"If Vietnam veterans speak out against John Kerry but the media doesn't cover it, does anyone hear them? In a convention report about Democratic presidential candidate John Kerry's relationship with his fellow Vietnam veterans, Dan Rather did not talk to a single one who opposes the Massachusetts Democrat's quest for higher office. That's especially odd considering that a new book featuring the accounts of a number of veterans who served with Kerry has been in the news of late".

The troops don't like Kerry: "John Kerry's heavily hyped cross-country bus tour stumbled out of the blocks yesterday, as a group of Marines publicly dissed the Vietnam War hero in the middle of a crowded restaurant.... "He imposed on us and I disagree with him coming over here shaking our hands," one Marine said, adding, "I'm 100 percent against [him]." A sergeant with 10 years of service under his belt said, "I speak for all of us. We think that we are doing the right thing in Iraq," before saying he is to be deployed there in a few weeks and is "eager" to go and serve."

Typical Leftist reliance on deception: John Kerry is doing his damndest to prevent people from knowing about the book he wrote when he was an antiwar activist. His team threatens people with lawsuits if they even reproduce the cover of the book. But it tells you here how to get a look at it while you can.

Heroic manipulator: "Mr. Kerry was assigned to Swiftboat 44 on December 1, 1968. Within 24 hours, he had his first Purple Heart. Mr. Kerry accumulated three Purple Hearts in four months with not even a day of duty lost from wounds, according to his training officer. It's a pity one cannot read his Purple Heart medical treatment reports which have been withheld from the public. The only person preventing their release is Mr. Kerry.... And within four days of his third Purple Heart, Mr. Kerry applied to take advantage of a technicality which allowed him to request immediate transfer to a stateside post."

It looks like I was right about Jason Soon yesterday. See towards the bottom of this article. A definite hater. A hater of those with more power and influence. Very Leftist but always sad to see when an intelligent person falls into such folly. But highly educated people are particularly prone to such hatreds. I set out why here.

A fabulous pro-American colmn by a Canadian here. (Via Peg Kaplan). Too good to excerpt. It always amazes me how anybody can overlook the basic truths about America. It just shows the dismal motivations of the critics.

An excellent statement here from a U.S. Marine about the importance of acknowledging evil in the world. Leftists HAVE TO deny that there is evil in people to cover up the evil that is in their own hearts -- as we see whenever Leftists get complete power (Stalin, Pol Pot etc.)

Arrogant Leftist elitism still thriving in Germany: "Michael Muller, deputy head of the Social Democrats' parliamentary party: Rejecting the idea of a referendum, he loftily declared, "Sometimes the electorate has to be protected from making the wrong decisions."

The memoir of the Iraq invasion by American commander General Tommy Franks sounds like good stuff. The American forces were CLEVER! How awful for the critics.

Wayne Lusvardi has given us a quick guide to who and what the current Islamic "Z Men" are

Dick McDonald reports a priceless bit of Democrat arrogance and elitism from the wife of the Iowa governor. She even dissed Black English! Imagine the explosion if a Republican did that! More here

Perhaps the original example of Leftist "projection": Marx condemned conventional religion as the "opium of the masses". Why? Because he had an opiate to peddle.

Why can those who claim to understand the dangers of meddling with a complex ecosystem like the natural environment, not understand that government interference with a complex system like the economy is perilous too?

The conflict between conservatives and Leftists is not usually a conflict between realists and idealists. Mostly it is a conflict between realists and people who will say anything to win applause
