The Snarling Tiger in Chinese Stripes

It seems I don't often agree with Pat Buchanan these days, but his wide-eyed American protectionism has always been a favorite position of mine, and here Buchanan builds the argument that China is everything we thought it would grow to be—a snarling tiger. It is truly time for America to withdraw from this global dance, and concentrate on national defense and self-reliance once again. n my own art I have often pointed out that China is the new super power. Too many people just laugh, and talk about cheap imports. But let's examine a few glaring facts. Among its billions,...

The Soldier Beetle As Stink Bug

Got these bugs in your air space, and don't know how they got there. Unlike the experts in the article below, I don't really think this is such a great mystery.

US Presidency As Accumulative Error

David Swanson, author of Daybreak: Undoing the Imperial Presidency and Forming a More Perfect Union has written a chilling piece of commentary on the state of the American presidency. In many ways it is the story of the US Presidency as accumulative error. Below is an excerpt: ECOND, I LOOKED AT THE POWER OF WAR. Our Constitution wisely placed it in Congress. It is now in the White House and growing ever stronger. President Obama has demanded and received a larger military budget than Bush ever had, plus a larger war budget on top of that, not to mention the...
