The white enemy

Is it racist to point out that someone else is racist? Are regular Americans racist if they are alarmed by the teachings of Black Liberation Theology? Would it be racist to be uncomfortable with the fact that Obama attended a church that teaches this herecy for more than 20 years? Apparently so, but it scares […]

Controversy where there is none

Filed under Japan, Politics

Can anyone imagine someone in the US claiming that there’s some secret conspiracy behind a government organization putting up the national flag? That’s exactly what happened earlier this month in Japan. Finance Minister Shoichi Nakagawa decided to display the Japanese flag in the ministry’s press briefing room. What on earth could possibly be wrong with […]

Troubling pattern

How is it that someone like Barack Obama is actually in the running to become President of the United States? Are people really not scared when they look at his personal associations and voting record? Does it really not matter that for 20 years he attended a church that preaches Black Liberation Theology (the idea […]

Mark Hemingway says that “Joe Biden is proof that Americans are kindly forgiving people.” I think he’s proof that Americans are astoundingly forgetful and prone to overlook failure for perceived good intentions.

Do facts matter?

Thomas Sowell expresses his bewilderment over how Obama could be the one getting a bounce from the current crisis brought on by the Democrats. Abraham Lincoln said, “You can fool all the people some of the time and some of the people all the time, but you can’t fool all the people all the time.” […]

I’ll be expecting your support…

Why are Republicans concerned about the polls?

If Obama has a 7-point lead right now it just means he’ll be behind 2 or 3 points on election day. Just Google “Kerry leads Bush” and you’ll find all kinds of examples where Kerry was ahead of Bush. I don’t think there’s any reason to panic with more than a month left before election […]
