Bimbo in the Bunker

Monday, May 31, 2004 8:44 Comments Off

We are the “screamers.” Justin Stoddard makes a great quote comparison between WND’s bimbo columnist and H.L. Mencken. Note in her column she quotes, uhh, Lee Greenwood. Read her cliched Americanisms. It is a beautiful country, from north to south, Atlantic to Pacific, desert to prairie to mountain to beaches. It has something for everyone [...]

“This is a vile culture and if you think for a second that it’s willing to just live in the sands of God’s armpit you’ve got another thing coming.” –Gene Simmons of KISS.

Federal Data Mining

Saturday, May 29, 2004 14:14 Comments Off

There are those days when I think I’d love to go to work for the GAO, because I’d get to audit stuff like this. Data-mining technology can sift through massive amounts of information to uncover hidden patterns and subtle relationships to make predictions. The technology “has led to concerns about the government’s use of data [...]
