The Objective Eye

"Every movement that seeks to enslave a country, every dictatorship or potential dictatorship, needs some minority group as a scapegoat which it can blame for the nation's troubles and use as a justification of its own demand for dictatorial powers. In Soviet Russia, the scapegoat was the bourgeoisie; in Nazi Germany, it was the Jewish people; in America, it is the businessmen."
- Ayn Rand, "America's Persecuted Minority: Big Business" (1961)

The Iraq the MSM Don't Want You To See

Now Playing: "Perfect Flight" from Billy Currie's "Transportation"  (disc #5 of the brilliant but short-lived instrumentals-only series on the defunct I.R.S. NoSpeak label)

I have another take on Clinton's Orwell Care - specifically its self-refuting reliance on the analogy to compulsory auto liability insurance - but I must push all else aside in favor of freelance journalist Michael J. Totten's article "Anbar Awakens Part 1: The Battle of Ramadi".

Set aside some time and read Totten's astounding - and newsworthy, for news outlets that are rational - story of the transformation of the Iraqi city of Ramadi. What was once the most dangerous al-Qaeda infestation in Iraq, is now one of its safest and most enthusiastically pro-American cities.

Totten has just posted Part II: Hell is Over. In a perfect world, some Congressional Children would be sat down in front of this material and required to memorize it verbatim. Alas, coercing the coercers is not a high probability. Instead I recommend doing your part to make this article go viral. Spread the word/URL to everyone you know. This story needs to escape The Spike.
