Comments Off on Japan should defend U.S. from ICBM attacks: panel

For those of you who don’t know, Japan’s constitution prevents them from taking aggressive action. It is so strict that when a North Korean ship attacked the Japanese Self-Defense Forces a few years back, the JSDF were apparently not allowed to fire back because the North Koreans were not using enough fire power to sink […]

Americans give record $295 billion to charities in 2006

Okay, let’s get rid of this stereotype that Americans are stingy. It’s about time that self-righteous hollywood stars and irrelevant has-beens like Jimmy Carter quit saying things like rich states “don’t give a damn” about people in poor countries. The ABC report notes that the governments of “many other countries, such as Norway, Portugal and […]

Double standards

Filed under Politics

I don’t recall the AP ever running a story about Bill Maher saying that he wished Dick Cheney had been killed while he was in Afghanistan because “people wouldn’t be dying needlessly” (I couldn’t find one in their archives, either). Yet they see fit to run a story on Ann Coulter mocking Bill Maher and […]

Who loves you, baby?

Liberals claim that the only thing conservatives care about is making more money. I’m sure many of you saw the stories about the research that proves exactly the opposite last year, but it was before my blog was started, so I want to share it with you just in case you missed it. The book, […]

The Politically Incorrect Americanism of Alba, Pacino, and Arnold

Comments Off on The Politically Incorrect Americanism of Alba, Pacino, and Arnold

Mary Katharine Ham, the managing editor for Townhall.com, has an excellent piece on assimilation. She quotes pro-American comments by Jessica Alba, Al Pacino and Arnold Schwarzenegger and then the reactions from the anti-American, anti-melting pot, hate-filled, leftist, illegal immigration supporters.

Comments Off on Father of scientific climatology calls man-made global warming theory ‘hooey’

The “father of scientific climatology” says that talk about man-made global warming is a bunch of hooey. When are people going to wake up and realize that we’re all being had by people trying to make money? Reid Bryson, known as the father of scientific climatology, considers global warming a bunch of hooey. The UW-Madison […]

Why put the animal down?

Comments Off on Why put the animal down?

In February this year, a jaguar killed a zookeeper. The other zookeepers put the animal down. Rush Limbaugh made the following comment on his radio show: Even if it hadn’t attacked the other rescuers, and it didn’t say attack, it said it was “approaching.” They couldn’t take any chances. In this case, I understand it. […]

Near-death experiences

Today’s sermon was about the rich man and Lazarus. The guest speaker today made some interesting observations about the passage, but he mentioned near-death experiences in passing and how so many people see a “bright light.” I don’t know what today’s speaker thinks about near-death experiences, because he didn’t elaborate, but I am skeptical. If […]

Comments Off on Studies say death penalty deters crime

It’s certainly surprising to see a story like this on AP, but here it is. Some interesting highlights: The reports have horrified death penalty opponents and several scientists, who vigorously question the data and its implications. …”Science does really draw a conclusion. It did. There is no question about it,” said Naci Mocan, an economics […]

Why do liberals blame the US for the Iraqi death toll?

Why is it that liberals like to place banners on their websites showing the Iraqi death toll? Obviously, it is because they believe that the US is to blame for the casualties. Victor Davis Hanson notes on National Review: Somehow “thousands have been killed” is never qualified as those mostly butchered and blown up by […]
