Been there. Smart Alec Baldwin. Pure fantasy accounting. Tea time in D.C. Plus more.
Re: Joseph Shattan’s The Right to Development (in Gaza):
Thank you for publishing Joseph Shattan’s work. It’s a delight to see him writing again!
His description of Gaza’s relative normalcy resembles my own experience. Some 30 years ago, I was a student, studying Arabic in Egypt. I first saw Gaza as we drove to Israel, a trip made possible by the recently-signed peace treaty between Israel and Egypt. As we arrived in Gaza, I was shocked: This is the fabled poverty of the Palestinians? Large parts of Cairo were more crowded, more impoverished.
That, in fact, was a significant part of the impetus
behind that peace treaty. It was not uncommon to hear Cairenes
complain that the Palestinians want to fight to the last

Re: Mark Goldblatt’s Alec Baldwin, Right on Taxes:
Someone needs to tell Mr. Baldwin that giving the film and TV folks a tax break is completely unfair to everyone else. They should suffer the same as the rest of New York.
What is the likelihood that he is going to change his mind when
his livelihood is at stake?
— Don Goodman
Alec Baldwin warns the New York Governor that “if these tax breaks are not reinstated…film production and television production in this town (NYC) will collapse, and it’s all going to go to California.”
Has Baldwin taken a look at California lately? The entire state is collapsing — including the studios.
In the last year, MGM stock has gone from $65 a share to under $2 a share, SONY has gone from $50 to $15, and Dreamworks has gone from $32 to $17.
Baldwin has been supporting “tax and spend” politicians his
entire life. So, pay the price, Alec! If he had any talent at
all, he might have an Oscar to melt down so he could feed the

MAN LEFT BEHIND
Re: Quin Hillyer’s Cox Exchange :
A great article, Mr. Hillyer, but as a wiser man once said, a lie will travel half-way around the world before the truth get it’s boots on.
With the left and their media whores pounding away at Cox, deregulation, Republicans, Bush, etc., the truth that traitors like Barney Frank, Chris Dodd and others created the financial mess will never be heard. And even when someone writes about it the books will collect dust on back shelves.
Then the weak Republicans will, as usual, give up on the truth and actually start playing into the lie because they know the morons they are talking to believe it instead. Cowards.
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?
