Re: W. James Antle, III’s Having a Ball in the Hudson Valley:
Google these: “Greg Ball” and “Courage Cup.”
You might think that you are supporting a conservative, but what you are supporting is a self-promoting political opportunist. He destroys any one that opposes him; he is a poser and a fraud. Ball took on a 12 year incumbent, the state assembly minority pro-tempore, a guy that actually was able to advance conservative and Republican values, and turned him out of office, on a platform of “illegal immigration is illegal.” Hmmm…last I knew the NY state Assembly was two-thirds Democrat. Outside of that, the state has no ability to enforce federal laws related to immigration. Ball, now after 3 years, and no accomplishments in the assembly, much less the private sector, is going to be our Godsend.
As a conservative and a patriot, I would never, ever, pull the
lever for a man like Ball. I know what he has done, and, not

Wow! God Bless Eric Peters for the courage and clarity in this

Free trade as currently practiced is exactly labor arbitrage.

With the government takeover of the US auto companies, doesn’t that make their employees now government employees? If they are government employees, are they not restricted from contributing as an entity (the UAW) to political candidates? Does that not also mean the UAW cannot form Political Action Committees to support candidates and proposed legislation or regulations? Does that not restrict the UAW from lobbying for the “card registration” on unionizing votes?
Being government employees of course does not disenfranchise UAW members as voters. But it seems to me the UAW can no longer dump all that cash into the coffers of Democrat candidates. Perhaps the UAW will no longer be able to claim that “they elected the President.” Have thereby the Democrats not shot themselves in the foot again? Is this not another case of Obama’s “inadequate vetting” of proposed actions?
Do we not have another example of the Law of Unintended Consequences (LUC) relating to precipitous government economic planning or social engineering actions?
Perhaps it will also be seen as a bit of LUC for

TO THE HILTON
Re: George Neumayr’s My Left Breast: The Carrie Prejean Story:
The aspect that has not been pointed out enough about the “Carrie Prejean National Crisis” is that the pageant has only itself to blame. Miss California did not bring up the subject of “gay marriage.” It was Perez Hilton who opened that door. It was disingenuous and graceless for Hilton to ask the question, hear an answer shared by a majority of Americans, and then go into hyperventilating outrage.
Years ago, an attempt was made to render any expression of pro-life views bad manners. “Well, of course, you are perfectly entitled to your opinion, my dear. But one just doesn’t express them in polite company. You might hurt someone’s feelings. What if a lady present had had an abortion sometime earlier in her life? She shouldn’t be made to feel bad.”
So it is with the “gay marriage” issue. One isn’t supposed to offend those who would take offence. Even though a congregation holds that homosexual behavior is clearly condemned by Scripture and tradition, our denominational leaders at headquarters would have us keep silent about the matter so that gay visitors would not be made to feel “unwelcome.”
There will always be contentious issues of the day. When it is deemed that expression of only one side is permitted, this has nothing to do with classical liberalism. It is repression. Among gentlemen and ladies of good will, one’s opponent is treated with generosity and respect. “Gay marriage” is an open question, yet many feel perfectly justified to attack Miss Prejean. Prior to Hilton’s self-serving question, Miss Prejean was just a pretty, young woman in a bikini to the public. After Hilton’s question, she was supposed to be a black-hearted social pariah.
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.

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?
