  • Happy Washington's Birthday February 22 Celebrate with Cherry Pie!

    Vanity | 02.22.17 | chicken-of-the-soup
    Today is Washington's Birthday. He is a president that deserves honors and accolades. A man who refused to be king. And helped birth the most amazing political experiment in history. While we are contending for our own liberty, we should be very cautious not to violate the rights of conscience in others, ever considering that God alone is the judge of the hearts of men, and to him only in this case they are answerable. GEORGE WASHINGTON, letter to Benedict Arnold, Sep. 14, 1775 Nothing is a greater stranger to my breast, or a sin that my soul more abhors,...

    I just checked my television to make sure the game will show well, it is a 70 inch sharp you folks helped me choose a while back.

    For the past 2¼ years, whenever my wife and I traveled, we made our house available for short-term rentals through Airbnb. We rented out the house to men and women of many races, religions, national origins, ethnicities, and ages. We made money; Airbnb made money; the city of Austin and the state of Texas made money (15 percent of our gross revenue). Airbnb even designated Susan a Superhost, which she well deserved: She had a five-star (out of five) rating from 37 groups of guests. The New York Times reported last month that “only 7 percent of hosts are Superhosts.”...

    I want to have two backups. One for the office and one for home. The office backup is a little Toshiba, which does very well. For the home backup I bought a Passport Ultra. I hooked it up to the machine to back up, using its own utilities and after 24 hours it had backed up less than 5%. I talked on the phone with the nice man from India. He made a suggestion. Another 24 hours. 5%. I brought it to Staples techs. They decided that it was probably encrypting everything and that is why it is taking so...

    They are some of the biggest names in the Republican national security firmament, veterans of past GOP administrations who say, if called upon by President-elect Donald Trump, they stand ready to serve their country again. But their phones aren’t ringing. Their entreaties to Trump Tower in New York have mostly gone unanswered. In Trump world, these establishment all-stars say they are “PNG” — personae non gratae. Their transgression was signing one or both of two public “Never Trump” letters during the campaign, declaring they would not vote for Trump and calling his candidacy a danger to the nation.

    Dear Mrs. Web, I went out to dinner with a few friends recently. Several of the guys who are my friends, were there with their fiancées. One guy has been away in the military for a long time and we were all happy to see him. His girlfriend and he were snippy with each other and over the evening their arguing became more intense. The bulk of the argument seemed to be that he didn’t get the right items when he went shopping earlier. She just kept hammering it. It was uncomfortable for everyone, and we all broke up early....

    Donald Trump’s victory over Hillary Clinton came as a shock to many — and for many women who opposed Trump in particular, Clinton’s loss was personally devastating. But in the days since the election, desperation and fear have swelled into a plan for action: a “Women’s March on Washington” on January 21, the day after Trump’s inauguration and the first full day of his administration. What started as a viral idea on social media has snowballed into a potentially massive event, with more than 100,000 people already saying on Facebook that they plan to attend. It has the potential to...

    I ran into some conversation about Kimberly Guilfoyle from Fox News as a possible candidate for press secretary. She seems competent, but could she manage? I am not that familiar with her. Whoever takes the position needs to be a tough but flexible and the argument ran that Ingraham is too soft for the job, Monica Crowley is to rigid, but that Guilfoyle is intelligent, hard nosed but able to flex.

    Looking back on a Chicago childhood in the 1940s I was at a pro-life meeting in Detroit in the late 1970s, with a biologist debunking the “population problem.” He pointed out that if everyone in the world moved to Texas, there would be 1,500 square feet for every man, woman, and child. That was the size of the footprint of his house in San Francisco. Texas, with that influx of population, would still be less dense than San Francisco; and San Francisco had many open places for parks and tennis courts. When it was my turn to speak, I remarked...

    Noticing that the vitriol against conservatives and their leadership has biome entrenched and permissible. Lot of moral preening and leftist activities to continue to make conservatives fearful or embarrassed to support the causes they believe in, not because there is a problem with the ideas and causes, but because conservatives are fearful of physical harm or property damage. This needs to stop and conservatives need to seize the narrative, they way that Trump did throughout the pre-election cycle. For example Barney Frank ( and why is he still above ground with a microphone?) just claimed that Trump thought that Scalia...

    The following is adapted from a speech delivered on July 11, 2016, at Hillsdale College’s Allan P. Kirby, Jr. Center for Constitutional Studies and Citizenship in Washington, D.C., as part of the AWC Family Foundation Lecture Series. In the Communist Manifesto, Marx and Engels wrote that “the history of all hitherto existing societies is the history of class struggles.” Today the story of American politics is the story of class struggles. It wasn’t supposed to be that way. We didn’t think we were divided into different classes. Neither did Marx. America was an exception to Marx’s theory of social progress....

    What is wrong with Hillary Clinton's outfits? I have noticed that she seems to go for the pants under dress and pants under long skirt look favored by the local modern Moslims (I use the word Moslims deliberately, it is the old spelling). At first I thought the outfits were designed to hide figure flaws or medical equipment, but the more I look at them the more I wonder whether there may be a religious component or a signaling to her Moslim Saud owners by wearing what no Western woman would ever wear in public. Your thoughts?

They may be flooding caucus rooms across the country, but Donald Trump supporters at NYU keep their heads down, mouths shut and their correspondence secret. Lying in class about their political beliefs and keeping online conversations strictly private are typical precautions taken by The Donald’s badly outnumbered followers on campus. “Supporters generally try to keep it hidden from the rest of the student body,” said junior Dylan Perera, 22. “They’re afraid of losing friends, being ridiculed in class, getting worse grades and are even afraid of being assaulted and physically...

Steyn has over the years, fought time and time again for freedom of speech, and freedom of thought. I respect him. I find him a highly ethical man in this world of dubious ethics. I watched him in the legal battles at McLean's magazine. I read his forward to Geert Wilders Book "Marked for Death" where he said that Wilders could not find anyone who would be associated with the book and would Mark mind writing...

Homeless street vendors carry mobile credit-card readers. Even the Abba Museum, despite being a shrine to the 1970s pop group that wrote "Money, Money, Money," considers cash so last-century that it does not accept bills and coins. Few places are tilting toward a cashless future as quickly as Sweden, which has become hooked on the convenience of paying by app and plastic. – New York Times Dominant Social Theme: Remove analog...

    After 15 years with my medical group, I received the advanced directive from them. Modeled after the Obama care directive it was interesting to note that the doctor's group directive asks whether one wants to choose whether to be KEPT ALIVE when one has an illness that will not get better, cannot be cured, and will result in one's death quite soon, i.e. a terminal condition. Or when one is no longer unconscious, and likely one would never regain conscious again. The other choice is to be kept alive as long as possible. All other directives I see ask whether...

    program. A judge on Monday unsealed the court documents of a grisly murder of a Christian man, allegedly at the hands of three Muslim immigrants in Portland, Maine.

He was the victim of a savage attack that took place over several hours. According to the autopsy report, he had cuts and bruises all over his body, with the fatal blows coming to his head. Akoa, who...

    America's Anchorman, Rush Limbaugh, returns to the airwaves tomorrow, so, as EIB's very own Anchor Baby, I enjoyed a second day behind the Golden EIB Microphone. You can find a few moments from the show here: The Republican Party has become the party of 'Nothing Can Be Done.' It's the Council of Despair. Donald Trump is the symptom, but the disease is a do-nothing Republican Party. I asked the question during the show "What is the Republican Party for?" I'm not sure I got a satisfactory answer. One chap who might have provided one is Rick Wilson, the self-proclaimed top...
