Character Is The Issue

Monday, October 27th, 2008

From ExileStreet.com

by Burt Prelutsky | Los Angeles

I get a big kick out of Democrats insisting that the Republicans should concentrate on the issues instead of focusing on Barack Obama’s own words and affiliations. They call it negative campaigning. It reminds me [...]

Decision Time

Friday, October 24th, 2008

by J. F. Kelly, Jr. | Coronado

Election Day approaches. It is decision time at last, after a seemingly interminable, mind-numbing campaign that lasted nearly two years and consumed hundreds of millions of dollars. The process takes far too long and is too wasteful of resources that could be far better spent. It should not take [...]

Barack Obama’s Anti-Israel Alliances

Friday, October 24th, 2008

by Rachel Neuwirth | Los Angeles

Barack Obama claims to be a supporter of Israel and a friend of the Jewish people. But many of the people who helped him in the course of his rise to political power, or whom he helped during his political ascent, are extremely anti-Israel, or even outright anti-Semitic. Let’s examine [...]

California Clergy Missing in Action on Prop 8

Thursday, October 23rd, 2008

by Janet M. LaRue

Where are California’s pastors in the fight over preserving marriage?

Californians passed Proposition 22 in 2000 with a 61.4 percent vote to keep marriage solely between a man and a woman, and to preclude California’s recognition of same-sex “marriages” executed elsewhere.

By one vote last May, the California Supreme Court held the people’s law [...]

Consider McCain’s middle name, not Obama’s

Thursday, October 23rd, 2008

by Gary Galles | Malibu

In this year’s presidential campaign, some have used Barack Obama’s middle name—Hussein—to fan fears. But if we are looking to names for guidance, John McCain’s middle name—Sydney—would be better.

The reason is that Algernon Sydney, put to death for treason 325 years ago for insisting that the British king was not [...]

NASA’s James Hansen Goes Extreme

Wednesday, October 22nd, 2008

by Amy Kaleita | San Francisco

NASA’s James Hansen, head of the Goddard Institute for Space Studies, is no stranger to controversy. But in September, Dr. Hansen took his activism to another level by endorsing “ecovandalism” in a British court.

Dr. Hansen, who holds an M.S. in astronomy and a Ph.D. in physics, comes billed as one [...]

Reconsidering Why We Should Vote

Wednesday, October 22nd, 2008

by Gary Galles | Malibu
As election day nears, America’s quadrennial get-out-the-vote frenzy is trying to browbeat voters into exercising their franchise. Unfortunately, the arguments used reflect seriously flawed logic.

“If you don’t vote, you don’t have a voice in government.” This is one of many arguments based on the premise that your vote will [...]

No One Is Laughing Now

Tuesday, October 21st, 2008

by Jon Coupal | Sacramento

Some months ago, a baby-boomer friend of mine told me his retirement plan was to “work until I die.” We both chuckled.

No one who has watched the equity in their homes and the value of their investments virtually vaporize before their eyes in recent weeks would find this funny. Many of [...]

(Almost) Unbelievable

Tuesday, October 21st, 2008

by Chuck DeVore | Irvine

The pro-tax, pro-big government, teachers’ union just gave $1 million to oppose traditional marriage.

In 27 years of political involvement, I’ve come close to seeing it all. Today, I think I have.

Dissecting Liberals

Monday, October 20th, 2008

From ExileStreet.com

by Burt Prelutsky | Los Angeles
