The Queen sells Obamas iPod on eBay. Yes, really.

You know what’s crazy? That’s right. President Obama actually gave an iPod to the Queen of England. I’m not kidding. He really did this in April 2009. Continue reading

What they wanted was a liberal democratic world revolution. Napoleon was to become the leading figure of a severely watered-down version of this revolution.

Yet, at least concerning politics, Dawkins is dead wrong.  Continue reading

In defense of neoconservatism

Why are you a neocon, for Christ’s sake? Well, it’s not for Christ’s sake, to start with. Given that the neocons are the “evil” people who want to lead war on everyone for western dominance, it does seem to be a rather odd choice for someone who is not (yet?) a colonial administrator.
