    A Thorough Fisking Of Obama’s Executive Orders On Gun Control Let's examine. First, from the White House: Over the past decade in America, more than 100,000 people have been killed as a result of gun violence—and millions more have been the victim of assaults, robberies, and other crimes involving a gun. Many of these crimes were committed by people who never should have been able to purchase a gun in the first place.  And yet the CDC says firearms are "an important crime deterrent," if you want to put stock in a government entity for an obvious answer. The benefits...

    PORTLAND -- A state board will investigate whether a Beaverton teacher was on his own time or using state resources while he organized liberals to crash Oregon tea parties. On Thursday, Jason Levin was put on paid leave by the Beaverton School District. Levin has gotten national attention for a "Crash the Tea Party" Web site that called for opponents to infiltrate the events and behave outlandishly. That raised suspicion he was doing political work during schools hours. Beaverton School District spokeswoman Maureen Wheeler confirmed Levin was placed on paid administrative leave as of Thursday while they conduct an internal...

    About 10 years ago, my business required a great deal more windshield time than it does now: time spent listening to a lot of talk radio. I recall a question that Rush Limbaugh posed to his audience, Why did the Republicans lose the 96 Presidential election? Several callers attempted to answer the question, but no one had the answer. If El Rushbo answered his question on-air, then it was after I had gotten out of the car, so I never learned his response. If I could have had an opportunity to give a response, my answer would have been this:...

    Maureen Dowd begins her book Are Men Necessary? with a confession: "I don't understand men." If only she'd left it at that, we could simply add "men" to the long list of subjects into which she has no particular insight: history, psychology, philosophy, religion, economics, literature, art, constitutional law, international diplomacy, and several other topics upon she comments in her twice weekly column for the New York Times. But Dowd had to go and write a book about men and women, and Putnam had to go and publish it, and now it's sitting on my desk, waiting to be reviewed,...

    I thought you might like to see the email I sent Juan Cole in response to his August 8th post about my husband. Sorry if it runs a little long - "Was American journalist Steve Vincent killed in Basra as part of an honor killing? He was romantically involved with his Iraqi interpreter, who was shot 4 times. If her clan thought she was shaming them by appearing to be having an affair outside wedlock with an American male, they might well have decided to end it. In Mediterranean culture, a man's honor tends to be wrought up with his...

    A Life Described by Three PhasesThe claims that Ratzinger was a Nazi have made the rounds in the media with people already seeking to silence this Pope as a racist. Defense is coming from an unlikely corner, the Jewish contigent. Rabbi Marvin Hier of the Simon Wiesenthal Center in Los Angeles agreed that Ratzinger's father was an anti-Nazi and said Ratzinger's membership in the Hitler Youth should not be taken as an indication of Nazi sympathies because membership was mandatory. Heir said his group likes Ratzinger and expects him to continue John Paul II's outreach to Jews.Other Jewish groups overseas...

    Folks, I apologize for the vanity posting, but what I read in the New York Times Magazine outraged me so much, that I couldn't help but blog. And after I blogged, I still felt outraged, and I had to spread that outrage around. Read this, read what Kerry said, read what I have to say about it, then reflect that he very well might be the next Commander-in-Chief. God save us. The Nuisance Factor I have to opine on the topic that everyone is talking about, and that is of course Kerry's interview with the New York Times Magazine (not...

    http://www.capitalideasblog.com/archives/2004/10/kerrys_economic.html The main point is that Kerry is not offering a middle-class tax cut as he continually claims. It's only a few targeted tax credits for a less-than-majority segment of the population. Agree? Disagree?

    To: Mr. Robert Fisk (& The Independent) A while ago, we read your article entitled "Robert Fisk: Why does John Malkovich want to kill me?

We are writing to let you know that we support you, admire and respect your persistent endeavor to voice the truth.
