no, it’s spelled right

All Credibility lost

This VENT by Michelle Malkin @ Hot Air TV encapsulates a push by Sen. John McCain and others to have captured terrorists treated “more humanely”. Even to the point of having their “Miranda rights” read to them. What rights – these are terrorists!

He’s also against any clarification as to what should be considered as “inhumane torture”, something GW is asking for; instead preferring to leave the Geneva Convention language vague. Presumably so that the enemy won’t know exactly how much torture they can inflict upon our troops before they exceed what the Geneva Convention allows – hence fear of overreaching GC boundaries will mean less torture. Oh yeah, that’ll work!

The motive for all this: So that our troops will be likewise treated more humanely if captured!

Does anyone really think that the Islamic Jihadists give a Tinker’s Damn about the Geneva Convention!

Will someone please fit that fool for a straight jacket!

Oops, I’ve derided… I was only going to report.

We report… you deride

Lecturer connects freedom, prosperity

A fairly short report on Dr. Andrew Bernstein’s appearance at Penn State, hosted by the Penn State Objectivist Club, written by Laura Mammarella, staff writer for The Daily Collegian Online appears at

The lecture title was Global Capitalism: The Solution to World Oppression and Poverty.

Dr. Bernstein was quoted in the last paragraph of the report:

In the modern world, we’re moving gradually toward statism and violating individual rights. [Students] need to realize their rights are slowly being threatened and eroded. The human mind requires freedom.

A comment from a student attendee:

I thought he had a lot of interesting points, but some were mildly contradictory. I think his spiel was too full of rhetoric.

Sounds as though someone’s “mildly full” of something, but I doubt it was Dr. Bernstein’s “spiel”.

The full lecture content is not provided in the report.
