“If marriage is changing, then fine. But let’s not pretend that marriage is changing because one woman in her late 30s living in New York City has gone through a lot of semi-quality men and declared them all “unmarriageable” and herself as “happy” being single.”

The Stir

“One of the main thesis’ of the Ron Paul 2008 Presidential campaign, where genesis of the Tea Party movement lies, is the fact one cannot have a large military, national security and intelligence establishments and a small government at the same time. It doesn’t work that way contrary to what the politicians will have you believe. If Tea Partiers are serious (and Larison is betting they’re not), then they have to call for, not just cuts in the Pentagon budget, but fundamental changes in the way U.S. conducts foreign and military policy and subsequently security policy, in line with current budget, economic and resource realities. This is the challenge which must be presented to the Tea Partiers and must pushed upon them to meet. If they do so, then the Tea Parties can have a transformative effect on U.S. policy and politics and broaden itself to being a larger movement. If not, they simply pass into history as just another faction, another protest group, a white, middle-class version of ACORN looking to protect its share of the shrinking pie with the battle cry: “What’s Mine is Mine and What’s Yours is Negotiable!” which will be absorbed and then ignored again by their patrons.”

“It wasn’t until I got to New York that I became Kansan. Everyone there kept reminding me they were Jewish or Irish, or whatever, so I kept reminding them that I was mid-western. Before I knew it, I actually began to brag about being from Kansas! I discovered I had something a bit unique, but it was the nature of New York that forced me to claim my past.”

Thus did Haley throw the town fathers of Yazoo City, many of whom he must have come to know as friends, under the bus to restore his acceptability to media elites, some of whom he probably detests.

Such are the demands of political advancement in America.

“But here’s what I find odd: that progressives instinctively like the idea of women killing and dying in war. Older forms of liberalism might have cared about peace and liberty a bit more than egalitarianism and flinging hydrogen bombs through glass ceilings. Florence Nightingale, after all, was in a healing rather killing profession. Oh well. Onward, Feminist Soldiers!”
