Here is just a taste, but you’ll be well rewarding for clicking through and reading it all.

Pajamas Media » European Obamaphiles Trash the U.S.

I am sick and tired of Britons and Europeans pontificating about “American racism.” It defies belief that nations who plundered vast continents and colonialized the Hottentot are now telling Americans they should shed their shameful past. There is no denying the United States has a legacy of misfortune in the context of the era of slavery and that segregation was a blot on its history, but the impact of African-Americans on every aspect of American culture is something to be celebrated and that has no equal in Europe and Great Britain. Whether one supported Hillary Clinton or Mike Huckabee, or whether one will be voting for John McCain or Barack Obama, the United States has just shown the world it is capable of staging an energetic exercise in democracy that cannot be rivaled anywhere on the planet. Yes, there have been nasty moments aplenty but no blood has been shed.

UPDATE:  As others, notably Dennis Prager, have said, it is not “the world” that hates the USA, it’s the world’s LEFT that hates the USA.  And it is the world’s LEFT that loves Obama, and believes that in their preference for him, they are expressing their disdain for the USA as it has been.  If he’s elected, Obama will be farther Left than the presidents or prime ministers of England, France, Germany, Japan, Australia, Canada, etc., a fact you’re unlikely to learn from American major media.

Fascist USA?

Category: election 2008,freedomharmonicminer @ 12:25 pm

From a comment I left at

Assuming there is a considerable affinity between socialists of all stripes, nationalistic and internationally oriented, and assuming the line of relationships detailed in “Liberal Fascism” by Jonah Goldberg, what are the differences between baseline USA culture now and German or Italian culture in 1920s and 1930s?  I’m sure there are some, but one similarity is that both were in the throes of severe economic upheaval, and both were prey to charismatic leaders who promised to fix everything and make it better, with “a chicken in every pot” populism as the sales strategy, masking totalitarian intentions.

Obama’s Own Words: He plans to bankrupt the coal industry

Category: Uncategorizedharmonicminer @ 9:13 am

Obama’s statements about the coal industry, and the effect his planned CO2 emissions cap and trade policies will have:

So if somebody wants to build a coal-powered plant, they can; it’s just that it will bankrupt them because they’re going to be charged a huge sum for all that greenhouse gas that’s being emitted.

Here is change you can believe in.

Better start chopping up the furniture. It’s gonna be a COLD winter.

If McCain had discussed bankrupting a major industry, one producing a product everyone needs, whose loss would be a major burden to the poorest of us, you can be assured that the major media would have been out with the long knives.

On Redistribution

Category: economy,election 2008,Obamaharmonicminer @ 12:34 am

We can tolerate some redistribution.  Government always does some of it.  But it is toxic for economies, because it distorts markets, which means it distorts production that sells to those markets.  Nevertheless, some toxicity is tolerable (medicine is toxic, too, after all, in a good cause), and governments seem unable to resist the temptation to pick winners and losers.

But as with most toxic things (medicines as well as simple poisons), there are 4 dosage ranges.
