Here’s an interesting start to the week, from the UK Telegraph
Israel has launched a covert war against Iran as an alternative to direct military strikes against Tehran’s nuclear programme, US intelligence sources have revealed.
Maybe this is a sign of sources to come. In fact, it wouldn’t be too much of a stretch to believe that if President Bush were still at the helm, this would have been front page in the NYT.
EIB calls for salary caps at NBC News. GE took TARP money, should be subject to same rules as Wall Street. Especially since GE Capital accounts for 55% of GE’s revenue. Heh.
I received this invite from Eric Odom Nashville. should be a lot of fun.
During the 2008-09 campaign season, the free-market movement witnessed the opposing side of the political isle literally walk all over us when it comes to eActivism. Specifically, the translation of online political activism to offline political success.
Many within the freedom movement have discussed different ways of advancing our online efforts. But few, if any, have been able to collaborate on ways to implement these ideas and put them to work.
RootsHQ 2009 is a new Tech/NOW Media Summit that aims at tackling this problem. Our conference is geared towards tech savvy, online activists who have ideas to share, and want to learn from others as well.
If it’s good enough for Chavez, then how about The One? This didn’t take long
Mr. SERRANO introduced the following joint resolution; which was referred to the Committee on the Judiciary
Proposing an amendment to the Constitution of the United States to repeal the twenty-second article of amendment, thereby removing the limitation on the number of terms an individual may serve as President.
Get your vintage children’s books now before Henry Waxman outlaws them.
It’s hard to believe, but true: under a law Congress passed last year aimed at regulating hazards in children’s products, the federal government has now advised that children’s books published before 1985 should not be considered safe and may in many cases be unlawful to sell or distribute. Merchants, thrift stores, and booksellers may be at risk if they sell older volumes, or even give them away, without first subjecting them to testing—at prohibitive expense. Many used-book sellers, consignment stores, Goodwill outlets, and the like have accordingly begun to refuse new donations of pre-1985 volumes, yank existing ones off their shelves, and in some cases discard them en masse.
Thanks Henry. I feel safer already. Besides, it’s for the children, right? What a dickhead.
The SF Chronicle isn’t too enthused about The One’s power grab at the Census.
Allowing Obama politicos like chief of staff Rahm Emanuel – a top House Democratic strategist in his prior life – anywhere near the census adding machine is too partisan. It’s a Chicago-style setup that should worry any voter.
The Memphis Commercial Appeal has come under fire for invading the privacy of private citizens by posting personal information of CCW permit holders. Their justification for this outrage is laughable. In fact, Chris Peck says it’s all a “misunderstanding.” Then, he channels Henry Waxman and tells us he did it “for the children.”
A mom might now check the list to see if the parents at her kid’s sleep-over next door had a concealed weapon permit. If so, maybe it would be worth talking to them to make sure the gun is locked up.
A school official, concerned about whether teachers were bringing guns onto school grounds, might check the list to see whether anyone on the staff has a permit to carry, and then have a discussion about it.
Oh, please. I know the C/A has a great Sports section, but this is just too much. It’s time for Memphians to speak in the language that the C/A can understand. Cancel your subscription. And, if any of your neighbors has a subscription to the C/A, “maybe it would be worth talking to them” about it. And, after you do so, drop Chris Peck an email and let him know why. More: Walls of the City gives C/A a proper fisking.
And finally, while browsing the web this evening, I ran across Brad Warthen’s blog at The State. Brad discovered some interesting pixellation embedded in the Obama- hope poster. Click on the photo to enlarge.
