Eliminating terrorists when there are no other options, is not.
Ah, yes. I can see how information will be gathered....

Investigator: "Do you like your tea? Are you comfortable?"
Terrorist: "Yes. The tea is quite fine. I am a big fan of yerba matte. And, this leather chair is exquisite. It seems to cradle me with care."
Investigator: "Well, I guess we can begin our discussion about who is a terrorist and where they are."
Terrorist: "I'm glad you asked. I'll tell you everything I know."

You are such an idiot.

Tea Party 2.0: Focus On The Four R’s & Fight Back
Rebrand the Tea Party: Keep the mission, dump the name.
The Tea Party brand has been effectively destroyed. After three years of demonizing the Tea Party as ‘racist,’‘extremist,’ and ‘radical,’ the brand has become a cancer.
It is now a drag on the candidates it supports, with the Left (and GOP establishment types like Karl Rove) gleefully labeling conservative candidates as “outside the mainstream.”
In the meantime, while the Tea Party had once enjoyed 24% popularity, according to a recent Rasmussen poll, only 8% of Americans now identify themselves as members of the Tea Party.
While that is the lowest it has been in the three years, there is some positive news in that poll: Thirty percent of the poll’s participants do hold favorable views of the Tea Party. That is something to build on.
However, insofar as it has been branded and is now associated with negativism, the brand itself must change in order to build and grow again.

An oil rich country for Halliburton.
As it was, it propped up the price of oil making oil companies prosper. That Iraq war probably jacked up the price of oil by $30/ bbl.
Perhaps you were in a coma when Obama declared himself and all of his subjects to be the subjects of the King of Saudi Arabia.

Do you ever listen to what comes out of your ignorant mouth?

Lily also thinks Manhattan is spelled Manhatten. this is probably due to never leaving her Florida gated pen. which is just as well, since the last time she was here in the city, she wore yellow shorts with disastrous consequences when tourists started jumping on her, thinking she was a yellow cab.

Counterculture Conservatism

The right needs less Ayn Rand, more Flannery O’Connor

How to revive the flagging fortunes of the Republican Party might matter to some people, but it’s not a question that should concern principled conservatives. Crypto-conservatives aplenty stand ready to shoulder that demeaning task. Tune in Fox News or pick up the latest issue of National Review or the Weekly Standard and you’ll find them, yelping, whining, and fingering our recently reelected president as the Antichrist.

Conservatives who prefer thinking to venting—those confident that a republic able to survive eight years of George W. Bush can probably survive eight years of Barack Obama—confront a question of a different order. To wit: does authentic American conservatism retain any political viability in this country in the present age? That is, does homegrown conservatism have any lingering potential for gaining and exercising power at the local, state, or national levels? Or has history consigned the conservative tradition—as it has Marxism—to a status where even if holding some residual utility as an analytical tool, it no longer possesses value as a basis for practical action?

To which a properly skeptical reader may respond, perhaps reaching for a sidearm: exactly whose conservative tradition are you referring to, bucko?

Well, I’ll admit to prejudices, so let me lay them out.

(Fans of Ayn Rand or Milton Friedman will want to stop reading here and flip to the next article. If Ronald Reagan’s your hero, sorry—you won’t like what’s coming. Ditto regarding Ron Paul. And if in search of wisdom you rely on anyone whose byline appears regularly in any publication owned by Rupert Murdoch, well, you’ve picked up the wrong magazine.)
