Irrational Legislation

| February 28, 2008 | 0 Comments

I heard from Friends of the Earth, a huge environmental organization, who one would think would favor the Lieberman-Warner Climate Security Act of 2007 being advanced by Senate Democrats. It would impose a cap-and-trade program to force reductions of so-called greenhouse gas emissions.

Is it Because He’s Black?

An irony exists in that Obama’s oft-mentioned relative inexperience might prove to be both a strength and a weakness. In the case of his battle for the nomination with Hillary Clinton, it has been a distinct advantage. While both can articulate their vague far Left rhetoric exceptionally well, Obama is charismatic, while Clinton is a harpy. Obama is charming and disarming, while Clinton is shrill and unfeminine. Many Americans are quite sure Clinton is capricious, narcissistic and possibly larcenous. They have no idea – due to the aforementioned inexperience and by the chary designs of Obama and his handlers – of what he is really all about.

Democrats Demagogue Poverty. Again.

| February 24, 2008 | 0 Comments

Predictably, the government, i.e., taxpayers, will be expected to underwrite a raft a new programs to alleviate the problems of the poor. Those of us old enough to remember President Lyndon B. Johnson’s “War on Poverty” also recall that there were poor then and there are poor now.

A Castrated Nation

If there was ever an election cycle in which the issues (at this juncture, really weighty ones) took a back seat to pomp and circumstance – or, if you prefer, hype and flatulence – this one is definitely it.

Looking At Obama and Black Liberation Theology

Looking At Obama and Black Liberation Theology

Barack Obama belongs to an unabashedly Black African-centered church. Its teachings focus on a “black value” system. It has knowledgeable Americans questioning how Obama’s church (Chicago’s Trinity United Church of Christ) and its pastor, the Reverend Jeremiah Wright, Jr. influence the man who wants to be President of the United States.

Calm Sun, Cold Earth

Since switching their message in the 1970s that an Ice Age was coming to the complete fiction of a massive, dramatic global warming due to greenhouse gases, the Greens have been able to influence policy at the international and national level. They have been utterly relentless, a modern version of the Mongols on horseback who swept out of the East to conquer everything before them until they reached the gates of Europe. These days the Greens have long since conquered Europe.

You Don’t Know What You Don’t Know

I considered titling this column “Where Are We Going and How Did I Get in This Handbasket?” but decided it would have been a bit unwieldy.

The term “Bolshevik” was derived from a Russian word that means “majority;” the party which bore this name went on – after some good old-fashioned 18th-Century style party warfare – to form the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics (U.S.S.R) and rule Russia and eastern Europe with a titanium fist for nearly a century.

Che Guevara Flags in Obama's Houston Office

Barack Obama won’t wear an American flag on his lapel, but on the wall of his Houston campaign office: a Cuban flag with a picture of Communist mass murderer Che Guevara. (Originally posted at Little Green Footballs Blog). Sphere: Related Content

More Things Change The More They Stay The Same In Leftist Suburb

| February 12, 2008 | 0 Comments

In some systems of Eastern thought, the doctrine of recurrence teaches that everything that has happened will happen again. Western philosophy of history drawing inspiration from a Biblical understanding of the universe does not share in the same exact idea since the Judeo-Christian worldview sees history as moving towards its ultimate conclusion in eternity. However,. traditional orthodox theism admits there is nothing new under the sun, meaning all the schemes and frauds have all been around the block a few times and will continue to plague the human condition until the good Lord decides to step and put an end to all this nonsense.

America is Running Out of Electricity

| February 10, 2008 | 0 Comments

The effort to insure Americans will not have enough electricity is deadly serious. Take, for example, the exultant news release (Jan 17) from the Rainforest Action Network, “Proposed Coal Plants Losing Steam” celebrating “59 coal plants cancelled or shelved in 2007.”

Color Me Independent!

With McCain now the undisputed frontrunner and Huckabee running interference for him, seemingly making a play for a VP position on a McCain ticket, any conservative representation in the presidential race has been effectively neutered. (And that’s not to say I’m a big fan of Romney either!) The best we can hope for is to elect a right-leaning congress capable of and willing to override a veto so as to keep WHOEVER takes the White House from doing too much damage!

The Nausea Factor

| February 6, 2008 | 0 Comments

Depending on one’s age, fortitude, gullibility, gender, et cetera, the nausea can set in early or late, but it will arrive and, with it, what is generally called wisdom. There is that quiet voice in the back of your head that says these are the same people that put the nation in the mess we’re in and we’re arguing over which one of them should dig the hole deeper.

Thoughts On the March of the McCainiacs

| February 5, 2008 | 0 Comments

For the last several years, the GOP party machine seems to have adopted the misguided attitude that the Reagan-Conservative movement is the ugly stepchild of the party – rather than being the party’s true heart, soul, and core. The party is happy to accept their support, but won’t actively pursue their interests! Evangelicals and their values are especially marginalized and vilified. The elephant is still in the Living Room, but is unspoken of! Instead, the RINO seems to have been moved to the forefront. Reagan’s NAME is frequently invoked… but his philosophies and policies are rarely emulated.

Does the New York Times Hate Meat?

| February 3, 2008 | 0 Comments

After a while, one grows accustomed to the environmental rants that appear in The New York Times. This newspaper, so often pointed to as an exemplar of the highest standards of journalism, has been repeatedly revealed to employ fantasists for whom truth and facts are mere impediments to the advancement of their obsessions and agendas.
