    Americans Want U.S. Troops To Stay In Iraq And Believe Country Safer

    And readers, you have to read Freethinker’s–a DailyKos moonbat–comment on this new finding, and my response. Knut Wicksell over at Kos commented as well.

  2. Quitters Caucus

    The 35 Members of Congress who are quitters when it comes to Iraq

  3. Two Dismal Strategies for Iraq

    Today’s Daily Kos posts include some lightweight politico-military theory on how to exit gracefully from Iraq. From the outset the careful reader will note that there are problems in the logic to follow, however.

  4. The Akaka Bill battle rages on

    Almost a month ago I blogged about a bill that is before Congress that would set up a government for Hawaiians only. It’s being sponsored by Democratic Senator Daniel Akaka from Hawail.

    It’s back in the news again in today’s Honolulu Advertiser. …

  5. What Do The FBI, a Harley Davidson Womens Club, Soldiers Angels and Minimus Have in Common?

    What Do The FBI, a Harley Davidson Womens Club, Soldiers Angels and Minimus Have in Common? Soldiers…and a desire to personally support them. Minimus is a relatively new e-commerce company (their one year anniversayr is July 6th) based in California …

  6. Schnepper-Malagoli Charitable Tax Grab

    While doing research for my last FSA article, I came upon an article written by Jeff Schnepper that was listing ideas for cutting your 2004 taxes. I skimmed the article, most of which is common knowledge, until I hit upon something called the Schnepper…

  7. McCreary and Van Orden

    What to say about the logical result of an illogical body of jurisprudence? The reasoning in these opinions, taken together, is so tortured as to make the pages scream.
    Factually, it?s easy. McCreary County v. ACLU involves the posting of the Ten…

  8. The Real Entitlement Generation

    What an absolute hoot that some Baby Boomer bosses are calling the current crop of young kids the Entitlement Generation (bolds are mine):

    The Entitlement Generation: Are Young Workers Spoiled or Simply Demanding a New Kind of Work Life?


  9. I’m tired of the word “Insurgent”

    Read almost any TOM story out of Iraq and you will see the word “Insurgent” used over and over. A dictionary definintion would certainly allow that usage:
    in·sur·gent (?n-sûr’j?nt)
    1. Rising in revolt against establish…

  10. SCOTUS Decision On Ten Commandments

    In true activist fashion, the Supreme Court today released 2 decisions on public displays of The 10 Commandments. Failing to define a clear line in the sand, the US Supreme Court today left more questions then answers.

    Happy Face Sought in Connection with Walton Death

    Investigators are seeking the Happy Face in connection with the death of WalMart heir John Walton in a plane crash yesterday. The smiling yellow disembodied head is being described by police only as a “person of interest” at this point in the investi…

    Army Times: OIF MilBloggers Must Register

    These common-sense rules simply give Soldiers written guidance on what would not be appropriate information for a blogger to post in a public forum. These rules are not a departure from normal restrictions on Soldier’s personal communications, rather…

  13. Gannett Editor Promises to Burn Flag If Burning Amendment Passes

    The top editor at a newspaper owned by Gannett, which publishes USA Today, promised in a Sunday column to burn an American flag if the Senate passes an anti-flag burning amendment. Linda Grist Cunningham, Executive Editor of the Rockford Register Star in Illinois, pledged: “If the U.S. Senate follows its silly siblings in the House of Representatives and votes for a ban on burning the American flag, I’m going to burn one. It never occurred to me to burn a flag — except in some flag-retiring ceremony — but just the idea that Congress has nothing better to do than spend time on this nutty issue makes we want to burn one.” She also displayed her disgust with critics of Senator Dick Durbin, complaining that people “with an ax to grind” took “a couple of lines out of context.”
