The first draft

Iowahawk has discovered the first draft of history professor David A. Bell's controversial piece "Was 9/11 really that bad." An excerpt: No disrespect to the victims of 9/11 or to the men and women of our armed forces, but by the standards of past wars, 3000 yuppie bond traders and a couple of high-rise developments […]

Got me my Microsoft freebies

I got Microsoft Windows Vista Business edition and Office 2007 in the mail yesterday. Seven hundred bucks worth of software for free -- all for playing six Webcasts -- including one or two that I actually did listen to (and didn't understand more than a fraction of what they were talking about). The strange thing […]

Can we call him un-American?

And the radical left always claims that the right wants to restrict freedom of speech. (via The Volokh Conspiracy) Former New York Times reporter and now senior fellow at The Nation Institute, Chris "American Fascists" Hedges: This is the awful paradox of tolerance. There arise moments when those who would destroy the tolerance that makes […]

No cautious optimism allowed

New York Times public editor Byron Calame -- and the Times as an institution -- are a disgrace. They've taken the "citizen of the world" idea and embraced its anti-Americanism. At the end of Calame's Sunday column, we learn that the Times' chief military correspondent, Michael Gordon, was recently reprimanded for comments he made on […]

Cowards

The Hill newspaper reported yesterday that Capitol Hill police were ordered to retreat Saturday from some 300 anarchists who spraypainted graffiti on the steps of the U.S. Capitol. According to the sources, police officers were livid when they were told to fall back by U.S. Capitol Police (USCP) Chief Phillip Morse and Deputy Chief Daniel […]

Was Pearl Harbor really that bad?

Fewer than 3,000 Americans were killed by the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor on Dec. 7, 1941. The target was military, not civilian -- seriously, warships are just asking for it aren't they? And this was 1941 -- Hawaii wasn't even a U.S. state! It was a justified strike against American imperialism. So, the Japanese […]

Laffer wha?

If the editorial writers at the New York Times have heard of the Laffer Curve, then it's obvious they want to forget it. In a typically lame editorial today, the Times encourages Congress to let the Bush tax cuts expire in order to bring the economy to a screeching halt erase the budget deficit. Oh, […]

I'm shocked! SHOCKED! I tell ya...

I watched a bit of network news this evening which once again reinforces why I try never to watch network news. I'm pretty sure I was watching ABC when they did a little story on the perjury and obstruction of justice trial of former chief of staff for Vice President Dick Cheney, I. Lewis "Scooter" […]

Intellectual disconnect

Senate Democrats -- and a few too many Republicans -- have gone schizophrenic when it comes to the new Bush plan for Iraq. It should be noted that the Senate earlier this week confirmed Gen. David Petraeus by a vote of 81-0 for his fourth star. The same Gen. Petraeus who during his Senate confirmation […]

Setec Astronomy

Yes, I'm back to referencing the movie "Sneakers." In that film, Setec Astronomy was discovered to be an anagram of "Too Many Secrets." If it wasn't apparent before, the New York Times is of the opinion that the U.S. government doesn't deserve to have any secrets when it comes to national security. The Bush administration […]

Yet another example of how antigunners would prefer more gun-related deaths if the alternative is a pro-gun group getting some bit of credit for reducing them.

A cartoon that teaches kids gun safety is offensive now? I don't think any TV network carries Eddie Eagle. Only way a https://twitter.com/Jonas_EJ/status/1574423613121470470

"Founder @shannonrwatts of @MomsDemand asserts that Eddie Eagle is 'a propaganda tool, similar to Joe Camel in marketing cigarettes to kids.' Her critique is painfully plausible." https://www.texasobserver.org/firearms-children-youth-market-nra/
