Four Days in Denver

Posted by Mark on April 20, 2008

Political prophecy?  This week may decide. Either way, this from a writer of the West Wing is a great read.

The People’s Republic of Illinois in the Rearview Mirror

Posted by Mark on April 4, 2008

Today marks my last day as a resident of Illinois. The land of Lincoln has been good to me and mine for 20 years or more, but it’s time to go.

Corruption in politics leads to multiple highs and lows…

High taxes, high crime, high unemployment.

Low morale, low wages, and low trust in public officials.

Think on that, as Democrats consider nominating a man steeped in the political culture of what was once the home of Honest Abe.

Is Ferraro Right?

Posted by Mark on March 17, 2008

 Geraldine Ferraro committed a gaffe last week, and has paid the price for it.

Gaffe. Hmmmm.

Michael Kinsley has a better definition.  “A gaffe is when a politician tells the truth.”

Telling the truth always costs you when you work for the Clintons.

Condi! Condi! Condi!

Posted by Mark on March 10, 2008

This would guarantee my vote for McCain in November. Despite Hertzberg’s snarky way of presenting it, choosing Condi as VP would be the best way to cement the base, and give Conservatives a positive reason to vote for the ticket.

A Short Course in Brain Surgery

Posted by Mark on March 7, 2008

Every thing you need to know about “single payor” health insurance is in this film. Is this really what you want? It’s what you’ll get if you vote for a Democrat this year.

Now This Picture is Just Weird…

Posted by Mark on March 5, 2008

I like President Bush. And I like John McCain more than Osama Obama or the Clinton Gang. But this picture is just bizarre…

All we need is for McCain to be looking up adoringly into George W’s eyes…

And one more thing. The President doesn’t look too happy about this hug moment either.

Cross Action News. What Drudge Would Be if Drudge Was an Evangelical

Posted by Mark on March 4, 2008

Having recovered from a major interview on Moody Broadcasting this morning, Cross Action News is up and running.  This is a must-read site, covering news from a conservative and Christian point of view.  Stuff here I haven’t seen, including this from FrontPage:

Well, NASA says recent satellite images show that the allegedly endangered polar ice cap – which will melt completely one of these summers and kill off all the polar bears if we don’t slash our greedy carbon footprints and revert to the lifestyles of medieval peasants – has recovered to near normal coverage levels.

That’s what Josefino Comiso, a senior research scientist with the Cryospheric Sciences Branch of NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center in Maryland, told Canada’s CBC News – the Canadian government’s version of NPR/PBS – on Feb. 12.

As far as Google’s search engine knows, Comiso’s comforting report has appeared nowhere but in Canada.

There’s even better news for polar ice-pack lovers from ice expert Gilles Langis, who says Arctic ice is now even thicker than usual in spots. A senior ice forecaster with the Canadian Ice Service in Ottawa, he’s another scientist you shouldn’t expect to see talking to Anderson Cooper on the next episode of CNN’s “Galaxy in Peril.”

Meanwhile, in other news too climatically incorrect for U.S. mainstream media to touch, California meteorologist Anthony Watts says January 2008 was the planet’s second-coldest January in 15 years.

Even more shocking, the average temperature of Earth dropped significantly from January 2007 to January 2008. As Watts explains on his Web site wattsupwiththat.wordpress.com, he determined the lower figure by crunching data from four major public and private global tracking sources.

Very much worth visiting, and linking to, and maybe even using as one of your home links, as I have done. Good job, Jason and company!

The First Coming of Obama

Posted by Mark on February 11, 2008

A fascinating and frightening look inside the “cult of Obama” arising within the Liberal mainstream. Very frightening indeed.

More Bad News From Iraq…

Posted by Mark on February 11, 2008

for Liberals, that is.   But, for Nancy Pelosi, news is only perception:

 House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said twice Sunday that Iraq “is a failure,” adding that President Bush’s troop surge has “not produced the desired effect.”

That’s true. For Dems, Iraq’s success is failure for them. The troop surge has most assuredly not produced the effect they desired, an Iraq more divided and deadly than ever.  As Iraq moves toward stability, the issue of Iraq for Democrats this fall truly is “lost.”

Dragged Kicking and Screaming…

Posted by Mark on February 7, 2008

…I endorse John McCain for President.

(This endorsement, and $1.85 will get you a cup of coffee at Dunkin’ Donuts.)

I don’t really have a choice, now do I?

In the end, I always ask myself:

Who would Al-Qaeda pull the lever for in November?

Of the three possibilities, the one least likely to get Al-Qaeda’s vote is John McCain.

I don’t speak for Craig or Matt. They have to post their own opinions.

But now that the battle for the White House is truly joined, you’ll hear no more disparaging remarks from me about Mr. McCain. Is he the best choice? Nope. But, he’s the only choice now.
