Every blog listed on my blog roll is there because I genuinely like the contents of that blog. Time constraints and habit mean that I don’t visit those blogs as often as I should. Sometimes, though, I have a Sunday afternoon when I do get the chance. The following is a list of just some of the good things you can find if you visit the links on my blog roll. Not everything will interest you, but I urge you to scan through and take a peek at what does pique your interest:
Wuzzadem has an excellent post about the slippery slope that is today’s permissive parenting — and the political implications that go along with it.
Urgent Agenda has a nice reminder that Bush Derangement Syndrome is hardly universal. Indeed, I keep stumbling across news stories from abroad telling about foreign leaders who are getting remarkably nostalgic for the Cowboy Bush.
The Wide Awake Cafe has a post that is almost elegiac in its despair about Obama’s passive aggressive approach to Afghanistan, one that sees his refusal to make a decision as tantamount to a death degree for our troops.
If you’re thinking about the latest gadget, White Pebble has a useful decision-making flowchart.
Considering the Futurist’s solid track record, I have to admit to being very nervous when I read that there are two more major recessions headed our way.
The Hashmonean examines the gaping chasm that is opening between Israel and the Obama administration. We saw it coming. I wonder how many American Jewish voters will care.
Tigerhawk takes a long, eye-opening look at the Obama administration’s Nixonian secretiveness.
August, with the Tea Party fervor, was an exciting month. It’s hard, though, to keep up the same level of excitement, especially when (unlike the Left’s professional protesters) you have a real life. November, however, may prove to be a month every bit as important as August when it comes to calling Congress to account on the health care issue. Thought You’d Newer Ask has a good list of things you can do.
The BlackSphere pulls no punches: Democrats hate blacks. I’m not sure if the condescension liberals visit on blacks amounts to hatred, but there is no doubt that the demeaning way in which American blacks are treated leaves them open to every sort of victimization possible at government hands.
Freedom’s Cost notes, not only that the Republicans do have a health care plan, but that some in the media are waking up to its existence.
Soccer Dad caught the fact that Muslims boast that they provided the genesis for the misbegotten Goldstone report. That can’t be a good thing, can it? (And yes, I’m being naively sarcastic there.)
I’m not sure whether UN standards get lower, or just get weirder. Check this out and you decide.
OceanGuy looks at what’s at stake in the health care debate, and laments the passing of the liberal democrat.
Two posts at Seraphic Secret deserve your attention. The first has an important point about hate crimes in the context of the Los Angeles synagogue shooting. The second is just a great series of pictures of shoes I would never wear.
A rather frustrated Ymarsakar tries to get people to accept that facts are facts, regardless of the conclusions we ultimately draw from those facts.
PalmTree Pundit points out one of the major problems with American journalists today — unlike journalists of the past (or maybe just of 1940s Hollywood movies), today’s journalists lack any curiosity. They regurgitate press releases, with the biggest headlines given to those press releases that most accurately reflect the journalists’ own liberal world view.
And as a nice follow-up to PalmTree Pundit’s point, Overlawyered provides a perfect example of the media’s gross complacency.
“Aviation in itself is not inherently dangerous. But to an even greater degree than the sea, it is terribly unforgiving of any carelessness, incapacity or neglect.” Neptunus Lex, sadly, reminds us of the truth behind that quotation from Captain A. G. Lamplugh. It’s not always the battle that’s the danger.
Road to the Middle Class examines the necessary war being fought out in the public square over health care and America’s self-definition.
It didn’t make the front pages, but Marooned in Marin still caught it: a Corzine staffer got caught with drugs in a school zone. Whoops! The question is whether New Jersians care.
In my polite facebook battles with liberals who see salvation in ObamaCare, I often ask that they explain why the Democrats don’t fix the breaks in our current system, rather than breaking it entirely. None answer. Neo-Neocon explains why.
Much as the Left wants to paint ScuzzyFuzzy’s ouster as a sign that the rightest lunatics have taken over the asylum, Gay Patriot makes it clear that the facts on the ground contradict that simplistic, ugly argument.
Voters are often very frustrated that their candidate of choice, once in power, proves ineffective at carrying out his promises. Obama is a classic example, since he managed to lie to everyone. He told ordinary Americans he was middle of the road, and offends them by his Leftism; but his fan base knew he was hard left, and he now offends them by being something less than a Marxist. Pro Commerce may have a handle on part of the problem.
I take dogs very seriously. My children know I’m not kidding when I say that I like our dog best, because she never fights with me and always listens. (Well, sort of not kidding.) Anyway, Flopping Aces has another dog story and you can help.
My American Thinker article today was about America’s essence, which is freedom. I believe, strongly, that Barack Obama, by instinct and upbringing, is hostile to freedom. David Horowitz talks about the coming totalitarianism and the newspeak that casts this oppressive world view as “freedom.”
I’ve long railed against the arts and crafts approach to education, which sees the school turning everything into a demand that the children make a drawing. They don’t teach art. They don’t teach analytical thinking. They don’t care if drawing has a logical relationship to the subject matter being taught. They just want you to draw. As CDR Salamander pointed out, One Massachusetts school took this trend to its obvious conclusion.
A post that I can only classify as a black conservative manifesto, over at Black and Right.
Check out this photo and the accompanying essay at American Digest. I won’t tell you anything about it, because that would spoil it. Just check it out.
