There have to be some terrorists out there we haven’t found yet, there are probably some illegal aliens, and probably a hatful or two of moonbats who have threatened our President, the Secret Service is instead spending its time on things like this. This comes to us courtesy of Virginia Postrel, original article in Dallas Morning News.
DENTON â€“ The U.S. Secret Service has seized bogus $1 million bills printed as religious tracts from a Denton ministry, saying the bills too closely resemble real money. The ministry’s leader says he’ll continue to hand out the tracts until he is ordered to stop.
Three agents visited the Great News Network at 2012 W. University Drive about 1 p.m. Friday and seized 83 100-count packets of what appear to be $1 million bills.
I am looking for an alternative to Google, seriously folks. Reasons:
- Their record of censorship in China
- Their screening of blogs that are “politically incorrect” (Do a search on “Jawa Report” on google news…)

Â SIMI VALLEY, Calif. (AP) – Two years after Ronald Reagan’s death, former first lady Nancy Reagan visited the hilltop gravesite of the nation’s 40th president and gently tapped his tombstone.Â Â
Two years later, and I still am wishing we had some ofÂ Ronald Reagan’s wisdom with us now:
Above all, we must realize that no arsenal, or no weapon in the arsenals of the world, is so formidable as the will and moral courage of free men and women. It is a weapon our adversaries in today’s world do not have.
Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children’s children what it was once like in the United States where men were free.Â — Ronald Reagan, 40th President of the United States
In a sign of the desperation seizing the environmental lobbies now that Kyoto is being questioned or even thrown by the wayside by some of the signatories, several groups are now lobbying against nuclear power. They see the coming dissolution of all the plans and organizations they’ve put together in the intervening years: the grants, the jobs, the public speaking engagements, the press, the notoriety, and the subsidies — all for things that do not work.
The protests in Iran continue, I appreciate the diligence that bloggers are taking to pixilate the faces of the protestors, the folks in Iran are courageous and putting their future and their families future in jeopardy in the face of the repressive regime in Iran. Please take care with the reporting you do as a blogger, you don’t want to be a yahoo or google.
Update: please revisit both Gateway Pundit and Publius above, their excellent coverage continues, if they weren’t doing such a great job on this I would feel compelled to write on the topic, but it would be inferior to the work they are doing.
If you like historical fiction, Jame’s Clavell’s book “Whirlwind” has a heroine from Azerbaijan, the book details the frantic escape of the workers of a Scots oil company from Iran during the weeks that Khomeini’s thugs were taking over the nation.
The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere
The ceremony of innocence is drowned;
The best lack all convictions, while the worst
Are full of passionate intensity. – Yeats
