Bush Promotes Hillary’s Policies

Some conservatives are insisting that the Bush Administration’s capitulation to the global warming alarmists at the Bali, Indonesia, U.N. Climate Change Conference was either meaningless or else a victory!  Such claims represent knee-jerk apologies for the Bush Administration. The spin has got to stop. The sad fact is that Bush endorsed Hillary’s position on climate change at the Bali event.

Christmas contemplations

The Beatles were right when they sang money can’t buy me love.  I guess if they’d wanted to be more precise, they’d have crooned that money can’t buy authentic love although in some instances it can acquire a reasonable facsimile of it, but that might have been tough to rhyme.

The Princeton Hate Crime That Wasn’t

The Jena 6 case exploded over night when the Media imagined they had a “race hate” issue on their hands. They did the same with the Duke Rape case.

Hillary: Growing Old Quickly, and Without Grace

Take a good look at a recent photograph of Hillary Clinton. Notice the bags under her bloated eyes, the turkey giblet developing below her neck, the heavy wrinkles and deep lines all across her forehead and face.

Strangulating Freedom of Expression: Prophet’s Footprints Reach the West

Mr. Tahir Aslam Gora, driven out of Pakistan for his critical-of-Islam writings, wrote in The Hamilton Spectator December 13 that the freedom of expression has deteriorated even in the liberal West from what it was in Mecca during Prophet Muhammad’s time 15 centuries ago. Referring to the example of hounding of Bangladeshi humanist author Taslima Nasrin by an unruly Muslim mob and an Islamic death-fatwa on her head, in Hindu-majority secular India, he wrote:

Is Mike Huckabee Running for President or Pastor?

Republican candidate Mike Huckabee’s special Christmas campaign message is a brilliant attempt at reminding voters which candidate would make the best Pastor-in-Chief. But is it likely to make him Commander-in-Chief?

Is America Cheap on ‘Humanitarian Aid’?

So, we are the “ugly American,” we’re always told. But to whom do they come running when they need help? Italy, France, maybe? Hardly. Still, they love to beat up on the US, and unfortunately our MSM is only too happy to act the echo chamber for anti-Americanism.

Our Underground Economy

On Tuesday of this week, I received an email from Enterprise Rent-A-Car entirely in Spanish. This was followed by a second email (en inglés esta vez) which apologized for the previous email and offered me a 15% discount on my next rental. As nice as it is to receive a discount on an expensive service, these emails raise two questions: why is Enterprise sending emails in Spanish to its customers, and why the apology and discount offer?

We Can’t Win By Focusing on Not Losing!

I have but one message for my fellow conservatives. If we focus all of our attention on “not losing” the 2008 election, there is no way we can win the 2008 election.

Why is Public Education Failing?

It’s a fact. Most of today’s school children can barely read or write. They can’t perform math problems without a calculator. They barely know who the Founding Fathers were and know even less of their achievements. Most can’t tell you the name of the President of the United States. It’s pure and simple; today’s children aren’t coming out of school with an academics education.
