The Irresponsibility Of The Web

By D. E. Carson, published on Mar 1, 2008

Great Britain’s Prince Harry is back home. No thanks to a website hell bent on telling everything it knows to the whole damn world.

Prince Harry had been deployed to Afghanistan to serve with the Household Cavalry Regiment Battlegroup and was scheduled to return home in April after his tour ended. Major news outlets knew of the royal deployment and had all agreed to withhold releasing the information until the deployment ended.

But a big-mouthed website had other plans.

As of the writing of this article, the name of the irresponsible website has... (more)

A Bit Of Tarnish On That Statuette

By D. E. Carson, published on Feb 26, 2008

America was most likely so fed up with the “Will They Won’t They” back-and-forth push and pull asking if the Writer’s Guild would actually manage to find a deal in time to save the Academy Awards that it seems they didn’t bother watching. According to preliminary reports the 80th Annual Academy Awards, which in case you were among those who didn’t know, aired on ABC last night, was the lowest rated ceremony of the 80 year history of the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. The official “least watched” Oscar™ ceremony was... (more)

Cinderella's Castle This Ain't

By D. E. Carson, published on Feb 23, 2008

It's been called "The World's Worst Building" by Esquire magazine. Someone even had the unmitigated gall to liken it to Cinderella's Castle at Disney World. A surrealist video on YouTube even mimics the Walt Disney logo with the building's name scrawled across the front of it in that familiar Disney script font and Tinkerbell's half-circle arc over the building[1]. The video is as engrossing as the building itself. At first glance, one can't help but stare at it. Its 75 degree angled walls are about as wrong as a building can be. Yet, there is something about the Ryugyong Hotel that... (more)

Yes, But What Does He Mean "change"?

By D. E. Carson, published on Feb 22, 2008

I'm still waiting for Barack Obama to answer this one question:

Senator, you speak of change. Exactly what kind of change do you mean?

All Senator Obama can say is "It's time for a change." Change of what? Ideas? Mindset? Underwear?

We know that both Hillary and Obama are adamantly against the policies of the current sitting president. We also know that many of their supporters are ready to unleash the gates of Hell on the current administration should the word "impeachment" ever be uttered in the House of Representatives. With less than a year in the... (more)

A Clinton Presidency At Any Cost

By D. E. Carson, published on Feb 19, 2008

The howls and cries of “foul” still resonate in my ears from 2000. It made no difference how many times the votes in Florida were counted, Al Gore refused to give up his bid to succeed his former boss, Bill Clinton and he was bound and determined to get it. But at least he didn’t stoop to cheating.

Eight years have passed and liberals are hell-bent on regaining control of the American government. One liberal in particular is so hell bent on returning to the White House that she is prepared to cheat in ways no one would have ever imagined.

When states moved their primaries up (way... (more)

Clinton, Obama And McCain Consider The Fate Of The Gitmo Six

By D. E. Carson, published on Feb 18, 2008

Democratic candidates Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton want to hold formal civilian court or military courts martial. McCain would want the current military commissions to continue as they have. All three agree that the six al-Qaeda co-conspirators (I just love how the liberal press calls them "alleged al-Qaeda conspirators") deserve to have a trial. But their parties cannot decide among them how to best handle the "Gitmo Six".

Clinton wants to use the Justice Department to decide. Obama is afraid to comment "on specific cases pending before the tribunals at Guantanamo Bay." In other... (more)

More Cattle Less Bull

By D. E. Carson, published on Feb 13, 2008

Following another political spaking at the hands of opponent Barack Obama, Hillary clinton addressed a crowd of supporters at the University of Texas, El Paso basketball arena attempting to use a southern expression about the lack of substance she believes is very apparent in the Bush Administration."There's a great saying in Texas: all hat and no cattle. Well after seven years of George Bush, we need a lot less hat and a lot more cattle."It's not readily apparent, but it seems that Senator Clinton thinks she's a cow. Of course, on that particular aspect of her presence, I'm inclined to agree... (more)

States' Rights Battle Brewing

By D. E. Carson, published on Feb 1, 2008

The Civil War was about State’s Rights versus Federal Government Rights. The Confederacy believed that the States should have the right to decide for itself whether or not to enter the Union as a slave state or a free state. The Missouri Compromise was Congress’ attempt to settle the argument once and for all, but the Confederacy wanted nothing to do with it and thus began America’s first Civil War.

May 11, 2008 may be the start date of the second.

The 50 States have until May 11, 2008 to comply with the RealID Act – an Orwellian de facto... (more)

Untraceable Is Undesirable

By D. E. Carson, published on Jan 31, 2008

Rarely do I write a movie review on the fly like this, but I couldn't wait any longer. If you haven't seen Untraceable with Diane Lane, you haven't missed anything. If you paid money to go see it on opening weekend, you're just S.O.L.

There are only two positive aspects of this movie. Diane Lane is the first. No amount of late twentieth century urban street dweller clothing can hide how hot he is. Her character, Jennifer Marsh, is a cyber-crimes investigator attached to the Portland, Oregon field office of the FBI. This chick knows more about the Internet than most high school... (more)

Talk About Your Come From Behind...

By D. E. Carson, published on Jan 28, 2008

Despite all of the efforts of the Clinton presidential campaign, it seems that the people are tired of being told for whom who they plan to vote. Heading into yesterday’s South Carolina Democratic primary, former president and current presidential candidate Bill and Hillary Clinton proceeded to tell the nation how South Carolina would vote primarily for Her Majesty because of some racial thing. As it turned out, South Carolina Democrats had their own message to Hillary Clinton and it goes something like this: “shut up woman!”

Again, to prove a point... (more)
