• Angry at coal? Then turn off your lights
The willingness of Americans to be persuaded to do things against their own interests seems to have no limits, which must give great encouragement to our enemies.The latest evidence of that came a little south of Kalispell in the People’s Republic of Missoula (hat tip to Ayn Rand) where the local Revolutionary Council; (oops, I mean City Council!) last week passed a resolution to investigate the “environmental impact” of coal trains passing through the city.

• • America in good hands with Mama Grizzlies
Atlas Shrugged |
Clearly, [Jean] Walterskirchen’s fears more than 50 years ago about where the country was headed were not unfounded. Nor would I consider the timing of Walterskirchen’s warning within one year of the 1957 publication of Ayn Rand’s “Atlas Shrugged” to be entirely coincidental. Both women were tireless warriors, who like the Greek goddess Athena came equipped with not just wisdom but the torch of liberty — and their words still burn bright with the thunderbolt of truth today.

• • Partisans? Or patriots?
I have taken inspiration from the symbol of Athena and have found proud women warriors for truth, justice and the American way in both some contemporary leaders such as Sarah Palin and some historical figures such as Ayn Rand. It is probably not coincidental that both women have been the subject of vicious attacks — not because they are women but because they are right, and ferociously so, unyieldingly so.
