    Because WFB fancied himself to be an aristocrat. I respectfully disagree. WFB was a rara avis. It was not an English accent he had. It was his accent. He was a performer, no doubt. His accent was part of his performance. Buckley was the Ann Coulter of his time mutatis mutandis (although far more consequential).

    I do not doubt Chrissy’s evaluation of McCain. Who needed to hear from Chrissy to know about that?

    The Obama endorsement, though, is pure high school peer pressure wealthy elitist lack of principle.

    Chrissy thinks he is groovin’.

    If that article is accurate, then William Buckley is to be condemned. And if the entire Buckley family are wealthy jack asses, then so be it. I suppose all I can claim, is William Buckley’s good inspiration to me, regardless of how he was personally.

    He died of emphysema, and is quoted as saying he hoped government would ban tobacco. That is an absurd rejection of his entire life’s thinking. It is a rejection of personal responsibility unworthy of him.

    It does not change the point of my post. If anything, it corroborates it. Great wealth is spiritually debilitating.

    DO NOT trust Stephen Schwartz. He is a sophisticated propagandist for mohammed-worship. His role in the scheme of things is to perpetuate the myth of the "moderate" mohammed-worshipper. You will notice that he advances the absurd notion that "fascism" has something to do with the 1400 year old violent central beliefs and traditions of mohammed-worship.

    Those beliefs and traditions are what accounts for the primitive brutality of mohammed-worship, found wherever you find islam. Schwartz has not and will not honestly address those beliefs and traditions. You will not find him stating, for instance, that the notion of the koran as the literal word of allah is absurd, and needs to be defeated within the preceints of mohammed-worship.

    Instead, he engages in a purported sympathy, which is a complete waste of time, unless you are interested in turning attention away from the central tenets.

    Stephen Schwartz: walk into any of thousands of mosques in any number of dozens of countries - - any mosque - - in Iran, Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Yemen, Syria, Iraq, etc etc - - and proclaim that what happened on 9-11 requires the perpetrators to go to Hell.

    You won't, because you know what true mohammed-worship is about. You would die. And because you do not believe the perpetrators of 9-11 will go to Hell.

    "They cite inflation?" Bush asked, adding that, "I happen to believe the war has clouded a lot of people's sense of optimism."

    I really don't blame the President for being so clueless in a small way. He doesn't go grocery shopping, nor would it make any sense for him to do so.

    But anyone who buys groceries understands the sticker shock.

    The President, who has never demonstrated that he is very keyed in to the understanding of every day life of most Americans, let alone Americans who conceive of themselves as "conservative," is just showing his simplistic arrogance here. The war and the price of groceries have nothing to do with each other in the mind of anyone, period.

    And people's sense of optimism? Really ... oh my goodness ... is it possible to get more incoherent or clueless than that statement?

    The very discouraging thought is that this President without a doubt was better to elect than Gore or Kerry. No question about it.

    But the Carter, Bush, Clinton, Bush, string of presidents, a string where the word mediocre would be extravagant, exaggerated praise if used to describe them, is too much to take.

    Apparently, no one ever loses by underestimating and insulting the intelligence of the American people.

    Desire for procreation is the one true thing we can be sure of. The desire for freedom is close to being a certainty, but is not, because of the absurd stupid millions who beg to be not free. As for me, I want freedom, regardless of the meaning of existence.

    I believe this to be incorrect; he is not done. I believe McCain has been aiming at playing the Ross Perot role of fighting with the Republican candidate, allowing Clinton to win.

    The President is not and never was a conservative. To the extent he has attempted to convey that he was, he was conveying a falsehood.

    Moreover, he is not a conservative because he is not a man of integrity.

    He is also not most of what the liberals and leftists call him.

    Conservatives make the absurd mistake of judging this man by his enemies.

    In that respect, conservatives are being played, and have been played, by both the President and his enemies.

    Also, don't you think that Abraham being instructed to sacrifice Isaac, and the obvious agony of Abraham depicted in those passages is meant to place before us in type and shadow the heart of God when His own son was sacrificed -- give us a window, in other words, not merely the fact that God is fore shadowing the sacrifice itself, but by imagining the agony of Abraham, we can walk for a bit in God's shoes as He shed's the blood of His Son to attone for our transgressions.

    I very much recognize the foreshadowing. So did Jesus, I suspect.

    Typical of Jesus, that extraordinary and lovely man, he put the best possible construction on it, to the extent of his life, for the benefit of us all.

    He was no mohammed.

    Yes, I do think the agony of Abraham was intended. That is what would make any human being react negatively.

    For Abraham to trust God in this matter and to prepare to go through with the act, which God would never allow to take place anyway, illustrated Abraham's willingness to trust God in all things, and proved to Abraham that he COULD trust God even when it didn't make sense.

    That point is clear enough. The issue is about the nature of the point.

    islam exalts the point, altho islam is actually mohammed-worship, the point of which is to be gloriously obedient, even tho obedience is submission to exquisite cruelty. Exquisite cruelty (the worship of allah and his associate mohammed) is the necessary option of islam.

    As the story of Abraham also shows, it is the necessary option of what our President believes.

    I don't know the man (W) personally, so I am speculating.

    But based on what he has said and not said, it seems W cannot find the intellectual basis for confronting those whose religion leads them to seek our total destruction.

    Pray for wisdom before calling anything in the Word of God repulsive. You may just be missing the point of the story.

    God forbids human sacrifice, but he called for Abraham to commit human sacrifice. Ponder that.

    God knew that he would not permit Abraham to actually slaughter Isaac, but he did permit Abraham to go thru that particularly gruesome human experience. If I understand human existence correctly, we all want to be spared that experience, regardless of the outcome

    Friends do not put friends thru the ordeal suffered by Abraham, for such a trivial and irrelavant point.

    I pray for wisdom, even tho I do not understand the nature of prayer. Do you?

    The point is this: like the allah of mohammed-worship, the God of Abraham (who is embraced whole-heartedly by the sociopath mohammed in his absurd construction of a religion whose point is the worship of mohammed) is an Entity pleased by the arbitrary and pointless suffering of men.

    Abraham necessarily says to himself, if God wants me to do it, I must do it. It is not the same thing as saying, for instance, if God wants me to be kind to others, I ought to be kind to others. It has only to do with the whim of the Supreme Being.

    The concept of the whim of a Supreme Being is the gist of mohammed-worship. (The trick to islam, is that mohammed was the conscious stand-in for allah).

    There is no difference in the logical premise of mohammed-worship and Christianity or Judaism, for example. Our President knows this, if only subliminally. He is not capable of confronting our enemy, because he shares the same interior premise: God is worthy of obedience even if he dictates the totally inane and brutal sacrifice of a son, especially under circumstances where the sacrifice is a sadistic emotional/psychological event.

    The worship of mohammed is a particularly debasing and humiliating, and emotionally cruel circumstance. There is nothing satisfactory from a human pov, other than the debatble satisfaction of belief in monotheism.

    But the belief in monotheism, and all it implies, calls into question islam and other "Abrahamic" religions.

    Our President is not a deep thinker. I do not say that in disrespect. I abhor his critics, who are witless jackasses, mostly. His belief system, tho, prevents him from uderstanding the enemy. He realizes (at some level of understanding) that the best criticism of our enemy, implicates his own beliefs.

    McCain is the Ross Perot of the campaign. McCain will run as a third party candidate to get the death-eater elected. The man is that demented. The death-eater will reward him, someway, and he will be happy.

    islam is the worship of mohammed. if you do not know that, examine your thinking. Our children face the long consequences of the violent, hateful centuries mohammed-worshippers persistently inflicted on those who thought humanity should be based on some idea of love.

    BTW: folks should know two things about this article. mo did NOT marry aisha at age 9. He married her at age 6. He had sexual intercourse with her at age 9, but probably used her body for mastabatory sex before 9.

    Second, when mo desired to have sex with his adopted son's wife, allah came thru (yet again) to help make it so. What folks do not know about the religion of mohammed-worship, is that it DISDAINS and abominates the humane practice of adoption, because "allah's" justification to allow mo to have sex with his adopted son's wife, was that adoption itself was not to be respected.

    Thus, mo's sex life TODAY affects mohammed-worshippers to emulate his inhumane disregard for other humans.

    There are very few places on the planet affected by lake effect weather. Man-made global warming is a bunch of absurd leftist fantasy.

    But you cannot really disprove it by pointing to areas which are subject to this phenomenon.

    There are lessons in life brought by lake effect storms. They are good lessons, if not often pleasant ones.

    Here is a message even folks on FR refuse to believe or listen to: islam is MOHAMMED-WORSHIP.

    moslems are irrational and contradictory when it comes to their bizarre belief system. Do not listen to them.

    Look at what islam is, in reality. IT IS MOHAMMED-WORSHIP.

    mo is the Perfect Man, the Perfect Example. In islam, mo is always put on a par with his psychopathic creation, allah.

    The entire point of islam is to ASSOCIATE MO WITH ALLAH. The belief system is meaningless unless mo is associated with allah.

    Do not for a second believe islam is a monotheistic religion. islam is the worship of a Jim Jones, Charles Manson, L Ron Hubbard sociopath/psychopath. islam is the perfect anti-religion. So perfect, it controls the minds of many non-mohammed-worshippers, who are scared to criticize mohammed worship or to call it what it is, because they are scared about the implications it has for their own belief system.
