You Don't Have to Stay Poor

"To underscore these statistics, Earl Graves Jr., CEO of Black Enterprise magazine, said that blacks are six times as likely as whites to purchase a Mercedes-Benz and that blacks who purchase Jaguars have an income one-third less than whites who purchase the same vehicles. This simple statistic points to a root cause of most of the economic shortcomings of African culture. Too much import is placed on flashy "stuff" being an indication of a person's intrinsic worth - rather than placing whats "inside" at the top of the list. Just point'n out what is out there.

Assad Must Pay

If Assad violated international law, then capture him and hold a trial in The Hague. If he committed an act of war against the international community, give him one in the heart and one in the head - why should simple pawns in the Syrian military suffer death for Assad's actions? Oh, that's right, propriety prohibits panty-waisted nations from assassinating "leaders" of sovereign countries. But if we declare war on them (what else is lobbing 1,000 pound HE warheads), isn't killing the enemy that which constitutes victory?

The New 'Equality' Principle

Yes - a private business should be able to refuse service to anyone it wants to; and suffer the business related consequences of that action. Your taxi driver is a non-sequitor, as that is a governmently licensed/regulated business. A question...if a person wants coffee from said coffeeshop at 9 pm, but the shop closes at 8 pm, hasn't the shop discriminated against the person who wants coffee at 9 pm?
"Put its entire existence on the line?" What in the world are you talking about? If O'bumo is too scared to speak up for the human rights of an American citizen illegally held in an Iranian prison, then maybe Iran really is much closer to having The Bomb than we are told - are we're afraid they will place it right next to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.

If the American consumer had demanded, through their purchasing habits, Amercian made goods and services (even if it cost them more money); then far fewer American jobs would have gone overseas to low wage production. Bemoaning what has happened to us is like yelling at the reflection in the mirror. We have met the enemy, and it is us.
Agreed. Maybe the correct Christian petition for our (and any other) country is "Lord, have mercy on America."

Our Guardian Angel Big Brother?

Interesting: "striking the balance between freedom and security."; but using military intervention overseas in a preemptive way to protect our interests is heresy in Mr. Buchanan's eyes.
What do you all think of the president's petition from a few weeks ago "God bless Planned Parenthood"?

The Unraveling of Sykes-Picot

The problem with H.G. Wells' (and PB’s) border theory is that the grass is always greener on the other side. Just because ethnic/race groups are allowed to form xenophobic nations, it will not lead to normalizations or peaceful relationships. Ethnic/race groups will always want the prime acreage that invariably will be stuck between these “natural” borders; hence the condition of man’s continual strife with his fellow man since time immemorial (including “enlightened” Western Europe up until 1945). And sorry to say that regardless of what living in Lotus Land may intellectually offer, we all live on a very small rock floating in space; the conflict in the Middle East will come to us in various forms, whether we want it or not.

Yo' baby... The difference is that in these other cases, the good-guys shot back and didn't prevent tactical assistance from supporting them. We all know it's a dangerous world, but apparently the current admin doesn't think so when it fits their politic.
Dear Lord, Please, please, in the name of Your Son, turn away the wrath of your righteous judgment impending against us.
