The “Filthy” State of Values in Our Schools

Posted by  ▪  March 9, 2012
Earlier this week I had the pleasure of sitting in on a lecture given by Dr. Richard Baer, professor emeritus of environmental ethics and education, at an event hosted by the Cornell Republicans. Baer spoke at length about how, in their rush to ensure that they’re not promoting religious values, state-run and other “non-sectarian” schools…

The lesson of Carbonite

Posted by  ▪  March 9, 2012
Probably not a good idea to make decisions which could alter the course of company history on a Saturday night. Will Carbonite become the next Sleep Train, and attempt to regain access to Limbaugh’s audience? Via Instapundit, Rush said no to Sleep Train and probably would to Carbonite: OUCH:  Limbaugh Not So Hot…

Thought police at Univ. Rochester

Posted by  ▪  March 9, 2012
From University of Rochester (NY) Professor Stephen E. Landsburg, a blisteringly refreshing view of Sandra Fluke, Rush to Judgment (via Althouse h/t Instapundit): But while Ms. Fluke herself deserves the same basic respect we owe to any human being, her position — which is what’s at issue here — deserves none whatseover.   It deserves…

Eliminationists!

Posted by  ▪  March 9, 2012
They are concentrating on the coasts.  And they are for real, unlike their targets. From reader Philip: Here is another one Prof. This was in the local supermarket parking lot. San Diego is turning hard left and it might be time for me and the Mrs. to pack up and leave.

Twitchy?

Posted by  ▪  March 8, 2012
A new service from Michelle Malkin and team, which I noticed because they twitched (twitchy-ed / twitchied ?) me today. Scandal at The Washington Post: Fraud, Lobbying & Insider Trading. “If we don’t do better among Latinos, we are not going to be talking about how to get back Florida in the presidential…

The “civility” comedy gold practically writes itself

Posted by  ▪  March 8, 2012
There’s another “victim” of Rush Limbaugh, according to Adam Clark Estes at The Atlantic Wire, Rush Limbaugh’s Latest Verbal Victim Feels Derided, Dismissed: Less than a week after calling Sandra Fluke a “slut” on the air, Rush Limbaugh ran his mouth again on Tuesday, calling investigative journalist Tracie McMillan a “babe”, an…

When the wind blows too much

Posted by  ▪  March 8, 2012
I’m all in favor of wind energy.  If it works, do it.  But the notion that windmills will be anything more than a small aspect of electricity production is blowing smoke. I previously highlighted the problem in Britain, where wind turbine owners are paid not to produce electricity, Our Future? Wind Farms…

Carbonite shoots its business model in the foot

Posted by  ▪  March 8, 2012
The decline in the price of Carbonite stock since it announced it was dropping its longstanding advertising on the Rush Limbaugh show is not the real story of the damage done to Carbonite. The price of Carbonite stock has been dropping since October for reasons unrelated to this controversy, although it did fall off a…

You’ll never walk alone

Posted by  ▪  March 8, 2012
From reader and frequent photographer Scott, who sent this photo with the subject line “It seems I’m not alone”: I regret that I’ve been remiss in getting images out to you, especially since Raleigh seems the perfect battleground state again in 2012. I’ll try to do better as we inch toward November. My wife…

Wisconsin, Wisconsin, it’s a …

place where judges act strangely, Judge draws flak for signing Walker recall petition and Judge Flanagan must step aside in voter ID case: After signing a petition to force a recall of Gov. Scott Walker, the liberal judge had the audacity to issue a temporary injunction against the state’s voter ID law. He signed…

Manning Released Tweet of the Day

Posted by  ▪  March 7, 2012
Peyton Manning was released by the Colts today. Upon seeing the headline “Manning Released,” cheers must have erupted in Salons around the world. Just one problem, as Jim Geraghty points out:

In SEC filing, Carbonite lists Ed Schultz, Rachel Maddow and Randi Rhodes as “trusted spokespersons”

Posted by  ▪  March 7, 2012
Carbonite dropped its high-profile sponsorship of Rush Limbaugh because of a single incident last week in which Rush used certain words in describing Sandra Fluke, for which Rush apologized in writing on Saturday and on the air on Monday. Yet Carbonite retains sponsorship of others who have made personal attacks and insults a…

Rush: Boycott failing

Posted by  ▪  March 7, 2012
I’ll post the audio when available, but Rush Limbaugh just stated that the advertiser boycott of his show is vastly overstated and based on inflated numbers. (audio added, via Common Cents) As I have pointed out in response to concerned commenters, many of those listed by Media Matters and Think Progress as having…

Super Tuesday the day after

Posted by  ▪  March 7, 2012
Because of a number of distractions, I couldn’t devote much time to yesterday’s primaries yesterday, but here’s my net assessment, followed by some links: Mitt Romney is the luckiest politician in recent memory.  He barely eked out a victory in Ohio and thereby dominates the headlines, while losing almost every other key…
