There is a very well-balanced article here which says that the "death" of God in many people's minds has caused many of the same people to seek secular authorities to blame for things like the Tsunami. And when you are looking around for someone to blame who is the first candidate? America, of course! Logic is not needed. And they call religion illogical!

For those who take an interest in such things, I have recently put up on Majority rights my explanation of why the Chinese score above our average on IQ and the Indians score below.

IQ and liberal hypocrisy "A Yankee leftist acquaintance of mine sent me an email shortly after the election telling me that before I gloat about Bush's victory (I replied that my candidate, the Libertarian, lost too), I might find the attached chart of interest--he attached that chart showing IQ by red and blue state. The chart is pretty striking in that the average IQ of almost every red state is below that of the blue states. No doubt this is intended to show that Democrats are smarter than Republicans.... What is hypocritical about this chart is that it is circulated by the same people who bristled at Charles Murray's comments about race and IQ in "The Bell Curve". [The list of State IQs is of course a hoax]

There is an article here that points out that the vast U.S. defence bureaucracy is no better than any other vast bureaucracy. It wastes money prodigiously on things that don't make Americans any safer: "The defense budget is rife with weapon systems that are unneeded, perform poorly, or were designed to fight the now defunct Soviet Union. A few examples follow. After the dramatic decline of the only potent adversarial submarine threat, the U.S. Navy has designed and is producing a new generation of Virginia-class attack submarines. The Marines have sunk billions into developing the accident-prone V-22 tiltrotor transport aircraft, which is designed to take off and land like a helicopter but fly like a plane. Despite all of the billions slathered on the program, the aircraft's design may be fatally flawed. The Air Force's stealth F-22 fighter, originally designed to counter advanced Soviet fighters that were never built, has only a few remaining enemies to fight -- a limited number of porkbusting congressional representatives."

Coddling killers: "Will Victoria Jo Stinnett ever celebrate a happy birthday? I very much doubt it. As soon as she is old enough to understand, she'll be haunted by the trauma of her birth -- ripped from her dead mother's womb by alleged killer Lisa Montgomery. Yet monster though she undoubtedly is, Montgomery is already reaping the benefits of the insidious root-causes racket. Root causes are the rationalizations liberals give -- usually after the fact -- for their immoral actions or for the immoral actions of others. The paradox at the heart of the root-causes fraud is that causal theoretical explanations are invoked only after bad deeds have been committed. Good deeds have no need of mitigating circumstances."

The Spectator has a very sarcastic article here about the recent arrest of Britain's Nick Griffin -- a leading anti-immigration politician. The grounds for the arrest were about as flimsy as those the old Soviet KGB might have used -- making it apparent that the British police are now a political police.

The film "Team America: World Police" has just opened in Australia. Miranda Devine has a good review of how it skewers the Left.

If British readers think that the British Conservatives are hopeless these days, it might perhaps be a small consolation to note that the Canadian conservatives are just as gutless.

Cheat-seeking Missiles has a big summary of the blogospheric response to the Tsunami.

For half a century, Leftist psychologists have been preaching the gospel that conservatives are "authoritarian". We learn on my new MarxWords blog, however, that Engels thought the opposite -- that revolutionaries are authoritarian.

That power only, not principles, is what matters to Leftists is perfectly shown by the Kerry campaign. They put up a man whose policies seemed to be 99% the same as George Bush's even though the Left have previously disagreed violently with those policies. "Whatever it takes" is their rule.

Leftists are phonies. For most of them all that they want is to sound good. They don't care about doing good. That's why they do so much harm. They don't really care what the results of their policies are as long as they are seen as having good intentions.
