Some Posts Worth Reading.

I have not seen anything that I moved to post on tonight so I will leave a few links that I have found good tonight.

Gagdad Bob at his One Cosmos Blog, my second visit there thanks to Dr Sanity, has a cool posting about Liberals and Conservatives that is really well done and actually kind of funny. But I loved this line "Thus, many liberal ideas are believed not because they are true, but because they are beautiful." Sadly that is the truth.

Our fellow blogger at Born Again Redneck has a posting on the victims of Sharia, including a couple of very upsetting pictures. I hope we do not come to regret bringing Democracy to these people and I really don't understand the sympathy that gays and feminists have for these Jihadists.

The Gates of Vienna have a very good analysis of the terrorists, why we haven't yet defeated them, and why we must. It is important to note that the old theories of war need to be thoroughly reworked in order to be effective against a non-national enemy with no official territory to defend.

ABFreedom also chimes in on the failure of Socialism and its failure to acknowledge its failure.

Finally, People Covered With Fish has a semi-regular "Tuesday Trivia". I offer one of my own. Regardless of our opinion of it, Archie Comics and the gang from Riverdale are part of the American culture and has been since December of 42 (Archie first appeared in the same month WWII started). My question is this: In the 1940's comics, Riverdale is consistently described as being a city in what state and a suburb of what major US City? (It's now a generic city that could be anywhere with mountains and oceans nearby - but it was once specific in its general location.) Again what major US City was Archie Comic's Riverdale originally a suburb of?

First, let me say I had a few beers and am just glancing. Come on guys, when are we going to stop playing games and act like Americans? When will we finally sit down and FIX things instead of jockeying for position? I am just so sick of this partisian crap! There are core values that we all agree upon as Americans, and it is time to concentrate on those and stop splitting hairs!

Gagdad Bob has an excellent position and on his post he had me 98% of the way until he began spewing his Platonian verbage. I saw snippets throughout his dissertation and thought that this was where he was going. Yet, I must say, you are correct shoprat, he has them pegged to a "T".

Sorry LP, ABF is right. It's a little bit north and west of Boston.

I thought that was pretty obscure; I didn't expect it to be answered right away. Oh Well.

Always tough doing trivia on the Intar-webs. Darn Google makes the obscure significantly less so. Thanks for the link!
