RICHARD SPERTZEL who was head of the biological-weapons section of Unscom from 1994-99, writes essentially; Of course Iraq had banned weapons, lots of them, and of course the UN wasn’t going to find them. Despite the recent discovery of plans and parts for a uranium-enrichment centrifuge, some presidential candidates have accused the Bush administration of [...]
From the opinion Journal today: Karl Rove must be jumping for joy. Apart from the Sharptonkucinichmoseleybraun also-rans, Dean is the best opponent the Republicans could possibly hope for. Can anyone imagine such an intemperate lefty winning a single “red” state? If President Bush merely carries the same states he did last time around, he has [...]
A reader in Florida just forwarded me a note, telling me about how Ann Coulter was being asked on “the View” if she had ever seen two women having sex. Says our Annie: “Not since I saw Katie Couric interview Hillary Clinton.” Best laugh I’ve had in days, that one. Personally, I’m looking forward to [...]
Andrew Sullivan has it part-right…(He usually does have it at least part right)… when he speaks of Judge Scalia. He says, in part: JUDICIAL TEMPERAMENT: It’s odd, isn’t it, that in Supreme Court debates, we always hear an enormous amount about various judges’ “philosophy,” their paper-trail, their alleged politics, and so on. Much of this [...]
Mona Charen’s new column is up on JWR. It’s almost a perfect follow on to my comments of the other day regarding illegal immigration. It’s well written, and cuts right to the heart of the matter. With California reporting it’s just hours away from Financial colapse perhaps it’s time we as a nation take a [...]
Neil Boortz and I have many disageements. His take here, is one of them. GAY MARRIAGE? I understand that a lot of Americans are now upset that the recent Supreme Court decision in Lawrence v. Texas is going to open the doors to the state sanctioning of gay marriages. I do wonder, though, why these [...]
Someone on the Free Republic website notes that the Associated Press–weeks after misquoting Rick Santorum on the issue of sodomy–has also misquoted Antonin Scalia on the same issue. From the AP story: “The court has taken sides in the culture war,” Scalia said, adding that he has “nothing against homosexuals.” Here is the real quote [...]
From Usenet this morning. I don’t know as I could say this better. >>> I haven’t written much about the ongoing brouhaha over whether President Bush “lied” America into the war with Iraq. The main reason for my silence is that it’s a monstrously stupid argument -and usually deliberately so. But I have better reasons [...]
I’m afraid this kind of thing is getting to be more and more common. The professor involved should be publicly shot, in my view. As it is, the university issued a statement from Prof Wilkie apologising to Mr Duvshani and making clear that he was not speaking on behalf of Oxford. The release reported that [...]
The papers picking up Dowd’s column are starting to speak up. Here’s another.
I think it pretty clear that he was, as I’ve stated repeatedly in my coumns. This editorial gives indication others may have caught on to that idea, as well.
The national DO NOT CALL list is growing… 635000 numbers on the first day. [DETAILS] A nice idea, but was the government’s involvement needed, here? (Shrug) As such things go, I suppsoe the cost is smaller than most.
The new Bit is up. A rather extensive ripping apart of the recent race bias cases, as the teasers suggest. I don’t question their goals, really… just the methods.
Sad news has reached me here regarding the death of former South Carolina Senator Strom Thurmond. Sad, because it reached me by way of a liberal know-nothing, crowing about how ‘his racist ass was dead’. All I could do was remind the fool that Thurmond was the first senator to have a black man on [...]
0626031934- Rochester NY—- In 1964, we here in the US passed a far-reaching civil rights act, which reaffirmed that all men are created equal, and are to be treated as such, regardless of the individual’s race, color, religion, sex, or national origin. It made such discrimination unlawful. Period. The new law made racism unlawful regardless [...]
