Thanks again for another political article from James Bowman. I would like to make a few follow up comments:
1. Honor is doing the right thing regardless of detractors. Doing the right thing builds trust.
2. Self-indulgence is not the right thing to do. Self-indulgence results in self-hatred. A nation of citizens obsessed with self-indulgence cannot be trusted, e.g. F-R-A-N-C-E. Hence David Horowitz’s appropriately labeled “Destructive Generation.”
3. “We” did not loose the war in Vietnam. In fact, the Communists were losers in every major operation. During “Tet” our forces handed them back their body parts by the tens of thousands. Regardless, screwballs like Walter Cronkite, Ramsey Clark, Jane Fonda (and whining old Henry), Gregory Peck, Paul Newman, Barbra Streisand, Bill Clinton, the Democrat-controlled Congress, etc., etc. managed to snatch defeat out of the jaws of victory.
4. Our forces will leave the Middle East when a super majority of people surviving there decides to join the rest of the civilized world. I estimate that would be sometime after our forces leave Germany, Japan, Korea …p>5. For our worldwide neighbors, the pleasure of our company is most often followed by health and prosperity…at the reverenced cost to us in our best and bravest. In this, true Americans can be trusted. br> — Carl Gordon Pyper USMC 1969-72 br> Monett, Missouri /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?
