Weekend Wrap-Up

I'm trying to blog less and enjoy life more, so here are some links to good stuff...

Reason Mag:  Where's Muhammad?
Our dhimmi press is pissing down it's collective leg and voluntarily submitting to angry Islam.  Go read the Reason article that details the weak excuses newpaper editors gave for not running this cartoon.

Moonbattery - Obama Vacation Photos
These pics are funny.  Go check them out! 

MSNBC "Brand Insanity"
The website is trying to shake the nuts off of its tree.  It no longer want to be associated with the leftwing wackadoos at the cable channel MSNBC...
The television channel has carved a space out for itself in the network news wars by moving further and further to left-leaning content, such as the Keith Olbermann and Rachel Maddow shows.

The Web site wants to be a strictly objective news site without the liberal bent of the channel. Already, the two groups are separate companies and now they want separate names.

Paul Krugman, Partisan Hack
Lefty gargoyle Paul Krugman caught lying again...
In his Monday “Hey Small Spender” column, New York Times columnist Paul Krugman bizarrely denied that federal spending has significantly expanded over the past two years. 

Yet for his talk about a “fact-free” disinformation campaign, Krugman curiously provides no data on total federal spending. 
This is classic fact-free Krugman, just the way his economically ignorant liberal fanboys and fangirls like him.  The Heritage Foundation sets him straight, using the White House's own numbers:
According to President Obama’s own Office of Management and Budget—the keepers of the official data on government spending—federal spending has just finished its largest two-year surge in nearly 60 years, leaping from 20.7 percent of the economy to 25.4 percent (see Table 1.2 here), the highest spending level in American history outside of World War II.Overall, Washington is spending 23 percent more today than it did two years ago.

China's Pipelineistan
Lefties worldwide scream "No blood for oil!"  Like most tropes, there is a grain of truth.  Central Asia holds mineral and energy wealth, and like everybody else, we want a piece of it.   This article does a pretty good job summing it all up.

SF, I too am trying to enjoy life more by blogging less. The current state of affairs makes me so angry at times, I feel that the only way to be happy is to be "clueless" and uninformed like the left!

I can tell you that blogging less has actually helped, but to be honest, I still cannot let go and become uninformed!

By the way, I am very interested in what happens with MSNBC.COM. I desperately would like to find a neutral news site that I can get information from!

Good luck in your search for happiness!

Good roundup, and I hope you are having a fantastic weekend!

That article from Reason Magazine is a real gem!

As for blogging, well, I've been forced into less blogging because of Mr. AOW's medical condition. But I still manage to spend some time reading on the web.

Blogging less and enjoying life more!

I hear that. Soon to start. :)

I wish you luck in your quest. Isn't it odd that we started blogging because we loved doing it. Now...well it can become drudgery if we let it.

Interesting round-up. I'm off to read.

Try limiting your posts to one per week, that frees up the time like you wouldn't believe, but yet still allows you to rant and rave on your favorite topic that has driven you to drink that week...

Just a thought.

Good advice, Fredd, but I don't think I could fit all my ranting and raving into one post per week.
