Vote for "Not Dick Lugar"

That's what I'm going to do. Even if I have to vote for some excretable Democrat.

 Kenya PM threatens to arrest gays  

I'm always amused when a person or group representing a culture other than ours does or proposes something morally reprehensible. Not because of their actions but because of the reaction of my colleagues in academia. I know that they want to condemn it as quickly and as strongly as if George Bush or a fundamentalist Christian had said or did it. But dammit, we can't pass judgment on other cultures!

Ho ho ho!

Hypocrisy a virtue?

 The Times then and now 

You know, I think that hypocrisy is now considered a virtue by the Left.

PSH of the Day: Another "Arsenal Of Guns" Found

While some are focusing on news of the "Vet, 77, Busted For Obama Death Threat" "because he is not doing enough to help African Americans," I was interested in the report that his ". . . home was stocked with an arsenal of guns." Cool! I had imagined a whole room with wall-to-wall firearms. Arsenal, right? Well . . .
During a search of Bowden’s home, agents located three semi-automatic handguns and a semi-automatic rifle--all of which were “fully loaded, with rounds in the firing chamber--near his bed. In Bowden’s son’s bedroom, agents found 12 other guns, while a “loaded, short-barrel shotgun” was found near the home’s front door.
That would be judged a good start by myself and a fair number of people I know.

I direct y'all to the following:

TSA pat-down leaves traveler covered in urine

I haven't said much here about the TSA 'enhanced' pat down or the back-scatter x-rays (though I've made a lot of noise on facebook). Here I'll only say that in the coming days we'll see the Government at it's most obstinate to avoid reversing the current practice as it would give the impression that the people can control the Government. And the Government doesn't want that.
