Politically incorrect mascots. Giving Russia the eye from Alaska. GOPcare. Plus more.

With respect to “No More Mr. Nice Charlie,” going negative will
only give Rubio the name recognition he currently lacks. That
will give Mr. Rubio greater opportunity to highlight Crist’s
unfortunate endorsement of the Obama / Democrat stimulus program.
I, for one, look forward to it.

LOAD OF HOGWASH
Re: Mark Hyman’s Bureaucrats With Badges:
Great message — sad but all too true. The real catch-22 here is that people elect idiotic bureaucrats to think FOR them, and are then too afraid to think for themselves even after they realize that the rules of their elected “leaders” are a load of hogwash. As Mark Hyman states, “[the next four higher levels of supervisors] agreed the rules were absurd but none of them wanted to take the bold step of making an exception.”
Fear of responsibility is a huge problem today. People are scared
to death today to think for themselves or to make a decision on
their own — that might actually entail responsibility, something
which we handed over to our elected leaders years ago when a
majority of voters told them that they’d rather be taken care of
like children than have a government focused on actually leading
them as a group of responsible, thinking adults.

Re: Christopher Orlet’s The Girl Who Cried Racism:
Aren’t you guilty of the same bias that you accuse the MSM of possessing? “White ‘supremacist’ groups ‘slithering’ into town to spread their hateful propaganda” versus “minority ‘activists’ flew in…[merely] to further heighten tensions”.
Why must every advocacy organization for the rights of White
people be tarred with the pejorative “supremacist”?

IN OUR LIVING ROOM
Re: Manon McKinnon’s High Stakes:
“Never quite like this”???? While I agree this issue is huge — “never quite like this” is way off base. The government had been in our front door — no, our living rooms — for decades now telling PARENTS who can and cannot make decisions for them.
Tackle a thorny issue for once; this health care issue has two
clearly defined sides. The role of family courts/child
support/children’s services is not so clearly defined and is much
more intrusive than health care.
JERKS AND FAKES
Re: R. Emmett Tyrrell’s Why Is No One Laughing?:
No one is laughing because they are jerks and don’t get Sarah Palin but they get the president who tells lies and Biden who makes one gaffe after another. They don’t even get it when the president goes whining to his supporters in town hall meetings.
Example from Obama: Did you hear a certain channel blah blah or Fox is saying this or that about me or Glenn Beck is blah blah blah, hahaha yes.
He is whiner and a fake
“During the 2008 presidential campaign, in answering a foreign policy query by Katie Couric about Russia’s proximity to the state Palin then served as governor, she was mocked for saying Russia is so close it can be seen from Alaska. Her explanation to Couric, whose face was contorted in disbelief, contained the perfectly sensible observation that Alaska and Russia share ‘a very narrow maritime border.’ That and nothing further that the governor said was laughable. Still, the media laughed.”
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?
