Lymphoma & Heart By-Pass in America

So, much better over here; thanks for all of your good wishes. I think a combination of a super-busy weekend, some lapses with the vitamins and a bug all created a sort of perfect storm over here -was never feverish, just lots of joint pain- and for some reason today my tongue hurts, but otherwise, the ship is aright. But I had some serious news over the weekend, about some friends of ours. 1) Adam, age 18, was away at school and feeling short of breath. First they thought it was a cold, … [Read more...]

Global Warming Fakery & Gore

Lots of people talking about this admission by the BBC that the earth has been cooling, not warming) for over a decade. Longtime readers know my thoughts on this hooey; I am glad to see this. There is lots of new information coming out indicating that the whole AGW boondoggle was, always, a boondoggle, ("yeah, that earth shaking data? We lost it! and those hockey sticks? Um, kinda...never mind about that!" That makes me glad, all this boondoggle-unveiling. Glad doesn't feel like much, … [Read more...]

Does Obama know who we are?

The cruelest, most violent Samurai in Japan decides he wants to become enlightened. He bursts into the home of an esteemed Zen Master and demands that the Master teach him how to become enlightened. The Zen Master looks deeply into his eyes and says, "No. You are a dirty, vicious Samurai. I will not teach you." Enraged, the Samurai yanks out his sword and places it right at the Zen Master's neck. He hollers, "Do you have any idea who I am? I am the cruelest Samurai in the world. I can … [Read more...]

Did the IOC recognise a weak horse? UPDATES

Okay, so Chicago did not get the Olympics. I was certain Obama was going to Copenhagen because it was a done deal, and he'd get a little glory for bringing the Games to his home city, and show everyone how much the world loved him. I was wrong. But this is a big story -and a bit of an embarrassment for the president- for one reason, and one reason only: the excessive, slobbering press created gigantic expectation. Listening to CNN this morning, you thought this was a "done" deal, the IOC was … [Read more...]

Headline questions

Saddest headline in my email today: George W. Bush was the last American President. I'm in sort of a cranky mood, especially after getting this thing in my email a dozen times. Not the HA post, the vid. If you can watch it you've got a stronger stomach than I do. And if you want info on the UI behind it, Malkin has it. Ugh, and ugh. So, I'll start with this video, instead. Note the line: "These are bad Americans, and they're putting our country at risk." Okay, I have questions. Oil … [Read more...]

Oh, nuts! Obama Speech Reax

I have not one, not two but three things I have to start writing for various deadlines, so I'm going to offer you a quick look-around from my email and a few sites and then tip the hat and ride off into the sunset for most of the day, pardners. Obama was going to bring "his own plan" on healthcare to the Congress yesterday, wasn't that the pre-speech meme? "This is the momentism!": Again with the Broadwayesque-Bombast. Every Obama speech is "the moment." Say, isn't that the big song from … [Read more...]

Nibbling at News & Adoring

Did I happen to mention that things are absurdly busy around here? I'm having a great deal of difficulty keeping up. I want very much to respond to Rick, and his comments in this thread, and I also have other things I want to write, including a review of a terrific book you need to buy, but today is going to be "one of those days" - not least because I have an opportunity to go to Adoration this afternoon and I won't miss it, but it will eat up lots of hours. I have to say that since my … [Read more...]

Equality of Opportunity or of Outcome?

Let's look some more at this piece by Jillian Bandes, on Obama's new "Chief Diversity Officer," Mark Lloyd. I was a bit snarky yesterday when I wrote of this newly-created office: Does it seem to you that the Obama administration makes up titles and offices the way Bluto made up new names for Animal House Pledges? “You’ll be…the Chief Diversity Officer!” “Why?” “Why the hell not?” It certainly does seem that the Obama administration is interested in creating a million … [Read more...]

Sebelius cheers thugs & a GREAT photo essay

There is offensive language on this video, so if that bothers you, you are warned. To my way of thinking the physical violence is more offensive: Source: The indispensable Hot Air The day after the attack on a fellow selling buttons and "Don't Tread on Me" flags (and which immediately preceded this event), Health Secretary Kathleen Sebelius held a conference call to the SEIU, during which she greeted her union "brothers and sisters" and said "keep doing what you're doing!" Culture of … [Read more...]

"Shut Up," he explained – UPDATED

Source <center Writes Allahpundit: "It’s practically a taunt." Indeed, I find it breathtaking. The man is supposed to be the leader of the country, the president of ALL the people, not just the ones who agree with him, and he's basically over half the nation to just shut up and fall in line. In fact, the president and his White House have been so irresponsible this week, what with their, "punch back twice as hard" nonsense (good going, there, chief) and so blatantly authoritarian with … [Read more...]
