How to convert Modern Art from Junk into something actually meaningful

Caecilius: Modern art. Out of the way, that's it. Oh, Rombus, I'm a little bit peckish. Get me some ants in honey, there's a good lad. Ooo, maybe a dormouse? What do you think? Metella: You call it modern art, I call it a blooming great waste of space. Doctor Who: The Fires of Pompeii … Continue reading How to convert Modern Art from Junk into something actually meaningful

Peaceful Islam in Action in Norway (No I really mean it)

I've been pretty hard on both Radical Islam and those who in the Islamic Community that have given only lip service to "Peaceful Islam". So I"m always delighted when I see stories like this In the wake of a deadly shooting attack at a synagogue in Denmark las week, a group of Norwegian Muslims intends to hold … Continue reading Peaceful Islam in Action in Norway (No I really mean it)

A Tip of the Fedora to an Honorable Leftist

I've taken a lot of time to deliver some well deserved hits on the various Michael Brown Protesters. However I'd like to draw your attention to a man I disagree who deserves to be mentioned. Meet the Reverend Jarrett Maupin I have never met the reverend but by that description odds are we have little … Continue reading A Tip of the Fedora to an Honorable Leftist

A hat tip to Ian Drake & Steve McManaman from yesterday Germany Brazil game

There have been plenty of words already written about yesterday's World Cup match between Germany & Brazil and there have already been plenty of jokes at Brazil's expense (Fence put up a better fight in '41 etc etc etc...) But watching the replay of the match which I didn't see. I noticed something that has … Continue reading A hat tip to Ian Drake & Steve McManaman from yesterday Germany Brazil game

Eric Cantor Does the Right Thing: Democrats Hardest Hit

But remember: big tent! We must all stick together! Unless it’s Richard Lugar refusing to back Richard Mourdock after being beaten in the primary; or Charlie Crist switching parties; or Karl Rove attacking Christine O’Donnell on the night of her primary upset; or the attacks on Sharon Angle, Sarah Palin, Michele Bachmann, Steve King, and … Continue reading Eric Cantor Does the Right Thing: Democrats Hardest Hit

And Some Good News from the Muslim Community

As everyone knows I think highly of both Pam Geller & Robert Spencer and have been uncompromising in both my defense of them and in the importance of paying attention to their warning.  Pretending that Radical Islam is not a danger is not only a lie, but it's dangerous That being said when we get … Continue reading And Some Good News from the Muslim Community

Ali vs Bill Schmalfeldt I really like this

One of the first principles of free speech is two sides express what they what they think and they compete in the arena of ideas. Ali Akbar has a regular show on Blog talk Radio, he invited Bill Schmalfeldt to come on and go head to head. There is absolutely no question what side I'm … Continue reading Ali vs Bill Schmalfeldt I really like this

“We absolutely will not publish, that’s why we’re checking”

It's a rare day when I take CBS's side over Powerline and Glenn but I have to say that CBS in general and Katy Conrad in particular did the right thing concerning the Koch/Zimmerman non-story. You have a story that is starting to go around the net to the point where snoops is talking about … Continue reading “We absolutely will not publish, that’s why we’re checking”

Rick Santourm discovers what I learned a couple of years ago…

...if Stacy McCain is your friend, he is your friend all the way. Santorum didn’t have big money. He didn’t have praise from big-name pundits. He didn’t have the GOP Establishment on his side, and the major media gave him quite nearly zero coverage. But he kept plugging away — “Steady Eddie,” as he said … Continue reading Rick Santourm discovers what I learned a couple of years ago…

Pujois shows respect for the game and Stan (the Man)

For reasons I still can't understand Stan Musial somehow doesn't seem to get the respect among the greats of Baseball. You don't hear people speaking about his greatness outside of St. Louis. They don't talk about his longevity, his hitting, his work ethic and the killer numbers he put up year after year. (This might … Continue reading Pujois shows respect for the game and Stan (the Man)

I found this story very cute

Jimmy Stewart often remarked that he owed all he had to the fans who paid the price of a ticket. He never forgot that. It sounds like Johnny Deep has learned that lesson: Smooth sailing for Johnny Depp, straight into the hearts of dozens of school children. The movie star, in London shooting the fourth … Continue reading I found this story very cute

I give Talking Points Memo credit

Their interview/article on Pam Geller was tough but fair. I think it is an excellent example of how to do a "hostile" interview, dealing with someone you disagree with fundamentally. I hit the left side of the 'sphere a bit so when they do it right they deserve a pat. Good show. Memeorandum thread here. … Continue reading I give Talking Points Memo credit
