North Korea is the next most obvious subject, with a very unstable government | Read More »

One Step Toward Energy Independence (And Three Steps Back)
The emotional appeal of the New Green Economy rests on its promise to free us from our addiction to oil. Our carbon-free future envisions a land of Rainbows, Unicorns and Magic Windmills, with a Prius in every garage. Our energy will be as free as the wind; no more will our thirst for petroleum make us slaves to foreign regimes. There’s just one hitch. Green | Read More »

China’s American Dream: America, Step Aside
There’s a new book out, but don’t look for it to appear at the NYT Best Seller List any time soon. It’s in Chinese.

Made in China
Like most young conservatives in the United States I spent the past weekend at CPAC. Nearly every booth had some great handout, from key chains, to bottle openers, to books, but my favorite – a stress ball in the shape of the Capitol dome. One can’t help but look at the Capitol and be filled with a patriotic pride. A sense of awe at the | Read More »
Who Owns Who? Do We Anger The Chinese or Mortally Terrify Them?
For a while there, I was just about ready to completely give up on Peggy Noonan. I think she had spent too many years flying around defending George W. Bush. After Harriet Myers, Comprehensive Immigration Reform, Iraq and Katrina, it may well have been that her arms had gotten tired. Today, she offered further indications that she had reacquired her groove. She may not miss | Read More »

Reporter: “So Shaq, have you been to The Parthenon?” Shaquille O’Neill: “No, I’ve been staying out of the clubs to focus on my game.” It would be easy to make fun of Shaq over his lack of knowledge of European History. He seems particularly uninterested in the traditions and folklore of Ancient Athens. Give the modern Hellenic economy two more years; and he may be | Read More »
