Muslim women under Shari’a Law

Sudan recently for wearing (wide) trousers, read about the life of women under Shari’a (religious Muslim) law. Gaza is almost there, but the rest of the world is the goal. A warning.

Shari’a, that is Muslim law, controls the private as well as the public life of the woman.

Dumping Dollar Isn’t China’s Goal but remaking World economy is

China disclosed the other day that its foreign exchange reserves had increased to about $2.4 trillion in 2009, a gain of $453 billion for the year. These stupendous figures — and the likelihood that the country’s reserves will rise by a comparable amount this year — have now become a financial, economic and geopolitical reality of surpassing significance.

US preparing military for possible Iran conflict

The US does not want to see confrontation with Iran but is still preparing its military for that possibility, America’s top uniformed officer said Thursday.

Mike Mullen, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said during an appearance at the Washington Institute for Near East Policy.

A troubled thanksgiving in 2009

I have always loved Thanksgiving. It is my favorite national holiday. It reminds Americans how fortunate we are to be Americans. And it unites Americans around gratitude, the greatest human trait. Gratitude is the mother of both goodness and happiness. The ungrateful cannot be either happy or good.

So, it is with a heavy heart that I write that my mood on this Thanksgiving will not be the same as on any other I have ever experienced.

Choosing federalism, Choosing freedom

After the release of my last column “Freedom’s Destruction by Constitutional De-Construction,” I received so many responses to my statement, “The people of the states [must] once again reject this national form of government and assert and defend the principles of federalism,” that I felt the need to develop this subject more thoroughly. The question I received was: “How can I choose federalism once again?” Indeed, answering this question is crucial to injecting a cure for the sickness and illness of tyrannical, national control over the people of the states. Undoubtedly, we are going to need an acute dosage to even begin ridding ourselves of the disease destroying the body of our once-great federation.
