    Greg Sargent Encourages Unions To Commit Violence Then Demands We Look At His Record on Palin and Arizona

    Washington Post’s Greg Sargent Demands Unions Get Violent. Union Goons Attack Fox Reporter.

    The Washington Post’s leftwing mouthpiece, Greg Sargent, who they ostensibly pay to be an objective reporter is on twitter demanding that unions in Wisconsin get violent to get their way. In what we can presume is unrelated to Greg Sargent’s call, a Fox News reporter was attacked by union thugs in Wisconsin. Once I pointed out on Twitter that Sargent was calling for unions to | Read More »

    Does Harry Reid Want A Government Shutdown?

    If the continuing resolution is not passed by this Friday, the government will shut down — not that this is a bad thing.

    It’s What Happens When an Unstoppable Force Hits a Malleable Object

    “Barack Obama and the Democrats have misread voter sentiment throughout the last two years.
