Fred Thompson on Twitter

May 10, 2011

I am going to have to get a Twitter account just so I can follow Fred Thompson. Get these:

Study: 50% of Afghan military illiterate. I didnt realize that our education establishment had been so involved in their training.

Boehner: cut “trillions, not just billions”. Basically he wants everything Obama wants, just with a minus sign in front of it.

Air Force Academy builds chapel for witches/warlocks/pagans. Great. Next, atheists’ll want a chapel built just for them to not go to.

At JFK airport, a drunk passenger told a ticket agent “I am bin Laden and I have a bomb”. Apparently he’s also a good swimmer.

AZ man rescued after driving off South Rim into Grand Canyon. Personally, I think he stole the idea from Obama’s budget plan

10 Senators on week-long, taxpayer-funded trip to China. Good. Now we can threaten to send the other 90 unless they buy more bonds.

Israel’s Independence Day

May 10, 2011

Today is Israel’s day of independence or Yom Ha’atzmaut. The day is celebrated on the Hebrew lunar calender, the fifth of Iyar,  so the date changes in the Gregorian calender. Anyway here’s the Israeli National Anthem.

I like Israel, even though I am not Jewish, mostly because it is the only decent country in the middle east

Trump for President, No

May 10, 2011

Here is some wonderful news. Donald Trump has declined from 26% all the way to 8% in the polls. It’s really too early to be guessing about the Republican nominee, though, and I don’t imagine that Trump’s lead would have lasted as the election year approached. Still, you never can tell.

Liberals in Southern Arizona Seek to Form New State

May 10, 2011

I think this is an excellent idea.

TUCSON, Arizona (Reuters) – A long-simmering movement by liberal stalwarts in southern Arizona to break away from the rest of the largely conservative state is at a boiling point as secession backers press to bring their longshot ambition to the forefront of Arizona politics.

A group of lawyers from the Democratic stronghold of Tucson and surrounding Pima County have launched a petition drive seeking support for a November 2012 ballot question on whether the 48th state should be divided in two.

The ultimate goal of the newly formed political action committee Start our State is to split Pima County off into what would become the nation’s 51st state, tentatively dubbed Baja Arizona.

They oppose Governor Jan Brewer’s crackdown on illegal immigration and would like to distance themselves from the rest of Arizona, which is considerably more conservative. I don’t think they are going far enough. Why not secede from the United States altogether and join with Mexico?
