Has anyone checked on Mark Steyn's health? I was afraid he might have laughed himself into a coma at the ridiculous "Ode to the NHS". Can't wait to read his take on the affair.
As they were recounting the myopic history of the empire, I kept waiting for them to get to the London riots. I think it was during that "David and Cindy say thanks to Tim", or whatever it was called.
My favorite part: Mr. Bean. It was the part that made the most sense.
Nice smile? Good hair? Uhhhhh..... no, don't help me, I'll get it. He's left standing?
Sorry, he's not my first choice. But I'll support him in the end.
I'm with you: I loved that part. It's so good that the other side is going to start saying that it's a racial code-word. Question is: When they do, will Mitt back off or keep it up?
Rick makes bold statements on important topics like "Freedom" and then doesn't run away from them. I like that in a man.
Claire, one other thing I'd like to ask you if I may - what are your views towards God? I know your father (whose intellect I greatly admire) is agnostic or atheist. I think one's view of God might influence one's views of the limits of mankind.
I am a Christian and believe that we are created with amazing potential, being made in the "likeness of God". That likeness I believe is manifested in creativity and the ability to communicate (and other attributes) which I believe could be developed way beyond what they have been. On the other hand, our fallen (sinful) nature alway hampers us and spoils much of what we do.
Claire, I must admit that I'd never thought that. I had always assumed that every problem has a solution - if not from human ingenuity, then ultimately God had a solution. To think otherwise depresses me and takes away any joy from the future. Do I sound naive?
What's the matter with all you gloom-and-doomers? Obama is the most land-slidable figure this country has seen since Jimma Cattah.
Buck-up, brothers! America is just itching to vote for anybody but Obama.
Right now Cain is my man for two reasons:
1) I've been reading Mark Steyn's "After America". It seems like Cain is the only man running who acts like America's future is uncertain enough to take bold steps to change our current tragectory toward the ash-heap of history.
2) The man who is going to get my vote is the one who uses the precious time of the primary season for attacking the true enemy of our future. Cain has been going after Obama hammer-and-tongs. (Of course, Romney gets a few good slugs in too).
Cain is the my leader on point 1 and in the top tier on point 2. Advantage: Cain. He inspires me to hope that America has a future. So, he's the only one I've sent a contribution so far.
I'm very happy and relieved to know that his 999 plan is just an intermediate step toward the fair tax - which I wholly support! The thought of opting out of taxation makes me drool with anticipation.
When I first heard of the consumption tax in place of the income tax (about 20 years ago), I was not convinced. But every year of experience behind me, convinces me more and more that it is the only way to save our country. Income tax is evil. Period. Exclamation.
I'll agree with "I'll love you forever". Not sure how it ended up in our house, but I hope it has found its way to a landfill by now. Has anybody ever interviewed the author to find out what he was thinking when he penned that piece of weirdness?
The Prince of Wales has lost his mind. For the sake of all freedom loving peoples, especially our English Cousins: Long Live the Queen!
I'm likin' the way you're thinkin!
I guess Obama's remarks really mean that:
1. Wounds come from those who disagree with him
2. Healing requires eliminating those who disagree with him
Train a child in the way he should go, and when he is old he will not turn from it. Proverbs 22:6
Ignore at your own (and your childrens') peril.
The real question is, will the lame-stream media ever report it or compare his ratings to W's now?
I had the same problem for a while after I (foolishly?) (upgraded?) to Internet Explorer 9. Everything started working again when I found the compatibility button at the top of the browser (the one that looks like a page torn in half).
Maybe that helps.
BTW - since moving to IE9 I can't stay logged in to Ricochet. I have to sign in everytime. Anybody else have advice on that one?
