Note to Kurt Schlicter - Todd Akin is a good man, had served Missouri for 12 years as a rock solid conservative, and had won the nomination. He did not deserve the rude, condescending and stupid treatment given him by phony Republicans who always seem to invent issues with which to smear their own candidates. Akin may have made an in artful statement. He is pro-choice. Get over it. We have the most brain dead elected political class, including the likes of John Boehner and Lindsay Graham and I don't see them being forcefully tossed aside. The Democrats don't do this because they are not stupid and they have a degree of loyalty to their own, unlike you Mr. Schlincter. I will say it. Todd Akin is good and those who trash him demonstrate their own hollowness and unworthiness of good representation.

The Obama Bank Shakedown

Would this funding of Democrat future candidates by phony bank penalties occur if there was an opposition party? Would it not be a good idea to have a party that opposes Obama and the Democrats? If such a thing existed they could stop it, by making it public, and explaining the crime involved, and refusing to fund any more Bank regulations till this stopped. If we had an opposition party.

Yes, the police of Ferguson have been so bumbling and incompetent. The only group that has been worse are the commentators who comment on what they know nothing about. Like this guy.

This sentence from Jonah Goldberg pretty much sums up the pathetic and disgusting shallowness and snobbery of what pretends to be conservatism today. "A video released from the by turns hapless and devious Ferguson Police Department alleges that he was actually walking from a thuggish and brazen shoplifting of a box of cigars from a convenience store." Goldberg, being a elite and brilliant conservative, must separate himself from the "hapless and devious" Ferguson Police Department. He gives no explanation why the simple release of a video is either. He does not appear to consider that this video might provide useful information for the lynch mob that is getting the rope ready for Officer Wilson. Goldberg also does not explain how the mere release of a simple video "alleges" anything about Michael Brown. The video is a simple surveillance video and I am not aware that the police department attached written allegations with it. As a video, it is just information. But it is more solid information than that which the black lynch mob is basing its lunatic death plans on. I would counter the lame assertion of Goldberg with this - the Ferguson Police Department, including Officer Wilson, appears to be the only honest and courageous actor in this drama. And that includes the incredibly arrogant and conceited Jonah Goldberg.
American political elites don't care much for Christians anyway. Do not expect any call for action from leading Democrats or Republicans. Look the other way. Now, if a single black urban youth criminal were killed in a legitimate police action, anarchy is justified. But, let organized Muslims chop of the heads of women, children and, yes even men, not a peep. Let them dance and hold the headless bodies of the innocents and have a party. Not a peep. These are just Christian's. Look the other way.
This is progress, but just a start. Now, if we would just legalize LSD, heroin, cocaine, crysal meth, prostitution, gambling, loan sharking, and bingo, we could eliminate all violence. I am pretty sure that would do the job.
For a more detailed explanation of this idea, read the excellent, just released book, "To Make and Keep Peace Among Ourselves and with All Nations", by Angelo Codevilla, long time commenter on international affairs and national security. His book tears apart the naive and destructive foreign policy that has guided US decisions for the last 100 years and kept us from attaining any lasting peace during that time. Dr. Codevilla is the "fresh thinking" on this though the ideas he presents on built on the wisdom of the great thinkers of the past, recent and ancient. All these being dead white males their good ideas have been scorned for decades in favor of more fashionable concepts that contain no wisdom but much danger.
Yes - the GOP has allowed Obama to do his evil. And the GOP has only shown one consistent principle - fight anyone who wants to seriously fight Obama and the Democrats. So, soon we might not have Obama. And at that moment we will also have no political party representing the opposite of Obama. That idea has been killed by John Boehner, Karl Rove and the evil Republicans. There is now just the Democrat Party, and those who will pretend to be opposition while getting paid by the financial backers of the Democrats. That is the position currently occupied by the Republican Party.
John Boehner is a deeply disturbed and troubled individual.
