Re: W. James Antle, III.’s Lou Dobbs’ America:
Lou Dobbs is and always has been an intellectually dishonest reporter and commentator. His only desires are to gather as much attention as possible and to boost his own popularity and influence. His current toe-dip into the prospect of high public office would be hilarious if it weren’t so emblematic of our society’s frightening tendency to attribute gravitas to the most unaccomplished and treacherous among us, the current occupant of our White House being the most alarming example.
Thankfully, it appears that Lou has chosen precisely the wrong
moment to shed his super-conservative costume and launch himself
as an immigration centrist. His timing always has been pretty
weak. This time it’s probably fatal.

DESTRUCTIVE OF THESE ENDS
Re: Peter Ferrara’s Obamacare: Still a Threat to Your Life:
Yes, our lives are at stake. So is the very Republic that is America.
Given what Obama said last Thursday at the White House, with his white-clad robo-props surrounding and applauding him, inarguably he and the Democrats have formally declared war on our country.
So is it then time for Americans’ dissent to go beyond words?
Is it time, as the Declaration of Independence says: “That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends [Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness], it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government”?
I don’t think Obama and his thugs care. They appear to count on the public sitting idly, watching the Marxist takeover and destruction of America.
They must be stopped.

“But what is adopted by reconciliation can and will be repealed by reconciliation, setting a precedent for future entitlement reforms using the same process.”
This is a fine article and its last sentence is the scoop of the year — all of us readers chewing our nails out here in the hinterlands have been looking for a ‘save’. Please follow up with more explanation. If it is true, then the Cavalry ‘s coming… It is the very best platform any candidate could run on for 2010.
Thank you for your fine work. American Spectator has some of the
very best work published in this world.

NO HELMET, NO COVERAGE
Re: Eric Peters’s Thinking Outside the Helmet:
You are quite right in defending the choice of the driver whether
to wear a helmet or not. But the insurance companies should also
put out a proviso, “no helmet, no insurance coverage for
accidents.” That way the person is free, and the insurance
company is not required to be open to tort lawyers, or the
foolishness of the driver.

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?
