Astronomical Numbers, Geeky Barbie, Wind Farms And Craigslist

*U.S. debt—bigger than the galaxy? Thanks to an alert reader who sent me the following quote by Nobel Laureate Richard Feynman: “There are 1011 stars in the galaxy. That used to be a huge number. But it’s only 100 billion. It’s less than the national debt. We used to call them astronomical numbers. Now we […]

The History Of Cinco de Mayo

Before you head out to enjoy a margarita or two (or maybe a cerveza) to help celebrate Cinco de Mayo, I thought you might be interested in knowing a little background about this popular holiday. It was on May 5, 1862, when a badly outnumbered and under-supplied Mexican army, under the leadership of General Ignacio […]

Food For The Homeless, Free Beer, A Risky Plan And A Telling Sign

*Don’t feed this to the homeless.

Illegal Day Of Prayer, A Costly Taxi Ride And Schwarzenegger Wants Money

*Judge outlaws National Day of Prayer. It was bound to happen sooner or later. Last week, U.S. District Judge Barbara Crabb declared that the National Day of Prayer—something the nation has honored since it was first proclaimed by President Harry Truman back in 1952—is unconstitutional. She was responding to a lawsuit filed by something called […]

Communists and the United Nations

On April 25, 1945, 45 countries convened in San Francisco for the founding conference of the United Nations (U.N.). The general secretary of the meeting was none other than the notorious Soviet espionage agent, Alger Hiss. He had been picked personally for the post by President Franklin Delano Roosevelt and was promptly approved by FDR’s […]

No Flag, Strange Artwork, Soaring Interest And Nutty Psychiatry

*Obama orders our flag taken down. United States military personnel in Haiti have been ordered not to fly the American flag. A spokesman explains that “We are not here as an occupation force, but as an international partner.” Isn’t that absurd? The whole world knows we’re there on a mission of mercy, not conquest. By […]
