Touchy-Feely time in Washington

Monday, January 8th, 2007

Jeff Jacoby’s column, “Arguments left and right,” discusses how the discourse in Washington will change now that the Democrats control the House. The bigger point of his article, however, is how this change in discourse reflects the true difference in attitude and world-view between liberals and conservatives: liberals focus on idealistic “good intentions,” whereas conservatives […]

Stupid Warning Labels

Sunday, January 7th, 2007

(Hat tip: slashdot) Our favorite: A watercraft manual states, “Never use a lit match or open flame to check fuel level.” The results of The 10’th Annual Wacky Warning Label Contest are in, and this year’s results are a ridiculous collection of lawsuit-inspired absurdities. From the website: The contest, now in its tenth year, is […]

Herbert Hoover on Liberty and Government

Sunday, January 7th, 2007

Some ideas are truly timeless. Here’s an excerpt from President Herbert Hoover’s radio address to the nation on the anniversary of Lincoln’s birthday, February 12th, 1931. This part of his speech focuses on the importance of individual, not government, responsibilities in securing the liberties of a free nation. Hoover articulates the philosophy that freedom is […]

The Left Loves Castro

Saturday, January 6th, 2007

Fidel Castro and Nikita Khrushchev — two peas in a pod. Jeff Jacoby’s article last week at on Cuban dictator and mass-murderer Fidel Castro is worth reading if only for it’s short account of praises and admirations heaped-on the mass-murderer by famous emissaries of the morally-bankrupt left. We have assembled this list of Castro-gushing […]

MSM Self-Destructs

Tuesday, January 2nd, 2007

Good grief, the Mainstream Media (aka “MSM”) is disintegrating right before our very eyes. Just look at these examples: John, at powerline has this story, More Trouble for the Associated Press with this letter by Eason Jordan: If an Iraqi police captain by the name of Jamil Hussein exists, there is no convincing evidence of […]

What Freedom of Speech?

Monday, January 1st, 2007

Reader cyclops alerted us to this editorial by Mark Tapscott, the editorial page editor of The Washington Examiner, on the continuing demolition of the First Amendment to the Constitution. Thanks for nothing, John McCain and Russ Feingold. The essay, “No, You Can’t Say That …. And Forget That First Amendment Stuff,” relates the case of […]
