  • Goodbye ISIS, Hello Losers

    May 24, 2017 @ 1:04 pm - Vintageport

    H/T to TAM PaigeMJ for Tweeting this article to me. Dilbert cartoonist, Scott Adams, gives his take on President Trump's strategy of relabeling terrorists as Losers or Evil Losers. We enjoyed Adams' opinion pieces leading up to the election in November. This one is especially good. Thanks Paige!

  • President Reagan's Remarks Before the Assembly of the Republic of Portugal in Lisbon on May 9, 1985

    May 22, 2017 @ 11:45 pm - benhumm

    Reagan encouraging the Portuguese government in their recent move away from socialism. He outlines the keys to true and successful democracy.

    Background from Wikipedia Portugal article: “Portugal bounced between socialism and adherence to the neoliberal model. Land reform and nationalizations were enforced; the Portuguese Constitution (approved in 1976) was rewritten in order to accommodate socialist and communist principles. Until the constitutional revisions of 1982 and 1989, the constitution was a highly charged ideological document with numerous references to socialism, the rights of workers, and the desirability of a socialist economy. Portugal's economic situation after its transition to democracy, obliged the government to pursue International Monetary Fund (IMF)-monitored stabilization programs in 1977–78 and 1983–85.”

  • The Sabotaging of the President

    Read this last night. Really good piece. Personal opinion, I think “Rinse and repeat” is the leaker.

  • In England, a vision-impaired surgeon removes woman's ovary instead of appendix

    What's worse than the endless waiting lists of socialized medicine? Getting a blind-as-a-bat surgeon who removes your ovary instead of your appendix. Seems to be a real story here, and not The Onion.

  • National Review chuckles over the emergence of Chelsea Cllinton as a political force

    May 9, 2017 @ 1:27 am - Maynard

    This is a one-sided hit piece, but it captures the essence of the situation. Chelsea is being floated as a future candidate or leader or something, and her emergence is becoming a joke.

    (Seriously, I do have a bit of sympathy for someone in Chelsea's position, because what choice does she have? She was born into a situation that precludes an anonymous life and a quiet seeking of her own level. Wherever she goes and whatever she does, people are going to love or hate her, buy or sell her. So there's no escape.)

  • Obama's Clemency Released Terrorist to be Honored

    May 8, 2017 @ 1:50 pm - Alain

    On his way out, Obama granted clemency to FALN terrorist Oscar Lopez Rivera. Mr. Rivera is to be released from prison this month and will be honored as a Freedom Hero in this June's Puerto Rican Day parade. Link is to a NYP op-ed by a son of a man killed by FALN in 1975. Very good op-ed.
