http://www.returnofkings.com/33751/the-obsolete-man-the-death-of-the-american-mind A bit of brilliance at the link. The article is lengthy and a little geeky, given it draws geavily on an old ‘Twightlight Zone’ episode.  The author, however, draws a point in a fashion I’ve never quite seen before, so it is worthwhile. Note particularly the following… Imagine protesters agitating against a policy or […]

About that 2007 Obama Hamptons Video…   Here it is. I should warn you, that the draw  on the servers at the Daily Caller is apparently quite high. I’d be interested in seeing how many millions have seen the vid. I’d also give a lemon cookie for a peek at their security log. I’m willing […]

The strong-willed 9-year-old third-grader had gone to meet Giffords with a neighbor when she was shot. She died later at University […]

Some interesting thoughts on Sarah Palin’s new book…. which I happen to have started reading myself just the other day. I’ll leave Melissa’s thoughts on the book itself to her article. But she, in the process of laying the groundwork for her review,  points up something that I’ve noticed myself on the state of things […]

I have to give Bruce McQuain credit. He writes, today: I know this comes as a shock – shock I tell you – but the left is just in a tizzy today about the GOP Senate caucus’s unanimous decision not to allow anything to go forward in the Senate’s lame duck session until the tax […]

Hey, Billy: Glenn Reynolds: “Personally, I believe that ‘fairness’ consists in the fruits of my labor not being taken by corrupt hacks to redistribute to their cronies in exchange for votes.” Oh, yeah? Well, dear professor, let me only point out that ‘fairness’ consists in the fruits of my labor not being taken. <=fullstop Get […]

Jones To The Grindstone.com Adding stress to an already stressful situation is not a good idea, especially when dealing with the U.S. Army. While deployed in the desert, around a dozen men found out their wives back on the post were being investigated for a crime. What in the hell? All fun and games until… […]

Jones To The Grindstone.com Once the husband hits a high rank and supervisory status, the wife is expected to take on a new identity. The perfect military wife will make it look effortless and not complain in public. * * * Wearing the husband’s rank gets her panties in a wad… It was once described […]

Trait: The competency to raise your family alone, without extended family nearby. JonesToTheGrindstone.com I have a running list of “how to tell you’ve met a military mom.” At the top, is the tell-tale sign of finding out that every one her children was born in different states or countries. For example, my daughter was born […]

JonesToTheGrindstone.com Who created “napkin art” anyway? As I walked up the carpeted flight of stairs and choked the white enameled handrails, I wondered what in the hell I was putting myself through. Once I was at the top of the stairs, I fiddled with my rings, turning them round and round. There I was at […]

From SPOOK86 at In From The Cold: President Obama’s poll numbers are in free-fall, but he still has at least one “citizen” who ardently defends him, in the letters section of your local paper. We refer to one Ellie Light, who has published the same letting supporting Obama in at least 42 newspapers in 18 […]

Dodd Harris over at OTB makes the excellent point that: At the core, corporations are just human constructs. We invented them to further our own purposes. They exist as concepts rather than physical objects, but have no more or less moral agency than any other human invention. Just as a gun or a piece of […]

I have to admit my first reaction to these reports was one of indifference.  After all, China has been hacking into just about everybody’s computers for as long as anybody can remember. And yet, in looking at the situation a little more closely, we find out what China was really after was information about who […]
