Disgraced former IMF chief Dominique Strauss-Kahn attempted to lure two attractive hotel employees to his $3,000-a-night hotel suite -- and later put the moves on an Air France flight attendant following his alleged sexual assault on a maid, The Post has learned.
"What a nice ass!" he barked to the attendant, using the lewd French expression "Quel beau cul!" as she prepared the business-class cabin for takeoff last Saturday.
His catcall came just moments before Port Authority detectives hauled him off the plane, the French magazine Le Point reported.
So the ruling class loves Islam for insane reasons, but as mentioned earlier, the ruling class will be in considerable trouble if full-fledged Islam takes hold.
But what about ordinary Americans? This part is damned hard to think about and damned hard to write, but must be said.
Ordinary Americans don't want "Human Rights" or "Individual Liberty". They want safety, security and peace.
Ordinary Americans hate Islam for extremely rational reasons ... and yet ordinary Americans, unlike the ruling class, would have a better life under Islam, provided it adopts the softer non-Arab forms as in Indonesia, Turkey or pre-Khomeini Persia. (The proviso is critically important!)
An adapted Islam will give ordinary Americans a better family structure and a safer community. It will strongly encourage men to be sober and clean, and strongly encourage women to be modest and obedient. It will encourage families to bear lots of well-disciplined and well-loved children. It will discourage crime with public, quick and satisfying punishments.
Islam will give ordinary Americans a better commercial culture in which the human connection between buyer and seller matters more than the infinite increase of raw numbers; a commercial culture that treats bankers as low-status quasi-criminals, necessary evils but not the Masters Of The Universe.
Islam will give ordinary Americans a better government: a government that doesn't place the "human rights" of fags and fish above the safety and security of normal families. A government that doesn't build much, but also doesn't place infinite obstacles in your path if you want to start a business or run a farm or build an oil well or a power plant. Just pay the bribe and everything's OK.

All of the qualities listed in the above three paragraphs are fatal anathema to the ruling class, left and right. All of the qualities listed in the above three paragraphs would be a healing solace to ordinary Americans.
Polistra was named after the original townsite of Manhattan (the one in Kansas). When I was growing up in Manhattan, I spent a lot of time exploring by foot, bike, and car. I discovered the ruins of an old mill along Wildcat Creek, and decided (inaccurately) that it was the remains of the original site of Polistra. Accurate or not, I've always liked the name, with its echoes of Poland (an under-appreciated friend of freedom) and stars. ==== The title icon is explained here. ==== Switchover: This 2007 entry marks a sharp change in worldview from neocon to pure populist. ===== The long illustrated story of Polistra's Dream is a time-travel fable, attempting to answer the dangerous revision of New Deal history propagated by Amity Shlaes. The Dream has 8 episodes, linked in a chain from the first. This entry explains the Shlaes connection.
