As you may have gathered from the title to this piece, I am no fan of Nelson Mandela. I never have been. Mr. Mandela was a communist — and a terrorist — and I have no sympathy for either. Consider this written by Colin Freeman, and Jane Flanagan in Cape Town, South Africa, for The […]

Chanting climate change advocacy groups want non-compliant businesses and industries found guilty of crimes against the planet, so that condemned industrialists can be hunted down and punished. This is destructive of reasoned scientific debate, affordable energy and modern civilization.
The essential problem is that both the U.S. dollar and the Euro are just so much paper, despite the promises and guarantees that they will be honored as real money. The trick has been to keep everyone believing there are sufficient real assets to back up those promises.
Friday, December 15, 1939, was an icy-cold day in Atlanta, Georgia but folks warmed to the great excitement surrounding the premiere of “Gone with the Wind” A Selznick International Pictures “Technicolor” Production of the Metro Goldwyn Mayer Release of Margaret Mitchell’s novel about the Old South at the Loews Grand Theater.

We are fighting a powerful, invisible enemy with the useless weapons of a shredded Constitution and loud complaints. We listen to the interminable remedial rhetoric of political candidates which seems to provide solutions but when the candidate is elected the promises are forgotten and the office holder quickly cow tows to the mysterious powers that seek to destroy us. It has been repeated over and over again with the same results.
If, as some are suggesting, we are about to have a global financial collapse, we’ll get a “do over.” It won’t be pretty and it is going to hurt like the dickens, but if there is a bright side to an economic apocalypse, it may be that we will get a chance to clean our government of the socialists, Marxists, progressives, and left-wing liberals that spent us into this mess.
Over the years, more and more power has been concentrated in the federal government and it requires the dismantlement and elimination of several of its components. Americans need to say no to the Departments of Education, Energy, along with the Department of Housing and Urban Development. These are all functions previously addressed by the states.
The early civil right movement was supported and encouraged by the GOP and conservatives. Civil rights legislation was OPPOSED and even filibustered not by those evil right-wing conservatives, but by the LEFT WING Democrats! (The filibuster of the Civil Rights Act was led by 18 Democrats and a lone Republican, and the HIGHLIGHT of the show was Senator Robert Byrd!)
Ever since America booted Russia out of the northwest territory of America, Russia has had a chip on its shoulder… at least, as far as America is concerned. We go through cycles with Russia in which Russia loves America for a while, and then Russia hates America for a while. The cycle seems to continue ad infinitum.
The last few weeks have seen the Republican nominees fall under all sorts of attacks from the liberal media about their so called “scandals” and “blunders.” It’s been a non-stop barrage of reports trying to undermine the strength of the candidates and the party. Yet the Republicans have managed to stay strong throughout, showing no signs that the attacks have affected them mentally.
As a former broadcaster, I have to tell you, in my view; the debates are more for the broadcasters and press than for the electorate. Its sort of like the Oscars — Hollywood stars salivating and honoring themselves while preening before the cameras assuring us all of their deep concern for their fellowman. Malarkey! Hogwash!
There are few opportunities for legislation that holds the prospect of gain for EVERYONE who supports it, regardless of party or ideology – but amazingly, the repeal of ObamaCare offers that very opportunity, if our elected officials would but examine the possibilities!!
By the weekend, news reports indicated that the congressional Super Committee was closing in on an agreement. The deficit-cutting panel is mandated to trim at least $1.2 trillion in federal spending over the next ten years and, failing an agreement, automatic cuts would begin in 2013, after the national elections.
In 1983, five years after her death, Mead’s scientific fraud was exposed to the world by anthropologist Derek Freeman who argued that “the main conclusions of ‘Coming of Age in Samoa’ are, in reality, the figments of an anthropological myth which is deeply at variance with the facts of Samoan ethnography and history.”
