I'm a liberal, be warned.... Yes, a real liberal pacifist feminist tree-hugging hippie chick. I post here because Redstate is a very fine message board with intelligent posters and great moderators.

He very clearly pointed out, and I agree with him, that the root of this crisis is the mortgage industry. But while the American Dream to | Read More »

    Protesters Behaving Badly

    I hope that you are not upset at a liberal deciding to post a diary entry here.
