From Michael Z. Williamson on FB:
You know what I'd like to see in the Democratic Party? Some liberals. That would be great.
And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war.
Designed by John Browning, the M1911 is the best-known of his designs to use the short recoil principle in its basic design. The pistol was widely copied, and this operating system rose to become the preeminent type of the 20th century and of nearly all modern centerfire pistols.
Because our great nation is constantly producing new crops of naive undergraduates, it occurs to me that it might be time to explicate what is painfully obvious to even the most casual observers outside the self-delusional circles of college bull sessions, academic Marxists and Occupy Wall Street. Namely:
- Communism does not work.
- Communism has never worked at any point in the past.
- Communism will never work at any point in the future as long as human beings are involved.
- Attempts to implement communism in the real world inevitably lead to failure, misery, and death. (Indeed, some 100 million deaths.)When capitalism falls short of the platonic libertarian ideal, the result is Switzerland.
When communism falls short of the wondrous utopia existing in true believers’ heads, the result is Pol Pot’s Cambodia.
These two failure modes are not identical.

It's tough to write the words "responsibility" and "Obama" in the same sentence. We have as President a man who never took to heart Mitt Romney's wise observation that "leadership is about taking responsibility, not making excuses."
Obama is a case study of what in Spanish is known as the "se me cayo" phenomenon. In Spanish, when you drop something, you didn't. It dropped itself from you. For Obama anything that turns out crooked, wrong, or manifestly stoooopid is somebody else's fault. He just read about it in the papers this morning, and, by golly, "there's nobody madder than me about it." We have seen this stunt over and over these past five-plus years.Hurm. Where were Jake and Elwood from, again? Ah, that's right. Chicago.
The tomb of Mongolian emperor Genghis Khan -- who created the world’s most powerful empire by raiding and invading across Eurasia -- is a lost treasure archaeologists have sought for years. And one man thinks he knows where it is.
“Ghengis Khan’s tomb is my obsession,” Nichols, a noted authority on the emperor, exclusively told FoxNews.com. “I couldn’t stop thinking about it. But I’m not happy just reading about it, or knowing about it. I need to have my feet on it.”
