Around the moronosphere in 60 minutes 4/9/09

Closing Velocity - Defending Missile Defense -

Alabama in Between - "Only 53% of American adults believe capitalism is better than socialism." - The storm cloud? The under-30 crowd: Capitalism 37%, Undecided 30%, Socialism 33%. So Atlas Shrugged may change peoples lives but not necessarily the way Ayn Rand wanted.

V the K - This would make soccer games more interesting


Rightwing Sparkle - Losing the Hispanic Vote - Save your breath RWS. My experience is that a lot of people would rather let the Democrats turn the country into a Marxist wasteland than admit there is room for compromise here. You can thank Michelle Malkin later.

Word Around the Net - A Liberal Critique of Ayn Rand’s Atlas Shrugged

Other stuff:

Politico - Pentagon preps for economic warfare - The war game demonstrated that in post-Sept. 11 world, the Pentagon is thinking about a wide range of threats to America’s position in the world, including some that could come far from the battlefield.

BBC - Cycling legend Lance Armstrong could face punishment from the French anti-doping agency (AFLD) over claims he violated strict drugs testing rules.


CNN - Inventor turns cardboard boxes into eco-friendly oven - OK CNN spins this as a global warming story, but I see it more as a drag millions out of disease ridden poverty story.

NY Times - Colleges in 3 States to Set Basics for Degrees - In the first American effort of its kind, universities and colleges in Indiana, Minnesota and Utah are starting pilot projects to make sure that degree programs in their states reflect a consensus about what specific knowledge and skills should be taught. Victimhood, Marxism, and Liberation Theology are rumored to be high on the list.

Washington Post - Taliban Using US Firms to Host Web Sites - What do you know the internet is good for something besides porn, stealing music and uninformed political comment - Fundamentalist hate.

and Just because it's been awhile - Ewa Sonnet
