Former Navy Secretary John Lehman (who was SECNAV when I joined) says he has no idea where John Kerry got a Silver Star citation with Lehman’s signature, but Lehman didn’t sign it. The bogus citation is on Kerry’s own web site. Nod to Drudge
I have never studied linguistics, and the fact that Noam Chomsky made it his career before he set out to destroy Western Civilization, pretty much guarantees that I never will study it. But I think I have a sense of language and its effect on people. I pay attention to the evolution of words’ meanings. I like the way words affect the human mind and emotions. I like metaphor and simile and hyperbole–not to be
A herd of “scientists” recently gathered in Sweden to announce a new geological era, Anthropocene, which is man’s final destruction of the rest of the planet. These assembled idiots, embarrassments to whatever colleges granted them degrees, gave as an example of “catastophic” changes caused by man, sand churned up by SUVs and ATVs. Yes, dust churned up in the Sahara. Of course, these mice of science lack any actual numbers. Were they to study their
I just took a quick trip through some lefty apparel and gift web sites. Wow. These people are bitter. Stammering. They have these t-shirts with, three or four different themes on them. They’re all college co-ed hysterical stuff: “You know, Bush is going to get us all killed because that he can be like king and stuff,” on the front, and “If you’re one of those military guys, you’re doing the work of evil .
Jim Lacey, in National Review Online, makes some excellent points about the same thing I’ve wondered for some time: where are all the terrorists? After we invaded Afghanistan, we were told that tens of thousands of well-trained fanatics were scattered around the globe, increasing their danger and allowing them to recruit more members. Well, three years later, where are they? Why haven’t they struck? Mr. Lacey’s article is well worth reading as explores some possible
The IOC, Greece, and NATO spent three years putting up defenses to keep terrorists away from the Olympic games. Now, the games are plagued with terrible attendance. So I’m wondering if maybe the people who normally go to Olympics are terrorists who couldn’t get into Greece for the 2004 games, therefore all the people disguised as empty seats.
After years of preaching to the rest of us about protecting the environment, Dave Matthews dumps a couple hundred gallons of human waste on pleasure boaters in the Chicago River. Global warming is a theory, Dave, but dumping raw sewage into public water systems is proven to sicken people, fish, and water fowl. I’m glad you’re concerned about things you can’t control. Now control your bowels, and we’ll all be better off.

And don’t even think about lecturing me about veterans. I’m one, too, though not from Vietnam era. Peter is, and his letter to Kerry is an important read. It’s bad enough that we couldn’t mourn our dead then. Now we see the same man that stood over the open graves of our brothers and pissed on their bodies is back. This time he’s dug up those bodies and is standing on them to give himself
Because Max Cleland was disabled in war, are we not allowed to criticize him? Just because he lost two legs, an arm, and his sense of decency in Vietnam, are we not allowed to point out that he is a scum sucking, backstabbing son of a bitch? He takes a job from President Bush, then libels him in a disgusting display. Thanks to Rich Lowry at National Review.
