    Most of our snow, along with the neighbors from San Diego, has melted away. They didn't actually melt. It was more like they ran screaming back to warmth and Palm trees. Us hardier and poorer types look forward to the snow. We have to. It's all around us. We have had warm winds blowing in from Canada the last couple of days. We call these "Chinook" winds. The Canadians call it "Blowing all the tumbleweeds South". I like our name better. The Canadians have a lot of strange names for things. They call a hat a "Took". They call beating...

    "If you ask Stalin and the Red Army to help you defeat the Nazis, you will still have to face the Red Army one day – not as your ally – but as your enemy" --Randall Terry.Dear Pro-life Friend: I bring two critical issues to your attention: the election of Scott Brown, and an upcoming "Virtual March" [see comment below, or click on video image]. I begin with Scott Brown. I - like many other political activists – am enjoying the moment of “Ted Kennedy’s seat” going to a Republican. The problem is that Scott Brown supports Roe vs. Wade....
  • Glenn Beck Destroys Scott Brown: “This One Could End With A Dead Intern”

    You won’t see TV Glenn Beck touch the things that Radio Glenn Beck sometimes says, as he edges toward Howard Stern levels of comedy and tone. Today he absolutely obliterated Scott Brown over the ‘my daughters are available’ comment, going so far as to suggest Brown could be a secret pervert. Brown got over-excited and particularly creepy when he declared his daughters “available” during an improvised portion of his victory speech tonight. It was awkward – and it wasn’t immediately cleaned up. “Bad enough,” said Beck after he played the initial comment. “Hey my two daughters on the meat market!”...
  • Parallel Universes Exist - Study

    09/24/2007 4:10:41 PM PDT · by anymouse · 150 replies · 339+ views
    Parallel universes really do exist, according to a mathematical discovery by Oxford scientists described by one expert as "one of the most important developments in the history of science". The parallel universe theory, first proposed in 1950 by the US physicist Hugh Everett, helps explain mysteries of quantum mechanics that have baffled scientists for decades, it is claimed. In Everett's "many worlds" universe, every time a new physical possibility is explored, the universe splits. Given a number of possible alternative outcomes, each one is played out - in its own universe. A motorist who has a near miss, for instance,...
  • Maggie Gyllenhaal's "Courage" to Hate America (Don Feder On More Hollyweird America-Bashing Alert)

    04/29/2005 1:42:24 AM PDT · by goldstategop · 8 replies · 2,035+ views ^ | 04/29/05 | Don Feder
    Actress Maggie Gyllenhaal has an angelic face, an odd name – and not much else. (Her most memorable role to date was playing a masochist in the movie, "The Secretary.") But Gyllenhaal knows how to get the attention of the Hollywood establishment: just bash America. Tell the world how conscience compels you to trash your country. Make vague allegations about the awful things America has done and how we brought terrorism on ourselves. All the while, congratulate yourself for your honesty and nobility in taking such a courageous stand. The actress, who appears in "The Great New Wonderful Thing" (about...

    The Ownership Society By DAVID BROOKS ot long ago, a man who runs a construction company came to the White House to meet with a senior Bush administration official. He talked economic policy, then was asked how his business was going. He said things were going well. Orders were up. He'd revamped his I.T. system, and he'd re-engineered his production process so he'd been able to reduce his work force to 7,200 from 9,800. You can imagine the reaction as he dribbled out this final bit of good news. For here in a nutshell is the administration's problem. The...
