No Shat Sherlock, TSA grope down will kill people.  Just the facts Ma’am.  As driving is much more dangerous than flying, anything which discourage air travel and motivates people to drive, actually costs lives, from Hill: As the nation readies for one of the busiest traveling holidays, Steven Horwitz, a professor of economics at St. […]

There is no moral imperative driving this message, tonight — no calls for a life of self sacrifice, no direct calls for intensive reflection this night, not even a real punch line of the story.  I will let you decide if these thoughts call for that. Tonight, I’m thinking back…. decades gone by, in fact. […]

Edtor’s note: Once again as in years past, I’ve found my inbox filled with messages from longtime readers who wonder if I’m going to be re-posting “A Bithead’s Christmas”, and begging me to do so. As I believe I’ve told you in previous years, I get more email about this one single post, these 2900 […]

Welcome one and all to the most intense nightly read anywhere on the ‘sphere… BitsBlog’s Nightly Ramble. Lot’s of last minute stuff to get in before the holiday. Let’s get to it. I’m hearing they’re starting to ask Chris Dodd about his dealings with Countrywide. What burns me is this guy will likely get away […]

I have to tell you, folks, after a few days of playing with themes for WordPress, I’m disappointed. As developed, the theme we’re using here… Originally called “Boxy But Gold” (Details and contact links in the page footer) needed a little work to fit in with what we’re doing here at BitsBlog.  In the end […]

OK, with the holidays, I freely admit being horribly behind in my reading.. Sister Toldjah, just before Christmas: I read this blogpost by Michelle Malkin this morning about a fanatical black woman shouting down white people during an angry New Orleans city council hearing last week in which a debate was held about razing public […]

A thank you note from Kyle-Anne Shiver, American Thinker to our troops: One of the most gratifying things of all is that they know we love them and that we care about every single hair upon their heads in harms way.  They have a sense of our prayers and our genuine concern for their welfare.  Their […]

I wanted to pass along a couple of pictures that were passed along to me by readers last year. I never got the chance to use them last season because I didn’t see them until well after new year’s. But now seems as good a time as any to post them. in case you don’t […]

[sticky till 12/26] Editor’s Note: This is a time of year when I don’t envy the position of members of the cloth. Such men and women find themselves in the position of having to write a sermon on essentially the same message every year while making that message sound fresh. It’s not an easy thing […]

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. Not […]

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 […]

The Washington Post: Maryland lawmakers early this morning passed about $1.4 billion in annual tax increases and a public referendum on legalizing 15,000 slot machines as a far-reaching special session of the General Assembly hurtled to a close. Passage of the bills is intended to solve two long-festering issues: chronic budget problems created by passing […]
