REVERSE THE DAMAGE
Re: Peter Ferrara’s America’s Record Recession:
Peter’s analysis is spot on. There is yet another factor that exists today which was not in play in any of the recessions since the 1930s. The ideal of a world economy is now a reality. Countries such as China, India, and many other former third world countries have now become major players in global trade.
These countries have begun to develop their own middle class and raise the overall standard of living for their populations. In order to compete and continue this growth they must attract business and investment capital to their shores while being agressive in their export activity. They can do so because of cheaper labor costs, lower taxes, fewer regulations and a benign legal environment.
American companies, and their domestic workforce, must compete and in order to do so are increasingly opening operations themselves or in joint ventures in these nations. Gone are the days when by our and European economic hegemony we were able to control world trade.
Those policies as outlined in this article will accelerate this
process and further delay any true recovery and job growth. If we
continue on the course Barack Obama has chosen, not only will job
creation cease but unemployment will remain in the double digit
range, inflation will rival that of the 1970s, and jobs lost to
countries overseas will never return.

Since the non-government National Bureau of Economic Research
declared the recession started in December of 2007 when there was
a positive GDP growth, one would think that since Obama’s
recession (with historic unemployment and wage loss) would
continue even if there is a mild up-tick in the GDP in the third
and fourth quarters of this year. Until consumers (70% of the
economy) actually get into the action, claims of the recession
being over are all hype and hyperbole. Of course, for the
historically high millions and millions of Americans who now go
to bed homeless and hungry thanks to Democrats, the recession has
become a depression. One can only hope that a future Republican
Congress and President can reverse the damage of Obama Democrats
and take us back to the prosperous days of George W. Bush and

Re: Matthew Vadum’s Obama’s Plan to Desecrate 9/11:
God forbid we try to move on from the tragedy of 9/11.
Republicans and right-wingers just want to keep reminding people
of the event because it was such a successful campaign for seven
years for an administration that was a corrupt as it gets.
I think I can speak for a lot of people in my town and it is not
a Democrat day nor is it Republican day, we view it as a day of
rememberence for over 3,000 people that were also Americans . The
left or the right can call it what they desire, it is still a day
that will long be and will remain with us for many years. No one
has the power to erase that .

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?
