12/31/2006: Well, not quite. But don’t tell that to the man on the receiving end of an attack by Rebecca Arnold Dawson. She attacked him so badly that he needed 50 stitches to repair the damage. Dawson is charged with malicious castration.
12/31/2006: Jihadists make no bones about promoting videos of their merciless executions of innocent people. So here’s the execution of Saddam Hussein, who received a fair trial, was convicted, sentenced to death, and had his appeal dismissed. THAT is the future of Islammunism.
12/31/2006: While many–myself included–complain of the exhorbitant compensations earned by many high-flying corporate execs, I’ll never argue against the obvious reason: they are making that money because the market is willing to pay them at such levels. Thomas Sowell makes the latter point quite well in his most recent column. Now how do I reconcile […]
12/30/2006: Vox Day is celebrating the “retirement” of Hans Zeiger. Like Vox, I tend to have an uneasy feeling with respect to young pundits, as even the really smart ones don’t yet have the breadth of life experience to bloviate on a variety of issues. Even Ben Shapiro, who wrote well about issues that he […]
12/30/2006: Saddam Hussein has been tried, convicted, and executed by the Iraqi people he terrorized for the better part of three decades. Some will complain that his trial was not fair, that this was a kangaroo court in which the verdict and outcome were never in doubt. I beg to differ. That Saddam was guilty […]
12/29/2006: A certain pastor in my community–a Baptist no less–writes columns every week. Some of them appear in the local paper, and others appear in other publications. All are posted on the web site of the church he pastors. I have been using his thoughts as the object lesson for the difference between Biblical Christianity […]
12/29/2006: I’m sure everyone has heard the tale of a child who killed his parents, then pleaded for the court to have mercy on him because he is an orphan. In a nutshell, that’s the Palestinians. Today, they have more land than they did in 1947. Unfortunately, for all the land that the Israelis give […]
12/29/2006: Earlier this year, the Wall Street Journal sent shockwaves through the corporate community by exposing a scandal far more insidious than Enron, Worldcom, Tyco, and Global Crossing. Combined. I’m referring to the stock option backdating scandal, which has enveloped over 130 companies, their boards, and their execs. These companies–including Apple Computer and Steve Jobs–were […]
12/28/2006: Why should anyone other than sports enthusiasts like myself–or those with ties to Marshall University–see We Are Marshall? By now, every sportswriter in America has offered the usual cliches about a gutsy bunch of young college folks who “came together” and “overcame great adversity” and “believed in themselves” and “rose from the ashes” and […]
12/28/2006: Paul Craig Roberts, a right-leaning economist and extreme Bush critic, weighs in on the regime of former Chilean dictator Gen. Augusto Pinochet, and provides a more flattering picture of him than is provided by the leftist news media. On one hand he is correct: compared to the Allende regime he displaced, Pinochet was quite […]
