Not Public, But if I Change One Setting It Will Be

Well, I’ve had it.  Rather than walk away and go to a different part of the Internet, my new friends from the UK have decided to start threatening me with legal action. Perhaps their government will pay for me to fly to England to be tried there. I received a nice little message from someone,… Continue reading »

Petty, Petty, Petty.

So my post about Obama made it to the front page.  And for like five minutes there was a great discussion on what makes Obama qualified for the office of POTUS.  Then two crazy English people came in and started casting aspersions on America instead of adding anything to the conversation.  Defensive measures were deployed… Continue reading »

I made the Politics front page on Vox…

It's about time, people.  Seriously though, glad to have made an interesting post. Haha, so I've had very few people tell me why Obama is so great.  We've mostly been talking about how America is not so terrible.  Read and post comments | Send to a friend Bookmark on Delicious Digg this post Recommend on… Continue reading »

Barack Obama’s Appeal is…What, Exactly?

Can anyone, anyone tell me just what is so great about Barack Obama?  From what I've seen of him, he's got nothing to recommend him for the presidency and his whole campaign has been based on indistinct notions of "hope" and "change" that really don't mean anything. I see the news, and I read things… Continue reading »

By Gleaves Whitney People ask why a few of us presidential junkies would like to see Presidents’ Day changed back to Washington’s Birthday. The… Continue reading »

Presidents Day

In anticipation of Presidents Day, I would share with you an article from Cracked.com which made me giggle. It is completely sophomoric and so if you have lost the ability to enjoy such humor then I urge you to go visit Warren G. Harding's tomb and contemplate his presidential career instead.  That should make you… Continue reading »

I Voted!

And thank goodness, because Huckabee could have won Virginia.  I voted McCain despite my reservations…which have returned in force after my brush with His Maverickness left me a bit star-struck.  Tell me if this has happened to you:  I find that the last two viable candidates are the ones who were last and next to… Continue reading »

Saw McCain Today

John McCain made a stop in Norfolk, VA today to discuss foreign policy issues and receive some glowing praise from a number of his colleagues.  Always keen to learn more about international relations and, well, see famous people, I managed to weasel my way in and was treated to a sensible, realistic acknowledgment of the… Continue reading »

Romney Out; Scio Proclaims John McCain for President, 2008

"If I fight on in my campaign, all the way to the convention, I would forestall the launch of a national campaign and make it more likely that Senator Clinton or Obama would win. And in this time of war, I simply cannot let my campaign, be a part of aiding a surrender to terror,"… Continue reading »

Relatively Important Post

Not my words. Relativism is powerful in Western life, evidenced in many areas — from the decline in the study of history and English literature, through to the triumph of subjective values and conscience over moral truth and the downgrading of heterosexual marriage. One reason for optimism is that no one believes, deep down, in… Continue reading »
