It’s coming too fast and furious, and in some cases is too bizarre, to summarize here. And some of the charges are not worth repeating.
While I’m sure his supporters are frustrated, they shouldn’t be.
Better to get it all out there and deal with it now. He’ll either survive it (which I think...
Sometime today the 1,000th User registered here.
I haven’t forgotten about Phase 2, it’s just that things have been a bit busy.
Thanks for signing on. I’ll stop now, before I get all reflective, and stuff.

Flickers of job hope quickly fade because there is a cloud hanging over the country’s economy and job growth:
The number of people who applied for unemployment benefits last week rose back
There were a series of coordinated terrorist attacks in Israel overnight (our time, noon Israeli time). At least six people were killed, and the attacks apparently emanated, at least in part, from Egyptian territory.
Israel Matzav is gathering the latest information.
The Israel Defense Forces reports that the attacks started from Gaza, although...
Israel Today reports that the Obama Administration has demanded that Israel apologize to Turkey for last Summer’s raid on the Mavi Marmara, a Turkish-flagged ship leading a “Freedom Flotilla” of “peace activists,” which attempted to break the blockade on the Terrortory of Hamastan (a.k.a. Gaza).

On Tuesday I posted a video of Andrew Klavan debunking the “War Is Not The Answer” bumper sticker, and I thought to myself, funny how I haven’t seen one of those in Ithaca.
So driving to campus Wednesday, what do I see?
What was the first thing that popped into your mind when you read the post title?
The Super-Committee, right? When talks break down we’re going ”to make a series of dangerous unilateral concessions to try to convince” the Democrats “to come back to the conference table.”
Well, not right, but the...
This is really strange.
The first time I heard the term “Firebagger” (a play on you know what) was when Joan Walsh (of Salon.com) and Jane Hamsher (of Firedoglake, hence the “Firebagger” term) had the race card played on them because of their criticisms of Obama. I even did a Saturday Night...
As Wisconsin congressman Paul Ryan comes to a final decision about running for president, several top national conservatives are encouraging him to join the race. Ryan, who has been seriously but quietly considering a...

Obama has a jobs plan. He will tell us when he is ready. Until then, just chill.
It’s early in the day, but this Tweet by Mark Knoller of CBS News already is the winner of the Obama Jobs Plan Tweet of the Day, both because it reflects that no one is buying...

That two different readers would photograph and send me photos of the same vehicle over seven months apart? Different angles and lighting conditions.
Take a look at the vehicle in this post from January 3, 2011, sent by reader Kathryn, and this photo sent to me yesterday by reader Alex, who writes:
Love your website. Bumper stickers are from a parking lot in Toledo Ohio. BTW Toledo is leaning Kasich which should bode well for next year. I believe Northwest Ohio will be a battle ground and deciding factor for SB 5 in November, it will be very contentious here. Boots on the ground if you have any interest.
