The Wizards of DC

Don't ask.

Beck's The Blaze takes a lesson from MSM

How awesome is THIS?
In his quest to create an alternative media empire, it seems as though Glenn Beck has been adopting some of the practices of the existing one. This is far from the first time I've noticed it, but I'm in the mood to pick some low-hanging fruit, today. Today's case-study is an exposé on the atheist Reason Rally currently being held in Washington, D.C.filmed for The Blaze by one .

In the video, not only does Billy attempt to highlight atheistic ire for Christianity, but to expose them as hypocrites. His production cites the Q&A section of the Reason Rally website, which states:
Are we just going to use this opportunity to trash religion?
No. This will be a positive experience...

Sunday Spin Cycle

There are two things I do every Sunday: I wash the laundry, and I watch the morning news shows. The former is necessary, but I don’t know why I subject myself to the latter. Still, like so much dirty laundry, the news on Sunday leaves much to clean up.

Random Thoughts

Snippets from other conversations:

Andrew Breitbart
(1969 - 2012)
Andrew Breitbart's passing is only really a loss to his detractors. The left lost a whipping-boy while the right gained an icon.

The liberal wants to live like there is no tomorrow, but instead lives as though there was no yesterday.

Conservatism--as opposed to progressivism--does not resist change, it only asks that it be paced and reasoned and, ultimately, developmental rather than merely different. The counter argument runs that certain issues are too pressing for that. Yet here we sit, atop 5000 years of recorded human history, unjust all of it, and still we remain to sort it all out. Patience is not only a virtue for a man, but for mankind as well.

Here is the deception of the left: it doesn't teach that the false is true, or even that impossible is possible. Rather, it teaches that the improbable is likely.

People have the growing up thing all backwards: we don't built the adult on top of the child, we strip the child off of the adult. The fact that he looks bigger underneath is what fools you.

Elegance is not determined by simplicity so much as by appropriateness.
