Who says conservatives have no sense of humor? Poor Obama, he's taken in by his own good press and fair-weather fawners. Steyn is trying to help. Don't we all need balance and a dose of reality when people spend tens of thousands of dollars to be near us?

It's absolutely disgusting and shameful how the Left talked up the Arab Spring when in reality it was obvious to anyone who cared to think about it for it a minute without an agenda that only some other thug would take the place of the US-supported thug who was in charge before the revolution. The link above is an article by Mark Steyn in which he puts his humorous approbium on the whole sordid, hot mess.
The Left has failed to properly castigate Islamic fundamentalists for their treatment of homosexuals and women, and, in some cases, American Occupiers have allied with Islamic fundamentalists against American values -- who couldn't "like" that?
At some point, either honest liberals must take a stand for what is right, or we'll have to call liberalism dead and gone. If not dead and gone, liberalism is very sick.
National Review has some good writers -- Mark Steyn being one -- but they often settle in cushy establishment positions which have weakened opposition to statism. There are certain ideas and economic realities which can't be ignored just to get along or because the ideas have been demonized and aren't popular in certain circles. Jonah Goldberg is tough sometimes, but at other times he loses focus.
I'm sure Steyn couldn't care less about my bit of advice. I like Steyn's writing and I usually agree with what he writes (here comes the but), but, Steyn should learn the difference between isolationism and non-interventionism, and, if he does know the difference, then he should stop using isolationism when non-interventionism is what Paul supports. Isolationism entails tariffs and all sorts of protectionism, while non-interventionism is basically calling for an end to the hopeless interventions which Steyn himself is criticizing, such as in Afghanistan. We can still defend our country, be open and active involved in free trade, diplomacy, technological cooperation, innovation in how we address regional conflicts, and also assure international players that the US is not a doormat while avoiding nation-building and long slogs that change nothing but do waste lives and money.
Mark Steyn writes a good article about America's awful financial situation. Is anyone paying attention?
