Condi is on a roll.
Some really like Condi, and want to see her in the oval office. See here, here, and here.
Let me see … Condi or Hillary? That is a no-brainer for me. Condi all the way.
I think that a little-recognized fact about Condi is the deep reserve of goodwill that has built up [...]

Condi is on a roll.
Ever troubled by the argument of cultural relativism - the theory that one culture is just as good as another? I recall a high school sociology teacher telling the class that in the Eskimo culture, men would share their wives at night with other men. He said that this might seem wrong to Westerners, but [...]
Back home tonight, relaxed, and ready to restart my normal life - including blogging. My wife and I drove 2500 miles over the past week, whew.
We always like to try different foods along the way when traveling. Gosh, I love good food. The simple pleasures are the best.
Chicago is famous for its hot dogs. [...]
Taking a week vacation, so I will be blogging very little if at all. See you back at NoSpeedBumps in a week.
I will spend a couple of days in Chicago (never been there, nor has my wife) and then we will head on over to the big air show in Oshkosh, WI. Should be [...]
The NoSpeedBumps slide set on this site is meant to offer ideas for overhauling U.S. social polices including the tax system. Eventually I hope to write a book based the ideas in these slides. I would be doing that now for 8 hours a day … if it wasn’t for that dang day job [...]
Regarding my round-up of not-so-classy quotes from DailyKos, a reader writes, “But isn’t this like shooting fish in a barrel?” Good point! When all you have to do is directly quote someone to make them look really bad - that is like shooting fish in a barrel.
Had a Little Green Footballs link (here) to [...]
My wife and I are going to the Oshkosh Air Show next week. Didn’t realize it was so huge - 750,000 others will show up there too.
Looking forward to seeing if Larry Neal can actually fly his Gyrocycle shown above.
Might take a ride on a B-17 while I am there too. That costs about $300.
Charles Krauthammer has a brilliant piece on Iraq today. He makes a very strong case that the neo-cons are right. (FYI - I have never called myself a neo-con. I am still trying to figure out what one is. But I have supported the war all along, whatever that implies.) He describes the three approaches [...]
I have supported the Iraq military efforts from the beginning and still do. However, it is important to listen to responsible and reasonable critics. The critic that I take most serious is Randall Clark at ParaPundit. He has warned of the spread of private militias in Iraq. He quotes from this news article:
In southern Iraq [...]
The Kurds are doing fine in northern Iraq according to this German journalist (hat tip Chrenkoff):
A glance out of the window of the Director General for Finance of the Kurdish regional government shows how far the future of Kurdistan has already flourished: around the Ministry of Finance, as in many places in the city, buildings [...]
Kevin Drum has a post where he quotes David Von Drehle of the Washington Post comparing today’s blogs to the Federalist papers:
A case could be made that the Federalist Papers were the greatest blog ever. Like many blogs, this was the creation of a group of like-minded activists (Alexander Hamilton, James Madison and John [...]
