As promised, the Morris Sun Tribune published my letter about the Morris chimes. I want ‘em gone.
Answers in Genesis has an explanation for why the state of Kentucky yanked the tax exemption from their Ark Park. It doesn’t have much basis in reality, which is probably why they presented it on Fox News this morning.
Smarmy AiG Lawyer: We have a theory about that. I think it’s because these radical atheist kind of organizations have applied political pressure, and it’s sad when that happens. It also happens to be unlawful and that’s why it looks like we may be headed to court.
Fox News host: Why is it unlawful?
Hey, that was my question! Why should it be unlawful for an atheist organization to use politics to oppose actions that are against their interests? That’s what politics is for!
I’m partially recovered from my orgy of grading yesterday, and I’m going to defer that last stack of term papers until tomorrow. Today we’re going to the Big City! First stop will be in St Cloud to have lunch with Eldest Son, then off to Minneapolis for a meetup with a few of my FtB pals and any interested and friendly locals.
It’s that time. Finals are over. The students get to relax, and many of them get to travel home to enjoy time with family. And we professors get to sit before stacks of exams, a battery of red pens at hand, and begin the awful process of grading.
I am about to cloister myself with two sets of exams and a pile of term papers, and I will not emerge until they are done. My goal is to get through them all before our trip to Minneapolis tomorrow. So no distractions allowed.
Bachmann is out of office, fleeing political life one step ahead of being caught out in her ethics violations. But she’s still happy to lie for her cause, and brag about defeating liberals.
Well, telling the truth bothers them,Bachmann said.They don’t like to have the truth told about them, and that’s really what it is. I didn’t fear the left. I decided to take them on in the arena of ideas by attacking their false premises and their false narratives.
Bachmann told World Net Daily, which referred to her as aGOP legendin the headline, that she had become a media target because she had basically outsmarted her liberal foes.
That’s the best way to defeat them, by the way — defeat them with evidence and defeat them with their false premises, and I did that,she said.
North Korea blusters, and apparently hacks into Sony Corp. and extorts them into holding up a dumb movie that blasphemes the sacred Kim Jon Un. Guess who the conservatives are blaming for, I don’t know, America’s cowardice, or craven Jewish Hollywood, or something — anything but a badly run capitalist institution? Liberals. It’s all about the standard trope, that liberals are the ones caving before the Commie threat.
