Socialism Has Many Faces

Twenty-first-century socialism in Latin America actually consists of five socialisms, as many as the countries that constitute that caudillo-led, anti-republican, chaotic and authoritarian little world.

They unite in anti-Americanism, in the conviction that individuals must be at the service of the State, not the opposite, in their contempt for the market and in the superstition that the caudillo knows exactly what benefits or hurts all citizens, but they’re very different.

Ring Out the False; Ring In the True

By George Noga & Alfred Tennyson

As 2010 fades, let’s take a final waltz down memory lane with Obama, Bush, Gore and The New York Times.

Let’s ring out the false and ring in the true with stanzas from an 1850 Tennyson poem.

Ring out the old; ring in the new,
Ring happy bells across the snow;
The year is going, let him go;
Ring out the false; ring in the true.

FL Senate To Introduce Statutory Legislation Against Federal Healthcare Mandate

This announcement is a clear victory for the tea party movement in the state, which is now being recognized as one of the most active, well organized in the nation. It also indicates a strong show of respect toward the movement by state lawmakers.
