Foreign diplomacy is the purview of the Executive Branch . The gaggle of Representatives - Democrat and Republican alike - who went to Syria to try their hand at diplomacy need to be taught that they are not above the law.

Allowing this breach of the Separation of Powers to go unanswered will seriously erode the rule of law in this country.

I demand that the Attorney General bring charges against the following people for willful violation of the Logan Act:

Keith Ellison of Minnesota

1529. The Siege of Vienna. Islam, under the flag of Suliman the Magnificent. reached the end of its westward push into Europe, largely due to the fact that heavy rains prevented Suliman from bringing along his heavy artillery, but also due to the willingness of the Viennese to fight to the death to preserve their culture, their city, and their way of life.

2006. The Infiltration of Europe. Millions of Muslims have emmigrated to various points in Europe, taking their culture and religion with...

The recent over-reaction of a certain vocal subset of Muslims against some fairly tame cartoons printed in some European newspapers seems to reveal an underlying lack of security in the truth of their own religion. Could it be that the Immams, in teaching hatred and violence have failed to teach doctrine or reason? Could it be that the fundamentals of Islam are being so ignored by those who should be teaching the new generation that the youth have no real idea of what true Islam is, and instead ...

Here's what the Wall Street Journal printed in their Opinion Journal section last summer:

I find this idea fascinating... makes sense that you have a harder time at the polls if you've been killing off your voters.

As noted on the Drudgereport, the Suntimes Link has an article detailing how locatecell.com will dupe the phone company into sending them phone records, then turn around and sell them to whoever is willing to shell out some cash. Great for Private Eyes and jealous spouses, but TERRIBLE for personal privacy. How can this possibly not be illegal?

Talk radio commentator Dennis Prager states often that downloading music is the same as stealing, and I'll grant that on the surface it does seem like it. Particularly to the artists who generated the original soundwaves. But consider the following:

I have a neighbor. He just went to the store and bought a brand new widget. It's a really cool widget, and it's manufacturer has the appropriate patent.

My neighbor invites me over admire his new widget. I bring my tape measure, my calipers, m...

I'll give you my theory on how the Creator designed our universe.

First a little background... I know most of you are familiar with Schroedinger's Cat Link, the basic concept of which is that if an independent system remains unobserved by humans, then all possible quantum states co-exist in superposition.

Now take a fresh new universe created with this amazing rule. No observers => every quantum possiblity happens, an uncountably infinite number of parallel universes existing together in a...

Yes, folks, Sadam has duped Santa Claus, and is on the verge of being toward the TOP of Santa's 'Nice' list.

Santas Naughty or Nice List

Whether senility is setting in, or Santa's just delegating Naughty/Nice list authority to a wayward Elf we're not sure. But there are some big bloopers in there. Osama Bin Laden appears on the 'Nice' list as well. Heck, even Satan Himself is on there.

What is this world coming to?

I'm listening to the Democrat rebuttal to the President's speech at the Anapolis Naval Academy this morning. My impression of Senators Reed and Kerry's rebuttals is that they were written before the President's speech was given. Reed's comments in particular were incredibly vague and could have been a complaint about any potential Presidential speech. And you could really see his makeup line, which is sort of funny.
I am so tired of hearing Kerry's whiny voice. His rhetoric is so old, so tire...

When Saddam is unruly in court, why not beat him? The judge could order him beaten in public on the spot for breaking court rules, being disrespectful of the judge, or whatever. This would have several good effects. First, it would help the Shia who still fear him to see him publicly humiliated and begging for mercy. Second, it would help the Sunni, who still think he's the President to see him publicly humiliated and begging for mercy. Third, it would send the western media in to apoplexy, whi...

Is it time for open source Printer OS? Or how would that work?

I know a guy (not me, I promise) who married an ugly woman. Not sure exactly how she bagged him, but she's really stunningly ugly. She's one of those women that catches your eye much in the same way a traffic accident would. Yeah. Like that.
Now you would think, being not pretty, that the woman would try to make up for it in other areas, say, like by being nice. Or by being industrious. But no. She treats him like crap. She does no housework, doesn't contribute, continually makes him late to w...
