It's the thought that counts

The media and environmentalists like to bash the United States -- and President George W. Bush especially -- over the fact that we haven't signed onto the Kyoto Treaty. It turns out that all this fury is more about appearances than it actually is about damage done. From the American Thinker we have these inconvenient […]

Customers are criminals

The RIAA -- the recording industry's thug enforcers -- have once again stated in legal briefs that they believe their customers are criminals. As Ars Technica reported: Those MP3 and AAC files that you've ripped from your CD collection are still "unauthorized copies" in the eyes of the recording industry. In a brief filed late […]

It's not her money

The Hill newspaper is reporting on the spending habits of some members of Congress when it comes to their offices and staff. It turns out that Speaker Nancy Pelosi has spent more than $16,000 -- on flowers -- since taking office in January. I won't be spending that much on a used car that -- […]

Carmageddon

This post has been updated! Who wins when a 2001 Ford Escort and a 2002 Chevy Cavalier collide? It's a trick question, you say? No one wins when those two similar-sized cars collide. Wrong. Yes, it's not like tractor-trailer vs. motorcycle, where the motorcyclist is lucky if the semi-driver even notices that he's been de-biked. […]

Thoughts on the Colorado shootings

Over a 12 hour period, 24-year-old Matthew Murray killed four people because they're Christians -- two at a missionary training facility in Arvada, Colo., and two at New Life Church in Colorado Springs. "You Christians brought this on yourselves," Murray wrote on a Web site for people who have left Pentecostal and fundamentalist religious organizations. […]

How to protest

On the comparatively rare occasion that a conservative of some sort is invited to speak on a college campus, leftists of various stripes come out not just to protest, but to silence the opposition. They take over the stage with yelling, shouting and the occasional assault in an effort to maintain the ideological purity of […]

I question the source

Sam Donaldson apparently just finished reading some nutty lefty blogs when he appeared on the roundtable segment in ABC's "This Week" yesterday. Courtesy of Newsbusters, here's the transcript: GEORGE STEPHANOPOULOS: Let's turn to Republicans. Mitt Romney did give his big speech on faith in America this week. He said very clearly that he would not […]

Feminism's focus

It's been noted that there is no single word in the English language that is the opposite of misogynist -- or someone who hates women. The functional opposite -- a term for women who hate men -- is "feminist." However, it appears that even that term may be a little constrained. Maybe a better definition […]

Ysabel

After finally putting down "Snow Crash", I quickly turned to the plethora of other books weighing down my bookshelves and picked up "Ysabel" buy Guy Gavriel Kay. Kay is one of my favorite writers. His books are very well written and frankly hard to classify. His works typically fall in the fantasy category in the […]

Dan Dierdorf and math

Yes, I shouldn't expect a guy who landed on his head for most of the first half of his adult life to be able to do calculus, but simple division would be nice. Watching the Chargers vs. Titans this afternoon (I TiVo'd it so as to not have to wake up early.) I wanted to […]
