    Why China Can’t Save Us

    From mcmikep2.blogspot.comYesterday the Chinese government announced it would spend nearly 600 billion USD in stimulus efforts.

    RE: China

    The point I was making was that the Journalists were attacked for trying to expose this. They were trying to be helpful and were met with violence. This should not be since The One was elected…we’re all supposed to be friends now. After further review, I probably should have let this one go in the trash heap.

    Price Of Olympic Gold Growing Too High

    With the breakup of the Soviet Union and the alleged demise of Communism, it was assumed that the Olympic games would no longer be as much of an arena for showcasing the competing ideologies of individual liberty and nearly total social control. And even though East German woman with mustaches no longer quite raise eyebrows and hushed chuckles the way they once did, the Olympics | Read More »

    Why the League of Democracies will not work

    Senator McCain has proposed a League of Democracies to confront the world’s problems. He feels this would be more effective in dealing with problems than the United Nations whether it comes to dealing with Iran, confronting genocide in Sudan, fighting AIDS in Sub Saharan Africa and working together to solve the crisis facing our environment. While he hopes this will streamline decision making by uniting | Read More »

    Why a Bailout Won’t Work

    Way back before there was paper money, people traded with whatever was available that others wanted. Barter was fair, but inconvenient. Soon people realized that gold and silver were easily identifiable, easily divided, and accepted everywhere. So gold and silver became the standard for trade. The village goldsmith, due to the nature of his job, had a vault to deter thievery. Being a shrewd businessman, | Read More »

    Led Zeppelin doesn’t want to offend

    So in the closing ceremonies of the Olympics, Led Zeppelin toned down the lyrics to their song “Whole Lotta Love” in order to not offend the delicate sensibilities of the Chinese. Is anyone else scratching their head over that one? What is it about murderous dictatorships that make them lean so heavily in the direction of prudishness? How does one resolve the conflict between a | Read More »

    Yahoo! Needs to brush up on ‘rithmetic

    In the most recent case of praise for the People’s (Communist) Republic of China, our friends over at Yahoo! ranks the competing nation’s medal count by “gold medals won”. (Update: Mea culpa, I viewed this page via a link from Drudge. I guess there was a Freudian slip over there on Drudge.) Of course, the communists did win more gold medals than the United States | Read More »

    Olympics Watchers Assisting Chinese Torture

    China Agitates To Undermine American Liberties

    It’s bad enough that those living under the heal of tyranny have their God-given rights suppressed, but one expects to hear of this transpiring in less-developed countries that have never really known freedom to begin with.

    Olympic Opening Ceremony is Lame Open Thread

    They have nothing to resemble alphabetical order. The stunts are mostly lame. And no word yet if the torch will be lit with Tibetans and Falun Gong activists as kindling. Have I mentioned I hate the Chicoms? Here’s an open thread. UPDATE Did McDonalds design the Chicoms’ outfits? (kidding, yes I know it is the chicom color scheme). By the way, was I the only | Read More »
