Jen, at The Greatest Jeneration notes the Revolution going on in Lebenon that I noted earlier today and tosses off a comment in that write up that I think deserves it’s own post… Says she: …. the Syrian troops have been in Lebanon for 30 years! And no-one calls that a “quagmire!”… Yeah, funny thing, […]

So saysBlogcritics. That’s defined as having 100 hits per day. How can I be up and coming if I’ve been at this level for around 2 years, now? Somewhat more encouraging, the article they link to suggests that “a mere 0.4% of all active blogs have a sizeable audience… more than 10 regular visitors and […]

Mark Noonan, over at GOP Bloggers reports the Dutch are fleeing their country. He quotes a news story which says in part: “This small nation is a magnet for immigrants, but statistics suggest there is a quickening flight of the white middle class. Dutch people pulling up roots said they felt a general pessimism about […]

FOXNews.com is reporting that the Lebanese government has resigned. Offhand, I’d say President Bush’s plan is working.

Not quite, Billy… Putin’s simply getting his info from the Bush-hating Euro Newspapers.

One of the reasons I got out of Usenet for the most part was the nut cases. The place is simply awash in them. Here’s an example:This idiot actually thinks Hunter Thompson was murdered. “What is laughingly called “the law” in america says it was a suicide but who’s dumb enough to believe that?.  They’re […]

Over the last several days, we’ve watched as the Pope goes through trials I pray for him, I wish him well, but that concern pales in comparison in light of my concern for my own mother-in-law, who is also going through some trying times. For those who have been asking, we’re now looking for a […]

James makes note of a Mark Steyn bit at Outside The Beltway today.  Steyn says: CIA analysts predict the collapse of the EU within 15 years. I’d say, as predictions of doom go, that’s a little on the cautious side. But either way the notion that it’s a superpower in the making is preposterous. Most […]

The left in this country… at least, certain diverse elements of it, is starting to understand the problem they have gathering support. Mark you, they’re fumbling efforts, mostly because they’re not quite sure what to DO about it. And perhaps we will find that some wounds cannot heal. Take for example the attempt to rehabilitate […]

Look, I’ll be right up front, here, as I always am; I couldn’t care less for the most part about Hollywood’s “I love me” festival. As such, I won’t be blogging such nonsense, here tonight, though I may made a snide comment or two in the morning about a point or two. But on the […]

I’ve been doing some serious thinking about this Eason Jordan thing as well as the Guckert case that I blogged about yesterday. I think the two are tied together.  That’s the topic of this week’s Bit’s Bit: Loose Gannon on Deck: Guckert, Abovitz and the Jordan affair

Let’s start this discussion with a qualifier: Bill O’Reilly makes my butt hurt. I don’t like him. I don’t like the way he projects himself, I think he thinks way too much of himself. Being a former broadcaster, I know the trade attracts that kind of person and sometimes that kind of personality is needed […]

Slashdot reports on somehting that will doubtless make the job of a lot of server jockies a bit harder. If I read the reports from other sources, though, the records weren’t lost, per se’… rather some backuptapes (apparently a few of several generations) containing the records went missing. My take, based on personal experience with […]
