    The TSA’s Freudian Craigslist Slip Either someone just attempted the subtlest of jabs at our nation's force of uncomfortably invasive rent-a-cops or the recruiters at the Transportation Security Administration need to invest in a better thesaurus. A job posting on the Ann Arbor, Michigan Craigslist invites would-be screeners to "[b]e part of a imperious security team protecting airports and skies as you proudly establish your future." Imperious, indeed. The definition of imperious is "domineering in a haughty manner; dictatorial; overbearing." The definition from Google is even better, describing it as "assuming authority without justification." If it was a joke...

    IMPERIOUS HILLARY(THE REPORTS OF HER DEATH ARE GREATLY UNDERSTATED)       by Mia T, 12.05.05 (viewing movie requires Flash Player 7, available HERE) FOREWORD The context is Iraq and The War on Terror, but the underlying issue is whether our democracy will survive.

In particular, do we have the will to identify and eliminate the enemy in our midst? Answerable to no one, heir apparent in her own mind, self-serving in the extreme, hillary clinton incarnates...

    HILLARY DUD -- NOT DUFF -- PORTENDS JEANINE WIN by Mia T, 8.10.05 As the unquestioned leader in the race for the Democratic presidential nomination, and as the holder of a 34 percent advantage in her Senate re-election campaign, she will almost inevitably deploy the strategy of "sitting on a lead." There is probably no more dangerous stratagem in American politics. -- Tony Blankley-'Pirrotechnic' campaign against Hillary ASIDE: I can think of one -- sitting on the elephants in the Hildabeast's living room. What Bush 41 knew in 1992 What every congressman and senator knew in 1998 What everyone...
  • United Nations: US Stingy; UN Corrupt (Right in the Chops, this one!)

    I only have access to a few English language television stations while I am visiting Israel: BBC News and CNN International. Every quarter hour they recap the top stories. Today’s big story (after the non-stop images of a tidal wave taking out resorts frequented by Europeans and few Americans) is the comment of U.N. Undersecretary-General for Humanitarian Affairs Jan Egeland who said that western nations, particularly the United States, were being stingy with their aid packages offered for victims of the disaster. Without putting into context the fact that the United States provides more funding to the UN than any...
