Having a fairly busy weekend. So - after reading a basketful of good posts over at my friend Dan Blatt's blog, Gay Patriot, I'm going to let Dan do some of the heavy lifting!
Michael Steele for RNC chair. Yes! And for more than one or two reasons.
More than a few things in this life mystify me. One of them is why purported "liberals" seem to embrace regimes that would torture and/or murder gays and women in a heartbeat. Dan expounds.
Finally, government has but a few true responsibilities. Those responsibilities are not providing birth control to everyone, nor sex education in schools - they are not to send us money nor subsidize corn growers or TV stations. Yet one of those critical responsibilities is to defend our people. All the fabulous educational programs and health care and fine infrastructure and social programs are utterly meaningless if a huge chunk of us are dead. So - exactly why might the Obama administration want to slice 10% from our defense budget? Of course, whether Obama was straightforward in his campaigning is another matter. (If he was not, surely he would not be the first, either.)
Thanks, Dan! Enjoy.
