VIDEO: A Muslim View of Peace and Tolerance

2011 May 16

Let’s pretend, for a moment, that academic freedom really did reign on America’s college campuses. I know, it’s difficult to envision, but just for the sake of argument let’s pretend it exists.

So into our little fantasy, let’s introduce a character. Let’s make him one of the most influential young conservative Christians in America, who is also a teaching assistant and Ph.D. candidate at Yale. (Ha ha ha! A well-known conservative Christian teaching at Yale! This is one crazy fantasy!)

And let’s say that in a lecture one day, he says the following things:

How Life Guards Get Paid $200K Per Year

In beach lingo, THIS is the Anointed One

It’s hard for kids who grow up near the ocean in sunny Southern California. Who wouldn’t be tempted to spend all their time hangin’ at the beach, soaking up the surf, sand, sun, and bikinis? Of course, the responsible ones stay home and do their studying and go to college and get good jobs. When they grow up, if they stay in Orange County (the OC), the median annual income is $71,735. Not bad, right? They made the wise decision to hit the books instead of the beach, right? I mean, they’re way better off than the slackers who spend their lives down in the sand… right?

WRONG.

Unequivocal Proof that Fox News Sucks

Your morning joe with a message of hope and change

This popular post was published here.

For all the union members screaming “Fox lies” during the Wisconsin protests… for President Obama insisting that Fox News is “destructive” for our country’s growth, and his administration attempting to de-legitimize them as a news organization by barring them from news conferences… for every logic-impaired idiot who has never actually watched Fox News but KNOWS that they aren’t journalists… here’s the proof that you’re right: screenshots of the two main cable news sites taken virtually at the same time. If a picture tells a thousand words, these two pictures should speak volumes:

So-Called “Moderate Muslims” Celebrate Osama bin Laden

2011 May 7

Protesting bin Laden's death at U.S. embassy in London

Certainly there is no lack of words about the departure from this world of the closest thing we had to a real-life Lord Voldemort. How we react to these pivotal news events says a lot about who we really are, our values and our priorities.

Quite a few honorable, patriotic Americans struggled a bit with how to respond to the demise of Osama bin Laden. There was definitely joy over the (vastly delayed) justice, and pride in our awesome military. But there was also sober contemplation of a life wasted in hatred and violence, and very little hope of a positive eternal reward (jokes about 72 virgins notwithstanding).

One thing none of the honorable patriots would have done was to eulogize bin Laden as a fallen hero. Only “radical Islamists” would do such a thing. Right?

Hannity Calls Out Rep. Keith Ellison for His Lies and Bigoted Smears

2011 April 30

This popular post was first published here.

Sean Hannity took on the media last week in a tour de force that should forever and always dismantle any argument that the mainstream or “legacy” media is objective. With such a large viewing audience, the hour-long special should cause some serious discomfort in “journolist” circles. There are a few other circles to which I’d like to introduce some discomfort. That’s why I hope Hannity will expand on a theme he ripped into with some gusto earlier this week, when Muslim Congressman Keith Ellison visited the Hannity show for the first time ever.

Things got a little heated.

The Oval Office Is Not Enough.. But the World Might Do… a Sobering Scare from Pajamas Media

2011 April 21

Well, he thinks he can.

Obama’s something of an enigma. Despite publishing not one but two autobiographies, his history and motivations are still cloaked in shadows. Conservatives argue: Is he incompetent? Savvy? Overwhelmed? Brilliant? How about evil? These questions are dismissed by both well-meaning (read: ignorant) liberals, and their more malicious and deliberate “swallowed-the-koolaid” leftist comrades. They dismiss questions about Obama’s history or motivation as racially motivated. After all, Tea Party types weren’t complaining till a “black man” got elected, right?

Feelin’ Your Pain: The Left BETRAYED by Obama’s Crass Re-Election Gambit

2011 April 19

They loved him so, so much.

 

The True Believers over on the Left are awash in a sea of insecurity, anxiety and unhappiness these days. Their Anointed One, their Savior (and no, I’m certainly not talking about Jesus, although the individual I have in mind does seem to think he can walk on water), has turned out to be not quite as unsullied, ideologically, as they imagined. In fact, they are questioning something that was previously accepted unquestioningly – Obama’s birth certificate. Oops no. They’re still not questioning that. What I meant to say was, they’re questioning Obama’s credentials as a True Believer himself.

Top 5 Insane Taxes We Are Forced to Pay

2011 April 18

As the week winds down to the big climax of Tax Day 2011, leftists are getting in the holiday spirit. They can be heard humming their favorite holiday tunes (“It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year”? “It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Tax Day”?) as their excitement mounts over what Obama Claus will put under the Tax Tree for all the good little Boxers and Franks. Who’s on his naughty list? Let’s just say bad boy Paul Ryan won’t be getting any holiday goodies in his Tax Day stocking.

Oh, wait. He wouldn’t have a Tax Day stocking, because nobody in their right mind is actually celebrating April 15. (Though, this year taxes are actually due this Monday on April 18. Go figure.)

But it does seem like a good time to take stock of the most foolish and in some cases insane ways the Left employs crass political gamesmanship in stealing our money. After all, they need a whole lot of it to satisfy their insatiable hunger for government spending, and feeding this beast requires annoying us with taxes at every turn.

Top 9 Reasons California Sucks

2011 April 16

California girls and Beach Boys. Disneyland. Hollywood. Year-round sun-kissed weather. The Golden Gate Bridge. San Francisco’s cable cars. Silicon Valley innovation. Napa Valley’s gorgeous vineyards and wineries. Majestic redwoods, snow-capped mountains. The richest farmland in the country. The beauties of Yosemite, Death Valley, and a thousand miles of breathtaking coastline.

There is a reason this is called the Golden State. Actually, a lot of reasons.

And I hate to relinquish this golden state to the Left. But in fact, they’ve already taken it.
