The Brain is a Muscle

Wednesday, February 28th, 2007

(Hat tip: Julie) Even if you don’t have kids, this is a fascinating study and well worth reading. Not everyone is buying it, but the experiments are amazing. Here’s an excerpt from “How Not to Talk to Your Kids”. Dweck had suspected that praise could backfire, but even she was surprised by the magnitude of […]

Al Gore’s Church

An Inconvenient Power Bill

Wednesday, February 28th, 2007

Since we’re discussing the bureaucrats at The Ministry of Warming, have you heard about the energy usage at Al Gore’s mansion? Gore’s mansion, located in the posh Belle Meade area of Nashville, consumes more electricity every month than the average American household uses in an entire year, according to the Nashville Electric Service (NES). In […]

Global Bureaucracy

Wednesday, February 28th, 2007

(Hat tip: HR) Want to know what “global warming” is really about? If you thought it was about “saving the planet” from nasty humans then you may not want to read this bit of beauro-babble from EU bean counters who are as adept at “fudging the numbers” as their hired scientists: In the latest installment […]

“Imam who pleaded guilty to aiding Hamas is sentenced.” ROME, Ga. – In the days after the Sept. 11 attacks, Mohamed Shorbagi reached out to Christian and Jewish groups in this north Georgia town in an effort to promote peace and understanding.

Global Insanity

Tuesday, February 27th, 2007

It has been a big week for Al Gore and his paranoid posse of myrmidons. Now that he’s been knighted by Hollywood, Sir Al can celebrate the news from Europe that “Global warming concerns are keeping children awake at night.” Read this. It is absurd. Half of young children are anxious about the effects of […]

Left hand gives; Right hand takes away

Tuesday, February 27th, 2007

Here’s a story on the dysfunctional state of the Imperial Federal government: “Immigrants who wire money get help from the Fed” WASHINGTON — Even as the federal government is starting to crack down on companies that hire illegal immigrants, it’s been helping those same workers send money home, cheap. Dubbed Directo a Mexico, the Federal […]

Global hype

Monday, February 26th, 2007

Today’s New York Post has an article by scientist Roy W. Spencer entitled “Not That Simple. Global Warming: What We Don’t Know.” While Spencer discusses the effects of precipitation in regulating warming, the real point of his article is that our models and tools, while helpful, simply aren’t complete and reliable enough to present a […]

Ally is a lonely word

Sunday, February 25th, 2007

John Howard Being an ally of the United States these days is a bit like being a good steak: rare and costly. Mark Steyn discusses this as it relates to our two closest allies, Britain and Australia, “Blair is right on troops”. ACCORDING to my dictionary, the word “ally” comes from the Old French. Very […]

Attack of the 6 foot vagina

Friday, February 23rd, 2007

ASU’s vagina sneaks up on next victim. File this story under “too crazy to be fiction.” Leave it to UNC professor (and fellow gun-nut) Mike Adams to alert us to the “six-foot vagina costume” roaming the campus of Appalachian State University. We’re just relieved that freedom of expression is alive (if not so “well”) on […]

Mindless Zero-Tolerance at UGA

Thursday, February 22nd, 2007

Here’s a ridiculous, local story from the People’s Republic of Athens, Georgia: “Pellet gun lands UGA senior in jail on two felony charges” A University of Georgia student was arrested on weapons charges early Saturday after a UGA officer patrolling a campus parking lot spotted a recreational pellet gun in the student’s car, UGA police […]

Face of a Loser

Tuesday, February 20th, 2007

(Shamelessly lifted from lucianne) “….this guy is long past the day when he had anything but the foggiest awareness of what the heck is going on in the world.” — Brit Hume, Fox News Sunday, 1 February 2007 We concur. With “allies” like Murtha, who needs enemies?

Bleedocrats are Pond Scum

Thursday, February 15th, 2007

Bryan at has a summary of the Democrats’ “Bleed our Troops” cowardice which has been erroneously described as a “strategy” by the MSM. John Murtha, Nancy Pelosi, and the recreants who support this back-stabbing don’t possess the gonads to stand for ending the funding in Iraq. Come on, you wimps! It’s not like you’re […]

Do these Scientists Count?

Thursday, February 15th, 2007

IPCC scientists utilize the latest technology to forecast gloom and doom. Here’s Thomas Sowell’s third installment on global warming, “Global Hot Air: Part III.” This column discusses prominent climate scientists who don’t support the Chicken Little interpretations of climate change. Are there serious scientists who specialize in weather and climate who have serious doubts about […]

Homeland Parody

Wednesday, February 14th, 2007

Poor Homeland Security. Does anyone remember who we picked on before this pathetic department? Check out the parody site, This is a spoof of the site which has a series of picture “signs” so ambiguous and stupid that they make the color-coded, rainbow “alert” thing seem serious. Here are a few of our […]

Klaus vs Gore: Czech mate

Wednesday, February 14th, 2007

(Hat tip: cyclops) Drudge has this doozy of an interview on global warming with Vaclav Klaus, President of the Czech Republic. Besides Klaus’ candidness and common-sense answers, the fascinating thing about this interview is the complete and total bias of the interviewer. In her essay “Collectivized Ethics,” Ayn Rand observed that “Certain questions, which one […]

Global warming: more fizzle than sizzle

Wednesday, February 14th, 2007

If we’re not careful, all of this talk about global warming might start to generate its own heat. Already, tempers on both sides are flaring and passions are heating up. Where will it end? There is a consensus among global warming advocates that free speech is starting to taint the global warming debate and interfere […]
