Some topics too painful for Quin. Dems sound like a broken record. Enforcing the fairness doctrine everywhere. Plus more.
DAILY DOSE OF DEPRESSION
Re: Quin Hillyer’s Not Gonna Write About It:
Your despair at the current political situation in this country regarding the Stimulus Bill has led you to a rock solid truth: that the Stimulus is a political bill, not an economic bill. It is designed to deliver Democrat votes in areas of the country that are changing from red to blue. The earlier TARP concept to unfreeze credit markets is a legitimate economic concept that should be continued. But the Stimulus Bill is a lie, an assault on common sense.
We know it is a lie because its underlying assumption is a lie. Global Warming caused by human induced release of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere has not been proved. Indeed it has been disproved. Based on the assumption of Global Warming, the Democrats say they will bring alternative energy sources to market with government subsidies and eliminate carbon as a pollutant. These alternative energy sources cannot make it to market on their own dime. Meanwhile abundant natural resources, trillions of dollars in oil, gas and coal, enough to meet our energy needs for decades lay wasting in the ground and in the sea.
To fund the Stimulus, the government will borrow huge sums of money. Yet the oil, natural gas and coal are commodities which are the equivalent of money. So why do we have to borrow money from foreigners when our natural resources can provide the money to fund economic growth?
Again the reason is that the Stimulus is really a plan to take
control of the Country. So take heart that the truth is in sight
and right makes might.

Two things: 1) The artwork with this article is reminiscent of Soviet art of the last century.
2) One of the best adjectives I have heard to date to describe Obama, his works, his minions and others of his ilk: “Obamunist.” (Obama plus communist)
I guess now I should start to worry about the knock on the door
in the middle of the night by Obama’s STASI, er, the “Peoples’
Army,” or whatever the new domestic “peacekeeping” organizations
will be called.

Two books explain much of what is happening in America. The first
is “The Vision of the Anointed,” by Thomas Sowell, and the
second, more frightening, is “The Rise and Fall of the Third
Reich,” by William Shirer. The former gives the motives, and the
latter describes the means for subjugating a free people. The
parallels with pre-1936 Nazi Germany are so striking as to be
make one believe he is reliving history. Obama’s apocalyptic
language is appropriate, but not in the way he intended. We must
commit to live free or die.

BRACING FOR IMPACT
Re: W. James Antle’s The Democrats’ Greatest Hits:
Frightening piece, Mr. Antle.
The four horsepersons of the new apocalypse — Obama, Emanuel, Reid, and Pelosi - are using me as an economic crash test dummy, securely buckled in and headed toward a wall at a hundred miles an hour.

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.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
