    Turn on common sense Americans' dogged dislike of compact fluorescent bulbs defies reason Saturday, May 5, 2007 3:33 AM It has the makings of a titanic clash: the marketing muscle of Wal-Mart vs. the entrenched views of the American consumer, particularly the female sort. The company has vowed to convert at least 100 million households to compact fluorescent light bulbs, which benefit their users by consuming 75 percent less electricity, lasting 10 times longer than traditional incandescent bulbs and saving $30 over the life of each bulb. The big picture is just as impressive: Over its lifetime, one bulb generates...

    There is no question about Miers good character and temperament to be a judge. There is a question as to whether Miers is sufficiently smart and knowledgeable about Constitutional issues to be qualified to be a Supreme Court Justice. That is why I am undecided. The above concern is not however really a conservative versus liberal issue. Assuming Miers does well at the hearings as to matters of her basic competence, on what basis would “conservative” pressure groups of senators oppose Miers? That she does not have a paper trail? That they are not sufficiently confident that she will vote...

    .... To assume, however, that Bush is engaged in cronyism because he passed over these individuals for another qualified individual, one whose judgment he is familiar with personally rather than merely as a matter of reputation, is a disservice to both Miers and the president. It also ignores history. Justice Clarence Thomas is among the justices currently revered by conservatives for his service on the Supreme Court, and deservedly so. Yet at the time of his nomination, it would have been difficult to finger Thomas, only recently appointed to the Court of Appeals, as the nation's preeminent jurist, legal scholar,...
  • A Challenge for the all "illegal Immigration" obsessed freepers.

    <p>In the last three months the obsessed minority of freepers but very vocal who hate President Bush have been bombarding us with every illegal immigration thread under the sun so they have their "BASH BUSH ORGY".</p> <p>Pick up your phone and report to the INS about an illegal immigrant and his employer. I am sure you know at least one illegal immigrant who works in a convenient store, on a gas station, clean the garbage in your office, clean the bathroom at your work place... And I am sure you know one of these employers who hire illegal immigrants. Go ahead Mucho Guys, do your duty and report them to the INS. Let us see how courageous you are and let us see your action following your rhetoric.</p>
  • Gen. Franks Attacks Press (Franks takes it to media pukes. Pukes take umbrage.)

    Having labored in the vineyards of the journalism farm for more than three decades, I've always been of the mind that no one cares how many thorns we encounter or how much sweat falls from our brow. If a reporter has to cool his heels for hours before the great person is ready to give an interview and then endure any number of slights to get the story, I don't believe the reader cares, or that the press is under any obligation to pass that on. Like Tommy Lee Jones encountering "The Fugitive" Harrison Ford who professes "I didn't kill...

    Martha Stewart, the Queen of Nice? Martha Stewart insists she has "never not been nice to anybody" - and she doesn't understand why people take such delight in her insider trading troubles. Speaking out for the first time since the scandal broke in June, Stewart sounded bitter and frustrated about the dramatic reversal in her public image. "That I have been turned into or vilified openly as something other than what I really am has been confusing," Stewart, 61, told the New Yorker for an article in its issue out today. "I mean, we've produced a lot of good stuff...
