Culture Watch, Vol. 74
Nancy Morgan
July 6, 2009

As the nation celebrated the 4th of July, President Obama used the occasion to assure the Russian people, ahead of his visit this week, that the United States and Russia are, you guessed it, 'equal.' Millions of Americans would beg to differ.
The big news last week was the resignation of Alaska Governor, Sarah Palin. Pundits are all atwitter and speculation reigns. The full story in this week's article I'm With Sarah!
Though it wasn't reported as such, Americans may now say Mission Accomplished regards Iraq. Iraqi forces assumed formal control of Baghdad and other cities on Tuesday after American troops hand over security in urban areas in a defining step toward ending the U.S. combat role in the country. Iraqi celebrated sovereignty day. I wonder when our own states be able to do the same.
Florida is now the 37th state where a resolution declaring state sovereignty against the federal government has been introduced.
The U.S. Supreme Court has ruled in favor of a group of white firefighters in New Haven, Conn., who alleged they were unfairly denied promotions because of race. This may spell the end of 'affirmative action'. It may also cause trouble for Supreme Court nominee Sotomayor, who, once again, has been overturned by the Supreme Court.

States from Georgia to California have defaulted on their obligations to their citizens and to businesses operating in their states. They have issued IOUs instead of tax refunds, as they cast about for ever more goods and service to levy taxes on. Hey, isn't that why Bernie Madoff was convicted?

A battle is brewing over state sales taxes on online purchases, with and scaling back their operations in states that demand they collect these taxes.

Looks like the dollar won't be the premier currency much longer. India has joined Russia and China in pushing for an alternate reserve currency. Meanwhile, our government continues pursuing policies that will further undermine the dollar. Sigh.
The Senate health care 'reform' would make health insurance mandatory, kinda like car insurance, with $1,000 fines for non-compliance. I guess 'choice' only applies to aborting babies.
With the housing market still reeling, our elected representatives in DC have decided that under the pending cap and trade legislation, a homeowner would be required to retrofit their home to conform to the government's (environmentalist's) 'green' standards, before being allowed to sell. 
The federal minimum wage goes up this month just as job losses are sending new alarms about the economy. And lest we forget, the FDA now wants to place restrictions on Tylenol.
The federal government continues implementing new policies at an alarming rate, even as VP Biden admitted that, oops,  "The truth is, we and everyone else misread the economy," in trying to explain why the billions of our tax dollars labeled 'stimulus' have done jack.

More 'oops' from our governing elite: At least 38 states have overestimated tax revenues, by large margins. And we're still handing over more power to these guys? Aargh.

Hondurans rally for democracy

Our government also admitted it "misread the scale of the Honduran rift." This, as Obama stood firmly with Chavez, Castro and the ousted Honduran dictator. Though Obama won't 'meddle' in Iran, he had no such qualms when freedom seeking people were successful in the Honduran coup. Obama labeled the coup 'not legal.' Questions still remain as to Obama's own legality, as his birth certificate remains under wraps.

The Dow Jones has launched a sharia compliant Islamic index which is to begin trading on the New York Stock Exchange.
The homosexual rape case at Duke University continues to be ignored by the old media.

The Nebraska man who abandoned his nine children under the state's Safe Haven law last year is expecting to become the father of twins. Good thing he never met the octomom.

What happens when you put a Muslim imam, a Christian priest, a rabbi and a Buddhist monk in a room with 10 atheists? You'll find out as Turkey launches a new gameshow that aims to convert atheists.
Congressional spending on overseas travel is up almost tenfold since 1995, and has nearly tripled since 2001. That's a 50% jump since Democrats took control of Congress two years ago.
I leave you with this food for thought:
“Of all tyrannies, a tyranny exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It may be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron’s cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end, for they do so with the approval of their consciences.” —C.S. Lewis
Till next week, keep smiling,
