A few reactions to the interview with David Horowitz:
1. With the following I totally agree: “Personally, I have lost all confidence that America’s political leaders on either side of the aisle will rise to the challenge posed by the Islamic jihad or by our porous borders until there is another, more terrible, 9/11 type attack.” To this I would add that I have no confidence that political leaders on either side of the aisle will reassert fiscal responsibility in our government’s functioning. Whether we tax to support profligate spending or put the deficits and debt and the national credit card for our major competitor (China) to own is secondary to getting spending under control.
2. In spite of Mr. Horowitz’s well rehearsed assertions, whether staying in Iraq is critical to our overall success against Islamic jihadists can be debated.p>3. The attacks on Democrats, liberals and progressives, LIKE THEIR ATTACKS ON CONSERVATIVES, are fine examples of what Professor Harry G. Frankfurt defines as “bull—-.” I highly recommend his book, On Bull—- . Professor Frankfurt states that “bull—-ing” is not the same as lying. Bull—-ers make claims without any concern for truth or falsity; indeed they may have lost the ability to distinguish between the two. Liars know what is true and what is false and deliberately assert what is false to achieve a particular goal. br> — Mike Roush br> North Carolina /p> p> CLOSE THE DOOR POLICY br> Re: Christopher Orlet’s No Sanctuary :
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?
