Talk Ain’t Cheap

April 30, 2007
By

Any new Fairness Doctine would most likely operate almost as a tax on stations carrying Conservative talk – forcing them to carry marginal liberal spew at a loss. George Will takes a look via Betsy’s Page.

One can only imagine, Tune in and listen to Juan Cole discuss bad...

Iran Undone

April 30, 2007
By

Or getting there. What remains to be seen is how effective reformers can be at the ballot box and to what lengths will the hardliners go to retain control.

According to Ali Alavi of Siyasat-e Ruz newspaper, some 150 political activists, governors-general, former administration officials and dissident MPs drew up a coalition...

Should Lesbianism Be Taxed?

April 30, 2007
By

As a follow up to this story about lesbians being twice as likely as straight women to be over weight and even obese … I have a question:

LESBIANS are twice as likely as heterosexual women to be overweight or obese, which puts them at greater risk for obesity-related health problems and...

Chewin’ The Fat On Teh Gay

April 30, 2007
By

I’m crushed … er, not. But there’s something I don’t quite get.

LESBIANS are twice as likely as heterosexual women to be overweight or obese, which puts them at greater risk for obesity-related health problems and death, US researchers said.

The report, published in the American Journal of Public...

Pressure On Maliki

April 30, 2007
By

The Left is celebrating two stories out today. That aside, taken together they are most likely meant to apply a little pressure to Iraq’s PM, Maliki. That they come in the wake of other stories highlighting Sunni cooperation in Anbar is likely no coincidence either. Washington’s patiece with Maliki...

Levin On Thompson

April 30, 2007
By

Mark Levin, who worked for Reagan, directly for AG Meese, likes what he sees so far. Speaking as a Conservative, I think most of us do. But knowing Conservatives, I suspect some will begin to lose patience if he doesn’t officially jump in. He’s going to have to endure the...

George Tenet: Sandy Berger Stole My Notes!

April 30, 2007
By

George Tenet was DCI for over three full years prior to 9/11.

Tenet held that position from July 1997 to July 2004, making him the second-longest serving director in the agency’s history

More than any other individual, it was Tenet’s job to know what threats there were to this country...

TODAY’S FRED THOMPSON RALLY IN COOKEVILLE: I thought about going, but we’ve been a bit under the weather. But reader Jim Brown emails this YouTube video: "It was filmed and edited by my fifteen year old Grandson, Matthew Matheson. I was late in picking him up so he...

Hitchens On Jefferson’s War

April 30, 2007

Hitchen’s has a balanced and informative must read via City Journal, one with quite a bit of interesting research. I didn’t realize one of the early verses of the Star Spangled Banner actually referrred to Islam due to the...

Why Moran Is More Contemptible Than The Left

April 29, 2007
By

Some might think I have been too harsh on Rick Moran, just as I have been harsh in my commentary when addressing others who have abandoned previous positions in support of the Iraq War. That’s because I view said converts to some form of a Democrat appeasement strategy as being much...

Slack Jawed Yawper? Yeoow!!

April 29, 2007
By

LMAO Rick Moran offers a clarification and links to me.

As I fully expected, some on the right are in full throated howl over my suggestion that we alter our mission in Iraq. The predictable response of the slack jawed yawpers doesn’t necessarily depress me, although I am not...

Chris Wallace Gets All PC On Fox

April 29, 2007
By

Clicking past Fox News Sunday, I just overheard Chris Wallace chide Mara Liasson for being sexist suggesting it was happening throughout the media, as well – and he was serious. Her mistake? Saying "Obama and Hillary" in speaking of the recent debate. Wallace made the assertion that the use of Hillary’s...

Can The Reagan Legacy Be Rekindled?

April 29, 2007
By

Rekindling the Reagan legacy may have been more easily achieved directly after the Clinton years, but that doesn’t mean it can’t be done. And it appears some former Reagan insiders are considering doing just that very thing in the person of potential presidential candidate Fred Thompson.

A key figure in the Reagan...

Feingold: Troop Deaths For Political Comfort?

April 29, 2007
By

He didn’t? No, he did say it and it’s being broadly quoted through the news wires. Thanks to a tipster. So, as the blame for all this is squarely on Bush, who is it that’s drawing said comfort from the deaths of American troops because they won’t simply move to deny...

ISTANBUL (Reuters) – Up to a million people rallied in a sea of red Turkish flags on Sunday, accusing the government of planning an Islamist state and demanding it withdraw its presidential candidate.

Update: Oh, btw, from the New York Times:

Uneasy Alliance Is Taming One Insurgent Bastion

RAMADI, Iraq — Anbar Province, long the lawless heartland of the tenacious Sunni Arab resistance, is undergoing a surprising transformation. Violence is ebbing in many areas, shops and schools are reopening, police forces are growing and the...

Ruthless People

April 29, 2007
By

Fortunately, US command has reversed British policy which allowed for area ceasefires in Afghanistan. The ceasefires only allowed the Taliban to regroup.

In other good news, it appears we have taken the gloves off to some degree. I only hope this necessary policy isn’t reversed the first time a misjudgment leads to...

De zaak Nathalee Holloway?

April 29, 2007
By

Don’t ask me, the best I could do was translate the book blurb using Babelfish – which has issues, obviously.

In May 2005 the eighteen-year-old American Natalee Holloway disappear on Aruba. Joran of the dutch tell the police force firstly that he has brought Natalee at night to its hotel...
