Christianity and the Death Penalty
“Whoever sheds human blood, by humans shall their blood be shed; for in the image of God has God made mankind.”— Gen. 9:6 (NIV)I am no theologian, but tonight I kept running into people who claim I cannot be a Christian and support the death penalty. Many of them referred to the Catholic Church, which takes a very firm stand in favor of life, from | Read More »
There Is No Travesty of Justice in Georgia. Execute Troy Davis
Tonight the United States Supreme Court declined to stay Troy Davis’s execution. He will, by the time many of you are reading this, be dead.

Troy Davis Is A Justly Convicted Cop Killer
I’ve had my say on Troy Davis. Now consider Ann Coulter who read through the entirely of the 170+ page federal judicial re-examination of the evidence.[T]he media claim that seven of the nine witnesses against Davis at trial have recanted.First of all, the state presented 34 witnesses against Davis — not nine — which should give you some idea of how punctilious the media are | Read More »

Get Ready: Conservatives Are About to Support the Federal Takeover of Schools
After Mitt Romney attacked Rick Perry for joining Milton Friedman in calling social security a “ponzi scheme”, conservative intellectuals in the DC-NY corridor suddenly began treating Friedman as John Maynard Keynes’ bastard love child with Karl Marx and rejecting all calls to reform social security because Rick Perry dared to call it a ponzi scheme.Considering the behavior of conservative intellectuals in Washington and New York | Read More »
Isn’t This a Relevant Connection?
Nicole Gelinas is over at National Review joining in questioning Rick Perry about his “ponzi” rhetoric on social security. I’ve read that post twice and really don’t see the point of it, even with the previous points.But what is relevant to me is that Ms. Gelinas is a contributing editor to the Manhattan Institute’s City Journal.The Chairman of the Manhattan Institute is Paul E. Singer.What | Read More »
Class Warfare: American Communists of 1928 Compared to Barack Obama
The other day I linked to a rather silly post at Think Progress by Matthew Yglesias. His point was that Obama is not engaging in class warfare because if you want real class warfare look at the Communist Party of Great Britain in 1928. That was real class warfare. Never mind how similar some of what the CPGB wanted in 1928 is what Obama is | Read More »
A Point Without Partisanship — A Scandal Everyone Should Be Concerned About
With the exception of CBS News, few media outlets have paid much attention to Operation Gun Walker a/k/a “Fast and Furious,” which has no relation to Vin Diesel. The lack of media attention may be about to change. This is a huge and troublesome scandal. The left is, I think, afraid to touch it because of just how far up within the Obama Justice Department | Read More »

Let’s Party Like It’s 1917
The DNC’s logo for the 2012 convention struck me, when it first came out, as “Soviet chic”, a trendy style that’s been making its way around leftist protests from Wisconsin to Washington.With Barack Obama’s class warfare speech yesterday, it seems the President’s 2012 campaign theme will be to party like its 1917. In a speech right out of a European socialist’s playbook, Barack Obama kept | Read More »

Is The Administration Going to Use GM to Distract from Solyndra?
Many people call it Government Motors these days. General Motors has been a government slush fund to reward unions and other Democratic loyalists since the Obama Administration arrived in Washington. Now there are signs the Obama campaign and DNC intend to use GM to distract from Solyndra.If you’ll remember back in 2010, General Motors rushed out an ad campaign that claimed it had paid back | Read More »
