Momma Says Spock You OUT.
A view (that I agree with) as to why canceling the “Terror Futures market” was a dumb idea. What part of DARPA’s mission don’t congresscritters understand?
J.R.R. Tolkein – the anti-Wagner?
Stories like this almost convince me that I’d be at home in Texas. (Shhhh, don’t tell my wife! *grin*)
I admire Pres. Bush’s chutzpah with regard to the Iraq situation. Heck, I even think that he and his administration have the right idea with the flypaper methodology. There’s just one potentially fatal flaw to all of this that I haven’t heard anyone mention: from now on, Bush’s opponents could conceivably blame him for every future casualty we incur in Iraq. It potentially could turn in to a real issue for the Democrats (“Why, if Bush hadn’t said that idiotic thing, our boys would be coming home in choppers, not in plastic bags!”).
Then again, perhaps I should have greater faith in the intelligence of the average American voter.
What in the bloody blue blazes are the Dems thinking? It’s not witty, it’s not original, it doesn’t even scratch the surface of “insightful”. What it is is extremely enlightening. It reinforces (for me, at least) the utter obsession that the Dems have with Bush. They just can’t stand the fact that he won in 2000. I’m wondering what it’s going to take to make them realize just how out of touch they are with everyone but their left-wing barking moonbat core constituency.
Oh…my…gosh. I can’t believe what I just witnessed on CNN/HN. Dr. Sanjay Gupta (CNN’s medical correspondent) did a mini-piece on a recent study showing that only 11% of “backpack-related injuries” actually affect the back itself. The majority are actually head injuries.
Now, this might seem innocuous enough, but he concluded with a statment that ran thus: (I’m paraphrasing here)
Even though backpack-related back injuries are not that common, children should still be taught proper backpack usage and proper backpack safety.
Maybe I’m reading too much into this, or maybe our society has gone completely insane. “Proper backpack usage”? Wow.
I can just see the Health class segment that NJEA is developing for next year’s curriculum. Sheesh.
While watching the CNN Headline News feed here at work, I was struck by how they’re starting to get some thing right, and yet are so far off base in many other ways.
A CNN reporter was giving a rundown of the events in Israel in the past two days and referred to two Hamas “militants” killed in Apache missile strikes as “victims” of the Israeli action. It almost made me vomit. Hamas… victims? I can’t even put my fury on that point to words.
However, this particular reporter then referred to the Apache strikes as “retaliation for Sunday’s killing of four IDF soldiers”. First time I’ve seen/heard any MMT (Mainstream Media Type) actually refer to these strikes in their proper context.
*sigh* Close, but no cigar, CNN.
