OMED: Many centuries after Christ, Islam marched to the West, putting
to the sword all who refused to convert. The Crusades were wars to defeat these
butchering terrorist Moslem armies, and to free the Holy Lands (Jerusalem,
specifically). The Crusaders won, which is why Spain and Italy, to name two,
are not yet major sources of Islamic terrorism, today. About half of Islam -- the
half that denies the Holocaust -- was very pleased with the Holocaust. What they
weren't pleased about is when, in 1948, the United Nations gave a chunk of the
land at the Eastern end of the Mediterranean Sea to the few survivors of the
National Socialist death camps that never existed. Terrorists just can't get a break.

The Pubbie Win Has Happened Before
(Proof that history does, indeed, repeat itself. The interesting thing here is the
thematic variation. History is like the blues. Three basic chords, a riff in "B,"
that humans assemble into a thousand songs. What matters is what happens
next. Have we been fishing, or just cutting bait, again?) The question is, will it
work this time? Well, that is up to the folks under the triangular TP tent.

FCC moves to ensure 'net neutrality'... (x-link)
Rush, among other conservative commentators, says that this is a clever move to
control internet content. A kind of backdoor "Fairness Practices" act. But,
Oregon Magazine columnist, Art Hyland, says this is about another kind of
"fairness." Not an attempt at violating the U.S. Constitution by a government takeover
of electronic journalistic content -- as was the case wih the "Fair Practices Act." This one
is something else: namely the use of "fairness" with respect to cost. Think of it as a variety
of "redistributionism." If, after reading the link above, you haven't the faintest idea what is
going on, welcome to the club. We've taken Art's explanation and reprinted it just below.
Click on that, and maybe it will help. Decide for yourself who's right about this: Rush,
Art, both or neither one. (Our hunch is both, to some degree.)

Obama Administration Finally Achieves Transparency
November 23, 2010 -- The brilliant conservative talk show host, Rush
Limbaugh, today illustrated the first mid-term election adaptation by
the Obama White House. When North Korea attacked South Korea
this morning, the White House described the NK behavior as "very,
Thus, we now have a Limbaugh Lens to use for communications clarity.
One very means a North Korean shot a South Korean. Two verys
means a heavier device, like a cannon was fired. Three verys indicates
a carrier attack, and four verys tells you Kim Jung Il, or whatever the latest
"dear leader" there is called, has dropped a nuke on South Korea.

it seems, can be downright race track mean.)

Amid all the political excitement being stirred up

implications of the global warming debate. Goreham,

asks very pertinent and informed questions.
