    And as the bible teaches us, to minister to the needs of God's creation is an act of worship, to ignore those needs is to dishonor the God who made us. Let us vote no on this budget as an act of worship and for America's children.
    Aha! Injecting religion into politics! So when will Andew Sullivan start including Nancy Pelosi in his continuing diatribe against the Vast Christianist Menace?

  • Are you a far leftist? [And reading this blog? How masochistic do you think your readers are?-ed. Never mind.] You might be interested in Arnold Kling's latest where he describes his idelogical trajectory from "Far Left to libertarian".
    I think that quite a few libertarians have travelled that route, and yet I cannot think of anyone who has gone the other direction. This leads me to suspect that:

    1. Far Leftists and libertarianism have much in common.
    2. Libertarians know something that Far Leftists do not.
