Some more notches in the Bomma's foreign policy belt

Our "new tone" seems to be producing results:

Russia to develop new first strike technologies.

Iranian hardliners want "no mercy" for dissidents.

Hope. Change. Hope. Change.

On the record

The Dems sure talk a good game in the heat of the moment, but as soon as that moment passes they seem to forget all about their earlier concerns and instead turn on those providing our security. The latest is Dianne Feinstein:

Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.), chairman of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, said there should have been swift action after a member of the Nigerian government alleged that his son was becoming radicalized.

"It seems to me that when this happens, the person should go automatically on the no-fly list," she said. "I'd rather, in the interest of protecting people, overreact rather than underreact."

Really Dianne? Because I would certainly hope that would be your position. The question is, will that be your position 3 months from now? 6 months from now? 1 year from now? Or, when necessary precautions are taken in the future to protect the American people, will you instead turn around and start accusing law enforcement officers of "profiling" or "overzealous interrogations?"

Not unlike Sen. Pelosi, who in 2002 was briefed on enhanced interrogations like waterboarding and not only did she not object, but the committee apparently asked if stronger steps should be taken. The same Pelosi who just a few years later led the charge against those trying to protect us, and pulled a complete 180 from her earlier stance.

Somehow these senators have got to be held accountable. One hopes the MSM is paying attention and highlights any hypocrisy.

Carville with the secret to a healthy marriage

The guy is funny. No question.

"As long as one person's not arguing there's nothing to argue about. I don't have a position on anything domestically, so I just say 'yes' and then go on and do it.

I would say the three ingredients to a successful marriage: surrender, capitulation and retreat. If you got those three things..."

Matalin, not surprisingly, has better advice. But Carville's is funnier.

Wikipedia Part of Overstating the Case for Climate Change

There's nothing to see here. The unprecedented warming we're seeing now was not preceded by a similar warming period 1000 years ago. Oh wait ... it was, but that's irrelevant.

Another year of camaraderie and fun

Back for year 6 in SGL 183, and the OccObs crew continued their domination of the local deer population, liquor supply, and the universal quota on fun.

Of course, this was another year in which Caribou Express earned a slate of nicknames:

Kleenex Goopta
Audible Apnea
House Mouse

and most importantly,

Floor "Bowl Missa" O'Dookie

But even more imporatnt than that was the opportunity to enjoy the solitude, oppression, and beauty of the woods. And pack the freezer full of venison. And watch D.C. stare down belligerent porcupines.

Hey, Beetz, I'm still waiting on photos to post here.

Thank You

Jim DeMint and John Ensign:

“An individual mandate to enter into a contract with or buy a particular product from a private party, with tax penalties to enforce it, is unprecedented-- not just in scope but in kind--and unconstitutional as a matter of first principles and under any reasonable reading of judicial precedents.”

The Tides Are Turning

I may be prematurely optimistic, but I take it as a good sign when a Dem switches parties.

This is almost enough to get me to start drinking coffee...

Great Charity

For anyone still looking for a charity to donate to before the end of the year, I have a great suggestion: Homes for our Troops.

They build homes for returning vets with severe disabilities, and provide them at NO cost to the soldier. You can either donate to the general fund, or if you pick an individual state you can see all the current soldiers they are building homes for and donate to a specific one. It is a very highly rated charity by AIP, which monitors charities to make sure they have very low overhead rates so most of your donation goes directly to the charitable effort. They have also been recognized by both Pres. Bush and Ted Kennedy.

This Guy Won't Go Away

Chavez got a standing ovation for lauding socialism, and denouncing capitalism and the U.S.

Exhibit #99,459,984 of someone who should have had a 12-gauge handy

Even in our sleepy, quiet, and "safe" bedroom communities. Nothing to worry about here--the police are protecting us!

From Newsday:

A Bohemia homeowner was shot to death during a home invasion by two masked men who broke into the house and demanded money just after midnight Monday, police said.

Hey Beasty, give us your review of the "The Road"

I believe every contributor (except for maybe SHK and Beetz; but Beetz lives the book) who hasn't seen the film has already read the book.

MB? What say you? Did it capture the essence of the novel? Was it better for having Charlize Theron? Does the film rip out your will to live half as much as McCarthy does?

You write now.

Ho Ho Whoa!

Check out the Santa before you put your kids on his lap. You might want to reconsider.

Well, Chris Matthews took the leap from just another bleeding heart liberal to a full bore anti-American stance with his comment last night that West Point was "enemy camp" for Pres. Obama.


So when you are elected to be the commander-in-chief of this country, West Point is "the enemy?" I guess there are a lot of things I still don't understand.

Global "Hot Air"

As always, Prof. Lindzen of MIT provides an excellent rebuttal in the WSJ to the climate alarmist crowd.
