the week in a day
some stuff I had wanted to do posts on this week, if I wasn't so busy failing outta college:
At Unresolved References, one of the more bizarre post-election stories i've seen.
via Nerf-Coated World
, a site I hadn't seen before but is becoming a regular for me and has had several good items up over the past week, an an odd bit of computer store competition.
Rodge is talking about some guy I've never heard of
, but gives a perfect example of exactly what media bias is and why it's so sublimely irritating. Check out the before/after. See? they aren't lying
, are they?
A few articles that stick in my mind on the dead terrorist in Fallujah that the MSM is trying to flaggelate into the next prison scandal:
Steve H: so this is supporting the troops?
A letter from a Marine
at NRO that is a must read, via Ace, who has his own excellent commentary
It isn't up on his webpage, but I hear Michael Savage
, right-wing nutjob extrodiare, is considering putting together a defense fund to hire the best lawyers if the Marine goes to court, and if the UCMJ allows him to have civilian lawyers or consultants, which I think is an excellent idea.
Finally, at Beautiful Atrocities
a letter, some links, and a petition to get something done about it.
I probably shouldn't link to Ace twice in one post, but I've had this rant lying around waiting to get done for days, so it's going here too: When a student in a High School, you do not have first amendment rights
on school grounds. You have the right to sit down, shut the fuck up, and try to learn something from the government school that we pay for because your parents can't turn you into "adults" by themselves. That school is property of the state, and, much like you don't have a "right" to stage protests in my living room, you do not have a "right" to the space in that school beyond what the school says you can have. Deal with it and try to grow up a little bit. And parents, stop telling your snot-nosed pubescents that they can have whatever they want. Stupidity like this is expected from junior high students, but you're expected to inject a little reality into their lives. Assuming the parents themselves have any concept of "reality" themselves, which I am starting to doubt based on the nutjobs in that article.
