It’s not illegal if you walk backwards when you step across the border

An appeals court in Kansas has recently concluded that just being in the country illegally doesn’t necessarily violate the law, so “…a judge cannot deny probation and require a jail sentence for a convicted drug dealer who is an illegal alien.” Hmmm. So you can be doing something that is illegal, but that doesn’t necessarily […]

Libs can’t take criticism

Criticize a conservative or a Republican and you’re simply pointing out the obvious. Criticize a liberal or a Democrat and you’re “attacking” them. Hillary Clinton runs a despicable ad attacking President Bush, and when the White House responds, Hillary says that the White House “attacked” her. The audacity of these people! Democrats say Bush lied […]

I’m not a professional blogger, nor do I desire to be, but I’ve been trying to improve my Google PageRank for the past several months, so I’ve been looking into how it works a bit. Just today I found a very convenient page for estimating when the next PageRank update will be: Page Rank Export […]

Comments Off on Seafood imports from China raised in untreated sewage

There’s two things funny about this story in the Telegraph. First, the British apparently refer to “math” as “maths.” Ha, ha. I didn’t know that. The second thing is that these experts don’t know what they’re talking about. I was one of these “shy children.” I didn’t ever want to raise my hand in class–even […]

Fred Thompson had a nice piece on National Review yesterday. So many people seem to be clueless about the situation in the Middle East. It seems like everyone thinks that because Israel is militarily advantaged that it is the Palestinians who are the victims. The restraint that Israel shows never ceases to amaze me. Far […]

Have you ever heard of “wetware”? A while back I subscribed to Merriam Webster’s “Word of the Day,” and yesterday’s word was “wetware.” It means “the human brain or a human being considered especially with respect to human logical and computational capabilities.” That’s a pretty interesting word. I’m going to have to use it sometime. […]
