Thursday, October 9th, 2008

Fox is outraged, outraged they tell us, at Newsweek!  The magazine put Sarah Palin's face on the cover of the current issue, and the commentators at Fox are incensed because it is totally unfair to Palin.  What's the complaint?  THE PHOTO IS NOT RETOUCHED!  It shows Sarah Palin's actual face ...

General Query, Apropos of Not Much

Monday, July 28th, 2008

Does anyone on BIO live in the Raleigh, NC area?  My sweetie is taking me on vacation there next month, and it's fun to meet online friends face to face, the way we had a chance to get together with Ken Grandlund on a trip to San Diego a while ...

Another Republican Class Act

Thursday, July 10th, 2008

The NJ state Republican web site was running a banner slogan saying "Obama Loves America like OJ Loved Nicole" - boy, that's the kind of political discourse that elevates the process.  Who, them racist?  No "oh my God, it's a scary black man!" theme there.  Subtle as a flying mallet, ...

Vice-President Dick Cheney's attorneys told a federal judge Thursday that the Cheney is legally akin to the president because of his unique government role and has absolute immunity from any lawsuit. But U.S. District Judge Bates interjected that only the President has the "unique" immunities. And by 'president' one must assume ...

Here's one for the pro-gun crowd. In Illinois, apparently there is no age limit for obtaining a state Firearm Owner's ID Card. According to Illinois state law, anyone who wants to own or purchase a firearm needs to get an FOID card. And even though you can't legally buy a gun ...
