The surest sign that “Climate Change” has jumped the shark…

...is Charles Johnson attacking those who don't fall for this bunk. Well tomorrow is another year and to my knowledge he still hasn't changed sides on Israel so there is still a slight hope for him, but I wouldn't want to make book on when that will change.

Predictions old and new

Nope this isn't a post about my predictions for 2011 this is instead about predictions in the past that have become busts: It is always entertaining to look at predictions from the past, and see how far off they were. In the 1920s, the assumption was that by the 1950s, we would all be getting … Continue reading Predictions old and new

Light dawns on marble head

The internet has many interesting side effects the most pronounced being that when you make a fool of yourself you are going to be called on it. And if you work for a major newspaper and say something breathtakingly stupid not only will it be preserved forever but if you don't walk it back fast … Continue reading Light dawns on marble head

I regret talking about those death panels that aren’t really there

Remember that old death panel debate that the MSM called a lie when Sarah Palin brought it up, but then was suddenly pulled from the legislation? Well guess what: And now they're able to accomplish through regulatory fiat what they couldn't get through Congress, even with a playing field tilted steeply in their favor. Now … Continue reading I regret talking about those death panels that aren’t really there

The Ultimate in counter programing

While the rest of us on the right pick apart Colman McCarthy over this Washington Post column Robert Stacy McCain decides in a brilliant bit of counter programing to tackle the issue that has sadly been ignored, namely the best tactics to ahem; stimulate the economy of the movie industry: The question of what it … Continue reading The Ultimate in counter programing

A side thought about the military and the left

As I been reading the continuing commentary on the Washington Post piece that has really got the attention of bloggers and readers from the daily pundit "DADT as the reason for ROTC’s banning was always a sham. Now the mask is finally off. The elite professoriat doesn’t hate ROTC because of DADT, they hate ROTC … Continue reading A side thought about the military and the left

I guess the dirty little secret about the left and ROTC is out

If you only listen to the MSM you might not realize that long before anyone was talking about open homosexuality in the military universities on the left were banning ROTC. Those on the left used DADT as a convenient mask to justify such bans on grounds other than "I hate the US military" In the … Continue reading I guess the dirty little secret about the left and ROTC is out

When you are losing you play hide and seek with language

One of the things that is always of note is how the left in particular likes to play with language to change opinion. The best example of course being the change from "Global Warming" to "Climate Change" as Victor Davis Hanson mentions in this piece: When did global warming so easily get away with becoming … Continue reading When you are losing you play hide and seek with language

And this is getting attention now?

My guest this Saturday Barbara Espinosa links to this gem at seeing Red in Arizona who discovers that like the zombie and vampire craze Amnesty won't stay dead unless you stay on it: In an almost-missed article tucked away in the Christmas Day Phoenix Republic tabloid-size weekend newspaper insert was this gem. It seems Mayor … Continue reading And this is getting attention now?

The story of my parents first date

This may sound counter-intuitive but the great skank debate reminds me of this story of my mother's first date with my father back in 43. My father had a brother named Sam ( I named my oldest after him) he was never married but was very "popular" as evidenced by the group of elderly ladies … Continue reading The story of my parents first date

Meanwhile while people debate the “skankiness” of Assange’s partners in Zimbabwe…

...the wikileaks releases continue to put lives in danger. Heroes of the American Left, Bradley Manning and Julian Assange, have destroyed the best hope for ridding Zimbabwe of madman Robert Mugabe by releasing U.S. State Department cables of communications between Prime Minister Morgan Tsvangirai, the leading opponent of Mugabe, and U.S. and E.U. officials, in … Continue reading Meanwhile while people debate the “skankiness” of Assange’s partners in Zimbabwe…

I’m late to this Sarah Palin story

but the contrast is stunning. First Juan Williams “‘There’s nobody out there, except for Sarah Palin, who can absolutely dominate the stage, and she can’t stand on the intellectual stage with Obama,’ Williams said. “Palin, like Williams, is a Fox News contributor. And when Williams was fired by National Public Radio this year after saying … Continue reading I’m late to this Sarah Palin story

What a phony Jeffrey Goldberg is

In his latest he laments the possibility that Israel will cease to be a democracy. Although on topic Israel Matzav answers him the better question is this. Why isn't Jeffrey denouncing the lack of democracy among Israel's enemies? The idea that this fellow who worships at the altar of Fidel Castro is crying about the … Continue reading What a phony Jeffrey Goldberg is

I have to take issue with Professor Reynolds

...with part of his conclusion here: One expects such chiseling dishonesty from Sullivan, and such impishness from McCain (and, of course, both are trolling for links), but apparently Sullivan’s readers are harder to fool than you might think. Although McCain is indeed trolling for links successfully I might add (who has apologized stating he had … Continue reading I have to take issue with Professor Reynolds
