Re: Santorum, Romney, Paul

If it were only the primaries... Take the Electoral College, that nonsensical anachronistic piece of political engineering. Or take the abomination that is the US Senate, which puts California on a...

Re: Means and Ends (Joshua Cohen & Glenn Loury)

Federal control of education? Which country are you talking about?



No, you don't mean that. You mean she doesn't have a right to a certain work environment that's not detrimental to her as a...

Re: Means and Ends (Joshua Cohen & Glenn Loury)

Some worry that an independent run by RP (RP because when you go by your initials it means you've arrived) would undercut Obama. True or not, it's not trivially untrue. And that's the scariest...

Re: Means and Ends (Joshua Cohen & Glenn Loury)

The intro ran the whole gamut from the terrifying to the god-awful... Wish I knew the magic words. So sorry for your pain, guys. Healing thoughts to both.

Re: Kudos to Bob for setting the record straight on his hero, Ron Paul

I am not saying that people should vote for Paul, since I won't do it myself. I am saying they should listen to him attentively when he speaks about FP. Does that still make me responsible for his...

Re: Kudos to Bob for setting the record straight on his hero, Ron Paul

I'm afraid you have it backwards. A president can order troops home. Might piss off a few congressmen and lobbyists but that's his call. For the White House to close half of our 1,000 bases around...

Re: Kudos to Bob for setting the record straight on his hero, Ron Paul

Are you sure he's clearly a racist? And here's why being sure matters. There's a red line beyond which no support, tacit or overt, is legit. David Duke is a nonstarter -- whether he agrees with me...

Re: Kudos to Bob for setting the record straight on his hero, Ron Paul

Sorry for flogging a dead horse, wonderment, but giving a pass to Obama is precisely what YOU are doing by pledging to vote (even campaign) for him NO MATTER WHAT FOREIGN POLICY HE PURSUES.

It's been the triumph of regressive taxation: Warren buffett is taxed at 17% and his office secretary at 30%. Which is why whether your name is Obama or Romney makes no difference: the right has...

Re: Be Seeing You (Robert Wright & Mickey Kaus)

The brilliant statesman Dwight Eisenhower thought nothing wrong of a 90% tax rate on the rich, which saw the economy expand. Today's top rate is 35% or even 15% if you're not one of those losers who...

Re: How to Murder blacks and get away with it - advice from Ron Paul

Did you watch the video you posted? To the question "Are you saying society should let him die?" Ron Paul answers "No."

But it's OK. I like oxymorons and this one is not too shabby: "A healthy...

Re: Science Saturday: Celestial Couch Potatoes (John Horgan & George Johnson)

Kudos to Wright. I often disagree with him -- eg, evo psych is crap on stilts -- but I like listening to him, and I am in awe of what he's created here.

Why can't he relocate bhtv to the...

Re: Science Saturday: Celestial Couch Potatoes (John Horgan & George Johnson)

These guys have my vote. Horgan and Johnson are a good model of what works in the bhtv format. Same with Loury and McWhorter. Not so much with McArdle, Althouse, Lake, etc.

The adversarial...

Re: The Week in Blog: Lightning Is Delicious (Bill Scher & Kristen Soltis)

I have not the slightest issue with someone saying, "I don't believe in God, Christian or otherwise." End of statement. But when the likes of Dawkins, Hitchens, Harris want to demonstrate the...

It's too easy to mock Hitchens for his pathological Islamophobia. But take his other passion besides Black Label: atheism. His attack on religion was not just ignorant,...

Not so sure. Hitchens died, but so did Kim Jong Il. Hitch and the Dear Leader can finally get to know each other.

Re: The Week in Blog: Lightning Is Delicious (Bill Scher & Kristen Soltis)

American journos, who by and large can't write their way out of a paper bag, were deadly envious of Hitch's nonnegligible literary skills. That said, Hitchens lived in a world of words, not a world...

In fact, no. There's is zero evidence that African-American infant deaths have a genetic factor that's more than noise. If you count only white America, the rate is 5.6, which puts the US in...
