Obama’s charted a course for destruction. Depression history. Dropping the Ball. Plus more.
THE TWO BANKERS WHO BROKE THE WORLD
Re: James Srodes’s The National Socialism of Obamanomics:
Just one quick remark — your “four man” thesis is in complete contradiction with the story of the 1927 meeting at Long Island as described in “America’s Great Depression” by Murray Rothbard. In his book, Rothbard argues that both Schacht and Rist (representing “Banque de France”) were against the suggestions coming from Strong and Montagu Norman regarding the interest rates and a concerted four-countries inflationary policies.
I am not sufficiently knowledgeable about the subject to know who is right based on the study of historical sources, but I certainly think that Rothbard was a very competent economist and historian.
So who is right and how can we check it?

Re: Quin Hillyer’s Obama the Destroyer:
The tone of this article reminds me of how my wife gets when she is beyond all reason with anger at me — full of exaggeration, generalization, selective attention, distortion and catastrophization. I’ve learned there is no reasoning with someone in this condition, i.e., unfortunately, the conservatives in this country at this time.
From a logical proof point of view this editorial is just silly and amateurish, again, unfortunately, representative of the conservatives in this country at this time.
I’ve learned that what my wife is doing in this condition is voicing her fears, projecting them onto me and finding “proof” of them through exaggeration, generalization, etc.
It’s very difficult to convince someone in this condition that
they are doing this, but you might want to think about it.

I think you have got it partly right, but I think you should include all liberal Democrats and Republicans.
Why doesn’t someone do a report on the first Trade Center bombing. The FBI was putting agents in the radical muslim organizations to find out who the radicals were, and the liberal lawmakers raised a big media stink. And that led to the 9/11 Trade Center destruction. Now we have the same thing all over again. Who were these liberals who interfered with our law enforcement?
Under the rules that the liberals are trying to use against the
past administration, shouldn’t the liberals that weakened our law
enforcement agencies be tried for murder of all the people who
were murdered in the last Trade Center bombing?
THE DARK SIDE
Re: Max Schulz’s Greenpeace Un-Moored:
When Senator Arlen Specter jumps sides, he is hailed by the left as a patriot and welcomed with open arms. But when Mr. Moore does the same, he becomes enemy number one and labeled as a traitor and fascist. Further, the Watermelon Brigade (Green on the outside and Red on the inside) pull Stalinist shenanigans and write him out of history (and “Holy 1984, Batman!”) delete him from historical pictures.
Mr. Moore stands by his principles and where scientific inquiry
leads him. He offers further proof that where a man starts his
life is less important that where he takes it.

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?
