebuilding when we set out a four-year plan to put our public services and welfare state on a sustainable footing, reform is one of the guiding principles of the spending review, and so too is fairness. Let's be clear, there is nothing fair about running huge budget deficits3, and burdening future generations with the debts we ourselves are not prepared to pay.

Just over a week after a federal judge ordered the military to stop enforcing "Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell", recruiters have complied. The Pentagon has sent a message out to the military stop enforcing "Don’t ask Don’t tell" .The Obama administration has filed as expected, an emergency motion, looking to stay that judge’s order, the government wants to bring back "Don’t ask Don’t tell", pending2 an appeal, and really pending a decision by Congress to repealing4.

The wife of the Supreme5 Court justice Clarence Thomas is asking for an apology from Anita Hill, a woman who accused Thomas of sexual harassment6 during his confirmation7 hearings in the early 90s. Here is the message. She says,"Good morning, Anita Hill. It’s Ginny Thomas. I just wanna to reach across the airwaves and the years and ask you to consider something. I would love you to consider an apology some time and some full explanation of why you did what you did with my husband." Anita Hill said very simply and very clearly, she says, "I certainly thought the call was inappropriate, I have no intention of apologizing, because I testified truthfully about my experience, and I stand by that testimony8.”

"The chimpanzee comes out of nowhere, and I’m just thinking get to the house. “ So Sue decided9 to make a house call.

"Really loud, and really like what’s going on. And we are looking from this window right here, the next thing you know he comes over here. He tries to open up the door and he does, he opens it up and starts doing this. So I ran downstairs and locked the door real quick.”

As Sue was pounding on some vacant cars, Tonya Jennings pulled up in her Ford’s Explorer.

"Came up,jumped up on top of my Explorer,looked through the window, got on top, started punching the sunroof.”

Tonya ran to safety, and good thing she did because look closely, Sue was about to show everyone how dangerous she is, claiming onto the police car. The police officer jumping in for protection. And Pawl Sue smashes the window.
