Scalia, China And The Democrats

Sounds like a nice warm up to a Stephen King novel, huh? Instead it's just another day with the powers that be.

Scalia Shows A Libertarian Streak
Not that I believe for a minute that Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia is even remotely Libertarian he took words that many Libertarians have spoken and said them in front of a crowd in Puerto Rico.
"But you would have to be an idiot to believe that," Scalia said. "The Constitution is not a living organism, it is a legal document. It says something and doesn't say other things."

Now, if the other Nazgul on the bench would just learn this and act as if it where the truth we might be getting somewhere. Ah, well, we all gotta dream!

China Isn't Communist? You Sure Could Have Fooled Me And 115,000 Others
Showing that the Chinese Communist Party is alive and kicking and still running things in Capitalistic China, the Party of Mao seems to be dealing with a corruption scandal. Then again, it is just as likely that many of these corrupt individuals were embracing capitalism and the ever present Chinese counter economy. Freedom's on the march, Jintao! Another Long March....

Lesson 13: Another Reason Democrats Can't Get Elected
They eat their young. They lie. And they have no concept of loyalty. Look at the case of Paul Hackett of Ohio, (it embodies all three), an anti-War Democrat promised support from his party and their Senate leadership. He turns his back and....*snick*, slash....right in the back goes the dagger. Considering the importance of Ohio in national elections it would make sense to run someone like Hackett. He's young, charismatic, a veteran and an opponent of the Bush administration. Maybe the Democrats want to run a tired, old, criminal with Union credentials who is up to his ass in graft and corruption, instead? They shouldn't be hard to find in Ohio.

Liberty Evangelism Opportunities
It looks as if Mongolia is courting foreign patronage to offset Soviet...errr...Russian and Chinese influence in their country. I have a suggestion for our Mongolian brethren. Read "On The Steppes Of Central Asia", print it and distribute it to everyone in your country and then live the dream of true freedom.
