How the left debates

Envelopes and dog droppings.

Transparency in journalism

If you've been reading this blog for some time, then you know that I'm of the opinion that it's better for journalism in the long run to finally acknowledge that reporters -- like everyone else on the face of the earth -- are biased and allow the public to take that into account when reading […]

Double standard

I'm no fan of Ann Coulter. I think she's a bomb-thrower and while I may agree with her on most policy issues, the words and analogies she uses to support her positions too often do more harm than good. So, I'm not going defend Coulter's description of some partisan democrats whose husbands were killed in […]

When Political Correctness trumps all

Last week the Canadians arrested 17 men who are allegedly part of a variety of terror plots. The suspects reportedly planned to storm parliament, behead the prime minister and detonate a fertilizer bomb three times the size of the one that destroyed the Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City. Sadly, the state of Canadian journalism […]

Comment spam

It didn't take long for the comment spammers to find the new Hoystory web site. I'm using a spam blocker, so you don't see it, but I also discovered that it's marking some things as spam that aren't. If your comment doesn't show up almost immediately, feel free to drop me a quick note at […]

A question for the lawyers

You'll have to forgive me for not being really enthusiastic about the marriage protection amendment that's not going to make it out of the House or Senate. Yes, it's blatant politics and an effort to get the GOP based riled up. And for those of you with short memories, the Democrats did the same thing […]

50th stays in GOP hands

As of this writing, 90.2 percent of the precincts have been counted and liberal Republican Brian Bilbray holds a 4,800 vote lead and garnered just less half of the votes cast. Republicans spent a lot of money to keep Randy "Dirty Duke" Cunningham's seat and they were successful. Exit polling isn't typically done on races […]

Kiss of death

It looks like that may be what an endorsement from Hoystory.com can do to a candidate in a neck-and-neck race. Last month, in a fit of righteous anger at the complete and total idiocy of the Republicans in Washington, I suggested people cast their votes for Democrat Francine Busby in tomorrow's special election to serve […]

Things that go boom!

Twice (here and here) over the past year or so I've chided the Discovery Channel's "Mythbusters" show for editing out basic chemistry facts from their programs -- facts that can be easily uncovered with a simple Google search. For those who are interested in encouraging their kids to look into careers in chemistry and science, […]

Amazing farewell for #DeltaIVHeavy st #VANDENBERG and great photos by @lwood83 @RC_FirePhoto and Matt Udkow https://www.noozhawk.com/article/vandenberg_sfb_bids_farewell_to_delta_iv_heavy_rocket

I tweeted a few days ago about what appeared to me to be a largely baseless charge of plagiarism made by @PhilWMagness. The evidence of plagiarism is more extensive than I was led to believe by the article I’d read about it. I’m deleting the tweets and I apologize to Mr. Magness.

I remember the 2009 Green Revolution in Iran where people were protesting for basic human rights. The Obama administration, including you as Secretary of State, never did anything to help them. And Biden won't do anything now, because he'd rather have a terrible nuke deal. https://twitter.com/HillaryClinton/status/1573069778021150722

Hillary Clinton @HillaryClinton

Iranians are protesting for their basic human rights in the aftermath of the horrific death of Mahsa Zhina Amini. Iranians deserve to live free from violence and intimidation. The world is watching.
