close, but his definition is more appropriate for the neoconservative (ex liberal) such as
himself, rather than for the traditional conservative. Edmund Burke, the father of modern
conservatism, never had to be mugged by reality, for from his earliest age, he knew what
Krypton, n. inert gas on planet earth, but the bane of Superman.
La Reconquista, n. The radical Mexicans’ hope to take over America. It seems to me that,
without adequate protection of our southern border, which we certainly do not have at
present, they are close to success. Further, witness the degenerate spectacle of Hispanic
students in a California high school raising the Mexican flag over our own, with very
little or no protest from local school authorities.
And more: The vaunted Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals (the most overridden in the
country) has chosen to strike down some of Arizona’s recent immigration law, much to

the exercise. He then deems such squeamishness a human failing, evidently forgetting all
the while that one should expect humans to be more fastidious than animals. Else, why
invent the toilet?
Lake Ponchartrain, n. In regard to Katrina and New Orleans, why in the world would any
people not bereft of their sanity build a city between that lake and the mighty
Mississippi? Dikes have been known to give way. Further than that, why would any
thinking person believe that the main fault for the devastation lies with the Bush
