I've been lazy this week and haven't posted. But in the meantime here are three interesting links I couldn't pass up:
Chateau Heartiste put up a funny post about how Obamacare is being marketed, and goes from there to the larger issue of the kind of people who hold the reins of power in the country.
Jim Goad has written about the brouhaha over whether Santa is white or black. As entertaining as the article is, the comments that follow are even more so. Some are misguided, some are nasty, but almost all are clever. It's an enlightening firsthand look at the types the mainstream media love to revile.
Finally, Pat Buchanan published an article today about how neo-isolationism is soaring. He describes the hypocrisies of current US foreign policy. An example:
Now, President and Mrs. Obama and Vice President Biden have, on the high moral ground that Russia has outlawed LBGT propaganda, declared they will not attend the Sochi winter Olympics. Yet, are we not courting Iran? Did not Obama bow to the king of Saudi Arabia? When was the last time they had a gay pride parade in Riyadh, Tehran, Mecca or Qom?
All three articles are worth reading.
