    Harry Reid Is Off His Meds

    Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) took full credit for preventing a world wide depression yesterday.  That is correct, a politician who is the higest ranking member of the United States Senate is taking credit for saving the world economy.  We can now change the term “God Complex” and add a new term into the lexicon of America — “Harry Reid Complex.” Reid seemed to be taking full credit for | Read More »

    “All Catholics Are Pedophiles” — The Democrats’ Closing Argument

    This is not the first time the Democrats have gone this route in this election season. This may, however, be the most desperate attempt.

    NPR Might Be In Trouble

    I hear that Congressman Joe Barton might just make NPR’s firing of Juan Williams an issue next year.Specifically, I’m told, “It is very likely that this will be a priority for Mr. Barton in the next Congress, should voters trust Republicans with their vote in November.”A hearing would probably focus on whether taxpayer money is being used to suppress free speech at NPR.Nice.

    Again I Say Fight!

    “If you will not fight for the right when you can easily win without bloodshed, if you will not fight when your victory will be sure and not too costly, you may come to the moment when you will have to fight with all the odds against you and only a small chance of survival.
