Whataweekend linkfest

So, wait. Obama has known for months that Iran had made serious progress with nukes. Hmmm.Doesn't that mean someone has to answer for giving Bush the "Iran has no nukes, is no where near developing them" intel that the Dems and left used as yet another hammer to use against the last American president? I'm just asking. And here are a bunch of interesting links, offered without comment, for your Sunday reading between games:Religion: A Must Read: Giving Birth and "Yes" Inside Catholic: … [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...]

Feel the Gleichschaltung

Reading through this transcript, I was struck by two things. One was the aroma of self-intoxication. These bureaucrats and artists and activists are utterly besotted by the contemplation of their own virtue. They know what’s good for the country, and what’s good for you, and they’re willing to devote themselves ceaselessly to making it happen.The second thing that strikes one about this transcript is the aura of menace that floats just behind the talk of passion, pushing the president’s agenda, … [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...]

Prayer Requests & Housekeeping

Okay, it's a hodge-podge, but I have a lot to cover.First up, if you are inclined to prayer, please pray for a boy in critical condition: Ben had a heart attack a few days ago on the soccer field. His heart attack it turns out, was from a huge blood clot in his leg, which has since been amputated below the knee. He is stabilizing but still in need of much prayer.Also, some may recall praying for blogger Greg Cotharn's sister-in-law Lisa as she underwent some adult-stem-cell therapies. … [Read more...]

Yeehaw! A rootin’ tootin’ round-up

I have so many tabs open on stories or blogs I want to bring to your attention, that I must do a roundup or I will never get done some work that I really, REALLY have to do tonight. Think of an editor...glaring across his desk, his fingers tap-tap-tapping as he glares at me and says..."you got that piece done, yet? You wanna get paid?"So here goes: Those wacky sea-farin' womyn are at it again, climbing aboard boats, heading out to international waters and doing the "I'm now a priest in the … [Read more...]

Nosing around the ‘net

Because I am now exactly 24 hours away from needing to be outta here and starting on our long-awaited vacation (it's been three years since we went to Ireland, a trip chronicled here, by my 15 year old son, Buster) and I've never seen a man who needs a vacation more than my husband.Buster is being difficult about it, btw. At 15, he feels he should not have to accompany his parents on a vacation, but since he is basically a sunny and bouyant sort of kid, he's acquiescing. It helps that we're … [Read more...]

A final round-up on Benedict-the-polarizing!

Now that today has been, basically, all-Benedict-all-the-time, I thought I would end with a round up of links from Christian bloggers and non-Christian bloggers, although I will not link to kos or Democratic Underground. You know how to get there if you want to.I'm feeling generous right now so let's start of with Sock Monkey who is just fit to be tied and ready to bolt to the Anglicans. Jane is NOT happy, as she makes clear in her comments on the posting below, too, a post wherein I explore … [Read more...]
