Monday Links

The NYT covers the blowout at the Deepwater Horizon. Obama's commission tasked to report on the blowout is now scheduled to issue its final report in mid-January.

Elizabeth Scalia lists the eight stories that shaped 2010.

At World Affairs, identifies a troubling, systemic and humorous lack of judgment in the Muslim World. Mossad trained rats and sharks indeed. These people are nuts.

Will Obama stand up for Iraqi Christians? I doubt it.

André Glucksmann explains our debt to the ancient Athenians in The Original Birth of Freedom

Per Sen. Coburn at No Sheeples, fiscal Armageddon cometh.

The top ten reasons businesses are fleeing California.

And on a related note, the 2010 Census shows that people are fleeing high tax / strong union states. They are settling in locales with little or no income tax and right to work laws that weaken unions.

If you have not read it already, do see Tom Blumer's great analysis of the Pelosi-Obama-Reid economy and the destruction it hath wrought. What amazes me is how these people sell themselves as protectors of the working man and minorities when the reality is that they are anything but. When will a Republican with some fire in the belly go on a crusade to point that out. Perhaps Marco Rubio might be best positioned to do that.

GW, great to see you back. Actually the fact that you started writing again inspired me to write a post today.
