Our Christopher touts his latest book, God Is Not Great, around the Bible Belt and apparently finds a Christian theocracy less than imminent.

Bush Speech to Vets

Lindsay Perigo's picture
Submitted by Lindsay Perigo on Thu, 2007-08-23 07:49

"I know some people doubt the universal appeal of liberty, or worry that the Middle East isn't ready for it. Others believe that America's presence is destabilizing, and that if the United States would just leave a place like Iraq those who kill our troops or target civilians would no longer threaten us. Today I'm going to address these arguments."

A rare headline in yesterday's leftie Dominion Post: "War Support Surges." The Dom-Post reproduced a Times report that President Bush "plans to continue his Iraq troop surge well into next year after a string of positive reports left Democrats increasingly powerless to end the war."

"The mills of justice grind with maddening slowness, but they do at least grind." Hitchens presents the latest findings on Saddamite scum George Galloway, MP, currently in New Zealand, whose minders surprisingly declined our kind invitation for him to appear on my show.

Seven Lively Virtues!

Submitted by Lindsay Perigo on Tue, 2007-07-10 07:08

In my article, Seven Deadly Sins (Linz Sinz), I listed seven character traits whose practitioners occupy the lowest rung of hell in my personal cosmology—gratuitous and premature umbrage-taking in this, the Age of Umbrage; dilettantism; solipsism; cowardice; the misuse of humour; “Attention Deficit Disorder”; and hypocrisy.

SOLOC 5 Postponed

Submitted by Lindsay Perigo on Tue, 2007-07-03 21:44

Sorry about doing this yet again, but as the conference date conflicts with my upcoming radio gig Kelly and I have decided to postpone SOLOC 5. I suggested carrying on without me but in the end we both decided it would be better to wait. We'll put Kelly's groundwork to good use in Atlanta in due course. Stay tuned. Apologies for the inconvenience.

A Constitution for New Freeland—Preamble

Click here for the full constitution.

When in the course of human affairs it becomes necessary for citizens to break the political chains that have hitherto bound them, and to reclaim the individual sovereignty which is their birthright, it can be opportune for them to declare the causes which have impelled them to self-liberation. We, the freedom-loving citizens of New Zealand, choose to do so at this epoch-making moment.
