The Final Five: October 13, 2011

The Final Five: Bedtime Stories for Conservatives
October 13, 2011

Tonight's Crazy Story
If you thought the story about a man throwing a hot dog at Tiger Woods was crazy, just wait until you hear his reasons for attempting this action.

Tonight's Final Five:

Ann Coulter writes that one good effect of the "Occupy Wall Street" protests is that the protesters ended their "Occupy Our Mother's Basements" initiative. While their location may have changed, their parasitic ways of living on other's money has not.

While Obama has been quick to point out persecution of Muslims, he has been slow to point out the persecution of Christians by the Muslims. A Washington Times editorial explains why Christians have little reason to support the President.

Taking a break...
To laugh a little
"President Obama had beer with four unemployed construction workers. And Obama asked the guys what was it like to lose their jobs, and they were like, “Oh, you’ll see."
-Jimmy Fallon, 10/12/11

Now Back to The Final Five

Obama was elected with zealous support from the Democratic base, but that support has faded during his term. National Review Online's Victor Davis Hanson boils the fading support down to two factors: war and Wall Street.

Commentary Magazine's Peter Wehner analyzes the growing unity in the country. While the tea party and the Wall Street protesters may disagree on almost everything, both appear to have lost faith in our government and its leaders.

Peter Wallison explains for the Wall Street Journal why the Occupy Wall Street protesters have good reason to be angry, but they need to direct their anger at the people truly responsible for the problems.

Tomorrow in History: October 14
October 14, 1884 - Inventor George Eastman receives a patent for his new paper-strip photographic film.

Food For Thought - A Bedtime Snack
"Before a standing army can rule, the people must be disarmed; as they are in almost every kingdom of Europe. The supreme power in America cannot enforce unjust laws by the sword; because the whole body of the people are armed, and constitute a force superior to any band of regular troops that can be, on any pretence, raised in the United States."
-Noah Webster
