Alrighty then! I had some great responses and submissions to this very first edition. Whether you agree with some of the positions here or not – I encourage everyone to go check out these articles – and submit some yourselves.
Dana presents Parents’ constitutional liberty interest in education posted at Principled Discovery.
Jeffrey Stingerstein presents Holding the Wall Street Journal’s Feet to the Fire on the Economy posted at Disillusioned Words, saying, “Bobo, great to see that you started a carnival. I did too last month and will keep it going. You should submit, if you have anything you think would be good for it. It is called the “Carnival of the Future,” you can find it on this site.”
David Gross presents This time around, the anti-torture bloc gets wooed posted at The Picket Line, saying, “Last time the Democratic Party circus was in town, nobody mentioned the U.S. torture policy (even though Abu Ghraib was fresh in the news). Has anything changed this time around? Is there an anti-torture voting bloc worth reaching out to in this country?”
Babak presents How To Checkmate McCain’s VP Choice In Sarah Palin posted at Trader’s Narrative.
Tracee Sioux presents Top-Down v. Bottom-Up – Economics 101 posted at Blog Fabulous, saying, “A voter-friendly examination of top-down vs. bottom-up economic theories comparing Google and Wal-Mart. What’s really going to benefit YOUR economics?”
Ashok presents “Stupendous Fabrics:” Notes on Alexander Hamilton’s Federalist No. 9 posted at Rethink., saying, “Just a summary and some notes on a fairly important aspect of the ideas behind the Constitution.”
B.M. Garrett presents Sarah Palin a good pick? What do you think? posted at Blogciety, saying, “Who is Sarah Palin? Find out a little bit more about the newly picked Republican VP candidate and learn why she might not be such a good pick. We’d love to hear your opinions.”
DWSUWF presents Pondering Palin posted at Divided We Stand United We Fall, saying, “There is a tradition in this country of the “citizen legislator”. It is a simple concept that those that govern us should come from among us, and that we should not be governed by an elite class or professional politicians. The practical implementation of this idea is barely visible now, as our federal government has devolved to a primarily professional political class of lawyers in Washington. And yet, it is because of this very American appetite for leaders that step out from the middle class mainstream that politicians like Sarah Palin and Barack Obama can still emerge.”
Barbara Schreiber presents Sarah Palin: Lip-sticked Pit Bull posted at Britannica Blog, saying, “Interesting blog post about Sarah Palin’s very sarcastic speech at the Republican National Convention.”
