Missing Persons and more

Some completely unconnected links:Missing persons: Blogger Bookworm is sending out an SOS to other bloggers trying to alert people to this story about a couple who may be lost in the snows:Ryan Barrett and his girlfriend, Viola Liu left on Saturday, January 16, at 2:00 p.m. to go camping with their three dogs (2 huskies & a lab) in his red 2005 Toyota Tacoma pick up truck (with shell.) They were scheduled to return home on Monday evening, January 18, 2010. We have not heard from … [Read more...]

Random Must-Reads

Collected in my tab-bar since I started feeling cruddy - might as well share with you all the things I have either read or "been meaning to get to reading..." All submitted mostly without comment, because I'm still not 100%."We are at war...":The president went on to say that while America will strengthen its defenses, "we will not succumb to a siege mentality that sacrifices the open society and liberties and values that we cherish as Americans, because great and proud nations don't … [Read more...]

Serving up hot links…

There is so much out there, let's take a quick look around, shall we?Students in Iran, just wanna know: "Obama, are you with us, or with the regime". Oh, don't ask Obama; he really doesn't know. All he knows is, if Bush was for you (and he was), Obama must be against you. He'd really like to help you, but it's the rules. Sorry.Keith Hennessy: Enough already, with the 'inherited debt' lies. Ed Morrissey agrees and writes:...bear in mind something Hennessey doesn’t state: these deficits … [Read more...]

Obama: "Not talking…is ridiculous"

My readers have better memories than I do. Today, I got this in the mail from an reader who asks to be identified as "A Product of Pittsburgh Steelworkers":I had written to you before the election about how then Candidate Obama would no longer talk to a television station in Florida because he didn't like some of the questions they asked Joe Biden. See your article Obama: Yes to Iran, No to WFTV from October 2008.But even I would never have imagined that he would carry this over to an … [Read more...]

With your morning coffee…

Just in case you're wondering what it is you're drinking...Caffeine This is why the world produces more than 16 billion pounds of coffee beans per year. It's actually an alkaloid plant toxin (like nicotine and cocaine), a bug killer that stimulates us by blocking neuroreceptors for the sleep chemical adenosine. The result: you, awake.Water Hot H2O is a super solvent, leaching flavors and oils out of the coffee bean. A good cup of joe is 98.75 percent water and 1.25 percent soluble plant … [Read more...]

Catching up on random things…

The US has relinquished control of the internet. Most powerful communication tool out there -potent delivery system for the weapon of ideas. Why should we want to control that? The internet is a pain, the MSM has to keep scrubbing it all the time!Then again we apparently do want to control this?About the Vinegar at Jesus' Crucifixion: We'd talked about it a little here, but Julie at Happy Catholics has been resourceful about it and you'll want to read what she's dug up. It's VERY … [Read more...]

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...]
