    Toogood Reports [Monday, July 28, 2003; 12:01 a.m. EST] URL: An entry by Matt Evans at Stuart Buck´s excellent Buck Stops Here blog pointed me toward an interesting article by Michael Knox Beran in the Summer 2003 issue of City Journal contrasting conservative compassion with liberal pity. My own view is that liberalism is motivated less by pity – although I do recognize that as a component – than by a presumption that everyone else lacks sufficient compassion. Too many liberals believe in government income redistribution because they don´t believe that people will be sufficiently generous with voluntary private...

    NO NANNIES NEED APPLY by Robert Wolf We are not a democracy. As has often been said, democracy is two wolves and a sheep arguing about what is for dinner. We are (or were meant to be) a Federal Republic, a collaboration of autonomous states headed by a deliberately shackled Federal government. As citizen of this Federal republic we should be permitted to manage our own risk and to pursue our own destiny; free of the meddling of those who think fast food is bad for us, that motorcyclists must wear helmets, or that we should split up into multi-cultural...

    The Washington Post ^ | Feb. 28, 2003 | E.J. Dionne, Jr.
    In his new book on the Bush presidency, "The Right Man," former Bush speechwriter David Frum offers an analysis of "compassionate conservatism" that includes a nice throwaway line about liberals. "Bush described himself as a 'compassionate conservative,' " Frum writes, "which sounded less like a philosophy than a marketing slogan: Love conservatism but hate arguing about abortion? Try our new compassionate conservatism -- great ideological taste, now with less controversy." Then came Frum's line on liberals: "Conservatives disliked the 'compassionate conservative' label in the same way that people on the left would dislike it if a Democratic candidate for president...

    A Bold Beginning INVESTOR'S BUSINESS DAILYStimulus: We may quibble with some aspects of the president's growth-and-jobs plan. But overall, it's the broader, more-ambitious approach we were hoping for.The plan also strikes us as being thoughtful, innovative and - true again to President's Bush's word - compassionately conservative.For conservatives, the president hit most of the right notes in setting it up Tuesday. He noted (usefully) that our economic system is still the "most promising, creative and productive the world has ever seen." He stressed (sagely) that it's best served by leaving more money in the hands of the people, not the...

This is what I and most conservatives that I know hold as the most important statement that Martin Luther King made in his speech. Why do we remember this one line? We remember because it is what see when we envision a color blind equal society. We remember in hope that we will someday live...

(3) Norman Liebmann Monday Dec. 2, 2002 Don't ask me why, but now that he is discredited and out of office, Robert Torricelli, more than ever, is a symbol of the Democrat Party. Don't ask me why, but it's only a matter of time until peacenik do-gooder Shimon Peres demands the Knesset set aside a day to celebrate Yasser Arafat's bar mitzvah. Don't ask me why, but Bush has begun to resemble a real President since he quit flooding the American consciousness with the word "compassionate." Don't ask me why, but the blacks seem...

    Abortion Advocates vs. the ABA on Priscilla Owen By Thomas Jipping July 16, 2002 To: Interested Parties From: Thomas L. Jipping, J.D. Senior Fellow in Legal Studies Re: Abortion Advocates vs. the ABA on Justice Priscilla Owen Date: July 11, 2002 On May 9, 2001, President Bush nominated Priscilla Owen, currently on the Texas Supreme Court, to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit. Abortion advocates are among her most staunch opponents and harshest critics. The endorsement by one of America’s most prominent liberal, pro-abortion organizations, however, exposes the political, extremist nature of the opposition. Opposition to Justice...

    FEATURES The war Bush is losing Mark Steyn on America’s abject surrender to multi-cultural madness The other day, the National Education Association — i.e., the teachers’ union —announced their plans for the anniversary of 11 September: an attractive series of lessons and projects augmented by public TV documentaries and sponsored by Johnson & Johnson. From the company’s point of view, the sponsorship makes perfect sense: many of us have already gone out and bought a couple of extra crates of Johnson’s Baby Lotion, Extra-Strength Tylenol, etc., to deal with the blinding headaches and intense rectal irritation brought on merely...

    WASHINGTON (AP) - The Bush administration outlined a $35 million initiative Friday to stamp out chronic homelessness, targeting people with addictions or disabilities, who have lived on the streets for over a year.The effort reallocates existing funding from three federal agencies - Housing and Urban Development, Health and Human Services and the Veterans Administration - into programs that provide permanent housing and social services for the homeless.HUD Secretary Mel Martinez said he would like to eliminate chronic homelessness within 10 years."This joint collaboration on homelessness has never been tried before. Yet it makes perfect sense," Martinez said in a...

From AIDS relief for Africans, to foreign loan "forgiveness" plans for deadbeat nations, to multimillion-dollar poppy reduction subsidy programs for Afghan farmers, to U.N. donations that end up in the hands of Palestinian terrorists, to welfare benefits for illegal immigrants, to school vouchers for poor kids - but not your kids, to prescriptions...
