Having attended my older son’s graduation a few days ago, I sat down upon reaching home, and started writing. Odd thing; It’s what I do, anymore. I sit down and try to capture in amber all the thoughts in my head, lest those words go away for being ignored. What you see below is the […]

Look, left-o-shere… if you’re that pissed at the Democrats in Congress over FISA and whatever else,  that you’re going to waste all our time and bandiwth with your screaming, does that mean you will be doing America a favor and not be voting fot them? And Obama, too? Yeah, didn’t think so. So, shut UP […]

Word just coming off the wires now that the USSC has ruled on In District of Columbia v. Heller, in a 5-4 ruling which strikes down Wahington DC’s 32 year old handgun ban, as being incompatible with the Second Amendment and the rights therein. As you might expect, Memeorandum has lots on this.

“$4 a gallon is the best news this country has had in a very long time. Here’s to $5. It’s the only way Americans will ever learn.” Sullivan: “The Joy Of $4 A Gallon”. It’s just wonderful that we are all blessed with such care and concern, from a man who doesn’t drive a car. […]

My older boy is graduating from High school tonight. I will doubtless blog about this further, on Sunday,  but I thought I should make note of the milestone. I’ve noted lately that they’ve been going by a bit faster. Another Honorable mention at OTB’s caption contest. From just down the road in Buffalo, comes word  […]

Consistancy, as I like to say here, is only a virtue if you’re not a total screwup. Bruce Bawer has a note today over at Pajamas Media that reminds us that the New York Times has been fairly consistant in it’s anti-American slant. In this case, the main topic is The Times and it’s slant […]

Bruce explains the reaction of Congress to our gas prices very well, indeedL Why do you suppose Congressional leaders are spending all their time blaming current oil prices on speculators, price gougers and OPEC? Because if they addressed the real problem – supply and demand – it is they who are at fault for not […]

Me at OTB just now: Every major scientific body in the entire world is on the same ‘side’ on this one. And any payola to Hansen or any influence of Gore is far outweighed by Exxon-Mobil paying for the science they want, and the Bush administration’s documented efforts to politicize science. The desperation is palpable. […]

From several sources, this morning: Barack Obama is not legally a U.S. natural-born citizen according to the law on the books at the time of his birth, which falls between “December 24, 1952 to November 13, 1986?

Hume last night: Barack Obama’s first general election ad says about 46 seconds in that the Illinois senator passed laws that “extended health care for wounded troops who’d been neglected.” The ad “Country I Love”, which was released Friday, provides a citation at the bottom of the screen which reads “Public Law 110 – 181.” […]

I see Don Imus is in trouble again. Gee, what a shock, huh? Look, let’s be honest here; PacMan Jones is about as worthless a human being as one might ever be able to contrive.  As Imus points out, he’s been arrested more often than the average street hooker, and that doesn’t account for the mjisdeeds […]

I’ve beend saying for some time now that even Obama doesn’t believe half of what he spews. I’ve also been saying that his pandering would catch up to him eventually. And, here we are, in the New York Times, this morning, we see evidence of how far this stuff has gone As Senator Barack Obama […]

Saturday, I blogged about BO’s faux presidential seal, and as did Bit earlier today.   Now Ken Wheaton, Advertising Age, reports:  “Obama Campaign Drops Faux Presidential Seal:” Last week, Barack Obama unveiled a new campaign seal — and not the kind that swims, barks and balances balls on the end of its nose. Rather, it was the […]
