  • The word "DINO" is rarely used by liberals!

    To entertain myself, I will drop in to some of the liberal web sites such as DU, Politico etc. I have observed viewpoints from extreme left to not so extreme left to almost left of center. But rarely, if ever, I have seen the word DINO thrown around. Actually there are more registered democrats than republicans in the country. And democrats are a more diverse conglomeration ranging from rich white liberals, blue collar, blacks, Hispanics, militant feminists, recent immigrants, yuppies, Muslims, welfare dependents, etc. Yet, it is rare for one democrat to turn on another. Whereas I see the word...
  • Do Democrats Now Have An Astroturf, Anti-Tea Party Mob(Occupy Wall Street)?

    From the onset, it appears that they do. Obama and fellow Dems have little to nothing to run on. Bad economy, no jobs, and Obama did not keep his promises to the Democratic base about GITMO, the Patriot Act, wiretapping laws, a public option being a necessity within the health care reform bill (or else Obama would not sign it) and so on. Obama and fellow Dems did not make Card Check and amnesty for illegals (along with the rest of the aforementioned) their first priorties, even though Obama ran on these promises. And so they must get the base...

    They told me in 2008 that if I voted for Sen. John McCain we would get the third Bush administration. They were right. I voted for McCain and now we have the third Bush administration under Barack Obama. Obama continued bailouts, stimulus payments, high deficits and presidential vacations. He convinced Congress to continue all the Bush tax cuts. Obama is carrying on Bush's efforts to weaken the Social Security system by reducing Social Security taxes in spite of the fact that many have had to delay retirement because the economic collapse damaged their private pension programs. If Obama were a...

  • Sheriff Clarke's rival finds it hard to get GOP support

    "Even though most people know Clarke's not really a Democrat, I can't get the GOP endorsement and I'm really a Republican," he said. Duckhorn has been a Milwaukee cop for 17 years, so I assumed he knew the backstory on Clarke. Clarke, a former Milwaukee cop, was appointed by Republican Gov. Scott McCallum in 2002. Since then, he's run for re-election as a Democrat, usually considered a pretty savvy move for an African-American politician in this county. There are plenty of local Democrats who view him as an impostor. But many voters don't seem to mind the fact that Clarke...

    On Friday, January 29th, 2010, Lech Walesa, former President of Poland, traveled to Chicago to endorse Illinois Republican gubernatorial candidate, Adam Andrzejewski. We were fortunate enough to have an opportunity to sit down with the President and Mr. Andrzejewski. Our video from that visit is below. Items that stand out: 1) Lech Walesa tells his American Audience that the United States no longer leads the world politically or morally 2) At least one of your Founding Bloggers asks President Walesa if he thinks America is slipping toward Socialism. His Answer? Yes! 3) Andrzejewski is running on a platform of forensically...
  • Herseth Sandlin (D South Dakota) To Oppose House Health Care Bill

    11/06/2009 11:25:57 AM PST · by DadOfFive · 49 replies · 3,027+ views
    Representative Stephanie Herseth Sandlin says she will oppose the health care reform bill expected to be considered this weekend in the House. The South Dakota Democrat says the plan falls short of her goals for health care reform and could threaten existing access to health care for many South Dakotans. Herseth Sandlin says she's also concerned it doesn't do enough to bring down the federal deficit and could affect future health care for seniors. The House could begin consideration this weekend of the 10-year, $1.2 trillion legislation that would extend health coverage to tens of millions of uninsured Americans and...
  • NEW DINOSAUR: Fossil Fingers Solve Bird Wing Mystery? [Dinosaur gives Creationists the finger]

    NatGeo ^ | Wednesday, June 17, 2009 | John Roach
    June 17, 2009—The fossil hand of a long-necked, ostrich-like dinosaur recently found in China may help solve the mystery of how bird wings evolved from dinosaur limbs, according to a new study. The ancient digits belonged to a 159-million-year-old theropod dinosaur dubbed Limusaurus inextricabilis. Theropods are two-legged dinos thought to have given rise to modern birds. Although it was a distant relative of Tyrannosaurus rex, the newfound dinosaur was a small herbivore, said study co-author James Clark, a biologist at George Washington University in Washington, D.C. The animal was about 5.6 feet (1.7 meters) long and had relatively short, clawless...

    From William Randolph Hearst's ginned up hysterical stories about marijuana to the "10-cent plague" comic book scare of the 1950s to The New York Times warning of "cocaine-crazed Negroes" raping white women across the Southern countryside, the media has always whipped up anxiety and increased readership via thinly sourced exposes of the next great threat to the American way of life. And since the British sociologist Stanley Cohen defined the moral panic phenomenon in the early 1970s as hysterical overreactions to imagined threats to social order, no publication has done a better (by which we mean worse) job of scaring...
  • The Ransom of Red Chief Arlen Specter

    Remember O. Henry’s tale, The Ransom Of Red Chief? A couple of con men kidnap a rich banker’s son. The boy turns out to be a hellion who makes the kidnappers’ lives a living hell. By the end of the story, rather than paying a ransom, the boy’s father demands money to take the rascal back. So beleagured are the kidnappers that they pay up. The O. Henry tale comes to mind in observing the way that Republican turncoat Arlen Specter is making his new-found Dem colleagues miserable. As recounted on this evening’s Hardball, in the course of just a...

    It has been said that director Howard Hawks made Rio Bravo (1959) as a reaction to two popular westerns which angered him - High Noon (1952) and 3:10 to Yuma (1957). His comment on the former was, "I didn't think a good sheriff was going to go running around town like a chicken with his head off asking for help, and finally his Quaker wife had to save him." Hawks also considered 3:10 to Yuma, which had outlaw Glenn Ford playing psychological games with lawman Van Heflin, "a lot of nonsense." So Rio Bravo was the director's take on heroism...

    This summer Price, 57, plans to continue on a journey to prove just that as he joins an expedition to Mount Ararat. His team believes that it is there, in Eastern Turkey, where Noah's Ark remains preserved underneath layers of rubble and ice. "There's a whole trail of history pointing to it [Mt. Ararat]," Price said in a recent interview. "But in our age, people tend to think it is more of a story like Jack and the Bean Stalk.' Our aim is to show that the Bible is good history." ......

    "Dino Killer" Asteroid Was Half the Size Predicted? Ker Than for National Geographic NewsApril 10, 2008 The meteorite that wiped out the dinosaurs might have been less than half the size of what previous models predicted. That's the finding of a new technique being developed to estimate the size of ancient impactors that left little or no remaining physical evidence of themselves after they collided with Earth. Scientists working on the technique used chemical signatures in seawater and ocean sediments to study the dino-killing impact that occurred at the end of the Cretaceous period, about 65 million years ago. They...

    Dino-Era Feathers Found Encased in Amber James Owen for National Geographic NewsMarch 11, 2008 Seven dino-era feathers found perfectly preserved in amber in western France highlight a crucial stage in feather evolution, scientists report. The hundred-million-year-old plumage has features of both feather-like fibers found with some two-legged dinosaurs known as theropods and of modern bird feathers, the researchers said. This means the fossils could fill a key gap in the puzzle of how dinosaurs gave rise to birds, according to a team led by Vincent Perrichot of the Museum für Naturkunde-Berlin in Germany. The find provides a clear example "of...

    Dino Rossi is a former Washington State Senator and Republican nominee for Governor of Washington in the 2004 election, one of the closest elections in state history. In 2004, Rossi resigned his Senate seat to run for governor. His resignation was due to state fundraising laws that do not allow fundraising while the legislature is in session. He faced no significant opposition in the Republican gubernatorial primary as all other GOP candidates dropped out shortly after he declared his candidacy. He won the primary with 85% of the vote. In the November 2 election, over 2.8 million votes were cast...
