NATO Murders Children, Spring Spheres, Where’s Easter? And Nice Hats

May 6, 2011 by  

*Does this really help protect liberty? Over the weekend, reports from Libya say that NATO airstrikes in the city managed to kill three of Moammar Gadhafi’s grandchildren and one of his sons. Why are we murdering innocent children in a country that poses absolutely no threat to us?

*Political correctness run amuck. I have dozens of clippings that could fit this headline. But the craziest has to be from the school district in Seattle, Wash., that declared that from now on, all Easter eggs had to be referred to as “Spring spheres.” No, folks: That should be the description of the obviously brainless nincompoops who issue such edicts.

*Hey, Mr. President, how could you forget about Easter? For the first time in living memory, the White House did not issue a proclamation two weeks ago acknowledging the most important event in the Christian calendar. Not a word about Easter was uttered by the Oval Office. Previously, however, President Barack Obama issued at least three official White House proclamations honoring Muslim holidays.

*Most of all, I loved the hats. Did you force yourself out of bed at 4 a.m. EDT to watch the wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton? Thanks to the miracle of digital recording, I was able to sleep in and still catch all the action. I was as enchanted by pageantry as those million Brits who lined the streets. Those Royals can sure put on a show, can’t they?
