Alberto Gonzalez was never my idea of a conservative, not much of an administrator, and a horrid politician.  Still, people the sane side of Charles Schummer can view Gonzalez as a nice guy in the wrong job. I’ll skip past John Ashcroft, whom the left hated because he went to church, to worship.  Leftards only […]

[The democrats are] thinking of making it a misdemeanor to be a US Senator or Member of Congress. Then all of the Republicans will be forced to resign. The Democrats, en masse, will announce that they deeply apologize, but that the offense has no bearing on their ability to continue doing the job the American […]

As to the consensus within the scientific community on the theory of anthropogenic global warming, there simplly isn’t any.   So reports Michael Asher: Of 528 total papers on climate change, only 38 (7%) gave an explicit endorsement of the consensus. If one considers “implicit” endorsement (accepting the consensus without explicit statement), the figure rises to 45%. […]

The Jawa report, yesterday: Last April, the Thai government passed a law banning open-field trials of genetically-modified (GM) crops. Greenpeace was elated. Recently, it was reported that the Agriculture and Cooperatives Ministry was going to seek cabinet approval for a lifting of the ban on open-field trials of transgenic crops. Assuredly, Greenpeace was not amused […]

Because of other commitments, today, I was unable to comment on this in a timely fashion. Perhaps it’s a good thing I didn’t, because the story updated itself, getting even better. I’ll cut right to the update : WASHINGTON -AP- Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Rodham Clinton will give to charity the $23,000 in donations she […]

This would  be Molly…on her back, mouth wide open, on the bed, in front of the TV, reacting to the batteries in the TV remote being worn out again. Just one of those chance shots. Too bad, really, that I had the wrong camera in hand when this shot came along… this was done on […]

Tucker Carlson opined both on Larry Craig and his personal experence.  Listen to the video clip.   Pay attention to end.  Now ask yourself, what would be the leftstream media’s reaction  if a Jerry Falwell, or Rush Limbaugh had admitted to battery on a homosexual predator? Meanwhile in the alternative universe known as Atlantic, Steven Clemens, actually excuses the sexual predator. I […]

I’ve been watching this nonsense with Larry Craig, with a somewhat jaundiced eye.  Personally, my estimate is that he has approximately 48 hours to be a senator.  Perhaps decision will occur over the weekend to be effective on Monday, but I tend to doubt it. Part of his problem, at this point, is that he […]

I made a change in the way WordPress handles text formats last night. at that time, everything looked OK.  After coming home from work this afternoon I noticed a number of things I was dissatisfied with. I’ve changed it back.  Hope that didn’t cause any confusion.

Captain Ed’s questions, this morning seem reasonable: Right at the beginning of the post, I’m going to state that I find Larry Craig’s conduct in the Minneapolis-St Paul Airport reprehensible. I find his conduct during his arrest even more so, obviously trying to intimidate the arresting officer by giving him the Senate business card. Looking […]

McQ passes something interesting: Look like a bit of a breakthrough at Purdue: Researchers at Purdue University have further developed a technology that could represent a pollution-free energy source for a range of potential applications, from golf carts to submarines and cars to emergency portable generators. The technology produces hydrogen by adding water to an […]

Billy; I’ve debated for a good 10 minutes if I should say this to you or not. Took another 15 minutes to get the words close enough to send: I envy you on the new guitar. Not because someone gave it to you, not because of it’s relative worth, not because you have such friends…(which, […]
