Parsing A Joke One Laugh At A Time

Found this smart little laugh on the web somewhere, and while I'm not much of a purveyor of fine humor, I found this one hilarious enough of a "trifecta infectus" to pass along... ast Tuesday, as President Barack Obama disembarked the helicopter in front of the White House, he was carrying a baby piglet under each arm. The squared away Marine guard snaps to attention, salutes and says: "Nice pigs, sir." Without missing a beat, the President replies with a wry smile, "These are not pigs—these two are authentic Arkansas Razorback Hogs. I got one for Secretary of State Hillary...

Buying America Back To Prosperity

An excerpt from Patrick Buchanan's riveting piece about the "Buy American" movement, and the legislative push we need to pull this country back from the disaterous free trade deficits it has accumulated under the misguided tutelage of our last three presidents. We need this on so many levels. Let's just begin with financial solvency and homeland security. HE U.S. MAY BE AT A PEAK TURNING POINT in history.

China's verbal assault on the...


U.S. Presses China On Trade

UNITED STATES PRESSES China on Trade Issues—Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson, in Beijing, is said to have appealed for help in shoring up America's position on free trade. Of course, a top Chinese official stated that change was already on the way, while complaining that Americans fail to understand China. Fail to understand? Isn't that the same rhetorical device used by certain African-Americans to stonewall any accusations that perhaps much of that community's problems reside within its own ulture and attitudes? Recall the animosity Bill Cosby received on the heels of his straight talk on personal responsibility and hard work to...
