Rants -- June 29, 2008

Welcome to the June 29, 2008 edition of Rants.  

Alvaro Fernandez presents Why Smart Brains Make Stupid Decisions posted at SharpBrains: Your Window into the Brain Fitness Revolution, saying, "We just secured an interview with Ori Brafman, co-author of Sway: The Irresistible Pull of Irrational Behavior (Doubleday Business, 2008), to discuss our Dark Side (well, he calls it "different hidden forces" and "psychological undercurrents")." 

Michael Bass presents Bobby Jindal and Corruption Eradication for Louisiana posted at Debt Prison, saying, "Since I’m back in the swamp state of Louisiana I get a daily dose of Bobby Jindal and LA politics effecting the Baton Rouge and New Orleans area."  

Fruitpunch presents A relationship to last a lifetime posted at Fruit Punch Diary.  

The BoBo presents Obama Lied and his Sheep Cried posted at The BoBo Files, saying, "Obama denies his past as well as his associations with radicals. This discussion brings them to light in Obama's own words."  

muse presents Sung To The Tune Of... posted at Shiloh Musings.  

Ethan presents Never Clever Whatsoever: Another Rant about Georgia's CRCT Scores posted at Never Clever Whatsoever, saying, "Sorry, I'm new to this. This is my rant about Georgia's CRCT scores if you know anything about it. If you don't, the Atlanta Journal Constitution will have tons of articles about it."  

Archvillain presents The Unbearable Green-ness of Being posted at A Dark and Sinister Force for Good, saying, ""Green" is just a color"  

NotYourDaddy presents Conservatives, Take Back Your Party! posted at Government is not your Daddy., saying, "The latest Rasmussen survey reports that 62% of voters would prefer fewer government services with lower taxes. 29% would rather have more government services with higher taxes, and 10% are not sure. Apparently, despite the fears of the current Republican leadership, the majority of American voters agree with core conservative principles." 

NotYourDaddy presents Greenology is a Bankrupt Philosophy posted at Government is not your Daddy., saying, "The great green movement driven by the Sierra Club, the Audobon Society, and other more nefarious forces appears about to run out of gas. A half century of a reckless orgy of economic extravagance driven by environmental values is finally coming home to roost. We are about to discover that you cannot protect anything if you are broke."  

DWSUWF presents Through the looking glass with Obama, McCain, the Constitution, and FISA. posted at Divided We Stand United We Fall, saying, "Between the sitting President and the two candidates to replace him, all believe in expanding the power of the executive branch, even to the point of overruling the protections of the Bill of Rights as they see fit. All three - Bush, McCain, Obama. Actions speak louder than words, and when the rubber meets the road on real bills like the compromise FISA bill, there is no qualitative difference on their views of the unitary executive, regardless of what they say to gullible supporters."  

Ocean presents Drilling Me Softly | posted at  

Neil Benson presents Shocking Secrets of Liberals Exposed posted at SENSE AND NONSENSE, saying, "For several weeks I have been receiving e-mail after e-mail from the Human Events Book Service, which publishes ultraconservative books and other materials. I hesitate to disenroll from these e-mails because the book titles and descriptions are so entertaining and informative. I had never realized the true nature of liberals before reading this information. Mostly the titles and descriptions speak for themselves, but I have taken the liberty of adding a comment after each one."  

Middle Class Sweetheart presents July 1 is Day One for student loans posted at Middle Class Sweetheart. 

Michael Snyder presents The Los Lunas Decalogue Stone - How In The World Did The Ten Commandments Get To America Before Columbus Did? posted at Shattered Paradigm.
