Australia's Leftist State governments are proposing a massive re-socialization of schools and hospitals: "EIGHT Labor premiers and chief ministers are working on a radical plan to overhaul the way the nation runs its hospitals and schools. They are considering proposals forcing all schools - public and private - to accept students who cannot afford to pay fees. They also are looking at "enrolling" families with a selected GP or health clinic for life." Too many Australians have escaped to the private sector for the idea to be a vote-winner, though.

The NYT has an adulatory review of the latest book about Fascism: The anatomy of Fascism by Robert. O. Paxton -- in which the author claims that Hitler was an "antisocialist". That would have been news to Hitler! Hitler did after all call the political party he led "The National Socialist German Worker's Party". I might say more about all the Leftist distortions involved in Paxton's book at greater length tomorrow but I suspect that I have said it all already.

USA Today is back to doing good editorials again -- this time condemning government intervention in the airline business. Excerpt: "That's the type of meddling Congress rejected when it deregulated the industry 26 years ago to let customer demand, not federal bureaucrats, determine flights and prices"

Have Saddam's WMDs been found? "In virtually every case - chemical, biological, nuclear and ballistic missiles - the United States has found the weapons and the programs that the Iraqi dictator successfully concealed for 12 years from U.N. weapons inspectors."

There has of course been lately much pontificating about the nature of Islam and why it is so anti-Western. Two of the better efforts are here and here. I myself don't think such debates matter a hill of beans. It is clear that only an armed response has any chance of restraining the terrorists. They won't be debated into giving up violence. Israel has been very peaceful lately after they knocked off the last two Hamas leaders.

This may be the last we hear of the disgusting Amirault case -- where virtually the entire Massachusetts establishment colluded to keep an innocent man in jail for 18 years. But since when did America's so-called "liberals" ever really care about liberty or the little guy? All they cared about in this case was saving face for themselves and their cronies.

The Policeman's blog continues to show what a mockery British policing is these days. I don't think I'll visit Britain again any time soon. "The old grey mare aint what she used to be".

China Hand is back blogging again -- with posts on buying a car and running a small business in China.

The Left have always wanted more spent on welfare and made "Fascism" a swear-word. President Bush deposed a brutal Fascist dictator and sponsored a big expansion of welfare. But instead of being admired by the Left, he is hated with a passion. What does that tell you about the Left? It tells you that they have no principles at all: That everything they have ever claimed to stand for is fake.

All politicians seek power but conservatives bring with them a genuine concern for the welfare of their country. Leftists bring only their hate-filled Stalinist hearts and their pretend compassion
