An interesting post at Q & O this morning. David Warren, writing in the Ottawa Ciitzen, takes a look at some of the “Gorbachev/Obama” comparisons that some are doing and finds them wanting.  But, he does find one thing the two men seem to share in common.  Something he calls a characteristic of the post-modern […]

Yeah, I saw some of it last night. I turned it n last night just in time to see that thing under Bubba’s big red WC Feilds nose, say to the country what a great president he’d been. My reaction: (gag!) Apparently Bubba doesn’t remember Somolia, where under his great leadership we turned tail and […]

Hume last night: Some recent surveys suggest a striking gap between liberals and conservatives on the issue of honesty. Polling by an organization called The World Values Survey posed the question, “Is it OK to cheat on your taxes?” Fifty-seven percent of those who described themselves as “very liberal” said “yes”, compared with only 20 […]

Fran at Eternity Road makes an interesting point: Let us have a look at an AP story from yesterday, Lawmakers Crack Down on Abusive Teachers.  As always, I encourage you to read the whole article for yourself and draw your own conclusions, but it’s fun to select a few passages and add a bit of […]

I see you, Brian, and no, I do not agree that I’m being pushed off principle, here. I reject the premise that the guy was innocent on several levels, but the most important of them is that I reject and dismiss the premise that the law is not legit in a free society, which was […]

Scott Ott is formidable when he decides to get serious in his writing, as he does here. The assassination of Benazir Bhutto has put on notice the leaders of every European nation. Your secularism, your democracy will not stand. The growing Muslim populations in your own lands that you have done so much to tolerate, […]

Fox news is running what I’ll call the outrage of the week: School officials say the Ocala 5th grader had brought a piece of steak for her lunch, and a four and a half inch steak knife with which to cut it. According to the report, a couple of teachers took the utensil and called […]

There’s an interesting discussion going on and just now a cross blog discussion about religion and politics.  The interested parties I’ve noticed thus far are Cassandra over at Villainous Company, and Bruce McQuain over at Q&O. In turn, the discussion extends to Charles Krauthammer, and Peggy Noonan. I urge you to read all four articles […]

So why do patriachal societies continue to exist?   Because they work.   And because they better accomadate the different desires of the two sexes.   From the gender feminist capital of the World, Sweden, by Sue Reid, Daily Mail(UK): The backlash in Sweden against Government interference in family and work life is based on women’s realisation that they […]

John Hawkins: For whatever reason, more than a few Liberals who aren’t very religious have a bizarre, paranoid view of Christians that is so out of touch with reality that they make the Truthers look sane. Just to name one example, take a look at Sam Donaldson, who said this on December 9th, “Talk about […]

Noted in passing from The Politico; “I give all praise and honor to God,” Obama began. “Look at the day the Lord has made.”… “We need a leader who’s going to touch our souls. Who’s going to make us feel differently about one another. Who’s going to remind us that we are one another’s keepers. […]

John Hawkins at Right Wing News quotes a reader at The Corner who mused… “You know what would really be funny? If Romney declares on Thursday that he has been saved and shows a YouTube clip of his baptism, and a hearty endorsement by Dr. Dobson.” — From a reader at The Corner Yeah, well… […]

Steyn: Up north, the Canadian Islamic Congress announced the other day that at least two of Canada’s “Human Rights Commissions” – one federal, one provincial – had agreed to hear their complaints that their “human rights” had been breached by this “flagrantly Islamophobic” excerpt from my book, as published in the country’s bestselling news magazine, […]

Rich Lowry…. who I have some stout dispute on in terms of the Fair Tax issue (It’d help if Rich actually did some research on the matter) gets it pretty much spot on here, as regards the rise of social conservatives: Remember how evangelicals had “matured”? Remember how the war on terror had replaced social […]

Curt, Flopping Aces, notes:   The religion of peace strikes again in France.  This time a couple kids killed themselves by riding stolen mopeds into a police car and the Muslims riot: A cynic such as myself might think the Moslem are trying to exempt themselves from the consequences of the law,  much like some American […]
