The Iditarod On 12,000 Calories A Day

January 21, 2014 by

0

Battle Dawgs Racing, Alaska’s Healing Hearts and Iditarod benefit wounded warriors By Paul Driessen ~ This winter’s record Midwestern freeze made any outdoor activity a real challenge. It also made us appreciate modern housing, heating, transportation and hydrocarbons – and what our frontline troops have endured in the Aleutians, Korea and Afghanistan. I’ve been in […]

Bondage Dolls And Green Weenies

January 6, 2014 by

0

By Tom McLaughlin ~ This year I took down the Christmas tree. Usually it’s my wife who decides the season is over and it’s time to move on into the less charming part of our long, New England winter. Granddaughters Claire and Lila were against taking it down, however, and I had to deal with […]

The Gifts Of Jahi

January 2, 2014 by

0

By Michelle Malkin ~ New Year’s Day should be a time of fresh beginnings and forward motion. But for the family of 13-year-old Jahi McMath, (pictured) the holiday season has been suspended in a cloud of unfathomable pain and suffering: A routine tonsillectomy gone wrong. A beautiful child declared “brain dead.” Lawyers, TV cameras, tears. […]

Merry Kwanzaa Or Whatever

December 30, 2013 by

1

By Dave the Sage ~ And I have been waiting all year to post this picture… If you didn’t know better you might think that the word Christmas was the dirtiest of dirty words and one not worthy of being uttered in public. Salvation Army bell ringers with their red kettles, Christmas carols, colored lights […]

Music, Movies, And Me

April 6, 2013 by

0

By Edward Cline ~ I chanced upon an essay by Jeff Britting, “Romantic Music: Dead or Alive?” on the American Renaissance weblog and was slightly astounded to learn that it was written in the same year as my Social Critic essay, “Why the Music Died,” penned in the summer of 1997, and republished on Rule […]

Finding Balance

April 3, 2013 by

0

By Tom McLaughlin ~ There are ways of knowing beyond the logical and empirical. We can know things in our hearts with certainty. Most of you probably understand this already, but I’m just getting used to it, having overused my brain and underused my heart for most of my sixty-two years. I’m striving for more […]

Milestones – TonyfromOz – 2008 To 2013

March 16, 2013 by

8

By TonyfromOz ~ The 16th March marks five years that I have been contributing here at PA Pundits International. What got me started here in the first place is interesting in itself. I had been connected to the Internet since 2003, a basic dial up connection, but it wasn’t until after the advent of Broadband […]

Rockhampton Flood Redux – 2013

February 1, 2013 by

0

While the rest of most of Australia’s Eastern seaboard is recovering from, and cleaning up after the major flood following the huge rain event I mentioned in this earlier Post, the flood peak here in Rockhampton doesn’t arrive until later tonight (Friday) or early tomorrow morning. Unlike last time in January 2011, when the Fitzroy […]

Blacks Should Embrace NRA Gun Proposal

January 6, 2013 by

0

By Star Parker ~ What is the essence of freedom? Property and a gun. I never met my grandfather, but that’s the lesson I took from his life. He was one generation out of slavery and bought property and guns. It’s so predictable that today’s discussion on gun control is similar to the noise we […]

An Opinion On Gun Control

January 3, 2013 by

0

By Larry Correia ~ I was sent an email yesterday from my good friend in Stockton CA with the text of this article. While it is quite long, this is without fraction of a doubt the best article I have read in the days following this awful tragedy in Newtown Connecticut. This is written by […]

Burying Ted

December 22, 2012 by

0

By Tom McLaughlin ~ We buried my 90-year-old father-in-law, Ted Kosiavelon, last week at Arlington National Cemetery. That’s what he wanted. He earned the privilege by serving in both the Solomon Islands and in the Philippines during World War II. Like millions of other young men of his generation, he fought for his country against […]

75 Years of Age

October 9, 2012 by

0

By Alan Caruba ~ With a birth date of October 9, 1937, I tell people that I was born in the midst of the Great Depression and have lived long enough to be in another one. There are other similarities because, as oft been noted, history does repeat itself. Only the faces, names and places […]

A Human Being

February 10, 2012 by

0

By Tom McLaughlin ~ “How do you like retirement?” is a question I hear often. I don’t teach anymore, but I’m still working two part-time jobs. Writing this is one of them. The other demands less of me in winter, and I usually answer that I like retirement very well. Mostly, I like that I […]

Christmas and Old Age

December 16, 2011 by

0

By Alan Caruba The older I get, the less I like Christmas. It’s definitely an age thing. I have sweet memories of waking early on Christmas day, tip-toeing passed my parent’s and older brother’s bedrooms, and down the stairs to see what bounty awaited in front of the fireplace. There were separate stockings, jammed with […]

Marilyn Monroe and Me

August 5, 2011 by

0

By Alan Caruba On August 5, 1962, Marilyn Monroe was found dead in her Los Angeles home, an empty bottle of sleeping pills by her bed. She had become what she has aspired to be, a movie star. I doubt she ever conceived that she would become a cultural icon, the embodiment of sensuality, glamour, […]

If I Were Dictator (Part 31)

By Marlin6 On 02/05/2008, I authored a post “Benevolent Dictators Make Good Government”. Examples are King David – Israel – (1010 BC –970 B.C.) in ancient times and General Douglas McArthur – Japan – (1945 –1947) in modern times. I started musing about what I would do if I were absolute dictator of the United […]
