I stumbled across Daily Kos while searching for articles about Newt Gingrich. Daily Kos is such a pointless website. Every time I read anything there, it comes off as stuff written by a not-too-bright outraged 15 year old. (I guess that is why they call them the Kos Kids.) At the same time, the posts [...]

Instapundit links to this video blog piece today by Ed Driscoll. It is somewhat interesting, but I guess I just don’t get the main point …
Many bloggers talk, like Ed Driscoll, as if the mainstream media is a dinosaur that will soon go away (and many even rejoice at this). Yes, many big media companies [...]
This week I had this site upgraded to the latest version of WordPress software. I had safeguards added to keep out hackers (they had broken into this site). I have re-enabled comments now too.
I will put up some new posts soon. How often will I publish new posts? Can’t say. But at least the NoSpeedBumps [...]
This website has been doing strange things lately. It may be due to the zillion spam hits I get everyday. Spammers will try to break into your site too. Recently I have had posts edited with advertising materials (in the actual posts, not the comment section).
Today I see that an old draft post was published. [...]
On March 27, 2005 I published the first post here at NoSpeedBumps. Since then I have published 1020 posts. Gosh, that is surprising. That is a lot of words!
My sitemeter says that NoSpeedBumps has had 145,279 visitors since this blog was started.
Not sure how much I will be posting in the future. For now, it [...]
For some amusement see this new blog, Stuff White People Like. Here is #55, Apologies:
White people know that their ancestors did some messed up things. As a result, it has become hard wired for them to apologize for almost anything.
In fact, white people are so used to apologizing that they start all sentences that [...]
Barack Obama ignored them and still won in Iowa.
People within the blogosphere, both those who run sites and those who read them, often assume blogs are more influential than they are. It is a pretty small slice of America that reads blogs. For that matter, it is a small slice of America that even follows [...]
After over two years of blogging, I have decided to take a break from it. For how long? I am not sure. It may be 2 weeks, or 2 months, or 2 years, or longer.
The NoSpeedBumps blog has 937 posts, so if you like reading this blog there are always the archives to dig through. [...]
For one month last year, Texas turned on 70 video cameras along the Texas border and let internet users watch for illegal border crossings. In that one month, the site got 221,562 registered users and 28 millions hits. This makes you wonder: Why not put cameras along all US borders and have citizen volunteers watch [...]
Once a week or so I like to watch some of the newer videos on YouTube. I think it is fascinating because you find plenty of stuff that just won’t find an outlet in the major media. Anyhow, I did a brief post last November about singer Esmee Denters and I wrote:
“You can pay big [...]
Today, according to SiteMeter, NoSpeedBumps received its 100,000th visit to this site. Time to break out the Budweisers!
