“The days of trying to move the Democratic Party to the right are over. We lost a very close election - a one-state difference - by running the #1 liberal in the Senate. Not bad. The country is shifting in our direction, not to the right.”

- Michael Moore on his website yesterday


“The United States is in danger of becoming a one-party nation. This may happen not by an old-fashioned coup d'etat in which the opposition party is purged, but by a suicidal Democratic leadership that has purged itself. Even after the disastrous Kerry presidential campaign, Democratic leaders still act as if September 11, 2001 and Nov. 2, 2004, are unrelated.”

- Columnist Arnold Beichman


“Billionaire Marc Rich has emerged as a central figure in the U.N. oil-for-food scandal and is under investigation for brokering deals in which scores of international politicians and businessmen cashed in on sweetheart oil deals with Saddam Hussein, The Post has learned. Rich, the fugitive Swiss-based commodities trader who received a controversial pardon from President Bill Clinton in January 2001, is a primary target of criminal probes under way in the U.S. attorney's office in New York and by Manhattan District Attorney Robert Morgenthau, sources said.”

“(W)e have never really tried to enforce the nation's existing immigration laws, only to create an illusion of trying to do so. Nearly half of the illegal aliens now in the United States did not run the border. They came in through ports of entry, such as airports, as did the 19 al Qaeda terrorists who attacked our country on September 11, 2001…

“The president and those who support his planned amnesty say amnesty will enable us to finally know who is in the United States. They say in fighting the war on terror, this would help make us more secure. Sad to say, that is not so. . . . If we ultimately enact the amnesty program, in my opinion, based on 30 years with the INS, criminals and terrorists will apply for amnesty under assumed identities and some will succeed. The identity documents they get will enable them to live and work ‘normally’ in the United States…

“The United States tried a similar amnesty program in 1986 under President Reagan. Some 3.5 million aliens were granted amnesty with the promise this was a ‘one shot’ program to at last bring millions of illegal aliens out of the shadows. Those aliens were indeed brought out of the shadows, only to be replaced by as many as 12 million illegal aliens who now live in the very same shadows. It has been said history repeats itself. I hope not this time.”

- Michael W. Cutler, retired INS veteran, Washington Times, 12/13/04


“Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton is staking out a position on illegal immigration that is more conservative than President Bush, a strategy that supporters and detractors alike see as a way for the New York Democrat to shake the ‘liberal’ label and appeal to traditionally Republican states. Mrs. Clinton - who is tagged as a liberal because of her plan for nationalized health care and various remarks during her husband's presidency - is taking an increasingly vocal and hard-line stance on an issue that ranks among the highest concerns for voters, particularly Republicans.”

- Washington Times, 12/13/04


“More than any other leader of either political party, U.S. Sen. Hillary Clinton has been focusing on immigration reform and border security - taking hard-line positions that appeal to frustrated Republicans in a move that could guarantee her enough support in red states to win the White House in 2008."

“Leonard Gamage is sore today, which is understandable since he spent more than 45 minutes fighting off an intruder late Friday. Gamage, 87, suffered some bumps and bruises in a pair of fights with the intruder, who is an unidentified 20-year man…

“Gamage said the ordeal started just after 9 p.m. He was watching television at his home when someone came to his front door. Gamage said he went to the back door since both doors face the patio. Gamage did not recognize the young man. When he went to open the door, he said the man grabbed the screen door and forced himself inside the house…

“Gamage said he remembered having a pair of rifles in a gun rack inside the house. As he started in that direction, he and the man began to fight again at the back door, in the kitchen/patio area. ‘I was finally able to get my hands on one of the guns and hit him in the back with the gun stock,’ Gamage said. . . . Gamage said he was thinking that he would hate to kill the young man, but would if he were left with no choice.

“Gamage then fired a pair of warning shots, one at each foot, but that did not deter the intruder, according to Gamage… ‘When he said he was still going to get me, I realized this was serious. I shot him in the left foot. It hit him in the arch and he screamed and started jumping around like a chicken with his head cut off.’

“...Ironically, Gamage lost the very rifle that may have saved his life. ‘I do not have a gun permit so (the sheriff) had to take my rifles,’ Gamage said. ‘The sheriff told me if I get my permit, he would see what he could do to help me get them back. I never use them, but they have been in the family a long time.’”

“The Parent's Television Council seems to be targeting South Park. How about a Parent's Responsibility Council? How about parents getting together to share ways that they can control television use in their own homes? Maybe one parent can share stories with another parent about how to use the built in controls most televisions have that won't permit the children to access certain channels! Who knows, maybe parents can even share stories about how they control the number of hours their children can use the ‘plug-in-drug’ every week. If these parents are really concerned maybe they need to remove televisions from every room in their home except the parent's bedroom. There's something to be said for getting the TV out of the parent's bedroom too.”

---where is this "Macomb"--to need a permit for rifles?

Macomb is in Illinois a state where it is apparently still a crime to protect one's self, one's family, or one's property, - where for some reason to even think of such protection requires a PERMIT but may not be a crime for a robber or murderer to perpetrate their crime on a person that doesn't have a permit or weapon for protection.

I am certainly glad that I don't live in ILLINOIS.
