Get it while the gettin’s good

Wednesday, January 31st, 2007

(Hat tip: HR) We’ve written a lot on global warming, and one of the themes that we’ve highlighted is the problem with “scientific consensus.” Author Michael Crichton wrote this great speech on that very topic. Here’s another essay that presents several examples of how scientific consensus is an easy bandwagon to jump on…until the consensus […]

Posthumous Nobel Peace Prize

Tuesday, January 30th, 2007

(HT: Little Green Footballs) Listen to the words of the relatives of the bastard who initiated the recent homicide attack in Israel: “Bomber’s brother: We’re happy Muhammad is the hero.” Despite Israel’s success in defending itself against these attacks, the Palestinian Death Cult is alive and well. “The whole family was very happy when it […]

Kick-the-can politics

Monday, January 29th, 2007

Read Mark Steyn on the real energy crisis. The other day I was reading an account of the latest genius idea from Britain. The carbon emission-trading system imposed by Kyoto is absurd and entirely ineffectual, but in London David Cameron now wants to apply it to hamburgers. Over there, a Big Mac costs three bucks […]

The Blue Pigeon

(A big thanks to GPBurdell for this one.) The mayor of Phoenix was very worried about a plague of pigeons in Phoenix. The mayor could not remove the pigeons from the city. All of Phoenix was full of pigeon poop. The people of Phoenix couldn’t walk on the sidewalks or drive on the roads. It […]

Wednesday, January 24th, 2007

“Nuremberg for global warming skeptics?” is the latest column by Walter Williams on the scare tactics employed by the Global Warmers in order to exert control of our lives.

Australian Sheikh’s Family Values

Tuesday, January 23rd, 2007

Aussie Sheik Feiz Mohamed Back in October of 2006, we noted this speech given by “the highest Australian Islamic leader, Sheikh Taj Din Al” in which he elaborates on a metaphor in which “uncovered women” are “uncovered meat” and are thus responsible for rape. Well, there’s more going on Down Under. Here’s a story from […]

Chavez: “Give it to me, buddy”

Monday, January 22nd, 2007

“Give it to me, buddy,” says Venezuelan strongman Hugo Chavez. Or he’ll seize it. As we’ve predicted, the demise of Venezuela into a socialist, Marxist hell-hole is accelerating as Chavez, not content nationalizing private corporations, is now seizing individual holdings in order to “give to the poor.” We’re just waiting for Hugo to announce that […]

Chavez to US: “Go to hell, gringos!”

Monday, January 22nd, 2007

Venezuelan thug Hugo Chavez sure is a thin-skinned, insecure little dictator considering the complete consolidation of power that he has managed. During his first appearance in five months on his weekly radio and television show, Chavez told American officials to “Go to hell, gringos!” President Hugo Chavez told U.S. officials to “Go to hell, gringos!” […]

History Channel Hit Piece, Take 2

Thursday, January 18th, 2007

A few weeks back, I posted “My Letter to the History Channel” criticizing the program “Last Days on Earth” for deriding scientists who dare question the mass-media sensation, “Global Warming.” My letter, posted at The History Channel Forums, generated some great responses pointing out numerous flaws in the program and concurring that the name-calling and […]

Thursday, January 18th, 2007

Fidel Castro with his concubines. Wow. Don’t miss this great essay, “Castro Shuffling in Place” by Emmett Tyrrell at today’s Tyrrell notes that Castro’s bungling and suffering are a fitting — and final — poetic justice. In these last months of Fidel Castro’s moribundity, there is delicious irony in the film clip of him […]

Male while White: Guilty!

Wednesday, January 17th, 2007

In a nutshell, this is how the modern lynching machine functions: Between a perverse form of liberation feminism that sanctifies strippers, prostitutes and porn stars — and a dogma of victimology that places blame for all things at the feet of the white patriarchy — the players were instantaneously presumed guilty by virtue of their […]
