Cindy Sheehan Finds Out Thugocracy Isn’t Fun

It's getting rough out there, even for a leftist like Cindy Sheehan: Just 5 days before the election, at 3a.m. on October 30th, all of the front windows of the Cindy Sheehan for Congress campaign offices were shattered. Although staffers had been in the office less than an hour earlier, no one was in the …

The Two Americas: A Lesson from South Florida

Before the real Sarah Palin went to the podium to announce that "It's Saturday Night!" Tina Fey did one of her skits on a Palin News conference, making fun of Palin's implication that parts of the U.S. aren't really "America." My wife and I watched this historic episode of SNL from Boca Raton, a place …

Message to Australian Christian Lobby: You’re Probably Next to be Censored

I'm not sure why the Australian Christian Lobby is so gleeful over their government's proposal to implement mandatory internet censorship: The Australian Christian Lobby (ACL) today welcomed Government moves towards a two-tiered Internet filtering system which would include mandatory blocking of illegal material. ACL Managing Director Jim Wallace said it is vital that better Internet …

It’s Not Getting Any Better in American Public Schools

Even a liberal virtual rag like the IHT admits this is so: The United States once had the world's top high-school graduation rate. It has now fallen to 13th place behind countries like South Korea, the Czech Republic and Slovenia. Worse still, a new study from the Education Trust, a nonpartisan foundation, finds that the …

“Religious freedom is a rich and strategic human right”

As if to underscore a point no one seems to get, from a fascinating article about how interfaith efforts to secure religious freedoms have gotten lost in the journalistic shuffle: "What we found out was that human rights are part of one package," said Hertzke. "If you pull out the pin of religious freedom, it's …

Linda Bloodworth-Thomason Rips MSNBC, and Why the Élites Hate Sarah Palin

And Bloodworth-Thomason's remarks come not a moment too soon either: The cable news channel is "completely out of control," said writer-producer Linda Bloodworth-Thomason, a self-proclaimed liberal Democrat. She added that she would prefer a lunch date with right-leaning Fox News star Sean Hannity over left-leaning MSNBC star Keith Olbermann. Olbermann was criticized by many who …

Reply to Tom Sterbens on Christianity and Politics

Tom Sterbens initiated an interesting discussion on Christianity and politics on MissionalCOG.  His "wrap" on it is as follows: Do you think that the general disposition of the evangelical community (concerning the potential of Obama being president) is reflective of the same consciousness when Clinton was elected to office? Do you see it as fear …

Obama and Marx: “…to control the production of wealth is to control human life itself”

It looks like the Orlando reporterette's question on whether Obama is a Marxist is getting closer to being answered--by Obama himself, in this 2001 interview with a Chicago public radio station: Some comment is in order. One of the things that has always struck me about the whole "social justice" debate in the U.S. is …

Joe Biden and WFTV: Evidently They Thought It Was Serious

Joe Biden finally gets confronted with some tough questions: Although many liberals weren't impressed with these questions, the Obama campaign must be: they cut the station off from future interviews.  And this in a swing state. Armed with a more in-depth knowledge of Marxism, I would have put things a little more subtly.  That also …

Why William Ayers Matters

As the last day of voting (that's Election Day) in the U.S. approaches and the first day of suing (the day after Election Day) also approaches, people are already trying to figure out what this election means.  We won't know that until a) we have a formal winner and b) we have an idea what …
