Beheading

by Admin | Tags:
This warrants mentioning: Still, attacks come regularly against U.S. forces and civilians. Adgie said he received a report Monday that al-Qaida in Iraq beheaded a 12-year-old boy in the middle of the street because his father was cooperating with the Americans. “That’s the level of evil we’re dealing with here,” he said. Beheading It warrants mentioning because I think it... [More]

The American Media

by Admin | Tags:
Serena Williams’s words and manner were greeted with widespread disdain. “(Williams) met the media afterward like a rattlesnake meets a ground squirrel,” wrote Bill Dwyre, in the Los Angeles Times. “If anybody was expecting perspective afterward, or maybe a gracious nod to a better effort by an opponent, forget it. We had sullen Serena. Snippy Serena. Snarly Serena.”... [More]

GI Joke

GI Joke So… what crimes will General International Joe be fighting? Will he be running around in a blue helmet handing out boxes of food to warlords who take it and sell it on the black market for weapons? Will he stand on a podium in NYC while his Rolls Royce racks up unpaid parking tickets on American Taxpayer dollars urging third world countries to vote for meaningless sanctions agains... [More]

Vick's Dilemma

by Admin | Tags:
An outstanding column: Jonah Goldberg Vick might never take another snap in the NFL. Of course, other NFL players seem to get away with beating women, burglarizing neighbors, assaulting night club patrons, etc. Many people want to blame the NFL for this double standard. They have a point. There is no morality in that organization, whatever ESPN and the commissioner want to tell you. However... [More]

Dumb and Dumber

by Admin | Tags:
I can’t decide which is more stupid; the fact that lawmakers are wasting taxpayer money and time on this absolute non-issue: “The proposed ordinance states that ‘the indecent exposure of his or her undergarments’ would be unlawful in a public place. It would go in the same portion of the city code that outlaws sex in public and the exposure or fondling of genitals. The pena... [More]

Karl Rove

by Admin | Tags:
This was an outstanding interview on many levels. I highly recommend watching or reading it in its entirety: Rove I’ve taken a quick excerpt regarding Rove’s rationale behind this whole ridiculous U.S. attorney “scandal”, which really is no scandal whatsoever: MR. GREGORY: Let me ask you quickly about the, the investigation into the firing of U.S. attorneys. You have d... [More]


I’m tired of hearing how brilliant Bill Maher is. I’m sure some people find him funny, which is fine. However – and it seems silly that I need to point this out – there is a rather large difference between funny and smart. I’ve yet to hear a single intelligent statement come out of this man’s mouth. He takes a situation, simplifies it to a 3rd grade reading ... [More]


This letter is regarding the article “Dying for peace,” by Alex Babcock, published April 10. The conservatives should have kicked the anti-war demonstrators’ asses at the pro-troop rally last Tuesday. The foolishness of today’s “peace” movement in America is no different than the idiocy that plagued it in the ’60s. Some Americans can’t tell the diffe... [More]
