Blogging will be light or non-existant tonight, as I’ll be in Niagara Falls with the family, as usual. Be careful tonight. I like having all of you as readers.

Professor Ed Lynch of Hollins U in Roanoke, VA has a column posted today which ought to raise an eyebrow or two…. You might be a liberal if … An example or two: “You might be a liberal if… You think that protestors outside nuclear power plants are dedicated activists, but protestors outside abortion clinics […]

You will recall I mentioned the other day a editorial from the blithering idiot, Al Neuharth. It seems that E*P has been getting drowned in letters of response from angry Americans who share my view. E&P is singing the blues at their site. Dare I say it looks like they’re trying to defend his actions? […]

Dizzy Girl Gennie notes an effort on the left to boycott Gasoline sales on the day President Bush is inaugurated. Aside from the idea that they still can’t get over losing and move on, the connection here of course is the left thinks Mr. Bush is somehow still profiting from oil ales, Iraq is all […]

The Greatest Jeneration points out that while the death toll on the Sunami business keeps getting higher, the bright spot is Amerca’s bellying up to the bar… so far there’s on the order of 80 million in PRIVATE donations…. a figure that leads the world… as usual.

Jump to Boortz’s site.Here. Scroll down to the photo.  check the guy in the black T-shirt behind the body on the stretcher.  See what he’s wearing? Now, do you understand why I ask about how all this aid we’re doing is going to play on the GWOT? OTOH, consider Mr. Bush’s action of bypassing hte […]

Ed over at The Captain’s Quarters has noted a little steam coming out of the ears of the “one-world” crowd. Apparently, the problem is that while being very generous indeed toward the goal of helping the stricken, the President has opted to, in large measure, bypass the ocrrupted United Nations. He quotes an article posted […]

Dizzy Girl notes that “Buy Blue” site has it wrong about Starbucks. “So here’s the deal: the information listed on BuyBlue.org is wrong.

This is something I should have thought of when I wondered earlier today how the Islamofacist angle was going to play in SriLanka. Michelle Malkin points out there are Islamofacists out there operating groups rasing money ostensibly for Tsunami victims. But, beware who you send your money to, gang. Here’s a link you want to […]
