The New Black Helicopter Crowd

Cute: A New Hampshire neighbor of mine did this ["Find a strip of land, live off the grid, stockpile ammunition, raise emus for meat, and keep your eyes peeled"] for a while. Then he figured out the ATF guys don’t need to besiege his stockade. What with GPS and so forth, Obama can take him […]

So Much Martyrdom, So Little Time

Power Line – Why Don’t Christians Care? In a number of places around the world, it is open season on Christians. We read of Christians burned out of their homes and slaughtered in Pakistan. Most recently, at least 500 Christians were murdered in Nigeria. The attackers in all cases are Muslims, inspired by the warlike […]

Moral Degeneracy and *Your* MSM!

I missed this.

Epic Discovery

Funniest thing. Turns out, travelling alone with an 8-month-old is kinda tiring. Also taking 8-month-old to visit her great grandpa in hospital for weirdo stomach problems. Anyway. Over ‘n out.

Another story I can’t stand so I’ll just quote Instapundit: GOVERNMENT HEALTHCARE: Neglected by ‘lazy’ nurses, man, 22, dying of thirst rang the police to beg for water. “A man of 22 died in agony of dehydration after three days in a leading teaching hospital.

Argument Overrun By the Small Print

The other day I was scrolling along through my Google Reader and came across this from Charles Krauthammer in the Fox All Stars panel. And was mildly annoyed.
