John Derbyshire is one of my favorite people who I haven’t met in person, though I sent him a package from Omaha Steaks when he became a U.S. Citizen.
One of his claims to fame is that he worked with Bruce Lee. You should check out his column over at National Review Online. It’s cool.
Here is a question for readers. Can you be a Christian and a liberal (progressive, if you are so inclined)? I mean sure people call themselves “Christians,” but is a liberal, with all that modern American liberalism really stands for, a true Christ follower?
Speaking of conspiracies, let’s call this Rule #187 on Power. “If you think the flouride in the water system is causing problems relating to government mind control, your power base is way the hell out of power.”
It use to be the John Birch crowd, and now it is the leftist environmentalist crowd.
I think this rule has merit.
I suppose I should keep up with them, but I really don’t. Sure, there are a few that I read. But most of them are leftist conspiracies with no merit.
They remind me of the right wing back in the 60’s. The right wing thought that organizations were interconnected like a spiderweb. The trilateralists and the CFR were in league with the Illuminati and mob, etc. All of them were conspiring in a great way to keep the conservatives down. Some right wingers still believe that and think that prominent conservative politicians are puppets of the CFR, etc.
Now, however, the table has turned and the left is at it. The Federalists, National Review, CATO, AEI, and Heritage are all in bed under the control of Phyllis Schlafly and Jerry Falwell, who in turn take their orders from Ariel Sharon. All of them have come together to kill off the last remaining rights in the Constitution.
It’s quite humorous, but it wastes my time to read the blogs that support this theory.
Rich Lowry’s book really is a great read. It is not too time consuming, it is very well documented, and it is not a partisan hack job. It’s honest. If you don’t buy it, a certain lady over at NRO might just get committed to an institution, or at least develop carpal tunnel syndrome.
I recommend it and hope you buy it.
