Reposted from October 2007.BUSH, CUBA & THE LIVES OF OTHERSJay Nordlinger's column is one of the few places I've seen extensive coverage of President Bush's little-mentioned, must read speech in which he dares to talk plainly about the much distorted realities of Cuba and communism.Says Bush:Cuba's rulers promised individual liberty. Instead they denied their citizens basic rights that the free world takes for granted. In Cuba it is illegal to change jobs, to change houses, to … [Read more...]

Obama: Yes to Iran, No to WFTV

A reader who asks for anonymity but refers to himself as "a product of Pittsburgh Steelworkers" writes about his discomfort over Obama:Dear Anchoress:An observation about Barack Obama that bothers me enough to write somebody an email.Barack Obama said during the first debate that he would sit down and talk to Iran, a state sponsor of terrorism, without preconditions because he did not believe in the notion that by not talking to people we are somehow punishing them.Then when a Florida TV … [Read more...]

Press coverage negative on McCain?

If this does not frighten you — regardless of your political affiliation — then you deserve what this man will deliver with both houses of Congress, a filibuster-proof Senate, and, to quote Senator Obama again, “a righteous wind at our backs.”That a man so clear in his understanding of the Constitution, and so opposed to the basic tenets it provides against tyranny and the abuse of power, can run for president of the United States is shameful enough.We’re just getting started.Bill Whittle, to … [Read more...]

Our Unfree Press – -UPDATED

I have written often and often about the dangers a nation faces when its press is not free:It’s so tiring, you almost don’t want to bother saying it. But we have to keep pointing it out, this mad descent of the press, and not grow weary or complacent. The only way to keep the press honest is to keep it accountable; that is our responsibility - yours and mine - a free press is an unencumbered, detached, open and honest press. And we must have it; we must insist that our press be free - una … [Read more...]

In my email, today, One Baby, One Vote:49 Million American babies have been aborted since 1973; 25 million would have been old enough to vote in this election.Read on...I'm still on the mat but trying to get up. Check back through the day. I'll try to at least amuse...as with this bit of zydeco.And, oh, yeah, did you read about the new cabinet-level offices planned under Obama?

Going after Joe the Plumber & America w/ UPDATES!

To my way of thinking, Joe the Plumber - singing the psalm of the common man, and representing the views of the middle class and what we once used to call "the Silent Majority" - has completely terrified the left, the Obama camp and the press.And so...he must be destroyed. So what happens to Mr. Wurzelbacher for expressing his views?Reports in the mainstream media appear claiming that he is unlicensed (even though he doesn't need one as an employee of a business or as a contractor working on … [Read more...]

Presumption, Illusions & Reality

Apparently, the Obama - "they better not bring my wife into it" - Campaign has decided that it's okay to go after spouses, now - translate that: just John McCain's spouse. Confederate Yankee notes some out-and-out lying at the Washington Post.I'm sure the reporter just doesn't know how to um...investigate stuff, like that blogger does.Well, who has time to check facts when there is a victory party to plan or winnings to be collected 'way before the fact.The Obama team is sending the … [Read more...]

Live-blogging the final Debate?

No, not me. I haven't the stamina to watch-and-blog because I get too anal about trying to get "everything." Not worth making myself nuts over. While you're waiting though, take a look at what the Ohio Secretary of State thinks is Democracy in Action, and get a load of Gay Patriot's state-by-state electoral fraud post. It ain't pretty.I see the press already has their talking points from Lord Obama.If you're looking for liveblogging, it's usually fun times for that over at Althouse's … [Read more...]

Ohio: A wee Banana Republic?

Yes, an obvious exaggeration, but this Secretary of State, Jennifer Brunner, needs to lose her job, yesterday.Almost as if she anticipated a court ruling a few hours later, Ohio Secretary of State Jennifer Brunner promised yesterday to give county elections workers access to a list of possibly problematic voter registrations.She'd been sitting on them, you see. Something like 200,000 of them.She's been told to provide by Friday; says can't do it until Monday at least. Gotta buy … [Read more...]

Dirty Bombs, Dirty Elections; a roundup

Okay, enough fun and games with the pie recipes - here's a roundup of everything I'm finding interesting today. A smorgasboard.Bill Ayers is just a really nice guy in the neighborhood.I personally think McCain gains nothing in going after Ayers - particularly not in this debate where, having challenged McCain to say something "to my face" - Obama will be loaded for bear and ready to shoot down any concerns with appropriate (and mild-sounding) spin. But I'm sure McCain - his sense of honor … [Read more...]
