The media's double standard. What liberal media? It's a myth obviously. God this is infuriating.

A fascinating article from Anthony Daniels, aka Theodore Dalrymple, a British psychologist who works at a prison in northern England. He sees the dregs of British society and writes about it often. The Brits are worse off than we are in that they haven't even begun to fix the social engineering disasters that caused the social disfunction we see all around us.

Well, this is encouraging. I hope we hear more of this from the Arab world. Christ, enough of them have been educated here you'd think some of it would start to sink in eventually.

A piece from the Toronta Globe and Mail on the left-wing's tantrum yesterday in London. Moral blindness doesn't quite describe it. I tried to watch a few minutes of it on C-Span last night. I heard speakers claim that Muslims are, for some strange reason, being blamed for terrorism in order to divide "the people." But they weren't going to let them get away with it, no sir. They were going to knock over a paper mache statue of George Bush. A more empty gesture cannot be imagined. In so doing they mock the suffering of the Iraqis over the decades and ridicule the exhiliration Iraqis felt over their first taste of freedom. They care nothing for 300,000 in mass graves, for the people thrown off buildings, for the tongues, ears, and hands cut off and people fed into shredders. Yet they try to claim the moral high ground. There is no shame left in this world.

For all those twits in the streets of London today with their Bush=Hitler posters and puppets, where is the American version of this? And don't say Guantanamo.

Apparently this is what the Palestinians do with some of the millions of dollars we send them every year. Nice. It really makes me sympathetic to their cause.

Prague Revisited - The evidence of an Iraq/al-Qaida connection. What the hell is going on here? It actually appears that the FBI is working to cover this up for some reason. I've read many times that the Czechs stood by their claim that Atta met with Iraqi officials in Prague. But I've also read that the FBI had debunked it somehow. Now it looks like the FBI was lying. WTF?

Bush's visit to Britain should be a real spectacle. As this article points out, it will attract every loser and malcontent in Western Europe to London so they can march around, scream and yell about their moral superiority. No one ever votes for these people when their candidates run for office so I guess this is the only way they can get attention for their "ideas" if I can use that term. Essentially, their only idea is that whatever the US does, or doesn't do, it is wrong. Anyone who opposes what the US wants is right. Thank God Hitler rose to power when he did. If he were to come to power today it would be nearly impossible to stop him because of useful idiots lose in the world today like those in the streets of London.

Al-Qaida's Latest Target - Understanding the Istanbul synagogue bombings. Chris Hitchens has another good one. Arabs don't care where they do it, as long as they are killing Jews.

A good piece from Jacob Sullum on how Bush is anything but "conservative" when it comes to spending. Yet all you hear is how he is a hard core right wing extremist conservative, the most conservative in history. It just shows how little meaning words have anymore.

2003 Generosity Index Isn't this interesting? It seems that the greedy Republican states (ones that voted for George Bush in 2000) that don't care about anyone or anything but getting rich have been slandered. What a surprise.

A great editorial from the Mobile Register on the left and judges.

A fascinating article here from the Asia Times on the disadvantage we're at in fighting radical Islam. The point he makes (as have others) is that it's similar to Communism in the 1930, with fervent devotees willing to undermine their own countries, while our elites are doing everything they can to teach students that there is nothing in Western Civilization worth fighting for. The best lack all conviction, while the worst are full of passionate intensity.

A good piece for Veteran's Day from the Guardian. I particularly like this comment on the thought that it is incomprehensible that "children of the 60s," who listened to John Lennon and Joan Baez, could actually support going to war:

The military conflicts we have been 'marched into' by Mr Blair are Kosovo, Sierra Leone, Afghanistan and Iraq. That isn't because the PM never understood the words of 'Imagine', but because it transpired that the Taliban, the hard men of the Baath, the amputating militias of West Africa, the Hutu Interahamwe and the Serb army of Radko Mladic had been brought up on something other than Joan Baez.

Yeah, if only we'd sit down and explain to them why war is not healthy for children and other living things they'd see the error of their ways.

We're From the Government and We're Here to Help Stories like these help me to understand why people join militias. It would be hard not to do something insane if caught up in this type of mess.

The DEA's War on Pain Doctors This is disgusting. Obviously doctors who deal on the street are asking for trouble but the ones described here don't belong in trouble but deserve a medal.

Gore Accuses Bush of 'Big Brother' Policy Now we know what President Gore would have done in the wake of 9/11. Nothing. Absolutely nothing, beside maybe going to the UN to ask the French for permission to send a strongly worded letter to the Taliban expressing our great disappointment over what they helped pull off in New York and Washington. Then he would have apologized for whatever it was we did to deserve the attack. More lies have been told about the Patriot Act than any other issue that I can think of. All it did was give law enforcement the same abilities to fight terrorism that it currently has for fighting organized crime. But if you can twist and distort it to bash Bush and Ashcroft the Democrats will do it, the country be damned.

As I read the story of the disappearing penises I was reminded of an old movie line, "...she turned me into a newt! I got better." I think Achmed may have been underendowed from the outset and finally found his scapegoat.

Muslim paranoia: Enemies made us impotent! Another good one from Mark Steyn. It speaks volumes about Islamic culture, which hasn't produced anything significant (besides terrorism) in about 1,000 years, that its people can believe in nonsense like this. That is what makes them so dangerous. Combine ignorance with technology, apes with rifles, and you have the mess that is the Middle East.

Restating the Case for War You have to love Chris Hitchens. An unrepentant leftist who nonetheless understands why we're in Iraq and explains it succinctly. It's too bad Bush can't explain it this clearly.

A Burden Too Heavy to Put Down Boy, I hope enough people realize this. If we quit we open the floodgates. Iraq would make Afghanistan look like childsplay. Saddam would come roaring back and once again make everyone pay for his mistakes.

Even the Brits, and liberal ones at that see that the American Left has gone crazy and would rather see American soldiers die that have George Bush be proven right. And I don't think that's an overstatement. This attitude has been standard in Congress for years, where they'd rather have an issue to use against Republicans than actually solve a problem by passing a bill.

Bush and Muslims I wish we wouldn't suck up to these people so much. They need to be called to account for what at least a third of the adherents believe and support. We may not be waging a religious war, but they certainly are.
