Freedom Esoterica Friday

New Victor Davis Hanson piece.

Jay Nordlinger gets angry - and frankly, I enjoyed the results.
Speaking of the stinkin’ U.N.: The vote on the human-rights committee to condemn Castro’s Cuba was 21 to 17, with 15 abstaining. That is, 21 countries voted for the resolution of condemnation, 17 voted against, and 15 abstained. Let’s have a look at the roll call, shall we? It makes for interesting reading. I’ll go alphabetically...Argentina abstained — bastards. Brazil abstained — ditto. (Lula really protecting his left flank, huh? His core supporters must love torture, murder, and total repression. At least Lula didn’t vote no.)...Congo voted no — beautiful. Cuba — guess what?! — Cuba voted no! (You knew that Castro sits on the human-rights committee, right?)

Get you hands off Cookie Monster, you [CENSORED]! Jonah Goldberg explains. Blasted PC-ers.

"Every day you may make progress. Every step may be fruitful. Yet there will stretch out before you an ever-lengthening, ever-ascending, ever-improving path. You know you will never get to the end of the journey. But this, so far from discouraging, only adds to the joy and glory of the climb."
Sir Winston Churchill
