Rape as a recruiting tool

Michael Ledeen relates the disgusting story of The Mother of the Believers.

And yet some people roll their eyes when I assert that what we are fighting is evil. If ignorance is bliss, then these people must be truly happy.


Paying taxes is for thee, not for me

February 3, 2009

Jonah Goldberg nails the hypocrisy of the Democratic Party.

When moralizing conservatives get caught, say, cheating on their wives or challenging stall mates to robust Greco-Roman wrestling in airport bathrooms, liberals justifiably howl at the hypocrisy of it all (even though conservative moralizing has no teeth, while the IRS has agents with guns). When liberals fail to pay taxes — the wellspring of a just society — it’s merely, to borrow an old phrase from Daschle, "sad and disappointing," but ultimately not that big a deal.


Maybe we should pray for global warming

Otherwise, the Earth would freeze!

Via Pax Parabellum, video of London paralyzed by snow.

Meanwhile, scientist James Lewis calls the Cult of Anthropogenic Global Warming the greatest fraud in history. Doesn’t he know Al Gore has said the science is settled?

Climatologist Roy Spencer has called the cult of global warming a "new paganism," and I begin to think he’s right. It’s not just an inconvenient truth, it’s a matter of dogma!

We’re staying right here

February 3, 2009

I’ve been thinking for a while about moving this blog to another service, mostly because I don’t want to pay even the small fee Typepad charges. I don’t like Blogspot, but WordPress was very attractive. At it’s "free" level, it has many of the features I wanted. I liked it so much I set up a blog and started playing with the configuration. Then I ran into a problem: no javascript widgets allowed.

Nuts. Sad

I like the sidebar widgets I’ve installed and don’t want to lose them. Oh, well.

Typepad, ya dodged a bullet there. Whew

Does any Democrat pay taxes??

February 3, 2009

Another one bites the dust.

I realize the President comes from a congenitally corrupt political environment in Chicago and that tax fraud is an honored tradition there, but can he at least try to find one person who isn’t a cheat?

Maybe he should borrow Diogenes’ lamp.

UPDATE: Hell freezes over in New York.

UPDATE II: Tom "Tax Cheater" Daschle withdraws. Can we impeach Tax-Cheat Geithner now?
