  • Who Goes Obama?

    For those interested in what Thompson had to say, I would (very highly) recommend her book “Dorothy Thompson’s Political Guide”. In this short, well-written effort, she distinguishes true liberal thought from collectivism in any of its manifestations.

    Dare I say it would make a fine Christmas gift for students, perhaps especially those prone to confusing Obama’s spirit-crushing, soul-draining, idiocy with actual social progress?

    Mrs. Don-o:

    I must compliment you. You have hit the nail of soul-less sex directly on its head: “The expansion of insignificance”...

    May the begetting of children and lifelong vows prevail!

  • Is Algebra Necessary?

    “...more creative ways to teach it.” AMEN. I struggled (got D's) in both HS and JC Algebra. It wasn't until I took physics at a genuine University that I understood why: Algebra (excepting the word problems) had to me been like a language with nothing to say. Once I realized that algebra (and all of math, really) is the language of the sciences (and thus, the key to solving some very, very interesting puzzles), I was hooked.

    If I had been taught algebra in the context of physics in HS, it would have clicked. Just the way my brain is wired.

    Commenting on the foolishness of the original article, I'd have a few years ago been shocked by such “thinking”. No longer. Our nation seems now to be overrun (or run) by a bunch of “big thinkers” from junior high who, because they've had smoke blow up their rears for so long, honestly believe that any opinion they happen to develop is a) correct, and b) beyond brilliant.

  • Pelosi: Amend the First Amendment

    The introduction of such notions to The People via the media is fundamental to attainment of the ultimate goal. While there is far, far too much money involved in politics (from all sources, but in many cases, largely unions, etc.), a revision to “improve” our Constitution's First (and possibly most vital) Amendment would in all probability serve only to make matters much worse. However, if a leader of our Congress suggests that such a dramatic solution should be considered a valid, reasonable response to a timeless problem, The People will be numbed, and finally, unresponsive, when the End Game begins. Ms. Pelosi’s spew is not hysterical or idiotic; it is cool and very purposeful.
  • History Shows: Odds Against Obama's Second Term

    Obama will win, and by a landslide. We are living in a country whose people are no longer guided by wisdom, and who, in fact, disdain it. The population has been intentionally dumbed-down, as evidenced by the fact that it elected Obama to office. There is no opposition to his rule; if there were, there would be legitimate candidates being offered up from the Republican “side”, which I am beginning to doubt exists any longer.

    Thanks for the post, Dude. A most remarkable man, that Mr. Reagan.

    A worthy forward to our “liberal” friends (I consider myself liberal, but by today’s standards am considered a right-wing nut-job...).

    One can only imagine the contrast between this speech and the one our current President will someday, hopefully sooner than later, give.

    By the time we, as a nation (as opposed to us here on FR...), begin to think “this is too bizarre to be happening”, it will be far too late. What seems to be happening, however, is that spectacularly bizarre things keep happening, and we just don’t seem, as a nation, to give a damn. Far more important, it would seem are skank-filled “reality” shows (unlike many others, I actually believe such shows DO capture the reality lived by a great number of people...) and televised sports (which I, too, confess to enjoying perhaps a bit too much...). Unfortunately, we have passed the point of no return, and the transformation/disfiguration of our culture will continue apace.

  • Britain: Islam In, Christianity Out

    A telling graphic. Absent Faith, Western Civilization has fallen. WIth Faith (however misdirected it may be), the Islamic World has filled the void. “Ultimately, the Self proves too limiting for sustained enthusiasm.” Our fascination with Self has drained enthusiasm for life from our culture, and dimmed our interest in the future; hence, little interest in the building of families.

    For Christmas: German Soul Food!!!

    A long family tradition: The Kale Pot. Kale, various German sausages (the more disgusting, the better...), ham, potatoes. A little vinegar, some home-made mustard, a beer, and one is all set. Great for large parties/families. (I want some right now!)

    Cain.

    While successful foreign policy requires that our President have a firm grasp on the inner workings of other nations, it also requires that these same nations have a clear understanding of where our President stands, and that he stand for the U.S.

    The first can be acquired; the second is a matter of character and integrity, and so cannot. With Cain’s executive style and intelligence, any possible shortcomings in the global arena would be quickly overcome, and are thus of limited concern to me.

    (Recall, for example, the effectiveness of Reagan: much of his success in this area, I believe, was a direct result of our enemies —and friends— knowing exactly what he believed, and that he was a man of principle; there was no doubt in their minds that he meant what he said.)
