KOFI KLUTZ

“(UN Secretary-General Kofi) Annan, in fact, was invented, and by the very Americans the apologists loathe, when the stink of the Boutrous-Boutrous Ghali administration finally became so overpowering that nearly everyone agreed that he had to go. His replacement had to satisfy the requirements of the Lilliputians of the Third World who are forever fantasizing about how to tie down Gulliver, and the Americans scrounged through what was available and came up with Mr. Annan, fresh from mismanaging the U.N. ‘peacekeeping’ operations in Rwanda and Bosnia. Wherever Mr. Annan went, massacres followed. But he apologized nicely and that was that. The man and the hour had met.”

- Wesley Pruden, “Pruden On Politics,” 12/10/04

GET THE U.S. OUT OF THE U.N.

“The United Nations does not serve the interests of the United States or the objectives of democracies. . . . What does the United States get for its money? We pay 22 percent of the U.N. budget, but get 100 percent of the grief from nations who hate us and what we stand for. . . . The world would be better off without this body and with an association of democracies in its place.”

- Columnist Cal Thomas

SEEDS OF FREEDOM MUST BE HOME-GROWN

“George Bush, clearly and much to the surprise of many people, is a visionary. And his vision is that of a world in which every nation is a democracy. Nice, but hardly practical. Therefore, while I hate to disagree with President Bush, (well, not really) the more I think about it the more I am convinced that the United States has not been ordained by God to spread freedom to the rest of the world. Neither do I find anywhere in the Constitution, or even in our history, any hint that that is supposed to be our mission…

“Ronald Reagan saw the United States as a beacon of freedom to the world and an inspiration to all those who yearn for it. He did not see it to be our duty to impose it on those nations and peoples who are not willing to fight for it. . . . Where a people seeks freedom George Bush can help, but he cannot bring freedom to those who are not willing to fight for it.”

- Lyn Nofziger’s “Musings,” 12/10/04

ANOTHER CAMEL’S NOSE UNDER FREEDOM’S TENT

“The (Intelligence) reform bill gets the federal government into the business of driver's licenses by requiring it to set standards for the states. You don't have to be a black-helicopter paranoid to see that this is the first concrete step to a national ID card and whatever that portends for our fast-diminishing privacy.”

- Columnist Dale McFeatters

UNDER-STATEMENT OF THE YEAR

“We had a message problem. We are too coastal, too urban, and most of all too dovish. . . . The public simply didn't trust us to keep them safe."

- Former Kerry campaign manager Jim Jordan

THREE CHEERS...HIP, HIP, HORRAY!

“The Democrat Party’s liberal wing will cheer lustily in the antiwar (Howard) Dean becomes the party’s new face, but Republicans will cheer even louder…”

- New York Post columnist Deborah Orrin

ALLEN SEEKS POLE POSITION

“In a sign that US Senator George Allen Jr. (R-VA) is planning a 2008 White House run, he just hired Dick Wadhams to be his new Chief of Staff. Wadhams, who ran the campaign that just ousted Senate Minority Leader Tom Daschle (D-SD), is viewed as one of today's hottest GOP political strategists.”

- Ron Gunzburger’s Politics1

YER GUMMINT SKOOLS INACTION

“We have long known teenagers in Japan scored much higher on international math tests than American teenagers. But did you know teenagers in Poland, the Slovak Republic, Iceland, Canada and Korea - among other places - also score higher than our teenagers? Out of 29 countries whose teenagers took a recent international math test, American teenagers ranked 24th.”

- Columnist Thomas Sowell

TALK ABOUT RHETORICAL OVERKILL

“The political and public campaign to change the current Postal Reform bills is already high and will get much louder and stronger throughout the winter and spring. They want your wages, retirement, and health benefits reduced through Congressional legislation and they want bigger postage discounts for presorting mail. They also want to have the ability to open mailbox delivery to anyone so that they can establish their own processing and delivery system to completely bypass the USPS.

“In your corner - fighting for you - is only one group, your Union. And the opposition is large, well financed, and politically connected. Despite all of this, your Union will be fighting the fight of our lives - of YOUR lives - to protect you. ...if you are not a member - join the group that is the ONLY group fighting for you. If our Union loses this fight - we all lose.”

- Kevin Gallagher of American Postal Workers Union

UPHILL CLIMB IN THE PR BATTLE

“It doesn't matter that paying taxes will be voluntary under the Fair Tax plan. It doesn't matter that nobody pays the retail sales tax on the basic necessities of life. It doesn't matter that lower income Americans will virtually get a free ride when their entire federal tax liability disappears, including Social Security and Medicare taxes. What does matter?

“Some people are afraid the evil, hated rich won't pay enough. How dare these people work hard, make good decisions, and save all that money? How dare they achieve that much more than I have? Make 'em pay! The Fair Tax can overcome a lot of things. I don't know how it can overcome the angry jealousy so many Americans feel toward those who achieved more than they?”

- Talk show host Neal Boortz

Re Gummit Skools -- Did you know that in the U.S. nearly ALL students' scores are included in the "average", including students who have learning disabilities, mild mental retardation, etc.? That's because in the US, "education" is considered a RIGHT, not a privilege. However, in the other nations that our students are constantly compared to, education is a privilege. This means that the teenagers who are allowed to be in school (instead of out working or perhaps training for a job in labor), and whose test scores are compared to the US, only include the highest performing students!! No mentally retarded or disabled students are included in their test scores. I challenge any nation on the face of the earth to compare the scores of their top 10% students with the scores of the top 10% students in the US!!! I have no doubt the US students would be ranked at the top!
