Coherence from Cohen, some sobering questions from Richard Cohen no Egypt, from the Washington Post: Egypt’s problems are immense. It has a population it cannot support, a standard of living that is stagnant and a self-image as leader of the (Sunni) Arab world that does not, really, correspond to reality. It also lacks the civic […]

Obama dithered while the Gulf burned, a time line from Doug Ross: Perhaps if the oil breached the Louisiana levees, then caught on fire, and then turned New Orleans into a Dresden-like inferno, the President would stop campaigning for a couple of days and actually pay attention to his own, personal Katrina.  Even The New […]

Well, now of course they’ve got the power. They’ve got control, and they’ve taken control of the car companies as well. As yet, however, they can’t force me to buy something, though I don’t doubt that’s coming.  They can by means of pollution standards, force my vehicle off the road eventually.  Now do you begin to understand why this ‘global warming’ nonsense has been so important the last decade or so?
