MISSING THE POINT
Re: Nicole Russell’s Bachmann Turns to Overdrive:
“Still, Bachman’s headline-grabbing stunts, time spent on talk radio and cable, and even labels from staff and peers would be worth it if she could put her money where her mouth gabbed. This is her second term as a U.S. Congresswoman. She has yet to sponsor and pass any effective legislation at all”
Clearly the author of this article, Nicole Russell, is missing
the point. Failure to sponsor and pass new legislation is a
victory, not a failure. We don’t need any more legislation. I’d
be the first to vote for Ms. Bachman, and for any other
congressional wannabee who runs on the idea that we need to stop
passing new laws and instead spend our time sorting through and
eliminating all the bad legislation currently on the books.

Didn’t FDR’s NRA and associated programs, also promulgated on the
basis of the commerce clause, break up in the Schecter v. US case
in 1935? Maybe lightning will strike twice…

THE CARNAL NATURE OF MAN
Re: George Neumayr’s The End of History and the Last Pope:
Every Catholic should read this article and pass it on to their
brothers and sisters in the Church. Once these secular humanists
use their media vehicles to hold the Church up to public ridicule
and contempt in the eyes of all Catholics, taking down the other
Christian denominations will be easy. Then, in such event,
atheistic Marxism and the new left socialism can march across the
world. Satin may win this round. The only consolation is that we
know how the fourth and final act will play out. This may be the
Church’s finest hour. A test to control the carnal nature of man
in the Church, and to bring forth the Spirit of God that dwells
in each of us.

Re: Ben Stein’s We’ve Figured Him Out:
Thank you for having Ben Stein as a contributing editor to TAS. His recent editorial “We Figured Him Out” was beautiful, because it is full of compassion and reverence for America, and Americans. We all know that we are not perfect by a long shot, and yet Mr. Stein, in a loving and benevolent way, expresses kindness, and admiration for Americans and captures what our nation values.
I so regret that our president does not share this view. His track record domestically and internationally seems to offer the direct opposite of Mr. Stein’s view, and suggests he despises this great country. We need look no further than the recent outpouring for Haiti following the devastating earthquakes, to see how America responds to tragedy with an outpouring of compassion, even in times of great economic stress domestically.
Americans need to wake up, and realize how dangerous it is to
have a leader in the White House who wants to bring America down,
not build her up. Ben Stein captured the essence of Americans,
and what motivates them. Thank you Ben Stein!

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?
