Wall Street Journal Confirms Lynch Report Opinions

 I want to thank the Wall Street Journal for confirming the Lynch Report post yesterday.

Today's WSJ published three commentaries that affirm opinion from yesterday's Lynch report.  They are:

  • Barack Obama-san recount of the history of the last major country that tried to spend its way to "stimulus" -- Japan during its "lost decade" of the 1990s. Now we're told that a similar spending program -- a new New Deal -- will revive the U.S. economy. How do you say "good luck" in Japanese?
  • How Blackwater Serves America    The U.S. government sets comprehensive standards for the selection and training of security guards. Blackwater's competitively awarded contract contains dozens of pages detailing requirements for each position and specifying hour-by-hour training for each individual. This is all before they set foot in Iraq.  Our teams are not cooking meals or moving supplies. They are taking bullets. They are military veterans who have chosen to serve their country once again. Very few people know someone who would voluntarily go into a war zone to protect a person he has never met.
  • Accountability Journalism  
    This is what now passes for "news" at the Associated Press:
    When Bill Clinton took office in 1993, global warming was a slow-moving environmental problem that was easy to ignore. Now it is a ticking time bomb that President-elect Barack Obama can't avoid.

    USA Today has a smart op-ed piece today noting the similarity between global warmism and religious myths of apocalypse. There seems to be a basic human need to believe the end is nigh. Perhaps it somehow diverts us from contemplating our own inevitable demise.
    I am humbled by their flattery....
