Midway

If Hindus were terrorists, we’d be fighting Hindus. If Buddhists were terrorists we’d be fighting Buddhists. If atheists were terrorists we’d be fighting atheists. The war against terror has nothing to do with hatred and everything to do with terror.

Found: Hide-and-Go-Seek Champion

Well, everyone’s talking about Osama. It’s almost getting boring. Is there any news that has nothing to do with Osama getting killed? Hmm… Well, it’s not the sort of thing I usually talk about, but I guess a little change couldn’t hurt: Kate Middleton went shopping at a common market. And the number of pictures […]

Rulers Without Measure

The likelihood of Elena Kagan’s approval by the Senate is high, not because she’s qualified, but because she knows the right people, talks the right way and has the right mannerisms. While the people in Washington are often — and correctly — called “the ruling minority,” Angelo M. Codevilla with the American Spectator‘s latest issue […]

Climate? How Things Have Changed… Part III

(It’s been a long time, but this is the third and final part of this series. You can also read Part I and Part II.) We’ve already talked about the falsehood of climate change, and that the only reason to hang on to such an unsupported theory is faith/religion. Where is the support for climate […]

Christ-mas

Some have argued that Christmas is a pagan holiday.  American Thinker’s Selwyn Duke explains, “I’m sure you’ve heard the charges. Christmas is a ‘pagan holiday,’ they say. It originated with a celebration dedicated to Saturn (the Roman god of agriculture) which, upon coming to full flower, took place between December 17 and 23. Or perhaps […]
