(Post title derived from Luke 6:42)

He criticizes Pres. Obama for several mistakes, including this one:
The presidential gaffe that struck me when I heard it was Barack Obama's reference to a military corps as a military "corpse." He is obviously a man who is used to sounding off about things he has paid little or no attention to in the past. His mispronunciation of a common military term was especially revealing to someone who was once in the Marine Corps, not Marine "corpse."
"One such translator was an American of Haitian descent, representative of the extraordinary work that our men and women in uniform do all around the world -- Navy Corpse-Man Christian Brossard." –mispronouncing "Corpsman" (the "ps" is silent) during a speech at the National Prayer Breakfast, Washington, D.C., Feb. 5, 2010 (The Corpsman's name is also Christopher, not Christian)

Sowell and Walter Williams-their small government libertarianism ends where Israel's interests begin. (Note his climactic reference to Iran getting nukes.) Here, Cynthia McKinney is a small government libertarian by comparison. Of course the Lobby moved her out of power.

I am really getting fed up with all the references to what would/could happen to poor little Israel. Let's just admit that the state of Israel has turned out to be a mistake.
