A snippet of my Palm notes, to give you an idea of what I’m working on for this weekend. There is a major difference between mandating what we’ll call “RACIAL Diversity” and encouraging “TRUE Diversity”. “Racial diversity” simply means we have a lot of different races represented in a given sector of society. “True diversity” […]

As a follow-on to the race ruling at the USSC, (above) I wonder a bit at the reaction from Dick Gephardt, who says, among other things, in front of Jesse Jackson’s motley crew, where the ruling was the main discussion, today: “When I’m president, we’ll do executive orders to overcome any wrong thing the Supreme […]

I’ve not had the chance to read the text of the ruling(s) as yet, but on the whole, I find myself fairly comfortable that this is by no means a landmark ruling; that it will be revisted, and soon.  It appears that the ruling itself contained indications that the policy would ‘not be needed in […]

I’m sure that headline will get a rise out our brothers in Western Canada… Well, that was the discussion on the Randy Taylor program on 1010/CFRB in Toronto. Apparently, there’s an awful lot of people in Ontario who are most upset about the way the SARS crisis was handled, and are considering rebel votes against […]

Sales are off to a brisk start with the new Harry Potter book, according to London’s Evening Standard, in J.K Rowling’s native England. We own a copy as well, as of this morning. But you know, I don’t recall specific references to people actually stealing Hillary’s book prior to publication, other than a few obviously […]

I wonder who they think they’re helping? A new study out on mobile phone use today, which states that the hands-free devices mandated here in NY don’t help from a safety standpoint. So, what’s next? Banning phones in cars altogether? Banning music in cars? Conversation in cars? Banning cars altogether? Let’s go back just a […]

Hillary Clinton was in town over the weekend. The reaction from the majority of the locals was, well, frankly, less the generous. Hopefully, the DPW crews are equipped to deal with the large numbers of people thowing up at roadside as she passed.  Of course there were a number of people here who welcomed her […]

According to a story in USELESS TOADY (called USA TODAY by liberals) it turns out that domestic violence isn’t just men on women. Karen Peterson says the Feminist Mantra “it is men only who cause violence,” is a myth. An interestingr read. What’s most amazing about it is that Gannet is even running such a […]

(Sigh) These folks never seem to learn. Apparently, a number of the Democrats trying to gain the (rather useless) Democrat nomination, are out making nice in front of Jesse Jackson’s so-called ” Rainbow/PUSH Coalition “.  One of the participants is Howard Dean, who just gets more stupid by the day, is now questioning that Iraqis […]

Oil is flowing in Iraq as of today. Slowly at first. One hopes that the added money will help in their rebuilding efforts.Only this time, let’s makre sure it doesn’t end up only in the hands of a few in Baghdad. Isn’t it interesting that our own socialist left has been fighting against that day?
