- Never Mind: Never mind the fact that Israel lays claim to a tiny patch of land in the midst of vast hostile Muslim territories; never mind that the historical record establishes that Israel has ties to that land going back 3,000 years; never mind that Israel fights to minimize her enemy’s deaths and injuries, while the enemy fights to maximize Israel’s; never mind that Israel’s acts are in accordance with international law; never mind any other items in the laundry list all of you can create justifying Israel’s right to exist and the righteousness of her actions (never mind that Israel, too, like any nation comprised of living, breathing human beings, sometimes errs). These facts are irrelevant to the animus the Left feels towards Israel, and so many American Jews are Leftists first, and Jews second.

Re: David Warren's piece which suggests that we're beyond being able to downsize big-government at the ballot box, have you been aware of the Inalienable Human Rights Initiative in California?
This petition is currently circulating for signatures to qualify for a future ballot. It basically expands the Unalienable Rights of the U.S. constitution to the people of Ca. saying in effect that the State of Ca. would have no right to tax the use and consumption of air, C02, water, habitat for humanity, and other energy producing natural resources. It also gives he People of Ca. the Unalienable Right to nullify all Federal powers not delegated to the U.S. by the Constitution.
It would effectively repeal the Ca. endangered species act, the Ca. Coastal Act, the Ca. Global Warming Act, the Ca. Environmental Quality Act, and even Obama's Healthcare debacle.
