Jerry Brown’s Blog

Posted by Mark on April 30, 2005

Yes, that Jerry Brown. I’ve always been impressed with his intelligence. Not necessarilyhis ideas, but he certainly is one of the most intelligent thinkers on the left. This post on being a mayor is very deep.

Take a look, even leave a comment for him.

hat tip to Gun Toting Liberal for this one. Thanks GT.

Brave New World

Posted by Mark on April 30, 2005

Like most new technology, this holds the promise of both terror and hope. With this one, I sorta lean toward the terror side….

Good Luck, Mark

Posted by Mark on April 30, 2005

In the coming weeks, there will be some wonderful changes to Liberty Just in Case. Mark will explain most of the technical and logistical information. With additional time and dedication, we should see Liberty Just in Case listed next to Instapundit, Dailykos, Volokh, Hewitt and others as a leader in the swarming world of blogs, as Hugh Hewitt would put it. No – Mark and I didn’t have a fight and I’ll continue to comment as Patricia does. But time, technology and other commitments limit my ability to do some of the great work here that Mark will be able to do. I’ve enjoyed this dialogue and wish the best for my good friend here. Keep reading and watching!

A short explaination…

Posted by zaphriel on April 30, 2005

There continues to be some confusion, both on my part, and on the part of some readers of this site.
First, I’ll explain my mistake, I was not aware when I created this blog, that the phrase Neo-Con had any bad connotations. I had only heard it a couple of times, and I probably should have looked into it a little more. I did not know it was supposed to be offensive, I simply used my etymology skills and translated the phrase to mean “New Conservative”, which is what I am. I am not a fascist or Stalinistic person who believes in controlling the people. Anyone who has read my blog for more than a day has plainly seen that. I believe in the will of the people, and the greater good, as I think we all do. But there are people out there that like to judge me by the title of my blog, which I have already explained is sort of a misnomer.

Second, if you have a small mind, or a closed mind, please disregard this blog, it will have no meaning to you, and I truly do not wish to offend you. This blog is a collection of my thoughts, and my feelings. It is the story of my life, how I became a moderate conservative, and how as I grow older, I become more conservative (not because I am loosing touch with the world, but because I am gaining it). It seems that the more I do and the more I travel, the more I believe that conservatism, forethought, self-controll and self discipline are the right (and correct) paths.

So come back and read (during this next week about my trip to the communist socialist Wonderful republic state of California and the surprising rise of conservatism I observed while I was there.

Have fun with life; don’t take it so seriously, we only have one, and it should be fun.
Z.

The Branch Davidians of the Senate

Posted by Mark on April 30, 2005

This is the quote of the week, the month, and maybe the year:

For Democrats, judicial philosophy is a cultural Armageddon. Harry Reid and Ted Kennedy have turned the Senate into a Branch Davidian compound. No one in the liberal cult is allowed to leave, including the hostage nominees–unless they recant their conservatism. How many Senate Democrats plan to be in this bunker when Bill Frist’s ATF squad detonates the “nuclear option”?

I’ve not laughed so hard at a paragraph in a long time, and wish I had written it! Henninger is exactly right. And his analogy needs no further comment.
