This is what America will look like if the Environmentalists get there way?

The Greenest Show on Earth: Democrats Gear Up for Denver - WSJ.com: "Among them: No fried food. And, on the theory that nutritious food is more vibrant, each meal should include 'at least three of the following colors: red, green, yellow, blue/purple, and white.' (Garnishes don't count.) At least 70% of ingredients should be organic or grown locally, to minimize emissions from fuel burned during transportation."

Charles Krauthammer on John McCain & Drilling on National Review Online:

"Our environmental imperialism does not just redistribute pollution to people who can least afford it. It generally increases the total overall damage because oil extraction in the wealthier and more technologically advanced U.S. is far more environmentally sensitive."

What a great phrase! Amazing how the tide is slowing turning against the Wiccans, druids, et al of the environmental movement!

Absolutely chilling - the Canadian law and its advocacy. Not the free speech rights in the U.S>

American Exception - Out of Step With Allies, U.S. Defends Freedom to Offend - Series - NYTimes.com:

"Mr. Steyn, the author of the Maclean’s article, said the proceeding here illustrated some important distinctions. “The problem with so-called hate speech laws is that they’re not about facts,” he said in a telephone interview. “They’re about feelings.”

“What we’re learning here is really the bedrock difference between the United States and the countries that are in a broad sense its legal cousins,” Mr. Steyn added. “Western governments are becoming increasingly comfortable with the regulation of opinion. The First Amendment really does distinguish the U.S., not just from Canada but from the rest of the Western world.”"

Mr. Henninger is spot on.

Wonder Land - WSJ.com:

The irony too bitter to swallow is that Barack Obama's identity politics trumped Hillary Clinton's identity politics. Put differently, what goes around comes around.

'Identity politics,' something new, emerged from the dank vapors of the late 1960s and 1970s. The theory came hard-boiled and soft-boiled.

The hard version introduced people, mostly college students, to an America partitioned into categories of race, gender, ethnicity and sexuality. The softer version has flown for 30 years under all sorts of euphemized banners – diversity, multiculturalism, celebrating our differences. Only one campaign is celebrating our differences this week.

I have always preferred Barack obama to Hillary Clinton becuase I wanted the Clinton Machine and the priapetitic and money-grubbing themes out of soicietal influence. A policy debate minus the Clinton scum is what I wanted to see.

Here is Bill Bennett's take on Obama from The Corner at National Review.

"And thus the Democratic party is about to nominate a far left candidate in the tradition of George McGovern, albeit without McGovern’s military and political record. The Democratic party is about to nominate a far-left candidate in the tradition of Michael Dukakis, albeit without Dukakis’s executive experience as governor. The Democratic party is about to nominate a far left candidate in the tradition of John Kerry, albeit without Kerry’s record of years of service in the Senate. The Democratic party is about to nominate an unvetted candidate in the tradition of Jimmy Carter, albeit without Jimmy Carter’s religious integrity as he spoke about it in 1976. Questions about all these attributes (from foreign policy expertise to executive experience to senatorial experience to judgment about foreign leaders to the instructors he has had in his cultural values) surround Barack Obama. And the Democratic party has chosen him."
