As I’ve noted before, I’m sure the Democrats would love to own the major media to censor any opposing viewpoints. However, they don’t really need to buy any of the major media because the folks running them already censor, pummel and/or exclude any opinion other than the left wing’s (Fox being the only major media exception). That […]
Did Ahnold really mean it? Read this and judge for yourself!
France, the model upon which Obama is reshaping America into mediocracy and public obeisance to government, has already decided that its print media are ailing and needing of a bailout, so the government is injecting millions of Euros into the industry’s advertising pages. Poor print media. Hit on one flank by the cyber-reality of free competition and the […]
I stumbled upon a blog called zippitydodah and further titled/subtitled "Reflections in a Petri Dish: As the Landfill Burbles with the Toxic Wastes of a Disintegrating Culture, I’ll Be the Voiceover" that proved both interesting and perceptive–and refreshingly written. No byline accompanied the article, but it was written in the first person. The commentators seemed […]
I’d pick dude and awesome as the most annoying words used in conversation (most meaningless too), but a recent Marist poll shows that whatever is the most hated word. For full results by age, region and education, view the chart.
I’m not sure who the announcer was yesterday during the simulated Marine attack (replete with explosives) during the annual Miramar Air Show, but he was definitely in combat mode.

Frugalista is a term that came about in response to our currently challenged and challenging economy. In fact, it’s widely used by bloggers, but now comes word from TechDirt that one blogger has sought to trademark the word (long after its initial invention) and her lawyer is sending other bloggers who use Frugalista letters to […]
Leave it to the government and its worshipping at the altar or George Orwell DoubleSpeak to come up with this one. After Judge Joan Lefkow ordered a new trial for four convicted drug traffickers when she determined a government witness had lied, federal prosecutors have asked her to reconsider since the witness’s testimony was actually […]
Michael Masnick of TechDirt.com has been blogging on and off about how the use of text speak (txt spk) on Twitter and other social media outlets is actually improving young Americans’ writing and use of English. He further maintains that, for the most part, the txt spk generation knows when to write Twitterlish and when […]
The Japanese, as shown in my last post, have developed ingenious ways of using English properly to mask their true intention (recruiting for the Self-Defense Forces). In China, however, authorities are worried about their public displays of English translations (example shown), especially since the world came to the Forbidden City for the 2008 Olympics. The […]
