The Boat House of Milwaukee's East Side

I remember driving past the Boat House ever since I was a kid. It's just a few blocks west of University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. Steve Schmidt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel has a story about it with lots of pictures. Five hundred square feet, never a boat, it was built in the 1920s as a house which looks like a boat.

I'll bet a nickel that today one could not under any circumstances get a building permit for so much joy.

Enjoy it.

Obama Campaign: Vote Early, Vote Often, Vote in Multiple States

Our Democrats at work:
James O’Keefe has done it again — this time capturing video of a paid Obama Organizing for America director in Houston, Texas, assisting a double-voting scheme directed toward Florida. In the video, an undercover Obama “volunteer” tells Organizing for America’s Stephanie Caballero that she wanted to vote twice to help reelect President Obama....

This paid Obama staffer is a radical’s radical. She was active in the Students for a Democratic Society in Houston. The most shocking thing about that is that the SDS still exists. The second most shocking thing is that someone from this leftover Marxist organization would be a paid staffer with the DNC.
So, has the Democratic Party been infiltrated by Marxists, or taken over?

Watch the video here.

The Religion of Peace Or I'll Kill You

MINGORA, PAKISTAN A Taliban gunman walked up to a bus taking children home from school in Pakistan's volatile Swat Valley on Tuesday and shot and wounded a 14-year-old activist known for championing the education of girls and publicizing atrocities committed by the Taliban, officials said.

The attack...targeted 14-year-old Malala Yousufzai, who is widely respected for her work to promote the schooling of girls — something that the Taliban strongly opposes. She was nominated last year for the International Children's Peace Prize.

The Taliban claimed responsibility for the attack, calling Malala's work "obscenity."

"This was a new chapter of obscenity, and we have to finish this chapter," said Taliban spokesman Ahsanullah Ahsan by telephone. "We have carried out this attack.
Of course, we are supposed to consider Taliban as just as respectable as we are. And practitioners of a religion of peace.

Maybe the peace of the grave.
