Listening to Bush tonight, I couldn't help thinking that the Democrat/Media's main issues (e.g., whether Bush gleefully watched "Brokeback Mountain," whether abortion on demand will survive into the Iranian nuclear age, whether a photo of Jack Abramoff and Bush exists) are 100% irrelevant to the pressing issues right now. How about America's competitiveness in the world? Bush is at least addressing the issue where it's most important: science/math education and freeing trade restrictions and taxes. The Democrats? They clapped when the value of the "American worker" was praised, but have no program, except for one that doles out favors to special interest groups, such as teachers' unions. Bush ripped the Islamofascists, but the Dems have ABSOLUTELY NOTHING TO OFFER, except criticism of the President's surveillance program and the lack of a "timetable" for pulling the troops out of Iraq.
The Democrats are utterly irrelevant. Never vote for them.

Had enough of the "love the troops, hate the idea of them winning" rhetoric of the Democratic party? If so, you'll loooove this column, which compares the indistinguishable quotes of Howard Dean, John Murtha, and Osama bin Laden. Who says they're traitors?

How do American students stack up against their foreign counterparts? If they lived in Asia, they would probably take the short bus. Perhaps the most damning indictment of liberal, teachers'-union-run public schools ever, this functional capacity evaluation proves that college students are practically illiterate when asked to take on common tasks. Guess which courses of study are the least educational? If you don't know, here they are:
The survey showed a strong relationship between analytic coursework and literacy. Students in two-year and four-year schools scored higher when they took classes that challenged them to apply theories to practical problems or weigh competing arguments.
Competing arguments? Analytical coursework? Name a sociology, womens' studies or African American studies department where you'll hear a "competing argument." For that matter, name a public school where the bulk of the teachers aren't liberals pumping kids full of defeatist 60s rhetoric about "social justice," i.e., communism.
Oh well, at least our kids will understand "diversity"!
