Broadening The Coalition

The only strategy capable of defeating the communists is the widest possible unity of all the class and social forces whose interests run counter to those of the most socialist section of the transnationals. You know we might like to start with economics. If the party was focused on 1. Economics 2. Defense 3. Individual […]

Madison — then and now

Here I am in a cold-to-the-bone (mid-thirties) rainstorm in Madison, Wisconsin — a place which seems more full of itself than any of the Midwest places so far. I liked Ann Arbor, which seemed more laid back and reminded me of a snowy Berkeley, but this place…. Maybe it’s just the weather; maybe I’m a […]

Buyers’ Remorse – Republican Version

Republicans are not happy with John McCain. Captain Ed has the news. The remorseful are mostly in the comments. Like this one: McCain will never fail to disappoint Republicans and kiss the asses of his true political opponents. Anti-McCain Republicans just drive me nuts. I can see you favoring socialized medicine, but isn’t losing the […]

Politics And Pain

This is an oldie but goodie that I first posted at Power and Control in October of 2005. I think it still rings true. == Front Page Magazine is doing a symposium with a number of leftist who have broken with the faith. Tammy Bruce has some very interesting things to say about the kind […]

What The Heck Is Going On In Iraq?

Rove On Gore

Karl Rove has a word or two about the recent Al Gore bubble. “You know you got a problem if the answer is Al Gore.” The comments are quite instructive as well. A lot of whistling past the graveyard. H/T Irish Trojan in Tennessee via Instapundit Cross Posted at Power and Control

Interesting Fact

Steady flow of nightlife

It’s not every day you see a fire hydrant like this: But there it was, staring at me in Ann Arbor on Friday night. Right now I’m in Rockford, Illinois (only overnight), soon to be on the road to Madison, Wisconsin. A picture from last night with M. Simon, taken in front of a the […]

JD Johannes Needs Your Help

JD Johannes is asking for help. He has produced a pro Victory in Iraq movie and needs to sell 2,900 CDs of his movie in six weeks to give Hollywood a wake up call. People often complain about Hollywood’s leftward tilt when it comes to Iraq, but few do anything pro-active about it. I am […]

Karl Rove Has Lined Up the Entertainment

Gateway Pundit has a story up about many of the groups lined up to protest the Republican convention. He quotes from a linked source.

Dean Speaks

Here is something interesting Howard Dean, head of the Democrat Party, had to say a while back. “The real issue is this, Who would you rather have in charge of the defense of the United States of America, a group of people who never served a day overseas in their life, or a guy who […]

Waiting for the Barbarians

What are we waiting for, assembled in the forum? The barbarians are to arrive today. Why such inaction in the Senate? Why do the Senators sit and pass no laws? Because the barbarians are to arrive today. What laws can the Senators pass any more? When the barbarians come they will make the laws. Why […]

Gay crackpots join war on sex

Unbelievable as the above title may seem, I’m afraid it’s true. Reading that I was in Ann Arbor, Michigan, Sean Kinsell emailed me a link to an Amy Alkon post which discusses an unbelievable story. A local Ann Arbor hamburger restaurant is called “Quickie Burger” and their logo shows a not-even-scantily clad girl riding a […]

Duke University is being sued by 38 Lacrosse players for damages and emotional distress due to the University’s involvement in the case. The charges include defamation of character. The University Hospital is also being sued. The Lacrosse players have a www site that Duke is asking the judge to take down, not because any information […]

Real conservatives want their party to lose, but only to Hillary!

On Wednesday I listened to Rush Limbaugh devote two segments of his show to bashing primarily two people: Barack Obama and John McCain. Considering his longstanding antipathy to McCain, and his urging of Republicans to vote for Hillary, and considering that the polls show Obama is easier for McCain to beat, it strikes me that […]

Fitna The Movie

There are Muslims fighting against this brand of Islam. Muslims Against Sharia, where I have posting privileges, is one. I’m Jewish and that is well known to the group. I highly recommend a visit to their site. It is a fountain of wisdom and tolerance. I note that it has taken a while but, true […]

spirited fun in the snowy spring

I’ve been in the air and on the road all day, and only now have I been able to get online, for a few minutes of questionable Wifi time. Right now I’m visiting Ann Arbor, Michigan, which is being hit by what seems like a small blizzard. Something I didn’t expect to see this time […]

A God For Us

Dr. James Hal Cone is one of the leading lights behind the Black Liberation Theology that Obama’s Pastor Rev. Wright espouses. Here is some of what he believes: * “Black theology refuses to accept a God who is not identified totally with the goals of the black community. If God is not for us and […]

Another Class

There is another class of colored people who make a business of keeping the troubles, the wrongs, and the hardships of the Negro race before the public. Having learned that they are able to make a living out of their troubles, they have grown into the settled habit of advertising their wrongs — partly because […]
