What if it also gives cover to enemies of the USA to do the same, resulting in the same treatment of, say, dozens of captured US servicemen, or some journalists? Or any of the rest of us expats who dare to live abroad?

Still More Politicized Pseudo-Science?

I'm as suspicious as Driessen, but this memo is not a smoking gun. Suppose, for the sake of argument, that the conspirators really truly knew that they were right, that they knew for certain fact that this pesticide was the sole cause of the bee declines. Wouldn't they do exactly as they have done? They would be left with a political task of gwetting their message out. Talk about coordinated effort & publishing papers is what they would do. It would not be an effort to deceive. We can't tell from the evidence Dreissen cited that there was any motive to deceive.
I'll see you at www.dianawest.net. Thanks for everything.

What's Rule of Law?

Deuteronomy 17:18-20 When he takes the throne of his kingdom, he is to write for himself on a scroll a copy of this law, taken from that of the Levitical priests. It is to be with him, and he is to read it all the days of his life so that he may learn to revere the Lord his God and follow carefully all the words of this law and these decrees and not consider himself better than his fellow Israelites and turn from the law to the right or to the left. Then he and his descendants will reign a long time over his kingdom in Israel.
A good law/rule is one you want your worst enemy to enforce. Example: Mom says If Johnny cuts the treat in 2; Suzie gets to pick whichever piece she wants. So: This is a lesson of what happens when a precedent is set for short-term political advantage, ignoring the fact that your political enemy may own the rule later. Moral( Bear with me, Democrats, I know, logical sequencing is hard.): If Obama issues broad executive orders, future Republicans have precedent to do the same to undo laws the D's like. Leverage: Rs reinstate filibuster if and only if Obama abandons sweeping executive orders.

Like I said, Bozell's thesis stands. I just disagreed with the particulars of that particular anecdote.
