Eat More Salt

Wednesday, August 31st, 2005

OK, that’s not the message in John Stossel’s essay, Half-baked science, but he does use the example of the federal anti-salt Nazi to point out how much government policy and corporate propaganda is based on poor and rigged science, which is to say that they are not based on science at all. Stossel’s salt example: […]

Gas Panic in Georgia

Wednesday, August 31st, 2005

Is there a Gasoline panic throughout the country, or is what’s happening in the South an anomaly? Gas stations in Georgia are running out of gasoline. Some are closing shop, and the ones still open have long lines reminiscent of the 70’s oil crisis. People filling up their tanks are filling up portable, plastic gas […]

In an editorial in yesterday’s Financial Times entitled Why Europe Must Reject Centralisation, Vaclav Klaus, the president of the Czech Republic, shares his thought about the future of Europe in the wake of the French and the Dutch voting “no” to the EU constitution.

Two excellent NRO articles

Monday, August 29th, 2005

Don’t miss two, excellent articles at the National Review Online: Campus Rads vs. Our Vets and Cindy Sheehan’s Radical Strategist The first article is about veterans (some decorated) of the War on Islamic Fascism who are returning to college campuses only to find seasoned, leftists professors trying to relive their 60’s, Vietnam-era protest days. Now […]

Environmentalists & Their Hypocrisy

Friday, August 26th, 2005

In the name of supporting US exports, the Export-Import Bank of the United States, an independent government agency, financed the construction of numerous power plants all over the globe. Because Ex-Im Bank cannot compete with private sector financial institutions, most of these projects were in riskier, emerging market countries, such as Indonesia, Pakistan, Turkey and […]

“Michael and Me” and why I love the web

Friday, August 26th, 2005

Check out Larry Elder’s self-promoting article about his new movie “Michael and Me”, a documentary about Elder following Michael Moore trying to get him to answer this question: “You tell us how many gun deaths there are in America, but how many Americans are alive because they were able to use a gun for self-defense?” […]

Dear Cindy

Thursday, August 25th, 2005

“Dear Cindy” is the title of Clifford May’s open letter to Cindy Sheehan to meet with him now that President Bush wisely has declined as second meeting with Der Psycho. What would Cindy learn? May writes, I’ll invite to join us some of the many Iraqi freedom fighters with whom I’ve been working for the […]

The Iraqi Constitution

Thursday, August 25th, 2005

I have wondered if the idea of a deadline for producing an Iraqi constitution is a good idea. On the one hand, imposing an arbitrary date on the creation of such a fundamental document seems, well, arbitrary. However, given the major compromises that must me made to draft this constitution, I have a strong sense […]

Premature Evacuation Afflicts Democrats

Wednesday, August 24th, 2005

In their never-ending quest to make President Bush look bad, Democratic leaders and their supporters, led by psycho Cindy, are screaming that we must prematurely evacuate Iraq. Fortunately, President Bush is standing firm on his committment to finish the job, and not pull out until the Iraqi’s can defend themselves. This shrill lunacy from the […]

Give ’em Hell, Zell

Tuesday, August 23rd, 2005

I was feeling a bit nostalgic and wanted to watch Zell Miller’s 2004 speech at the Republican National Convention. Unfortunately, the link from this very website returned an error. So, I had to find a more reliable source. Check out this link for a great, Zell video moment. A Democrat telling it “like it is” […]

North Korea: A Charter Member of the “Axis of Evil”

Tuesday, August 23rd, 2005

Here’s a link to an amazing article in today’s NY Times by James Brooke reporting that the Red Cross officials from South and North Korea are meeting to discuss the fate of South Korean POWs and civilians being detained, mostly in forced labor camps, in North Korea (the war ended in 1953). According to the […]

Diplomacy and Terrorism

Monday, August 22nd, 2005

Diplomacy and Terrorism is the title of Victor Davis Hanson’s latest essay, and the topic is a comparison and contrast between American military intervention in Afghanistan and Iraq, and the diplomacy of Western Europe in Gaza, Iran, and North Korea. This essay focuses on Europe’s approach with a discussion on each area. Unlike Iraq and […]

Why the Extreme Left Loves Cindy?

Sunday, August 21st, 2005

Mark Steyn’s latest, ‘Peace Mom’s’ marriage a metaphor for Dems explores a politically-incorrect analogy between the extreme Left and Cindy Sheehan: The dichotomy of extremism between Cindy and her husband parallels the dichotomy between the extreme and moderate wings of the Democratic Party. The results are familial and political divorce, respectively. Steyn writes, Yet in […]

How to Say “Hard Questions” in Farsi

Sunday, August 21st, 2005

George Will’s latest column, Axis of Irritation, covers alot of ground in its examination of some of the thorny problems in Iran and Iraq facing American foreign policy makers. With respect to Iran, Will writes : Meanwhile, acting on behalf of “Europe” — an old geographic expression and a freshly minted political fiction — Britain, […]

Live, in Cuba, its “Farenheit 451”!

Saturday, August 20th, 2005

In his recent essay, Book burning in Cuba, Nat Hentoff tells an amazing tale of a recent encounter with legendary Ray Bradbury — author of the famous novel Farenheit 451 — in which he gets to inform Bradbury of Castro’s library-burning practices in Cuba as a classic example of life imitating art. In this case, […]

Canada — Facts do not Matter to Gun Grabbers

Saturday, August 20th, 2005

This essay by John Lott, Canada Blames Us, demonstrates, once again, how irrelevant facts are to politically-motivated Gun Grabbers. In this instance, it is Canada that is grappling with an increase in violent crime after Canadian gun control laws went into effect. But this is nothing new: just look at what happened in England and […]

Israeli withdrawal is correct and necessary

Friday, August 19th, 2005

Israeli withdrawal is correct and necessary is the title of Charles Krauthammer’s latest essay weighing in on the Gaza pullout experiment we’ve been following. Western support for the pullout has coalesced around several, primary themes: Gaza and the settlements are fundamentally indefensible. By giving the Palestinians their own land, Israel is taking the high-road while […]
