The Essayists: Round 3


The Belmont Club: "Design for Despots" "Like a curator in some infernal museum, the bureaucrats of politically correct society have become obsessed with keeping things the same and preventing disarrangement. Old buildings are preserved. New born babies are aborted. No mischief allowed."

baldilocks remains your go-to page for insight into the Obama game: "Along with holding the subconscious notion that Obama should abide by the rules of black solidarity, many black Americans seem to be desperately clinging to Obama as if he’s the last best hope for a black American to become POTUS for the next hundred years." -baldilocks: Taking "Dictation"

The Slavery of Deceit - The Doctor Is In "The tragedy in all of this is not the now-unfolding public humiliation of Jeremiah Wright and all he stands for; it is instead with those who, like Obama, have sat in his pews for years, absorbing this hateful perversion of Christianity as truth. If it is certain, as Jesus said, that “the truth shall set you free”, then the corollary is most certainly true as well: that falsehood will enslave you."

One Cosmos: Hail Mary, Full of Ideas! "Most of the things people call "thoughts" aren't actually proper thoughts at all. This may come as a shock to you, but most people have never had an original thought in their life, any more than they have made a witty comment. For example, Barack Obama and Bill Clinton are presumably smart guys, but I challenge anyone to identify an original thought in their vacuous books."

HERODOTUS AND ORACULAR OBSCURITY | More Intelligent Life "The Apollonian eye that stares out atop the pyramid from every dollar bill, whichsees what has been, what is, and what's to come, has a measured disinterest in our interest."

Christopher Taylor: "Twenty years of schooling and "you end up driving a truck or tending bar with your Bachelors of Business Management."

Sippican's looking for an economist who knows something: "Here's a hint: You will never find even one of them in Washington DC. Not one."

Ace finds that the media is "shocked, shocked!" "It came as a complete shock to one and all, and no one should hold it against Obama that he cultivated a mutually advantageous political partnership with a Nazi for 20 years."

Rachel Lucas boldly blathers what no blogger has blathered before: "I hate Neil Diamond music."

Stuff White People Like casts a cold eye on the revolting penchant for scarves. Especially, "The guy with the keffiyeh."

Meanwhile, neoneocon is have a strange and ongoing obsession with Jello molds. Yes, Jello molds. Many Jello molds.
