AlGore: How Embarrasing

Posted by Mark on October 12, 2005

I truly believe the loss of 2000 left AlGore unhinged in some way:

We would not be trying to control and intimidate the news media. We would not be routinely torturing people,” Gore said. “We would be a different country.

He has rendered himself completely irrevelant, at a time when he could have become a true Stateman within the Democrat Party. He’s become a living caricature of himself.

What Did Dr. Dobson Know and When Did He Know It?

Posted by Mark on October 12, 2005

If you really want to know the answers to those questions, click the link.
Now, if Senators Specter, Schumer, Durbin, et al want to bring Dr. Dobson to the hearings to uncover what was said between him and Karl Rove, that’s great! I think we should know what’s said behind closed doors on this important issue. So, seeing as how we are all about full disclosure, we should know what NARAL is saying to the Democratic Senators. We should know what People For the American Way are saying. I think all those memos the Democrats have recieved from their special interest groups should be released.

What? Is that the sound of silence from Senators Chuckie and Dick? Do I hear crickets chirping? Kinda thought so.

The Terrorists answer "Mother" Sheehan and Her Fellow Travelers

Posted by Mark on October 12, 2005

The letter from Zawahiri to Zarquawi is worth reading a few times. Most interesting is his mention of Vietnam. If you still think the anti-military protests of “Mother” Sheehan and her crew do no harm to the war effort, then you need to read the letter again.

Are They Copying Me?

Ok so I raised this issue this week at The Balance of Power, and I have talked about this before.

Victims Versus Victimhood

Tuesday,
October 11, 2005
By Wendy McElroy

Weeks after Hurricane Katrina, the
anguish of its victims is still painful to see. Even people hardened by years of
war and the sharp divisions within our culture, reach into their hearts and
pocketbooks at the sight of it.

Meanwhile, the claim of victimhood has
also emerged: the allegation that blacks were discriminated against in aid
efforts. But that accusation has generally met with weary dismissal.

The
difference in response has made me wonder about the distinction between a victim
and victimhood, and whether the latter may be on the political decline. … –source

Understanding this subject I think is essential to understanding our overall problems in our society and their solutions is also . We have some hard work ahead of us people, but if we want these problems to go away, we need to buckle down and do it. Take responsibility for ourselves, and work for it. That is what made us the greatest nation in the world, and it is what will keep us there. Turning our backs on ourselves will only lead to our destruction.

This whole problem is rather quite simple and infinitely complicated at the same time. ALL we need to do is look to ourselves and our community for our own strength and stop asking for a handout but rather demanding a hand-up and finding our own opportunities. Those types of things will never be truly handed to you.

But Wait! What Happened to the Predicted Civil War?

Posted by Mark on October 12, 2005

Writing a Constitution is messy. It’s why ours was written in total secrecy.
The Iraqi Constitution is being written in the full glare of journalists who have little working knowledge of Constitutions, and even less knowledge of their own national history. Sigh.

Devouring Our Own

Posted by Mark on October 12, 2005

Craig over at Red Satellites has a great look at how Conservatives are eating their own, all the cheers of the left and their willing allies in the MSM.

China in Space: The Looming Threat

Posted by Mark on October 12, 2005

China has now put two men in to space. They are well on their way to landing a man on the Moon within the next ten years. At the rate they are progressing , Mars is certainly within reach. Meanwhile, NASA continues to plod along
