In Reader Mail on Jan. 27, Mr. Don Smith states the following:
“I’ll start the charge. Let’s boycott Arkansas until it removes that damnable star from it’s flag. How would Sharpton put it…oh yeah. How can we be free as long as that star is on the flag? How can we hold our heads up high as long as that star is on the flag, etc.
“This boycott will not be cheap so I humbly ask for donations.”
He’s kidding, right? A boycott of Arkansas would be very cheap given the fact no one goes there to begin with. As an Arkansas resident from 1970-1983, I saw Little Rock get “renovated” more times I can count. The Dimbulb party there will float taxpayer money over and over and over to “revitalize” downtown or the river area every few years and it never works.
The guilt ridden, rich white people (you’d be shocked how many very rich people live in Arkansas) in Little Rock never back up their ideas of a viable economic city with crime control. Little Rock is a substandard city with horrible gangs, crime and drugs while the left wing white Democrats think if they just ignore it, it will go away. They can’t pass zoning that makes sense, can’t keep the roads in decent shape and couldn’t run a state owned lemonade stand if their lives depended on it.
White flight to the west of the city is huge and destroyed North Little Rock where you have to have global positioning in your car to even figure out how to get anywhere. The construction of a huge interchange from the East to the North Little Rock area looks abandoned the last time I was there. Grass was growing up around what little had been built. Protho Junction going East from NLR has been a road nightmare for over 30 years, the greatest man in history Bill Clinton notwithstanding.p>The hotel ole Billy Boy exposed himself to Paula Jones in was, in 1976, called the Excelsior and was considered back then to be the new savior of the downtown/river area. After many renovations and owners, the place is still a dump today…. br> — Greg Barnard br> Franklin, TN /p>
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?
