I wouldn't get all conspiratorial about this. It only holds 20,000 gals of diesel fuel at most. And they aren't even sure how much, if any, was in it. It was on a barge and being taken to be scraped.

Gebus! This from conservative John Hawkins at Right Wing News. So, the default status for Americans should be that the government owns our organs when we die. But it would be nice if Uncle Sam threw in an economic pot-sweetener in the form of a tax break along the way?

April 30, 2010
By

I'm not understanding some of the reactions I'm seeing to this idea by the Democrats. Since 2008, they've continued to drop the mask hiding precisely what they are – full blown statists. So, why their support for something like this comes as a surprise to some makes no sense at all.

It doesn't spell out all the "tasks" they are alleged to have performed. There was some travel to Yemen, plus the purchasing of software to commuicate covertly over the Internet. And al-Qaida seems to have a thing for Casio digital watches. Interesting.

Well, Duh: Topless March Draws Crowd In College Town

If drawing a crowd by going topless in a college town is actually an accomplishment of some sort, I think we're grading on a very easy curve here.

Judging from the back, I think I could do without a gander at the rest. The crowd may not have been over-flowing, but her jeans...

April 30, 2010
By

Selwyn Duke spells out many good reasons to oppose automatic organ donor-ship, currently being proposed in New York. But even if one views organ donor-ship as a desired activity, there's a fundamental principle at stake here, one with far-reaching consequences for American society.
