Getting Mesa’s goat

I love this idea. The $10,000 contract with Arizona Herdsman Eco Goats, a local company, to clear the rocky slopes of weeds by the water retention ponds ends either in June or whenever the job is done, Satter said. If not rooted out, the weeds can ultimately erode berms, earthen walls that prevent runoff, or • Read More »

The conventional wisdom is that Specter’s defection to the Democrats is proof that the GOP needs to move to the center if it wants to have any success in 2010 and 2012. Me, I agree with Jonathan Chait: It’s just proof that Specter is willing to do anything to get elected. But if it is • Read More »

… who needs enemas? Jonathan Chait rips Arlen Specter a new one. When a politician switches parties, it’s customary for the party he’s abandoned to denounce him as an unprincipled hack, and the party he’s joined to praise him as a brave convert who’s genuinely seen the light. But I think it’s pretty clear that • Read More »

Arlen Specter has switched to a Mac. It’s kind of a… bummer. For Mac users. Seriously. First, Al Gore, and now this. Oh well, at least El Rushbo still has his Macs.

You mean to tell me, Jon, that our current President chose to conduct a photo-op rather than worry about national security concerns? That is soooo unlike him. What’ll really be fun to watch, though, is how the left will try to blame this on Chimpy Bu$hitler. Air Force One flied, New Yorkers cried!

President Photo Op.

It’s a good thing the press keeps assuring us that Obama is the most smartest president evah. Cause this seems really, really dumb: WASHINGTON – An administration official says a presidential Boeing 747 and a fighter jet flew low near ground zero in New York City Monday because the White House Military Office wanted to • Read More »

Since the days of the Reagan revolution, the conservative movement has relied on support from a coalition of national defense hawks, fiscal conservatives and social conservatives. Which of these three branches is the weakest in a post-Bush G.O.P., and what can be done about it in order to insure success in 2010, 2012 and beyond? • Read More »

Poor Obama.

“Mr. President, if you could just switch your bowling and golf scores, you’d be pretty good at both.” Sure 90+ people are dead in Mexico City, thousands more are infected across the globe and millions are fearful. But what I’m really worried about how inconvenient this flu is to Obama’s schedule! From today’s Washington Post: • Read More »

First, there was Mexico’s gruesome drug war. Over the weekend, deadly Swine Flu emptied the streets of Mexico City. And this morning, a 6.0 earthquake hit southwestern Mexico. The residents are filling the streets again to avoid their shaking buildings. Pray for the people of Mexico.

If you’ve ever taken a self-defense class, the first thing your instructor tells you before one-on-one practice or a sparring match is “Don’t use any force that you’re not willing to take in return.” If it can be proven that Obama’s utter silence on the swine flu outbreak and how his administration has failed to • Read More »

Friday Music Blogging – Fishbone

Hey! It’s Friday! Get up and dance! Ahh, the 80’s, when all we had to worry about was if that senile cowboy Ronald Reagan was going to blow us all up, rather than today’s fear of killing ourselves with man-made hype and pseudo-science global warming.

Future history, or hopeful future?

I get a really weird vibe off of this upcoming History Channel series. LIFE AFTER PEOPLE: The Series begins in the moments after people disappear. As each day, month, and year passes, the fate of a particular environment, city or theme is disclosed. Special effects, combined with interviews from top experts in the fields of • Read More »
