Relevance through pestilance?

Is Europe being annoying just to try and stave off their own irrelevance? Could be.

  • Some random tuneups

    I’ve managed to fix most of the “damage” inflicted by merging the template with Movable Type’s default now. The double-spaced posts are gone, the header on the calendar now looks like it belongs to this site, and the funky not-quite-black text color that made things a bit harder to read is gone. If the site is suddenly horribly broken for you, please let me know. Otherwise, this will be it until I get someone who knows what they’re doing to make a proper design 🙂

  • Is it Sting’s line yet?

    Anna says the reason American culture is irresistable to the world is that we ARE the world. Well stated, and quite true.

  • Facts: the anti-liberal

    In 1980, the top tax rate was 70%. In 1990, it was 28%. In 1990, revenue to the Federal Government was more than double what it was in 1980, and the top brackets were paying a larger percentage of the total.

    Now then, here’s a great interview with Steve Moore from the Club for Growth, who have had great success mowing down liberals, RINOs, feminists, and others who will run shrieking upon reading my first paragraph.

  • A spelling bee?

    A school in Canada removed the word ‘gun’ from spelling tests following complaints by hippy parents. The comedy writes itself on this one, doesn’t it?

  • Dogs and cats

    In response to the Franco-Kraut whining, Greece has taken Turkey’s side, something most thought could never happen. It’s sorta touching to see everyone uniting against France.
