To paraphrase Ronald Reagan, “They [former Democratic Party members] joined the Republicans, we didn’t join them.” The Republicans voted in greater percentages for the Civil Rights acts than the Democratic Party.p>Also, not “every bigoted racist pig of a Democrat” left the party; the Democrats still have Klansman Senator Robert Byrd. If you want to lynch someone for being the wrong color, ask Senator Byrd for instructions, not Trent Lott. br> — Hugh Dempsey /p> p> In the letter from one Michael Gronewaller, his level of hatred is exceeded only by his abysmal ignorance of history in general and civil rights legislation in particular. The Civil Rights legislation of the 1960s, opposed and indeed filibustered by leading Democrats, including Al Gore’s daddy, was only passed into law by the support of the Republicans. Mr. Gronewaller, were he interested in facts instead of spewing hatred for Republicans, could check the voting record for that legislation. Then, with the new Chairman of the DNC on record as “hating all Republicans and everything they stand for,” little Mikey is obviously an archetypical Democrat. br> — W. B. Heffernan, Jr. /p> p> JUST A LITTLE TO THE RIGHT br> Re: Joy Losee’s letter (under “The Independent Spectator”) in Reader Mail’s The New Wilsonians : /p>
This should make you happy — to know that you have never flinched from your distorted, destructive tactics. Not once. I will wait a long time to peruse your writings again, hoping that, somehow, the truth will someday set you free from your hateful observations. — Joy Losee
It looks as though the author of that paragraph managed to typo her own last name.p>Memo to “Joy”: Difficult though it might be for you to move to the right, I humbly suggest that you should’ve done so — by one key — when typing the ultimate letter of said name. br> — David Gonzalez br> Wheeling, Illinois /p> p> If Joy Losee is an “independent thinker” then I’m Batman! You can see me in my new movie this June 17th. br> — Greg Barnard br> Franklin, Tennessee /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?
