Hitler's Brownshirts are not dead: "The group is called "National People's Action."... A more accurate description is left-wing goon squad.. what distinguishes NPA from other liberal advocacy groups is its tactics. The group engages in what it calls "direct action" -- publicizing the home addresses of business and government leaders it wants to shake down and then busing in protesters and schoolchildren (using public school buses) to invade the private property of their victims and intimidate their families... After meeting in Washington for its annual convention this weekend, NPA members descended on the Washington, D.C., homes of Labor Secretary Elaine Chao and White House adviser Karl Rove... after chanting and knocking on Rove's door, the "crowd then grew more aggressive, fanning around the three accessible sides of Rove's house, tracking him through the many windows, waving signs that read 'Say Yes to DREAM' and pounding on the glass.""

The Happy Carpenter is a small businessman and he thinks he knows why fewer American jobs are being created at the moment than the economic upturn would lead one to expect. He thinks that many small businessmen (the major creaters of jobs) have hit a tipping point. He says that the incredible labyrinth of government regulations that the "liberals" have created has now got so bad that many small businessmen are too fearful to hire anybody -- in case they inadvertently fall foul of some regulation and it ends up sending them broke. So that, even if they are doing well, they will not expand their business if it means taking the risk of hiring someone. It's safer to stay small. For many small businessmen, in other words, the "liberals" have largely killed off the American Dream of making it big. No doubt gamblers, optimists and the legally savvy will continue to hire but limiting job creation to them means a lot of people will stay unemployed.

Today's recipe is for my pick of Japanese cuisine -- Ton Katsu (Don Kats to the Koreans). Actually, the Japanese say they got this off the Germans but it must have been a long time ago. See here.


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.

Three more examples 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! They also say that they oppose racism yet support "affirmative action" -- which judges people by the colour of their skin! They say that they care about "the poor" but how often do you hear them calling for the one thing that would bring about a worldwide economic boom in poor countries -- the USA and the EU abandoning their agricultural protectionism? Leftists obviously care more about conservative farmers than they do about the poor!
