Reflections Upon Indicting a Ham Sandwich

Posted by Mark on September 28, 2005

Tom Delay was indicted today by Ronnie Earle. The same Ronnie Earl that indicted Kay Bailey Hutchinson (R-TX) a decade ago. That on fell apart too. Democrats can crow for awhile, but this is another “victory” that will end up kicking them in the face. Don’t say I didn’t tell you so.

It’s About Time…

Reason finally prevails, and the loonie America hating “Blame America First” crowd looses.

Freedom Museum Axed From WTC Site Plan


NEW YORK — Gov. George Pataki (search) dropped a proposed freedom museum from the World Trade Center (search) redevelopment plan Wednesday, saying the project had aroused “too much opposition, too much controversy.”

The decision followed months of acrimony over the International Freedom Center (search), with furious Sept. 11 families and politicians saying that the museum would overshadow and take space from a separate memorial devoted to the 2,749 dead and would dishonor them by fostering debate about the attacks and other world events. – source

So at least someone has been listening and the sight will once again decome what it always should have been, a monument honoring those who died that terrible day.

Thank God.

If you’ve not seen this, take a look. Anybody still believe like my friend Joseph, that there is no Bush hatred in the media? Agenda driven media at its best..er..worst.

Hold Everything! Truth From NASA!

Posted by Mark on September 28, 2005

The space shuttle and International Space Station — nearly the whole of the U.S. manned space program for the past three decades — were mistakes, NASA chief Michael Griffin said Tuesday.

In a meeting with USA TODAY’s editorial board, Griffin said NASA lost its way in the 1970s, when the agency ended the Apollo moon missions in favor of developing the shuttle and space station, which can only orbit Earth.

“It is now commonly accepted that was not the right path,” Griffin said. “We are now trying to change the path while doing as little damage as we can.”

Be still my heart. Could NASA be getting back on track, after over 30 years in a very expensive wilderness? It’s possible. Hard to imagine how long Michael Griffin will last as a bureaucrat if he keeps telling the truth, though.

I am Pro-Victory

Are you?

From the North American Patriot Site

Jay Tea, at Wizbang has come up with a fabulous idea…

[..] with the argument over the war on terror, ‘our” side has a bit of a dilemma. The other side has staked out “anti-war” as their rallying cray, leaving us to be called “pro-war.” That’s not entirely accurate, at least in my case, and rather damning. So I reject that.

So, what should “we” call ourselves? That’s a tough one. [..]

And then it hit me. Let the other side be “anti-war.” If they choose not to recognize that the war started a long time ago, and we’ve only recently started fighting back, that’s their stupidity. We have more important things to worry about than their whining and kvetching.

We’re pro-VICTORY.

I couldn’t agree more. In this spirit, I have spent a little time fashioning a small symbol that can be placed on the website of any like-minded bloggers, who would like their support for the war defined on their own terms.

I have been looking for something like this for quite a while, Thanks to Jay, I have now found it.

I am proud to be Pro-Victory.

Are We Winning the War on Terror?

Timmer over at RightingAmerica has the must read post of the day. He offers a great analysis of the question, and a great read on this article from the Washington Times.

Treasury Set to Unveil Redesigned $10 Bill

WASHINGTON — Get ready for some more color in your
wallet.

The $10 bill is set to become the latest currency denomination
to be jazzed up with a splash of colors to complement the greenback’s
traditional green.

It’s all part of the government’s effort to stay
ahead of counterfeiters and the ever-more sophisticated devices at their
disposal to make fake money.

Treasury Secretary John Snow and officials
from the Bureau of Engraving and Printing — the agency that prints all U.S.
currency — were to be on hand Wednesday for the unveiling of the newly
redesigned $10 note during a ceremony on Ellis Island in New York harbor.

The $10 bill becomes the third denomination to get a color makeover
following the $20 bill in 2003 and the $50 bill last year.

About time we caught up with the rest of the world. I wonder however how long it will take the first counterfitters to premier their new fakes…hmmm.
