Gene Wright (sure he’s not Brubeck’s former bassman?) nailed it with his Monday letter — where are we disappointed to go?
I doubt if, in good conscience, I’ll ever be able to vote for another Democrat (I’ve known and liked several governors who were good people, but that was 20+ years ago in Alaska), but strongly resent even opening those Mickey Mouse fund-raising letters from the GOP — they’re sick.
And, while I hardly agree with much (if any) of Barney Frank’s agenda, I would certainly trust him a whole bunch more than Pat Robertson or the sanctimonious James Dobson. Or Jerry Falwell. And Jimmy Swaggart.
To perhaps make matters worse, some ultra-right backers of the “moral” Republicans (like Medved as just one example) put down the “Losertarians” at any/every opportunity — but, really, the Libertarian Party is about the only political entity that offers anything for people like me; gutless Republicans fail to stop those Democrats’ blockings, Dubya’s spending goes up - and up, and government continues to grow while the borders are akin to colanders. Principle.

And, to make matters worse, those presently receiving entitlements are going to outnumber the US producers quite soon, and my usual optimism is failing fast….p>One good thing, however — at least I was fortunate in moving from the stifling Socialist Soviet of Seattle, home to a virtual plethora pseudo-sophisticates and would-be intellectuals, to the Texas Gulf Coast where my congressman is Ron Paul, one of the very few voices of sanity in D.C. br> — Geoff Brandt br> Quintana, Texas /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?
