Happy Halloween

Tonight I'll be dressed as Jack the Ripper, and I'll be ripping into some party snacks at a friend's house.  I may upload pictures if I don't look too ridiculous. Last year I went as a zombie, and put together an intense gore-fest of a costume.  I had this eye-thing crafted out of cotton balls and… Continue reading »

My Final Thoughts on This Election

*12-18-09 Read this again.  To my delight, it is holding up well* I'm rapidly running out of ways to criticize Barack Obama.  Over the past two years, I've been lamenting at various times (and in no particular order): Obama's inexperience, questionable associations, stated policy goals, inept assessments of world events, pandering to abortion extremists, Chicago-style thug… Continue reading »

I Must Acquire Fable II

I like to think of myself as fairly grown-up.  I can easily turn down the childish pleasures in which many of my contemporaries (or, less grandly, my "age-group") seem to lose themselves so readily.  But there are certain things that I find I must own.  I develop what feels like a small void in my… Continue reading »

Some of you may have seen the news recently that Blackwater is putting together a crew to act as escort for ships in the Gulf of Aden.  This is an encouraging development, as efforts by regional and US forces to counter the pirates have been only somewhat successful.  There simply aren't enough resources being dedicated… Continue reading »

Greens and Red Ink

So this little Greenie shop closed in my city, and it somehow made the news.  I am consumed with spite for the Greens, not much of it undeserved.  I trace this spite to the incident in which I, refusing to give my unqualified support to the idea of massive government spending in service to the dubious cause… Continue reading »

Obama and Tax Cuts

Since the topic has been coming up lately, I submit to you this piece.  I found it reinforces my own views.  Since I am not interested in making a substantial post of my own, you must subsist on my regurgitations.  How's that for imagery? Obama’s New Tax WelfareBehind the 95. By Peter Ferrara Barack Obama… Continue reading »

Grandfather Passed Away

All, My Granddad passed away about a half hour ago.  He had been ailing for more than a year, really two, and deteriorated rapidly in the last few months.  Towards the end he was hardly the same man, barely recalling who we were.  But glimmers of his personality were still visible sometimes.  I am at once saddened… Continue reading »

When Conservatives Get Angry, We Say Mean Things. When Liberals Get Angry…

The Rage That’s Not On Your Front PageThe liberal media frets over conservative anger, but are blind to a torrent of liberal hate. By Michelle Malkin When a few unruly McCain-Palin supporters show their anger at campaign rallies, it’s national news. It’s an epidemic of “Weimar-like rage” and “violent escalation of rhetoric,” according to New… Continue reading »

Hey Liberals: This is Troopergate

Concerns about Sarah Palin's possible misuse of her office are addressed in about as fair a way I can imagine by Jim Geraghty.  He lays out some of the bald facts of what happened, as well as the reasoning behind Palin's insistence on the matter.  The idea that she abused her power has been discounted by… Continue reading »
