Tuesday Morning Musings
Weather report from north central Texas: clear and cold. Supposed to get into the 60's today, so it should be a gorgeous day. Please keep Cowgirl in your prayers today as she will risk it all journeying north on I-35 today in amongst all the tractor-trailer rigs generally going about 80 mph, bumper-to-bumper. A true nail-biter of a trip.
Well, the Drudge Report this morning is a bust for much of anything to write about.
I did enjoy the x-ray of the armed hunk. The x-ray really shows all the weapons clearly. As far as I'm concerned, if that is what it takes to properly screen passengers at the airport, then so be it. The flying public can simply choose whether or not they want to fly under the terms and conditions of necessary security measures. Pretty simple, really.
Reuters report on the President not routinely discussing his job with his father.... yawn, another non-story from al-Reuters. My dad, brother and I were all lawyers, but we didn't talk law when we got together. In fact, we avoided it like the plague. The only problem we had was when we went out to eat. We all fought over the place at the table with it's back to the wall. Round tables in the corner worked out best.
Apparently, in the bus shelters in San Francisco, in an effort to sell milk, the shelters are being scented with the smell of cookies. Aren't bus shelters kinda.... well.... open air? I'm wondering how you could smell the cookie scent while being overwhelmed with the smell of exhaust? It must make sense. People are sooo much smarter in California.
Moving along... Captain Ed has a good post on the CAIR v. Prager feud, writing that,
"Yesterday CAIR issued a statement demanding the removal of Dennis Prager from the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Council for a matter completely unrelated to the Holocaust. Prager had objected to newly-elected Muslim Congressman Keith Ellison's plans to use a Qur'an for his oath of office rather than the Bible."No matter what your personal opinion of using the Qur'an rather than the Bible to swear an oath of office in the United States, the point that I'd like to make is that CAIR is certainly getting very visible and "in-your-face." First we have the bizarre Traveling Imam charade, and now this. Let's just look to Western Europe and the U.K. to see how this whole thing of letting Muslims have control in formerly democratic countries is working out. Reality check time, folks. If you haven't been to London lately, let me just tell you, it doesn't feel like you are in London. I haven't been to France in a while, but if you keep up with the news stories, all those "youths" setting the country ablaze and killing Jews and anyone else who gets in their way, are not what we normally think of as "the French."
The good Captain has another tidbit I've not heard about elsewhere, having to do with Kim Jong-Il of North Korea running a state sponsored insurance scam. What will that sneaky little bugger think of next. First the counterfeiting of US currency and now killing his citizens, and the state falsifying the cause of death, and filing insurance claims against manufacturers of the products which are the alleged cause of death. Pathetic.... but sneaky....
And now I'll go for the big finish.... the feel-good post of the day..... hatched by Dafydd at Big Lizards, entitled: "Borg Culture: Steyn, Jihad, and the End of Predestinarianism" I'm not going to spoil the sheer joy of reading and savoring this post. Just take a tip from Cowgirl and read and savor it.
