The wisdom of Newt and Steve Forbes. The Dems’ BS degrees. Beck and the mainstream media. Here’s the plan. Plus more.

Re: Andrew Cline’s Criticism Is Racism:
Andrew Cline’s response to Jimmy Carter’s charge of racism is “Really? Prove it.” Reminds me of “Shane” when Shane tells Wilson, “I’ve heard of you.” Wilson: “What have you heard Shane?” “That you’re a low-down Yankee liar.” Wilson: “Prove it.” That leads to a deadly gun battle.
Maybe Joe Wilson should have just quoted Shane and called Obama a
“low-down Yankee liar.”

Re: Russ Ferguson’s The Check on Healthcare is in the Mail:
To add a point to Mr. Ferguson’s piece, government employees are
irrevocably insulated from their failures to perform and from the
consequences of their actions, which means they may, and likely
will, inflict misery upon or kill the rest of us either via
benign neglect or to meet whatever passing political fancy (or
objective) grabs them at any given time. Until government
employees have “skin in the game” (i.e. they and their families
are at risk of their decisions the same as the rest of us) the
disconnect Mr. Ferguson notes will always exist. We see this
today in the fact that in the great de-leveraging of the last
year, while the rest of us took a fairly monumental financial
beating, the government not only has escaped the belt tightening
via “stimulus,” but plans to take to itself more (healthcare
system) and more (cap n’ tax).

Re: Ben Stein’s We’ve Figured Him Out:
Mr. Obama in his health care speech left an impression on me that
has never been left before after viewing an address. I felt like
I was being scolded for not understanding “what was good for me
or my country.” Well, I do agree with your astute observation
that he is realizing that he is on a time line for pushing
through his agenda and there seemed to me to be a bit of panic in
his tone. When will the democratic party and some republicans
remember to study and vote for the good of the country instead of
behaving like a bunch of lemmings and blindly following a scary,
charismatic orator who is poised to send this country in a
direction that might take years or decades to turn around once
the damage is done and our elected officials wake up? These are
indeed scary times and thank you for your perspective.

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?
