CT is enduring anxiety not shame. The state has no shame. There have always been and always will be anti-Semites. Some people openly express this and other anti bias. I do not believe the few have-no-lifers represent the people of CT in general.
My perception is the people of CT are suffering from acute anxiety rooted in their economic demise. New England is unmistakably loosing good high paying jobs and barely replacing them with retail or service jobs that pay a lot less. Everything else is going up including taxes.
Whose fault is this economic decline? The answer from the Democrats and some Republicans is our current President and thanks to the propaganda that passes as news, the Republican Congress as well. It’s as if he has some magic power to lower the cost of all goods.
In CT you cannot go after the President, so the next in line is Joe Lieberman. But the Senator’s troubles started with the 2000 (it was disgusting to some when he ran for two jobs) ticket and continued in 2004. He missed a lot of votes and seemed disconnected from his constituents. Add to this his unattractive personality and it was a recipe for disaster.
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?
