Road Trip, Part 2

Posted by  ▪  September 23, 2011
More from reader “Joe’s” recent road trip. Also snapped this pic of the back of a car on the Blue Ridge Parkway on my way home. I got a kick out of the image of the dog howling “obama”. The one sticker asks, “What are you grateful for?” ****I’m grateful we now have alternative…

Florida Early Onset Debate Fatigue Coverage (Tweet of Night added)

Posted by  ▪  September 22, 2011
I already have debate fatigue. But will soldier on. Not “live blogging” but insightful and inciteful analysis at appropriate points. Comments are welcome and encouraged. Final Assessment:  Rick Perry didn’t help himself; just don’t understand why he’s not more comfortable in this setting, not quick on his feet, doesn’t have good answers to…

Elizabeth Warren: Everything you have belongs to us

Posted by  ▪  September 22, 2011
This is almost enough to cause me to rescind my Bye Bye Brown pronouncement, because Elizabeth Warren ascending to the Senate to replace Scott Brown would make Ted Kennedy seem like the good ol’ days. The progressives are in a lather about this video by Warren in which she proclaims an almost…

“If this was 2013, Obama might be in a different groove”

Posted by  ▪  September 22, 2011
There is one worthwhile clause in an otherwise worthless article at The Atlantic by Steve Clemons, Obama Tells Palestinians to Stay in the Back of the Bus. Clemons lays out the fiction that the Palestinian strategic move to take land without peace is something Gandhi-like: Obama’s position on this is dangerous in another sense as well.  Obama –…

They’ll pay tribute to anything once…

Posted by  ▪  September 22, 2011
Today “House leaders will pay tribute to Rep. Charles Rangel (D-N.Y.), less than a year after the House formally censured the former chairman of the Ways and Means Committee.  Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) will speak at a ceremony to unveil Rangel’s official portrait as chairman of the storied committee, which the longtime…

Thankfully, no corn dogs were served

Check out the Cornell Chronicle article about my Tea Party talk, Law professor’s talk on the Tea Party triggers heated debate. Could they possibly have picked a worse photo?  Thankfully, they didn’t serve corn dogs at the event.

Texas Executes Murderer of James Byrd – After NAACP Smeared Bush On Hate Crimes Law

Posted by  ▪  September 22, 2011
While media eyes were focused on the disputed Troy Davis execution in Georgia, Texas was executing a brutal and completely unrepentant murderer. Last night, Texas executed white supremacist Lawrence Russell Brewer for the murder of James Byrd Jr.  One accomplice, John William King, remains on death row, and another, Shawn Allen Berry,…

Conservatives coalescing around … Mitt?

Posted by  ▪  September 22, 2011
Via HotAir, Mitt Romney has scored two significant conservative endorsements recently, Jeff Flake and Darrel Issa.  While that may not constitute a coalescing around Romney, it does help insulate him from RINO charges.  Whatever he once was, is he now the conservative who can win? What’s up with this? I think it may be dissatisfaction,…

Palestinians Show Their True Goal With UN Logo That Wipes Israel Off The Map

Posted by  ▪  September 22, 2011
The Weekly Standard reports:   Note the logo, which depicts “Palestine” as all of Israel. The root of the conflict is not that Israel currently controls the West Bank.  The root of the conflict is that the Palestinians and their allies are still unwilling to accept that Israel exists at all.  There can be…

Road Trip, Part 1

Posted by  ▪  September 22, 2011
Name withheld for a reason which will become obvious. From reader “Joe”: I just returned from a road trip from SD to VA for my mother’s funeral. As I drove down the WV Turnpike I snapped this pic of a billboard. I’d seen it before on a previous trip so I had my SLR…

Tea Party Kippot!

Posted by  ▪  September 21, 2011
Found the following at a local judaica shop called “The Mitzvah Store”:     This was the same shop I bought this at in ’08 (I kinda wore it out): It did not appear that they were selling Obama kippot at that time.  Maybe that’s not a mitzvah.
 

The Palestinian bubble bursts again

Posted by  ▪  September 21, 2011
Why the Palestinians thought that a diplomatic confrontation with the U.S. was the way to go is inexplicable.  Once again, they overplayed their hand. Did they really buy into Obama’s rhetoric from 2009 in Cairo, or earlier this year about the Arab Spring?  In part, a big maybe, but I don’t think…

Open

Not able to get to posting this afternoon, so tell me what’s on your minds. (Maybe, what do you think about bloggers from other blogs trolling the comment section here?  Just a hypo, no one particular in mind.)
 

Dissuasion

Posted by  ▪  September 21, 2011
Obama gave a good speech today at the U.N. on the Israel-Palestinian conflict: President Barack Obama told a meeting  of the United Nations General Assembly Wednesday that Mideast peace “will  not come through statements and resolutions” by the world body, arguing against  a proposed resolution calling for U.N. recognition of P…

Libertarianism: Lost in Translation

Posted by  ▪  September 21, 2011
I get Presseurope, a roundup of translated opinion pieces from the EU, sent to my email. For the most part, the newsletter is incredibly informative. For instance, I had no idea that someone could honestly think that the Greeks deserved pity… or that disbanding the German nuclear program was a great idea. But I don’t necessarily…

“I voted for him, I’m a Democrat, but Obama who?”

That’s a line from this web ad released by the Republican Jewish Coalition, which is capitalizing on the momentum from the NY-09 election:
 

More Turkish threats

Posted by  ▪  September 21, 2011
It’s all about the natural gas and Erdogan’s ego: Turkish Prime Minister Tayyip Erdogan described offshore gas drilling by estranged ally Israel and Cyprus as “madness” on Wednesday, raising the stakes in a confrontation over potentially huge deposits in the eastern Mediterranean…. “The Greek Cypriot administration and Israel are engaging in oil  exploration…
