Comments: March 2010

Speaking up for Jim Webb. (Webb was elected Senator in 2006, not 2004.)

On the expense and disruption of Presidential visits. Note also that there is a trickle-down effect: many a self-important governor and mayor will imitate the Presidential way of travel.

On the left and children of all ages.

On protests against CA education budget cuts. (Scroll down to 'gs said' or 'March 6, 2010 7:34 AM'.)

David Cameron reminds me of John Lindsay, not John McCain.

On Charlie Rangel's exit.

On the GOP establishment and it's ignoring of Paul Ryan. (Unfortunately, getting too specific about budget cuts opens you to attacks by supporters of those programs: you don't care about national defense, you don't care about The Children, etc etc

Why what is not happening could be worse than what is.

On Robert Frost's Design, Intelligent Design, and evolution. (Scroll down to ''gs said' or to 'March 9, 2010 11:05 AM')

On Rachel Corrie. John O'Neill's phrase about "rich American kids vacationing in other peoples miseries" is spot on.

In support of Amazon's retaliation against Colorado's taxation efforts--but cautioning that the company acts against the public interest when it suits its purposes.

On David Brooks: here and here.

Suspicion of the Republican resurgence.

On wrecking the country via immigration.

On the gravity of Obamacare: here, here, here, here, here, and here.

On getting illegal-alien amnesty through Congress, and the role of data overload in contemporary politics.

On Bush's Ben Tre logic. On Limbaugh's expertise in financial economics.

More on healthcare and Congressional machinations: here, here, here, and here.

On Obama and American Jews: here and here.

On the role of spiritual experience in the religious right's politics: here, here, and here.

On Michele Bachmann and Obamacare repeal. Also here, here, here, and here.
