Book Review – We Chose Life: Why You Should Too, by Anthony Horvath

Book Review by Mary Ann Kreitzer It’s a parent’s worst nightmare — hearing the words, “You have a very sick child.” For a dad, it’s particularly difficult because his job, besides providing materially for his family, is to protect his loved ones from harm. But when illness strikes a child, a dad often stands helpless …

Karl Marx flunks history

In the following column, Olavo de Carvalho alludes to the Hegelian theory of the “historical imperative,” which the early Marxists used as a basis for their ideas. This Utopian notion of history as a foregone conclusion, is still used by Marxists and their followers. I have shown how the idea of “gay marriage” is based …

The border crisis and cognitive dissonance

The border crisis and cognitive dissonance by Don Hank The lack of response and negative response of many Americans to my recent article on the dangerous crisis at the US-Mexican border signals the existence of a sweeping epidemic of the mental disorder known as cognitive dissonance. We often think of cognitive dissonance in terms of two different world views that …

The wind farm boondoggle

The wind farm boondoggle by Don Hank Wind farms are considered an “investment” and governments are trying desperately to attract capital to build them. However, as Christopher Booker recently wrote for the Sunday Telegraph, they are not a feasible investment. And there are other issues as well: First and foremost, any enterprise that requires government …

Administration’s inaction criminal and impeachable

Constitution: Obama guilty of treason, must be impeached By Don Hank I recently published a column on the gradual seizure of ranches in Arizona by Mexican cartels with the tacit consent of the current administration. I need to clarify that any person in a position such that he/she can be reasonably expected to be protecting …

Cartel seizing US assets, with tacit consent of US government

by Don Hank Today I sent out the following link to a report showing how one American ranch and its occupants (one of many) were physically threatened by dangerous criminals due to inaction on the part of the Obama government – inaction that, if it occurred on a local level, would immediately be seen as …

Obama no match for China

by Don Hank Obama has been pushing China for a long time to revalue the RMB upward. In view of their refusal, he has recently made noises of wanting to erect trade barriers against China. A Chinese think tank has warned him that he will lose and has mentioned the unspeakable: the specter of the Chinese …

I Wish the GOP was the Party of No

Obama has been on a tear, raging against the Republicans that they are the ‘party of no.’ From a recent speech:

“There were no new policies from Mr. Boehner. There were no new ideas. There was just the same philosophy that we had already tried during the decade that they were in power — the same philosophy that led to this mess in the first place: Cut more taxes for millionaires and cut more rules for corporations.”

If only this were true! If only the GOP were eschewing new ideas and holding tenaciously to the perfectly good old ones! If only. Not that I am conceding Obama’s argument, here. Either he is an idiot or we are- or he thinks we are. The Bush tax cuts had nothing to do with the housing bubble. Barney Frank (D) and Chris Dodd (D), did, and let us remember that this ‘inherited’ recession came only in the last few months of an 8 year term. Shame, shame, Mr. Obama. But I digress.

As the candidate field shapes up for the 2012 presidential election there is an opportunity to lay bare the fatal flaw in GOP ‘conservatism’ in the hopes that maybe something can be done about it. Let me be clear, this isn’t a new development. The problems began decades ago- even before we were born. To help me get at what I’m talking about, let me begin with what may appear to be another digression.

Telling Muslims what they need to Hear (Koran Burning)

his thing down in Florida where a pastor of a congregation not much bigger than my thumbnail has threatened to burn korans has reached the heights of absurdity. Pastor Jone’s one long publicity stunt has paid off in spades. It has attracted all kinds of attention. Even Obama has noticed, and given how hard it is for a commoner to attract his eye, that’s really saying something. But maybe not. President Oblivious seems to have a keen eye for potential beer summits or things touching on Islam.

The demolition of conscience

Olavo de Carvalho Diário do Comércio, December 21, 2009 Whoever has fully understood my article “Weapons of freedom” must also have realized the conclusion to which it unavoidably leads: a good part of the moralizing effort expended by the “religious Right” in cleansing a corrupt society is useless, since it ends up being readily absorbed …
