Filed in National by on November 30, 2008 53 Comments

So posits Neal Gabler in this morning’s LA Times op-ed. But there is another rendition of the story of modern conservatism, one that doesn’t begin with Goldwater and doesn’t celebrate his libertarian orientation. It is a less heroic story, and one that may go a much longer way toward really explaining the Republican Party’s past […]

This from “The National” As the crisis escalates, US politicians are split on whether to inject billions of dollars into the big three. Michael Castle, a Republican senator, underlined the divide last week when he said: “Is this a down payment or a final number? I’m not sure there is an easy recovery.” The United […]

It Is Official: I’m Still A Liberal

Filed in National by on November 29, 2008 11 Comments

I embrace freedom of choice in personal matters, but tend to support government intervention in the economy as a hedge against rapacious capitalism. I support a government-funded “safety net” to help the disadvantaged, and advocate regulation of business in the public interest. I tend to favor environmental regulations, defend civil liberties and free expression, support […]

Dana Garrett digs into the meaning of the “Black Friday” trampling in a matter of fact way that shines a spot light on our collective culpability. They didn’t stop to help him. That is the significant point. They acted as morally irresponsible as the people who trampled the victim. In fact, they did something more. […]

The merry pranksters over at Lawyers, Guns and Money have up a post discussing the Worst Sportscasters. The list looks too small to me, but I’ll throw in John Madden as my Worst Sportscaster. I’ll stipulate that the guy knows alot about football (and I’ll stipulate that I may be mistaken about this), but he […]

eHarmony settles with New Jersey gays. Wouldn’t it be interesting if, through it’s personality profile, the site started matching gays with youth pastors? As I read on, I find that the youth pastors are safe. The settlement gives the NJ plaintiff $5,000 and requires eHarmony to set up a site for people seeking same sex […]

What kind of wood doesn’t float? was a joke that was going around in the early 80s. The answer was Natalie Wood. Now depending on your age or your long-term memory, the punch line may or may not make any sense. However, after reading this post, you might come away with a slight smile or […]
