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

Two Articles Well Worth Your Read

Irwin Stelzer, the director of economic policy studies at the Hudson Institute (a think tank with another notable named Robert Bork), has written a wonderful piece for the Times UK Online called The Four-Pronged Attack On Our Future Prosperity. He lists them as energy policy, health care policy, trade-union resurgence, and fiscal madness. See what else he has to say.

From Kimberley Strassel, an article in the WSJ called The Climate Change Climate Change in which she points out the counter trends against global warming hysteria legislation in the Australian Senate.

A snippet:

[Among the many reasons President Barack Obama and the Democratic majority are so intent on quickly jamming a cap-and-trade system through Congress is because the global warming tide is again shifting. It turns out Al Gore and the United Nations (with an assist from the media), did a little too vociferous a job smearing anyone who disagreed with them as "deniers." The backlash has brought the scientific debate roaring back to life in Australia, Europe, Japan and even, if less reported, the U.S.]

A ray of hope for change? It appears it will get in motion here before we can stop it.
