Re: Ben Stein’s The Purpose of Defiance:
I am second to none in my admiration of Ben Stein and he is spot
on regarding our liberties as Americans. It is also proper that
we be often reminded of our debt to those who have fought for
those freedoms. Yet I can not join him in wishing good fortune to
a president who wishes to quiet those who hold different
political views and who advocates more government intrusion into
the lives of citizens. Nor can I wish good fortune to a president
who thinks that terrorists and other mortal enemies of our nation
are best treated in the same fashion as burglars and car thieves.
What I can hope and pray for is that those by whom we have
consented to be governed choose a course that best protects the
rights and individual liberties for which so many have paid a

HE SAYS WHAT HE MEANS
Re: Peter Ferrara’s Good Morning, Suckers:
Mr. Ferrara points out that the voters will pay over $2 billion
for the completely ineffective head start program and will
waste another $2 billion on federally-funded babysitting
services. Considering that a social welfare program, once
funded, never ever goes away under any circumstances, I now
understand what the president means when he says there will
be trillion dollar deficits for years to come.
— Garry Greenwood
I appreciate Mr. Ferrara’s line by line itemizing of the coming government malfeasance. We knew this would happen. But this is change! Ostensibly, the change we need.
Being faithfully married for over 17 years, I can’t wait to reap the benefits of $300,000,000 for STD research. Too bad about the prophylactics.
As a 20+ year conservative, I am delighted to see ACORN receiving over a billion dollars!
I have a soft spot for the article’s icon: Alfred E. Neuman. So I was delighted to see that MAD Magazine may reap a windfall from the Nation Endowment for the Arts spending. Hopefully, the MAD men had their lobbying contingent in place.
If they’re left an increase in funding bovine flatulence research off the list, we Americans may not see another sunrise.
Let us pray that congress had the foresight to include that as well.

Democrats, should you plan to allow any of your fetuses to reach
full term, know this: Your children and their children will pay
for the “stimulus package” for decades, while shivering in their
cramped, tumbledown apartment, with an American — gasp! — car
in the carport. Take solace, however, in the knowledge that you
will be able to enthrall them with tales of your spendthrift ways

PUNISHED WITH BARACK
Re: Lisa Fabrizio’s March Toward Life:
Lisa Fabrizio quotes President Obama saying that if his daughters “make a mistake, I don’t want them punished with a baby.”
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?
