As with many things, we tend to take blogging for
granted in America. And while what bloggers accomplish here matters
from time to time, it’s hard to compare it to
something like this. Read it all.
Having failed to stop the cyber-dissidents broadcasting to the
world, the authorities have simply...
American Research Group. It’s interesting in that he wins among
Republicans and ties McCain for first among Independents. What will
be nice is when we get beyond this polling stage and get to see
some early returns from the first primaries. They may go a long way
This recent post by Crooks and Liars sort of sums up the dilemma
of how impossible it is to gain any support for the war from the
hapless Left. First the
This Week with George Stephanopolis notes the passings this week
including the official Pentagon count of 10 troops...
as they say:
A convent in southern Italy is being shut down after a quarrel
among its last three remaining nuns ended in blows, press reports
Sisters Annamaria and Gianbattista, reportedly upset about their
mother superior’s authoritarian ways, scratched her in the face and
threw her to the...
This one is just sad:
The interview, which included the revelation that (McCain’s) … talking to his pastor about undergoing a full-immersion baptism after the campaign, sent Beliefnet’s irreverent "God-o-meter" spinning.
Seems pretty clear
what the Burmese police were engaged in wasn’t simply managing
civil unrest. This may be a sort of
Tiananmen Square moment when it comes to reporting on events in
Burma, assuming the world wants to pay attention.
Footage capturing the last, terrible seconds of Kenji Nagai’s
life has been...
I like and respect Newt, think he has a great mind for issues
and wouldn’t at all mind seeing him in an administration – just
don’t think he’d play well on a ticket. Looks as though he
doesn’t think so, either.
WASHINGTON – Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich will not run
Photos from the front:
DWF (docweaselforum) member and US soldier stationed in Afghanistan, who goes by the sn Necrotaur on the forum, has posted these great pics of his experiences in Afghanistan.
Okay, I have to do this tactfully, as I’ve probably been a
little hard on Rick Moran in the past. But I find this to be
annoying as hell.
LIMBAUGH IS STILL A GOOSE
I see where some on the right disagree with my take on
Limbaugh’s comment. Some suggested I watch the...
Sad but not surprising that Eurotrash funded, America
would call up their lawyers to try and silence political speech
with which they disagree.
Last week it demanded that the site remove eight items, arguing
that they violated MoveOn’s merchandising trademarks.
Trademark law doesn’t confer monopoly rights over all uses of
Today John Edwards said "’Pretty Soon We’re Not Going to Have a
Young African-American Male Population in America" and it hasn’t
even risen to a blip on Memeorandum. Video of
Edwards here. When he can’t even generate a bunch of attention
over such a stupid remark, he’s done.
Aside from that...
And to think, he didn’t even require a lawyer to
secure his release.

(CBS 5 / AP) OROVILLE A disgruntled male student, reportedly mad at a teacher, fired shots inside an Oroville high school Friday morning and held two other students hostage in a band room before releasing them and being taken into custody by authorities.
Michael Medved has a piece that
basically re-states the obvious when it comes to slavery. Any
current political discussion of American slavery has nothing to do
with what happened in America’s past. It’s simply fodder for a
primarily Democrat liberal agenda that keeps minorities, especially
Blacks, as captive today as some...
A clamp down on media
and worse, via Michelle:
As I noted the other day, Burmese bloggers have been crucial
whistleblowers and eyewitnesses to history–supplying the world with
round-the-clock coverage and photos of their oppressive regime’s
crackdown. Now, just as the Western press is lauding their role,
the military junta has...
Alveda King, niece of Martin Luther King had a
scheduled speech at an Iowa high school cancelled due to her
anti-abortion stance. King insists that is not the primary
focus of her message. Video

youngest daughter launched a program she...
The Left has been working hard to gin up controversies attacking
conservatives, this latest one is a hoot, having watched it unfold
until none other than John "If I wasn’t in Cambodia
I’ll eat my hat" Kerry weighs in.
As always, it begins with Media
