    Hello Fossil!
    How did you come up with that so quickly???? And just another added comment, The Divine Right if Kings has NOT morphed into the Divine Right of Wealth - but then that is what Diderot said in effect.

    Perfect riposte for Casey’s remarks about the 1780s! THAT is where his sophistry may come apart.

    NOT everyone will agree with this somewhat supercilious (to me) and arguably elitist set of remarks from an atheist and major figure in the financial world. Yet the content is challenging, particularly where he takes to task the "Contract With America" and its latest permutation, as well as briefly and compellingly suggesting the route out of this mess. I do NOT agree with all he says, but his points bear serious consideration. "Liberte, Egalite, Fraternite!" - Not.

    I certainly agree - and by way of a true analogous situation that I learned about from a friend in MI-6 back at the time of Beirut’s agonies - here’s a thought. Some may remember that there were a lot of kidnappings and some murders of westerners by the Islamic crowd there then, and what most people don’t know is that 4 or so Russians were kidnapped, and one killed in the process. Since these were basically Iranian incited thugs, the Russians sent a major figure to Qom to talk to the Mullahs. It is said by my friend who knew about this, that the conversation was short and sweet. Something like: “if you people intend to rule over a nation of slag, just keep on targeting Russians!” Not another Russian was touched or hurt.

    This attitude, which is indisputably correct, when dealing with thugs and Gestapo-style behavior - NO deals, NO apologies, NO adopting specialist permissive laws. NO SURRENDER! It works - Bloomberg and Co should all be jettisoned..

    Consistent with the more outspoken critics of the Islamization of America, the author, a Constitutional Scholar, points out that IN FACT Islam is NOT a religion, but rather a theocratic imperialism seeking total hegemony over the world's peoples. ALL OF THIS IS UNCONSTITUTIONAL, no matter what Big Sis, Holder and various other regrettably uniformed thugs are claiming.

    Great article to expose these hypocrites. "Its always all about the money", the fanatical Ideology and the hypocritical agenda of the big money (tax exempt) ENGO's (Enviro Non Gov't Organizations). What is so bizarre about most of these ENGOs is that while stating their purpose is to help mankind, their listed cross-purpose (mission statements) all include "population-control". Their goals are to reduce the earth's population, some actually reveal by several billions of people but they don't want to be accused of funding or promoting genocide so they disguise it.

    Now THIS is one of the best brief expositions of what is fundamentally wrong - and dangerous - with the PC and Relativistic crowd, on the subject of the Religion of Peace - along with the various organs of Government GROUPTHINK that I have seen. It is very worth while reading, and sending a copy to the Congressional numbnuts that allegedly represent the People.

    I disagree,
    1) She believes along with her former patron on the Supreme Court, Thurgood Marshall, that the Court should be able to order ANY ASPECT OF A CITIZEN’s LIFE
    2) She effectively refutes the First Amendment
    3) She has tried to hide her antipathy for the Second Amendment, but failed
    4) She has had ZERO experience as a Judge, and as this article points out has NO concern with politicizing and effectively LYING to the Supreme Court - which whatever is said about Klayman in the past (all of which I do not agree with) if he pulls this off should likely get the CMoH.
    5) To date has exhibited a totally NON-judicial approach to the Constitution, effectively stating that ‘activist’ judicial legislation from the bench is a part of her proposed job
    There are a number of other compelling reasons why this alleged woman could not be LESS qualified for the position - not to speak of the extraordinary harm she could do to the country during her tenure.

    I thought it was funny - in FReeper language - “HUMOUR” - I still think it’s funny (and likely appropriate). After all the poor woman allegedly only has half a brain - and that question was a real challenge. There’s got to be something worth laughing at in all of this...

    A noted psychiatrist was a guest speaker at an academic function where Nancy Pelosi happened to appear. Ms Pelosi took the opportunity to schmooze the good doctor a bit and asked him a question with which he was most at ease.

    'Would you mind telling me, Doctor,' she asked, 'how you detect a mental deficiency in somebody who appears completely normal?'

    'Nothing is easier,' he replied. 'You ask a simple question which anyone should answer with no trouble. If the person hesitates, that puts you on the track..'

    'What sort of question?' asked Pelosi.

    Well, you might ask, 'Captain Cook made three trips around the world and died during one of them. Which one?''

    Pelosi thought a moment, and then said with a nervous laugh, 'You wouldn't happen to have another example would you? I must confess I don't know much about history.'

    Daniel Pipes, PhD needs no introduction to most Freepers, but in this brief and pointed article highlights the almost indescribably stupid, which is to say - Obamaesque - policy of smarming the Muslim world through NASA into thinking that Big Brother loves them! Give me a break!!!

    I sent the following to the paper:......
    While amusement that segues into irritation has long since become my reaction to efforts by the now defunct but once honorable profession of journalism, Simpson’s rather tawdry effort to exhibit both a liberal and critical angle to America’s present troubles requires a response. The fact that Simpson’s knowledge of the CO2 and anthropogenic warming issues are on par with his crudely biased statements about conservatives and their aims no longer surprises any intelligent reader. But the astoundingly off-base remark about the alleged president as being “the most gifted in several generations” defies belief. That the Goad & Snail still pays these hacks to produce such absurd, biased and misleading efforts is disgraceful.

    A frank and highly relevant statement for Americans who forget their Econ 101, and the changes being wrought post G-20 (hopefully). JB Williams is noted for cutting to the heart of the matter - and he certainly does here...
