FILLED WITH PRIDE
Re: William Murchison’s Textbook Texas:
As a proud American, as a proud retired member of the armed
forces of the United States of America, as a man who reveres the
founding documents of our nation and the principles of Liberty I
say GOD BLESS TEXAS! I wish I had been born a Texan. You folks
make my Southern American heart fill with pride.
Re: James Bowman’s Getting to Know Miley Cyrus:
God gave all of us life…like it or not, He did. He has made the rules by which we can obtain eternal life versus eternal death…AND THEY ARE NOT DIFFICULT, BUT…THE CHOICE IS OURS, EACH INDIVIDUAL.
Miley Cyrus might think she knows “who she is”, but only God does for sure.
Knowing this, the answer to the question that all philosopher’s ask, WHY AM I HERE?” is answered simply and truthfully.

If Miley Cyrus knows this then she knows who she is, if she
doesn’t, then she is sadly mistaken and at risk.

If we take up Plato’s Utopia and follow it with Bulter’s
Erewhon, we can approximate a true vision of the
wretched mess that is the only possible attainment of a fallen

Re: Ben Stein’s Orange Juice Unlimited:
Stein misses two important points regarding his analysis of the financial crisis: first, while it is true that Wall Street ran wild with “housing finance instruments,” none of it would have been possible without government, via Fannie and Freddie, making home ownership a de facto affirmative action program.
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?
