Apologies for Unexpected Page Rendering

Viewers have informed me that, in Internet Explorer for Windows (at least one of the versions), the text for postings is centered, rather than left-justified.

They also tell me that this problem doesn’t occur in Opera, another Windows browser.

Nor does it occur on my Macintosh in Internet Explorer, Safari, OmniWeb, Firefox, or Camino.

If you notice other problems with rendering of the web pages, it will be helpful if you can email a description to me, together with what operating system and browser you are using and the versions thereof.

In any case, I am struggling to discover a CSS coding work-around to deal with Microsoft’s quirks.  In the meantime, please accept my apologies.

Al Gore and the Da Vinci Code

Ann Coulter is Right

Whatever you may think about her aggressive writing style, the main point in Ann Coulter’s new book “Godless: The Church of Liberalism” is dead on target.

The only surprising thing is that so many people are surprised to see liberalism as a religion.  American liberalism is simply our sect of the international religion of socialism, and liberal-socialists have openly proclaimed since the early 19th century that atheistic, materialistic socialism is a religion.

American Social Gospelists in the late 19th and early 20th centuries declared that Christianity had failed and was being displaced by socialism.

Liberal-socialism has all the elements of other religions: prophets, sacred writings, and a catechism of social justice that promises salvation and perfection (here on earth) of humanity.

For full details, see Socialism: Our Unconstitutionally Established National Religion.
