Events surrounding the sub-prime mortgage loan crisis are getting out of hand. Both democrats and republicans are clamoring for an economic stimulus package to help stave off the recession that the media is joyously claiming is certain to befall our economy. A decapitated economy bodes well for democrats in the upcoming presidential elections. Yet this rare display of bipartisanship is nothing to celebrate or gloat over. The democrats, after all, have had control over congress for the last year. Voters just might link their influence to these results. The bloviating on this issue has reached ridiculous proportions as everyone is trying to shirk their responsibility for this mess. A mess that is both desirable and deserved.
Two stories coming out in the same day show the growing danger of the influence of Islam within our own foolishly tolerant society. There are two dead soldiers today. Dead because there is no way to tell the difference between a radical jihadist and a so called “moderate” Muslim. Worse, however, is news that Islam’s influence has reached within the walls of the Pentagon itself. Thus guaranteeing Islam will become a greater influence within the ranks of our own military. Still think Sharia Law can’t happen here?
