Expert: Meteor Shower, Asteroid Passing All a Coincidence

Feb 15, 2013 12:02 PM PT

CNN just had an astronomer on who said that the incredible meteor shower of explosions that hit Russia today and the asteroid that just missed us by thismuch, was all a coincidence; that one has absolutely nothing to with the other.

Now, I'm not an End Times kind of guy, and what happened today in no way changes that, but what are the odds of two once-in-a-lifetime space events occurring within hours of one another? If someone actually did the math, I'd bet its in the billion-billions (if that's a real measurement -- but you know what I mean).

Occupy Harvard Replaced with Beer Bottle Snow Fort

Feb 12, 2013 9:30 AM PT

Occupy Harvard, like the rest of the Occupy movement, came and went abruptly. For a few months it turned Harvard Yard into a squatters camp until one particularly windy day last January when it all came down. This winter the former Occupy camp has been replaced with something less ugly, less pretentious and I would argue more representative of the 99%: A beer bottle snow fort.

Beer bottle snow fort!

Medal of Honor: Staff Sgt. Romesha

Feb 11, 2013 4:55 PM PT

Reading the story of how Army Staff Sgt. Clinton Romesha became the fourth living Medal of Honor recipient from the War on Terror is a bracing reminder that the spirit of valor which won our independence, and threw down the Axis, is still alive and well.  Romesha on the injuries he suffered that terrible day: "I've had buddies that have lost eyesight and lost limbs.  I would rather give them all the credit they deserve for sacrificing so much.  For me it was nothing, really.  I got a little peppered, that was it."

Politicians are talking about downsizing the military, but the military remains great.  It's the politicians who got small.

SHOCK: Big Corporation Listens to Consumers Without Government Intervention!

I often wonder if my mother has ever read any of the posts on the thousands of Mommyblogs out there.  With germs and supposedly unsafe products around every corner, you'd think the only way to keep your kid alive is in a bubble.

Over at the IWF blog, Julie Gunlock wrote about the hysterics surrounding unit-dose laundry packs, like Tide Pods.  My first thought, "Is this a new way to get high?  Is that what the kids are doing these days?"

Who's Going to a 2nd Amendment Rally, Tomorrow?

Feb 7, 2013 10:49 AM PT

On January 19, thousands of Americans from every state rallied at their state capitols to show support for the 2nd Amendment and send a message to Congress. Following the pattern we saw during the birth of the tea party (circa Feb/March 2009), local media covered some of these rallies, but they were given short shrift in the national media. So now it’s time for  round two.

2nd Amendment rallies will be taking place in every U.S. state capitol city on Friday, February 8, 2013 at 10:00 a.m.
