Return To Liberty

Americans and the modern media take political affiliation too seriously. Are you a conservative, a liberal, a Democrat, a Republican, a libertarian, an independent? We are pre-occupied in this country with attaching our personal political sentiments to specific external groupings. Often times, we identify and validate our convictions based on those categories and we confine our thinking to the ... [More]

Why Should We Care?

Meaningless “‘I think it’s too much to hit one industry with,’ Green said in an interview.” Ridiculous. Sixteen billion is certainly not too much to charge to an industry that’s been setting record profits on the backs of middle class Americans. The idea that oil companies can’t afford to pay such a tax is preposterous. It’s insane. If you had a... [More]

Stop The Insanity!

Fat Police “The large, federally funded study found that to be true even if your loved ones lived far away. Social ties seemed to play a surprisingly strong role, even more than genes are known to do.” The critical phrase in that sentence: federally funded. It’s good to know that almost half of last year’s paycheck went to the study of fat contagion. There are many poin... [More]

The Wrong Decision

by Admin | Tags:
Caving In Unsurprisingly, the NFL and the Falcons are backing away from their original stance and caving in to public pressure with the usual procession of nonsense. Such as: Unecessary clarifications that water is wet for the purpose of grandstanding (as if the NFL might have some other opinion about dogfighting): “Let me make it very clear that the National Football League is very disapp...

Disgraceful “I can’t sleep, I can’t eat. If I lay down I can see the smoke,” she said. “And I think of my sister over and over again. What she must have went through on 9/11.” Translation: “I can’t sleep, I can’t eat. If I lay down I can see dollar signs dancing across the ceiling of a mansion I didn’t earn but expect New York taxpayer... [More]

Cindy Sheehan This woman and her “entourage” are constant entertainment. They’re like a traveling Elvis movie. Forget the House, we need her to run for President.


OpEd I know this is going to come as a shock to some people but editorials belong in … the editorial section. Here’s a clue: if you’re a reporter writing a news story and we know where you stand politically, you’re doing a poor job. It really is that simple. Witness: “Despite Bush’s suggestion that the bill is a must-pass measure that would pay for critical... [More]

The Right Decision

Vick Will PLay It looks like the Falcons and the NFL have made the right decision and are going to let Vick play until the legal process plays out. It’s a shame that they will face pressure from myopic special interest groups who are more concerned about animals than they are about people. What Vick and his cohorts allegedly did is horrifying. If he is found guilty, he should never take ... [More]

Outrageous “If you’re just going to wait for the judicial process, why even have a conduct policy?” – Wayne Pacelle, president of the Humane Society of the United States Thanks for pinpointing the problem with today’s society Wayne. The question is not why does the NFL have a conduct policy. The question is: why can’t we show more respect for the Sixth Amen... [More]

Shocking Report in Iraq

by Admin | Tags:
Seriously? NOTE – Yahoo! links seem to change. The original story regarded a House vote to set a deadline for troop removal. “The report makes clear that not even the White House can conclude there has been significant progress,” said House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif.” What, since April? You’re kidding. Can we put a similar timeline on when Congress is going to... [More]
