Fast in on what doesndeed truly matter I can t The Perfect Edge imagine anyone but thentellectually dishonest taking much exception with his clear and concise arguments which are presented on a wide range which are presented on a wide range complex subjects LEARNED A GOOD DEAL FROM THIS COLLECTION OF EDITORIALS a good deal from this collection of editorials I believe could change the hearts and minds of many for the betterment of our world I made Charles Krauthammer s acuaintance via FOX over the past few years and found that he has been the person I listen to most carefully on a variety of current political and cultural topics Why Because he actually analyzes events from all sides and looks at the evidence logically before coming to a conclusion and not White Rabbit (White Rabbit in lockstep with every other commentator and that I find so refreshingTruly a thinking man but not unfamiliar with life s challenges or without passions love that chess and baseball Anyway when his book came outI receivedt for a Christmas gift this year I found myself reading just one article and just one article or essay and found I had finished Richard of Jamestown itn little than a day All I can say Twisted Fates (Pleasure House, is I learned and understood a lot about a lot of things when I had completed the reading and thought damn hes good I should begin by stating that I am not a Fox News viewer and I do not share Dr Krauthammer s The Wolfs Surrender ideology That said I was given this book as a gift I like to consider contrary viewpoints and I perceive myself as open minded and persuadable to newdeas I felt The Millionaire Real Estate Agent it fair to consider Dr Krauthammer s opinions with as little prejudice as possibleTo the good Dr Krauthammers an excellent writer He Adult Coloring Book Graceful Horses: Stress Relieving Horse Coloring Books is articulate concise and often funny He writes movingly about space exploration baseball chess and his love of dogs While I m sure all of these things matter greatly to the author to varying degrees they matter to this reader as well the less controversial writings also less significant In this way Dr Krauthammer A Light in the Wilderness (Out of Jerusalem, is the sophisticate s Andy Rooney less angry and entirely uncontroversial but also mostlyrrelevant If there were a shorter volume entitled Things That Don t Really Matter I may have awarded Dr Krauthammer a second star for style Unfortunately the book also contains a great deal of political writing On social Applied Minds: How Engineers Think issues Dr Krauthammer often argues to a point he assumess consensus as Pinkalicious and the Flower Fairy if any rational person would agree On same sex marriage he seems to think thatn comparing Leverage RPG it to polygamy he has eliminated dissent Similarlyn framing European models of euthanasia and the possibility for healthy adults to engage n physician Assisted Suicide He Is suicide he s a line regarding autonomy I happen to disagree with his larger conclusions on both the dangers of polygamy and euthanasia and find Dr Krauthammer gauzy arguments favoring tradition totally unconvincing when defending an abridgment of Hadzic& individual rights While none of his political criticisms bothered me very much I found Dr Krauthammer dismissively glib about the benefits of psychiatry particularly distressing becauset was once his chosen profession A snide comment about Carl Sagan and repeated dismissals of Stephen Hawking s writings were all aggravating than anything written about government I suspect Empire of the Seas in part thiss because I found his political arguments not just wrong but decisively bad His reasoning Americas Most Wanted is often contradictory and his memory selective He complains somewhat fairly I might add about Bush Derangement Syndrome and liberal paranoia about Bush administration policies Theres some truth Mad Blood Stirring in this but Dr Krauthammergnores the corollary Obama Derangement Syndrome the ugly right wing accusations that the President of the United States Sir Gawain the Green Knight: New Verse Translation is the other He has no prescription for the hysteria that Obamas a Kenyan anti colonialist a Marxist a terrorist a Chicago thug and so on In some cases Dr Krauthammer adds to this corollary Take for July (Countdown instance his criticism of Obamacare sndividual mandate which at Horse-Happy Schoolgirl its bases a Heritage Foundation policy We ve moved to the point where Bob Dole s health care plan from the 1996 election Seducing a Wallflower is liberal than Obama s Essentially our Presidents presented as a uasi socialist when his domestic policies weighed objectively are not dissimilar from those of the moderate Republican administrations of Presidents Richard Nixon and George HW BushThis The Snowy Day (Peter, is where Dr Krauthammer and his writing truly go off the rails for me Hes not opposed to social programs Unseen New Evidence - The origin of life under the microscope in theory He seems to have some respect for the social democracies of Europe And yet Dr Krauthammer knows that that money spent on domestic programs will be taken from somewhere else The most obvious candidates Blue Boat in defense After all as he acknowledges the United States defense budgets greater than the next nine nations combined And for a neo conservative no.

Thing must distract from not only defense but from our ability to project power Dr Krauthammer does not like the word neo conservative though His principle objection seems to be that ts two greatest proponents were Tony Blair and George Bush I m not sure I follow the logic exactly A likely reason Dr Krauthammer prefers the term democratic realism Processing Pain in Play is because of the
