Second - I've seen this linked by quite a few folks, so let me get in on the linky action here. Peggy Noonan is jealous.
You're Peggy Noonan and you're jealous. You do stuff, too -- and yet all you hear is Sarah, Sarah, Sarah. Don't they read your columns, don't they understand that she's "dropping her G's," that she is "faux down-home, patronizing-and infantilizing"? You have ten, maybe a hundred times the vocabulary she has, and yet they're talking about her. Don't you read my columns, people!? She is a "dope and unqualified," representative of "a new vulgarization" and still, they talk about her.
Now here's my little qualifier for anyone who wants to tell me what the
Quote of the day: Anything that requires the labor of someone else cannot be a universal human right.
Damn skippy. And now I'm off. I'll see you all later, probably around Wednesday.

I hate Vista.
So anyways, while the Mrs. might be posting a bit, I will not be until next week. But that's why I have the blogroll, right?
As an aside, if there's any folks who used to post here, who would still like the ability to do so, speak up in the comments. I'm about to go through all the people who have permissions and start deleting anyone who hasn't posted in a while.

Stokes County sheriff's deputies arrested the president of the local NAACP chapter on child sex and firearms charges Monday.
CBS affiliate WFMY reports that Larry Lash, 54, of Walnut Cove, was charged with six counts of statutory rape and two counts of sex offense and first-degree sex offense, among other sex charges.
Sheriff Mike Joyce told WFMY that there were three victims, including two under 16-years-old and that the alleged sex acts took place at Lash's home over a period of time.Investigators found five guns and ammunition at Lash's house when they arrested him, leading to a charge of possession of a firearm by a felon. According to state Department of Correction records, Lash was convicted of involuntary manslaughter in 1974 and assault by pointing a gun and discharging a firearm into property in 1978.
I'm not going to hold a guy accountable for a crime he committed and did jail time for twenty years ago, but it does call into question his mental status. And the fact that the media doesn't seem to want to report on this story means that there's a political angle to it.
Now add on the fact that the NAACP is one of the most partisan, plantation-guarding groups out there, and that they always, ALWAYS go for the Democrat.... there shouldn't be any doubt as to why the media doesn't want to carry the story.

SpanishCatalan newspaper is reporting that Honduran authorities have seized computers found in the Presidential Palace belonging to deposed president Mel Zelaya. Taking a page right out of the leftist dictator's handbook, these computers, according to the news report, contained the official and certified results of the illegal constitutional referendum Zelaya wanted to conduct that never took place. The results of this fraudulent vote was tilted heavily in Zelaya's favor, ensuring he could go ahead and illegally change the constitution so he could remain in power for as long as he wanted to.
Huh, imagine that. The results of an election that never took place were found on the dictator-wanna-be's computer. Gosh, I wonder why? And thank god Honduras kicked that bastard out before he could play his endgame. And no, I'm not surprised that Obama supported Zelaya - they're of the same mindset.

My wife's employer just sent her a letter announcing that, as of August 1st ...You need to just write it down, because the communists, idiots, and Democrats (multiple redundancy alert) will deny that they ever, EVER meant for this to happen.
- Employee retirement funds will be frozen
- Funds will no longer accrue
- And this little bombshell
They will reap what they sow.
