Oh good lord. Now Kenya wants to
kick whitey out too. Apparently they haven't learned anything from Zimbabwe. Africa's goin' down the tubes, man. Doesn't matter how much aid you throw at it.

Man bites dog! It's heavyhanded and not terribly fair but it's not that unusual. It's as if a catholic group started denying that the pope was their leader. The church is not a democracy. Maybe it should be, but to make it one would require upheaval like you wouldn't believe.

This is horribly addictive. Don't go
here if you're on a deadline today.

Down the rabbit hole.
What?

Two different bits on guns.
This just makes me shake my head. (I have to point out that the NRA is an organization funded entirely by it's members. It recieves no money from any manufacturer. I find the demonization of the organization rather odd in light of that. To pay attention to an organization comprised of, representing, and funded by 2 million registered voters is surely a bad thing for a politician to do. /sarcasm)

Then there's this, by the guy who did some serious damage to the reputations of the two most famous scholars on each side of the debate. (Bellesiles and Lott, if you care.)

I would just like to highlight
something here. These are the people who organized nearly all the anti-war demonstrations. (That they're pinko commie bastards is actually beside the point. And I do have to point out that these are the organizers not all the marchers. But...) They say:
"The anti-war movement here and around the world must give its unconditional support to the Iraqi anti-colonial resistance."
The group that organized those rallies is now telling everyone that they must support the "resistance" that is killing american soldiers. Got a loved one in the armed forces? These people support the folks that are trying to kill them. They don't care if PFC Jones joined up before all this happened, or wanted to go, or has a family. It's legitimate to kill him and you should support it. Read just the first page of that PDF. My favorite part was the comparison of Saddam to the leader of a slave revolt. That and the implication that everything would be kittens and sunshine if the US would just leave.

This is the other side. As instapundit says: they're not anti-war, they're just for the other side. And even a publication as traditionally critical of US policy as the Observer gets it. Sadly our college students do not.

It'll be interesting to watch how
this plays out. I can't see this being politically viable once people start to really be aware of it. It would cost us over $2000 to replace the sets we have. And although we have cable and so we don't have to replace them right away, it's taking away the functionality of something that people already own. I don't see that sitting well. Most especially with grandma and people on a fixed income. Those same people that politicians are always tripping over themselves to pander to anyway.

Oh. My. God. This is why...
this is why people are disgusted. You hyper-sensitive hyper-critical navel-gazing uber-PC freaks! The only people still fixated on race are you!
