Why I Oppose Barack Obama

Barack Obama was America's first black president. Given the way he has conducted himself, he may be the last. Quite a contrast with Jackie Robinson. Robinson could be difficult, but there was no denying that he was an above-average baseball player.

Fascist Leftists in Houston

This incident shows that the main division in America is not between the red states and the blue states, but between the city and the country. Texas is supposed to be a red state, yet the city of Houston is loaded with leftists. Similarly, rural and suburban areas in blue states like New York and Massachusetts are loaded with opponents of big government. There seems to be something about cities that turns people into leftists. It would be interesting if someone could figure out the connection. As for myself, I have no idea what the connection is, only that such a connection exists.

Answering Ted Olson

I know an Army general who retired from the Army with the rank of 2 stars. He had a substantial background in photographic analysis and interpretation. He is very adamant in insisting that no airplane ever crashed into the Pentagon.

Answering Ted Olson

I believe Ted Olson was the husband of Barbara Olson, a prominent television personality who supposedly died on September 11 as the airplane she was riding in crashed into the Pentagon. The evidence now shows, however, that no airplane ever crashed into the Pentagon and that the damage to the Pentagon must have been caused by something other than an airplane. All this makes me wonder what really happened to Barbara Olson. If the airplane she was riding in never crashed into the Pentagon, then what became of her? Could she still be alive today?
Fabulous article. Studies show that the vast majority of America's academic, intellectual, artistic, and cultural elite support the Democratic Party. Given the fact that the Democratic Party is today no better than the Nazi Party in Germany, in what sense are our elites really elite? Are the politicians our elites support any better than Hitler and Goebbels?
Not just FDR, but also Hoover prolonged the depression by massive intervention. The notion that Hoover was the last and most desperate champion of laissez-faire who sat back and did nothing when the Depression hit is a myth concocted by Democratic historians and other lackeys. Almost from the beginning Hoover intervened to correct the Depression, and it only made matters worse. Roosevelt New Dealer, Rex Tugwell, later said that the his boss's New Deal was pretty much a continuation and expansion of the Hoover New Deal.
Unfortunately, some of the most irresponsible voters are those in our cultural, academic, and intellectual elite, especially on the East Coast. These people consider themselves open-minded and intelligent, but in reality they are exactly the opposite. As was the case with Pavlov's dogs, all the Democratic Party has to do is ring a bell, and they get up on their hind legs and start salivating.

Peace Protests, R.I.P.

The principle loyalty of most peace activists is not toward peace, but toward the Democratic Party. Republican wars are bad, but Democratic wars are OK.

Stupid Is As Krugman Does

I went to Yale around the same time that Krugman did. I have no recollection of ever meeting Krugman, but I will say this. They had a very bad crop of people at Yale back then, all the way from the President down to the freshman undergraduates, and most everybody in between. I never met so many bad people in one place as I did at Yale. Not everybody was bad, but you have to be careful with regard to anyone who was at Yale around that time. Watch your step!
America's poor people are not getting much of an education out of the schools that they are attending. It doesn't take a rocket science to figure out what the problem is. The schools that they are attending are run by government. Private initiative is nearly always superior to government, so get government out of education entirely and leave it to private initiative. Then these people will start getting an education for a change.
