Gates Has Ayes

Defense Secretary Robert Gates said today that he agrees with Obama’s decision to replace Gen. Stanley McChrystal as the top US commander in Afghanistan. Of course he does. McChrystal just demonstrated what happens to people that disagree with Obama. Technically, McChrystal ‘resigned‘, but in actuality McChrystal ‘got resigned‘. There’s a big difference, and Gates didn’t … Continue reading

2010 Texas State Republican Party Platform

The Texas Republican Party has approved their 2010 platform, and I think that it might be better than the new school standards. This is a long post, but there is so much good stuff. A few choice excerpts: The embodiment of the conservative dream in America is Texas. We further support abolition of federal agencies … Continue reading

An Ounce of Prevention

I had an awesome idea for a post today. It was going to all about how the jury on ‘Anthropogenic Global Warming’ is still out and how we can’t spend billions and billions of dollars on some crackpot theory that a bunch of ‘climate scientists’ are pushing. At the same time as they’re getting tons … Continue reading

Poll: What’s the best way to deal with the census?

I haven’t posted in the last few days, and I apologize. I’ve been laying low. A census worker came to my house because I didn’t turn in the form they mailed to me, so I had to hide. They even went next door to see if my neighbors would rat me out, but they (thankfully) … Continue reading

I Never Thought Of That

Sometimes you hear an idea so perfectly formed that you wonder why it’s not already the common wisdom. It seems obvious in retrospect, and yet it’s truth has eluded all but one genius. I found the image on the right on the internet today. I was stunned. This explains everything. Why BP was allowed to … Continue reading

Not Qualified For Office

Well, here’s an early taste of the 2010 election for you: Orly Taitz may well be the Republican candidate for California Attorney General. For those not in the know, Orly Taitz is perhaps the prototypical Birther. She’s racked up at least $20,000 in court fines for filing frivolous lawsuits challenging Barack Obama’s right to be … Continue reading

Worst Case Scenario

There’s been a lot of talk lately about the Transocean Deepwater Horizon/BP oil leak in the Gulf of Mexico. From Bloomberg: “The worst-case scenario is Christmas time,” Dan Pickering, the head of research at energy investor Tudor Pickering Holt & Co. in Houston, said. “This process is teaching us to be skeptical of deadlines.” Actually, … Continue reading

Vier mehr Tage! Vier mehr Tage!

Okay, so apparently not all of you prepared for the end of WWII the same way I did. I wrote yesterday about why Horst Köhler, the former President of Germany, resigned Monday. In doing so, I quoted the statements that proved to be his undoing, but didn’t translate them from German. So what he said … Continue reading

Four more days! Four more days!

German President Horst Köhler resigned Monday. There was widespread criticism about his basic political philosophy after he said the following on Deutschlandradio: “Meine Einschätzung ist aber, dass insgesamt wir auf dem Wege sind, doch auch in der Breite der Gesellschaft zu verstehen, dass ein Land unserer Größe mit dieser Außenhandelsorientierung und damit auch Außenhandelsabhängigkeit auch … Continue reading

Obama: A ‘B’ Mao?

Some of you might have noticed that I like anagrams. That’s because they can illustrate alternate meanings in an elegant way. One classic example is “Grow a Spine”, which (when rearranged) spells “Spiro Agnew”. And “Spine”, which has it’s own body-part anagram. An example from this site is “Elena Kagan…or Nae, Ken, a Gal”, which … Continue reading
