If only Jack were here. Holder your horses. International community organizing. Plus more.

When Holder does that and gets substantive answers, perhaps then he will have gained the credibility to begin to lecture America on race relations between blacks and whites.
Meanwhile, he should just try to enforce fairly to all of us the
laws of the United States if, that is, he has time leftover from
his duties as Moralist-in-Chief and Associate

What does a lawyer do for a living? Talk, talk, and more talk. Is our government filled with lawyers? Can we still do simple math? Ok, I’ll ask another question: Why do lawyers think they are so smart and knowledgeable? Go to Plato for the correct answer, then finish with a Shakespeare quote as dessert!
No wonder that cold northern wind that came during the election cycle offered so much concern for these elite thinkers of great thoughts and ideas!
Cowards always prefer talking, don’t ya know? Whoops, I forgot
Eric be a lawyer too!

Holder et al. may be playing games, but the challenge need not be accepted on his terms. The discussion can be broadened to include class envy, propaganda, hypocrisy, empirical evidence of the enslavement of blacks by liberals since 1965, or any number of topics. But they will not engage on those fronts. They want truth commissions, confessions and money. The real courage will be to resist. The real courage will be to expose our alma maters. The real courage will be to resign our memberships in compromised institutions. The real courage may be not to invite a black co-worker to a week-end barbecue but to invite the Dean of the Journalism School to a televised debate and ask him why, when he sees a picture of a chimpanzee, does he automatically think of Barack Hussein Obama.
I am not in a position to extend the invitations or to provide
the arena, but it would be interesting to find out if there are
any out there who would have the courage to do so and even more
interesting to see how many deans and presidents and publishers
heretofore cowardly hiding behind the skirts of political
correctness would jump at the chance to engage.

Re: James Bowman’s Sean Penn’s ‘Milk’:
Yippy yahoo! Hollywood somewhat accurately portrays a somewhat historic figure they think we need to know about. The same film-makers have no problem knocking moral capitalist geniuses, politicians they hate, or military types when the plot suits them. Heck even when the caricature is wholly awful, the plot inaccurate, and the message an abomination of reality, a large segment of the press is there to comfort them with free ads as the flick tanks at the box office.
They lost me on the “historical” figures flicks a long time ago.
Yeah, we got Milk, but we also got Frost-Nixon and Bush-bash ad
nauseam from this same group.

Re: The Prowler’s Lone Wolf:
Along with Immelt, Obama is assembling a rogue’s gallery of
economic advisors. Never mind trading with the
enemy. Never mind tanking your company’s stock. Never
mind abetting tax avoidance for tens of thousands. We need
people who can bring their expertise to the country as a whole,

ISN’T IT IRONIC?
Re: Gary Wolfram’s The Road to Legalized Plunder:
The economic stimulus of the Obama Administration commits
American children and grandchildren to years of labor to pay back
the borrowed principal and interest. Involuntary servitude is
slavery. That slavery should be instituted under a black
president is too painful to be considered ironic.

Re: George H. Wittman’s Snake Oil Diplomacy:
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?
