A rendezvous with destiny

As the democrat party wrings their hands in a desperate attempt to decide upon an official date of surrender in Iraq, I am reminded by a speech by Ronald Reagan, some 43 years ago…

Let’s set the record straight. There is no argument over the choice between peace and war, but there is only one guaranteed way you can have peace–and you can have it in the next second–surrender.

Admittedly there is a risk in any course we follow other than this, but every lesson in history tells us that the greater risk lies in appeasement, and this is the specter our well-meaning liberal friends refuse to face–that their policy of accommodation is appeasement, and it gives no choice between peace and war, only between fight and surrender.

Much has changed over the past four decades since Reagan gave told us that we have a “rendezvous with destiny. “

Unfortunately, the political left has not changed their first and basic instinct of appeasement. Their policies are dangerous, and a clear and present threat to the security of the Republic. President Bush will veto their surrender bill. That rendezvous that Reagan spoke of is drawing near.

SCOTUS poised to strike down McCain-Feingold

In a NY Sun report from Jeff Goldstein, if the indications gleaned from yesterday’s oral arguments are correct, the Court is leaning toward striking down key First Amendment provisions in the McCain-Feingold bill related to campaign spending by grassroots organizations. Ironically, this could work in Senator McCain’s favor in the Presidential primaries, effectively removing one of the key issues which cause many conservatives to be less than enthusiastic about his candidacy.

Since deciding to go “all-in”, and stake his Presidential bid on the Iraq War, McCain’s fortunes have improved considerably among the conservative base. The Court’s apparent willingness to do what many thought should have been done four years ago will give McCain an opportunity to re-frame his position in a way that will be more acceptable to the base.

After a concerted effort to reach out religious conservatives who were offended by his statements in the 2000 SC mccain081.gifprimaries, McCain now will need to address the 800 pound gorilla in the room: illegal immigration, an issue that will be, in this writer’s opinion the prevailing issue among conservatives as the situation in Iraq improves.

Two out of three bloggers prefer Nuke™ brand carbon credits

emissionstraderof4.gif Fiona Harvey and Stephen Fidler in London In the (UK) Financial Times report on the growing scam emanating from the do-gooders:

Companies and individuals rushing to go green have been spending millions on “carbon credit” projects that yield few if any environmental benefits.

The FT investigation found widespread failings:

■ Widespread instances of people and organisations buying worthless credits that do not yield any reductions in carbon emissions.

■ Industrial companies profiting from doing very little – or from gaining carbon credits on the basis of efficiency gains from which they have already benefited substantially.

■ Brokers providing services of questionable or no value.

■ A shortage of verification, making it difficult for buyers to assess the true value of carbon credits.

Nuke™ brand Carbon Credits are 97% caffeine-free, and are proven to reduce vulgarity by the threat of massive lawsuits from unauthorized cussing. At $1 per cussword, they’re still quite a bargain! Plus, be sure to catch our “carbon-credit FREE Fridays” on the World Famous Friday Open Thread.

Just click on the “carbon-credit” pixel in the right hand side-bar and you too can feel good about saving the planet.

(*Full-flavor caffeinated credits also available)
