Why Does Sarkozy Trust Chavez?

In order to have success in politics one must have some ability to gauge the public mood.  Exhibit A: French President Nicolas Sarkozy.  France is well known for its strikes.  It is not unusual for the entire country to shut down on a whim from its unions.  This has made French politicians both on the Left and the Right reluctant to address the Fifth Republic’s bloated welfare state.  It was only a matter of time before the unions would test the resolve of Sarkozy.

‘Not In My Womb’ New Cry of Environmental Extremists 

image—Satire—
Goreism is a newly discovered disease that impairs one’s judgment, dulls the senses, and replaces rational thought with leftist pap. Known in old school medicine as liberalism, Goreism is actually far more potent and aggressive than the garden-variety version of leftist insanity.

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.

Uncovering America by Horseback

Bill Inman, #Not since Roy Rogers and “Trigger” have a cowboy and his loyal horse loomed so largely on the American landscape.

But Roy and the beloved Trigger are long gone, although their legend lives on at the Roy Rogers/Dale Evans Museum, which Roy Rogers Jr. who manages it says draws some 200,000 visitors each year. 

  After Trigger died at age 33, his hide was stretched over a plastic likeness and put on display. And as the official Roy Rogers/Dale Evans website points out, “Trigger is mounted and not stuffed”.

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.

Multiculturalism Exposes the US to Terrorism

The people of the United States, for all practical purposes, like to believe we are fair-minded. We believe that everyone should get a fair shot. Most of us believe that if you work hard you should get ahead. Many of us have even embraced the ever advancing multiculturalism counter-culture, which is completely antithetical to the concept of E Pluribus Unum; “Out of many, one.” With regard to the latter, vindication has come to those of us who believe we are fair-minded while being opposed to the “Balkanization” the United States.

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.

Benazir Bhutto can identify jihadist carry bomb-strapped child?

Given the unbridled ambitions of Benazir Bhutto to reclaim power in Pakistan, do investigators in Bhutto’s Pakistan People’s Party have any credibility in their statement that the bomb intended to kill their leader was strapped to a one-year-old child?
