This Parallel Between LBJs And Obamas War Plans Will Terrify You

This is more than a bit worrying. Johnson did an outstanding job of messing up the war effort by his ridiculous micro-management. But one has to admit that he did pay attention. With Obama we’re likely to have the spectacle of micromanagement without supervision. Worse, unimaginably worse in every way. From the Federalist. Here’s where […]

Why would anyone still love Britain?

Well, tomorrow (British time) Scotland will decide whether or not to leave the United Kingdom. It will sadden me if they decide to.
