    It’s Not Our Fault

    “You’re just trying to put this on us so it’s not your fault.” Unintentionally, Rahm Emanuel just summed up the governing philosphy of the Obama Administration. The quote is from Bob Woodwards new book on the current occupiers of the White House. Rahm is talking to Dennis Blair, then the national intelligence director, when Blair warns him about the need to do more to stop | Read More »

    Short, fluff post on Sexism

    Im breaking rules, and I apologize. I should have looked for an open thread. Yesterday, the Canadian Womens Hockey team beat the American Womens Hockey team and won the gold medal. Hockey is a big deal up here, mens or womens, and particular, in Calgary, as most of the women train here. You dont diss the womens hockey in Canada, unless your looking for a fight. The Canadian | Read More »

    On Meeting a Hero

    My father, brother, and I were coming home from a trip to Ontario and were in the Calgary airport waiting for our bags. While standing around the baggage dispenser we saw a veteran. A bomber pilot. Now in Canada there had been much handwringing at the time (about 2 or 3 years ago) about how the Heroes who risked their lives to take the fight | Read More »

    Israel Airstrikes Gaza

    Not a lot for me to add other than Israel is about 3000 Hamas fired rockets too late. Also Ill point out the obligatory: “The strikes caused widespread panic and confusion in Gaza, as black clouds of smoke rose above the territory, ruled by Hamas for the past 18 months. Some of the Israeli missiles struck in densely populated areas as children were leaving school, | Read More »

    On Pakistan

    Oh boy. <A HREF=”http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worldnews/asia/pakistan/3688288/Pakistan-Were-ready-for-war-with-India.html”>Pakistan is bat crazy.</A> People, lets take a step back, shall we? India was just attacked. It was attacked by a group with the implicit backing of the ISI, Pakistans secret (police) service. The ISI has often been described as an army within an army, or as a state within a state. Regardless, the ISI is a branch of the government, that | Read More »

    On Palin

    Obama campaigned on tax cuts. Thats our turf. Democrats win when they run as Republicans. This suggestion that Palin hurt the ticket is then exposed for the misguided death whine of the liberal republican wing that it is. The good thing for my cause, that is, the conservative, cause, is that we ran your moderate, and he lost. He lost Florida to a guy who | Read More »

If you can get through the shrill tone of hysteria that the writer tries with some effort to have permeate the story, you should be able to get to the crux of the matter. Iraq | Read More »

Socialism isnt some ok thing. Its evil. It changes habits of thoughts. Look at the people of the former Soviet slave states. Hungary is famous for the fact that Communism (which | Read More »
