A Reality for the Reality-based World

NYT to cut paper size and close plant - Reuters.com

Now it will fit better in my bird's cage.

Hopefully they'll make the paper even smaller, softer, gentler and put it on rolls for a more appropriate use.

The Enlightened Left

Just found a link over at LGF that once again blesses us all with the profound wisdom of Daily Kos and the Left in general:

Imagine A World Without Israel

I made the mistake of actually going to the site and reading the comments. If I hadn't just gotten out of the shower I'd go back and get exact quotes. The general flow of 'discussion' is that Israel has no claim to the Roman province of Palestine. Mostly it is along the lines of the Jewish homeland should have been in Europe. Stuff you'd hear in any speech from Iran's Ahmaneedahandjob.

All in all I keep thinking that this is the result of an educational system that has taught to the lowest common denominator for 40 years. I was subjecting myself to a Daily Dumb Down.

One enlightened commentor informs us that before 1948 there was never an Israel in the region. That made me think that those Jews are very clever people; I mean how in the hell did they manage to slip that Jewish temple foundation underneath that muslim mosque after 1948?

They Can't Handle The Truth

Speaking Truth To Power

Happy Birthday America

"We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness.

That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed."
