“… American exceptionalism the world could do without”

The World Turns

Tony Abbott will become Australia’s Prime Minister. I’d like to second John O’Sullivan’s wise words on Mr Abbott’s conservatism: we’re not talking about a Cameronesque trimmer and opportunist here.

When They Say “Comprehensive” Immigration Reform…

…They Mean Fuck You….

“It is difficult to understand how these companies can feel justified in demanding the importation of cheap labor with a straight face at a time when tens of millions of Americans are unemployed,” writes the Center for Immigration Studies, which strongly opposes the Senate Gang of Eight bill and similar measures. “The companies claim the bill is an ‘opportunity to level the playing field for U.S. employers’ but it is more of an effort to level the wages of American citizens.”

“Patriotic” Muslims March on Washington

Only 999,975 Muslims Short…

Park Police are keeping the group of protesters back. Several are displaying signs with messages such as “Muhammad is a liar” and were yelling to the Muslim attendees, reported News4′s Mark Segraves.

About 25 people — including activist Cornel West — were at the march as of 12:30 p.m., Segraves reported.

Organizers from the American Muslim Political Action Committee (AMPAC) say they are “patriotic Muslims” who are demanding new laws to protect their First Amendment rights.

I Was For it, before I Was Against it When I was For it…

For Kerry, the uncomfortable fact remains that he voted to authorize the use of force against Iraq, he believed the intelligence that Hussein had weapons of mass destruction and he said there was little choice but to launch an invasion to disarm him. Kerry may have been highly critical of Bush’s diplomatic efforts in advance of the invasion, but that is not the same thing as opposing the war when it started.

But the other Democrats knew Bush lied about WMD...
