    Just for the heck of it, yesterday, I applied for GOES. Supposedly can circumvent the long TSA lines at airports. Although I have also heard that the GOES lines are not so fast these days too. Got to travel thru Chicago in a couple of months and the horror stories were non-stop. Although recently they seemed to have gotten a bit better.

    Greece hasn't even filed for bankruptcy yet and the "unexpected" consequences are already coming. In comments to The Sunday Times newspaper, Irish Transport Minister Leo Varadkar said the country will likely need another "unexpected" loan from the troica, after he became the first cabinet member to cast doubt in public on Ireland's ability to raise cash. In other words once on the temporary bailout wagon, always on the temporary bailout gain. Reuters reports: "I think it's very unlikely we'll be able to go back next year.

    It's no secret that America is on the decline. Perhaps the election of a statist in 2008 was merely a reflection of the decline. Perhaps it was a successful propaganda campaign by the enemedia. The Post-American Presidency: The Obama Administration's War on America. He is a disaster of unimaginable proportion. The degree of statism in a country’s political system, is the degree to which it breaks up the country into rival gangs and sets men against one another. When individual rights are abrogated, there is no way to determine who is entitled to what; there is no way to determine...

    When some liberals called for reining in harsh political rhetoric after the Arizona shootings, Rep. Jim Clyburn (D-S.C.) took it one step further. He called for bringing back the Fairness Doctrine, in what was widely considered an attempt to clamp down on talk radio. A week later, those calls have abated, and no one is seriously pursuing the idea of returning to the long-defunct policy, which required media on the public airwaves to present both sides of controversial political issues. Not Clyburn, not another Democrat who echoed his call for regulatory remedies, Rep. Louise Slaughter (N.Y.), and not the Federal

    This year’s Kristallnacht event in Germany hosts a former German Jew, whose presence inherently connects the pogrom with his known opposition to a Jewish presence in Judea and Samaria and his blame of Israel for “promoting anti-Semitism globally.” In what may signal a desire of Germans to leave the past further behind them, Germany hosted a French-German intellectual – in a church – who fled the Nazi regime in 1933 and did not experience the horrors of the Holocaust but now equates Gaza with a concentration gap. Kristallnacht, or the “night of broken glass,” occurred on this day in 1938,...

    Obama’s Department of Justice has suddenly turned on a dime, becoming the great pro-active protector of voters’ rights: Poll watchers in Harris County, Texas — where a Tea Party group launched an aggressive anti-voter fraud effort — were accused of “hovering over” voters, “getting into election workers’ faces” and blocking or disrupting lines of voters who were waiting to cast their ballots as early voting got underway yesterday.

The Chinese Ministry of Commerce issued a preliminary ruling Monday that imposed a 36 percent tariff on American-made Nylon 6, a synthetic filament that ends up in a wide array of products, including toothbrushes, auto parts, socks and the handles of Glock handguns. Nylon 6 from Taiwan and Russia would also be taxed, but at much lower rates.

    JUNEAU, Alaska — Starting Wednesday, a new anti-gun-control law in Alaska will allow handgun owners to carry concealed weapons without a permit in the seven Alaska cities where permits are now required. Gun owners will be allowed to keep their firearms in their vehicle, even if the car is parked on private property where the owner has a no-gun policy. And, some police chiefs say, local ordinances that ban guns from public buildings such as city halls will no longer be enforceable. Alaska’s new law forbids municipalities from passing gun laws that are more restrictive than state law. The National...

    WASHINGTON - The showdown over President Bush's judicial nominees reflects the raw nature of modern-day politics: Senators pulled to their political extremes by special interest groups, with a dwindling few clinging to a semblance of moderation and tradition. Compromise, while possible, is more painful than ever because of changes in media, technology and politics. Special interest groups are richer and more powerful than a few years ago. New technologies make it easier for these groups to rally partisan voters who, because of C-Span, 24-hour cable TV news, the Internet and other communication innovations, are more plugged into politics than in...
