Killing Babies

Margaret Sanger, call your office. This is not specifically an anti-abortion rant, this is about a morally repugnant “panel of ethicists” in the UK stating that there is no moral difference between abortion prior to birth and murdering babies after birth because they are “morally irrelevant”. I guess I should be thankful that they have…

“He” said I should be serious…

Although this pains me, I shall go against my nature. Yesterday, I read a post that disturbed me greatly. So much so, that I lost my temper….  Here it is: ” No, I don’t support our troops, why would I?  “It’s patriotic to support our troops!” I can understand if you feel like that, but allow…

Remember When?

Do you remember when those “evil religious zealots” said that changing the definition of marriage to appease the demands of homosexuals would place us on the slippery slope toward pedophilia and bestiality and you laughed? The “social conservatives” said these different groups would use the same arguments as the homosexuals to demand their “rights,” but…

Because “SHE” Said DO IT!

I was told I am too serious and have no sense of humor and needed to write something to prove otherwise.  I was also told not to be long-winded.  So, just to prove I have a “short” sense of humor: And now that I did as “SHE” commanded, I guess I belong in the lineup:…

Bulgarian Dog Spinning

Somehow, with the Republicans tripping over themselves on the way to losing an election that should be an easy win, I find myself feeling a little like the dogs in this report. Gotta hand it to the Bulgarians, no modern veterinarian medicine needed here… Exposed: The cruel dog-spinning ritual to ‘ward off rabies’ that is…

This Is Only A Test…

Coerced Into a Contract

This is a very interesting take on Obamacare and something that we have discussed here, the Law of Unintended Consequences. Via Ed Morrissey at Hot Air: I must admit that until I heard this argument from the Institute for Justice, I never considered the implications of ObamaCare requiring individuals to sign contracts for insurance coverage. …

Yes, Actually, We Have Gone Completely Insane

The Detroit News reports that the Santorum campaign robocalls Democrats for support in Michigan primary: That’s right. The former Pennsylvania senator’s campaign paid for a robocall asking Democrats to vote for him in Tuesday’s primary. Recent polls show chief rival and Michigan native Mitt Romney and Santorum virtually even heading into the primary. “We know…

The Wishcasting of Juan Williams

In what is for me a “Oh, my God! I can’t believe I’m reading this correctly” moment, I just read the most ridiculous defense of Obama’s economic accomplishments by none other than Juan Williams. I respect Mr. Williams and consider him to be a man of integrity and honor…but even men of honor and integrity…

Missing the Point

On February 11, Binyamin Appelbaum and Robert Gebeloff of the New York Times wrote an article, the thesis of which was this: “if you have ever taken one dime of federal money, you can never legitimately argue against shrinking government”. The title of the article says it all – Even Critics of Safety Net Increasingly…

Misinterpretations

So at another site I had a comment on my Faith post which went down “something” like this: V: Why didn’t you include Islam in your bar joke? Kells: Oh, the Muslim went to a different bar with something strapped to his chest and we’ve neither seen him nor the bar since. V: Ouch. I’m…

We Did It To Ourselves

On what must be officially “What The Hell Were We Thinking Day”,  Louis R. Lombardi over at Legal Insurrection shares my sentiments expressed in my last post and many of the others here at TRNL: With the backlash to the ever growing power of the federal government and its increased dominance in our lives, one…

A Tale of Two Editorials

There are two editorials in today’s Financial Times, one by the editorial staff of the paper and one by Lawrence Summers, former chief economic adviser to President Obama. Both are of similar subject matter as both notes the need for an overhaul of the tax system in the United States. These articles are written, the…

The PETA Principle

Remember the Peter Principle? The Peter Principle, formulated by Dr. Laurence J. Peter and Raymond Hull in their 1969 book The Peter Principle, states that “in a hierarchy every employee tends to rise to his level of incompetence”, meaning that employees tend to be promoted until they reach a position in which they cannot work competently.…
