Some Dennis Miller on Bill O’ Reilly posts – some are a little dated, but good nonetheless.

Yet another reason to love Giuliani

Great story on Yahoo News about Giuliani’s early days as a true crime fighter.

Ghetto Nation -It’s real

Cora Daniels has written a fascinating book on something that many of us have felt at the corners of our consciousness or discussed among friends but have not labeled so succinctly – the ‘Gehetto-ization’ of our society and it’s negative impact on our culture.

From the Barbie Bandits to the pot smoking toddlers or even worse the violent murders plagueing our cities, you see the embracing of the Ghetto mindset across racial and class lines.

Finding it’s way into our culture through the mass media and spear-headed by Gansta rap, it has propelled people to mass fame and fortune, payed for old rich white guy’s mansions in Malibu, and corroded the moral compass of a generation.

To quote her website, “These days, ghetto no longer refers to where you live, but to how you live. It is a mindset. And a mindset is not limited to a class or a race.”

Finding a way to reverse this trend is one of the great moral imperatives of our time and I hope more people open their eyes to what is happening.

I hope Oprah picks up on this book, it is that poignant.

An interesting thought…?

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s stint as unofficial envoy to Syria poses an interesting thought – does this set the precedent to undermine executive power in affairs of Foreign Policy? Or has there ever been a similar situation in which members of an alternate party undercut Presidential authority by means of Congressional delegation?

I can imagine a scenario where a lame duck President whose Foreign Policies have been utterly useless is rendered completely irrelevant by the brokering of some deal or diplomatic coup d’etat by members of Congress acting on their own whim and accord.

Another reason to not just blindly tow the line and support the leader’s of your preferred Party – Bush has done more to damage the Republican Party than any Liberal could have achieved, and more reason to support moderate, reasonable Conservatives (more on this in another post to come…)
