You’ve probably read about Pamela Geller of late, or seen her on the news. Most recently, she received a long profile in The New York Times. She has a book out with Robert Spencer, “The Post-American Presidency: The Obama Administration’s War on America” and a very successful blog, Atlas Shrugs. Geller has also been unfairly [...]
No this post isn’t just about John Edwards cheating on his cancer-stricken wife. But here’s a question: Why aren’t we allowed to talk about the “private lives” of politicians? I ask because questioners are raising questions about Australia’s first female PM, Julia Gillard and her former lovers. Meanwhile, anti-questioners in the elite media are questioning [...]
Can Republicans and so-called Blue Dog Democrats benefit from following the Australian elections? I know Obama is paying attention. Why? Because it looks like a debate over immigration.

One: What do atheists do on Sunday mornings? (Sorry, I had to ask.)

In George Orwell’s classic 1984, the state becomes God and we meet thought criminals like Ampleforth. His big mistake was to allow the “G” word to remain at the end of one of Kipling’s poems. For his sins he shall pay! Even sweet church bells are silenced. Likewise, [...]
No serious person believes our “private” lives have no impact whatsoever on society at large.
