Commies Amongst Us

Filed under:Bill of Rights,Culture War,Shooting Sports — posted by 3wire on 6/26/2007 @ 6:03 pm

Apparently we aren’t the only ones who think Commies aren’t cool. This from Uncle Ted (Nugent) writing for the Waco Tribune on the Culture War, Paul McCartney firing a roadie for eating a hamburger, and the death tax. Good old Uncle Ted.

One hears the words of Mao Tse-Tung come broiling out of the mouths of its heroes, when Ted Kennedy and Hillary Clinton et al unflinchingly push for “redistribution of wealth.”

Central Texas’ own Chet Edwards has the audacity to support taxing the after-tax life savings of American families following the death of a loved one.

The unfair, un-American, unconstitutional death tax literally destroys mom-and-pop businesses across the land. Think about it.

The wall that once symbolized communism is down, yet some still want to give it a shot. Dear God in heaven, help us.

Cameron Diaz made a big mistake by wearing communist propaganda while vacationing in Peru.

President of Czech Republic on Enviromentalism

Filed under:Our Money,Science,Technology — posted by Q Ball on 6/21/2007 @ 10:46 pm

From the Financial Times:

The environmentalists ask for immediate political action because they do not believe in the long-term positive impact of economic growth and ignore both the technological progress that future generations will undoubtedly enjoy, and the proven fact that the higher the wealth of society, the higher is the quality of the environment. They are Malthusian pessimists.

This is one of the most eloquent statements I have heard regarding the “threat” of global warming.

This is excellent testimony given at a congressional hearing, regarding the federal governments attempts to limit the rights of individuals.

Apparently Angelina Jolie who stars in an upcoming movie about freedom of the press wanted to ban FOXNews from a recent viewing of the film!

San Francisco wants to ban the Blues

Filed under:General — posted by 3wire on 6/12/2007 @ 4:17 pm

I can’t imagine what it would be like to have to live in that bizaro world called California. The country is beautiful and most of the people are very friendly but I’ve never been there for more than a few days before getting attacked by some self-righteous politically-correct fascist over some horrific thing I’ve done like eat meat, wear leather shoes, or smoke a cigar. Just the fact that I live in Texas can be enough to set them off. I love the Blue Angels so naturally some idiots in California want to ban them.
From: Michelle Malkin

The moonbats continue to bash the Blue Angels in San Francisco. Here’s video of one of the leaders trying to kick the Blue Angels out of the city for Fleet Week. The Examiner’s letters page shows that there are a few sane people left there.

America – British Soldiers are Always Welcome.

Filed under:War on Terror — posted by 3wire on @ 3:52 pm

From: Micheal Yon

American soldiers think our press is bad to them, but we get off light compared to the Brits. One British soldier told me that when he made a journey of several hours across London, in uniform, not a single person acknowledged him. I said he should go to America where British soldiers are always welcome.

The Carbon Problem

Filed under:Science — posted by Q Ball on 6/11/2007 @ 3:44 pm

Carbon dioxide is a life giving molecule. Every plant on the face of the earth absorbs carbon dioxide and releases oxygen which humans need to survive. All the talk about reducing carbon dioxide in the atmosphere is mostly without merit. I don’t know when and how everyone became focused on carbon dioxide, but there are more dangerous molecules out there. Sulfur dioxide is one that comes to mind. All people should know this molecule’s name and be extremely concerned with the effects due to this molecule existing in the atmosphere. Sulfur dioxide is one of the key components of acid rain, but that isn’t being told in traditional media. As far as I know, no living thing uses sulfur dioxide to survive. Carbon dioxide is not the problem and I wish others would stand up and say so. Carbon dioxide is necessary for life to exist on this planet.

Putin Is Going Crazy

Filed under:General,Technology,War on Terror — posted by Q Ball on 6/3/2007 @ 6:01 pm

Putin recently said that he would point nuclear missiles at Europe in response to the United States’ missile shield there. What is this guy thinking? This is a continuation of his increasing rhetoric.

Battlestar Finale

Battlestar Galactica will end its series run after next season. My remorse could not be greater, however, I would rather the producers end the series on their own terms than drag the series out and fill it with sub-standard episodes.

New Microsoft UI

Filed under:General,Technology — posted by Q Ball on @ 5:56 pm

Microsoft has just unveiled a new and cool user interface called Surface. Users of the interface use a touch-sensitive table to interact with the software. Wired has a good intro article and video. You can also check out the official Microsoft site. This new interface has the potential to be really cool, something Microsoft is not known for.
