Laugh of the Day: Snort Edition

Wednesday, January 18th, 2006

I was reading The Dilbert Blog this afternoon and I ended up laughing so hard I snorted.
I’ve also been called out on the fact that I have not mocked liberals with the same frequency as I have mocked people who happen to be conservative. This is largely because the base requirement for being mocked for […]

What If?

Friday, December 16th, 2005

I sat at my desk today during lunch and as usual, I was browsing the web. Only today was slightly different from normal.
I feel the urge to sometimes check on what those on the left are saying. Today’s urge was inspired by the story of President Bush giving the go ahead on the use of […]

A message from the President of the United States of America

Tuesday, May 31st, 2005

-CyberSavant- has a funny spoof message from the President. Some of the highlights:
Before me, I have two lists. One list contains the names of countries which have stood by our side during the Iraq conflict. This list is short. The United Kingdom, Spain, Bulgaria, Australia, and Poland are some of the countries […]

The media and commenters get retarded

Wednesday, May 18th, 2005

Suzanne writing over at Jawa Report shared a transcript of a White House news conference in which some member of the MSM tried to get McClellan to say the government should limit the press’ free speech rights. I am completely for this in the case of several press outlets, but against in others. That is […]

You silly, silly man

Thursday, January 27th, 2005

Apparently I am silly. Well, my idea on homosexual marriage was according to HellenW. Here is what she said bit by bit with what I have to say back.
Your “separate but equal” ideas on Gay Marriage are silly–not simple, not practical, not Conservative, not thoughtful. Just to be constructive, I will volunteer myself.
Separate but equal? […]

Wednesday, January 26th, 2005

As expected, Dr. Rice has been confirmed.
WASHINGTON, Jan. 26 - Condoleezza Rice was easily confirmed as secretary of state today, overcoming charges from some Democrats that she had been a disingenuous architect of a failed administration policy in Iraq.

What will Mapes do now?

Tuesday, January 11th, 2005

Now that Mapes doesn’t have a job with CBS, what will she do? I doubt any other news agency will take her given her bias to the left so that doesn’t leave many options. She could become a political commentator but that will only expose her true bias that she has worked so hard […]

Tuesday, January 11th, 2005

Congress meets today to certify the electoral votes for the 2004 election. Normally this isn’t a very news worthy story as the report is buried within the newspapers, but this year could be different.

Sheriff fires 27 on first day

Tuesday, January 4th, 2005

And to think I used to live in nearby Cobb county.
Power goes to a person’s head, sometimes more quickly than others. The new sheriff of Clayton County, Georgia seems to be one of the former. Victor Hill celebrated his first day in office by firing 27 people, stationing snipers around the office and driving the […]

TIME Person of the Year 2004: George W. Bush
For sticking to his guns (literally and figuratively), for reshaping the rules of politics to fit his ten-gallon-hat leadership style and for persuading a majority of voters that he deserved to be in the White House for another four years, George W. Bush is TIME’s 2004 Person […]

Sunday, December 19th, 2004

Via Power Line:
Cal Thomas, in the Washington Times, tells us that the Democrats have announced plans to hold “hearings” during which they will examine the policies and conduct of the Bush administration. I thought we just finished such hearings in the form of an election campaign.
North Dakota Senator Byron Dorgan promises that the hearings will […]
