This article is by a Leftist journalist who went and talked to many Bush voters in the "red" states. Despite its biases, it is a very vivid and touching portrait of the many good down-to-earth people who voted Bush in and Kerry out. I liked this comment that one of them made about Bush: "I think he's a good man with a good heart". I think that too. And the people who call him a "Nazi" show what THEY are.

Wow! The source most quoted in support of the global warming theory is the annual IPCC reports. One of the expert scientific authors of past reports has just pulled out of doing any future reports because he says his colleagues are making claims that run contrary to the scientific data. I suspect that global warming theory is on the brink of doing a Soviet-style collapse -- maybe even in the next 12 months. The latest evidence that cutting carbon emissions will actually INCREASE global warming is a second stake through the heart for the theory. See GREENIE WATCH for both documents.

A no-baloney man: "The president of Harvard University, Lawrence H. Summers, sparked an uproar at an academic conference Friday when he said that innate differences between men and women might be one reason fewer women succeed in science and math careers. Summers also questioned how much of a role discrimination plays in the dearth of female professors in science and engineering at elite universities." [It's been known for nearly 100 years that men and women have different patterns of achievement on ability tests. For instance, women do best on verbal abilities and men do best on visual/spatial abilities. Is it any wonder that men and women have job preferences to go with that?]

Arlene Peck: "Truly, I hate to sound negative, but it frightens me. The view from here is pre-1938, and the Muslims have such an edge now that no matter what they say, the United Nations is going to gleefully meet and vote to condemn the state of Israel. It is as though the Muslims have been given a 'pass' as a 'special' religious group, allowed to commit regular atrocities, such as beheading and cutting off hands and bombing anyone within range. And, folks, they can do it all in the name of Allah, but they truly believe Satan makes them do it - oh, and those nasty old Israelis.... It doesn't usually matter that no other religious group perpetrates their monstrous atrocities. Nobody ever questions how Muslims are the only ones out there who are doing their evil deeds"

Blacks waking up to the Dems? "Polls find young blacks less likely to call racism America's No. 1 issue. A Time/CNN poll found 89 percent of black teens consider racism in their own lives to be "a small problem" or "not a problem at all." Twice as many black teens as white believe that "failure to take advantage of available opportunities" is a bigger problem for blacks than discrimination. Polls and focus groups show younger blacks less likely to identify themselves as Democrats, and more likely to support partial privatization of Social Security, school vouchers and the abolition of race-based preferences. This spells trouble for the Democratic Party and its monolithic black vote".

Power is the only Leftist principle: "Democratic lawmakers are pushing legislation that would take a multimillion-dollar bite out of one of their party's biggest political enemies - the Building Industry Association of Washington. The move sets up a bitter showdown between the BIAW, a powerful conservative force, and the liberal Washington State Labor Council, which has been trying for years to clip the association's wings.... Rep. Cary Condotta of Wenatchee, the ranking Republican on the Commerce and Labor Committee, called the bill, which would reduce the BIAW's income from workers'-compensation refunds, a "blatant political attack" on one of the GOP's biggest supporters. And he called the timing of the legislation "very suspect.""

My latest posting on MarxWords notes that Engels advocated police state methods for dissenters. My latest posting on "A scripture blog" looks at what a Greek says about the Greek of John 1:1. (Actually, I hate calling Greeks Greeks. They have always called themselves Hellenes and Greece is Hellas. It was the early Romans who started calling them Greeks, for reasons that are still speculative).



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.
