OOPS, BUSH SAID IT AGAIN: "LET'S SHOP."

. In a brief speech followed by a questions from the press today, Wednesday, December 20, George Bush said "The war on terror is the calling of a new generation. It is the calling of our generation." He wants to increase the numbers of troops in the armed forces, though was vague whether he wants m...

TIMBERLAKE: SHAMELESS SEXPLOITATION AT CBS

. I don't have a remote for my TV, and didn't turn it off immediately when the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show came on recently. I could only stomach a couple minutes, but those minutes were very revealing. (Yeah, that's a pun if you want it to be.) Oh, there was the occasional "model of color," or ...

The New Plantation

- MadPotter . . Are you calling me a racist? I am saying it is a form of racial enslavement in which bureaucrats, many of them white, keep blacks in a "plantation" of welfare dependency, stripping them of dignity and initiative. Without the means or motivation for self-rescue, they waited for that ...

A Preventative for California Fires

- Every year, it's the same old thing: fires in California burning million dollar houses. Winter rains follow, and mudslides bring other homes down. There's nothing new about this, or the idiocy of Californians to build in such dangerous places. After the disasters, insurance and government disaste...

If they didn't, they dragged their feet, protecting a dangerous pederast. But even that term is somewhat tenuous, for pedera...
