Dalai Lama: “I Love President George Bush”

via Gateway Pundit “It is difficult to deal with terrorism through non-violence,” the Tibetan spiritual leader said. “They (terrorists) are very brilliant and educated…but a strong ill feeling is bred in them. Their minds are closed.” He said that the only way to tackle terrorism is through prevention. The head of the Tibetan government-in-exile left the …

Cool. Cooling

Tim Blair and Andrew Bolt are both ahead of me on this one, but it is worth listing anyway. James Hansen is the NASA scientist who complained loudly and incessantly about being silenced, particularly under the evil chimpybushitler regime. At the same time he got a huge amount of publicity, and some additional income, from equally …

Triumphs of Australian Science

Australian researchers have found that alcohol consumption improves male sexual performance. ‘After other risk factors were excluded, weekend drinkers, high-risk drinkers and those who exceeded alcohol-intake guidelines had lower rates of erectile dysfunction than those who drank one day a week or less. Ex-drinkers, however, had the highest risk.’ Say that again…   ‘Ex drinkers had …

Sea Kitten Cuddled

A la Tim Blair, a sea kitten being cuddled in the approved PETA fashion. The non sea kitten in the photo is Amber, granddaughter of some friends. She accompanied us on a recent sea kitten cuddling trip near American River on Kangaroo Island. A number of large King George Whiting were successfully cuddled.

What is Wrong With These People?

Yet another warning of the catastrophic consequences of global warming, based on no real world evidence at all. Despite the fact that Emperor Penguins are doing quite nicely, thank you, and there is no evidence of warming in Antarctica, and even if there were, a rise from -40 degrees to -35 degrees is not going …

‘Racist’ Shirts

The second is perhaps a natural over-reaction to unpleasant complaining about Australia, its customs and people, from some recent immigrants. But even they if are offensive, why is necessary …

Leave The Poor Old Chaps Alone

A patronising headline, but I agree. Victoria is possibly the worst run state in Australia, with chronic underfunding of essential infrastructure such as roads and water storage, a police force (sorry, service) which has been progressivley ninnified over the past several years, and ongoing financial difficulties. So in the midst of all this, to what …

What a Scummy Thing to Do

You’re called to save the life of a teenage boy suffering a seizure. You can’t, or in any case, you don’t. Then when you find out who his family is, you try to blackmail them. Allegedly.

Windschuttle, ‘Gould’ and the Quadrant ‘Hoax’

In an article on Real Clear Politics, Thomas Sowell wrote: ‘No one in his right mind would say that the Bush administration was flawless. But many of their worst political mistakes were the kinds of mistakes that decent people often make when dealing with indecent people, both domestically and internationally.’ The same could be said …
