Dear Palestinians: You Are Our Enemy

How many Palestinians polled give "Support to Al-Qaeda's actions like bombings in USA and Europe"? Interestingly enough for a place that receives hundreds of millions of dollars from us, 38% strongly support, and 27% support, Al-Qaeda actions like bombings in USA ans Europe.

That's 65% of the polled population. That is an enemy, not just the government, the entire country. A country that wouldn't exist if it weren't for us and Israel. Jordan certainly wasn't ever going to give them their homeland. The only place they ever had any rights to speak of was in Israel.

This is exactly the response to expect from 20+ years of negotiating with terrorists.

The poll results can be seen here.

Why I Love Public Transportation

It's the same reason I love gun control. Reliance on police takes away your ability to protect yourself. Reliance on public transportation takes away your ability to transport yourself. So now these folks are your only way to get to work. Merry Christmas.

So New Yorkers, you better give those transit workers the the respect they demand and deserve (and $50K a year), because you've already given them a government-sanctioned monopoly, and you'll never get your transport independence back.

Jimmy Breslin, Profiles in Moronacy

I don't care for Hillary Clinton, but Jimmy Breslin uses one of the lamest, most shopworn, tired, and stale statements ever constructed to criticize her politics:
If Hillary Clinton wants this war to go on, then she should send her daughter to fight in Iraq.

Oh, very clever, and fresh too!

Our fighting men and women continue to be 100% adult, 100% volunteer, whatever the Sheehans, Moores, and Breslins of the world pretend to believe. But "she should persuade her daughter to volunteer to fight in Iraq" doesn't have the same punch.

Fortunately for everyone, they are fantastic, brave, adult volunteers, and history will erase the nonsense of the naysayers and doom-and-gloomers.
