Friday Highlights

Good morning, I slept in having basically finished my work out here on the West coast and just awaiting a noon flight home to Chicago.

  1. The new openness in the Administration, “cannot comment on specific instances” … or not. More on the census as well.
  2. Mr Reid notes a problem with the SBC
  3. Which was basically the same as the problem that St. John Chrysostom had 1500 years earlier.
  4. Taking the WSJ to task.
  5. If I was on the left, observations like this, “During the 2008 election, Obama co-opted huge portions of the Left and its infrastructure so that their allegiance became devoted to him and not to any ideas” would be quite troubling.
  6. Ecclesia.
  7. Endurance sports and camaraderie … perhaps a Romans 5:3 thing?
  8. Banach-alia.
  9. One model reviewed … the sort of thing detail and discussion lacking in the beltway to support their policies.
  10. Whether or not there is a right to privacy … the government certainly has reserved the right to extreme stupidity.
  11. Aha! (from the left).
  12. Supply, Afghanistan and the necessity for relations with Pakistan.
  13. Coptic resource for the coffee table.
  14. Yikes.
  15. CBO and stimulus.
  16. Big number found.
  17. The state, morality and legislation.
  18. On single parenthood and the UK.
  19. Pippin and Obama.
  20. Considering the Cylons.
  21. It was remarked in a comment here that “no debate has been stifled” regarding the stimulus bill … evidence to the contrary is here.
  22. A suggestion regarding the housing market problem I’ve mentioned (in conversation if not on the blog) made elsewhere.
  23. So … if you think carbon offsets are an issue … how much do you use a bike for daily travel? If not, perhaps you’re just a hypocrite like Mr Gore.

    LOL, I think you’ll find that the majority of your fellow cyclists are liberals. Do a survey sometime.

    Been away in Ft Lauderdal on a business trip. Good times always 🙂

    Anyway, interesting but a lot was missed by not waiting until last Friday’s episode. While I’m still digesting it, it seems like the cylons are ignorant of their true creators except for the one played by Dean Stockwell. His cylon can be described as a ‘bad Job’. He resents his creator for making him so human with all the limitations that go with it when he could have been made as a ‘perfect machine’. Unlike the Biblical Job who bore his sufferings with as good spirits as could possibly be mustered this Job is pissed and out for revenge.

    One question not answered, yet, is where the cyclons came up with the idea of a monotheistic God to begin with.

    JA,
    Well, I’m not sure why the “majority of cyclists are liberal” is interesting, but the question was asking was the majority of liberals who are not cyclists.

    Boonton,
    I have to admit I haven’t been following the BSG saga yet … I’ll get to it , but I don’t have cable and rely on broadcast TV (and Netflix). When the series is done I’ll watch it, likely sometime during the next off-season training time.

  4. Boonton says:

    Ahhh, I’ll refrain from talking about it until you watch it. You may want to start now, though. I think there’s like 4 years worth of shows to watch.

  5. the question was asking was the majority of liberals who are not cyclists.

    I agree that anybody arguing that people should bike to work who themselves do not bike to work are hypocrites. I can’t imagine there are too many of those, though. I don’t think it’s hypocritical to believe global warming is an urgent matter but not rearrange one’s entire life as a purely symbolic gesture.
