The Racism Myth

Listening to the radio the other day, I heard a professor from one of America's more distinguished institutions of higher learning explain what is motivating the "angry mobs" who have been raucously denouncing President Obama's health-care plans: racism. When asked for evidence, the professor offered this: Some of the angry people made it plain that [...]

Dealing Cynically with the U.S. Constitution

It's funny the things that sometimes irritate you. At the moment I am greatly -- some might say unreasonably -- irritated by a bill that passed the United States last week.

Both lost three children. [...]

The UL Takeover of the Democratic Party

If Barack Obama defeats Hillary Clinton, this will of course be the first time an African-American has been the presidential nominee of a major party. Equally important, and perhaps even more important in the long run, it will mean that the national Democratic Party has finally and fully been taken over by the "move-on-dot-org" wing [...]
