FOX more balanced…

leave a comment »

Of course FOX News is  more balanced  than MSNBC   —   and practically every other news outfit.   People can tune in to hear both sides when they tire of hearing the same side presented in multiple voices.

Democrats’ prayer…

leave a comment »

Regardless of how you feel about abortion,  seeing  Democrats praying  for increased access to abortion should turn your stomach.   With all the trouble in the world,  that’s what they pray for?   They have become a profoundly unserious party.

County Commissioners in Oakland County, Michigan have made the point in an even uglier way here.   Liberals are not nice people,   They laugh AT people,  not WITH them.   They are incapable of laughing at themselves,  and any attempt at self-deprecating humor falls flat because it is so patently insincere.

Marcel dies…

Dr.  Jesse Marcel Jr.,  who claimed he handled debris from the 1947 crash of an alien spacecraft near Roswell, New Mexico,  has died  at age 76.   How fitting that he was reading a book about UFOs.

Drunken elk gang…

This isn’t  the first account I’ve read of animals other than man getting drunk on fermented fruit,  but it’s by far the most amusing account.   I didn’t realize it happened so often in Sweden.   Is there some built-in proclivity to overdoing alcohol built into our genes?

Washington Post attacked…

leave a comment »

It probably wasn’t pleasant for WaP employees to  be protested  against,  but the protesters were Egyptian-Americans,  and there were women and children peacefully objecting to the WaPo’s failure to accurately cover events in Egypt,  especially in properly blaming the Muslim Brotherhood for attacks on Christian churches.   Why did the WaPo shut down its lobby and allow no one in or out when the protest,  which moved on to the White House,  were indeed peaceful as the paper reported?   Because they are liberal wusses lead by ideological leftie wimps.

Because a bit of levity is required after the Democratic convention that was the MLK 50th anniversary,  enjoy this.

That is,  thankfully,  the temporary name of a new chemical element which the Russians and Americans discovered a decade ago,  but which the Swedes have now verified.
