Well said! From Boortz:

A poll out today says that eight out of ten Americans don't think that President Bush has a clear plan for keeping gas prices down. Well, guess what. It is not the president's, nor the government's role in our economy to keep the gas prices down. That is a function of the marketplace. If you want to see prices go down, decrease the demand so that the supply will increase.

We see here an illustration of a fundamental problem in America .. the believe that it is the government's role to smooth every bump in the road and straighten every tight curve for all Americans.

Talk About "An Older Woman"!

This is crazy. From the AP:

KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia — A 33-year-old man in northern Malaysia has married a 104-year-old woman, saying mutual respect and friendship had turned to love, a news report said Tuesday.

It was Muhamad Noor Che Musa's first marriage and his wife's 21st, according to The Star newspaper which cited a report in the Malay-language Harian Metro tabloid.

Muhamad, an ex-army serviceman said he found peace and a sense of belonging after meeting Wook Kundor, whom he said he initially sympathized with because she was childless, old and alone, the report said.

"I am not after her money, as she is poor," Muhamad reportedly said. "Before meeting Wook, I never stayed in one place for long."

He said he hoped to help his new bride to master Roman script while she taught him Islamic religious knowledge.

The report did not say if any of Wook's previous 20 husbands are still alive.

Malaysian Muslim men are allowed by their religion to take up to four wives at a time, but reports of women who marry more than once are rare. Muslim women do not practice polygamy.

Malaysia's 26 million population comprises about 60 percent Muslims, almost all ethnic Malays. Large ethnic Chinese and Indian minorities are Buddhists, Hindus or Christians.

The West's Last Chance

I am just finishing "The West's Last Chance" by Tony Blankley. The book is incredible. If you want an interesting, thought provoking and terrifying book about the US/European dilema posed by radical Islam, read this book. I have been a fan of Tony Blankley for some time and now I am a HUGE fan. This is a must read for anyone that cares about the United States.
