Might Be Time for a New Strategy

I’ll be the first to note the irony in the fact that an episode of “It’s Ok to Be Smart” says something as colossally stupid as “the number 1 septillion is so big that it doesn’t make sense”.

A Threat to National Security

Sunday, March 29, 2015 12:00 pm

New research by the Nielsen ratings company shows that people are now watching less TV and more streaming internet video.

Saturday, March 28, 2015 8:00 pm

Astronomers now say that the galaxy we live in is actually 50% larger than originally thought.

Just waiting for some environmentalist to claim it’s due to expansion from galactic warming.

What’s the Real Origin of “OK”?

I found the answer bizarre, but then again, I can’t fathom how Cockney Rhyming Slang exists, either.

Burned

Coloradans reported seeing a “green fireball” soar across the sky before it burned out over the mountains.

Huh. Pretty good metaphor for an Obama-backed solar company.

The Hobbit Movie You Only Watched for Closure

Friday, March 27, 2015 9:00 pm

If you actually revered the Hobbit trilogy, don’t watch this, it’s quite disrespectful.

If you resent what Peter Jackson’s inexcusable padding did to a good story, this is for you.

The Secret Service is testing drone-jamming technology to keep unmanned aircraft from getting near the White House.

Unpredictable

Friday, March 27, 2015 4:00 pm

Republican lawmakers warned the leaders of Iran that any nuclear deal they cut with President Obama could expire the day he leaves office.

That’s ridiculous. He’s never had a promise last that long.

Friday, March 27, 2015 8:00 am

Students at the University of California Irvine voted to remove an American flag in their lobby, fearing it might “trigger” illegals to feel offended.

So… we don’t actually need a border fence, just flagpoles?
