Oklahoma

A rugged land, claimed by few, home of Red Man hopes, where possum grapes and berries grew upon her rolling slopes. In winter time, her mistletoe, was sought to bring romance. Its branches hung where lovers go, yet often seems by chance. Soft summer nights brought a parade of lights across her skies, as countless … Continue reading Oklahoma

No Time For Puppets And Optimism

Iraq is shaping up to be the crucial election issue, so when Iraqi Prime Minister Iyad Allawi came to Washington last week to thank America for liberating Iraq, the hardened liberal press corps reacted predictably. Their message to America: don’t let Bush’s puppet perk you up.

Gratitude? We don’t want America to hear too much of that.

Liberation? The very idea that this quagmire reflects a “liberation” sounds like a sick joke.

There is no light at the end of this tunnel, the media declareth.

Spiro Agnew’s old tag “nattering nabobs of negativism” defines this press corps with pinpoint precision.

King Lear

Day after day the media repeat the same two or three lame accusations, supported by the same two or three tired, old accusers. But voters only get one side of the story: the side the Kerry campaign wants you to hear.

What ever happened to balanced reporting? Exculpatory evidence?

There`s plenty. Let`s look at the accusations — and the evidence you haven`t seen:

Kerry Endorsed By Communist Party?

One of the consequences of the Electoral College system used by the United States in presidential elections is that no fringe party or independent candidate with limited appeal has a realistic chance of gaining the White House.

Because each state is allocated a number of electoral votes based on its population, and a successful candidate must win enough states to accumulate a majority of the electoral votes, a presidential aspirant cannot prevail simply by accumulating a large number of votes in one particular region of the country or by receiving a plurality of the popular vote in a crowded field.

An update from Genevieve Faith`s mother on her current condition: Throughout the night Genevieve began to get better. She is doing “amazingly well” this morning. That is what the nurse told me the doctor said about her this morning. She has come down on her oxygen requirements to 47% from 100%!!! This is huge. This … Continue reading Baby Genevieve
