Aggravating interview This was a disappointing interview. Tim Russert is by no means the worst commentator out there and historically, he’s been mostly balanced in his treatment of guests.

I don’t care about your money Really, do you need any further explanation for why this woman should not come within 200 miles of the White House? BARTIROMO: WHERE DOES THAT $5 BILLION COME FROM?

Mills This is awesome stuff. I can’t even tell what she’s angry about. Deforestation? The wasting of cow’s milk? Environmental destruction? The real question is: does she know what she’s angry about? It’s clear that she thinks she does but judging by this tirade, does anyone seriously believe her? I say no.


Appearing as a foreword at the beginning of Cato’s Letters, Thomas Gordon here eloquently describes the fruits of a free conscience and an independent mind. It seems to me that this short excerpt is as good an example as any of the ultimate goal of what Thomas Jefferson would later describe in the Declaration of Independence as “the pursuit of happiness”.
