re: Why Was the Shahzad Complaint Made Public?

When there are headlines and news hosts who are, probably, honestly clueless as to why a naturalized Pakistani (who has spent quite a bit of time back home lately) might ever want to harm to Americans, I guess that’s the answer. It’s disheartening and it’s why I rather be focusing on very different views out there about how to deal with war, rights, and freedom (something to do with, yes, Liberty and Tyranny) than be too distracted about who’s linking where and saying what on Facebook.

Meanwhile, I think David Obey told us today that there’s little to no doubt in his mind that Democrats will be in the minority come January. It’s actually a good day on the long road to some “Conservative Victory.” We should keep working together on that.

The World Keeps Not Ending

He dreamed of socialism but feared socialists. He feared them because he knew them. I was in the sixth grade in 1984, but I ... Read More

‘White Women’ Becomes a Disparaging Term

Using “white men” as a putdown is no longer extreme enough for the Left. Now it is moving on to doing the same for “white women.” How rapidly this transpired. It was less than two years ago that the approximately 98.7 percent of white women working in media who were openly rooting for Hillary Clinton ... Read More
