Isaac Asimov: All Four Stanzas
"I have a weakness--I am crazy, absolutely nuts, about our national anthem. The words are difficult and the tune is almost impossible, but frequently when I'm taking a shower I sing it with as much power and emotion as I can. It shakes me up every time." H/t commenter "Rosmerta" at Hot Air. [rdbrewer]

S'Mores Dip

Ginni Thomas: Nigel Farage: An Emerging Leader Unafraid To Take His Country Back
Must-see interview. Farage talks about a 3d party in America, among other things. Regarding Margaret Thatcher: "She'd be a member of UKIP. No question about it." [rdbrewer]

Giant pug roams cornfield

Michael Goodwin: Obamaís ship is sinking
Via Drudge. "Theyíve tuned him out because theyíve made up their minds about him. They no longer trust him and donít think heís a good leader." [rdbrewer]

Allahpundit: Oh, by the way: The GOP suddenly has a lead on the generic ballot ó and itís growing
"Then, two weeks ago, came a drumbeat of GOP leads: Four points in GWU; three points in ABC/WaPo; four points in CNN; seven(!) points in Fox News; and, just today, three points in Pew. Toss in another recent one from Rasmussen and thatís six polls in a row where the GOP has led." [rdbrewer]

LA Times: 'Star-Spangled Banner': Anthem was once a song of drinking and sex
Via Drudge. [rdbrewer]
Howie Carr, Boston Herald: Anti-war crowd stunningly silent on ISIS plan
"I thought the moonbats didnít want the U.S. 'going it alone.'" We used to hear that all the time, didn't we? Even though Bush had 40 countries with boots on the ground. The people who used to attack Bush over Iraq and who aren't now attacking Obama are nearly insane. [rdbrewer]
Inside America's four presidential doomsday jets [dri]
Labour (UK) Party leaders get warm welcome in Scotland. Apparently, this trip was made in an effort to swing the vote against Scottish independence. Heh. [Fritzworth]

Video: Andrew Jackson Bio
Excellent. A must see. Jackson faced some of the very same big government battles we're facing today. Apparently nothing changes. [rdbrewer]

Sen. Landrieu's Own Investigation Finds 43 Campaign Trips Illegally Funded By Tax Dollars
Whups! [rdbrewer]
Google Fiber bait-and-switch: buyer beware. I signed up for Google Fiber (1 gigabit internet service + HD TV) here in Provo, Utah, back in April and was told I would have it by September. I just didn't expect it to possibly be September 2015. If you're planning to sign up for Google Fiber, beware. And please pass the word. "Don't be evil", indeed. [Fritzworth]
Vogue tries to get on the big butt bandwagon
But there's no room. Because, you know. Besides, we were big butt before big butt was cool. More from The Washington Post. [rdbrewer]
Thought For The Day: "La vie, c'est comme Ítre baisť dans la bouche par Monsieur Gros-Pied." --Marcel Proust
Almost as Scary as Mutant Spider-Dog, But Not Quite
Still weird, though [IllTemperedCur]
T-Shirt Logo: I Majored in SCIENCE. To Save Time, Let's Assume I'm Always Right.
Strange, but I read those words as saying "Please Kick My Fucking Neck"
Bill Whittle, Truth Revolt: TIE-DYED TYRANNY
Video. [rdbrewer]

Todd Starnes, Fox News: School bans 'offensive' Chick-fil-A sandwiches
"[T]he principal this week banned the football booster club from selling Chick-fil-A sandwiches over fears that people might be offended." I have an idea: Let's encourage people to own their feelings. Via @JammieWF. [rdbrewer]

Jacob Gershman: Sotomayor: Americans Should be Alarmed by Spread of Drones
Via Drudge. "She said sheís particularly troubled by the potential for commercial and government drones to compromise personal privacy." [rdbrewer]

Sean Davis: Super Scientist Neil deGrasse Tyson Doesnít Understand Statistics
"Nothing says 'super smart' like making a really boneheaded error in your presentation about how stupid other people are." [rdbrewer]

ScienceLine: The never-ending lightning storm
"The RelŠmpago del Catatumbo... is a lightning storm that rages most nights for eight months of every year, and has been flashing for thousands of years. As many as 40,000 lightning bolts illuminate the sky every night at a rate of 18 to 60 bolts per minute." [rdbrewer]

NYT: What Weíre Afraid to Say About Ebola
"Ebola virus could mutate to become transmissible through the air ... The current Ebola virusís hyper-evolution is unprecedented; there has been more human-to-human transmission in the past four months than most likely occurred in the last 500 to 1,000 years. Each new infection represents trillions of throws of the genetic dice." Via @slublog and @JohnEkdahl. [rdbrewer]

Juan Williams, Fox: Condoleezza Rice should replace Roger Goodell as NFL commissioner [rdbrewer]

Matthew Continetti: Silent Coup: Harry Reidís plan to hand America to liberal billionaires [rdbrewer]

John Fund: Democrats in Desperation
"[T]he result is that Democrats will run even more desperately negative campaigns in an effort to hold onto power. But donít expect too much media thumb-sucking about 'attack ads' this fall, since the worst are almost certain to come from the left." [rdbrewer]

Bruce Ackerman, NYT: Obamaís Betrayal of the Constitution
"PRESIDENT OBAMAís declaration of war against the terrorist group known as the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria marks a decisive break in the American constitutional tradition. Nothing attempted by his predecessor, George W. Bush, remotely compares in imperial hubris." Added: Legal Authority for Fighting ISIS. [rdbrewer]

Reddit: Huffington Post articles are no longer welcome in r/UpliftingNews and will be immediately removed moving forward
"Simply put, a few of the HuffingtonPost Good News Editors have been sourcing stories from this subreddit for quite a while without any attribution to r/UpliftingNews, to and in some cases, even to the original journalists or bloggers whose stories were shared here (and in other subreddits)." Via @Benk84. [rdbrewer]

Daily Mail: Are we evolving into a NEW type of human? 'Different' species will have evolved by 2050, scientist claims
"By 2050, a completely new type of human will evolve as a result of radical new technology, behaviour, and natural selection." Well, maybe not the way he thinks. [rdbrewer]
