Re: Christopher Orlet’s The Hunt for Gray February:
As a lifelong hunter and professional outdoor communicator I am ashamed and deeply concerned about a recent article, Christopher Orlet’s The Hunt for Gray February, published on The American Spectator on February 3th 2009.
I am not sure what the writer tried to achieve with that article. I just know this. The article was not humorous, if that was the intent of the writer. The article is a blatant insult to women and hunters of the worst kind that I have had the misfortune to read in recent years. That hunters are portrayed as gun-toting alcoholics is nothing new and unfortunately the usual slander committed by people lacking facts and moral fiber to further their own agenda by insulting others. But that the writer puts women down and portrays them as some sort of second class human that should be kept chained to the stove is too much to comprehend for anyone who has evolved from his Neanderthal state to a modern man.
I am surprised that the editors of The American
Spectator let such a piece of ignorance and bad penmanship
slip by them. How could you insult and offend so many readers
with garbage writing like that? You just lost a reader, and
seeing the comments to that particular article I am sure I am not
the only reader you will lose.

IN SOVIET RUSSIA, THE MILITARY RUNS YOU
Re: Doug Bandow’s Completely Useless:
Sometimes I despair.
Although I agree with some of what Mr. Bandow wrote — particularly the ancillary elements of his argument — he is absolutely dead wrong in his two central premises.
One is that “The Cold War is over, and with it Moscow’s potential for dominating the continent.”
The other is that “Even before the economic crisis Russia’s global pretensions exceeded its capabilities.”
During the so-called “breakup of the Soviet Union,” I despaired. What logical person could believe, I asked then and ask now, that a country full of people — in and out of government — could go to sleep one night as third and fourth generation communists and wake up democrats and capitalists?
What logical person could believe that in the United States, Americans could go to sleep one night as third and fourth generation democrats and capitalists and wake up communists happy under a totalitarian government? Same difference.
What logical person could believe that a thousand years or more of living under some of the most totalitarian governments in history could blithely be set aside in favor of a wonderful, wacky dream world of democracy and capitalism?
I despaired at our American media who, alone inside their own foggy crystalline dream world where instant gratification is always narcotic, especially when the gratification coincides with their insular notions of how the world should look, displayed a paroxysm of joy and silly triumph matched in history only by the election of Barack Obama.
I despair now when I read that Russia is finished as a power, or has even the slightest limitation on her economic capabilities.
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?
