May you be comforted with all mourners, and may your father's memory be for a blessing.

Thanks for the link. My son LOVES the videos. His preschool teacher thought they were good also.
Given the "bird's eye" view of Pennsylvania Avenue and another of the Mall that I saw on another blog, it is certainly reasonable to say that the number of people there was well into six figures, if not over 1 million. Members of Congress and the Obama Administration ignore these figures at their peril. The only reason I would not say that our leftist friends think denial is a river in Egypt is because I have little confidence that many of them can find Egypt on a map.
Never forget! It seems like in every generation, we have evil, as well as those who willingly forget the last evil.

Somehow I don't think it was a problem that Doug Wilder took some pretty hard left views in his younger days, but everyone accepted his self-announced "moderation." Ditto for Bill Clinton. Obama's top science advisor, John Holdren, has advocated government-imposed birth control in the name of environmental protection, and that was after he got his Ph.D.! You don't hear complaints from the left about that kind of stuff, do you? As far as what McDonnell actually wrote, I have not read the actual text, but my feeling is that it is being blown out of proportion. And yes, you are right, it is a distraction by a campaign that is afraid to advertise its position on issues that really matter to the voters. We should note is that McDonnell at this point has a record of service as a Delegate as well as Attorney General. If he were a blank slate all this might be a little more relevant, but it isn't. The other point about the leftists who cry "hate," and we've all seen this time and time again, is that they really hate themselves and constantly project onto others. Aren't we all shocked, SHOCKED!

"Creimitu" sounds like the name of an Italian dessert. Any ideas for the recipe?

The better way to look at this would be the whole salary plus benefits package. This can vary in buying power depending on the cost of living in a particular locality. In addition, benefits are often "back loaded," e.g., the employer may grant more vacation time per year after a number of years of service. Just some food for thought.

Exactly what do you really expect? Remember that his good buddy is Bill Ayers, who is famous for calling the police "racist." Can't imagine that Saul Alinsky liked decent police officers, either.
No tax pledge? How about a tax CUT pledge! OK, a cynical person would note that Mark Warner made a pledge not to raise taxes, also. You were referring to Warner of course, weren't you, NoVA Scout? ;) I don't necessarily view a no tax pledge as dishonest or incompetent. It's just that the candidate should have a very good plan for carrying it out and think that it is realistically possible. The problem is that with the State Senate being in Dem hands and the HOD having a narrow GOP majority, anything can happen. Well, anything except a tax cut. Not enough left-wing causes can be de-funded, either. Given how many times Creigh Deeds has voted for tax hikes, though, he should state realistically what taxes he wants to raise and why.
Obama can't tax them . . . YET (maybe the recipient). If we had another child there would be three kids and a dead dad!

Don't quilt too many of these things or else Obama is going to tax it all away! Seriously, that is beautiful work. Thanks for sharing.

It was interesting to read the fanciest excuses why even a study should not be done. Something about the path of a hurricane that went over the area (even though other uranium mining areas have been in the paths of tornadoes with no environmental detriment). I'll have to e-mail you a similar news item on the subject.

There is no question that if a conservative made a remark like that he would be fired on the spot. Maybe Fox News needs to find a replacement for Colmes? Actually, I wonder what Hannity has to say about his colleague's remarks?

Interesting case. It really boils down to contract law, and who had what in writing when the contract(s) was (were) signed. I also question this because I seriously doubt the chicken sold by Church's Fried Chicken meets halal standards. I mean, if the Islamic financiers are that concerned about unclean food, why don't they make the whole chain subject to Muslim dietary laws? I'm not a lawyer or an expert in Muslim dietary laws, but form the point of view of Jewish laws, I'm guessing that halal requires more than grabbing a chicken, slaughtering, and serving.

Ah, yes, dhimmi Jimmy Carter, the man who made me a Republican. Kat, thanks for standing up for what is right, and GM Roper, thanks for your factual overview. Also, thanks to the rest of you who understand the facts as they are and who commented. Admittedly, I do have my own axe to grind here, as my mother is Israeli, and I have a lot of family over there. it is a beautiful country, a technological innovator, and one of the best allies of the United States. I think no other country has supported us as much in U.n> votes, for example. During the Vietnam War, the Israelis stole Soviet missile signals from the Egyptians, and this help save the lives of many American pilots. As far as commenter "Barbara" is concerned, I am not going to launch into any accusations of prejudice or bigotry. However, I will say that Barbara certainly needs to balance her previous suppositions with historical facts. Clearly, Hamas and the PA are hostile entities, and keep in writing the destruction of Israel among their goals. These organizations would not hesitate to kill American citizens. Even if Israel were not there, they would still be hostile to the United States, our allies, and all that we stand for. The Israelis also tried to give a lot of commercial help to the Arabs in Gaza ad Samaria. However, Arafat and his gang of criminals rejected this help. He just stuffed his own pockets with foreign aid (i.e., our tax dollars). I just saw a Joseph Farah article today in which he quotes the PA "Ambassador" to Lebanon. This guy says (in Arabic, of course), that getting their independent state is only a step in a process of wiping out the Jewish entity.

My father, being the careful chemist that he is, let it carbonate naturally and then bottled them. This was back in the 1970s, so the selection of craft beer bottles wasn't as good. I think he used a lot of Heineken and Becks bottles. He never had one explode, fortunately. Capping was always a pain. It looked easy, but it was a wing-shaped capper that easily caused the necks of bottles to snap. We always lost a couple of bottles to the process (better than explosions, I guess). I noticed your next post is a religious song that mentioned coffee. Is that a deliberate juxtaposition with beer? ;)

My father used to make his own beer. Then they made it legal so he stopped. ;) Capping the bottles is a lot of fun. Do you have a device that helps you do it easily? When I was in high school, my English teacher wanted the class to do a non-fiction book report, and to discuss the subject, not just the book. So I found a book on beer-making and discussed the subject. The boys in the class LOVED it, but I could tell the teacher was just a bit ticked. She gave me a "B" and said my talk had too much "how to" in it.
