Peter Robinson interviews Fresno State Classicist Bruce Thornton about his new book Decline and Fall: Europe's Slow Suicide. In his new book, Decline and Fall: Europes Slow Motion Suicide, Bruce Thornton asserts that Europe has turned its back on the Western tradition to which it owes its greatness. It has abandoned pride in the nation, discarded traditional Christianity, and, in so doing, is without unifying values, ideals, and beliefs. But if Europe is still democratic, and if it still embraces the free market, why should anyone care that Judaeo-Christian religious beliefs are slipping away. The answer lies in the coinciding rise of radical Islam.
Francis M ► NATIONAL ARTIST Francis Magalona supporters start drive to nominate the Master Rapper for National Artist of the Philippines Startalk, March 14, 2009 from GMA-7 ► ¢2rax... I'm not that optimistic the committee in charge of awarding this title will go out of its conventional way to recognize a non-classical type... But who knows, Francis M is a unique mix of anti-establishment aura and hyper-nationalism. His lyricism "cuts" as well as Lino Brocka's direction.. And his medium "beats" people up to their senses like Fernando Poe Jr.'s rapid punching. 3, 6 or even 12 years from now, I'll be patient. Emotions subside but the Master Rapper's legacy lives on..I hope Kiko will get this ultimate validation. ► FRANCIS M BLOG / MULTIPLY ► For full episodes of shows, subscribe to GMA Pinoy TV ► Kapusong Totoo GMA Kapuso Foundation
United We Stand together we FALL into the LIES perpetuated by the.MEDIA about 9/11 "United We Stand." "We Will Never Forget." Sadly, nine years after 9/11, we neither stand united nor care enough to remember. Nine years after 9/11 our 9/11 first responders are still denied the critical medical care they need -- in plain sight -- with nary a peep from a war-weary populace still sporting their fading 9/11 "We Will Never Forget" car magnets on their SUVs. And nine years after 9/11 even the most fundamental questions regarding the events of that day, as well as the most fundamental questions associated with the myriad lies and tragic events in the days that followed, remain to this day unanswered. The events of 9/11 were, as the neo-conservative think tank "Project For The New American Century" predicted (and seemingly called for), in its September 2000 report "Rebuilding America's Defenses" -- a "New Pearl Harbor": "Further, the process of transformation, even if it brings revolutionary change, is likely to be a long one, absent some catastrophic and catalyzing event----like a new Pearl Harbor" And, like the original Pearl Harbor, transformation is indeed what we got. A short nine months after the neo-conservatives took possession of the White House, a "New Pearl Harbor" shocked and awed the world and transformed the psyche of the American public. But instead of building a new society unified in its resolve to reinvent itself as a better nation, with better policies, with a superior moral compass capable of leading the world through example, the neo ...

Dogfights: P-51: Richard Candelaria Clip from History Channel's great show Dogfights, from the P-51 episode from season 2. Richard Candelaria is a stud, & in this clip we see why. In effect, this is "an artist's rendition" of events. Try not to get your panties in a bunch over it. Also, this is more of a "war story" than a history lesson. If you can't tell the difference between a war story and propaganda, or you don't understand how television works, then don't blame this show, "America", right wing war machines, hypernationalist ferver, or the military industrial complex for your own ignorance & cognitive capabilities. Be sure to watch the History Channel & don't forget you can buy the complete episode on DVD @
