Bradley Cranky As Campaign Heats

" ... The road wear is showing, too, on Vice President Al Gore ... Gore's fatigue shows up in rambling responses to voter questions (one, about the Internet, weirdly prompted him to go on about oil prices) and a sort of punch-drunk energy.

Aahhh, BBWWAAHAHAHAhahahahahahaha

On second thought, maybe Bradley is trolling this forum with bogus stories in order to throw Gore off. The idea is to get Gore quoting wacko loony stuff from TB2000 in order to discredit himself.

Al and Tipper were sitting down to their usual cup of morning coffee listening to the weather report coming over the radio. "There will be 3 to 5 inches of snow today and a snow emergency has been declared. You must park your cars on the odd numbered side of the streets." Al got up from his coffee and replies "Well, okay." Two days later, again they both are sitting down with their cups of morning coffee and the weather forecast is, "There will be 2 to 4 inches of snow today and a snow emergency has been declared. You must park your cars on the even numbered side of the streets." Al got up from his coffee and replies, "Well, okay."

Three days later, again they both are sitting down with their cups of coffee and the weather forecast is, "There will be 6 to 8 inches of snow today and a snow emergency has been declared. You must park your cars on the..." and then the power went out and Al didn't get the rest of the instructions. He says to Tipper, "What am I going to do now, Tipper?" Tipper replies, "Aw, Al, just leave the car in the garage."

I like Gore because his daughters are pretty. But GW's daughters are also pretty. So I am having a hard time in deciding who to support. Any suggestions.

Horse Is House Pet In 1-Room Home

Misha Eats At Dinner Table With Family

NEW CONCORD, Ohio -- A horse is a horse, of course, of course, but should it be a house pet?

A New Concord couple has no problem sharing their home with a 1,300-pound horse.

Jackie and Mark Tresl, along with an American quarter horse named Misha, appeared on "Good Morning America."

The Tresls say that Misha has been living in their one-room log cabin for 13 years.

It started when Misha developed pneumonia. So Jackie brought her in beside the wood stove. "When we tried to move her out, she wouldn't go," Jackie said.

Misha eats at the dinner table with the family. They say that she likes spaghetti, lasagna, mashed potatoes and doughnuts with cream filling. And Misha gets hot oatmeal with brown sugar after a ride.
Diane Sawyer asked if living indoors was healthy for a horse. "She looks good, don't you think?" Jackie said.

The couple says that Misha doesn't make messes in the house. It took about three weeks to housebreak the horse. "Easier to train than our dog," Jackie said.

Jackie would take Misha outside every three hours. And when they came back inside, Mark and Jackie would clap and sing and give her a treat. Since then, Jackie says that Misha has never had an accident: "She will let you know when she needs to go out."

What about the smell in the house? Jackie and Misha go for a ride every other day. When they return, Misha gets a shower.

Misha doesn't spend all her time in the house. Mark says that she sleeps out on the porch by herself from 12:30 a.m. to 6 a.m., because she walks around too much at night.

The Tresls and Misha have become virtual stars across the country. In fact, they just released a book, "Who Ever Heard of a Horse in the House?"

Tresl works as a freelance columnist for Internet Broadcasting Systems, which operates this Web site. Her "Stress Busters" articles appear in our Health section.

Now, will Gore mention this when he's tired and talking about the Internet again?

This is a test ... Horse in House

Declassified documents confirm secret worldwide US surveillance network

Declassified US official documents obtained by a non-governmental organization confirm the existence of a US-controlled network of worldwide surveillance called the Echelon.

Created in the early 1980s, Echelon intercepted telephone, facsimile, and e-mail communications by means of land- and satellite-based interceptors which relayed the information on to the US Defense Department's National Security Agency (NSA), the documents showed.

The documents were obtained under the Freedom of Information Act by George Washington University's National Security Archive and published in the archive's website:
[ Paging Dr. Paula Gordon ]

The world's most powerful intelligence agency with 38,000 employees, the NSA is twice the size of the US Central Intelligence Agency and has a budget to match, according to NSA researcher James Banford. It's task is to detect electronic espionage in the United States.

Headed by US Air Force Lieutenant-General Michael Hayden, the NSA has never confirmed the existence of the Echelon network. An NSA official questioned by AFP Thursday declined to comment on the network.

Two declassified documents mention Echelon by name specifically: one dated September 3, 1991, details the work of an electronic surveillance center at Sugar Grove, in western Virginia state, linked to the 544th Intelligence Group.

The other document dated June 15, 1995 mentions the activation of Echelon units at several US Army and Air Force bases around the world, especially those of Elmendorf, Alaska, Yakima, Washington state, and others in western Virginia, Puerto Rico and Guam, in the Pacific.

The US Congress opened a hearing on NSA activities in December to look into charges that the agency was eavesdropping on US citizens indirectly through British intelligence, by virtue of the UKUSA Alliance agreement signed in 1948.

In 1998, the European Parliament also charged the NSA with violating the privacy of communications between European citizens, companies and governments.

The NSA was created by the Defense Department in 1952 to intercept and analyze foreign communications and to provide a safe and encoded means of communication for the US government.

The horse-in-house story appeared in People Magazine (which I never read... ahem). Cute comment: The only inconvenience is that the couple can't argue when the horse is there, because it makes her nervous. So they have to talk nice to each other.

Maybe we should all live with livestock?

We live with a herd of giant house-dogs. They are very sensitive to harsh words. Best thing that ever happened to our marriage was when we ALL had to live in one AC'ed room for six months during a major house remodeling during sweltering summer! Major drawback (for "Daddy" mostly) is one boy won't let Dad "mess around" with Mom. He places himself between us, seemingly not taking sides. Needless to say, there are times when he has to go outside and pull extra guard duty :D

More likely that Bradley will mention it (horse in house)than Gore.About a half hour from Bradley's home in NJ is the Tempe Wick House in the Morristown area, famed for the young woman who brought her horse into the house to keep it from being requisitioned for the soldiers in the Revolutionary War.

But come to think of it, there's horse's asses in both the House and the Senate already.
