A Blogroll Roundup

I intend to do a post tonight after we get all the primary results from around the nation tonight. But until then lets see what is happening on my blogroll.

Pink Flamingo has a fascinating post up. She hits on a ton of topics but of particular interest is her family history that she is touching on. Kudos to her for sticking up for (Several Greats) Grandmother against the historic revisionist and PC Crowd.

The Anchoress has a wonder post up on what the Holy Father said last Sunday. True words of wisdom.

LSUnpredictable was kind enough to link my reference to the ESPN game day controversy and she has a link to where this was discussed quite a bit in the comment section.

Sam Brownback President 2008 tells us of a bill that BrownBack will introduce as to Iranian Human rights.

Over at Ponticification, Martin Luther and Thomas Aquinas are going head to head.

The Caucus Cooler has a post on 08 hopeful Romney and is asking if the article he references is a fair piece.

Fellow Louisiana Blogger We Saw That appears to be ill and I suspect must have some rare form of Central Louisiana Brain fever. Anywho, if you find any of that compelling please go here and here where all this stuff is refuted.

Done With Mirrors brings us news of how certain allies are letting us down again. I truly don't get that and I hope to God for NATO's sake this corrected and soon.

Big Lizards hit on all this Democrat silliness on the President's speech last night. I swear this is so transparent. If the President had not mention Iraq last night the Dems would be attacking that.

There is much more on my blogroll and this is just a sample. Please pay it a visit

hi thanks for the plug however you are wrong. nothing is refuted by the articles you cite here. the first one doesnt even mention building 7 and how it could have imploded (read controlled demolition) in upon itself when it was struck by nothing but some dust and the second article you cite mentions building 7 in the below exchange. the truly discerning easily see that popular mechanics argument is so weak that their james meigs has to resort to a rather juvenile obfuscation attempt by comparing the 911 truth movement to "holocaust deniers" cant you see the desperation to avoid the subject of building 7? you can try to use backhanded insults that you think you have dressed up into witty bon mots in order to marginalize truth seekers but again the truly discerning can easily see that you offer no real answers yourself.

DYLAN AVERY: Sure. Well, basically, which is -- this is one thing that a lot of people don't know about September 11th, myself included, until I started doing the research. At 5:20 p.m. on September 11th, World Trade Center Building Seven -- it was a 47-story steel-frame skyscraper 300 feet to the north of the North Tower -- at 5:20 p.m. this building collapses in under seven seconds completely into its own footprint into a debris pile about six or seven stories high. Now, it wasn't hit by a plane. It was hit by debris from the North Tower when it fell. But, if you look at all the buildings surrounding the World Trade Center, and if you actually look at Building Five, which is right underneath both the Twin Towers, that building is engulfed in flames for hours after Building Seven even collapses.

So, we have all the buildings surrounding the Twin Towers heavily engulfed with debris, some engulfed in flames. We have World Trade Center Building Seven, which has isolated fires on floor seven and twelve. It has smoke coming from its south face, and these guys claim that 25% of the building was scooped out. Even if 25% of the bottom of the building was scooped out, that still does not account for the building falling in perfect freefall into --

AMY GOODMAN: And your thesis about what happened? What do you believe?

DYLAN AVERY: It would have had to have been a controlled demolition. That's the only way to prove -- that’s the only way to explain what we saw with our own eyes, and any attempts to discredit that are just not scientifically sound.

JAMES MEIGS: You know, this is a wonderful example of how conspiracy theories work. Any time there’s a little bit of doubt, a little bit of area where we don't know everything, then the answer immediately is, well, someone must have blown it up. It’s a form of argumentation that’s also used by creationists. If they can find one little gap in the evolutionary record, they say evolution’s a hoax. Or Holocaust deniers --

Good grief. As soon as this elections primaries are over tonight I intend to check this building 7 thing out. What the heck happen to all those people on those planes? Were they all murdered?
