Horrible – Up to 500,000 dead in Haiti

January 14, 2010

That is like 6% of Haiti’s total population. It would be as if two NYCs worth of people died this second in the US.

The devastation is so great that aid agencies are having a hard time coping.

George Clooney in on of the few acts of his that I approve of is planning on hosting a telethon to help raise funds to help the Haitians.

Meanwhile Pat Robertson engages in his usual idiocy. Pat take a clue pill and STFU. (Little Miss Attila agrees)

A Conservative Lesbian will be covering Sarah Palin for Newsreal –

I also expect my coverage of Gov. Palin will be about explaining her “common sense conservatism” to help people understand how much more it can do for them than the elitist, statist totalitarianism of the Left, however much they sneer at the talents of a woman who has risen high in politics and become a multi-millionaire by dint of her own efforts while they worship a man who thinks money comes from rich people rather than creativity and the incentive of getting to keep the fruits of one’s labor.

A green sea slug appears to be part animal, part plant. It’s the first critter discovered to produce the plant pigment chlorophyll.

The sneaky slugs seem to have stolen the genes that enable this skill from algae that they’ve eaten. With their contraband genes, the slugs can carry out photosynthesis — the process plants use to convert sunlight into energy.


Gingrich: I’m a top-tier contender for the 2012 nomination
– Not a chance Newt. I’d sooner vote for Obama (or worse Biden) than your weaselly ass. I say that as someone who voted for McCain.

John Yoo vs Jon Stewart
Talked about this yesterday but Instapundit has the video. Personally I don’t think Stewart came out that badly. I though Woo came out way to lawyerly. What would be wrong with just saying – “The Treaty against torture and US law did not specifically define what constituted torture. Congress used weasel words to avoid having to do so. In the Law Torture is defined as causing severe permanent physical or mental harm. After 9/11 we were face with the defining how aggressive we could be without breaking that barrier.”

talking about spectrums of power, etc. sounds like the same sort of reasoning that brought about Roe vs. Wade.
