Pick an Economic Strategy, Mr. President

Pick an Economic Strategy, Mr. President

Mark Steyn has drilled down to the real reason we’re still stuck in a recession we should have been climbing out of months ago. Functioning societies depend on agreed rules. If you want to open a business, you do it in Singapore or Ireland, because the rules are known to all parties. You don’t go […]

What To Do With Wikipedia

What To Do With Wikipedia

I got an e-mail from long-time reader and fairly new blogger Paul at Comic Nut’s Jar (conservative politics, comic books, and metal? Nice!) asking that I pass along his latest post. Paul has grievances against Wikipedia and he thinks we conservatives who relish fair play should look for other sources of information to link. I […]

Which Way Did The Puck Go, George?

I don’t know what part of this clip is more funny: how Thrashers goalie Johann Hedberg attempted to make the save or what happened to him after he blocked the puck. Puck Daddy summed it up very nicely, though. The only comparison we can make is when you’re putting on a shirt at an odd […]

Is There Any Honest Global Warming Evidence?

Is There Any Honest Global Warming Evidence?

| January 29, 2010 | 6 Replies

It is possible that all the evidence supporting anthropogenic global warming is bogus? The President Wednesday night cited “the overwhelming evidence on climate change” but when I look around I find that evidence is no evidence at all. I do see claims that have either been fraudulently manufactured or misrepresented as actual science when they are nothing more […]

Great Mysteries in the News (or, All Those Terrorists, and No Place to Try Them!)

Sometimes, when I read the news, I come across a story that asks a question so puzzling that I am, well, puzzled. Take this one, for instance. “White House orders Justice Department to look for other places to hold 9/11 terror trial” The White House ordered the Justice Department on Thursday night to consider other places […]

It’s been a while since I gave one of Stacy McCain’s posts some undivided attention here and this post on the opening of a new Planned Parenthood office in Massachusetts paid for with your money and mine, is a pretty good one. He notes that even though that office is precluded from directly providing abortions […]

The State of the Union After “The State of the Union” is Unimpressed

As promised, I didn’t watch President Obama’s State of the Union address last night but I did read the speech today and spent a bit of my lunch hour seeing what others said about the speech. Without unpacking the whole speech, which would probably take five or six separate posts, I’ll share a couple basic impressions: 1) […]

What are three things that folks say are supposed to be good for me to which I refuse to subject myself, Alex? *dingdingdingding* While others are taking the mental battering of Barack Obama giving his third, yes third, nationally-televised speech before a joint session of Congress in a little over a year, I will be […]

I really need a friend who: a) can knit, and b) has the time and inclination to make this incredibly cool ski mask for me. Why, you may ask, do I need a Cthulhu ski mask? What a silly question! You will be the first to be devoured! *Translation**: In his house at R’lyeh dead […]
