First, I notice this entry, describing how someone working as a contractor at Microsoft got canned because of the content of his blog. Then I notice THIS entry, stating that Microsoft is making lots of noise about wanting to buy up Google. THEN, I remember that Blogger, which hosts this blog, is owned these days, […]

I’ve had some serious questions in my mind about France, in the past. I question no longer.  One of the Aussie news services is reporting this morning: Federal police say authorities have smashed an Australian terrorist cell linked to the French national Willie Virgile Brigitte, who they have confirmed has direct al-Qaeda connections.  ….  Mr […]

Another bit you won’t see reported in the mainstream news…. and more bad news for the Democrats who were going to campaign on what they called a bad economy. The 7.2 percent pace marked the best showing since the first quarter of 1984. It exceeded analysts’ forecasts for a 6 percent growth rate for third-quarter […]

Miller said Bush is “the right man at the right time” to govern the country. Says Miller the next few years “will determine the kind of world my children and […]

I think it’s pretty clear that “environmentalists” are wrong on their deadly anti-human extremism. Seems one of their own has figured this ou, when Dianne Feinstein comes out publicly and supports President Bush. Feinstein, D-Calif., came out on the floor of the Senate last night to urge passage of the Presdient’s Healthy Forests Restoration Act.  […]

Amazing stuff. We are getting blamed by Kofi Annan for not providing UN HQ in Iraq with enough security to prevent the bombing of that HQ. Meanwhile, Moonbeam Kucinich is saying we should pull out of Iraq and the UN should be brought in; saying that they can do a better job. Check his website. […]

A story in the Washington Post…. the only paper worth more than a dead tree in the DC area, is reporting that: While Washington continues to accuse Syria of harboring terrorist organizations, the EU is on the verge of signing an economic cooperation agreement with the government of President Bashar Assad. At what point do […]

Oh, come on…. Guys, sunspots happen every 11 to 15 years. I grew up hoping for a good sunspot cycle, so the radio bands would open up some, and give me the iincredibly long distance contacts typical in low VHF bands with scuh flare activity. But despite how these press releases on the subnspot cycles […]

I was still chuckling over the showing ANSWER put up down in DC, versus what they claimed it was. Since I posted that link to Belligerent Bunny’s Blog yesterday, my mailbox has been chocked full of other examples from other places on the net. This one is among the best. It exposes answers long list […]

John Hawkins over at RightWingNews makes note of the DU going even farther out into the weird zone with this gem: On the downside, the Democratic Underground has a up a poll asking, “Did Bush Family Interests kill JFK?” Currently, 59 out of the 79 (75%) of people who have voted in this admittedly slanted […]

Brian C. Anderson doesn’t seem to think so. He makes what I think is an interesting argument, listing the several heretofore unheard of successes of America over the Left… but I’m not as ready to decalre victory as Brian seems to be….. yet.

Long time readers will recall I am stoutly anti-Union… at least, as unions have evolved over the years into DNC House Organs. Compare this story, to the one about the Iraqi Toy drive, and make your own choices. Yes, Time Magazine. When even the left-leaning Time makes note of the Unions nonsense, you know it’s […]

I’ve written in the past regarding one Chief Wiggles, and the Blog he keeps. Apparently, he’s started a toy drive to benefit Iraq’s Children. Centcom even released a memo about it, yesterday. Ah, yes, those military types. Such heartless bastards, huh?

President Bush has it about right But he’s not telling the whole story; These are not Iraqi people attacking in Iraq. These are Muslim extremists from every country in the middle east. One of the monsters in that attack yesterday survived because his home-made bomb didn’t explode. They found, among other things, a Syrian passport […]

As angry as this is going to sound, these idiots are actually in open support of Saddam. Much lie the 60′s leftists who supported and idolized Ho Chi Mihn. Don’t take my word for it? Fine. Belligerent Bunny has noted that support, photographically. Sullivan has made note of it. Now, Mike Totten has noted it. […]
