How tiresome. Ben Stein trumpeting his civil rights advocacy by citing a scar on his rear from some unidentified presumed redneck racist Marylander.
I’m an ordinary American, I think. I didn’t march in any civil rights demonstration any time, at any place, and I won’t pretend I did. But I also never tried to deprive anyone of their civil rights. And I think the law should treat everyone the same, regardless of race.
None of my forefathers, though they lived in the South, enslaved anyone. At least one I know of fought for the South in the Civil War. He was a sharecropper in North Carolina, and fought simply to protect his home.
I did serve in my country’s military for 20 years and I fought in the Gulf War alongside other Americans of many races and creeds. Today I would not trade that experience; that common bond with my fellow soldiers, with complete disregard for their race or belief; for a thousand of these self-righteous civil rights pomposities.p>And I really damn tired of people beating a racist drum every chance br> they get to further their own agenda. br> — John Mercer br> Alexandria, VA /p>
Trent Lott’s unfortunate remarks have landed him in trouble. I argue that Lott’s problems are greatly exacerbated by the fact that the Republican base does not like him. The overwhelming sentiment on the many conservative websites is a general dislike of Lott with his recent gaffe being the opportunity the chance to oust him.
Republican voters out here in la-la land have wondered for about forever why this man without an ounce of charisma, but a modicum of charm and in need of a spine transplant, is continually re-elected by his fellow Republican senators to such a visible position of Senate majority leader. His gutless behavior in the matter of the impeachment of Bill Clinton didn’t help. Nor did his so-called “power sharing” with the Democrats when the Senate was at 50-50. His pork barreling for Mississippi is looked upon with disdain by the Republican base….p>In short, we never liked him anyway. br> —- Pat Fish
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
