Three random items

Three random items of interest: The United States vaunted military-industrial complex has apparently forgotten the technical knowledge necessary to make Trident missiles. Robert P. George and Eric Cohen on President Barack Obama's odious embryonic stem cell research funding decision. Ed Whelan compares President Barack Obama's signing statement issued with the $410 billion omnibus spending bill […]

Global warming/environment update

Yesterday, Gallup released poll results showing that more Americans than at any time in a decade believe the reporting on global warming is exaggerated. Unfortunately, at 41 percent, skeptics still remain a minority -- even though it is a sizable one. And skeptics are a minority up with which Al Gore will not put. As […]

Playing catch-up

Apparently Democrats aren't happy that Sen. Ted Kennedy doesn't have as many things named after him and his family as Sen. Robert "KKK" Byrd does. More than one out of every five dollars of the $126 million Massachusetts is receiving in earmarks from a $410 billion federal spending package is going to help preserve the […]

I'd fire him

The Chief Operating Officer of Revision3 -- some Silicon Valley company -- had his home broken into last night. While he was at home. While he was awake. So what does this guy do? He Twitters the break-in. And then sets up a video feed. He doesn't call the cops. He doesn't shoot the guy. […]

Obama to live up to his principles...eventually

A $410 billion omnibus spending bill is sitting on President Barack Obama's desk. The bill contains nearly 9,000 earmarks of the kind that Obama campaigned against. Until recently, some of the earmarks still had Obama's name on them from his time in the Senate. (They didn't remove those earmarks -- they just changed the name […]

Quality reporting

Time magazine's online edition had a story yesterday listing "The 10 Major Newspapers That Will Either Fold or Go Digital Next." The intro contains this sentence: "The Rocky Mountain News closed, and the Seattle Post-Intelligencer, owned by Hearst, will almost certainly close or only publish online." Why the P-I doesn't make the top 10 list […]

The mess we're in

White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs has the difficult task of defending the administration from a press corps that's out for blood that wants to help. Today's press briefing included this interesting exchange: Q Let me take one more crack at what Dan was getting at before. Talking about tomorrow on education, the administration's critics […]

A week later, my prediction comes true

Last Monday, I predicted, based on two op-ed pieces decrying the Senate's filibuster, that the New York Times editorial page would soon follow with an editorial attacking the GOP for using the filibuster. Today, the Times, proved me right. And if there was any question on whether the Times is partisan or principled, they answered […]

Obama's pay grade increased

When asked by Pastor Rick Warren "at what point does a baby get human rights?" Then-candidate Barack Obama responded that the question was "above his pay grade." Today, Obama increased his pay grade, stating that human embryos are definitely before the point at which a baby gets human rights -- or even a modicum of […]

The story behind the flag-draped coffin ban

Now that we have a Democrat in the White House, we won't have to worry about the media manufacturing embarrassing images of the President having fun while people in the armed forces are dying. That's certainly one of the reasons why President George W. Bush gave up golf after the War in Iraq started. It […]

They don't want states, SCOTUS (at least not one that protects individual rights) or Senate. They want direct national control--& they want corporations to help implement policies & shut down expression that threatens them. I just wish they knew the definition of "fascist"
