Trust us?

Courtesy of Dale Franks over at Q&O comes this bit of journalistic malpractice on the part of CNN. The subject was an investigative report on performance-enhancing drugs -- we'll call them Barry Bondoids for short. Interviewed was professional wrestler and retired Marine John Cena. Wow! That sounds like Cena is admitting to using Barry Bondoids, […]

If you thought the Kelo case was bad

In Boulder, Colo., they make the Kelo land-grab look like the epitome of government adherence to the rule of law. Despite owning the land, despite living only 200 yards from the property, despite hiking past it every week with their three dogs, despite spraying for weeds and fixing fences, despite paying homeowner association dues and […]

Can they do this every time?

Don Surber has the complete video of Tuesday's Senate session -- all 30 seconds of it. (The pregame talk makes the total length 46 seconds.) Of course, Democrats are doing this so that President Bush can't make any recess appointments. I hope Republicans remember this sort of stunt when Democrats next hold the White House […]

Dropping the bomb

Nation media writer Eric Alterman made an allegation in a column in that magazine that, well, I'll let you read it: When Enola Gay pilot Paul Tibbets died November 1, the New York Times repeated Tibbets's contention that "It would have been morally wrong if we'd have had [the atomic bomb] and not used it […]

CNN's planted questions

There's been a lot of outrage in the blogosphere over the past few days as industrious, investigative bloggers discovered that all six of CNN's "undecided voters" weren't your average, everyday politically disinterested citizens. In a nutshell, CNN's six "undecided voters" were: A Democratic Party bigwig An antiwar activist A Union official An Islamic leader A […]

Sincerity matters Pt. 2

President Bush, as presidents have always done, has invited this year's American winners of Nobel Prizes to the White House to be honored. Yes, this includes Al Gore. The Gore camp said the White House went out of its way to accommodate the former vice president's schedule, even moving the event when there was a […]

The end is near

Boy, the timing is almost perfect. On Saturday, the U.N. Intergovernental Panel on Climate Change told us that the world is going to end. Opening with a sweeping statement directed at climate change skeptics, the summary declares that climate systems have already begun to change. Unless action is taken, human activity could lead to "abrupt […]

Fuel efficiency

On Thursday, the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals -- the most-overturned circuit in the land -- ruled that the Bush administration's fuel economy/pollution standards are too lax. Now, I'm all for increased fuel efficency. If Detroit (and Europe and Japan) could make a safe, spacious SUV with enough power to merge safely into freeway traffic […]

The Internet is not for children

I'm sure every parent is acutely aware of the dangers of predators online, but that's not all you should be worried about. This story, and you'll excuse some of the language, has had me alternately enraged and despairing for the past day. Later that day, Ron opened his daughter's MySpace account and viewed what he […]

Can we question their patriotism now?

In Cambridge, Mass., it turns out that supporting the troops is the same as supporting the war. Was it just too pro-war for Cambridge? A troop of Boy Scouts is wondering why their donation boxes meant for troops in Iraq were thrown out of polling stations last week. Election officials ordered the removal of donation […]

A mom in @ClarkCountySch reads from a graphic assignment her daughter was required to do. Her mic then gets cut off because it’s inappropriate for a public discussion.

Adults can’t handle hearing this content yet they readily give it to kids in school. How does it make sense?
