    PESHAWAR, Pakistan - A Taliban commander in Pakistan’s tribal belt has banned a vaccination campaign against child polio in protest over frequent United States drone attacks there.

    Hafiz Gul Bahadur said that the U.S.-funded vaccinations for tens of thousands of children would be outlawed until drone attacks stopped.

    Unemployment benefits: not until Bush tax cuts pass, Senate GOP says - CSMonitor.com

    Senator Reed objected, noting that the Republican plan to permanently extend the Bush tax cuts gives the wealthiest Americans a $700 billion tax cut that is also not offset – and, unlike the employment benefit, would not expire.

    Senate Republicans stepped up the pressure on tax cuts this week by signing a letter pledging to block all legislation on the floor until Congress resolves how to fund government for the current fiscal year and extend the 2001 and 2003 Bush tax cuts, now set to expire on Dec. 31. Senate Democrats want leverage to move legislation critical to their base on issues ranging from immigration and unionizing police and firefighters to compensation for people wounded in the 9/11 attacks.

    Two political parties holding millions hostage to get what they want. What is the difference?

    One group wants to stop deaths, the other is fighting for 700 billion for billionaires.

    So are these right wingers going to say the Christian Science Monitor is a left wing rag????? Which group is more radical? The Taliban? Or the Republicans?

    Fortunately, this is not one of the 6% of rdean posts that make sense.

    Yea it does. It's about a political party that will hold millions hostage to push an agenda. Even the Christian Science Monitor has words for the GOP. Some Christians actually help people and don't see it as "socialism".

    Sounds like a lot of people here who refuse to give their children vaccines.
