I Enter Bizarro World

Uncategorized

by: Mr. Mustard

I had what I suppose amounts to an “out-of-Berkeley” experience today. This semester I’m essentially working and taking a single class to fulfill my last breadth requirement and I’m taking the class at the university through concurrent enrollment. It means I’m not registered as a student, and so only have to pay for the actual […]

Anti War, Anti-ANSWER

Uncategorized

by: Mr. Mustard

Via Tacitus (I say that a lot, don’t I? Thanks, Tac!), comes a pointer to the Daily Kos telling the ANSWER anti-war lackeys what they can go do with themselves. See, this is the stripe of person that should be organizing anti-war protests.

Fisking Uncle Noam

Uncategorized

by: Mr. Mustard

I haven’t gone through the time-honored (18 months of honor by time, in this case) tradition of the fisk in quite a while. Perhaps it’s the fact that it tends to angry up the blood, or that my stomach isn’t any longer of the iron quality needed for the appropriate invective, or that my heart […]

Fanboiosity

Uncategorized

by: Mr. Mustard

I tend to not link to other bloggers’ posts unless I have something of even only paltry original worth to add to whatever sentiments they express. After all, with daily readership numbers most likely exceeded by the combined IQ of just a couple Mensa members, there doesn’t seem to be a lot of justification for […]

Taking Freedom For Granted

Uncategorized

by: Mr. Mustard

Reader Andy writes the following in response to my experiences at the SF anti-war rally:   I was born and partially raised in the former communist paradise known as Romania (the only bloc nation ballsy enough to actually execute its dictator – along with his wife! Go us!) …   Perhaps, but an excellent digression. […]

SF Rally Numbers

Uncategorized

by: Mr. Mustard

In the WaPo today:   And demonstrators filled downtown San Francisco, with police estimating the crowd at 50,000, while organizers said it was closer to 100,000. The crowd appeared significantly larger than the one for October’s march, which police had pegged at 42,000.   That 50,000 seems about right to me. Protest organizers will alwyas […]

The Rally in SF

Uncategorized

by: Mr. Mustard

So apparently, it’s all about oil. Now, I know what you’re going to say. You’re going to trot out a bunch of exhaustive arguments about national security, nuclear weapons, a murderous dictator who’s repeatedly shown himself to be aggressive… blah, blah, blah. Yeah, but see, I was in San Francisco to see the rally today, […]

Go Get Your Stupid On!

Uncategorized

by: Mr. Mustard

So, Glenn Reynolds wants bloggers to crash the party tomorrow and divulge to the world in all their sweet, bloggy goodness what will have transpired at the big anti-war hullabaloos. I’m afraid the main D.C. march is a little out of my way, but I don’t think I could possibly say no to schlepping it […]

Say the word “Berkeley,” and what do you immediately think of? Well, this being the blogosphere, of course the first things that come to mind are violent campus protests, aggressively silly progressive politics of the most self-conscious variety, the height of PC-foolishness, and anti-Americansim in its most ashamed, rabid form. Whether you’re Glenn Reynolds, Steven […]

Riddle Me This

Uncategorized

by: Mr. Mustard

JoeUser poses an excellent question regarding vaunted International “Law”:   Your child has been injured and needs to go to the hospital . Now, imagine on top of that, there are no cops. So speeding will have no legal repercussions, your only risk is that you could potentially get in an accident. You tell this […]
