Some Must Read Articles for Saturday

Infidel Blogger's Alliance has a must-read article on the potential legal liability of bloggers.  It's worth a read.  Our exposure as bloggers generally falls in the areas of copyright infringement and defamation.  I know a highly visible blogger who has been threatened with copyright infringement, although their use appears to be obviously "fair use" and exempt from infringement.  They will have to decide whether to fight or not fight if sued; even if you are in the right, it can cost a fortune to defend yourself.   One major protection you should have is umbrella liability insurance.  The cost is affordable and can cover you up to a million dollars.

Carol at No Sheeples Here has a video tribute to soldiers everywhere, appropriate for Memorial Day.  

Donald Douglas at American Power is running an interesting photo of Britney Spears in a bikini.   Britney is not skinny and we love it.  My interest in the photo was strictly to assess the sociological ramifications of her impact on popular culture.  I am sure yours will be too!  Okay, okay, I just wanted to check out her legs.

The Other McCain has an informative and educational video featuring Nancy Pelosi who articulates well her political vision.  It really changed my mind about her, and I'm sure it will change yours too.

The Great American known as Pamela Geller of Atlas Shrugs has the best Memorial Day article I've seen yet, and it questions the wisdom of Barack Obama's apology to Germany for World War II.  Ms. Geller gives several reasons why this is unjustified and unwise -- 104,366 reasons, in fact.  These reasons are marked with white marble crosses in cemeteries all over Europe, and Pamela presents stunning pictures.

The Astute Bloggers explain how the Left's DDT ban has killed millions of people, making the Greens nearly as genocidal as the Reds.  However, the liberal left wants to feel good about themselves by banning pesticides, and we must keep our priorities straight.  (I recently ordered the book "Green Hell" that covers this and other environmental wacko policies.)

Hoosier Army Mom expresses my thoughts exactly on the rights of states, in her article, State Sovereignty, an idea whose time may have come.  With the outrageous growth in the power and size of the federal government under Obama, it is time for the states to draw a line in the sand.  

Ron Russell of Totus discusses Israel and Iran and possible routes for an Israeli attack on Iran.
