Like I'm sure the Mitt-ster, with his vast experience in geopolitics, has talked to all the world leaders about our status in the world--pleeze. This is a classic example of a political has-been's arm chair quarter backing. Romney needs to go back to what he does best, making obscene amounts of money doing Salt Lake's work for the greater glory of the bizarre cult he belongs to.

Incredibly poor writing for your "web editor."
Good old conservative Stanford, home of the Hoover Institute...

Michelle Malkin--bossy or bitchy?
Homicide by gun is the 15th greatest cause of death in the US. I think that qualifies as a public health issue.
We have a precious First Amendment right in the US to worship whatever God we chose. Public expression of that faith is subject to limitations. This is not an infringement of anyone's rights, but an acknowledgment that there are other people in the world. The constant childish exhibitionism of Bible passages and such, designed to be in other peoples' faces is not a true expression of spirituality or our relationship with the divine--it is designed only to provoke, to create disharmony, to exhibit hubris and moral superiority--all very un-Christian-like behaviors.
It used to be the news lasted 30 minutes and you got news. Now all you get is pundits ranting about other pundits--Fox news attacking MSNBC and vice versa. Who cares if someone resigns? Just give me the facts, ma'am, I really don't care what your moral dilemmas are with your employer...
Maybe Bolton can steer us into WW III. The chicken hawk protests too much, methinks.
How does selling someone goods or services infringe on anyone's right to exercise their religion? Commerce and religion are not (or should not be). The onus should be on the merchant--if you don't want to bake wedding cakes for single sex weddings, then don't bake wedding cakes. If you don't want to sell birth control meds to women, don't carry them in your pharmacy. If your employer requires this as part of your job, you need to work elsewhere. I mean the logic is really twisted.

Peart has self-identified as a "left-leaning libertarian." I'm not really sure what that means, nor if he really does either. However, like many grown adults, he has acknowledged that Ayn Rand, like Sartre, Nietzsche, Marx, Friedman, von Mises, Schrumpeter, etc. was a youthful passing phase. Rand preached an elitism antithetical to a democratic state, a contempt of the middle class akin to that of Sartre in Nausea. Moreover, her utter lack of deep philosophical thought, demonstrates that, although she self-identifies as an Aristotelean, she is in fact a Platonist, i.e. a hopeless elitist utopian.
