The trouble with means testing Social Security. Which Bush was right on Iraq? Plus more.
(Page 3 of 3)
In regard to “On Bush’s ‘March to Freedom’” by the
estimable Paul Kengor, “the crux of the debate” is not what is in
human hearts — all are God’s people and thus are created equal —
but what is in human minds. It is ideas that have earthly
consequences (I am re-reading Weaver) and Middle Eastern minds are
not ready, to say nothing about the social institutions of
oppression surrounding them. A few elections in Afghanistan and
Iraq — no matter their courage, which is not in doubt at all —
will not change that reality as neither have had time as yet to
settle back fully into their milieu, although they are both headed
in that direction as the recent news makes absolutely clear with
the Shiite majority now suppressing Sunni dissent rather than vice
versa. Unfortunately, it was all predictable (and predicted)
beforehand and it will be the father who will be vindicated rather
than the son.

While listing all the intelligent conservatives out there,
you couldn’t, if only in celebration of Women’s History Month, come
up with one woman?

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.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
