Iraq’s Descent Back into Civil War Makes the Case for American Energy Independence
Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.
-George Santayana (HT: Wikiquote)
America now faces a typical conundrum that has plagued all of our recent Presidents from Dwight D. Eisenhower all the way forward to President Barack Obama. We depend upon the Middle East for much of the energy that provides our motive power. As a result of this debilitating dependence upon people who hate us and practice a system of ethics and morals totally alien to our own, we are increasingly compromised and forced into courses of action that do not benefit our national commonweal. If we produce enough of our own energy, while curbing our domestic consumption, we can break this cycle of self-sabotage.

Romney’s Racism of Saying the Obvious
If you believe the propaganda our major networks label as news Mitt Romney personifies the Big, Bad White Devil. He denigrates the achievements of diverse foreign cultures. He picks the scabs off of centuries old grievances over racial injustice just because he gets off on making it bleed. So how does Mitt Romney work such horrible and iniquitous injustice? He egregiously tells the truth. Here | Read More »

McCain and Graham Claim to Speak for Conservatives on Libya

George W. Bush, Up to Evil Mischief Making Again!
After taking a quick rest from breaking up Al Gore’s marriage and from magically tricking President Obama into being an utterly incompetent failure, President Bush is now nefariously insinuating his way onto Facebook and Youtube.
