Jeter playing really big ball…

leave a comment »

Not even the greatest retiring baseball players can  expect this.   I’m not the least surprised 43 showed up,  either as a volunteer or fulfilling a request by the team’s management,  but I wonder who at the White House is trying to figure out how to one-up the event.  On second thought, maybe not,  considering that His Oneness throws  like a sissy  instead of tossing one  straight over  the plate.

Holes at the end of the earth…

leave a comment »

This desolate place is aptly called the end of the world,  and now it  has a hole  leading who knows where.   Scientists are currently baffled  as to its cause.   Now there are  two more holes  in this remote area of Siberia.   These are fascinating phenomena,  all the more so because scientists  don’t agree  on their cause.

UPDATE:  I wondered when the green hysterics would get in on the act,  and now they have,  proposing a theory that global warming is causing the  release of methane  from the earth and warning that catastrophe looms!   Of course,  it’s just a theory,  one which was once trotted out to explain the killer lakes in Africa,  such as Lakes Nyos,  Monoun,  and Kivu,  but they were found to be subject to  limnic eruptions,  which are massive ejections of carbon dioxide.   Methane is  also emitted  by lakes,  which has been known for years.

Great week for Dems…

leave a comment »

Well,  maybe not,  since most of the headlines from last week  were about  disasters,  man-caused and otherwise,  and plagiarists and liars.

His Oneness has sunk to a new low in  this poll,  which also shows that if the last election were held now,  Romney would win.

#ThanksObama…

leave a comment »

L. A. commuters  whose travels  were ruined by the Obama fund-raising motorcades took to social media to express their opinions of the travel disruptions.   No word on what the  woman in labor prevented from reaching the hospital thought about the street being closed for His Oneness.

Help the Kurds, help us all…

leave a comment »

The Obama Administration  is rejecting  Kurdish pleas  for assistance  in fighting against ISIS.   This is stupid beyond belief.   The Kurds not only know how to fight,  they will fight.   After all,  they have been occupied,  run over and mistreated by conquerors for thousands of years.   The Kurdish region is now the haven of Christians fleeing the rest of Iraq.   Despite the best efforts of His Oneness and his gormless group,  the Kurds actually like Americans,  as many of them have crossed paths with U.S. Army Green Berets,  and even fought beside them.   Our history is complicated to being with, but His Oneness and the sheer stupidity of the  State Department  are dismissing the last chance to blunt ISIS in Iraq.

One would almost think His Oneness doesn’t want to win.   Oh, wait —  this is the man who refused to win two wars.   Why would he risk backing a group which actually wants to win?

Trigger the vote…

leave a comment »

This new voter  registration campaign by the NRA,  with true tough guy Chuck Norris as its honorary chairman,  will set liberals’ hair on fire.   The sad part is that the campaign is correct  —  the Second Amendment is the protector of all the others,  and the guarantor of the citizens’ ability to withstand their government.    People who want to abolish the Second Amendment do so with a purpose in mind  — to remove that protection and turn citizens into subjects or slaves.   I dare you to find me a single proponent of gun control who has not either done something with that purpose,  or who is not seeking to do so.

Supersize yacht as a job engine…

leave a comment »

I happen to agree with Dennis Jones about his custom yacht being as much of a jobs engine as it is a personal indulgence,  but I am stunned that the Gray Lady would actually  print this piece.   It’s not as if it remembers what happened when Congress  jacked up  the tax on luxury yachts a while ago,  and it’s not as if liberals cared about the havoc it wreaked until they got caught.
