Sorry for the double ping if you are on both ping lists.


Nailed It!
Moral Clarity BUMP !

This ping list is not author-specific for articles I'd like to share. Some for the perfect moral clarity, some for provocative thoughts; or simply interesting articles I'd hate to miss myself. (I don't have to agree with the author all 100% to feel the need to share an article.) I will try not to abuse the ping list and not to annoy you too much, but on some days there is more of the good stuff that is worthy of attention. You can see the list of articles I pinged to lately  on  my page.
You are welcome in or out, just freepmail me (and note which PING list you are talking about). Besides this one, I keep 2 separate PING lists for my favorite authors Victor Davis Hanson and Orson Scott Card.

life in the contemporary West is so good, so free, so undemanding, that we will pay, say, and suffer almost anything to enjoy its uninterrupted continuance — and accordingly avoid almost any principled act that might endanger it.

In the meantime, the islamic wolves of terror circle and bite to weaken, waiting for the kill.

A fever dream for sure. When the fever breaks Nancy will be in Tehran, the Brit sailors will be on the cover of the Enquirer and Hillary and Obama will be calling for Bush’s impeachment.

Absolutely right. Such a west would be moral and standing up for its principles instead of the cowardly appeasement one sees today that is guaranteed to make my children’s lives one of continued bloodshed.

Thanks a lot for ruining our world liberals and leftists!

Agree. The principal standing would be the best deterrence, and safer, and cheaper. Just from pragmatic point of view and not going into the high policy matters, the Left’s mushy appeasement is counterproductive.

no more concessions to the pre-rational primeval mind

What a wonderful and accurate description.

I sent a copy to my congressman, the surrender monkey Tom Davis.

I reiterated that I was not supporting him anymore, and told him I hoped that it made the staff person who read it cry like I did.
