WHERE are the voices for freedom?

A battle for freedom is being fought half-way around the world in Iran, and on every communication medium in existence from cell phone videos on You Tube, to Twitter, to Facebook, and beyond. The rebellion for freedom and fair elections rages and blood flows in their streets. Highly visible personages risk their lives by openly opposing tyranny. The parallels to our own American Revolution are not lost … except here in America. Where are our voices in support of the fight for freedom, in Iran and elsewhere? Is it not ironic that the American Revolution was bred, fostered, fought and won by “radicals” — by people whose social and political agenda was not unlike liberals of recent years?  The liberal factions in the U.S. for decades have touted themselves as the real freedom-fighters.  I don’t agree that they’ve had any exclusive right to claim that badge, indeed they have not (witness our civil rights legislation passed by the conservative party), but the liberal faction has indeed claimed it. So where are “they” now? Where is our President’s voice? That of our usually-quite-vocal Secretary of State Clinton? Why do we (the corporate “we”) not learn the lessons of the past, the lesson that you can’t play footsie with regimes such as that in Iran and North Korea?

The Big Bill: Debt and Developed Countries

The current cover of The Economist is awfully on-point, with a giant ball and chain attached to a crawling baby. It is, of course, the debt bill faced by the developed world, which is the biggest in history. The entire associated article is empirical, direct, and highly worth reading. via The Big Bill: Debt and Developed Countries By Paul Kedrosky · Saturday, June 13, 2009 as quoting from The Economist print edition via Government debt: The big sweat | The Economist. The cover says it all And for those who like data, the chart is pretty graphic as well! Read the full article in The Economist and then call your Senators and Congressmen and implore them to find a way to put the brakes on with the spending spree. Like this:Like...

A really interesting photo

This is neat, sent to me by my friend Herb Lewis. Look at the camels in the photo and then scroll below the photo for more. This is a picture taken directly above these camels in the desert at sunset. It is considered one of the best pictures of the year. Look closely, the camels are the little white lines in the picture. The black you see are just the shadows!! Like this:Like...

CNSNews.com – Obama Taking U.S. in ‘Descent into Marxism,’ Soviet-Era Newspaper Commentary Says

(CNSNews.com) – A commentary published in the once-official newspaper of the Soviet Union heralded America’s “descent into Marxism” citing the United States’ takeover of General Motors, poor education standards, and the election of Barack Obama as president. via CNSNews.com – Obama Taking U.S. in ‘Descent into Marxism,’ Soviet-Era Newspaper Commentary Says. The lead sentences in the article explaining how the descent will be (has been?) accomplished: “First, the population was dumbed down through a politicized and substandard education system…. Secondly, “their faith in God was destroyed,…. “The final collapse,” said the Pravda article, “has come with the election of Barack Obama.  … spending and money printing …  If this keeps up … America at best will resemble the Wiemer Republican and at worst Zimbabwe.” And if anyone doubts that Marxism is to be avoided, take it from someone who should know: Russian “Prime Minister Putin, less than two months ago, warned Obama and UK’s Blair, not to follow the path to Marxism, it only leads to disaster,” the article said.
