HOT5 Daily 8/5/2010

1. "If Pat Condell Posts It, I Link it" A good policy. Outstanding critique of much of the atheist left and its sniveling political correctness toward Islam, as opposed to Christianity.

Representative Sample: It's a video.

2. "I Suppose Now's Not a Good Time to Push for Gay Marriage " In Sudan. A useful reminder about just how good things are for gays here, comparatively speaking. And that goes for crossdressers too.

Representative Sample: The men were not represented in court and said nothing in their defence, some hid their faces from the hundreds of people who watched as they were lashed..

3. "Suddenly, Sensitivity Is Irrelevant" Being sensitive about other peoples feelings is only important if they hold politically-correct views.

Representative Sample: Agree or disagree with the idea of building a mosque at Ground Zero, you cannot deny that the issue controversial, and an emotional one. On those two things alone, Everyone on the left should be saying “do not build it,” if we went by past precedent.

4. "The rise and fall of community welfare" Interesting reading.

Representative Sample: The first thing that needs to be remembered is that the government did not invent the welfare system. In the early 20th century it is true that there was no government welfare system. But there was a large and growing community welfare system that was relatively effective and efficient, and offered health care, sickness and disability benefits, an aged pension, a widow’s pension, and other forms of help. The government didn’t invent welfare, they nationalised it.

5. "Updated. Must Watch: The Broken Window Fallacy" A useful reminder.

Representative Sample: The video titled “The Broken Window Fallacy” is a play on Frédéric Bastiat’s 1850 essay Ce qu’on voit et ce qu’on ne voit pas (That Which Is Seen and That Which Is Unseen) to illuminate the notion of hidden costs associated with destroying property of others.
