Can the Tortoise Conquer the Hare Again?

Mayor Giuliani left the gate early, sprinting towards the finish line off in a distance. Thompson waited, plotted and planned, leaving the gate last, well behind all others in the race, seeming completely unconcerned with the dashing hare, as he methodically set one foot firmly ahead of the other.

Tom Brokaw’s Glass House

The newspaper industry got a cold dose of impending reality from former NBC news anchor Tom Brokaw, in comments he made at a promotion of his recent book.  Concerning the Washington Post, he said, “It’ll be probably digital 10 years from now.”  Digital as in paperless. Why would he say that?

AP: Santa Cruz Sheriff Says Illegals Aren’t ‘Criminals’?

The AP has used the somewhat heartwarming tale of an illegal alien who found an American boy and his mother suffering from a car accident in the Arizona desert and stayed with them until help arrived as an excuse to plead that illegals aren’t “criminals” and should somehow be given a break.

Newspapers Are Guardians of Truth, so say ‘Journalists’

Last Sunday, from the pen of editorial page editor of the Seattle Times James Vesely, we got a pretty good indication of why the new media of the Internet is so swiftly taking over the traditional role of the old, dead tree media. One word describes it: arrogance. It is an arrogance of the assumed supremacy of the old media and the air of entitlement that it holds dear.

Family Holiday Gatherings: Joyous Occasions, Or Subtle Torture?

Caution: Was Your Holiday Turkey Imported from China?

Made in ChinaIt is scandalous enough that George W. Bush has refused to secure America’s borders and enforce U.S. immigration laws during time of war, said malfeasance leading to millions of illegal aliens stealing public services from American taxpayers and hastening the decline of the world’s sole superpower into a third world abyss.

Of equal outrage is the fact that this administration also refuses to protect the American people from tainted and dangerous products imported from China. This further abdication of constitutional responsibility should seal Bush’s legacy as the “worst President” in U.S. history.

The War on God and Thanksgiving

The War on God was a book written in the 1930s describing the state of religious faith in Germany.  This book note only describes the hatred which the still young Nazi government and party had for Christianity, but more important it described how Christianity had declined in Germany before the Nazis came to power.  This opinion was reflected in many other books written during this period by other observers from free democracies writing about the condition of Germany before and after the Nazi rise to power.

The Curiously Discreet Candidate

It would appear that the 2008 presidential elections will most likely hinge not on the stances candidates have assured their voters they have publicly taken on any given issue, but on the stances voters hope their candidates are already sworn to in secret. The correct assumption is that wise candidates understandably avoid revealing their most deeply held convictions to the general public, lest they become vulnerable to a barrage of tailored made smear tactics from the dominant fringe on either side of the political aisle, and are effectively rendered unelectable.

The Marines: Premier Expeditionary Warriors

MarinesWriting in the Washington Post this past September,  the usually insightful   columnist George Will claimed that
America’s ongoing messy missions in Iraq and elsewhere had generated tension within its Corps of Marines. “No service was better prepared than the Marines for the challenges of post-invasion Iraq,” he concluded, “yet no service has found its mission there more unsettling to its sense of itself.”

It is not that the Corps did not want to be in the fight, or that it had better things to do. But its naval character has taken a back seat to fighting the virulent resistance in an extended land campaign,  and some core competencies are waning. Today,  on the institution’s 232nd birthday,  we should amplify   Mr.  Will’s observations with a deeper understanding of the Corps’ past and most likely future.

Bush Pardons Turkeys while Eagles Remain Caged

Fellow Americans and patriots, I would give anything if I could write a syrupy-sweet, all-is-fine Thanksgiving Day message for you today. However, I have always taken pride in my endeavor of not being politically correct, but rather just “correct.” Yes, we do have every reason to be thankful for our health, our livelihoods, and our loved ones.

It’s Illegal Immigration, Stupid: Why McCain and Hillary Will Never Be President

The next round of polling data will show a dramatic drop in support for the candidacy of Hillary Clinton for President. We know this because of the precedent set by John McCain and Senators Harry Reid, Lindsay Graham, and Trent Lott who all experienced massive drops in their support levels after making the mistake of coming out in favor of assistance for or amnesty for illegal aliens instead of enforcement of our existing immigration laws.
