“What happened to the media’s hardheaded realism on display during the days of Saddam Hussein? If human disasters don’t merit American leadership, why should natural ones? The American media were chanting, follow, follow. Now they chant, lead, lead. Which is it? Aid to Iraqis was “patronizing” and presumptuous, but massive aid to Indonesians is compulsory?”p>No single statement I have seen so precisely and concisely sums up the hypocrisy and inconsistency of the position of our press and the left in this nation when it comes to the conduct of foreign affairs. br> — unsigned /p> p> GET MAD br> Re: Eric Peters’s Checkpoint Puritans : /p>
Blood alcohol level statutes, like most gun laws, have the intent of depriving everyone of the tools to commit harm against others. Rather than the presumption of liberty in its most refined sense, while simultaneously holding someone accountable for their actions, for injuring or killing someone while driving drunk, or using a firearm in the commission of a crime, and in such event inflicting severe penalties, liberty is disposed of and the malevolent actions pre-empted.p>It is not a coincidence that “Mothers Against Drunk Driving” and “Million Mom March” and Sarah Brady’s day job are the leaders of such a radical change in the American way of life. It is a maternalistic system that seeks to “protect” people from themselves and in fact treat them like children. Such a system gave us the Eighteenth Amendment, the Volstead Act and the incubation of la Cosa Nostra. It would appear that the granddaughters of those original suffragettes are determined to repeat the bitter mistakes of their grandmothers. br> — Frank Natoli

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?
