News & Views, 9/13/04


UM, YES, HE DOES

“The common man doesn't look at me as some rich witch.”

- TerAYza Heinz Kerry, 9/9/04

BIG TALK FROM MASKED MURDERER

“The defeat of America in Iraq and Afghanistan has become a matter of time, with God’s help. The Americans in both countries are between two fires, if they continue they bleed to death and if they withdraw they lose everything.”

- Al Qaeda butcher Ayman al-Zawahri

SOME MUSLIMS HAVE FINALLY HAD ENOUGH

"Obviously not all Muslims are terrorists but, regrettably, the majority of the terrorists in the world are Muslims. The kidnappers of the students in Ossetia are Muslims. The kidnappers and killers of the Nepalese workers and cooks are also Muslims. Those who rape and murder in Darfour are Muslims, and their victims are Muslims as well. Those who blew up the residential complexes in Riyadh and Al-Khobar are Muslims. Those who kidnapped the two French journalists are Muslims. The two [women] who blew up the two planes [over Russia] a week ago are Muslims. Bin Laden is a Muslim and Al-Houthi [the head of a terrorist group in Yemen] is a Muslim. The majority of those who carried out suicide operations against buses, schools, houses, and buildings around the world in the last ten years are also Muslims.

“...Islam has suffered an injustice at the hands of the new Muslims... We will only be able to clear our reputation once we have admitted the clear and shameful fact that most of the terrorist acts in the world today are carried out by Muslims.”

- Abdel Rahman Al-Rashed, former editor of the London daily Al-Sharq Al-Awsat, reprinted in Andrew Sullivan’s “Weekly Dish” column

THE TWO FACES OF JOHN KERRY

“John Kerry could well be our next President, which is why we keep looking for signs that he'd be a good one, especially on national defense. Even a hint of Harry Truman would make us sleep better. But the more he talks about Iraq, the more the Senator seems bent on proving that his critics are right: He really is in a Presidential debate with himself.”

- Review & Outlook, Wall Street Journal, 9/10/04

SGT. PEPPER, REPORTING FOR DUTY...SIR!

“The story of George W. Bush's ‘scandalous’ service in the Texas Air National Guard arrived on little legs months ago. Baby Boomer correspondents and pundits, who missed the war and imagine the authentic heroes of Vietnam were Sgt. Pepper and the Lonely Hearts Club Band, were shocked — shocked! — that George W. missed not only the Vietnam War, but had never shot down a single MiG over Corpus Christi.

“...Monsieur Kerry and his friends just can't leave the Vietnam War alone. If Monsieur Kerry, who opened this can of demons and worms, will ever agree to releasing his complete military records, this could all get verrrry interesting.”

- Wesley Pruden, Pruden On Politics, 9/10/04

THEN...AND NOW

“Which is more important; (a) whether or not President Bush showed up for National Guard duty 35 years ago, or (b) whether he showed up for duty as Commander in Chief for the past four years. If Bush were basing his entire set of presidential qualifications on his National Guard duty, then we might have a problem.”

- Talk show host Neal Boortz

LETHAL COMBINATION

“There are two things that are now almost certainly true about the presidential race: (1) George W. Bush is winning for the first time all year. (2) John F. Kerry's campaign is, internally, in disarray. Combined, the two points mix like nitroglycerine in a blender.”

- UPI’s Peter Roff, 9/10/04

THE FAT LADY IS CLEARING HER THROAT

“Things have been going wrong for Kerry ever since he reported for duty at the Democratic National Convention. He still has eight weeks to turn things around. But off of his record to date it’s beginning to look like he won’t make it.”

- Lyn Nofziger, “Musings,” 9/10/04

GOV’T & DISASTERS: TWO PEAS IN A POD

“Hurricanes come through Florida every year about this time. And, every year, politicians get to parade their compassion by showering the taxpayers' money on the places that have been struck. What would happen if they didn't?

“First, not as many people would build homes in the path of a well-known disaster that comes around like clockwork virtually every year. Those who did would buy insurance to covers the risks they choose to take. That insurance would not be cheap — which would provide yet another reason for people to locate out of harm's way. The net result would be fewer lives lost and less property damage. Is it not more compassionate to seek this result, even if it would deprive politicians of television time?”

- Columnist Thomas Sowell

MAJOR DISCONNECT

“Most Americans adamantly oppose increasing the amount of legal immigration to the United States and legalizing those immigrants here illegally. On no other foreign-policy issue do average Americans disagree more with government and business leaders and other ‘elites’ than on immigration.”

- Washington Times, 9/10/04

THANKS, UNIONS

“US Airways Group filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy-court protection after talks with its labor unions to cut costs fell through.”

- Wall Street Journal, 9/12/04

IT’S THE UNIONS, STUPID

“The problem with the USPS (post office) is the unions. Matter of fact, unionism is the root of the problems with most of our government. The worst President the United States ever had was John F. Kennedy...because in March of 1963 he signed Executive Order 10988 which authorized and encouraged the formation of government employee unions.”

- News & Views reader “Bob in Amarillo”

CLOCK RUNNING OUT

“Congress (has) little time to pass postal reform or other (Direct Mail)-related legislation before the targeted adjournment date of Oct. 1. . . . Though reform gained momentum earlier this year, most industry insiders say there is little time to pass either bill, especially as neither has been scheduled for debate on the House or Senate floors.”

- DM News, 9/7/04

STATISTICS, PLEASE

Rep. Tom Osborne, Oklahoma Republican, is trying to ban beer commercials from all televised college sports events. "Alcohol abuse is the leading cause of death on college campuses," he tells CNN/Money.

Really? How many alcohol abuse deaths occurred on college campuses last year? Out of how many college students? Now, what’s the percentage of college students who died of alcohol abuse on college campuses last year? Then tell me how that figure justifies congressional action to ban free speech?

I think I’ll go pop a cold Coors while I’m waiting for the answers. On second thought, make it two Coors. No, make it two Samuel Adams! In a frosted mug, please.

NEW MUTH’S TRUTHS COLUMN

Republicans in the Nevada state Assembly released their version of the Contract With America last week. But in a new Muth’s Truth column, “GOP Contract Doesn’t Cut the Mustard,” I rip it apart for failing to boldly go where no Nevada Republicans have gone before.

Chuck:

I'm sure I must be the 1,000th person to point out that Tom Osborne is not an Oklahoma Republican, he's a Nebraska Republican. Of course, if we could trade the liberal Democrat we're about to get in the Oklahoma 2nd District (Dan Boren) for Osborne, we'd happily do so.
