In DC, for Inauguration Weekend.

Everyone was polite. I saw my pal Bonnie Carroll, world’s most effective human, head of TAPS. I saw my pal Bill Dean and some of his beautiful girls and his pal Michael Saylor. All charming people.
Everyone was charming but I keep thinking of what Mr. Obama said about gun control. He said we need to do everything possible to keep people from killing our children — and I agree.
But the entity that kills by far the most of our children is abortion. Gun violence kills hundreds. Too many, for sure. Abortion kills MILLIONS. If we seriously love children, let’s stop killing them when they are fully human — i.e., in utero — but also totally helpless and vulnerable.
It is crystal clear at that point that a fetus is a baby is a fetus is a baby. Why do we allow them to be killed at will? It is just plain hypocrisy to think that it is other than homicide to kill a baby. Why don’t we stop the violence against babies?
Why is the lobby against human life so strong? I just don’t get it.
I also wonder why we don’t stand up to the Hollywood violence machine. Just look at coming attractions at any theater. It is all about people using guns to kill other people. That’s what kids are taught to do with their anxiety.
Why don’t we stand up to the video game industry, which coaches young people in mass killing and desensitizes every decent virtue about life and death? It is amazing, really incredible, that when a Newtown happens, we blame guns, which are neither good nor bad by themselves — and don’t even touch the mass culture “killing is kool” Hollywood propaganda machine..
It is amazing that we will make hunters and gun collectors who have never committed a crime seem like menaces — and treat abortionists as folk heroes. What the heck is wrong with us? Well, time to go home and sleep it all off. Bob took us to Five Guys but it was closed. Never mind, It will be open tomorrow. Mr. Obama will have millions cheering him and I will have a great hot dog. A good day.
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?
