Irreconcilable Differences: 
Why Americans Cannot Agree

~ Robert Arvay ~ 

Years ago I was exchanging messages with a committed liberal 
on an internet discussion board. We were attempting to bridge a 
gap which, as it turns out, now seems utterly unbridgeable. I 
give the other fellow credit for effort, but we both failed.

The eye-opening moment came when the liberal responded to 
the question, what is your definition of a good government? His 
response was almost word for word, the definition of a 
good parent.

Meanwhile, another major Guatemalan newspaper, El Periódico
reports that among the initial 1,000 Central American minors 
housed at Lackland Air Force base in Texas, two thirds-are from 
Guatemala, El Salvador and Honduras, while 12% are Mexican. 
About 80% of the minors housed at the base are male, and 83% 
are over age 14.

Photos From The Past 

“These photographers may have never known the significance of 
the pictures they took and that millions would be marveling at
them in the future. From thousands of images, I chose these to

life used to be.”

“Hope & Change” for the 
Rest of the World – Coming Soon 
to a Country Near You!

Barack Obama and his allies in the European Union claim that

Vladimir Putin is interested in territorial expansion to former 
Soviet Union borders. They characterize Putin’s response to the 
anarchistic overthrow of the legitimate government in Ukraine, a 
pledge to protect the Russian population in Crimea, as 
aggressive and illegitimate.

However, it is not Putin’s response that is the issue here. The real 
issue is whether or not the duplicitous Barack Obama, along with 
his calculating partners in the EU – in this latest episode – had 
the right to force regime change in Ukraine.

The History of Spoons, 
Forks, and Knives

ancient Egyptian spoon

Spoons are one of the oldest eating utensils on the planet. This 
isn’t particularly surprising if one considers that nearly as long as 
humans have needed food, they’ve required something to scoop 
it up with. Unlike knives and forks, that for the most part needed 
to be fashioned, natural spoons could be utilized by employing 
such things as seashells or conveniently shaped stones. Sure, the 
earliest known instances of these didn’t have handles yet, but 
from these humble beginnings, the spoon was born.

Then there’s the grim twist just under the surface of Churchill’s 
Romanticism and braggadocio. The last of his famous lines is a 
brief requiem for the end of his beloved war: “If it wasn’t for those 
damn Yanks, we could have kept the war going another ten years.” 
As Loades rightly points out, little glimmers into Churchill’s psyche 
like this suggests his madness wasn’t all fun story fodder worthy 
of lionization.

The Time Has Come 
for America to Stand Up

by Caroline Glick

Eyal Yifrah, Gil-Ad Shaer and Naftali Fraenkel were teenagers 
abducted and brutally murdered by Palestinian terrorists from 
Hamas, a partner in the Palestinian Authority’s unity government.

The teens’ abduction and murder was supported by Palestinian 
society as a whole. While Israelis were united as never before in 
worry and prayer for the missing boys, Palestinian society was 
united in its expressed delight at the abduction and murder 
of the boys.

The international community’s indifferent response to the 
Palestinian abduction of the boys demonstrated how far the 
Palestinian campaign to deny the legitimacy of Israel and to 
dehumanize Israelis has advanced.

Every year the US gives the PA up to $500 million in aid. At this 
point, it is impossible to rationally argue that aid to the PA 
advances the cause of peace, which is supposed to be the point 
of the aid.
