New blog category: “stupidia academia”

Wednesday, November 30th, 2005

We’ve written extensively in this blog on the insanity going on in American colleges and universities, and today we introduce a new category for this genre: stupidia academia. Check in frequently for humorous and depressing stories from the leftist utopia of “academia”. For example, in the last few days, we’ve followed the story of a […]

Our Troops Must Stay

Tuesday, November 29th, 2005

Our Troops Must Stay is the article by Senator Joseph Lieberman that everyone is talking about today, and for good reason. As I wrote last week, Lieberman is one of a handful of Democratic politicians who actually “get it”. Some highlights of his exceptional report from Iraq: I have just returned from my fourth trip […]

Poor Cindy

Tuesday, November 29th, 2005

Photo on Yahoo of psycho Cindy’s book signing. Actually, I would like a signed copy of her book so I could sell it on ebay. Note to Cindy: You may have more luck in San Francisco or Paris (where the “disaffected youths” may spare your book from the bonfire) . Here’s the link with this […]

You can’t hide them Lyin’ Times

Monday, November 28th, 2005

Thanks to powerlineblog for this tip: The estimable editors of the New York Sun have a far higher threshold for pain than we do. They are able not only to continue reading New York Times columnist Frank Rich, but also have the patience to subject his columns to the critical examination they merit. Don’t miss […]

The speech President Bush should give about Iraq.

Sunday, November 27th, 2005

James Q. Wilson has a speech that President Bush would be wise to imitate. The thrust of the speech is simple — we are winning in Iraq — and the conclusion that we must finish the job is obvious. Nonetheless, the Cindy-libs in Congress and the MSM still wield enormous influence, and their naive, utopian […]

No hype needed: Saddam, al-Qaida linked

Saturday, November 26th, 2005

In No hype needed: Saddam, al-Qaida linked Victor Davis Hanson itemizes a laundry list of relationships between Saddam’s Iraq and al Qaeda and points out, that despite bouts of amnesia amongst the Democrats, there is nothing new or seriously disputed about the evidence of these relationships. (UPDATE: Also check out Powerlineblog’s comments on Hanson’s article.) […]

Leftist Professor “Cuts and Runs”

Thursday, November 24th, 2005

A quick followup to our story on the leftist professor who (1) called on troops to kill their superiors and (2) attempted to intimidate a student by calling her a fascist (among other things): Professor Daly has resigned his teaching post at Warren County Community College. One disturbing aspect of this story is the initial […]

Lieberman — a Zell Miller Democrat

Thursday, November 24th, 2005

Senator Joseph Lieberman — one of a dwindling minority of Democrats (such as Zell Miller and Ed Koch) who understands the threat of Islamofascism — on Wednesday reassured the Iraqi president that the US won’t cut and run from Iraq but will finish the job. (AP) U.S. Sen. Joseph Lieberman told Iraq’s prime minister Wednesday […]

Nowhere To Go

Wednesday, November 23rd, 2005

You’ll enjoy Nowhere To Go by Christopher Hitchens on the political psychobabble concerning Iraq. Hitchens welcomes a real debate on the War and is tired of the posturing and “taunting” going on now. As he puts it, “The Iraq debate does not need to become less rude or less intense. It needs to become much […]

John O’Neill: Let’s not “Kerry” our troops

Tuesday, November 22nd, 2005

Michelle Malkin has an excerpt from John O’Neill’s opinion piece in the New York Sun against “Kerrying” our troops. Malkin provides this snippet: Are the politicians like Mr. Kerry who led the campaign to send our kids to war (when it was popular) now to withdraw support while they are locked in combat and apparently […]

Senate adopts ‘exit strategy’ from reality

Monday, November 21st, 2005

Mark Steyn is at it again with Senate adopts ‘exit strategy’ from reality. A busy time in the U.S. Senate, the “world’s greatest deliberative body.” Judging from the 2006 conference report, the Senate subcommittee on Labor, Health and Human Services and Education — Chairman Arlen Specter (R), ranking member Tom Harkin (D) — has been […]

Leftist professor: American troops should kill superior officers

Monday, November 21st, 2005

While listening to the “Sean Hannity Radio Show” late last week, I heard an unbelievable story from a young woman named Rebecca Beach of the Young America’s Foundation. A freshman at Warren County Community College (WCCC) in Washington, New Jersey, Rebecca sent an e-mail to the faculty of the college announcing the visit of Lt. […]

Sheep in People’s clothing

Monday, November 21st, 2005

This letter was published in the Opinion section of a local Athens, Georgia paper. It is a response to a letter from a man who, after boasting of being a lifelong Democrat, blasted Republicans over nothing in particular. In other words, he typified the lack of logic and reasoning of lifelong Democrats. So, if you’ve […]

Bad laws should be broken

Sunday, November 20th, 2005

Thought of the day: We cannot, by total reliance on law, escape the duty to judge right and wrong…. There are good laws and there are occasionally bad laws, and it conforms to the highest traditions of a free society to offer resistance to bad laws, and to disobey them. — Alexander Bickel

Early skirmish in the Eurabian civil war

Tuesday, November 15th, 2005

Mark Steyn has chimed-in on the “nightly Paris car-B-Q” in Early skirmish in the Eurabian civil war. Steyn’s articles are the print equivalent of “one stop shopping” — informative and hilarious at the same time, and this essay is no exception. For example, consider this rather hilarious passage: Mr Debré, a close pal of President […]

Five questions for Muslims

Monday, November 14th, 2005

Thanks to for the following (click on the link for more information). These questions courtesy of Dennis Prager. To any Muslims reading this blog: why the silence? Terrorists are hi-jacking Islam with their words and actions, and you — in your silence — are defaulting on the trademark. Speak up or lose it forever. […]

The free market’s fair-weather friends

Sunday, November 13th, 2005

Please read The free market’s fair-weather friends by Paul Jacob on the grandstanding, overpaid Senators from both parties who apparently think the free market should only be free during the “good times”. Jacob notes Socialist Senator Boxer’s threat: Senator Barbara Boxer decided that the moment called not for learned discourse but class warfare. She hauled […]

French raise terror alert level

Friday, November 11th, 2005

This from Boortz: AP and UPI reported today that the French government announced that it has raised its terror alert level from “Run” to “Hide.” The only two higher levels in France are “Collaborate” and “Surrender”. The raise was precipitated by a recent fire which destroyed France’s white flag factory, thereby disabling its military. Heh, […]

Why Japan Needs The US (and why we need Japan)

Wednesday, November 9th, 2005

According to Fox News, Japan scrambled fighter jets 30 times in the last 6 months to turn away Chinese jets approaching Japanese airspace. Given its history and its thuggish neighborhood, it is not surprising that Japan is a steadfast ally of the United States. The Japanese have good reason to fear communist China. The Chinese […]
