In his press conference today, President Obama “Suggested” that Cuba release it’s political prisoners.
“You know, if it’s not too much trouble — could you possibly consider maybe releasing your political prisoners? Perhaps? Please? But it’s just a suggestion.”
What a far cry from “Mr Gorbachev, tear down this wall!”
David Shuster and Anderson Cooper… or… Mark Elrod and Keith Olberman?
We report, You decide.
Kudos to the US Navy and the Navy Seals for their daring rescue of Captain Richard Phillips today. 3 of the pirates were killed and one was captured.
In the midst of this great news, I saw something that I found troubling. One pundit said the captured pirate might be tried as a criminal in New York Federal Court. Let’s hope that does not happen.
This pirate is NOT a criminal. He is a TERRORIST! He does not have the rights of a U.S. citizen and must not be given those rights. If he is guilty, he must be executed.
This is from liberal columnist Camille Paglia:
“Yes, something very ugly has surfaced in contemporary American liberalism, as evidenced by the irrational and sometimes infantile abuse directed toward anyone who strays from a strict party line. Liberalism, like second-wave feminism, seems to have become a new religion for those who profess contempt for religion. It has been reduced to an elitist set of rhetorical formulas, which posit the working class as passive, mindless victims in desperate need of salvation by the state. Individual rights and free expression, which used to be liberal values, are being gradually subsumed to worship of government power.”
