its amazing how condescending demokkkrats are. "look look! heres a big celebrity!!! Oooohhhh. Aaahhhh. Vote for me?"

how pathetic. i'm amazed so many americans allow themselves to be swayed by the fact that someone like oprah (who could care less about the direction of this country since she could buy her own island anywhere in the world) supports a candidate.

the demokkkrat party: watching out for the common man since 1964! (/sarcasm)

I'm glad you did not mention global warming because that is
not an issue. Global warming is a front for sucking taxes out of us as well as controlling our use of private property.

On the day Oprah stepped up for Obama, Hillary felt compelled to announce her very own celebrity supporter - none other than Barbra Streisand.

That's the day I concluded that Hillary was toast.

Don't underestimate Oprah's power! I don't exactly understand it but I don't doubt it.

Bush and his henchmen have already decided who the next president will be and they will make sure it happens. Voting is fruitless.

I wonder if she knows how many parts you can remove from a commercial jet engine for cost reduction after it's been certified, and how many of the remaining parts made in China will survive an airplane crash?

Does Oprah care about the childrens? especially the ones sexually abused in her school; Bush to veto health insurance bill 32 minutes ago

WASHINGTON - President Bush on Wednesday was ready to veto legislation that passed with bipartisan support to dramatically expand government-provided health insurance for children.


It would be Bush's seventh veto in seven years. Bush vetoed an earlier version of the health insurance program.

The bill passed the Democratic-controlled Senate by a veto-proof margin, but the same was not true in the House. Even after the bill was approved, negotiations continued on a compromise version.

A major point of contention with the White House was Bush's demand that nearly all poor children eligible for the program be found and enrolled before those in slightly higher-income families could be covered.

Bush also has opposed using an increased tobacco tax to fund the program expansion. The bill includes a 61-cent rise on a package of cigarettes.

The replacement measure was designed to meet Republican objections to the first bill. But it was little changed.

It would increase funding for the State Children's Health Insurance Program by $35 billion over five years, in order to add an estimated 4 million people to an existing program that provides insurance coverage for children from families who earn too much to qualify for Medicaid but cannot afford private insurance. The joint federal-state program currently provides benefits to roughly 6 million people, mostly children.

Bush's veto in early October of a similar bill was narrowly upheld by the House.

But the votes are uncomfortable for GOP lawmakers. It is a popular program with the public, making some Republicans wary of sticking with Bush on such an issue with the 2008 elections looming. Of the 43 million people nationwide who lack health insurance, more than 6 million are under 18 years old. That's more than 9 percent of all children.

Democratic leaders have tried to capitalize on this dynamic to win more Republicans to their side on the bill, but so far Bush has maintained a veto-proof majority, at least in the House. A two-thirds vote in both chambers is required to override a presidential veto.

Cincinnati race riots, April 2001 (who could forget?)

The April 2001 riots, sparked by the shooting of African-American Timothy Thomas by Officer Stephen Roach, threw the Cincinnati Police Department back into the national eye. The outcry prompted a U.S. Department of Justice Civil Rights Division investigation that culminated in a federal agreement with both the City of Cincinnati and the Cincinnati Police Department towards the improvement of area law enforcement. Along with new publications on community policing and public relations, this Memorandum of Agreement may be viewed online or in print in the Information & Reference Department. The first quarterly status report, in which the CPD’s compliance with the Memorandum is reviewed, has been posted to the CPD website with other collaborative documents. Additional information on Cincinnati Police Practices (including the Final Settlement of the U.S. District Court) is available on the ACLU’s website.

A lengthy review of racial profiling in Cincinnati by the consulting firm RAND Corporation led to the study “Police-Community Relations in Cincinnati.” This item is available only online—you’ll find a link to the title in our Catalog.

A concurrent internal investigation of Officer Roach was carried out by the Cincinnati Police Department, culminating in a report released to the public. Numerous newspaper articles tracking the riots, the investigations, the ensuing boycott, and the creation of Cincinnati CAN (Community Action Now) task force and the Citizen Complaint Authority may be searched via Newsdex. Type in “Cincinnati (City) Police Department” as the main subject heading in order to retrieve lists of articles on the CPD over the years, all of which may be read in the Magazines & Newspapers Department. More information can also be found in the RAND report, Police-Community Relations in Cincinnati. See also the local media’s joint archive of news stories and links online pertaining to recent developments in our community’s race relations.

Information on the current Cincinnati Police Department is online, including recruitment information, neighborhood crime statistics, photos and descriptions of missing persons as well as Cincinnati’s Most Wanted, and a memorial to officers who have died in the line of duty. The website also offers online forms for citizen complaints and service feedback, as well as a list of neighborhood assignments for police officers. Cincinnati was also included in a report by the Bureau of Justice Statistics, Police Departments in Large Cities, which offers a statistical profile of department personnel and equipment.

The Cincinnati Police conducts ongoing recruitment for new police officers. The Information & Reference Department’s collection contains several study guides for general police exams. The Cincinnati Police webpage contains a detailed document called “Police Recruit Information Guide” for those who are interested.
