Inoperable Terran

Irony is the enemy of the post-modern left(tm)

Disaster relief

Tim Blair has more on those who would politicize it.

At this writing, alone has collected over $11 million. Claims of stinginess are clearly overblown.

However, just to be clear, if you haven’t given yet, you still should in spite of the large donations from others. If for some reason you’d rather not give directly to the Red Cross or one of the other organizations collecting, I’ll note that Israel’s ambulance service Magen David Adom is also collecting for the victims, so you can donate both to the earthquake victims and to help Israelis hurt in Islamic terror attacks.

As an aside, remember when Allah (link currently dead) posted stuff instead of just snarking about how superior he is to those of us that do? That was cool.

Edit: Misha and Laurence Simon get the tag-team action going.

    Everything booted right up when I got home and I’ll post some stuff in a bit. In the meantime, ESR has a worthwhile take on the Coleman meltdown and it’s relevance to the MSM at large.

    ABC decalred bloggers the people of the year and yet somehow failed to provide any substantive interviews with anyone that you think of when you think of bloggers. More on that through the magic of hyperlinks: ta da!

  • Muslims Claim Discrimination

    After being searched at the border coming back from a religious conference in Canada. CAIR is of course right there demanding an investigation, pointing out that this should be disturbing to all Americans who value religious freedom. It is, to some extent, but not being a member of a religion that has caused thousands upon thousands of deaths/executions/beheadings in the past few years alone tends to prevent me from getting fingerprinted as I return to America. So it follows, I suppose, that I am strangely comfortable with the idea of certain people being searched.

    If you missed Lileks’ post that touches on Christmas toy construction earlier in the week, do yourself a favor and go back and read it now. Where else can you find the phrase ‘horny crack-addicted howler monkey’ used to such humorous effect? There will be a quiz later. p.s. — if that phrase isn’t enough for you, how about this one? “I had the feeling I should be swindling a man out of a railroad between courses.”

    I meant to post this yesterday but didn’t have the time. Israel has developed a really cool lubricant based on spherical inorganic nanoparticles. Just another Jew plot to thwart Arab/Muslim oil interests? You decide.

  • American Idiots

    I refer, of course, to Green Day. This one’s a couple of days old but its been on my mind and probably on some of your minds as well. The idiocy of our entertainment folk on full display: voila (French word used on purpose ;)). Warning: Comic Nerd side-Rant ahead. Heck, last night I was reading about Peter David coming back to the Hulk for a six issue run that was originally to be a miniseries. He describes the run as (I paraphrase slightly), ‘Shakespeare’s the Tempest set on Monster Island, with Bruce Banner as bluestate America and the Hulk as redstate America’.

    …and the best title is the one we are linking to anyway :) The Saudi government daily Al-Watan features an article about how America is in Iraq to harvest organs to sell back in the States. Translation by MEMRI, enjoy.

    Glenn has some links that might interest you and points out that the International Committee of the Red Cross and the American Red Cross are two separate organizations. Its times like these that remind us all of how fortunate we are and that show the character of nations. The American people (not including the foreign aid amounts) have already given over ten times as much as say… the People’s Republic of France.

    Imagine if Cox & Forkum ever failed to nail it to the wall… fortunately we don’t have to ;) C & F have a nice ‘toon and some links to vids and other Tsunami info that may be of interest to you. Enjoy, and keep the survivors and the dead both in your thoughts and prayers as we approach another New Year.

  • A double-header of links to info from the PA and Arab League that explain how killing Jews is required as even the trees and rocks hate the filthy j00z (please enjoy my sarcasm). The second link details how the lack of sustained peace in the region is the fault of both America and Israel, continuing the long tradition of scapegoating and victim play that the Arab world loves oh so much.

    Hi, breaking my vacation temporarily so that anyone who didn’t already see it elsewhere knows that you can donate to the victims of the large Asian earthquake and tsunami through that link. Michele has all the links you’ll need.

  • Of course…

    I say that, but as a “parting shot” here’s Victor Davis Hanson in defense of Rumsfeld.

    Also: proof that we aren’t France.
