Democrats, Leadership, and ObamaCare
I am 43 years old with 25 stents in three major heart arteries; the American healthcare system saved my life. My stents are drug-eluting, the same state of art stents recently received by Bill Clinton. In Canada, my birth country, many are not so lucky. There, rationing, lack of innovation, and a shortage of expertise are real problems and no perversion of the truth changes | Read More »
Falklands doin’ the déjà vu shuffle
It may be hard to hear the drum of War beating over the hip-humping bleating of Lady Gaga but Britain just got a shot across its territorial bow once again by Argentina asserting control of all shipping between the contested Falklands and the Argentina coast. Argentina President Cristina Kirchner’s declaration of shipping lane control on Tuesday, February 16 constitutes the first steps towards a naval | Read More »
French to buy the White Cliffs of Dover from UK Labour government
Staggering under a national debt of £830billion ($1.245 trillion) for a nation only about the size of California with a population about twice that state’s, the UK’s Labour Prime Minister, Gordon Brown, is selling off its hard asset Dover Port to its historical arch-enemy, France, in a benighted attempt at debt reduction through privatization. Although the UK already has sold off its other major ports | Read More »
Meet the new boss, same as the old boss
Over the years I’ve always made sure to purchase the September issue of Vogue and did so for more decades than I care to admit. I finally dropped Vogue in favor of Harper’s Bazaar when women of my age started disappearing from Vogue’s acknowledgement as savvy fashion consumers to be replaced with fashion-masquerading pro-leftist commentary. The conspicuous consumption and luxury-addicted Vogue never did catch on | Read More »
2010… an interesting year for politicos on both sides of the pond…
Politicos are going to have a lot to look pay attention to in 2010. Not only is it going to be one hell of a blood-bath in the House & the Senate for Democrats, but the UK has general election coming up. Will the RINO-like UK Conservatives manage an overall majority or will the rapidly growing smaller parties eat into their votes?

Israelis Forced To Cancel UK Trip Over War Crimes Fears
This is what happens when a country gives up its sovereignty to international leftist organizations like the UN: JERUSALEM (AP) – A group of Israeli military officers called off an official visit to Britain last week, fearing they could face arrest on war crimes charges, officials said Tuesday. The four unidentified officers, holding ranks from major to colonel, are the latest in a string of | Read More »
Queen Of England banned from official state visits to Israel by her own Foreign Office….. And….. Former Israeli Minister Livini has a warrant for her arrest issued in The UK.
Saw this over at Pamela Geller’s site (Atlas Shrugs) as a combined post and was completely floored……. Here’s the two stories from the original links……… This first bit is enough over the top to be absolutely real. Just as scary though, the second piece is true. http://www.worldjewishcongress.org/en/main/showNews/id/8719 The eminent historian Andrew Roberts has said that the British government had a de facto ban in place | Read More »
While Oprah Was Announcing She’s Leaving TV, Here’s Some Things You May Have Missed…….
So…… Opry Windbag is gonna git on down the road a piece. That’s news ? Maybe it’s news to the ‘muumuu-wearing, eating-cake-frosting-right-out-of-the-container’ crowd, but for me, the following items are a tad more realistically described as news. ====================== Elected: New President Of Europe & Foreign Minister. http://www.israelnationalnews.com/News/News.aspx/134527 The European Union has elected Belgian Prime Minister Herman Van Rompuy as President Of Europe and The UK’s | Read More »
The BBC’s political correctness police have started re-writing nursery rhymes…… Really.
http://www.nationaltimes.com.au/opinion/blogs/the-vulture/bbc-goes-potty-over-humpty-dumpty/20091020-h67y.html In a revised version of the nursery rhyme that aired recently on the British Broadcasting Corporation’s children’s channel CBeebies, the tale – which first appeared in print in 1810 – no longer ends with “all the king’s horses and all the king’s men/Couldn’t put Humpty together again”. Now, a crack squadron of His Majesty’s finest hard-boiled military personnel has found the recipe to “make | Read More »
Chessboxing Latest Addition To Competitive Sports
One thing that I love about the British is that when they take a cultural idea, no matter how off-the-wall from another nation, that idea somehow morphs into something far grander than the original concept before it hits our shores. And so it is with Chessboxing, the latest hybrid competitive sport gaining popularity in the UK. Originally theorized in a comedy routine by Serbian comic, | Read More »
Drugged Out Of One’s Gourd
Poor Labour Prime Minister Gordon Brown of the UK has been the subject of some scurrilous web rumors lately that he is “self-medicating” by popping pills in order to “get himself through” his high pressure/low respect days. Who could blame Brown, if he took to at least the bottle after not only being snubbed five times in a row to get a bilateral conference with | Read More »
The IAEA: Whatever Are We To Do?
From The Political and Financial Markets Commentator I Think This Situation Even Supersedes The Health Care Debate, Because Health Care Will Not Matter During A Nuclear Winter Sequel To The Iranian Nuclear Situation As mentioned yesterday (Iran and North Korea: Welcome Back My Friends To The Show That Never Ends), the Iranian nuclear weapons development situation is extremely disconcerting for the entire world. In addition, | Read More »

Fashion Police In UK Impose Burkinis On Non-Muslims
Summer 2009 may be half way over but there’s still time to work on that tan down by the public swimming pool. Unless, of course, you happen to live in the UK and then sunburn and tan lines will be the least of your worries. It turns out that non-Muslim recreational swimmers must adhere to sharia approved swim wear or be turned away from taxpayer | Read More »
Liberals and the ‘Average Life Expectancy’ Lie
Promoted from the diaries by Jeff Tell any pro-ObamaCare Democrat that socialized healthcare doesn’t work, and you are sure to receive the smug reply that “countries with a single-payer system have a higher life expectancy.” Technically, that’s true. But, as the saying goes, there are “lies, damned lies and statistics.” The lie in this particular set of stats is indeed not in the stats themselves, | Read More »
