  • Dear Cruz Supporters: Ted Sucks -- Vanity

    There are at least 10 threads covering the speech and the fallout, so no need to discuss that. Instead, the fact that the most "Christian" candidate this year ends up being the most hateful, spiteful and selfish *sshole around is a good thing to discuss. How do his supporters justify the disconnect between his beliefs and behavior?

    Sometimes, the best way to figure out what politician will best serve your values and interests is to look at what those antithetical to your interests are trying to force upon you. In this election, the Leftist media and the decidedly non-conservative GOP are steering conservative voters either to Donald Trump or Marco Rubio. At the same time, they are using every available tactic to destroy Ted Cruz's candidacy. This should tell us something, and the something it tells us is that Ted Cruz should be the conservative candidate of choice. Let me start with the media's manipulations. To appreciate...

    I'm pretty sure Obama un-wisely went off script and told a whopper of a lie when he claimed he first heard of the IRS scandal on May 10. This must have driven the west Wing crazy, knowing that they would now have to protect that lie with a series of implausible defenses.check out this excerpt from the Washington Post / Post Partisan column:

    GLEN BURNIE, Md.- Maryland's Motor Vehicle Association has unveiled a 30-foot statue of a crash test dummy outside of its headquarters in Glen Burnie. John Kuo, administrator for the Motor Vehicle Association, said the bright yellow statue is meant to serve as a safety reminder for the state's motorists, The Baltimore Sun reported Wednesday. Kuo, who said both of his siblings were killed in a car crash when he was 12, said the 500 road-related deaths last year was a record low for the state. "Can you imagine, we only lost 500 people and that's a reason to be happy?"...

    Extraordinary and beautiful examples of toroidal vortices produced by dolphins, beluga whales, humpback whales, volcanoes, hydrogen bombs, and man. A toroidal vortex, also called a vortex ring, is a region of rotating fluid moving through the same or different fluid where the flow pattern takes on a toroidal (doughnut) shape. The movement of the fluid is about the poloidal or circular axis of the doughnut, in a twisting vortex motion. Examples of this phenomenon are a smoke ring or a microburst. Vortex rings were first mathematically analysed by the German physicist Hermann von Helmholtz, in his paper of 1867 On...
