Are we tired of this yet?

Friday, March 31st, 2006

The banning of the Easter Bunny has been the topic in the blogsphere for a few days now, so it’s not news to most people that an Easter display was removed from City Hall in St. Paul, MN. Jay Leno just had a great comment regarding this:

“How come people want to take the […]

State Representative Bob Lynn

Sunday, March 19th, 2006

With an upcoming mayoral election, I’ve only recently started learning about local politicians and their views in my relatively new city of Anchorage. This morning I read in the Anchorage Daily News that State Representative Bob Lynn of Anchorage has had a Blogspot blog since 2002.
His most recent post entitled Unofficial Things […]

South Dakota House OKs Bill to Ban Nearly All Abortions

Friday, February 24th, 2006

Yippie!
Governor Mike Rounds has a spine:
“I’ve indicated I’m pro-life and I do believe abortion is wrong, and that we should do everything we can to save lives,” Rounds said. “If this bill accomplishes that, then I am inclined to sign the bill into law.”
The bill makes exceptions for pregnancies that threathen the life of […]

Never Forget

Michelle Malkin remembers 9/11.

Oy! That’s not kosher!

Friday, May 20th, 2005

Joshua Claybourn from In The Agora reports on Alaskan Pork.
Apparently Senator Ted Stevens, who I believe has been a senator since Seward purchased Alaska from Russia, brought home $1.5 million to remodel a bus stop. A bus stop.
Perhaps having an airport named after you eventually goes to your […]

Real life Rambo

Bo Gritz. It’s a name that was vaguely familiar to me before I read this article.
Former Green Beret Commander Bo Gritz is trying to conduct a citizen’s arrest of the Terri Schindler Schiavo’s husband and the judge presiding in the case before the handicapped Florida woman is scheduled to have her feeding tube removed […]

Condie in 2008?

Saturday, March 12th, 2005

I hope not.
In an interview with editors and reporters in the office of the editor in chief at The Washington Times, she said she would not want the government “forcing its views” on abortion.
If a government shouldn’t force its views in order to protect the most vulnerable among its people, when should it force its […]

Jada Pinkett Smith’s comments labeled “heteronormative”

Thursday, March 3rd, 2005

I shouldn’t even be blogging about this. I haven’t heard Jada Pinkett Smith’s comments and I’m too distracted to seriously investigate this, but the word “heteronormative” was irresistable. I have to say something about it before my head explodes.
Smith gave a speech to a crowd that included an alliance to support alternative sexual […]

Jim Sykes of Palmer has a great commentary in a letter to the editor of the Juneau Empire regarding the ugly building contest for Alaska’s new capitol.

Cold, calculating women

Monday, February 21st, 2005

Vox Day posts a response to his most recent article in which a homeschooling mom provides thought provoking commentary about modern women who have, “allowed themselves to be duped into adopting unnatural masculinity.” Great commentary, go read it!
Is the result of women suppressing their natural feminine tendencies to become cold and calculating? […]

Alaska’s Ugly Building Contest

Saturday, February 19th, 2005

Alaska has been struggling to come to a concensus about whether or not to move the capital to a more easily accessible place than Juneau. In Juneau’s latest effort to keep the capital, they have held the Capitol Building Design Contest. I’m confused because usually if you want to keep something, you don’t […]

Yes, you too can become a prostitute!

Sunday, January 30th, 2005

You know how if you lose your job and have to go on unemployment, part of the deal is that you have to take the first job offered to you for which you qualify?
Well since prostitution has been legalized in Germany, women on unemployment are being offered jobs in brothels and if they […]

Happy Voting Day, Iraq!

Sunday, January 30th, 2005

Mohammed and Omar of Iraq the Model describe their experience voting. Awesome.
Michelle Malkin has a roundup of posts and lack of posts on the Iraqi Election. She links this picture from her site, which was my favorite of the bunch and makes an excellent point by asking, “Will American feminists be celebrating these […]

The Quotable FoxNews spokesperson

In response to Ted Turner comparing FoxNews to Hitler:
“Ted is understandably bitter having lost his ratings, his network and now his mind — we wish him well.”

Mark Byron has a good post, a primer of sorts, on tolerance and antinomianism.

Where’s CAIR now?

Sunday, January 16th, 2005

Michelle Malkin and Joshua Claybourn report on the slaying of a family of four for what appears to be religious hate. It will be interesting to see how this is handled.
Oh ya…the family: Coptic Christians from Egypt living in New Jersey. The father an avid chatroom participant frequently debated religion - with […]

Fox, 24 and Stanley Cohen

Friday, January 14th, 2005

I was going to blog about CAIR’s meeting with Fox about 24’s unrealistic choice of Muslim terrorists for this season’s bad guys until I read this:
After his arrest, Royer sought legal counsel from Hamas lawyer Stanley Cohen, who said after 9-11 he would consider serving as a defense lawyer for Osama bin Laden if the […]
