Blog Ending

For the most part, posting at this blog has ceased. I may still do a review or two, but busy work and family life demand that I take something out of my life.
Blessings to those of you who have read my posts. Check back periodically to see if there is anything new.

Stop the Masochistic Insanity - The violent response to the report of "Quranic abuse" isn't about faith, it's about intolerance. By Christopher Hitche

Stop the Masochistic Insanity - The violent response to the report of "Quranic abuse" isn't about faith, it's about intolerance. By Christopher Hitchens: "Some of us can be offended at insults to our culture, and we, too, possess unalterable convictions and principles. Many people take the same view of the desecration of Old Glory. But we would never dream of venting ourselves in random assaults on mosques or Muslims, and if anyone on our soil did dare to commit such atrocities, I hope and believe that they would not receive moist and sympathetic treatment in the pages of the American press."

Victor Davis Hanson on Anti-Americanism on National Review Online

A very good article on the rise of anti-Americanism as evidenced by the description of America as the middle finger of the global hand.

National Review Online - VDH - On Being Disliked

Victor Davis Hansen on America being disliked and why we shouldn't worry about it:
National Review Online (http://www.nationalreview.com): "America should not gratuitously welcome such dislike; but we should not apologize for it either. Sometimes the caliber of a nation is found not in why it is liked, but rather in why it is not. By January 1, 1941, I suppose a majority on the planet — the Soviet Union, all of Eastern Europe, France, Italy, Spain, and even many elsewhere in occupied Europe, most of Latin America, Japan and its Asian empire, the entire Arab world, many in India — would have professed a marked preference for Hitler's Germany over Churchill's England.

Think about it. When Europe orders all American troops out; when Japan claims our textbooks whitewash the Japanese forced internment or Hiroshima; when China cites unfair trade with the United States; when South Korea says get the hell off our DMZ; when India complains that we are dumping outsourced jobs on them; when Egypt, Jordan, and the Palestinians refuse cash aid; when Canada complains that we are not carrying our weight in collective North American defense; when the United Nations moves to Damascus; when the Arab Street seethes that we are pushing theocrats and autocrats down its throat; when Mexico builds a fence to keep us out; when Latin America proclaims a boycott of the culturally imperialistic Major Leagues; and when the world ignores American books, films, and popular culture, then perhaps we should be worried. But something tells me none of that is going to happen in this lifetime."

Thou Shalt Not Be Negative - Christianity Today Magazine

I have not read the book Your Best Life Now, but Douglas LeBlanc has and he provides a pretty sharp critique (I am quite certain that he is right on target):
