Stick A Fork In The VA GOP

The Virginia GOP has taken the right to select our federal representatives out of the hands of the people and put it into the hands of a handful of activists. Rep. Tom Davis (R-Va.) suffered a setback today for a future Senate campaign, as the Virginia GOP’s Central Committee opted to select the party’s nominee […]

It Seems The Israelis Did Take Out A Nuke Plant In Syria

We cannot have unstable regimes get their hands on nuclear material. Islamo Fascist jihadis armed with nuclear devices cannot be allowed to run around the world killing thousands in a blink of an eye. It seems the world owes Israel some thanks for stopping one such effort by apparently destroying a nuclear plant in the […]

The Right Keeps On Their S-CHIP Of Fools

Published by under All General Discussions

Left and right and imploding in this country. The erroneous claims of the right about the S-CHIP family were, erroneous. The Frosts did not live in a $400,000 home. They lived in a home they paid $55K for, which was the extent of their buying power. Not the $400K. They did not py nearly $50K […]

Put A Fork In The NY Times

Published by under All General Discussions

A newspaper cannot be so cold hearted as to dishonor the very people it is associated with and expect to stay alive financially. No one is going to force the NY Times to stay in business after it decided to ignore a homep-grown hero: “If he had killed 15 people, he’d be on the front […]

As Goes Diyala So Goes Iraq

I first predicted Diyala would be the tipping point in Iraq for al-Qaeda (destroyed), the Iraqi government (successful), America’s efforts in Iraq (successful) and the Democrats’ future (destroyed) in this post back in mid April. At that point very few people understood the trend lines shaping up in Iraq. Anbar was basically cleared at that […]

More Muslims Take Up Arms Against Al-Qaeda

Published by under All General Discussions

An up close and personal (and biased by liberal media commentary) story of how one Shiek and his family went from insurgents to US allies: hirteen members of Sheik Faisal Chilab’s family were slain by militants. The U.S. military arrested him twice. Three of his four sons were detained too. Chaos and fighting were so […]

General Who Headed Iraq Screw Up Blames Others – Plus My Mea Culpa

Mea Culpa Major Update: I have called on others to admit when they are wrong in their initial assessments and actions on stories recently. Trust me when I say I know how that can be difficult, but it is in the best interest of everybody in these national debates if, when first impressions are wrong, […]

Islamo Fascism Overreached And Failed Once Before, In The 1990’s

I am no an expert on Islam or the Middle East. I have a bit of a gift for observation and sorting large amounts of information for gems of insight and key importance. I can see trends sets of complex information. They are traits very useful to engineers and scientists. I believe they help me […]

More Embryonic Stem Cell Snake Oil

I have written many times about the exaggerated claims surrounding Embryonic Stem Cell made by people who should know better. The reality is Embyronic Stem Cells cannot be controlled in terms of guiding them to assume the form of replacement cells and tissues to battle diseases. In fact they tend to create tumors and cancers […]
