A Good Question

 First, Krauthammer noted that this action by the president is an about-face from where he stood in 2008. At that time, then-candidate Obama wanted to maintain the embargo on Cuba as a means of leverage so that the country would to move towards a government that promotes human rights.

Krauthammer frustration was summed up in one devastating question:  “Is there no tyrant or anti-American center in the world that Obama will not appease for nothing in return?”

The answer to that question is, of course, no. He will appease all of them

You Gotta Like a Well-Armed Woman

New pink and very lethal weapons for women.

Feminists will be upset about the weapon and really upset with this paragraph "The Pavona transcends the whole pink-gun discussion. Instead of just basic pink, EAA offers the frame in a range of fashionable colors, including charcoal and a deep imperial blue, along with the expected purplish-pink hue termed “Fandango” in the brochures."

My wife doesn't like guns but that is the only flaw in her.

Why Christian Comic Books Are Needed

A wonderful column by Dan Lawlis: Over the years comic book story lines have grown up in subject matter, that is, the heroes face death more, but they haven't grown up spiritually. What's the result of this development? Well, you can see it all around you. The characters get angry at life. They become bitter, grim, mean, dark brooding types. Batman, Wolverine, even formally colorful upbeat characters like Spiderman and Superman have become more evil looking, grey and colorless. ...The Christian message is the positive one. It says go out and fight for what's right, but you can't lose, because there is always hope in this life, and the next. The bad guys may win the battle, but we have faith that we will win the war.

(Read the whole essay. Think he's right on target)  Would also add we need books with Christian messages too. Mine are shown at the top of the page.

The Hobbit: Battle of the Five Armies

in which, Inklings scholar Sorina Higgins assures us, the myth becomes a mess.  (Actually, she has a few good words for the film. Saw one review of Intersteller that was only passable, but other critics said it was a exceptional film.)

There is No Backlash Against Muslims

In a touching and sound column in the New YorkTimes, an Australian author asks important questions about the siege in Sydney but adds this paragraph "Perhaps the most heartening part of the Australian response was the enormous wave of concern that arose expressing fear that the siege would result in aggressive behavior toward Muslims."

There has bee no violent backlash toward Muslims in Western Civilization. None. Nada. After 9/11, dozens of Muslims were not dragged through the streets and hung. You don't see random attacks on Muslims in the West, although you have a lot of Muslim criminals in jails for making random attacks on other individuals. Just the opposite is true. The social workers, police and others in Rotherham and other cities looked the other way when children were gang raped and tortured by Muslim sex predators
