The Iraqi Tar Baby

As one of those who thought the invasion of Iraq was a good thing to do for both humanitarian and strategic reasons, the flow of books by those who went there after the invasion or by Iraqis who did their best to put it on the path to democracy all tell essentially the same story.

Bill Clinton and Al Gore’s ‘Phony Soldiers’

Talker Rush Limbaugh is under fire for being falsely accused of saying that any U.S. soldier who comes out against the war is a “phony soldier.” He did not, of course, say such a thing. Rush was actually talking about a man named Jesse Macbeth, who was touted by anti-war activists as a soldier who came out against the war, but it turned out later that Macbeth never served in the military at all.

“E Pluribus Unum”

My sons are both in high school and are under the common teenage misconception that they are liberals. They parrot what they hear from their teachers, their friends at school, and their father from my first marriage. They don’t necessarily want to engage me in debate about my conservative beliefs.

Anusitis and Other Causes of Rectal Bleeding

“Why didn’t you come to see me earlier? It could have saved you months of worry,” I recently asked a patient. She had delayed seeing me because of rectal bleeding and she was terrified I’d tell her the diagnosis was cancer. Yet her only complaint was anusitis, an often overlooked rectal condition. But whether it’s anusitis or a serious problem a cardinal rule is never, never ignore rectal bleeding.

Barroso and Bilderberg to the Rescue of Belgium. Will the UK Be Ousted from the EU

Today, day 119 since the general elections of June 10th, Belgium still has no government. Belgium’s politicians, however, expect the country to have a new government soon. Yves Leterme, the leader of the Flemish Christian-Democrats, who last week was reappointed as “formateur” (Prime Minister Designate) by Belgium’s King Albert II, knows that he has no choice but to succeed in forming a government. If he does not, his political career is over. Mr Leterme, who won last June’s elections on a pro-Flemish platform, will have to withdraw all the Flemish demands because the Walloon politicians have vetoed them all.

Fall Guy

If spring is the budding season, summer the season of sunshine and roses, and winter, except for snow-bunnies, the season that drives us southward, or indoors, then, autumn, dazzling in its cloak of blazing colors, is a season for all reasons.

The central reasons why we are opposed to MMP

By Peter Woolstencroft

Ontarians on October 10th will make an important choice between the existing first-past-the post (FPTP) electoral system and the proposed replacement, MMP (mixed -member proportional). It has been said that FPTP has problems. We are   democratic reformers, but the proposed system is more flawed and will create even more problems.

Brainy Republicans Support U.N. Sea Treaty

“If Democrats had any brains, they’d be Republicans.” This is the new partisan blast from Ann Coulter. One major problem with her thesis is that her book is being released at a time when members of the Bush Administration are currently joining with liberal Senate Democrats in trying to rush through the dangerous U.N. Law of the Sea Treaty.

Obama Could Learn Plenty About Patriotism from Jim Broussard

imageTo the best of my knowledge, veteran Jim Broussard has never been, and is not now, a candidate for the U.S. presidency. I have no idea if Broussard is a Democrat, Republican, or Independent, or if he is even registered to vote.

Nonetheless, one thing is certain about the Reno, Nevada citizen: He has more understanding of, and respect for, patriotism and the American flag than Democrat presidential candidate Barack Obama.

U.N. should keep tyrants off the stage

In Burma, an ominous silence has fallen. The ruling military junta has been answering the peaceful protests of dissident monks with beatings, arrests and untold killings. Even United Nations Human Rights Commissioner Louise Arbour, too often reticent about criticizing tyrannies, issued a statement Monday deploring the repression and asserting that in the current crackdown, Burma’s protesters “have become invisible.”
