Whoopee! The idiot Nader is running for Prez. And lots of idiots will vote for him. GWB should give him a medal!

Lots of good historical quotes in this article. For example: "I will be voting to give the president of the United States the authority to use force -- if necessary -- to disarm Saddam Hussein because I believe that a deadly arsenal of weapons of mass destruction in his hands is a real and grave threat to our security." -- John Kerry, Oct. 9, 2002

I have posted a few items pointing out that the outsourcing of service jobs to India is beneficial to the people at large in both countries. One of the big complaints is the outsourcing of computer programming jobs to India. As a programmer myself, I have always thought that the possibilities there have been much exaggerated. Typically, writing a program involves a constant interaction between the programmer and the person who wants it written and you basically have to be in the same room together for that to work well -- not continents apart. One of my readers who is a much more experienced programmer than I am agrees.

Unbelievable stupidity: "They're called living wages. But they are the wages of death -- economic death. Santa Fe is the latest villain here, abetted by local union activists. The city government recently passed a minimum wage of $8.50 per hour, scheduled to take effect in 2004. Another hike kicks in by 2008, boosting the minimum to $10.50. The big jump in labor costs means that many businesses in Santa Fe will close down, or move to another town. And it means that employees in Santa Fe who were worth hiring at $5 or $6 an hour, but not worth hiring at $8.50, will be out of a job."

The "worker's paradise" of North Korea "Well known in Japan from TV and tabloid coverage, Kim Jong Il's "Entourage of Delight" is just that-a group of entertainers devoted to providing Kim Jong Il with delight and gaiety. The women of this entourage were frequently summoned to the "Number 8 Banquet Hall" in Pyongyang to perform elegant dances... During a banquet one night a group of five dancers in the entertainment entourage were performing a disco dance. Suddenly Kim Jong Il ordered, "Take off your clothes!" The girls took off their clothes, but then Kim told them to take it all off. They seemed surprised and could not hide their bewilderment, but they could not object to their Dear Leader's orders. In awkward embarrassment they stripped down and continued their performance in the nude. After a while he turned to his cabinet staff members and instructed them, "You guys dance with them too." And soon enough I, too, was ordered to dance. However, he cautioned us, "You'll dance, but you won't touch. If you touch, you're thieves.""

Dave Huber is a U.S. Middle School teacher and has a big post saying that behaviour problems in his classes are as enormous as those I recently noted in British schools.

The most succinct comment yet on John Kerry's alleged affair with an intern. Anyone smell a coverup?

The Wicked one says blondes are smarter, not dumber.


The Left have always wanted more spent on welfare and made "Fascism" a swear-word. President Bush deposed a brutal Fascist dictator and sponsored a big expansion of welfare. But instead of being admired by the Left, he is hated with a passion. What does that tell you about the Left? It tells you that they have no principles at all: That everything they have ever claimed to stand for is fake.

Another example of Leftist dishonesty: They blame the 9/11 attacks on "poverty" in the Islamic world. Yet most of the attackers were Saudis and Saudi Arabia is one of the world's richest countries!
