1. "Why do They Hate Us, Indeed?" Excellent points.
Representative Sample: Whatever we do--or don't do--is reason for some to hate us--or at least suspect us of evil intent. There's really nothing we can do about it. So stop trying to adjust our behavior to reduce the reasons our enemies and detractors use to justify hating us and killing us
2. "The Dragon Enables Again" China and North Korea.
Representative Sample: Peking has deliberately and unabashedly thwarted each and every opportunity to contain North Korea. The Chinese refused outright to live by UNSC Resolutions 1718 and 1874. China continues her arms sales to Pyongyang, and her large economic (read: financial) aid to Kim’s government.
3. "Inglorious Results of an Overspent Youth" A grass-roots movement to seriously cut government spending?
Representative Sample: something is happening that has never happened before in Western civ. For the very first time, a populist, small-c conservative uprising is focused not on taxes (that's fairly common), but rather on the deeper and more profound cause of socialist woe, government spending itself
4. "BUSH & OBAMA BY THE NUMBERS" Some cherry-picked but still amusing comparisons.
Representative Sample: BUSH PICKED UP SEATS IN CONGRESS IN HIS FIRST MID-TERM; OBAMA MAY VERY WELL LOSE A HUGE AMOUNT AND MAJORITIES IN BOTH BODIES.
Representative Sample: While at a barbeque for wounded veterans, Vice President Joe Biden said something…unfortunate
