    From the fringe left Daily Kos to mainstream media outlets such as CNN and MSNBC learned a tough lesson on Thursday as they awoke to find Sarah Palin's Autobiography Going Rogue: An American Life atop the pre-order best sellers lists and daily sales boards for Amazon, Barnes and Noble and nearly every other book retailer websites. The announcement of Palin's release date on Wednesday caused an outbreak of attacks on the former Vice Presidential candidate that would lead you to believe that she had announced a Presidential campaign rather than a book release. Thousands of Internet and print articles attacking...

    When Michael Huttner and Jason Salzman's book, 50 Ways You Can Help Obama Change America, hit the book stands September 1st, the admittedly left-wing authors had high hopes of dislodging conservative books from Glenn Beck, Mark Levin, Michelle Malkin and others from Best Seller lists they have dominated for months. The 50 ways guide was publicized with glowing reviews from Hollywood celebrities and even the late Senator Ted Kennedy. At the Huffington Post, they have even offered a trip to Hawaii contest as an promotion for pushing sales. But alas, one week after the hyped release of the book, it...
  • "Time for Leagues to Do Something About Players With Guns" (Abolish 2nd amendment)

    Now, let's not start screaming about the Second Amendment. To begin with, the amendment should be abolished -- a sensible interpretation of the amendment is that it was written to allow the people to raise a militia for protection and to hunt for food. Clearly no one needs to raise a militia these days, and those who hunt for a living can be licensed to do so. It would be nice if President-elect Obama had the time to focus his energies on repeal of the Second Amendment, but he first has to deal with a broken economy and the incredibly...

    As I say, the above demographic audit has become something of an annual tradition in this space. But here's something new that took hold in the year 2007: A radical antihumanism, long present just below the surface, bobbed up and became explicit and respectable. In Britain, the Optimum Population Trust said that "the biggest cause of climate change is climate changers – in other words, human beings," and professor John Guillebaud called on Britons to voluntarily reduce the number of children they have. "Every person who is born," says Toni Vernelli, "produces more rubbish, more pollution, more greenhouse gases and...

    Group Calls for Population Control to Stop Global Warming By Monisha Bansal April 18, 2007 (CNSNews.com) - Ahead of Earth Day on Sunday, an advocacy group warned that the United States is ignoring "the most crucial factor in reducing global warming" -- population control. "Human population growth is the paramount environmental issue," Ric Oberlink, a spokesman for Californians for Population Stabilization, told Cybercast News Service. "Global warming is a very serious problem, but it is a subset of the overpopulation problem," he said. Oberlink argued that an increase in the emission of "greenhouse gases" -- carbon dioxide and other gases...

    The communist, pro-terrorist group International ANSWER (Act Now to Stop War and End Racism) seems to realize they are facing a hot LZ on March 17. ANSWER has made significant changes in their plans since their initial announcement that they would hold their ‘antiwar’ rally at the Vietnam Veterans Memorial. Last week they changed the location of their rally from Constitution Gardens (East side of the Vietnam Memorial) to a park one block west of Memorial on Henry Bacon Drive. Yesterday, ANSWER announced they are only going to use the Henry Bacon Drive park as a meeting point for their...

    WASHINGTON -- GLOBAL WARMING is “unequivocal,” according to the just-released report by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. The most likely culprits are people — all of us. Yet, apart from insightful comments by former Vice President Al Gore, there has never been much public discussion about the role of human population growth in global warming. Prof. Tim Dyson, of the London School of Economics indicates that a 40 percent cut by 2050 in per-capita carbon emissions in the developed world could be completely cancelled by population growth. It’s time to open a “second front” in the battle against global...

    "A U.S. based environmental magazine that both former Vice President Al Gore and PBS newsman Bill Moyers, for his October 11th global warming edition of “Moyers on America” titled “Is God Green?” have deemed respectable enough to grant one-on-one interviews to promote their projects, is now advocating Nuremberg-style war crimes trials for skeptics of human caused catastrophic global warming."

    "In the first place God made idiots," observed Mark Twain. "This was for practice. Then he made school boards." The San Francisco Board of Education's 4-2 vote last week to abolish the Junior Reserve Officers' Training Corps program, which has been active in the city's high schools for 90 years, tends to support his view. Why is JROTC being done away with? It isn't for lack of interest. More than 1,600 San Francisco students currently take part in its voluntary activities. "Kids love this program as if it's family," notes the San Francisco Chronicle. It is "a program that students...

    About 25 revelers celebrated their freedom of speech and welcomed the Fourth of July on Monday night with the "2nd Annual Old Time American Flag Burn." Around a burn barrel at Seabright State Beach, organizer Brent Adams, 41, of Santa Cruz, declared flag burning not a protest, but a celebration of the Constitution's First Amendment. "It seemed like a good idea to burn some flags just because we can," added fellow organizer Sha Lar, 32, of Santa Cruz. The festivities were especially relevant after a constitutional amendment allowing Congress to ban flag desecration died in the Senate last week. That...

    June 05, 2005 American Left Remains On Fringe Of Society Joe Bell One of the most deeply held objectives of the American left is the overwhelming obsession to remove any vestige of God from American history. Earlier this year The Nation ran an article titled "Our Godless Constitution" by Brooke Allen, which made an intrepid, yet failed, effort to rewrite America's past. Bouncing from the Declaration of Independence to the Founding Fathers to the Constitution the writer battled gamely to prove America was "founded not on Christian principles, but on Enlightenment ones." The Enlightenment offered much in the advancement of...
  • Push to privatize Social Security is diversionary fraud [NUTCASE ALERT]

    The Bush administration's push for urgent partial privatization of Social Security is the most dishonest, economically unsound, diversionary fraud ever devised.It is a complete waste of time, perhaps only rivaled by a previous Republican Congress's ignoring all of the real problems facing our country by diverting attention to Clinton's sex life. To promote reforming Social Security as an immediate crisis demanding attention, is a clear statement that the administration is self-serving and it believes that the American electorate is stupid. Any Congressman that supports this wasteful activity should be vigorously opposed in the election two years from now.Let's consider...
