No, Texas isn't seceding from the Union, as has been rather sensationally
reported these last few days. But there's very good news, and it isn't
limited to the great state of Texas: the
State Sovereignty Movement Quietly Growing Not a new
"secesh," (whew!) but "expressions of fiscal authority directed
specifically at the growing cost of unfunded mandates being placed upon the
states by the federal government. ...the target ... is not President Obama,
but rather the Democrat-dominated Congress whose plans for massive bailouts
and expanded social programs ... come at an enormous cost to the states."

Once More Into the Breach Cal Thomas comments on George Mitchell's

Hizbullies Re-Arming. We knew they'd try that. Don't let 'em, Israel!
Mona Charen's always-insightful commentary on the ominous news from Israel: "We await the consequences elsewhere around the world -- from London to New York to Baghdad to Bali to Calcutta -- of jihadists who feel the wind at their backs."
We love this great music video from Israel! yalla ya Nazrallah! NOTE: You'll have to register on YouTube, since obviously someone decided that the best way to keep people from seeing (and appreciating) it would be to complain that it is "inappropriate." Don't let that frighten you away! Hey - I let my kids watch it, about a thousand times - two thousand if I'd have let them!)
I suggest the only people who will find it "inappropriate" are probably the same people who are giving themselves hernias over the Pope's non-insults.
May God be with Israel and all of her brave citizen warriors.
Wise man Thomas Sowell addresses biased reporting... Or, why are only some people presumed innocent until proven guilty, at least in the media?
And now, from the "Why am I NOT Surprised?" Department... The source is revealed! Robert Novak confesses: "I learned Valerie Plame's name from Joe Wilson's entry in 'Who's Who in America.'" The scariest part is that anyone would have sent Joe Wilson, who "outed" his own wife, to investigate anything!
A Whole Bunch of Great Lines on a Variety of Topics... From my favorite economist, Thomas Sowell: "Random Thoughts"
Delightful Quote No. 2: From Bill Buckley, referring to a hypothetical exercise in which one is required to write an essay on the "...stupidity of George Bush:" "...the temptations affect the thinking of those naturally attracted to condescension, an exercise which has the gratifying consequence of leaving you exalted." And there seems to be an epidemic of self-righteous self-exaltation on the political left these days. Must be heady stuff for the less-modest.
Delightful Quote of the Season: "...John Murtha, the reason soldiers invented fragging." Amen, sister!

Somebody's about to be in a heap 'o trouble.... This would be the Chinless Wonder (or more kindly, the jawline-challenged?) Assad, tin-pot ruler of Syria. Then again, knowing the UN.... This could be a guarantee of eternal life for this clown. Somebody tell that guy about chin implants.

The CIA vs. Bush And the American people are caught in the middle. Note especially this sickening item: "As the presidential race heated up, the C.I.A. permitted an analyst - who, we now know, is Michael Scheuer - to publish anonymously a book called "Imperial Hubris," which criticized the Iraq war. Here was an official on the president's payroll publicly campaigning against his boss. As Scheuer told The Washington Post this week, "As long as the book was being used to bash the president, they [the C.I.A. honchos] gave me carte blanche to talk to the media."
An Editor's Son: Storming Fallujah Dennis Anderson, editor of the Antelope Valley Press in Palmdale CA, and former embedded reporter in Iraq, has a son in the Marines who is now in the fight for Fallujah. God bless them both: his son, for his bravery and his service to our country, and Dennis, for giving words to the feelings that so many parents of our brave servicemen and women. Get the Kleenex box out before you read this one.
11-10-04 BTW - From what I'm reading and hearing in the media, I supposedly voted for Bush/Cheney because I am a member of the "Religious Right." Fat damn chance. So there.
I, and several million other Americans who are also not members of some "Religious Right," and may not even be particularly religious, voted for Bush because he's the best man for the job.
11-9-04 It never ceases to amaze me how a major political party can lose big in 2002 and 2004, and they still don't get it. They keep asking the rhetorical equivalent of, "Is it my breath?" No, I'm afraid it's your platform, your party, you message, and your candidates.
Mind you, I have a brother who is an elected official and who ran as a Dem, and a cousin, too, and they're both great guys and trustworthy servants of their communities. So don't email me and tell me I'm mean to Democrats. T'ain't so. But the Democratic party nationally doesn't seem to represent most Americans, and most Americans keep telling them that. So whom do they trot out as presidential and vice presidential candidates? The most liberal senator they have and a trial lawyer, of all things!
As long as the Democratic party continues to move farther and farther to the left, and away from us mainstream Americans in "flyover country," they can probably count on losing the big elections. The amazing thing is that it seems as if they keep looking for the right color to flatter their complexions in their TV ads, or the perfect shade of lip gloss, or something equally irrelevant. They're like that dorky guy who comes up to you at a party and asks you, "What's your sign, baby?"
Well, my sign was "Bush/Cheney '04" this year, folks! I voted for an economy that's continuing the grow. I voted for a fairer tax system (I hope). But most of all, I voted for national security. It doesn't matter if Social Security gets fixed if there's nothing left but a smoking hole in the ground where Washington, D. C. (or your hometown) once stood.
