I always said it would happen. Noel Sheppard at Newsbusters: As irrefutable evidence mounts that Nobel Laureate Al Gore’s climate alarmism is about nothing other than lining his supposedly green pockets with green currency, manmade global warming skeptics around the world wonder when the former vice president’s house of cards will collapse. Without question, if […]

Just a concept I want to capture. Think of this what you will; With all the progress that’s been happening in Iraq of late, the last refuge of the left is to complain that the Iraqi federal government there doesn’t have it’s act together. While that’s true in large degree, it’s also beside the point.  […]

A little old man shuffled slowly into an ice cream parlor and pulled himself slowly, painfully, up onto a stool.. After catching his breath, he ordered a banana split. The waitress asked kindly, “Crushed nuts?” “No,” he replied, “Arthritis.”

McQ at Q&O: I have to say, this is an unexpected development. In a rare attack on Iran’s president, Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, a hardline newspaper has accused him of behaving immorally towards his political rivals. The Islamic Republic daily, close to Iran’s supreme leader, Ayatollah Khamenei, has said Mr Ahmadinejad’s behaviour is dangerous for Iran. The […]

The Daily Mail Heather Mills McCartney claimed she is being treated worse than a paedophile and murderer by the media. She also insisted the wealthy elite are either snobs or stingy but maintained it was necessary to move in their circles to bring about change. Ah, yes, the Vegans strike again. I’m firmly convinced that […]

Anyone have any idea why both the third world countries I just visited offered excellent airport baggage service, while JFK took over an hour to offload my bag? Oh, come on, Megan…   I mean, look, I’m a fan of your stuff, and I agree the management/union situation at our airports has made life there […]

An amusing article, from Gene Lyons, which was reprinted in the Northwest Arkansas News this morning… It’s no exaggeration to say that the establishment media’s initial response to the blogosphere was panic. The idea of mere citizens talking back to the press was unsettling to Washington media celebrities. Pundits who’d exhibited no qualms about the […]

Being a railfan this one caught my interest: PARIS, Nov. 21 — As a national transit strike stretched into its second week, arsonists disrupted high-speed train service on four main routes on Wednesday. Government officials called the fires a “coordinated act of sabotage.” The early morning outbreak of fires on the electrical lines supplying the […]

I don’t see what Maggie is so surprised about. Europe is the continent that brought you papal infallibility, the divine right of kings, nationalism, fascism, communism, and so on and so on. Europe’s faith in big solutions by big institutions claiming unlimited power is nothing new. [link adeed] Stephen Green, Vodka Pundit. On this Thanksgiving […]

Caprice Hollins, is called, for some strange reason,  director of Equity, Race & Learning Support, for Seatttle schools.   Yet Hollins has some strange ideas about equality.   Hollins sent home with Seattlle’s students her ‘Myths of ‘The First Thanksgiving.’”‘  Yet the Seattle schools director of equality seems to think that bashing Europeans somehow constitutes equaliy.

Just some thoughts on this Thanksgiving day. Perhaps some of you are unaware of the origins of this day being set aside as a national day of Thanksgiving. Also, you may not know that Ol’ Ben Franklin wanted to make the Turkey the national bird, thinking the Eagle a bird of Bad moral character, a […]
