Sweden is Sinking: Are Domestic Bells Also Ringing?

6-18-14 1:07 PM EST: The Swedish Ship Vasa is a metaphor not only for Sweden, but for the whole of Europe as well. The King of Sweden Gustaus Adolphus invited Dutch shipbuilders to help expand his navy as part of the military expansion he initiated in his war with Poland-Lithuania in 1621-29. Once launched, the Vasa immediately keeled over in a light wind and sank in Stockholm's harbour. She remained there for three hundred and fifty years before being raised and restored.

Video Killed The Radio Star: Poljunkie Friday!

6-20-14 8:00 PM EST: I can remember the first day of MTV. August 1, 1981. I was 21, living in Southern Oregon. Although I was nearing completion of college, and my original plan had been to pack up and return to San Francisco as soon as school ended.

Things had recently changed for me. I had a fledgling business up and running, quite by mistake, and surprisingly it was doing really well. I was very much considering staying on for a while longer. I was absolutely enjoying my freedom, modest success, and rural surroundings. Of major importance to me, was that I was able to enjoy the local music scene as well as summer and winter sports that were just outside my door. Life was good.

Dinesh D'Souza: Obama's Fundamental Change of America

6-17-14 11:34 AM EST: Dinesh D'Souza is on The Kelly File speaking about the fundamental change to America which has been brought about by Barack Obama and his administration. He uses an anology at one point that causes Megyn Kelly to laugh, as if what he said was ridiculous in some way. I don't think it is. I think it is a very apt analogy.
