National Geographic takes on the truthers

I just got finished watching the National Geographic channel’s “9/11: Science and Conspiracy” special. Personally, I enjoyed the Popular Mechanics special more, but the Nat Geo show wasn’t so much about the science of the 9/11 attacks as it was the reaction of “truthers” to evidence that undermines their theories. If it wasn’t obvious by […]

Sen. Ted Kennedy died earlier this week after serving for 47 years in his family’s apparently hereditary Senate seat. Normally, I subscribe to the admonition to not speak ill of the dead, which is why this blog made no note of Kennedy’s passing earlier. However, sometimes people write things so jaw-droppingly outrageous that I am […]

Hoystory goes to a town hall

The Twitter feed in the sidebar isn't updating, but I've been tweeting from a Town Hall in SLO. The crowd is about 70-30 anti-Obamacare. But unlike what you see on YouTube the debate is very respectful. Maybe that's because the Congresscritter isn't here to catch flak.

The pussification of the United States

Over the last few days, the mainstream media, the talking-head shows on cable news, the left side of the blogosphere and the Obama Justice Department have been going ape over a 5-year-old CIA inspector general’s report that outlined some of the outrageous lengths CIA interrogators went to to try and get information to save American […]

Pharisee Obama

President Obama appeared before some religious leaders yesterday and apparently turned in a performance that, had it been done by former President George W. Bush, would’ve sent the left into paroxysms of “theocrat” and “Christianist.” Repeatedly invoking the Bible, President Obama yesterday told religious leaders that health-care critics are "bearing false witness" against his plan. […]

Bad journalism

MSNBC wanted to use one of the recent town halls as a jumping off point to paint Obamacare protesters, as Janeane Garafalo puts it, people who “hate that a black man is president.” Take a look at the first part of the video – you don’t need to watch the roundtable discussion. Notice anything odd […]

Move on already

Law professor John Yoo returned to classes at UC Berkeley yesterday, and the loons came out. Anti-war activists protested Monday at the University of California, Berkeley to call for the firing of a law professor who co-wrote legal memos that critics say were used to justify the torture of suspected terrorists. Campus police arrested at […]

Nothing for clunkers

Apparently the initial underfunding of the so-called “Cash for Clunkers” program wasn’t the only screw-up. The federal government has only reimbursed auto dealers for 2 percent of the claims they've submitted through the popular "cash for clunkers" program, a Pennsylvania congressman said, calling on the Obama administration to help speed up the process. Rep. Joe […]

Ivory tower cowards

When a bunch of mullahs manufactured outrage a few years back over some largely innocuous cartoon depictions of the "prophet" Muhammed, hundreds died as rioting followed. In covering the violence, most American newspapers and magazines declined to publish even the most tame of the cartoons out of what they said was a desire not to […]

Question for President Obama

It’s highly unlikely that I’ll find myself in the audience for one of President Obama’s town hall meetings, and even less likely that I would be called on to ask a question. But, if I did have that opportunity, this is what I would ask. Mr. President, I would like to assure you that your […]
