There is an article here, by disgraced Australian Leftist Richard Butler, that is apparently very popular in Leftist circles at the moment. He argues with remarkable logic that America and Israel should "[keep] their side of the bargain" as promised in the nuclear non-proliferation treaty. Since Israel was never in the treaty, it is a great mystery to figure out what bargain Butler is referring to. The treaty is however a cold war relic so should probably be re-negotiated if time permitted. The Iran problem is an imminent one however. And only someone as strange as Richard Butler (or perhaps Jimmy Carter) would suggest that America could stop Iran from developing nukes by itself demolishing its nukes. America has shown its responsibility and restraint with nukes by not using them for 60 years. Anybody who sees signs of responsibility and restraint in the Islamists is living in cloud-cuckoo land.

Wonders will never cease! The BBC has just broadcast a TV program that tells it like it is about Britain's immigration problems and it looks like the Dutch have gone off the whole EU idea.

Leftist persuasion methods have not changed much since Stalin: "Police say Michelle Fernandez, 35, was chased for miles Tuesday by an irate 31-year-old Tampa man who cursed at her as he held up an anti-Bush sign and tried to run her off the road. His sign, about the size of a business letter, read: Never Forget Bush's Illegal Oil War Murdered Thousands in Iraq. "I guess this was a disgruntled Democrat," Tampa Police spokesman Joe Durkin said. "Maybe he has that sign with him so he's prepared any time he comes up against a Republican." Police arrested Nathan Alan Winkler at his home on N Cleveland Street near Hyde Park within an hour of the incident...."I was just almost run off the road by a man," she told the dispatcher.... "He told our officers that he just got mad at her, so he went after her," Durkin said.... "This could have been tragic, for her and her children and for other people on the road as this was going on," Durkin said. ..... Records show Winkler has been registered as a Democrat since 1996 .... Michelle Fernandez said Wednesday night, her nerves still frayed. "But here he is protesting the war and lost lives, and he is going to put me and my children in danger?"

U.N. still the terrorists' friend: "The United Nations must recognize Hezbollah as a force to be reckoned with in implementing the U.N. resolution calling for the withdrawal of all Syrian forces from Lebanon and the disarmament of the country's militias, Secretary-General Kofi Annan said Tuesday.... Annan said the world needs to accept that in every society different groups may hold different views.... "But even the Hezbollah - if I read the message on the placards they are using - they are talking about non-interference by outsiders ... which is not entirely at odds with the Security Council resolution, that there should be withdrawal of Syrian troops," Annan told reporters".

Paradox of Illinois Laws: "No kids, stop playing video games!! You should be having sex and getting abortions! Yes, that's right. In Illinois if you are under 18 you can't get your ears pierced, take medicine in school, open a bank account, get a job, or for the most part go to the bathroom without your parents permission. Now you can't buy video games (and this is NOT a defense of those games), but you can get an abortion. You can't be trusted with Grand Theft Auto but you can be trusted to make life or death decisions without a parent. This is the logic of a blue state".

The Alamo: Something Leftists will never understand: "It is that time of year for me to remind my readers about the magnificent stand by the defenders of The Alamo back in 1836. The Alamo fell on March 6 of that year. For more than 13 days, 186 brave and determined patriots withstood Santa Anna's seasoned army of over 5,000 troops. To a man, the defenders of that mission fort knew they would never leave those ramparts alive. They had several opportunities to leave and live, yet they chose to fight and die. How foolish they must look to this generation of spoiled Americans! It is difficult to recall that stouthearted men such as Davy Crockett, Will Travis and Jim Bowie really existed. ... There was something different about them, however. They possessed a commitment to liberty that transcended personal safety and comfort."

Bigoted NAACP: "Doesn't anyone wonder why the NAACP does not have events celebrating the first black woman secretary of state? Why does an organization whose mission is to advance the lot of blacks not celebrate Clarence Thomas, our black Supreme Court justice?"

The poor old Leftists! Still answering arguments with abuse: "a large part of the conservative blogosphere is nothing more than old style slime artists with a shiny new medium to abuse, while another large part either wittingly or unwittingly passes along their swill as a supposed groundswell of grass roots outrage. Peek underneath the rock and it's not a pretty sight".

My latest posting on MarxWords notes that Marx lived high on his father's money. My latest posting on "A scripture blog" has some comments and challenges from a Christadelphian.



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"
