You Gotta Serve Somebody

UR DULY ESTEEMED ESSAYIST Clarice Feldman writing a piece n today's cluster of new American Thinker articles, describes the Left as people delighted... "...in the absolute certainty of the righteousness and soundness of their views, and their right to have them automatically accepted as the approved model for all right thinking people." Progressives hold about a dozen core beliefs plus variations. Half of their beliefs contradict the other half. With a little study, skewering them can be reduced to just a few chess moves. The corrective screeching that results is music. We also welcome the contributions of American Thinker Robert...

Shards Of History Draw Blood (Shame, Redemption)

"...Centuries-long slavery obviously disrupted this classic pathway..." he what?? What pathway? The pathway that MOST Africans were and had long been on included selling each other into slavery, living in mud (and other soft) huts, cannibalism, no written language, no nuclear family[—in short, in NO way were blacks on any "glorious pathway" that approximated what they were introduced to THROUGH slavery.

Power of the People vs. Political Parties

....nothing new under sun. OR THE RECORD, I am not a member of any political party. I am, moreover, repelled by arguments that people should vote for a party’s candidate because . . . he is the party’s candidate. I have no interest serving any party simply for the sake of serving the party. I want best practices principles advanced, whoever, and from whatever party this person should come forth from the nation who supports those principles, but I also remain a pragmatist who considers each decision carefully. "I think George Washington was right when he said, in his 1796...
