The Experiment is Underway — Two Perspectives

Thursday, August 18th, 2005

As everyone is now aware, Israel is forcibly pulling settlers out of the Gaza Strip as they evacuate the area and turn it over to the Palestinians. I recently wrote about this Great Experiment, referencing an essay on the subject by Daniel Pipes, a Mideastern expert and author. Western opinion is divided on how this […]

Ann Coulter on Cindy Sheehan

Thursday, August 18th, 2005

Finally, someone has put Cindy Sheehan in perspective. With a sensitive topic like this, it should come as no surprise that it took Ann Coulter to do the deed. Thanks, Ann. Here’s a sample: Fortunately, the Constitution vests authority to make foreign policy with the president of the United States, not with this week’s sad […]

Scandal? What scandal?

Wednesday, August 17th, 2005

What scandal? That would certainly be your response if you only get news from the MSM — the alphabet soup TV networks and the major newspapers in this country. But, since you’re reading this, you are likely aware of the scandal involving the Air America radio network receiving “questionable” loans from a children’s charity in […]

The Credit Card Prank, Part II

Tuesday, August 16th, 2005

This guy, who calls himself the king of dot-comedy, is seriously funny. More accurately, he is a professional prankster. As an example, you’ve got to check out The Credit Card Prank, Part II. I’ve always wondered if anybody in the universe really cares how you sign your credit card receipts. Quick answer: Nope. I’m going […]

Space Aliens Invade, Mistreated

Monday, August 15th, 2005

From the Vault: I wrote this over a month ago after listening to one-too-many pity pieces on the murderers vacationing at Gitmo. It is presented here raw and unedited and reveals that I was cracking under the MSM bombardment… Then came 7/7. ——————————— Space Aliens Invade, Mistreated Monday, July 4, 2005 LONDON, UK — Three […]

Washington Post Piles on NARAL

Saturday, August 13th, 2005

You know NARAL has stepped in it big-time when even the leftist, Washington Post editorial page slams the blatantly dishonest ad against Judge Roberts. From the editorial: In releasing the ad, Nancy Keenan, NARAL’s president, said in a statement that she wanted “to be very clear that we are not suggesting Mr. Roberts condones or […]

Moron Messes with Michelle Malkin

Friday, August 12th, 2005

If you don’t read Michelle Malkin’s blog on a daily basis then you are missing out. She is a wonderful writer who digs up some amazing stories. Yesterday, she wrote a piece on the confused Bush protestor, Cindy Sheehan — the woman camped out in Crawford, Texas who is receiving more MSM coverage than the […]

NARAL pulls blatantly false ad

Friday, August 12th, 2005

This morning, Fox News is reporing that NARAL is withdrawing its false ad against Judge John Roberts. That’s a very mild way of saying that the abortion rights advocacy group has been caught in an embarrassing lie and is now recanting. NARAL president Nancy Keenan, in a letter to RINO (Republican In Name Only) Senator […]

NARAL, an abortion-rights advocacy group, has been caught in an outright, dirty LIE about President Bush’s Supreme Court nominee, Judge John Roberts. Those who support abortion rights […]

August 15 — The Israeli Experiment

Tuesday, August 9th, 2005

The answer is coming soon. Starting on Aug. 15, the Israeli government will evict some 8,000 Israelis from Gaza and turn their land over to the Palestinian Authority. In addition to being a unique event in modern history (no other democracy has forcibly uprooted thousands of its own citizens of one religion from their lawful […]

Deferred Success

Tuesday, August 9th, 2005

Deferred Success is the title of Mark Steyn’s recent essay on redefining away the concept of “failure” and what the American icon of failure — the Democratic Party — has learned from this. In typical Steyn fashion, “Deferred Success” is a gut-splitting commentary on recent, hard-to-believe utterances of desperation from the increasingly marginalized Democrats. On […]

Mad Max — Eminently Strange Bedfellows

Sunday, August 7th, 2005

Please read this Great article on the eminent domain fallout. I especially like the next to last sentence: She says that the Court has done the property-rights cause an unintentional favor by highlighting takings for private use that have been going on for a long time without much public notice. I’ve argued the same, ironic […]

What Business Can Learn from Open Source

Thursday, August 4th, 2005

I’ve always enjoyed Paul Graham’s essays, and this essay, What Business Can Learn from Open Source, is no exception. Being both an entrepreneur (startup) and investor (venture capitalist), he is uniquely positioned to comment on how this plane of existence differs from the traditional, employee-employer relationship. Great stuff. Here’s what he has to say about […]
