Communists For Kerry and Che-Mart

Tuesday, July 19th, 2005

Political satire expressed through great spoof web sites is one of life’s pleasures. I don’t know how I’ve missed them, but these sites are well done and hilarious. Someone put a lot of time and effort into the graphics, stories, ads, and more. First, check out Communists For Kerry. This is great fun! From the […]

The Road to Hell is Paved with Good Intentions

Monday, July 18th, 2005

I recently wrote about how Righteousness Comes Cheap to wealthy rock stars who think the government should seize more money from American taxpayers to send to Africa. Does anyone seriously think that “this time” all of the woes of that resource-rich continent will finally be solved? I am beyond tired of these “musicians” turned foreign […]

Cartoon on the Flag

Thursday, July 14th, 2005

Hot on the heals of my slamming Republican Senator Orrin Hatch of Utah, I found this cartoon on the notoriously leftist daily kos website. The original can be found here. Yeah, it’s making fun of Southern Rednecks (no way they’re from Utah) who voted for Bush, but I still think it’s hilarious. Plus, it makes […]

The Lame Blame Game

Thursday, July 14th, 2005

Don’t miss this outstanding article in Time magazine,… Why That’s Ridiculous by Charles Krauthammer on the knee-jerk tendency of some people to blame ANY terrorist attack in the world on the US action in Iraq. Expect this reflexive, mindless rubbish to continue. But the chief arguments — Iraq was a distraction, and Iraq increased terrorists […]

Orrin Hatch — God Help Us All

Thursday, July 14th, 2005

Earlier today I listened to an interview with Utah Senator Orrin Hatch on the Sean Hannity show. They were discussing the upcoming battle over the President’s Supreme Court nomination to replace retiring Justice Sandra Day O’Connor and the importance of getting a true conservative on the Court given the Supreme blunders of the last 50 […]

Bush Whackin’

Wednesday, July 13th, 2005

In today’s National Review Online, Mark Levin has an excellent article on why, with respect to the upcoming Supreme Court nominations, President Bush had damned well better listen to his conservative base instead of the bunch of liberal back-stabbers he inexplicably continues to befriend. This issue is just too important, and any capitulation to the […]

Court has gone completely Mental

Tuesday, July 12th, 2005

I received this note from a friend, reacting to the article, Sentence First, Verdict Later by Horace Cooper. “Just one more argument that the Supreme Court has gone completely whacky without even consistency to their follies” Well said. From the article: It boils down to this: today’s Supreme Court believes protecting intangible property is so […]

UMC — United Methodist Communists

Thursday, July 7th, 2005

I read that the United Methodist Church had passed a resolution against the private ownership of guns, so I decided to try and verify this. Sure enough, I found the resolution on the UMC website. It’s a little old (1996), but as far as I can tell it is still the UMC position on gun […]

Free Beethoven

Sunday, July 3rd, 2005

OK, I love classical music. And jazz, rock, folk, country and just about everything else but modern, top 40 cruft. But this is not about me, this is about Beethoven. Beethoven’s symphonies 6-9, as performed by the BBC Philharmonic under Gianandrea Noseda, are available for free, legal download, but only for a very short time. […]

favicon and Janice Rogers Brown

Saturday, July 2nd, 2005

Notice the little icons (images) on your tabs bar? Or, the icon preceding the URL? That small image is called a favicon. I’m playing around with them, and my first choice is a photo of Justice Janice Rogers Brown: I’ve used her as an icon because, well, she is an icon (and a southchild — […]

Socialist New York Times

Saturday, July 2nd, 2005

Jacob Sullum’s Hail Seizers! reveals the popularity of socialist thought at The New York Times. As expected, the NYT is giddy and elated about the Supreme Court blunder in Kelo v. New London in which it was affirmed that private property rights no longer exist in the United States. Socialism, one. Individualism, zero. Sullum notes: […]
