(Best Syndication News) Cuban Foreign Minister, Bruno Rodriguez, called U.S. President Barack Obama an imperialist and liar because of his behavior at the Copenhagen conference on climate change. Governments of poor nations were left out of the negotiation, according to Rodriguez.

“At this summit, there was only imperial, arrogant Obama, who does not listen, who imposes his positions and even threatens developing countries," the minister said. He went on to call the summit “fallacy, (and) a farce” claiming that the U.S. was involved in back-room deals and strong-arm tactics. The proceedings were “undemocratic”, Rodriguez claimed.

Nevada Senator Harry Reid, who introduced the final Senate version of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, told reporters: "By creating strong competition, we’ll reduce skyrocketing health care costs that stop thousands of Nevadans and millions of Americans from getting the best possible health care.” President Obama praised the efforts saying “we are on the cusp of making health care reform a reality.”

[Best Syndication News] Rhode Island Democratic Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse wants the Federal Communications Commission to make advertisers on television turn down the volume to match that of the programming. He is introducing the The Commercial Advertisement Loudness Mitigation (CALM) Act of 2009 (S. 2847) along with co-sponsor Senator Chuck Schumer (D-NY) in hopes of changing the way advertisers annoy with loud volume.

This is nothing new the FCC has been receiving complaints about loud advertisements all the way back to the 1960's and that's more than likely why every remote control that we own today has a mute button on it. A top complaint is loud obnoxious tv ads is received by the FCC on a regular basis. The FCC in their published quarterly reports have listed the loudness of television commercials as one of the top complaints. In the last 25 issues of the FCC report, there were 21 issues that had this as the top complaint since 2002.
