Two hundred and thirty-three years ago, the men of the Second Continental Congress made a bold gesture as they sought to uncleave themselves from their ties with Great Britain.  A gesture intended to convey that they were serious about the war that was already raging on the American Continent.  A gesture intended to tell the […]

Ya know, I can’t help thinking on Billy Beck as I read Mark Levin this morning: I’ve been thinking this for a while so I might as well air it here. I honestly never thought we’d see such a thing in our country – not yet anyway – but I sense what’s occurring in this […]

David’s quote of Ed Morressy seems to me quite on the money. Consider the operative phrase of Ed’s very first line: “Stench of Desperation”. And what is driving this desperation, you may ask? Wasn’t Obama ahead? What explains this? Well, he used to be ahead, yes. As for what explains it, note with me, the […]

(From The Conservative Reader) Well, it took almost 3 months, but Congress finally passed the bill Saturday, on older version of which was  passed by the House in May, after some considerable back and forth between the Senate and the House.  The bill is HR 3221 (pdf), titled: “Housing and Economic Recovery Act of 2008?.

Sure, I get the picture, Billy. But consider that what you’re suggesting that we do is abdicate the voting process to these morons outright. That’s supposed to help? Speaking of voter ignorance, Boortz touches on this today, too. Ron Paul is living in his own little world. I’m glad he’ll never rise to the level […]
