Nuke Oregon?

Tuesday, December 30, 2008 21:55 Comments Off

I’m anti-war, but …… Oregon, the land of granola-crunching, Birkenstock-wearing, filthy, Communist debris, is in the news again for its anti-humanism. Governor Ted Kulongoski wants to take “the next step” toward taxing people for each mile they drive. We are living in a sick, sick, sick world.

KopBusters!

Barry Cooper, a former Texas police officer with eight years of specialty in drug interdiction, first made waves when he released the film “Never Get Busted Again,” a how-to guide for evading police drug seizures. Austin, Texas-based Cooper’s latest project is not nearly so benign, and will likely generate for the former drug warrior an [...]

Voluntarily Unfree

Speed-limiting devices should be foisted upon our cars – oh, but only for those who voluntarily want them. Surely, people will be lining up for this glorious device. Imagine anyone wanting to put human beings at the mercy of some computer device controlling a very large steel bullet raging down the road. Thanks to Charles [...]

The TSA is a Terrorist Organization

I can’t think of anything better in a depression than killing off exports for the Pacific Northwest cherry industry. A new TSA ruling that goes into effect in February is still unknown, but what is certain is the costs it will foist upon one industry that relies on exports via passenger airline cargo. On another [...]

The Newspaper Old Guard Hates Bloggers (yes, again)

Monday, December 29, 2008 9:30 Comments Off

The good, old days: When my colleague at the Newark Star-Ledger John Farmer started off in journalism more than five decades ago, things were very different. After covering a political event, he’d hop on the campaign bus, pull out a typewriter, and start banging out copy. As the bus would pull into a town, he’d [...]

Shit Women Do

Monday, December 29, 2008 6:28 Comments Off

I usually don’t women-type, vacuous things, but I recently did a doosie. I kept having these damn fruit flies hanging in my face when I would cook or sit at the MacBook – because I keep the laptop in the front of the house near the kitchen. These things were hanging around for two weeks, [...]

Another Excuse to Play the Role of White Savior

Monday, December 29, 2008 4:49 Comments Off

Why do white people hate that they are white? Does this pathetic weenie think he is doing blacks any good by writing Guilty White Liberal Rant, Part One Million and Counting? Does he still not understand why political ideology is overwhelmingly broken out by race and ethnicity? Read his article on the “white male supremacy” [...]

Rap Music Has Scottish Roots

Monday, December 29, 2008 4:45 Comments Off

Professor Ferenc Szasz argued that so-called rap battles, where two or more performers trade elaborate insults, derive from the ancient Caledonian art of “flyting”. According to the theory, Scottish slave owners took the tradition with them to the United States, where it was adopted and developed by slaves, emerging many years later as rap. This [...]

He He Ha Ha Ho Ho

The Detroit Lions, who just finished their season at 0-16, have announced: …they’ll freeze ticket prices for next season. In addition, the team will reduce prices for a small portion — about 8 percent — of season-ticket holders for 2009. What a favor! It’s amazing to think that people are still charging pricey sports tickets [...]

Lew Rockwell vs. the Communists

Sunday, December 28, 2008 19:36 Comments Off

In the Christian Science Monitor, Eoin O’Carroll links Dan Neil’s crazed piece, “Nationalize GM,” in the LA Times – a story that Lew linked previously on the LRC blog. Then he links Nouriel Roubini’s plea for nationalization. Then he links some other yahoo Marxist. Then he links Michael Moore’s call for the triumph of government [...]
