On "Meet the Press" former Secretary of State Colin Powell crossed party lines and endorsed Barack Obama for President of the United States. He also repudiated his Republican Party for moving too far to the right. During that same interview, Powell referred to the death of a Muslim soldier, Kareem Rashad Sultan Khan of Manahawkin, N.J., who was killed in Iraq on Aug. 6, 2007. Powell framed the entire "Obama is a Muslim" debate in striking terms with his reference to this fallen American soldier. "He was 14 years old at the time of 9/11, and he waited until he could go serve his country, and he gave his life," Mr. Powell said. "Is there something wrong with being Muslim in America? No, that's not America,"Powell added.

Dad Walks Into Son’s Room And Realises Somethings Wrong – Then Finds A Note That Cracked Him Up.
Anyone who has had kids surely knows that their teenage years can be some of the toughest. With hormones changing, interests ever expanding and of course meeting new friends, and in this case, girlfriends. This troublesome teen seemed got into a bit of mischief and his dad was not too pleased, so he came up with a genius way to try and calm the situation.
His dad entered his room one night, but then found a note which read:
It is with great regret and sorrow that I’m writing you. I had to elope with my new girlfriend Stacy, because I wanted to avoid a scene with Mom and you. I have been finding real passion with Stacy, and she is so nice. However, I knew you would not approve of her because of her piercings, tattoos, and punk clothes. Also, she is so much older than me.
But it’s not only the passion, Dad. She’s pregnant. Stacy said that we will be very happy. She owns a trailer in the woods and has a stack of firewood for the whole winter. We share a dream of having many more children.
Stacy has opened my eyes to the fact that marijuana does not really hurt anyone. We will be growing it for ourselves and trading it with other people in the commune for all the cocaine and ecstasy we want.
In the meantime, we will pray that science will find a cure for AIDS, so Stacy can get better. She sure deserves it!
Do not worry, Dad. I’m 15, and I know how to take care of myself. Someday, I’m sure we will be back to visit, so you can get to know your many grandchildren.
P.S. Dad, none of the above is true. I’m over at Jason’s house. I just wanted to remind you that there are worse things in life than the school report that’s on the kitchen table. Call when it’s safe for me to come home!
This story has been around for a while and we are still unsure if it’s true. But one thing is for sure, it’s too funny not to share!
