Americans under the age of 50 please note:

Mark Steyn, in a review of a Christopher Dickey article in Newsweek titles "War and Deliverance" makes the following point of what our culture is becoming:

"But the third and bigger point is that, enjoyable as they are, pop-culture metaphors aren't really of much use, especially when you're up against cultures where life is still defined by how you live as opposed to what you experience via media. It seems to me, for example, that when anti-war types bemoan Iraq as this generation's Vietnam "quagmire," older folks are thinking of the real Vietnam – the Gulf of Tonkin resolution and whatnot – but most anybody under 50 is thinking of Vietnam movies: some vague video-store mélange of "The Full Metal Deer Apocalypse."

Take the Scott Thomas Beauchamp debacle at the New Republic, in which the magazine ran an atrocity-a-go-go Baghdad diary piece by a serving soldier about dehumanized troops desecrating graves, abusing disfigured women, etc. It smelled phony from the get-go – except to the professional media class from whose ranks the New Republic's editors are drawn: To them, it smelled great, because it aligned reality with the movie looping endlessly through the windmills of their mind, a nonstop Coppola-Stone retrospective in which ill-educated conscripts are the dupes of a nutso officer class. "
(my emphasis)

There is a real world out there, with real goodness and REAL evil. Life is not a movie, and the sooner we all wake up to that fact the sooner we will resolve the many problems we have.

""Well, maybe the rest of the hippies are across the bay in San Francisco, where, as the Associated Press reports, "city health officials took steps Thursday toward opening the nation's first legal safe-injection room, where addicts could shoot up heroin, cocaine and other drugs under the supervision of nurses."

Meanwhile in Portland, Maine, the AP reports that "school officials on Thursday defended a decision to allow children as young as 11 to obtain birth-control pills at a middle-school health center."

In both San Francisco and Portland, however, smoking in bars is strictly prohibited. It's bad for your health, after all.""

11?? You have to be kidding!

Hillary and Sandy Berger

Picking criminals for your advisors is not a good strategy! Read Ronald S. Cass at RCP.

Only answer that makes sense to me is payback to Berger for his illegal activities! Could it be?

Gore is in great company!

Scott Johnson at PowerLine summarizes the "winners" of the Nobel prize over the last 20 years.

Since the rational world realizes it is a joke, Gore is an appropriate winner!

The World of the Left!

Porn is free speech, abortion is a privacy right, and a hate crime is somehow worse than a crime based on something else. You can't bash gays but feel free to bash Christians. Using kids to implement universal health care. And God forbid you should smoke that cigarette, that pays for the health care, in the bar of your choice. Don't dare mention Christ in a public school at Christmas, but Ramadan is welcome. This is the world of the left.

Say it again, Sam!

"No people will tamely surrender their Liberties, nor can
any be easily subdued, when knowledge is diffusd and Virtue is preservd. On the Contrary, when People are universally ignorant, and debauchd in their Manners, they will sink under their own weight without the Aid of foreign Invaders."

-- Samuel Adams (letter to James Warren, 4 November 1775)
