TAS has come through again with a lot of food for thought in its articles and especially the letters section. That letter from the 15 year old was a real hoot. (Hellooo, anyone home dear girl? I would suggest she educate herself on global warming and stop parroting the liberal screed of doom.) Interestingly enough , a military history magazine, this month, has a fine article about appeasement which goes against popular perception of the issue, especially as it pertained to the Second World War. The article states that Chamberlain had no choice but to appease Hitler since the British were pretty well bled dry in the First World War and had not yet recovered militarily, while France had adopted a policy of “containment” with its Maginot line and wasn’t about to commit itself to another bloodbath without being ready for it. The article also stated that Hitler could have kicked both nations butts if they had interfered with his reoccupation of the Ruhr. I would say the article puts the argument about appeasement on its ear pretty good, though I will not say I entirely agree with it.
Yes, I have to agree the Republican party has cut it’s own throat but will the Democrats take over in November? That remains to be seen since while they may sense victory, it does depend on how upset the conservative faction is and if we really want the loon party in control of Congress, even with George in the White House. Let’s remember, we still have troops in danger and having the cowards in charge won’t bode too well for them. This brings up the recent conflict Israel is having against the other terrorists and the fact they were stopped again by the UN from wiping out the scumbags, with help from the Bush administration. Once more, defeat is snatched from the mouth of victory, IMO.p>Lastly, Miami vice? I would say the corruption in politics there is symptomatic of the moral corruption prevalent in this nation today, not only in government but within society itself, especially in the area of the acceptance of homosexuality as a protected right, that supercedes all other rights. We are witnessing the destruction of the “great experiment” that took root in 1776. We didn’t need an enemy storming our beaches to defeat us, rather we rotted out from within. br> —
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?
