Jihad harmless….

leave a comment »

Or so says a new online  journalism course  on Islam.  It’s true,  of course,  that jihad is not a leading cause of death,  but it is beyond misleading to pretend,  as progressives do,  that jihad is nothing to worry about.

So ethics wasn’t the favorite subject of His Oneness?   Gee,  who’d have guessed that…

Germany’s EU bailout…

leave a comment »

Germans are probably  as pissed off about having to bail out the EU as  most Americans have been about the bailouts here.

Of course they are!

Why is anyone,  other than the non-believing researcher,  surprised to discover that religious Americans are nicer people  and better citizens?

$200K per job?

So our Treasury Secretary thinks that  $200K to  produce a job would  be a bargain?   Well,  Timothy Geithner would,  him being the man whose advice cost Japan one Lost Decade,  now going on a second.

Does Geithner have the faintest notion how arrogant and stupid he sounds?   Does the Obama Administration even begin to grasp how stupid its minions sound?

Dead Sea scrolls go online…

Only 5 of them are  going online now,  but hopefully more will follow soon.   What an opportunity to read something 2,000 years old which has been available only to researchers for many years!

I don’t think so…

 In a proposed rule  from Secretary Kathleen Sebelius and the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS),  the federal government is demanding insurance companies submit detailed health care information about their patients.

Notice that they want to apply this rule now,  before the Supreme Court finally decides whether ObamaCare is even constitutional?   Gee,  can anyone guess why the Obama Administration would want to do that?
