    We've all seen 'em. You know the ones. The folks who walk into the local big-box garden center looking to fulfill their dreams of growing 4 pound tomatoes or blue ribbon-worthy pumpkins. Whatever their motivation - from a yearning for simplicity, a desire to eat more organically, or frugality - they've now decided to put in a garden. And could there be anything more inviting to a salesperson than the sight of the new gardener staring at the mountains of plants and supplies? Whether they grew up on a farm or could rival Billy Crystal for the lead role in...

    Michelle Antoinette, the queen of deified fiber, cares about you. After all, the them she's talking about is you. Too slack-jawed to feed yourselves properly, much less your kids, the First Lady is sacrificing herself by doing battle with Big Chow on our behalf. Unfortunately, Americans having freedom, will probably not eat from the list of State sponsored foods until the food you love is made too expensive to buy. Look what we're making them do! Let them eat taxes.

    . . . . . Last night I sent out an email to all on my list about the rising price of food in our supermarkets.  It included a post by Director Blue. This morning, as I was hearing Glenn Beck -- in a lead in to a commercial spot for a food storage company -- give out some facts and figures about how much food prices have risen, I was reading the responses to my email.  (I've  included them at the end of this post). Friends, I went shopping for groceries last Friday -- green peppers were $1.24 each...
  • Gay CPAC attendee GOProud belittles Pawlenty over DADT stance

    Chris Barron, chairman of the board at GOProud, sent over a statement laying into Pawlenty calls for defunding the repeal of DADT. GOProud is a conservative gay group that's under fire from anti-gay social conservatives because of their sponsorship of CPAC, the conservative conference being held in Washington, DC. Both GOProud and Tim Pawlenty will be at CPAC this weekend. I understand that Pawlenty is trying hard to get people to pay attention to his campaign. Its certainly a challenge for someone with such little stature in the conservative movement to compete with high profile conservative leaders like Sarah Palin,...

    The First Lady’s office confirms that the White House chefs made one batch of beer using about a pound of honey from the First Lady’s honey hive, on the South Lawn of the White House. The chefs used the traditional methods to brew the beer, and the First Lady’s office confirms that the Obamas paid for the equipment. The batch was made so that the nearly 200 Super Bowl guests – from members of Congress to celebrities like J-Lo -- could sample the new beer.

    The only chance of establishing order in Russia is by using military force. Russia of today is far too weak to bring about such a development of society by its own means. Like a certain Russian farmer put it in a TV documentary: "- Let's invite the Vikings again." What would "inviting the Vikings" actually mean to Russians? Simply put; Connecting with the 21st century. This would benefit Russia as well as Western Europe. I can easily see why Russians don't trust us Western Europeans. But Russians also ought to understand Swedes are very different from the likes of the...

    Like said, we Westerners don't particurlarly need Russia, China and Iran. Nice, moderate, Muslims we feel sorry for. Sometimes in life though, re-arrangements of personal strategy in life is called for. The devolopment of Humanity is complicated stuff. On all accounts, don't ask the sons of RAF veterans who've dropped bombs right through living rooms in Dresden and other parts of Germany for mercy. No need for more words.

Granted, they are nice to look at, other than that, they really must subscribe to ANYTHING is better than dating a Muslim man or they would still be in Muslim countries where they were born living the Muslim Dream, NO?

    “Dr. Martin Luther King, who really was in some ways the father of our nation’s environmental justice movement, may have put it best when he declared, and this is a phrase that we all know, that ‘injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere,”—AG Eric Holder In strict classic Liberal revisionist history, AG Eric Holder names Dr. MLK Jr. as the father of America’s environmental justice movement.

    Mark Levin has a point here: [AUDIO AT SITE] You know I'm a little concerned, I see all these Republican operatives on tv and radio, they're very giddy. Republican columnists, Republican websites, they're all excited. Think they have Obama on the run. Think the Democrats are imploding. All giddy. Well count me out. I'm worried. They have nothing to be giddy about. I'm worried, very worried, and let me tell you why. You've got Obama being attacked for not being radical enough...and he's a radical! And so the big media and Obama's staff are positioning him as a centrist or...

    Capitol Confidential ^ | 12/6/2010 | Jarrett Skorup
    In the waning days of the lame-duck Congress, a bipartisan fight is brewing over federal handouts to encourage production of corn ethanol, with competing letters urging the continuation or end of these subsidies. ... Milton Friedman once said that nothing is as permanent as a temporary government program. But if our newly elected Congress is serious about cutting spending and removing unnecessary government programs and subsidies, one can hardly think of a better place to start than corn ethanol subsidies.

    Last week, researchers at the University of Colorado published a psych experiment that seems almost too good to be true. They showed that two 15-minute writing exercises, administered to an intro physics class early in the semester, could substantially boost the scores of female students. Even more curious: the exercises had nothing to do with physics. Instead, students were asked to write about things that mattered to them, like creativity or relationships with family and friends. How could a few paragraphs on personal values translate into enduring better mastery of pulleys and frictionless planes? When it comes to math and...

    Christine O'Donnell tweeted about Delaware Channel 28 forgetting two times to air her 24 minute mega ad. She claimed she was told the station "forgot." Channel 28 executive producer Tim Qualls claims they didn't receive the tape in time to air the ad. Tim Qualls also said he was a Republican who planned to vote for O'Donnell until the ad controversy. He said he is a Republican and had planned to vote for O'Donnell, but the tape situation changed his mind. "She's lost my vote," Qualls said. Qualls does his own show on Channel 28 called 'The Tim Qualls Show.'...
