Friday, November 18, 2005I like what Sen. McCain has to say in a NY Post editorial:
Imagine Iraqis, working for the new government, considering whether to join the police force, or debating whether or not to take up arms. What will they think when they read that the Senate is pressing for steps toward draw-down?Excellent.

Hoystory.com brings us this peek into the character of the North Korean regime. He points out this story from the NY Sun:
The study recounts, for example, how in November 1996 in North Korea's South Pyongan province, a unit of the North Korean army was tasked with widening a highway connecting Pyongyang to a nearby port city. While demolishing a vacant house, soldiers found in the basement, hidden between two bricks, a Bible and a list of 25 names. Among the list were individuals identified as a Christian pastor, two assistant pastors, two elders, and 20 parishioners who were identified by their occupations.Can we invade N. Korea next, please?
Monday, November 14, 2005This is a great post from the Corner today:
For all his versatility as editor, essayist, critic, controversialist and bon vivant, Mr. Buckley is widely credited as the driving force behind the intellectual coalition that drew conservatism from the fringes of American life to its center, with such side-effects as the utter collapse of the Soviet empire. "There's nothing I hoped for that wasn't reasonably achieved," declares Mr. Buckley, who will turn 80 later this month. "Now, I'm going to have a cocktail," he announces, flashing his oblique grin. "Will you join me?"I love that. It must be nice to say, "There's nothing I hoped for that wasn't reasonably achieved." That's pretty good. Even better, "Now, I'm going to have a cocktail, will you join me?"
The above quote is taken from WSJ's article about The Man. Here's another nice excerpt, this regarding the problems in France -
"It seems to me that a very hard dose of market discipline would distract the attention of the young revolutionaries from their frolics, traditional and otherwise, and my sense is that if they had to worry about how to eat, and buy food, they would stop screwing around and face reality. If these people didn't wake up in the morning thinking about what cars to burn--instead of work--they might not be having these problems."Very nicely put.
Wednesday, November 09, 2005This kind of thing makes me so mad.
There is a "growing suspicion that oil companies are taking unfair advantage," Sen. Pete Domenici, R-N.M., said, opening the hearing in a packed committee room.Moron!
"Energy prices have been too high and energy companies have realized significant increases in profits," said spokesman Scott McClellan. "It's important that the private sector be good corporate citizens and invest in the energy infrastructure and support those who are in need."Moron!
Congress is concerned that oil companies are earning 7.7% profits! That's price gouging if ever there was. Either our senators are economic ignoramuses or they want to make/keep Americans economically ignorant. I don't call that serving the public.
Every congressman should be required to take a class from Walter E. Williams. He explains why "windfall profits" are not a bad thing.
I was disappointed to learn recently that the people who make American Girl dolls and accessories have decided to take up the cause of a group called Girls, Inc. Girls, Inc. call themselves "a national nonprofit youth organization dedicated to inspiring all girls to be strong, smart, and bold." That's great. But if an organization advocates abortion for girls, they can't be all that smart.
Why do I care? Our family made a trip to Chicago last year to buy an American Girl doll for our daughter's birthday. Our girls love the dolls, the stories, the clothes. We've been happy to let them get into American Girl because of the wholesomeness of it all. Now we're having second thoughts.
I was not surprised to learn that Rosa Parks was a woman of faith, quite the opposite. But this was something new to me:
Parks wasn't the first black person to refuse to move to the back of the bus. Earlier that year, a woman had been carried off the bus clawing and kicking. Another woman had used profanity during her arrest. But the local NAACP declined to rally behind these women.
