Hillary in tuzla

To bad she is not going to win the primary.

The Belmont Club: The Wilders film

The Belmont Club: The Wilders film
In analyzing the film and it likely consequences, Wretchard comes to a depressing conclusion
With Bush's coalition warfighting strategy under attack both from liberals and conservatives, the public may be left with stark choice of either regarding Islam as an misunderstood ideological "friend" -- the abstract equivalent of a protected minority class -- or as an implacable enemy, one bent on the destruction of the West. The problem with this formulation is that the pacifist approach is certain to be discredited over time because Islamic radicalism will implacably attack. And without the coalition strategy available policy will oscillate between the extremes. The price for not fighting the War on Terror effectively is that it eventually degenerates into a War of Civilizations.

I am often worried about the paths that the Long War is going to take.

Nick the Noogler.

It's Official. I am a Noogler. I just completed my first day at Google. And boy did it turn out to be a long one.

Everything at google went great, except for my laptop which was windows and did not work. The google buddy team is setting up a macbook for me. The food was FANTASTIC. I had both lunch and dinner, but I sure didn't plan on still being at work till 9pm my first day.

This weekend Maria, Kelsey and I went to Valencia to visit Kayla at the California Institute of Arts, Inner Spark program. We stayed in LA until 8pm on Sunday, so to make things easy for my first day at Google, we drove to Mountain View and rented a Hotel. Maria planed on shopping and checking out the area until I was done around 6pm. I called her at 6:15 and said I was done. At 6:17pm she called back saying the car would not start. At 8pm when the tow truck said it was more than just a dead battery, we realized all of the car rental places had closed. The tow truck driver took Maria and Kelsey to the Dodge dealer. The manager at the Dodge dealership took pity on Maria and gave her a loaner car. A convertible, probably in hopes that the wife a new google employee would fall in love with it.

Finally at 9pm Maria arrived to pick me. I showed her and Kelsey around the campus, but all the
Cafe's had closed, so they ended up eating at Taco Bell.

Now we are checked back into a Hotel again. Tomorrow we will straighten out the car situation.
I'll post more about being a noogler tomorrow.
