Over on the ConservativeX forums there's some talk of starting a conservative movement for college students to educate the public about conservatism and such. It is being named the Independent Conservative Movement, and it is not affiliated with the Republican Party. Here's a link to the thread where we talk about it. Independent Conservative Movement.

If anyone reading this is interested and is or will soon be in college, please either email me at the address you can find next to this or register at ConservativeX and post in that thread.

This is hilarious. You have to read the description.

Greg Rummo has an interesting article up about abortion. He has a great many good arguments here against abortion, bringing up the many different pro-abortion arguments and refuting them in turn.

Mark Gauvreau Judge at the Claremont Institute has an interesting article about pop music. While I disagree with him that lyrics aren't important (being the kind of person who carefully listens to lyrics), I think he is right overall about music. Pop music is largely worthless, with little redeeming value. I think there will be a "conservative reclaimation," not in a political sense but in a musical sense. Eventually the currently popular music will come to it's natural end, with no meaningful words, no melody, and a lot of people dancing around in videos. Then, people will want something that sounds a little more...musical.

Ann Coulter has some things to say about liberal talk radio, or the lack thereof. I think she's right on this. Even liberals don't like to listen to liberals go on and on. Frankly, it's depressing. Most liberals I know preffer to watch and listen to conservatives and then complain about the conservative media.

Jay Nordlinger has some interesting things to say about Jimmy Carter. It's always seemed to me that Carter is not exactly the person he pretends to be. His seeming admiration for Castro and Arafat has always made me suspicious of him.

Internet Explorer didn't work any better. I guess I'll have to somehow get my Powerbook working. For now I'll use this PC. Anyway, here's another test of linkmaking to see if the PC is working any better:

I think I know what went wrong. I was using the public beta version of Apple's Safari browser. I'll have to report that as a bug. I guess until Apple comes out with the final version of Safari I'll have to use Internet Explorer.

Hmm, don't know what happened with that last post. I suppose the link is where it says "posted by D" down there. Anyway, it's a story about Mars and the fact that there may have been melting snow as recently as 500,000 years ago. That would make terraformation a real possibility.

Republicans are pushing for school vouchers which of course the democrats oppose. Why? Well, because the teachers' unions oppose them and the teachers give money to the democrats.

Well, perhaps terraforming Mars isn't going to happen as easily as previously thought. That's too bad. We still should be trying to get to Mars, and perhaps even be planning for a long-term settlement of it. After all, I think people would be willing to live in domes for the chance to colonize Mars.

If you've not read it, you have to get The Case for Mars by Robert Zubrin. It's great.

Isn't global warming horrible!

At this rate, everyone will freeze to death before we get a chance to be drowned by melting icecaps!

Well, this is too bad. Freedom Fuel was a pretty good name. Anyway, hydrogen cars sounds like a good idea. I wonder how soon they'll be widely availiable. If only we could switch to all hydrogen cars, and get a great deal of our other needed power from nuclear power plants, we could cut off most of our dependence on oil and the Saudis would lose any power they currently have.

Oh no the president is against stealing and racism!

This is actually fairly interesting. The Democrats don't want fairness or justice, they want prefferences to be given to people who largely vote for them.
