Closing In On Zarqawi

Al Qaeda’s leader in Iraq Zarqawi must be getting really nervous. Another of his aides (I think that makes three in the last month or so) has been captured, this time in Baghdad: Iraqi security forces have captured a senior aide of al Qaeda leader in Iraq Abu Musab al-Zarqawi in Baghdad, a Defence Ministry […]

Spanish American War Finally Over

The permanence of temporary government policies can be seen in this post by Mac Ranger where the US has decided the tax used to fund the Spanish American war is finally not needed anymore. How is it this was not done under the last 6 years of Republican Congressional control?  The word ‘leadership’ comes to […]

To Die For Nothing

Mark Coffey has a post on the despicable actions of Kissenger and Nixon who, apparently, said they could allow communist take over of Vietnam if we could get our troops out.  After all those deaths what those people died for was ‘expediency’: This latest revelation only adds to a body of evidence that begins with […]

This Is Pure Horror

Published by under All General Discussions

*** Important Update At The End *** Imperfection has become the reason to abort. I am stridently pro-life. I am not ready to make all abortions illegal, but I think we can all make the case that treatable birth defects (also known as human imperfections) should NEVER be a reason to kill a human being. […]

Almost Bailed On Reps on Immigration

I was thinking what kind of political loss would straighten up the Conservatives so the would accept their border and employer enforcement enhancements and accept the guest worker program. I was thinking if Rick Santorum had been on the hard line side (instead of the hard success side) then he could be a reasonable sacrificial […]

X-Dud

Published by under All General Discussions

The new X-Men movie is fair. But if you expect to feel like good has triumphed over evil this one leaves you pondering. Good movie, just not what one wants from a Marvel Comic. I won’t spoil it for folks, and I may be too harsh. But I found the movie wanting. At least is […]

Congress Opposing Voters

Published by under All General Discussions

In a fit of twisted logic, Congressional Republicans are afraid they will get voted out of office is they support any leniancy on immigrants – any! Rep. E. Clay Shaw Jr. (Fla.), who is not known as an immigration hard-liner but is one of the party’s most vulnerable incumbents, said there is virtually no chance […]

Rep Jefferson – Africa – Joe Wilson?

Published by under All General Discussions

*** Updates at the end *** Mac Ranger has been hinting that there are possible connections to Joe Wilson and Rep William Jefferson (bribery scandal). Turns out there may be.

Tha Anchoress Plot – Democracy

Published by under All General Discussions

I really enjoy the reading The Anchoress because she says things in such a way as that light bulbs start popping on with every sentence.  Some people just have a frim grip on the world at large.  We all spend our lives tearing down our initial impressions (usually from childhood) in order to learn the […]
