Posted by  ▪  September 13, 2011

It seems the rest of the Generation Y crew has weighed in on this, so I figured I’d put in my two cents. My experience is more like Michael’s than Kathleen’s.  Islamist terrorism was a real issue in the world

I don’t know any other “real world”

Posted by  ▪  September 12, 2011

None of my friends or relatives were directly affected by the attacks on September 11, 2001. I was just starting the fourth grade in North Carolina and, while I knew my parents were clearly worried about something, I didn’t really

Jindal for Perry

Posted by  ▪  September 12, 2011

This strikes me as more significant than Pawlenty for Romney, because it represents the future of the Republican Party coming out for Perry, whereas Pawlenty in many ways represented the past.  Via CNN: Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal is backing Rick

Liberals wake up to the Obama threat to social security as we know it

Posted by  ▪  September 12, 2011

I’ve been spitting into the wind on this issue since days before the 2008 election. Rather than strengthening social security as a pay-in retirement protection program, Obama consistently has sought to destroy social security as we know it by treating

Pawlenty endorses Romney

Posted by  ▪  September 12, 2011

In a post at NRO, praising Romney without bashing other Republican candidates: But he’s not only a family man, he is a man of principle. He believes in the bedrock conservative ideals of limited government and free enterprise. He will stand

Keep commemorating 9/11 and your mission will be accomplished

Posted by  ▪  September 12, 2011

You could work hard and be happy. I’m certainly not against that. But if you really want to accomplish the goal of this bumper sticker, just keep commemorating 9/11. That annoys Paul Krugman and his many friends in the left-blogosphere more than

I’m glad Krugman gave voice to it on this day

Posted by  ▪  September 11, 2011

Paul Krugman has a shameful column today, shameful even by Krugman standards. Is it just me, or are the 9/11 commemorations oddly subdued? Actually, I don’t think it’s me, and it’s not really that odd. What happened after 9/11 —
