Rants -- July 20, 2008

Welcome to the July 20, 2008 edition of Rants.

Ben Dinsmore presents Is It Finally Time to Drill in Alaska's Arctic National Wildlife Refuge (ANWR)? posted at Trees Full of Money, saying, "I am 100% in favor of drilling in ANWR, but unlike the mainstream media I am not naïve to think that it will completely solve our energy problems."

I agree that we need to take lots of different kinds of steps to ease our foreign dependence on oil. I am just not enough of an expert to say that drilling in Alaska, or anywhere else, will make more than a few dollars' difference. At $15, a few dollars means something. But at $150? Who cares?

Recoil presents Do We Really Want a President Who Lets the Press Interview his 7 and 10 Year Old Daughters?

I'd have to agree with the notion of having my kids interviewed by the press at such early ages.


Andrew Heath presents Tarot Reading for George W. Bush posted at Andy.

I hadn't thought of doing a Tarot reading...damn, could have saved a lot of time.

NotYourDaddy presents Ready or Not, A Change is Going to Come posted at Government is not your Daddy., saying, "Iran has made clear their intentions and their capabilities, and they’re sitting there smirking at us while we debate all the ways and reasons we can’t retaliate, and enumerate the innumerable paths to failure."

Indeed, a change is coming. Whether it's a positive or a negative remains to be seen.

Archvillain presents Stuff and Nonsense posted at A Dark and Sinister Force for Good.

The car-buying public IS stupid. Always have been always will be.

Deborah Armstrong presents WE'RE RAISING A BUNCH OF WIMPS!

Man, ain't it the truth?

Chris presents Inside Every Martial Artist is a Dangerous Criminal posted at Martial Development, saying, "Martial artist: are you an inherent threat to decency, morality, and public safety? No?

We, your elected government, say yes..."

It would seem that a lot of us could fall victim to the ridiculous laws passed since 2001.

Madeleine Begun Kane presents A Humorist's Lament (Covering The New Yorker Cover Brouhaha In Verse) - Updated posted at Mad Kane's Political Madness.

Jennifer Hill presents Illegal Immigrants, Republican View posted at Jennifer Hill.

A good argument against illegals.

The BoBo presents Are liberals waking up to the Obamessiah? posted at The BoBo Files, saying, "The political correctness surrounding Obama has many fearing speaking up against him. Here's a review of a post by a liberal black columnist who thinks people should think twice before voting for Obama in November."

It does seem that right about now Barack Obama is beyond reproach. If elected, however, he'll find out what criticism is.
