This Week With Alan Caruba

By Rich Kozlovich

As usual, Alan clearly outlines the latest issues and problems with depth and clarity. This week Alan has dealt with the latest issues confronting society in a way that gives the proper understanding with courage. These are issues that really do need to be addressed with depth, clarity and facts that can bear up under the spotlight of reality; irrespective of the latest philosophical flavor of the day!

The media is either morally corrupt, incompetent, stupid; or all three! Thankfully the internet gives access to facts and views that were never seen by the public before. We have to understand that the left is immune to any moral standard. They will jump back and forth depending on what will gain them the power they so adamantly desire.  What is worse is that they will do it with such passion they easily convince everyone of their absolute and total conviction to whatever cause is popular at the time. Yet, to the left; yesterday's absolute truth can just as easily be tomorrow's absolute nonsense! We clearly know that leftist aren't stupid; so that can only leave insane?

Considering the history of leftists governments and the nightmare societies they created insanity is the only explanation. However, considering that the history of these types is well known; what excuse can everyone else offer for believing them? Since ignorance isn't an option, the only two options are stupidity and insanity. Take your pick!

Let’s Start With Alan’s “Cartoon Roundup!”

The Rise of Black-on-White Violence
The media and the usual race-mongers made sure that all of America knew about George Zimmerman’s killing of Trayvon Martin in Sanford, Florida on February 26. The local police initially did not arrest Zimmerman because it was an obvious case of self-defense. There was no such outcry, however, when a month later on March 26 a 50-year-old white man was attacked and beaten with a hammer by two black teens, in Midway, Florida, just six miles from Sanford. The Orlando Sentinel published a description of the attackers, but neglected to mention their race. One of them had just finished a seventeen month prison sentence.

Only in America
1) Only in America could politicians talk about the greed of the rich at a $40,000 a plate campaign fund raising event.
2) Only in America could people claim that the government still discriminates against black Americans when we have a black President, a black Attorney General, and roughly 18% of the federal workforce is black. 12% of the population is black.

Why I am Never Asked to Give a Commencement Speech
Short of having the President of the United States or Jay Leno deliver the commencement address at your university or college, I would put money on the fact that few graduates can tell you who did give the speech, let alone what they said.  In a faux commencement address by Woody Allen he wrote “More than at any other time in history, humanity is at a crossroads: one path leads to despair and utter hopelessness; the other, to total extinction. Let us pray we have the wisdom to choose correctly.”

Gay Marriage is Obama's Poison Pill
Let the chatteratti and political pundits say what they will, dancing around the issue of gay marriage on Obama’s chances of reelection, but I will tell you plainly that he has swallowed a poison pill.   Gay marriage is a deal-breaker for a vast swath of American voters that includes Catholics as well as the black and Hispanic communities. Urbanites and suburbanites may say that they are okay with gay marriage, but what they tell pollsters and what they say privately among friends and family is far different. Americans may want to be tolerant, but their distaste for the gay lifestyle and incessant demands for acceptance is deeply offensive to most people.

Campaign Tactics and Republican Fears
It says a lot about the current state of Democratic Party desperation when James Carville, Clinton’s famed campaign chief, in a recent CNN commentary wrote “You think that Democrats around the country are going to win—as I hear time and time again from people on the street. I ask: What are you smoking? What are you drinking? What are you snorting or just what in hell are you thinking?” Republicans, too, are worried. It is a common theme among conservatives, the fear that Mitt Romney will commit the same mistake that John McCain did against Obama; the fear that Romney is “too nice.” I say that in a political context, but it is my belief that Romney's school boy smile hides an iron will.

It's the Government, Stupid
The political pundits all agree that the November elections will be all about the economy. I suspect that most Americans draw their conclusions about the economy from empirical observations such as whether they or someone they know is out of work, whether shops in their communities are closing, and the price of gasoline at the pump.  While the economy is covered by the business media, newspapers, magazines, and cable channels, it tends to get short-shrift in the mainstream media because there well may be a shortage of reporters who actually understand economic trends beyond the very obvious.

Is Prom Night Also Condom Night?
On May 2nd I received a news release from NuVo Condoms announcing that they “will donate condoms to any high school administration that would like to have a free supply of condoms available to distribute to students before their school prom.” The offer can also be found on their website, so—no—I am not making this up.
