Just for clarification. If I had the nerve I would say things about the O that would REALLY get me in trouble. Maybe next January I can let it all out.

Next January, we will all be letting it out as they are shown the door. Good Lord willing and the stupid people don't vote. Posted Image

Alaska officials release final batch of Palin emails

While last the release of Palin e-mails in June drew widespread news coverage, the release Thursday of the much smaller batch attracted less attention.


Andrew Sullivan is deeply disappointed.

‘Lunch-In’ Protests Crackdown on Homemade Lunches

“Even though my four-year-old and two-year-old will both be starting at public schools in a few months, I did not agree to let the government make every decision about how they are raised,” Jennifer Biddison said in advance of attending this afternoon’s “seditious lunch,” according to a press release. “Just because I choose to let government schools teach my kids math and reading doesn’t mean I want them to dictate other things such as how they will eat and how they will dress. I’m quite content with the way I am raising them, and I ask the government to honor my choices in such family matters.”

Today’s “protest is part of The National Center for Public Policy Research’s Occupy Occupy D.C.’ events at Freedom Plaza,” a press release announced. “The National Center obtained a five-week permit from the U.S. Park Service that forces the Occupy D.C. encampment to share the park between February 12 and March 15.”

"The tusks which clashed in mighty brawls
Of mastodons, are billiard balls.
The sword of Charlemagne the Just
Is Ferric Oxide, known as rust.
The grizzly bear, whose potent hug,
Was feared by all, is now a rug.
Great Caesar's bust is on the shelf,
And I don't feel so well myself."
On the Vanity of Earthly Greatness

Richard Dawkins: I can't be sure God does not exist

Well it's a start.

A young man who wishes to remain a sound Atheist cannot be too careful of his reading. There are traps everywhere--'Bibles laid open, millions of surprises,' as Herbert says, 'fine nets and stratagems.' God is, if I may say it, very unscrupulous.
C.S. Lewis

This Koran-burning riot is spreading to other countries. It's not going to end well. I have to wonder if Iran is going to use it as an excuse to launch a nuclear warhead.

In fact, I can't help but wonder if they are behind it.

What a tinderbox.

At this point I don;t believe we can say they are behind this.


Will they and those they fund make use of it? Nah! That would never happen, and only an Islamiphobe would even think such scurrilous thought about these misunderstood societal/religious reformers.

This is why we have to stay involved. Supporting those who do genuinely seek to reform Islam.

In no particular order, and a very short incomplete list. They are out there unfortunately so many of them are not anti- American so the Left doesn't support them, and they are Muslims and so the Right doesn't either....and yes it is frustrating. Remember what the students in the Green Revolution were shouting while they were trying to bring down the mullahs...Allahu Akbar

Veena Malik

Mohammed VI King of Morocco


More can be found in these two books. I know this may come as a shock, that I have a book. Posted Image

Racing for Israel at Daytona
Jonathan Neumann

If you’re watching the Daytona 500 – ‘‘The Great American Race’’ – this Sunday, look out for the No. 49 Robinson-Blakeney Toyota, sponsored by the non-profit, America-Israel Racing, and driven by J.J. Yeley, one of the top drivers in NASCAR.

Conceived last year by two Charlotte, N.C., men, America-Israel racing looks ‘‘to promote awareness of and support by Americans for Israel, the only true democracy in the Middle East’’ and hopes ‘‘to educate Americans on the importance [of] the United States’ relationship with Israel through exposure provided by one of the largest spectator sports in the world.’’

Posted Image

It may seem odd to make such a statement in sport – a realm often idealized as separate from politics. But it’s not about politics, they insist. And though advertising costs can run into the millions, they also note that it’s not a product they are trying to sell. Rather, ‘‘it’s a belief.’’ For probably the only televised sport where races are preceded by prayer, perhaps beliefs are appropriate.
