"Revenge" isn't the right word here. It's "justice." And yes, part of justice is to deter, not just to avenge. The bombing of the Boston marathon crowd murdered three people and injured nearly 200 more (creating a couple dozen amputees in the process). And the intent was to murder many more. It was planned and coldblooded mass murder. Justice requires nothing less than administering the death penalty to the surviving Tsarnaev brother. We want to make sure that no future terrorist gets the same idea.

Baloney. I see a new movie a week. There are more interesting ideas in the "Matrix" and its sequels than there are in 20 CPAC conventions put together.

This isn't a question of "liberalism." It's just a sci-fi movie, for God's sake. The new "Star Trek" opens in a couple of weeks. Go see it.

Sci-fi, by its nature, is better suited for dystopia as opposed to utopia, whether the medium is film, TV or literature. This is not an issue of anyone's "hypocrisy." Any screenwriter worth his salt knows that to make a plot interesting requires depicting conflict. And conflict over natural resources is as old as man himself, especially when set in an unknown future. Jonah Goldberg never was much of a film critic anyway.
I've been saying it for years: When legal immigration is raised to and kept at high levels, illegal immigration naturally follows. We must lower legal immigration to manageable levels and frankly emphasize race. Put simply, I'll take Scots over Mexicans.

The problem with liberals is that they're anti-white, not anti-black. Wake up.

The "race card" is played by people who understand that race is a real issue, and yes, it does matter. It certainly matters to blacks. Why shouldn't it matter as well to us whites? Unless, of course, you want believe that blacks overwhelmingly are Good People, populated by just a few bad apples. I don't believe any such thing. Experience has taught me as much.

Here's my take on the new Town Hall format. It bites. "If ain't broke, don't fix it" -- somehow TH top brass didn't get that memo. As for this article, it's undermined, not elevated, by its Marxism-in-reverse populism, casting "mainstream media" as tools of the Ruling Class. I'm no big fan of Joe Scarborough, but a more measured tone of writing would have worked. The issue is a continuation of the classic Jefferson vs. Hamilton debate about the meaning of representation.
They are "Third World" for a more obvious reason that apparently can't be uttered in polite company: They're not white. Dark-skinned = Third World.
