One terrible bill. Lott and Yeatman vs. Pelosi. Obama’s Persian adventure. Plus more.

A Congress of freshmen who don’t take reelection for granted

Re: Ken Blackwell & Ken Klukowski’s A Religious Test:
We experienced the same treatment at a blues festival in Lebanon
Ohio and we got it on film. The police were taking the Christians
by the arm and leading them out of the public area. Needless to
say, we received an invitation to pass out literature anytime we
wanted to in the future and at, yes, the next blues festival. We
have a very savvy pastor who threatened to sue the city for
discrimination and violation of civil rights; they caved in and
gave us the right to pass out literature at any future event. I
know some of the other areas of the country do not accept that it
is a civil right to express yourself in public, especially if you
are are expressing Christian beliefs, but it can be done. It is
time we all stood up and demanded our right to peaceful assembly
and the right to speak freely with out retribution.

ICED TEA AND LEFTOVERS
Re: Quin Hillyer’s After the Tea Parties:
How about a National Freedom and Liberty Day, with all of these groups coordinating together, pulling all Americans wanting to maintain their Freedom and Liberty together for peaceful marches and demonstrations at national, state, and local government office locations, all on the same day and repeat it every month if necessary until the current corrupt government gets the message. “We the People who are the United States of America are not going to sit quietly and idle while our freedom is taken from us and our country destroyed.”
Most of the men in my family and many of my friends have and are
serving in the United States military. There are a lot of “US”
but the “Socialists” and “Corrupt Government” are not taking us
seriously because they only see us once every three or four
months at the Tea Parties. How about all of these groups
coordinating together to start campaigning now against corrupt
politicians who out of greed are helping rob all of us of our
Freedom, using all means available: local rallies, internet
campaigns, radio and TV ads. There truly is strength in numbers
and if all these like-minded groups come together at specific
times we could be heard and make a difference.
PERPLEXED ON PERSIA
Re: Peter Ferrara’s Obama’s Iran Blunder:
It is unbelievable that you could print such nonsense as Peter Ferrara’s article.
I like to get a glimpse of all opinions across the political spectrum, but this article is more than flawed — it’s dangerous and ridiculous.
I am a Jewish American, and naturally will line up to make sure Israelis can live in peace and security.
“Like Adolf Hitler, the theocrats who run Iran have told us exactly what they plan to do. They plan to build nuclear weapons, and use them to ‘wipe Israel off the map.’ They have said this plan is rooted in their fundamental religious beliefs and doctrines regarding the return of their God to Earth. They have said they will not abandon this plan for anything, not trade concessions, financial aid from the West, or security guarantees. Their conduct is consistent with carrying out this plan…”
They’ve said Israel should be wiped off the map because they feel the region was drawn up without legitimacy by western powers after World War II. I don’t agree with that argument, but that’s a far cry from misstating their words as if they are laying out their plans to build nuclear weapons and nuke Israel.
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?
