Garet Garrett; Blue Wound;

In August, I commented that I was beginning a discussion of Garet Garrett's "Blue Wound" at my other blog. I finished most of that discussion in September and completed my last post last week.

The discussion now includes everything from (1) how I found my copy of that rare book to (2) where it can be found online to (3) a chapter-by-chapter journey through the book's contents (without revealing plot spoilers) to (4) the strange predictions Garrett made in 1921 for the remainder of the 20th century (including which ones are only now coming true).

Quote of the day - Mark Steyn

If you're looking for someone to get tough with Elizabeth Edwards or RINO senators or White House travel-office flunkies, Hillary's your gal.

But tough on America's enemies? Thatcher-tough? Not a chance.

Quote of the day - Ann Coulter

Half the English language is becoming the "N-word" as far as liberals are concerned. Words are always bad for liberals. Words allow people to understand what liberals are saying.

Quote of the day - Mark Steyn

France has lurched from Second Empires to Fifth Republics struggling to devise a lasting constitutional settlement for the same smallish chunk of real estate, but the principles that united a baker's dozen of East Coast colonies were resilient enough to expand across a continent and halfway around the globe to Hawaii.
Americans should, as always, be thankful this Thanksgiving, but they should also understand just how rare in human history their blessings are.

Quote of the day - Cammile Paglia [Hillary's campaigns]

Hillary's stonewalling evasions and mercurial, soulless self-positionings have been going on since her first run for the U.S. Senate from New York, a state she had never lived in and knew virtually nothing about. The liberal Northeastern media were criminally complicit in enabling her queenlike, content-free "listening tour," where she took no hard questions and where her staff and security people (including her government-supplied Secret Service detail) staged events stocked with vetted sympathizers, and where they ensured that no protesters would ever come within camera range.

Quote of the day - Melanie Morgan

Not long ago it was fashionable to say that Ronald Reagan was nostalgic for a past that never was. Today it’s become apparent that American liberals are stuck in a pre-9/11 world that never really existed.

Election day 2007 - Pennsylvania Judicial Races

Today is election day in Pennsylvania and the biggest races are the statewide judicial races. The TV commercials do not identify the candidates by party.

The Republicans are as follows:

Maureen Lally-Green and Mike Krancer are running for Pennsylvania Supreme Court.

Cheryl Allen, Judge Bruce Bratton, and Jackie Shogan are running for Pennsylvania Superior Court.

Up for retention are Supreme Court Justice Thomas G. Saylor, Superior Court Judges Joan Orie-Melvin and Correale F. Stevens.

All of the above candidates are endorsed by the PA Pro-life Federation.

There are others running for retention or on the Democrat side, but the above candidates are the ones I endorse.

Quote of the day - Thomas Sowell

The unraveling Duke "rape" case should be a wake-up call, both for blacks and for liberals, on how easy it is for their emotions to be manipulated by even a third-rate demagogue with a flimsy fraud. The time is long overdue for some of those who consider themselves "thinking people" to start doing some thinking.

Quote of the day - Mark Steyn

A classical education considers society as a kind of iceberg, and teaches you the seven-eighths below the surface. Today, we live on the top eighth bobbing around in the flotsam and jetsam of the here and now. And, without the seven-eighths under the water, what’s left on the surface gets thinner and thinner.

Quote of the day - Ann Coulter

In the paramount threat of our time, the Democratic Party is AWOL. And those are the patriotic Democrats. The rest are actively aiding the enemy.
