Compliance versus Competency

Do you ever wonder why you see headlines like these? Safeway apologizes after 4-year-old is banned for life Cops are Summoned to an Elementary School After a Girl Kisses a Boy in Gym Class Is That 4-Year-Old Really a Sex Offender? The last one includes these tidbits: In December 2006, a 4-year-old boy in Waco, Tex.,…

Rule 5 – Pole Dancing

No, not that kind…you bunch of pervs. Pole vaulting. Olympic event. Track and field. Creates the tightest tushies this side of a pair of yoga pants. If I had room, I would replace my P90X with it. May I present one of the hottest female pole vaulters around – Allison Stokke. The athletic and delectable…

Daniel Craig is now my favorite James Bond…

…for this: Daniel Craig lashes out at ‘idiot’ Kardashians Not a fan of the Kardashians then, Daniel Craig? The James Bond actor hit out at the US reality TV family in an expletive-filled rant about celebrities who ‘sell’ their lives and then demand privacy. The actor gave his take on how to handle being in…

Strange But True

Back in April of this year, there was an email that was going around the web about how Obama was guaranteed to win in 2012. This was supposedly written by conservative economist Walter E. Williams and it detailed how Obama would win by forming a “Coalition of the Unwilling…to work.” I was tipped to it…

In the Wonderful Land of Oz

More and more, critical stories are being written about the headlong rush by governments around the world into “alternative energy” based on what is, in my opinion, the junk science of anthropogenic climate change. On the heels of another batch of leaked emails that continue to demonstrate that the only science behind climate change is…

Constitutional Conservatives

Sometimes you run across work that needs no amplification or explanation. You just wish that you had written it. This is one of those cases. Yuval Levin writes at NRO: This fall, liberals from the president on down have begun to grasp the scope of the political and intellectual disaster that the past three years…

Rule 5 ……from a female’s point of view

I’m very taken with women that have a great sense of humour. While I was searching for a Latin song, I came across this video. I dig this chick because I think she’s sexy and cheeky. In other words, she gets it. Ladies and Gents,  I present Miss Tori More singing Touch Me….. Well, since…

Happy Non-Socialist Thanksgiving!

As a companion to Black3’s Thanksgiving history lesson,  I will add to it with a post from Powerline quoting the great Paul A. Rahe. Dr. Rahe holds the Charles O. Lee and Louise K. Lee Chair in the Western Heritage at Hillsdale College. He is the author, most recently, of the companion studies Montesquieu and…

Tilting at Windmills – Part II

Apparently, my assessment of wind energy is shared by at least one more person in Scotland. Bill Jamieson shares my position, which I shared in Tilting at Windmills earlier this week. Adding to his analysis are the recent financial failures of alternative energy efforts in the US and the revelation of the massive degree of…

Rule 5 – Lucy Pinder

Lucy is a “glamour model” in the UK (which just means that she is topless a lot) and a spokesmodel for Lynx products. Well, Lucy is hot enough to get their new Internet ad campaign banned. A series of adverts for Lynx deodorant brand has been banned by the Advertising Standards Authority and must not…

Romney Using Racial Bias?

So says Tad Devine, Democratic strategist extrodinaire. From The Hill via Drudge: Democratic strategist Tad Devine, an adviser to the Al Gore and John Kerry presidential campaigns, accused Mitt Romney’s campaign of invoking the controversial Rev. Jeremiah Wright in a recent ad. Devine said Wednesday that he was “shocked” to see what he believed was…

Apparently the Russians are Racists, too…

I guess flipping Obama off qualifies if Congressman Joe Wilson’s accurate outburst does. From the Telegraph: Online footage of the incident, which occurred earlier this month during an afternoon news bulletin on the privately held REN TV channel, is being avidly viewed in both Russia and the United States. In the footage, Tatyana Limanova, an…

Roll Tide

Based on early reports, Alabama’s immigration law is producing results. The reports seem to indicate that unemployment is dropping, even in counties with double digit unemployment. Since it is unlikely that Alabama is having a one-state renaissance while the surrounding states are still mired in high unemployment, it would seem logical that the increases in…

The Thrill is Gone

There is no doubt that there will be Democrats who are disappointed with Obama but will hold their noses and vote for him – I can’t say much – it is a feeling I know well from voting for Dole and McCain on the Republican tickets of 1992 and 2008. What is interesting is that…
