I know, Roland doesn’t post much here anymore, but I thought I’d borrow his soapbox for a few lines :-).…

Spreading a meme
Roland wanted to post this here, but he’s crashed for the night so I’m taking the liberty. Hey, I need to use my posting rights once in a while :-).

Five Minutes To Midnight
It’s been too long since I’ve posted, but even with all that I’ve seen recently, this jumped out at me:
Five Minutes to Midnight: The War Is Coming, No Matter How Hard We Try to Evade It.
“This Time We Must Not Surrender Five Minutes Before Midnight.” — Adolf Hitler
The war referenced in the linked title is the supposedly necessary and inevitable pre-emptive invasion of Iran.

A Plague of Madness
Is this the beginning of the end?
I refer, of course, to the ever-widening circle of war, murder and stupidity in the Middle East. I point no fingers, because every force actively involved in the violence seems to want to inflame the other side as far as possible. Naturally, Israel has the big guns, but that’s not the problem. Unsurprisingly, the various terrorist groups who want to destroy Israel are targeting its military, but that’s not the problem either (military targets being, you know, legitimate). No, the problem is that both sides seem intent on inflicting as much misery, fear and death to their foes’ civilian populations as possible.…
The Innocent Have Nothing To Fear…Right?
A Homeland Security Department spokesman was held Wednesday on felony charges of sexually preying on a detective posing as a 14-year-old girl through explicit online conversations. He was quickly suspended without pay from one of the nation’s top crime-fighting agencies.
The arrest of Brian J. Doyle, 55, raised doubts about the ability of an agency responsible for safeguarding the country to ensure the security credentials of its own people.
Gee, ya think?
Of course, it can’t get much worse than this, right?…
He Said He Was A Uniter
My apologies for yet another long dearth of posts; I’ve been focusing on Street Prophets and my local group’s local blog, but I’m sharing this one around — it’s that time again — and thought it would make a good re-inauguration of the Justice Log. It certainly fits the subtitle.
Every so often, I feel compelled to return to this issue, the heart of what shows that Bush is evil — not just his administration, nor Bush himself merely incompetent — but the man himself, the puppet sitting in the Oval Office. He bears responsibility, no matter how he might try to avoid it.…
Res Ipsa Loquitur
Hunter sums up our times in a single paragraph:
It’s so painful, it burns. Perhaps “leaders of any group will turn out to be liberals” is indeed true, and perhaps there are a hundred perfect reasons for it to be true that are not part of an insidious secret plot by All Those That Oppose Us. Jesus McCracker McBain, it has been shown time and time again that liberalism is directly correlated to knowledge. I’m going to tattoo it onto my forehead, or paint it on my car: It’s not a conspiracy, you’re just stupid.

Promoting Linse’s Law
This meme is sheer genius, so I thought I’d share:
As a corollary to Godwin’s Law, I propose “Linse’s Law”:
As a debate between pro-war and anti-war pundits grows longer, the probability of the pro-war side accusing the anti-war side of being unpatriotic becomes 1.
I heartily recommend the rest of the post, particularly the quiz: do you know the difference between patriotism and jingoism? Well, sure, you do, but I have to wonder: do they?

Pegging the Hypocrisy Meter…Again
Crossposted from Justice Log. Article from Big Orange. (Can I call them “Big O“? ;-)
You know, I think I’ve finally figured out what Duby’a true talent is: reaching new heights of sheer, unadulterated hypocrisy.…
Politburo Leader Frist Backs Gulags
Bill Frist (R – Siberia): objectively pro-gulag:
Bill Frist on the existence of overseas “black sites” where the Bush administration secretly holds detainees in the war on terror:
I am not concerned about what goes on and I’m not going to comment about the nature of that.
Well okay then.
