“The Internet is in danger,” Wolfgang Kleinwächter, professor for Internet policies at Aarhus University, It is really a surprise that nations will attempt to regulate the Internet? Every national government and their sub-units already regulate every aspect of human activity. Every imaginable form of taxation follows the regulating. National war departments have always attempted to [...]
YAY!! We beat the Chinese in Olympic medals, something we never could do to the USSR. How exciting how thrilling! Course we drove the Soviet Union into a bankruptcy that ultimately toppled it. Now China owns trillions of dollars of our National Debt. How do you say “he who laughs last” in Chinese?
Powerline has an excellent look at Gov. Romney’s tour through Isreal and his speech there. http://www.powerlineblog.com/archives/2012/07/our-enduring-alliance.php If there is anything purely about principle in American politics today it is Republican support of Israel. Now I am both a Republican and Jewish; so I can tell you it is a very lonely description. No Republican [...]
I loved Sally Kimball. Yes I know the books were called Encyclopedia Brown. But I was in it for Sally, the tough, tomboy taking on the neighborhood bullies, so her brainy friend could solve his cases in peace. I especially loved it when Sally would solve the crimes herself, brains and brawn you had [...]
Victor Davis Hanson drags conservatives away from their ridiculous calling-defeat-a-victory party and throws them into a cold shower. It is the erudite Professor at his very best: http://www.nationalreview.com/corner/304411/not-so-good-news-victor-davis-hanson As for me: after 2008 I will never again underestimate the American voters taste for other people’s money.
Instapundit has been linking to a lot of stories about prejudice against Mormons: http://pjmedia.com/instapundit/144097/ I must say though, I can actually understand having negative feelings about Mormons. After all a Mormon murdered Robert Kennedy because of his support for Israel. The Olympic games became an armed camp because of the Momons who killed the [...]
http://www.politico.com/news/stories/0512/76799.html You are wasting your time hating Chris Hayes for his comments on the soldiers who defend his freedom. He is being honest. He is stating outright what every liberal I know thinks, but no liberal wants to go on television and tell the world. Soldiers are heroes when they follow Obama’s orders but [...]
If you aren’t reading Caroline Glick, the internet is wasted on you. http://www.jewishworldreview.com/0412/glick042012.php3
So the Brit at NR http://www.nationalreview.com/corner/296004/derb-and-discourse-john-osullivan has joined the Canadian at NR http://www.nationalreview.com/corner/295591/re-derb-mark-steyn in condemming the firing of John Derbyshire. That’s not surprising. Canada and Great Britain have jettisoned free speech for Political Correctness. Mark Steyn was actually prosecuted for committing the heinous offense of writing his opinions in public. Of course they would take threats to free excerisice of speech more seriously; [...]
Many are shocked to discover that a black President has made race relations worse in this country. http://pjmedia.com/instapundit/140594/ I predicted this four years ago. It is not the color of the President’s skin that matters it is the content of his politics. Liberals have been dividing this country up for so long I can’t imagine [...]
No, sorry if I got your hopes up I am not converting, I am taking a stand for Liberty, the First Amendment, for whatever shreds of The Constitution are left in this country. The Secretary of Health and Human Services as decreed that the Catholic church will surrender it’s principles in the name of the god [...]
Instapundit linked to a story about the green jobs boondogle in Newsweek http://www.thedailybeast.com/newsweek/2011/10/16/obama-s-green-energy-agenda-flop.html The article does it’s cheery liberal best to call the boondoggle a worthy experiement. But the best part is the closting quote by my very own Senator Barbara brainless Boxer “There’s always a risk when you fund innovation, but if we abandoned [...]
Instapundit made me explode again today. http://pajamasmedia.com/instapundit/127073/ I was so outraged I sent him a letter and while composing it I figured the answer to why I despise libertarians so much more than liberals. This is my letter to Prof. Reynolds. Cutting spending 43% and getting social issues off the GOP platform works for you? [...]
From Barnes & Nobles, I downloaded the sample of Mark Steyn’s newest book, After America: Get Ready for the Armageddon, It is a nasty remembrance of the mess humankind keeps getting itself into constantly throughout its history. Some quotes from it: “There is the moral of all human tales; ‘tis but the same rehersal of [...]
“I keep thinking that insanity is a state where a person can’t tell what’s real. Well what’s real now is insane and if I accepted it as real, I’d have to lose my mind wouldn’t I?” Eddie Willers in Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand Yes I admit it I succumbed to peer pressure; I read [...]
So the Sec. of Energy has decided its the government’s job to forbid the American consumer from wasting their money. http://www.nationalreview.com/corner/271470/light-motif-mark-steyn Well if the government must ban wastes of money I suggest he start with , DVDs of the 2nd Star Wars trilogy, tickets to any movie with a numeral in the title or starring Sean [...]
We are being constantly informed that same sex marriage will not lead to legalizing polygamy or any other derivation of marriage. I do not know why. Over at PJTV.com Vodkapundit called for legalizing polygamy. He didn’t know that was what he was doing. But in an episode of Trifecta he said that marriage should be only [...]
