Using the words Canadian and Overlord in the same sentence without the qualifier “not”, is like using the words French and spine in the same sentence and not including the qualifer “without”. Don’t make me resurect “Operation Leafblower”. You canadians behave yourselves.
And I’d like to remind them that as a trusted member of the Maple Leaf Fifth Column, I can be helpful in rounding up others to toil in their our underground hockey training camps. The New Republic, about the only left-leaning opinion magazine I can stomach, has been bought out by a Canadian media conglomerate. • Read More »
Al Gore was recently exposed as a fraud on the subject of energy conservation. Although his supporters didn’t contradict the findings, they said his rapacious consumption was okay since he used “green” energy when possible and even bought carbon offsets. First, it’s interesting to compare Gore’s hypocrisy to the hippie-like habits of former Sen. Bill • Read More »
“Al-qaeda, through it’s completely impossible demands, is very clearly entirely unappeasable. And we know it’s unappeasable, if it were appeasable, the French would have appeased it by now.” – Andrews Roberts, on Hugh Hewitt yesterday
Or does using “carbon credits” as a means to justify your eco-unfriendly ways sound a lot like what caused the Civil War Draft Riots, where money could be used to skirt civic duty. No cheap grace, no cheap environmentalism.
Rod Dreher asks, “Which was the better band in the 80’s: U2 or REM?” Oh boy. This is a toughie… Based just on what they did in the 80’s, I’d say REM. “Murmurs” was earth-shattering, and “Life’s Rich Pagaent” is darn near the best album of all time. But it’s *real* close, as “The Unforgettable • Read More »
The Oscar for best documentary was handed out to An Inconvenient Truth last night. Pardon me for not getting excited, but this is roughly equivalent to Michael W. Smith winning a Dove Award; Even Arminius knew this was pre-destined. The Oscars are the epitome of American culture excess, and giving an award to a movie • Read More »
A really, really REALLY bad idea won’t see the light of day. And statements like this make me question whose side the Washington Post is on. “Then for an entire week, as members of Congress returned home for a recess, Murtha refused to speak further. Democratic leaders failed to step into the vacuum, and Republicans • Read More »
Many sentiments I don’t agree with, but it is funny. A few words in defense of our country…
It’s not enough that they’re arming themselves, we’re recruiting them for the cops now, too. I tell ya, they’re coming for us.
John Derbyshire mentions Flash for Freedom! in The Corner today, and I heartily concur. One of many great reads in the Flashman series.
./~ …from Chimpan-A to Chimpan-Z ./~ (Explainer here.) We need to start arming ourselves now, I tell you. They’re coming.
One of the good ones has gone. The preening egos of today’s NBA could learn a lot by studying how he lived his life. So long DJ. You’ll always be a part of Phoenix sports history.
It’s a year plus+ until the 2008 Presidential elections, but the fireworks have already started. Sit back and enjoy the show!
“Dukakis left office with an approval rating of negative 6% which means 100% of the electorate didn’t like him, and of those 100%, 6% made a point of calling the pollsters back to emphasize how much they didn’t like him.”— Dean Barnett
I’ve been holding off commenting about the “Victory Caucus” because until we know what we’re looking for in a war, it’s hard to claim we’ve won. Victory in Iraq technically was won a long time ago: The leader of the country was deposed, and we were left in charge. It’s the peace that’s not turning • Read More »
Arizona state House votes down an amendment banning obscene mudflaps. Remember, these people are paid with your tax dollars to talk about stuff like this.
“MADNESS??!!! THIS…IS…*CONGRESS*!!!!!!.” Explainer here. Via Murdoc.
Pam Goronkin is the new head of the Downtown Tempe Community, and either completely lacks a sense of irony or hasn’t driven down Mill Avenue recently. “On Mill, we have a sense of place, of history, we’re real.” As real as the models in an Abercrombie and Fitch ad. “Malls are not bad places.

If you are a guy past puberty, buy one of these:
I’m thankful that the news media have finally found a story more important than the death of Anna Nicole Smith. Although I’m sad it turned out to be Britney shaving her head. PS: All apologies for the lack of posts, but I’ve been floored with the flu.
Feb. 14 isn’t just Valentine’s Day, but also the anniversary of Arizona’s statehood.We were the last state admitted in the continental U.S., back in 1912. I leave you with Frank Lloyd Wright’s vision of what our State Capitol building should have looked like:
Man in Batman getup forced school lockdown. No word if The Riddler was chasing him off the school grounds.
