Pope lectures Irish bishops: "Denouncing cases of clerical sex abuse as "egregious crimes", Pope Benedict has told Irish bishops that they must find out the truth, seek justice and do whatever is necessary to prevent abuse from occurring again. Meeting with Irish bishops on an ad limina visit to Rome, Pope Benedict said the crimes had caused deep wounds, ABC News reports. Bishops must find out the truth, seek justice and do whatever was necessary to prevent abuse happening again, he said... The Irish Church is reeling from more than 100 allegations of child sexual abuse by 26 priests in the western Fern diocese between 1962 and 2002. More than 5,000 complaints have been registered and more than $330 million has been payed out in compensation, an AFP report added."

Ohio to enshrine ignorance in its constitution: "Among the many ballot issues facing Ohio voters this November is a proposal to enshrine the minimum wage in the state constitution. The so-called "Ohio Fair Wage Amendment," a.k.a. "Issue Two," would amend the Ohio constitution to increase the state minimum wage to $6.85 in 2007, and then index the minimum wage to inflation thereafter. Additional provisions in the 1,000-word proposal would impose new record-keeping requirements on employers and facilitate class-action litigation. Ohio already suffers from an unfavorable business climate. Passing Issue Two would make it much worse. The economic case against a minimum wage increase is well known. Raising the minimum wage slows job growth by increasing the cost of labor. It is a basic economic truth that when the price of something goes up, the amount demanded declines. So, when the government mandates higher wages, unemployment rises as a direct result. Those workers who keep their jobs may earn more, but this comes at the expense of those who are left without jobs.... Among the forces behind Issue Two are labor unions and groups that could be referred to as the "religious left."

Not deaf enough: "The board of trustees of the nation's premier school for the deaf voted Sunday to terminate the appointment of the incoming president, former provost Jane Fernandes. The vote at Gallaudet University came after a month of protests by students and faculty members. ''Although undoubtedly there will be some members of the community who have differing views on the meaning of this decision, we believe that it is a necessity at this point,'' the board said. Protesters had said Fernandes, 50, was a divisive and ineffective leader. Fernandes said that some people do not consider her ''deaf enough'' because she didn't learn to use American Sign Language until she was in her 20s."

"Noble savages" thank their Leftist supporter: "South African Nobel laureate for literature Nadine Gordimer was robbed and locked in a store room by thieves who assaulted her in her home, police said Saturday. Police Sergeant Sanku Tsunke said Gordimer, 83, did not sustain serious injuries when she was assaulted on Thursday for refusing to hand over her wedding ring. He said the Gordimer was robbed of cash and jewelry when three unknown men gained entrance to her home at about 10.30am on Thursday. Gordimer, who was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1991, is noted for her novels and short stories about the inhumanity of apartheid."

Soros the psychopath: "Chilling: That's the only word for the glimpse into the mind of George Soros provided by Steve Croft of 60 Minutes in an interview broadcast last night. Steve Gilbert of Sweetness & Light does an excellent job of highlighting and commenting on a partial transcript of the interview, concerning Soros' behavior during the Holocaust in Hungary, when he was a 14 year old Jewish boy posing as a Christian".

Why one Democrat likes illegals: "Nancy Pelosi has a special affection for illegal aliens, no doubt thinking how liberalized entry for poor migrant workers could help in staffing the non-union vineyards that Pelosi and her multi-millionaire husband own in Napa Valley. Pelosi, the ardent advocate for labor causes, apparently has chosen not to hire members of the United Farm Workers to pick her vineyard grapes while at the same time she has chosen to sell those grapes to non-union wineries. She has an obvious conflict of interest every time that she votes on an immigration security bill because she and her husband personally benefit from the influx of cheap labor without whom "[N]ot one bottle of wine would get made here," according to a farm worker advocate"



"All the worth which the human being possesses, all spiritual reality, he possesses only through the State." -- 19th century German philosopher Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel. Hegel is the most influential philosopher of the Left -- inspiring Karl Marx, the American "Progressives" of the early 20th century and university socialists to this day.

The Big Lie of the late 20th century was that Nazism was Rightist. It was in fact typical of the Leftism of its day. It was only to the Right of Stalin's Communism. The very word "Nazi" is a German abbreviation for "National Socialist" (Nationalsozialistisch)
