Posted by  ▪  January 9, 2013
Later this month, Bibi Netanyahu will likely be reelected Israel’s prime minister.  Covering his campaign, Reuters noted yesterday that Netanyahu’s theme is essentially “The whole world is against us”—which the news agency at once implicitly ridicules and confirms. “The great danger to the world is not from Jews building in our ancestral capital…

I’m not going to be ignored, Gannett

Posted by  ▪  January 8, 2013
I have sent the following email twice to the media contact person at Gannett corporate, first two days ago and again yesterday.  I also left a voice message requesting a response.

Breaking — I agree with RI Gov. Linc Chafee

Posted by  ▪  January 8, 2013
BREAKING!!!!!!! The straight party line vote in my home State of Rhode Island and Providence Plantations is an important tool of Democratic Party control — just check one box at the top and you’re done.  That box almost always will be Democratic in the most Democratic state in the country.

Posted by  ▪  January 8, 2013
Rarely if ever have I seen David Brooks nail an issue as much as he did on the nomination of Chuck Hagel to be defense secretary.

Posted by  ▪  January 8, 2013
Via Boston Herald, Liz won’t beat drum: Despite repeated claims she is “proud” of her Cherokee heritage, newly minted U.S. Sen.

Will the last person leaving Rhode Island please turn off the Democrats

Posted by  ▪  January 8, 2013
My home State of Rhode Island and Providence Plantations is under the foot of the unions and the Democratic politicians they control.
