This blog consists mostly of common sense responses to happenings (news articles, political events, etc) that just cry out for someone to say "WHOA! Hang on a second, here!" Too many people get away with just inventing their own facts as they bull-rush their way through an argument.

Unless you're dodging a taxicab or sidestepping a falling gargoyle, it's usually wise to take what time is available to evaluate and apply actual common sense. Good, old wisdom. It is, of course, my opinion, but I'll try to show why I think it's factual.
Thomas Paine said, "To argue with someone who has renounced the use of reason is like administering medicine to the dead." ... but I argue with drunks, egomaniacs, anti-gun Statists, Socialist/Keynesians and climate-fraud peddlers, too.

Links in the chain...

This week, as has been  posted, broadcast and exploited nearly everywhere, Osama bin Laden was killed in a raid (details from the Dear Leader's people are sketchy and - um - "fluid").  It is fairly clear that 6 1/2 years of intelligence was built upon to give CIA and SEALs-VI a plan to present to Obama, who (given a choice of: ignore, toss a bomb [into a heavily populated civilian district full of current and retired Pakistani military] or approve a black ops raid), said "go ahead".  What's clear is, despite Leftists frenzied assertions that the rare use of enhanced* or "harsh" interrogations are not only useless, but counterproductive, the interrogation techniques of the Bush administration worked.  The first links in the chain to Abbotabad came from GITMO, Rendition and enhanced interrogation.  Period.  No special handling, no Osama.

Meanwhile,  the Left continues to blank it all out, pathetically asserting descriptions like this (a Google search response description of the same Colmes falsehoods on Oreilley's show):

Bill O'Reilly Attacks Alan Colmes To Defend ...

Is there any end to the lengths that these folks will go to justify torture? Particularly Bill O'Reilly, who was puffed up like a blowfish ...

*Much political hay has been made by the Left over the word "torture".  "Torture is unAmerican!", which is absolutely true.  It's interesting to note that the standard for "torture" chosen by the current administration is not what causes severe and prolonged pain or physical injury or some over-arching international law, but what is cited in the Army Field Manual.
Thus, "Hey, fatty", along with "people are going to die" and "you really suck" are all designated as torture as insults, harsh language or threats.  A small handful of American's prisoners have been "waterboarded", a technique specifically designed to induce discomfort and possibly panic, but not to injure.  Others have been kept awake for long periods or sworn at and threatened.  99% of our unlawful enemy combatant detainees (the ones that raped women to death, killed whole villages of civilians or sawed the heads off living American prisoners for their cameras?) received none of these.

If you have a few more minutes, watch this excellent analysis by the brilliant PJTV  "Trifecta" gang, Bill Whittle, Scott Ott and Stephen Green.

Unity! Let's all get behind the movement that got bin Laden!
Obama, on the other hand was among the Leftards insulting, resisting and voting AGAINST every step of the long haul that got SEALs-VI  to Abbotabad.  Now, having made the only rational decision on a completed OPs plan put before him (and prohibiting releasing any evidence as "spiking the football" and "not American"), he wants to finally visit Ground Zero and 9-11 families to "lead" the flag-waving, 'USA' chanting majority that he called "Tea Baggers" from the presidential podium?!?
