An electric bike? What is Harley-Davidson thinking?
There are at least two of the Redstate contributors, including myself, who own and ride Harley-Davidson motorcycles. When I bought my Softail Slim, the salesman said “Welcome to the family.” And that is what it is. It’s a family, a culture, and in some cases a lifestyle. Harley owners spend many thousands of dollars for their bikes and thousands more to customize them…new (louder) exhausts, | Read More »
Moral Vacancy at Georgia Right to Life
“As far as I am concerned, Georgia Right to Life has now become the Westboro Baptist Church of the pro-life movement Instead of saving souls, they’d rather stone those who are trying to save souls. We need a new pro-life group in Georgia.” The United States House of Representatives passed legislation on Tuesday evening that would prohibit abortions in the United States after 20 weeks | Read More »
Tech at Night: The ITU treaty is a failure of Obama to lead internationally
Hello again. Having been traveling from Wednesday to Friday for my employer, I did my best to get this out Friday night, but I crashed about a third of the way into my backlog of links. Then over the weekend my email server died. So, we catch up with Tech at Night on Monday!
We’ll start with the International Telecommunications Union. Reports came out that ITU anti-liberty proposals were backing off, but the effort is going in the wrong direction. A big chunk of the Anglosphere is against it, including the Obama administration.
The President is getting credit for this position from industry and House Republicans, but consider this: if the ITU’s secretary general didn’t see the Obama opposition coming then just how muted were Obama’s efforts to fix the treaty to begin with? This is a failure of the President to lead internationally.

From the Internets: Anonymous finds a fun target
I normally don’t tread into these waters (maybe I should more often), but hacktivist group Anonymous has found a target that I don’t mind them targeting – the Westboro Baptist Church. Here’s their declaration of war/intent/whatever you’d like to call it. http://vimeo.com/55671721 This from MSN: Can two wrongs make a right?

Thank God We Don’t Live in France
Compare the news out of France and the U.S. Supreme Court yesterday, both involving the limits on offensive speech. In Snyder v. Phelps, the High Court ruled 8-1 that the First Amendment protects the Westboro Baptist Church from being sued for picketing the funerals of U.S. troops with signs such as “Thank God for Dead Soldiers.” The Topeka church’s message is that God hates the | Read More »
Westboro Baptist Church and the Ten-Mile Proposition
The Westboro Baptist Church… need I say more? The nation watches as the Supreme Court deliberates on the limits of free speech in America involving the right of families to bury the dead in peace versus the need of the little Kansas cult to disrupt military funerals and tell grieving families that their dearly departed are going to hell. Going to hell, mind you, because | Read More »
The Westboro Baptist Church: In the Footsteps of the Pharisees and Sadducees
In the aftermath of the court’s reversal of a multi-million dollar judgment against the Westboro Baptist Church for picketing a soldier’s funeral, we in America are left with many questions about where justice can be found. Despite many within the country that believe that the cult from Topeka, Kansas, should not be allowed to heckle and damn our nation’s military dead at their funerals, for | Read More »
Westboro Baptist Church Plans To Picket Tony Snow Funeral
The scum-suckers of the Westboro Baptist Church led by the hatemongering Rev Fred Phelps have announced their attention to picket the funeral of former White House spokesman, Tony Snow. Tony Snow (Press Secretary for George W. Bush) is dead, YES! He had a platform, he was given some small talent by his creator. He was an unfaithful steward, and is now residing in hell.
