Quote of the day

From David Harsanyi: But once we start rationing health care, externalities will only become more of an issue. If we collectively pay for health insurance, then what is to stop the majority of us from dictating to the minority what it can eat or drink? What would stop Republicans — after they roar back to […]

A festival of Moonbattery

I still feel like crap tonight, so I’m taking the easy out.  The difference with tonight’s link dump is that they are all from the web site Moonbattery.  (Do check them out, especially the last one.) 10 reasons to vote for Democrats A yard sign for when you have anti-gun neighbors A post that confirms […]

This is not a post about the future of the Auto Industry

I was going to do one, but I got sick.  Given my cynical treatment of the whole swine flu “epidemic”, it would, of course, be only fitting if I had somehow managed to contract said illness.  However, it appears to be something else.  Given an outside chance that it is strep throat, the Doctor gave […]

Quote of the Day

There is a nice post over at Q and O today about the Obama camp backpedaling on environmental regulations. In particular, there was a lot of fuss when the EPA classified polar bears as endangered due to their “disappearing habitat”.  (Politically correct, but demonstrably false, since their numbers are actually increasing.)  Environmentalists went all weak […]

Now we can move on to life-size human dummies and the advanced “Nixon” training from the movie “Where the […]

A triumph of the Human Will

Well, probably not.  A better title might be: From the “Because I can” file I just finished creating a bootable Ubuntu Linux USB drive.  Now I can take Ubuntu with me wherever I go.  More importantly, I can boot it up on any computer that allows booting from a USB drive.  How many computers do […]

Good on you, kid!

Rat Jr. was having some problems with her computer a while back.  A friend, who is supposed to know what he was doing, worked on it.  I was a bit annoyed to learn that he had removed a number of the programs I suggested Jr. install because he said they were crap or malware or […]
