If your sole experience with Starship Troopers has come in movie form, then this won’t make any sense. I also pity you. A lot. Seriously, go read the book. It’s a relatively thin paperback. It won’t take long and chances are very good that you’ll like it. And you’ll always harbor at least a tiny […]

This is an interesting article. The Dallas Police raided an apartment, found a “cache” of weapons which included a couple rifes, a couple sub-machine guns, and a couple grenade launchers along with a pile of ammunition (oh, and some child porn, too). The apartment was next to a federal building in Dallas. But there’s no […]

…but our Military kills terrorists everywhere! Note how we combined weapons from nearly every armed service we have to kills the terrorists no matter where they went. Looks like only the Coast Guard didn’t get in on the action. Makes for a great recruiting slogan, doesn’t it? Join al-Qaeda and Fight the Infidels in Iraq! […]

Washington, DC vs The Constitution

It’s a crying shame that the government of Washington, D.C. is spending my tax money to take a chunk out of the Constitution. I mean, it’s one thing for the D.C. Government to admit that when it comes to handling the basic necessities such as fighting crime, it’s been a forty-year joke. It’s quite another […]

There’s word going ’round today that some dink has put some or all of the newest Harry Potter book online. I can tell you that there are a few web pages that have printed some big spoilers, at the very least. I’ve seen a couple myself (the pages, not the spoilers). I don’t know if […]

Shamus Young has an interesting little thread going on his always-entertaining “Twenty-Sided” blog. He asks if you think you would have survived the Middle Ages? Think about it. Would you, with the maladies and injuries you’ve suffered in your life, have made it through to the ripe old age of 30? Have the marvels of […]

I wonder if he was sitting on a veranda drinking sweet tea when this happened: Joe Wilson just endorsed Hillary during an ongoing conference call with liberal bloggers. Wilson just said that “she is the one candidate in my judgment who understands the need to get America out of harm’s way,” and into a “political […]
