Kim Jong-Il’s (Film) Madness


I just watched this documentary about the most insane country in the world, North Korea. It’s made by Vice, a mostly libertarian organization with its own magazine and Internet television channel.
Not only does Vice show Westerners just how unbelievably surreal and downright crazy North Korea is, but the same goes for its “Dear Leader” Kim [...]

It Is OK to Burn Our Flag But Not To Honor It.


Let me get this straight.  According to the Supreme Court, burning the American flag is protected speech under the First Amendment.  Yet in order to protect the sensibilities of Mexican-American students celebrating the Mexican holiday of Cinco de Mayo, a California Bay area school decided that high school students would not be permitted to wear  t-shirts emblazoned with [...]

Journalists: your moral and intellectual superiors


It’s one thing for my aged, cataract’d mother-in-law to mistake Vice President Joe Biden for Gorbachev yesterday.
But here’s a UK broadcast demi-journalist, illustrating once again why “normal” people hate Big Media:
Sky New presenter Kay Burley was forced to make an on-air apology after mistaking a Roman Catholic symbol on American vice president Joe Biden’s forehead [...]

Peggy Noonan: The Obama Contradiction – WSJ.com


When you watch a president give a State of the Union Address on television, you’re always watching three people: the president at the podium, and the vice president and House speaker on the rise behind him.

Climategate distracts at Copenhagen – - POLITICO.com


COPENHAGEN — “Climategate” has muddied the good green message that was supposed to come out of the United Nations climate change talks here, forcing leaders to spend time justifying the science behind global warming when they want to focus on ending it. Former Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin stirred the pot Wednesday with a […]

Dear ‘60 Minutes/Vanity Fair Poll’


I’m enjoying your bemused/disgusted reaction to your own poll, in which Rush Limbaugh was voted the “Most Influential Conservative Voice In America:”
In a “Rush” to judgment, Mr. Limbaugh scored the most with 26 percent of the vote. His competitor, Mr. Beck edged out the last two Republican vice presidential candidates by a nose. It goes [...]
