HOT5 Daily 1/22/2010

1. "Obama Upset First Amendment Applies to Everyone" Democrats think it should only apply to organizations that support the Democratic party.

Representative Sample: how is allowing corporations the freedom to support or oppose candidates a bad thing? 

2. "A Fault Is Not a Sin" It's too bad Hitchens even needs to write an article about this. But he does.

Representative Sample: geological dislocations have no human-behavioral cause. The believers should relax; no educated person is going to ask their numerous gods "why" such disasters occur. A fault is not the same as a sin.

3. "The Distancing Game: How Republicans might be able to save the Obama presidency." I doubt this will happen, but you never know. 

Representative Sample:this presents the President with a unique opportunity. In order to save his administration he may want to turn to the ones who are starting to gain political capital with the American people, the Republicans. Of course, this is very dependent on what kind of solutions the party of the inept can offer

4. "The history of arms branches in Orient and Occident - redux"Along with a nice, concise historical recap, has an interesting call for a new version of light cavalry.

Representative Sample: there's more than just our present structure. Most importantly, we seem to neglect the light cavalry pattern today. The only modern equivalent are our weak and neglected armoured reconnaissance forces. The present small wars-driven interest in light infantry is unlikely to help us to regain the advantages that light cavalry has to offer.

5. "A History to Be Proud Of" It will be interesting to see if this series actually gains widespread use in schools.

Representative Sample: Bennett has produced a series of history books and online curricula for students in grades 8-12, which are being made available this month. Bennett’s books are being lauded across the political spectrum as balanced, informed, and honest.
