All the good stuff that’s fit to publish on the internet *UPDATED*

For the last two days, I haven’t been blogging much, but I’ve been collecting stuff to read and share with you.  In no particular order, my collection:

Are you an old fart?  I certainly am, and proud of it.

There are several expressions that cover the need to make a decision in the face of uncertainty (e.g.,  “Fish or cut bait.”  “S*** or get off the pot.”)  Bruce Kesler explains that, in the face of Obama’s panicked inertia, Israel had better fish or . . . do other stuff.

Ben Shapiro has, bar none, the best post I’ve seen explaining what Critical Race Theory is and why it should matter to those who, this year, will be given the opportunity to examine candidate Obama once again.

Even in these unhappy times (and the world is struggling), Dennis Prager reminds us that happiness is a possibility and, morally, an imperative.

I am not a birther.  Really.  But this one surprised me.  Is Adams for real, or is he a conspiracy theorist who conveniently presented himself when the opportunity arose?

Finally.  A clear, logical, comprehensive explanation for our current very high gas prices, prices that are higher in real dollars than they were during the Carter years.  I’m not sure Obama has enough speechifying in him to explain this away.

The disturbing racial/eugenicist implications of unlimited abortion.

Spengler (i.e., David Goldman) has been writing for some time about the problems inherent in Muslim population decline.  And no, I didn’t make a typo.  Despite the proud boasts and misleading data about the way the Palestinian population explosion will inevitably overrun Israel, the fact is that the Muslim world is in decline.  The MSM has finally noticed, but they’re getting the wrong message from the facts.

Here, we talk about impeachment.  In Iran, they do something about it.

Please add anything you think is interesting.

UPDATE:  I wasn’t planning on updating this post, but Victor Davis Hanson hit one out of the park, right into must-read territory.

Be Sociable, Share!

    Sunshine Week: Obama supports new category of secret gov’t files

    The Price of Blood in Afghanistan

    “The alleged attack on Afghans by an American soldier in Kandahar, where 91 soldiers have been murdered last year alone, is already receiving the full outrage treatment. Any outrage over the deaths of those 91 soldiers in the province will be completely absent.
    There will be no mention of how many of them died because the Obama Administration decided that the lives of Afghan civilians counted for more than the lives of soldiers. No talk of what it is like to walk past houses with gunmen dressed in civilian clothing inside and if you are fired at from those houses, your orders are to retreat…. ” 

    No matter what your sentiment on the Afghan war is, this deserves a read, because I believe this is what Afghanistan has become.


    BrianE – as with everything he touches, meddles in/with – it becomes weaker, more damaged and sadly more tragic.
    Bookworm, excellent choice of updates from VDH. Why Obama can’t run on his record.
    It’s broken
    It’s only one tune  –  “It’s not my fault”
    His back up singers, such as; Rev. Wright, Prof. Bell, Tony Rezko are in a: a) closet, b) cemetary, c) jail
 cost more to produce it than what it took in.

    > if you are fired at from those houses, your orders are to retreat….

    Could we look any weaker?

    Obama has announced that we’re leaving.  That automatically makes us the weak horse in the region, the one who deserves the least paying attention to.  And now we flee – flee! – at the slightest sign of any aggression.  Military men, soldiers… fleeing.

    That is insane.  If our leadership ordered our soldiers to fight in six-inch high stiletto pumps while waving featherdusters, it couldn’t get any more insane.

    One of those nights when I was deep asleep, I must have slipped dimensions, time and space, and woke up in a different universe.  A universe in which common sense has been abandoned.  In so many ways things just seem impossibly insane these days.

    People hear our government – which is huge – is spending 40% of its money via debt, and they are not grim and horrified. “Ho hum, whatever.”  Forty percent of small would be small, but forty percent of huge is massive.  Common sense, abandoned, simply gone, even among conservatives.  Brains are empty, or at least, remarkably absent of most neural activity.  A nation of Homer Simpsons.  Everyone should be outraged at the EVIL being perpetrated upon the next few generations, but they are not.  At least conservatives are “concerned”, it seems, based on the reactions I see.  But “concern” is NOT enough.  So what if the liberals are even more insane than conservatives.  The truth is, we’ve all abandoned common sense.

    People hear Obama say he is “doing everything he can to keep the price of gas down”, and they don’t break out immediately in derisive, HOWLING laughter.  Many of them actually believe the outright deceit.  Maybe the rest of us think we’re being tactful or, er, strategic, by remaining silent or calm in the face of such craziness.

    It seems on some days that I could go on with thousands of similar examples, and this is one of those days.

    I’m reminded of Poe’s description of the revelers in The Mask Of The Red Death… desperately putting on airs of gaiety, furiously determined to avoid seeing reality.  At all costs.

    Give me a few days. Maybe optimism will return.

    Are you an old fart?

    Missed only one. Am I the summa cum laude graduate?

  • jj

    If optimism returns at this point, Mike, you really will have become disconnected.


    Caped Crusader – that was entertaining, thanks.

    This one caught my eye,  “If you ever ate at Sambo’s, you are an old fart.”  I had a dog named Sambo – makes me an old fart and a racist.

    Obama loves to see Americans suffer. What better way to get that done then lazily sending them to a war and then telling them they can’t fight back.

    No recent articles on Israel, Book.  So I’ll add this here.

    Egypt has finally dropped its false face.  Joshuapundit’s lead article right now has this to say (and much more!)

    From Joshuapundit:
    The Islamist dominated Egyptian parliament voted unanimously on March 12 to expel Israel’s ambassador, recall Egypt’s ambassador to Israel and to halt gas exports to Israel.

    To vote took the form of an overwhelming endorsement of a report by the Egyptian Parliament’s Arab affairs committee that declared “Revolutionary Egypt will never be a friend, partner or ally of the Zionist entity (Israel), which we consider to be the number one enemy of Egypt and the Arab nation. It will deal with that entity as an enemy, and the Egyptian government is hereby called upon to review all its relations and accords with that enemy.”

    There’s nothing anyone really needs to add to that.  The truth is clear.

    Caped Crusader’s “quiz” on ‘Are you an Old Fart’?

    That was a lot of fun!  I didn’t qualify on about ten of them.  I’m mostly an old fart!  Some of those really brought back the memories.  I sure do love the America that they reminded me of.
