11/30/2005: Opposing the war is one thing, hurling invective against the president is also one thing. Moveon.org takes it to a whole new level, as Michelle Malkin exposes creative fraudulent editing. Don’t tell me Mary Mapes and Dan Rather are working for them now! Of course, what do you expect? Moveon.org was investigated on suspicion […]
11/29/2005: There is no easier way to either (a) clear a room or (b) put everyone to sleep in record time than the mere mention of the word “economics”. Unfortunately, it should matter to everyone, because–no matter what your station in life, no matter what country in which you live, no matter how you choose […]
11/28/2005: Vox Day has written an outstanding essay regarding religion in science fiction and fantasy. As a longtime C.S. Lewis fan, all I can say is AMEN DUDE!
11/25/2005: Someone at Vox Day’s blog referred me to FredOnEverything.net. His writings are fascinating. In this one, he provides a pretty reasonable assessment on evolution. Keep in mind that he is not a creationist. I tend to look at things like an engineer, because that’s what I studied in my undergraduate life. I’m familiar with […]
11/25/2005: Now that Thanksgiving 2005 has come and gone, we are in the homestretch toward Christmas. ‘Tis the time for more spending, more fruitcake (on second thought, strike that thought), more fat men in red suits, Christmas plays, and other festivities associated with Christmas. The ACLU will also have a field day, pontificating what is–and […]
11/23/2005: Vox Day is one of the sharpest minds in the blogosphere. Combining the analytical expertise of an Ivy-leaguer with a Christian libertarian ideological bent, he’s usually right. When he’s at the top of his game, he has few equals. Unfortunately, he is very arrogant and slanderous toward many conservatives who should otherwise be among […]
11/23/2005: Gary Haugen is a hero of mine. As President and CEO of the International Justice Mission (IJM), he has led the efforts to combat human trafficking rings, and many girls have the prospect of freedom and healing because of the brave work of his IJM teams. In Terrify No More, he chronicles how IJM […]
I wish [Daly] had stayed, and I wish the board would have kept him on board. The dirty little secret is that Daly is hardly a lone voice in academia. His e-mail–which contained a plethora of venom against capitalism and western civilization–shows you that hatred for all things American extends to fourth-rate professors at third-rate institutions.
11/22/2005: A few days ago, few people outside of New Jersey had heard of Warren County Community College. Today, WCCC is in the middle of a nasty controversy over an e-mail by demagogue professor John Daly. In response to a student promotion of a soldier who was coming to discuss successes in Iraq, Daly fired […]
11/22/2005: Yesterday, General Motors announced that they will be closing nine plants and eliminating 30,000 jobs by 2008. These cuts represent about 10% of the total worldwide GM workforce. Any student of business knows that such cuts were all but inevitable. Arguably, they were necessary. Unfortunately, these new cuts–in and of themselves–will not make GM […]
