Bay Ridge Fire

Posted on 30 July 2009 by Ed Z

A
fire decimated a four story building in Bay Ride last night
.  I passed
the scene on the way to work and it didn’t look good.  Thankfully, nobody
was seriously injured.

Twelve firefighters were hurt in an
overnight fire in Bay Ridge, Brooklyn.

A massive fire ripped through a four-story
building at 6805 Third Avenue. Several stores and residences were destroyed.

Fire officials are looking into the
possibility the fire started in a ground floor deli.

Along with the firefighters, two residents
suffered minor injuries.

Quote of the Day

Posted on 29 July 2009 by Ed Z

Purging
humankind of its supposed sins of environmental degradation has become a
religion with a fanatical and often intolerant priesthood, especially among
the First World urban elites.

This quote resonates with me since I’ve become to believe, as party of the
Godless, the left tries to fill the spiritual void by worshiping the gods of
Global Warming.

The Ultimate Rubber Chicken

The Ultimate Rubber Chicken

Classic.  You
can’t get a better rubber chicken than this
.

Facing the first real rough patch of his presidency, President Obama and his
supporters are once again resorting to a tried-and-true tactic: attacking George
W. Bush and Dick Cheney.

In his White House press conference last week, Mr. Obama referred to the Bush
era at least nine times, three times lamenting that he "inherited" a
$1.3 trillion debt that has set back his administration’s efforts to fix the
economy.

With the former president lying low in Dallas, largely focused on crafting
his memoirs, Mr. Obama has increasingly attempted to exploit Mr. Bush when
discussing the weak economy, the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan and the difficulty
closing the military prison at U.S. Naval Base Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.

As he took power, Mr. Obama promised a "new era of responsibility"
that would transcend partisan politics.

"For a guy who campaigned on taking responsibility and looking forward,
he spends an awful lot of time pointing fingers and looking backward," said
former Bush deputy press secretary Tony Fratto, who has begun defending the
previous administration.

But the money quote comes from Democrat strategist Liz Chadderdon:

Voters have short memories. The administration needs to remind people that
things were way worse over the last four years than in the last six months.

You hear that voters, you have short memories and you need to be reminded of
how bad things were.  Reminded over and over until a falsehood becomes
true.

Quote of the Day

Posted on 23 July 2009 by Ed Z

Here is a well-meaning government official who so fails to grasp the problem
in health care that he can present such absurd oversimplifications and suggest
that this sort of thing is the real problem — doctors simply lack the common
sense to make obvious medical decisions. President
Obama wants us to solve this problem by putting himself and other government
officials in charge of rescuing medicine from the medical profession
. If
medical doctors with a decade of schooling cannot distinguish between good cures
and ineffective ones that must be discontinued, then by gosh, we’re lucky that
the good folks from the government can.

Tell Us Something We Don’t Know

Posted on 10 July 2009 by Ed Z

Suddenly, now that it looks like they’ve successfully destroyed Sarah Palin, some
in the MSM are owning up to their dirty work
.

In the 2008 election, we
took sides, straight and simple, particularly with regard to the
vice presidential race. I don’t know that we played a decisive
role in that campaign, and I’m not saying the better side lost.
What I am saying is that we simply didn’t hold Joe Biden to the
same standard as Sarah Palin, and for me, the real loser in this
sordid tale is my chosen profession.

Deceiving in it’s sincerity.  Insulting in it’s obviousness.  Like
commenter motherbelt states, "now that the damage has been done,
[Cannon] thinks he can score points by appearing to be critical of himself and
his buddies.
"

Independence Day

Independence Day

Posted on 04 July 2009 by Ed Z

“I
am apt to believe that it will be celebrated by succeeding Generations as the
great anniversary Festival. It ought to be commemorated, as the Day of
Deliverance by Solemn Acts of Devotion to God Almighty. It ought to be
solemnized with Pomp and Parade, with Shews, Games, Sports, Guns, Bells,
Bonfires and Illuminations from one End of this Continent to the other from this
Time forward forever more.”
– John Adams

Enjoy the day. God bless America.
