Your Centrifuges Have Worms!

November 30, 2010 | By admindude | Comments Off on Your Centrifuges Have Worms! | Filed in: Uncategorized.

No, not these kind! Much worse, as in Stuxnet. The IT geek in me is both fascinated and frightened by what happened to the Islamic Republic of Iran’s nuclear program not too long ago.  It is wickedly brilliant, suggesting a team of VERY smart people with a lot of hard to obtain information at their • Read More »

Give a little, save a lot

November 30, 2010 | By admindude | Comments Off on Give a little, save a lot | Filed in: Uncategorized.

If there’s a better gift to give this Christmas than the gift of health, I don’t know what it is.  $15 can provide clean water for an entire year $25 will provide medicine to remove intestinal parasites from 500 children.  $60 is enough to get a family farm started so families can begin to feed • Read More »

Quote of the Day, 11/29 Edition

November 29, 2010 | By exurbankevin | Comments Off on Quote of the Day, 11/29 Edition | Filed in: Current Events, Economics, History, Kevin, Quotes.

Given the current climate, a quote from the 19th Century seems apropos. “Find out just what any people will quietly submit to and you have the exact measure of the injustice and wrong which will be imposed on them.” –Frederick Douglass More …

We few, we happy few

November 29, 2010 | By admindude | Comments Off on We few, we happy few | Filed in: Uncategorized.

The slow slide of the United Kingdom into “Londoninistan” is pretty well documented by Mark Steyn and others, but maybe there is still a little fight left in Great Britain after all.  The Not Ashamed campaign is about standing together and speaking up for the Christian foundation of our society. We are motivated to do • Read More »

Connections?

November 27, 2010 | By admindude | Comments Off on Connections? | Filed in: Uncategorized.

Today, Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) closed down a bunch of websites, ostensibly to combat counterfeiting.  It gets complicated, especially since the seized sites were dodgy at best.  However, with COICA lurking and talk of “net-neutrality” this is scarry stuff. The Hillbuzz boys wonder if this is connected to the Pigford case. “The wha…?” you • Read More »

The Congress that Stole Freedom

November 26, 2010 | By admindude | Comments Off on The Congress that Stole Freedom | Filed in: Uncategorized.

COICA is not an acronym much of us know about right now.  That is going to change though, because it represents a major change in government regulation of the internet.  Most of you probably did not hear that it passed the Senate Judiciary Committee, which was not an accident.  After all, why would the big • Read More »

About that Ban…

November 24, 2010 | By admindude | Comments Off on About that Ban… | Filed in: Uncategorized.

This is discouraging.  Getting an earmark for $200 million doesn’t look good, especially when dozens of your Republican colleagues agreed to ban them just a few days ago. Jon Kyl should know better, especially with the current mood in the country against taxpayer-funded programs. Looks like pork remains on the menu.  Seems like one of • Read More »

Target the man, not the machine

“If a man can take over a plane with a pair of fingernail clippers, then he probably doesn’t need the fingernail clippers to take over the plane.”  – In Jennifer’s Head One of the tenets of military training, and in fact defensive training of any kind, is that there are no such things as a • Read More »

Nobody puts Bristol in a corner

November 23, 2010 | By admindude | Comments Off on Nobody puts Bristol in a corner | Filed in: Uncategorized.

Rioting broke out tonight in the nation’s three remaining Blockbuster Video stores soon after it was announced that movie and TV star Jennifer Grey had beaten Tea-Party favourite Bristol Palin and some other guy in this season of Dancing with the Stars.  Tea Party activists were taking out their frustration over the loss by smashing • Read More »

Timing is Everything

November 23, 2010 | By admindude | Comments Off on Timing is Everything | Filed in: Uncategorized.

We’ve all heard that “timing is everything” throughout our lives.  In this case, South Korea demonstrated it in an ironic and cutsey manner.  You can’t make some things up, like this: Let’s say you want to take a trip to the Exotic Orient.  Some places on your list may include a Shinto temple in Japan, • Read More »

You’ve Been Warned…

November 22, 2010 | By admindude | Comments Off on You’ve Been Warned… | Filed in: Uncategorized.

It seems everything has warning labels on it these days.  I guess when somebody with no common-sense or who is not familiar with the concept of cause and effect, bad things can happen. Consider the policies of the Democrat Party… They are harmful but many people aren’t aware of just how dangerous they are. Via • Read More »

The Opening

November 21, 2010 | By admindude | Comments Off on The Opening | Filed in: Uncategorized.

There was a movie that opened on Friday.  No, I did not see it but it looks worthwhile based upon what this article said. I don’t think it received the same attention as The Inconvenient Truth or the Day After Tomorrow but it could have a lasting impact. Here is the trailer you probably didn’t • Read More »

“Unlimited power is apt to corrupt the minds of those who possess it; and this I know, my lords, that where laws end, tyranny begins”  “Necessity is the plea for every infringement of human freedom. It is the argument of tyrants; it is the creed of slaves.”   – William Pitt the Younger  More …

Strong as Steele?

November 20, 2010 | By admindude | Comments Off on Strong as Steele? | Filed in: Uncategorized.

When Michael Steele became chair of the RNC in 2009, I was encouraged.  After all, he was the Lieutenant Governor of Maryland (a heavily Democrat state) and was an up and coming leader in the GOP. Then came his tenure at the RNC… From the outside, it appeared to be a chaotic and ineffective time.  • Read More »

Let’s say you are an insurgent outsider who beat an incumbent insider in your party’s primary for an open Senate seat.  The Tea Party throws their support behind you, the Cocktail Party (aka “GOP Establishment”) offers tepid support.  The Left goes nuts and the media has a field day.  Then you lose in the general • Read More »

America’s Toughest Media Hound™ manages to one-up himself. Actually, more like Seven-Up himself.  Joe Arpaio is creating an armed “Immigration Posse” to combat illegal immigration, and Hollywood actors Steven Seagal and Lou Ferrigno, along with Dick Tracy and Wyatt Earp, have signed up.  Because nothing says “law and order” like someone who’s best known for • Read More »
