V.D. Hanson has a good takedown on the crazy California Leftie Senator Boxer: "The senator once went after erstwhile rival Bruce Herschensohn, Senator Packwood, and Clarence Thomas for their purported sexual insensitivities-but urged forgiveness for President Clinton's more egregiously inappropriate conduct, whose preemptive bombing of Milosevic she supported despite the absence of either Senate or UN approval... Then Boxer proclaimed of the professed reason to go to war: "It was WMD period.". Boxer's statement was simply not true. Read the joint congressional declaration that was approved on October 11, 2002 by Senator Boxer's colleagues".

Greenie gets it right for once: "African leaders agreed bold plans at the weekend to preserve the world's second biggest rainforest area but Kenya's Nobel prize-winning environmentalist told them they would need to root out corruption to succeed. At a conference in Brazzaville, central African heads of state signed a treaty pledging to protect the forests of the Congo Basin from massive poaching and illegal or irresponsible logging which threaten the flora and fauna of the region".

This article shows what a crock the "mentally retarded" defence is. It mentions a murderer saved from executuion because of his low IQ. But his IQ has now risen substantially. IQ does not change much so the earlier low scores were just malingering.

How pesky for the Dems. Their great hero, FDR, seems to have wanted private savings accounts for Social Security purposes too: "Second, old-age benefits, including compulsory and voluntary annuities"

Protestor motivations: "Protesters shout about the tragedy of death in war, to be sure. But according to their own Godless worldviews, their reasons for opposing war are without foundation. Why would death or suffering be wrong or worth opposing if, according to atheism or materialistic science, it's been happening as a natural part of the bloody evolutionary process for millions of years?... D.C. Mayor Anthony Williams, no friend of the Bush administration, nevertheless was quoted in the Washington Post as saying in so many words that these people make him very angry because they're "so selfish that they can't give him this one day." Often, when the police swarm in after things get especially rowdy, protesters will shout in exact unison the common canard, "These are our streets!" while they struggle mightily in the officers' clutches, perhaps attempting to reach into their pockets and present their deeds for the property. No, they're not your streets. They belong to all of us. Didn't your parents ever teach you to share? Rooted in that selfishness is an extreme closed-mindedness as well. They're convinced their opposition to war is just, but refuse to acknowledge that others feel the same way about defending their beliefs - and defending their nation from those who would do it harm".

The FCC backslides on unbundling: "The FCC has been one of the most rogue agencies in recent memory. Charged with writing regulations to carry out the will of Congress in the Telecom Act of 1996, the agency has been rebuked by the D.C. District Court no fewer then three times for writing regulations that flew directly in the face of the act's deregulatory intentions.... Finally this year, the commission seemed to get religion. In the last months of 2004, the commission made the correct decision on voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP), determining states could not regulate this transforming new technology.... In December, the FCC announced the results of its fourth attempt at network-sharing rules. Until recently, the assumption was that, chastened by the courts and driven by the free-market convictions of Chairman Michael Powell, the commission would do the right thing and quickly phase out line-sharing and unbundling regulations. But the FCC has backslid. Oddly, although the commission acknowledges the damage done by unbundling regulations, it can't resist leaving them in place for another year on mass-market lines and indefinitely on high-capacity lines used by businesses... It is unbelievable that almost a decade after the 1996 act, the FCC still has not carried it out."

My latest posting on MarxWords notes some more ferocious antisemitic abuse from Engels. My latest posting on "A scripture blog" looks at texts which tend to show Jesus as a Leftist.



That power only, not principles, is what matters to Leftists is perfectly shown by the 2004 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.

The Big Lie of the late 20th century was that Nazism was Rightist. It was in fact typical of the Leftism of its day. It was only to the Right of Stalin's Communism. The very word "Nazi" is a German abbreviation for "National Socialist"
