AP Reports Democratic Talking Points in Health Care Debate

Reason vs. Irrationalism:
Utopian New Left Just Like Old Left
‘Avatar’ and Boycotts: When the Left Does and Doesn’t Champion Free Speech
Where Did These Guys Come From?
Is Stalinism Back?
Insist that GOP Make Repeal of Government-Run Health Care a 2010 Issue
Engineers, Scientific and Social
IP: The Objectivists Strike Back! (that's IP: Intellectual Property . . .)
Central Problem: the Central Bank That's in Barron's--not at Antiwar.com.
Counties with worst joblessness get least from stimulus package -- This is no shock to those who expected Chicago-style corruption to explode in Washington with the current Administration. The fix is in.
Give Me Liberty or Give Me Social Justice -- "This week our government chose social justice over liberty. We will get neither."
On a hopeful note, a hint that the human urge for freedom will never be fully extinguished: In N. Korea, a strong movement recoils at Kim Jong Il's attempt to limit wealth
Oh, by the way--if you don't want to be called Stalinist, stop bloody acting like Stalinists. If it walks and quacks like a duck, etc., etc. If you voted for Obama or any Democrat in the last election, and haven't publicly recanted and apologized, I'm talking specifically to you. Yes, you. You my naive friend, voted for collectivism. Thanks. How are those jackboots fitting? Any blisters yet?

The flying Dutchman and other notes on the victory in Detroit
What to do with the 95 Yemenis at Gitmo now?

Storm petrels -- Richard Fernandez--"Wretchard"--always has thought-provoking articles. "The threat may indeed be very real. Sooner or later that harsh realization may come to those who thought the War on Terror was over."
Reality intrudes on plans to close Gitmo
Analysis: Detroit terror attack is a major intelligence and security failure -- why does it seem that the foreign press covers sensitive issues in the U.S. better than our domestic press does?

"Global warming" aka "Climate change" -- or should that be "Climate Reform?":
Nearly two thirds of the continental USA gets a white Christmas
S.D. digs out, back on the move -- yes, yes, "weather is not climate."
Digging out from under -- a longer Sioux Falls Argus Leader article--get it while it's hot.
877 new snowfall records set or tied in the USA in the last week -- but this is how ice ages start. It snows a lot, and it just keeps coming. You should be praying that it doesn't keep coming.
It's not global warming you have to worry about. It's an ice age. We're in an interglacial period, people. The ice will come again, and cold will kill you far, far quicker than warmth will. And literally billions of other people who don't die of hypothermia will starve to death when the ice sheet covers over much of Europe and North America. Suddenly, "global warming" doesn't sound so bad now, does it?

New Restrictions Quickly Added for Air Passengers -- oh, great. How about screening the passengers to weed out the wackos rather than imprisoning innocent travelers?
