Turn off FOX!

leave a comment »

Liberal activists now wants  FOX NEWS to not be on in public at businesses,  lest our little  brains be polluted with foul lies.   They claim that this isn’t censorship, which from a legal standpoint it isn’t — only the government censors.

What they want is censorship by intimidation.   I haven’t checked to see who’s behind the new group,  but Media Matters and George Soros have their sticky little tentacles into everything else,  so I wouldn’t be surprised if this is yet another.   We do know that MoveOn.org  is promoting the scheme,  which suggests I’m correct.

Don Surber’s right — MSM won’t run  this because it shows His Oneness as less than graceful,  and as less adept at working out a simple logistical problems than a man of his reputed brilliance should be.

However,  Drudge posted it!

What sleeveless wants…

leave a comment »

If you want to see a textbook exposition on how to dismantle a liberal,  watch  the highlights from Newsbusters of Laura Ingraham turning Dr.  Marc Lamont Hill into a pile of progressive piddle while Larry King basically looks on helplessly.

Laura has produced what is bound to be my favorite quote of the month when mentioning Our Lady of Perpetual Dissatisfaction:  “It’s not all what sleeveless wants,  sleeveless gets.”

Restoring America…

leave a comment »

I didn’t attend Glenn Beck’s rally on Saturday,  but I know some of the people who did.   Whatever you think of Beck,  you have to applaud the funds which will go to the Special Operations  Warrior Foundation.   A conservative blogger who warned about unsafe areas of D.C.  created a firestorm.    Having lived in D.C. for a couple of years myself,   I think it was a public service.    No matter whose head count/guesstimate/estimate you use,  media bias clearly exists.   Plenty of it was  on display before the event.

Al Sharpton’s march,  titled as a  counter-rally,  didn’t have the numbers,  and most shots show a sour man bellowing at the crowd of  activists and union goons,   not the  smiling faces at the Beck event hearing messages of faith,  hope,  and charity.

PowerLine was  in attendance at the Mall.  Don’t bother reading Frank Rich’s piece;   just read Timothy Carney’s  critique of it.   Then read what  one black attendee  at the Mall had to say, which is the exact opposite of the hysterical reaction of liberals  such as Mary Mitchell  and Bob Herbert.   Let’s hope none of  them read this in the Christian science Monitor.

His Oneness,  of course,  paid  no attention to the rally,  being so far above the fray.   Hear from  some who  attended.   I think Beck  just proved that  nobody owns August 26th.

Sun storms…

leave a comment »

Astronomers are  on full alert to the sun resuming an active period after a decade of relative quiet.   NASA, well,  not so much.   But the solar storm will show what an EMF attack is capable of with respect to the highly technological Western world and its dependence on things electric.   And no,  we aren’t prepared for that either.

Did you know that sun spots  can compress or extend a day?
