Google is taking over the world and you know, I’m cool with that.  Amazing statement since Sergey Brin is a flaming liberal who, I’m sure, after a few more years will prove to be the Anti-Christ along with George Soros. But I got to tell ya, I love the stuff you can do with Google’s apps. My newest favorite is being able to measure any distance on earth in practically any measure of unit you can conceive of.

Feel like knowing how many Pergamon cubits it is to the nearest Safeway?…no problem. How about how many American football fields it is to the nearest American football field? Cubits, rods, furlongs, links, chains and light years. Damn these guys at Google are geeks.

Pray for Haiti October 31, 2010

I’m beginning to wonder if God really has it in for the people of Haiti. The poorest nation in the western hemisphere has suffered calamity after calamity and now Hurricane Tomas looks poised to pass directly over the impoverished island. As of September 2010, there were over one million refugees living in tents and the humanitarian situation has been characterized as still being in the emergency phase since the devastating earthquake in January. Just last week news reports of a cholera outbreak added to the misery that has befallen this poor country.

Hurricane Tomas' projected path

Even a nominal storm will cause untold destruction and Tomas is forecast to be at least a Cat. 2 when he passes. Pray for the winds to miss the island. Pray for the people of Haiti.

NPR–unfair, unbalanced…and afraid. October 21, 2010

Juan Williams

I’ve been trying to resist political posts recently, mainly because of the “if a tree falls in the forest and no one is there to hear it” maxim. But this got my blood boiling.

National Public Radio fired Juan Williams for daring to speak his mind. His offense was to admit to what any sane human should think these days. “….But when I get on the plane, I got to tell you, if I see people who are in Muslim garb and I think, you know, they are identifying themselves first and foremost as Muslims, I get worried. I get nervous.”

NPR has always been the most continuous  source of liberal slanted news on the radio. Liberal talk outlets like Air America came and went because, as privately funded outfits, they relied on advertising to survive. NPR is funded in large part by our tax dollars. A steady stream of cash that fears nothing from the free market. Well that needs to change. I’m writing my (new) senator and (new) congressman to pass legislation to stop funding NPR with public money. If you’re as outraged as I am with a publicly funded media outlet that espouses far left propaganda, pick up the phone or write an e-mail. It all starts with us.

 


Tenure is evil October 19, 2010

Tenure. Liberalism’s greatest tool.

The most egregious example is in academia. Put in your time, publish regularly and you secure a permanent job regardless of your performance after the fact. Now we have yet another professor, espousing hate and he will face no other consequence than a three-sentence excuse from the school’s administration. “Michael Hill, the school’s executive vice president, told CBN that the University in no way agrees with or supports Siddique’s comments on Israel. But, he added, Siddique is tenured and has freedom of speech, and the school cannot control his private life. He added that the school will ensure his personal views do not seep into the classroom.”

The Daily Texan also questions why we allow tenure.

Liberal academia is destroying this country. This is where evil is spawned, inseminating itself throughout society. Journalism and law students are the most easily infected and give the highest return on investment once unleashed into the masses. Tenure protects liberalism. It eliminates incentive and accountability. Tenure must be eradicated, especially in public organizations that receive public funds. No one is above losing their job for poor behavior or performance, especially those in position of power and influence.

I love logos.

One of my favorite classes in college was a design class that asked us to design logos that integrated the subject or meaning of the logo in the logo itself.

Here are some more great examples.
