BUT MOMMY, THERE’S MONSTERS IN THE CLOSET!

“The looming financial crunch in Social Security presents options that bring to mind prison cafeteria entrees: Some are inedible, and some are worse. The available ideas include such appetizing possibilities as raising taxes, reducing future benefits and increasing the retirement age. And the really bad news? Social Security is not the tough problem. It's the easy one. The tough one is Medicare.

“...Given the scale of the challenge, it might be understandable for our leaders to crawl under their desks and curl up in a fetal position, moaning and weeping and hoping the problem will go away. As it happens, that is about what they're doing.”

- Columnist Steve Chapman

ALWAYS RIGHT WITH CHARLIE JARVIS

There’s a new “Always Right” interview up on the Citizen Outreach website featuring Charlie Jarvis of USA Next...the conservative alternative to AARP. The topic? What else...Social Security. The ins, the outs, the ups, the downs...and everything in between. Charlie gives it to you straight and pulls no punches when talking about the liberal agenda of AARP. Listen to this extremely informative 46-minute interview by clicking on the “Always Right” link at www.citizenoutreach.com

BUSH WAS RIGHT?

“Germany loves to criticize George W. Bush's Middle East policies, just like Germany loved to criticize former President Ronald Reagan. But Reagan, when he demanded that Gorbachev remove the Berlin Wall, turned out to be right. Could history repeat itself?"

- Columnist Claus Christian Malzahn in the German magazine Der Spiegel

GO NAVY

“Last Thursday…(f)or the fifth time out of six attempts, Navy ships successfully tracked, intercepted and destroyed a ballistic missile in-flight, using their existing AEGIS fleet air defense systems and a new Standard Missile, dubbed the SM-3. . . . Missile defenses are required now more than ever. The time has come to assign the Navy the mission and the resources necessary to provide comprehensive defenses from the sea.”

- Frank Gaffney of the Center for Security Policy

INQUIRING MINDS WANNA KNOW

“Doesn’t anyone wonder why the NAACP does not have events celebrating the first black woman secretary of state? Why does an organization whose mission is to advance the lot of blacks not celebrate Clarence Thomas, our black Supreme Court justice?”

- Star Parker of the Coalition on Urban Renewal and Education

THE POPE’S BIG TENT

“I have finally figured out why the Pope continues to put up with pro-abortion Catholics such as Ted Kennedy, John Kerry and Mario Cuomo. He doesn’t want to go down in history as The Great Excommunicator.”

- Lyn Nofziger’s “Musings”

LIBERAL DEFENDS WAL-MART?

“Bowing to intense pressure from neighborhood and labor groups, a real estate developer has just given up plans to include a Wal-Mart store in a mall in Queens, thereby blocking Wal-Mart's plan to open its first store in New York City. . . .

“(I)t's not as if Wal-Mart's founder, Sam Walton, and his successors created the world's largest retailer by putting a gun to our heads and forcing us to shop there. Instead, Wal-Mart has lured customers with low prices. . . .

“To claim that people shouldn't have access to Wal-Mart or to cut-rate airfares or services from India or to Internet shopping, because these somehow reduce their quality of life, is paternalistic tripe. No one is a better judge of what people want than they themselves.”

- Former Clintonite and union shill Robert Reich

GOP’S TOP THREE

“A national poll might put (Rudy) Giuliani or (John) McCain at the top (of GOP presidential hopefuls), followed by (Senate Majority Leader Bill) Frist, with everyone else in single digits. But this is hardly a three-man race.

“While there is no question Giuliani was an amazingly effective surrogate for President Bush and GOP candidates in every corner of the country, it's pretty difficult to imagine that a pro-choice, pro-gun control, pro-gay rights candidate is going to win the Republican presidential nomination any time soon…

“And while there is no doubt McCain would be a huge force in the race, it is not yet clear whether he will run. McCain would be 72 years old at the time of the 2009 inauguration -- three years older than Ronald Reagan was when he was sworn in…

“Frist is one of the most pedantic speakers in national politics, and it's not uncommon to hear snoring in the room as he wraps up a speech"

- Political prognosticator Charlie Cook

MINIMUM WAGE, MAXIMUM SELL-OUT

“Sen. Rick Santorum said today he plans to introduce a bill next week to increase the minimum wage by $1.10 over the next two years.”

- Congressional Quarterly, 2/22/05

SANTORUM MARCHES LEFT

“President Bush's political savant Karl Rove was the cock-of-the-walk this month bragging that conservatism has become ‘the dominant political creed in America.’ Surely it must be one of those off-brands because what's been passing for conservatism these days is quite troubling. Let's start with Rick Santorum.

“Pennsylvania's junior U.S. senator this week is planning to introduce a bill that would raise the minimum wage. The economy is growing, the Republican notes; his ‘sense’ is that now ‘is probably a good time’ to raise the wage floor.

“Actually, there's never a good time to raise the government-mandated wage floor because the ‘good’ of minimum wages is a fallacy.”

- Colin McNickel of the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review, 2/27/05

ANOTHER POSTAL REFORM OPTION

“Another solution (in addition to reducing the current six-day mail delivery schedule) would be to initiate what the USPS calls ‘Neighborhood Box Units,’ or NBUs. These would be set up in various locations throughout neighborhoods, much like you would find in apartment complexes, which would keep the mail carrier from having to walk as much. Of course you'd lose your door-to-door service except for parcels and accountable mail (certified letters, express mail, insured or registered mail, etc.), but a carrier could deliver two or three times as much mail on a daily basis, and the USPS could drastically reduce its carrier force.”

- Anonymous USPS letter carrier and News & Views reader
