    Chicago Has Missed Out On A Great Opportunity

    A Chill Wind Is Blowing Through This Nation

    Originally Published at The Minority Report While I feel certain that actor Tim Robbins is equally as dissatisfied with the erosion of personal liberties under the Obama Administration as he was under the Bush Administration, he has not been afforded the opportunity to express those concerns before a national audience.

    Originally Published at The Minority Report The latest polls… First of all, let me interject the fact that I despise polls!
