For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. ---Ephesians 6:12

"The age of casual Catholicism is over; the age of heroic Catholicism has begun. We can no longer be Catholics by accident, but instead must be Catholics by CONVICTION." ---Fr. Terrence Henry TOR, Franciscan University of Steubenville

Thomas Sowell: "Do Facts Matter?"

Thomas Sowell has a new column out challenging the MSM to lay aside their Obama-worship (my words) and report the actual facts about the mortgage crisis, many of which indict both Obama and the Congressional Democrats.

Here is an excerpt:

[Abraham Lincoln said, "You can fool all the people some of the time and some of the people all the time, but you can't fool all the people all the time."

Unfortunately, the future of this country, as well as the fate of the Western world, depends on how many people can be fooled on election day, just a few weeks from now.

Right now, the polls indicate that a whole lot of the people are being fooled a whole lot of the time.

The current financial bailout crisis has propelled Barack Obama back into a substantial lead over John McCain-- which is astonishing in view of which man and which party has had the most to do with bringing on this crisis.

It raises the question: Do facts matter? Or is Obama's rhetoric and the media's spin enough to make facts irrelevant?]

The rest of this very insightful column can be found HERE. In it Mr. Sowell lists the names of the real culprits, several of whom you can see in action HERE in a You Tube video. Quite damning if only the sycophantic main stream media would shine the spot light in the right direction. But then their darling Obama might lose the election.

Dr. Sowell has a way of stripping away the excess and exposing what's important. The word must be getting around because his comments are being echoed.
