Good one! "A nationally syndicated columnist who is openly homosexual is offering what he calls "a truly radical step" to curb unsafe sex -- forcing HIV-positive homosexual men who knowingly or negligently spread the virus to be financially accountable to their affected sexual partners"

Leftist journalists let themselves off the hook: "Media coverage of the Iraq war by the American media was not biased in favour or against the war, according to new research, despite claims the coverage was generally biased and negative. The Project for Excellence in Journalism, a Washington think tank affiliated with Columbia University's school of journalism, looked at more than 2000 stories in newspapers and on television and websites. Most were "straight" news reports, according to the survey's director, Tom Rosenstiel, with 25 per cent of the stories positive and 20 per cent negative. The rest could not be classified one way or the other". But some things were too blatant to be glossed over: "The report also looks at coverage of the presidential election campaign last year. It found 36 per cent of stories on Mr Bush were negative compared with 12 per cent for John Kerry, with 20 per cent of stories positive for Mr Bush, compared with 30 per cent for Senator Kerry. Mr Rosenstiel said these figures did not necessarily reflect bias"

British disgrace: "The British military "tolerates" bullying in its ranks, a long-awaited report said today following an investigation triggered by the deaths of four young army recruits. The report by a parliamentary defence committee said the military - particularly the army - failed to block abuse of its soldiers and called for an independent commission to evaluate future complaints of bullying and harassment.... The inquiry was launched in November after new allegations emerged over abuses at the Deepcut training camp in Surrey, southeast England, where four recruits, aged 17 to 20, died from gunshot wounds in mysterious circumstances between 1995 and 2002. A police inquiry released last year into their deaths revealed more than 100 claims of gang rape, sexual harassment, racism and systematic bullying at Deepcut.... it slammed the "lack of transparency in the investigative process" following the deaths, and said that military and police investigators should "think murder" instead of writing off some deaths as suicides. Relatives of the Deepcut four have rejected army explanations that the soldiers killed themselves - one recruit suffered two bullet wounds to the head - while police have said no evidence of murder could be found."

Nathan Tabor is continuing his campaign of using the internet for consumer protection. All libertarians will approve. Nashville, Tennessee is the problem spot today.

More attention-seeking behaviour "Those fish-lovers at People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals have added Vice President Dick Cheney to the public figures on their most-wanted list. Just a few weeks after they asked former President Jimmy Carter to turn in his rod and reel, they are urging Cheney to give up fishing. "We hope," says PETA's Karin Robertson , "that you will agree that tormenting these sensitive animals is a pastime that belongs in the past.""

Logical Meme has some good comments about a recent study that seems to show that watching TV makes you more conservative! I think that watching TV probably does have some tendency to make reality more vivid and reality is certainly the enemy of Leftism. People would still believe in Communism if they didn't know how it pans out in reality. No wonder Leftists keep trying to tell us that there is no such thing as reality!

My latest posting on MarxWords shows that Marx welcomed economic depression. My latest posting on "A scripture blog" has a few more comments on the NT teachings about the day of judgment.



That power only, not principles, is what matters to Leftist movers and shakers 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.

Leftist ideologues 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 and can con "the masses" into giving them power.

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"
