Supreme Court settles case

It's been a bit over a year since the 2004 election and the case has finally been settled by the Kentucky Supreme Court. The following is a statement from Virginia Woodward's lawyer, Jennifer Moore:
The Kentucky Supreme Court issued its ruling a few moments ago in the Stephenson v. Woodward case. We won!! We are thrilled the Court placed the Constitution above power and politics. The Court in a 5 to 2 decision affirmed the permanent injunction against Stephenson prohibiting her from serving in the State Senate as she is not qualified under the Kentucky Constitution. Now, it is up to the Governor to call a special election immediately so the citizens of the 37th district will finally have the representation they deserve.

Thanks for your support over the past year. I especially want to thank Virginia Woodward who has stood so strong and honorably in the face of such fierce opposition. The Democratic Party and the Commonwealth should be extremely proud of her today. Thank you.

Hoosiers, soon, will have a harder time paying for health care. If there's anything more than world peace that we need, it's affordable health care and education.
Reaction was similar from Sen. Evan Bayh, D-Ind. All Senate Democrats and five Republicans opposed the bill.

"I believe very strongly that we need to get our deficits under control, but this bill reflected the wrong priorities for the nation and broke the American promise by cutting funding for those most in need," Bayh said in a statement.

About 13 percent of Indiana's population, 838,136 Hoosiers, were enrolled in Medicaid in June.

Democrats were able to strip out a proposal that would have granted hospitals that receive Medicaid money a liability waiver if they refuse medical care to the poor.
As a result, the House must return for a second vote. The House adjourned early Monday after passing the budget package.
Had Bush not had his tax plan passed, this would never have happened.

For every negative thing that people say about Senator Joe Lieberman, there is always something positive to say. Lieberman is a conservationist and he, like myself, cares deeply about the environment. I'm glad that he took a lead on this. The military spending bills were held hostage by a Republican Senator who now may be retiring from the Senate after his 25th failed attempt for Alaskan drilling.
"We won because we were right," Lieberman said. Lieberman said that drilling in the refuge in northern Alaska is wrong because it perpetuates a "dangerous myth" that America can drill its way out of dependence on foreign oil.

And, Lieberman said, it was right to oppose those who would try to hold the military budget hostage during a time of war simply to win support for a pet project.

"It would have been a terrible precedent that would haunt the Senate for years to come," Lieberman said.[...]

"LCV praises those members who stood with the majority of the American people in rejecting this abuse of power and protecting one of our national treasures," said League of Conservation Voters President Deb Callahan. "In particular, we would like to acknowledge Sen. Joe Lieberman for his leadership and tireless work in fighting to protect the refuge."[...]

During a morning debate, Lieberman said he had opposed drilling in the Arctic since entering the Senate in 1988.

"Over the last 17 years, we have had good, fair fights on this issue according to the rules," Lieberman said. "What they have done this year is attempted to suspend those rules."

Lieberman assailed proponents of drilling, saying it was audacious and disrespectful to attach the measure to the military spending bill.

"If we yield to this tactic this time on ANWR, next year it will be someone else's pet project," Lieberman said. "If you support our military and want security of funding for it, you will vote against cloture."

Make no mistake: Our mission at Tip Top Equities is to sift through the thousands of underperforming companies out there to find the golden needle in the haystack. A stock worthy of your investment. A stock with the potential for big returns. More often than not, the stocks we profile show a significant increase in stock price, sometimes in days, not months or years. We have come across what we feel is one of those rare deals that the public has not heard about yet. Read on to find out more.

Nano Superlattice Technology Inc. (OTCBB Symbol: NSLT) is a nanotechnology company engaged in the coating of tools and components with nano structured PVD coatings for high-tech industries.

Nano utilizes Arc Bond Sputtering and Superlattice technology to apply multi-layers of super-hard elemental coatings on an array of precision products to achieve a variety of physical properties. The application of the coating on industrial products is designed to change their physical properties, improving a product's durability, resistance, chemical and physical characteristics as well as performance. Nano's super-hard alloy coating materials were especially developed for printed circuit board drills in response to special market requirements

The cutting of circuit boards causes severe wear on the cutting edge of drills and routers. With the increased miniaturization of personal electronics devices the dimensions of holes and cut aways are currently less than 0.2 mm. Nano coats tools with an ultra thin coating (only a few nanometers in thickness) of nitrides which can have a hardness of up to half that of diamond. This has proven to increase tool life by almost ten times. Nano plans to continue research and development into these techniques due to the vast application range for this type of nanotechnology

We believe that Nano is a company on the move. With today�s steady move towards miniaturization we feel that Nano is a company with the right product at the right time. It is our opinion that an investment in Nano will produce great returns for our readers.
