About that Antarctic sea ice…

It’s growing. Yet another inconvenient truth from the real world that the computer models beloved of the Cult of Anthropogenic Global Warming can’t account for.

I thought tea-partiers were all a bunch of White racists who hate a Black president? I guess these people didn’t get the memo.



Party like it’s 1934

A 75-year old political cartoon that’s appropriate for today.

I am an official (maybe) terrorist!

And I can prove it. I have my very own certificate. Take the test to see if your should be on Homeland Security’s list, too.

The shot heard round the world

April 19, 2009

I’m a bit red-faced Blushing that it took a British blog to remind me that today is the anniversary of the Battles of Lexington and Concord in 1775, generally regarded as the opening skirmish of the American Revolution. Tory Historian points out that both sides claimed victory, but perhaps I can be forgiven a bit of national pride for arguing that we won on points: the advance column withdrew under fire and was considering surrender when it was rescued by Percy’s brigade. General Gage then found himself besieged in Boston. Flag

Regardless of any "Monday-morning generalship," it is fitting that the anniversary comes just a few days after the Tax Day Tea Parties, a genuine grassroots movement that organized itself to protest Washington’s mad plans to borrow and spend like drunken sailors on pay day — and, inevitably, to make us pay for it all with ruinous taxation.

In 2009, just as in 1775, popular sentiment erupted to send distant masters a message. Thankfully, this time, shots weren’t needed, but the point was made just the same: Don’t tread on us.
