Gillbrand | Read More »
Google will be hiring…
this is from Google, when you type in “Obama is a” you get this direct from the geniuses at Google… Pretty much says it all. I know this is too short to be a “real” diary, but I can’t imagine adding anything. HT to Instapundit.
Some people just don’t get it. At all.
I frequently glance at Google News headlines, just to get a flavor for what’s going on. No depth, but it’s a good quick scan to spot where things are headed by the flow of the headlines. Yesterday I hit the poster child page for what is wrong in our country. A while back there was book published called “All I Really Need to Know I | Read More »
Here’s something we won’t have to worry about for at least the next two years…
That’s former President George Bush at DFW earlier today, there to welcome home the troops. He and Laura made the trip simply out of respect for the job those in cammo do on a day-in-day-out basis. Were I a betting man, I’d be giving very long odds on TheWon™ and the FatPrincess™ EVER showing up like this. HT to Powerline…
The Sky is Falling!!! Ahhh no, it’s just
the first shoe. In an article by Chicken Little at the WaPo, they are passing off as “fact” a prognostication by a group of no-account whack jobs at the National League of Cities, the National Association of Counties and U.S. Conference of Mayors. In other words, the The National Association of Local Politicians Who are Terrified of Cutting Union Jobs or Asking Local Taxpayers for | Read More »
JD Hayworth treated for gunshot wounds…
that would be for self inflicted gunshot wounds to his feet. I noted months ago that while John McCain had a huge money advantage he really didn’t need to spend much of it to beat Hayworth. He happens to be spending lots of it, but it’s really overkill. I noted that JD’s biggest problem was his mouth. It’s big enough to hold both feet with | Read More »
A little justice is better than absolutely none.
It’s been a while, but you may remember Lynne Stewart. She’s the “lawyer version” of John Kerry – read traitor who should be hung from the nearest tree. By way of some history, Ms. Stewart is a very liberal lawyer who has a lifetime of history defending every possible anti-American cause you can imagine. And some you can’t. For the purpose of this particular story, | Read More »
Not definitive but certainly directional.
I don’t put a whole lot of stock in prognosticating on an individual poll. For one thing, I learned one absolute as an undergraduate engineering student and that was: Never, ever give a statistician your checkbook. I do pay attention to one thing about polling though, and that’s direction. And frankly, today’s entry in the McCain/Hayworth polling came as no surprise. You can find all | Read More »
Fit Meet Shan. Part Deux.
So we all know the economy still hasn’t recovered from the Bush Presidency. And hey, while we’re at it, the California economy still hasn’t recovered from Ronald Reagan’s Governorship. Or something like that. Heck, the problems in the Golden State couldn’t possibly be the result of a zillion years of legislators that would have been right home in the 1950 Duma. Or a string of | Read More »
Total Democratic Disconnect. Heh.
So, remember about, oh 16 months ago when all the big bucks pundits and editorialists were touting the death of the GOP? It even made the cover of Time, not that you’d have seen it of course, unless you’re one of the 37 people who actually subscribe to Time. Anyway, we find ourselves just four months away from reading the results of the mid-term elections | Read More »
Remember when, in 1994, Congress exempting themselves from laws…
was one of the things that drove the “Gingrich Revolution”? And as I recall, the Congress passed legislation requiring that any law or regulation that applied to us ordinary folk should apply to CongressCritters™ as well. Guess what? Yep. Oh, and you know that “Financial Reform Legislation” that TheBoyPresident™ is making such a big deal about? The 2,000 pages that nobody’s read. Yeah, that one. | Read More »
TheBoyPres gets one right on immigration…
I’m no particular fan of Arizona’s SB1070. I support it since we passed it, but I really think there are better ways to accomplish the laudable – and achievable – end of dramatically reducing the number of illegal aliens in the US and doing it in a way that reduces the probability of overturning the legislation and then having to wait out the appeals process. | Read More »
Let’s not forget that budget cuts at the state level will destroy higher education.
Let me mince no words. “Education” in the US sucks. Big time. Top to bottom. High schools spend up to $24,000 per student of public funds (DC, where else) and “graduate” kids who can’t read. I can’t remember the last time I met a cashier who could actually make change without reading the number on the cash register. And then there are the all-too-frequent stories | Read More »
Happy Fourth of July. And if you weren’t planning on drinking…
Here’s a reminder, and a really stark one at that, of just who voted for TheBoyPresident™ and his buffoons. From Rasmussen: The latest Rasmussen Reports telephone survey finds that 54% believe that the U.S. is indeed the nation with liberty and justice for all. A third (34%) disagree while 11% are not sure. However, only 38% of African-Americans believe the nation is a land of | Read More »
Heh. Fit meet Shan.
So I assume you’ve heard the news that the Obama Administration is going to file suit in Federal Court against the State of Arizona over SB1070. Gotta protect those Federal prerogatives and all that stuff. Or whatever. Well, by way of some background, we have five Democrat Congress Critters in AZ. One is Raul SomethingOrAnother who is THE most liberal Critter in DC and will | Read More »
NYT & WaPo, P1, Above the Fold!!!
17 Afghan Military Members AWOL From U.S. Air Force Base You can read the whole thing here in the Times and here in the WaPo. A nationwide alert has been issued for 17 members of the Afghan military who have gone AWOL from an Air Force base in Texas where foreign military officers who are training to become pilots are taught English… The Afghan officers | Read More »
Twenty minutes that will save the planet.
Leadership. Oops, that should be “Leadership?” So, there a world class disaster thingy going on. You’re the Leader of the Free World occupant of the White House. The disaster thingy has been going on for a while, like a month and a half, and your friends at the NYT and the WaPo have noticed that you’ve spent more time on vacation than you have chatting | Read More »
I’m at a total loss for words. Total. UPDATE! It gets even BETTER!
Watch this performance and you will be too. 1. $24,000 per pupil??????????????????????????????? WTF! 2. Pretty much all single syllable words. 3. Think anybody doesn’t know exactly where Gov. Christie stands? 4. Remember, he may be the Governor but the Legislature is dominated by the EvilParty™. 5. How can we get him to oversee spine and testosterone implants for the rest of our Governors. Did I | Read More »
So, let’s chat about the REAL world…
There’s been a whole lot of ranting about SB1070, the immigration law passed by the Arizona Legislature and signed by Governor Jan Brewer. I’m not going to bother rehashing either “public opinion” as is reflected by the roughly 70% approval ratings showing up in polling or “political opinion” reflected by “boycotts” and lawsuits. If you don’t live in a cave you know all about that | Read More »
Wanna see the face of terrorism? Here ya go…
Hat tip to HotAir… This clip of David Horowitz (who, I’m pretty sure, is one of the Elders of Zion) speaking at the University of California at San Diego. He opens the floor for questions and the head of the Muslim Students Association rises to ask a question. The video is 3:29, watch it all and then consider the questions below… Quick facts: 1.
