The shameless gall of the Current Marxist Administration

Posted: 06 Jul 2010 08:30 PM PDT

Here. I've always called a spade, a spade and there's no reason for me to change now. I'm amazed and appalled at the lack of honesty of the current administration. Once more, The Usurper ran on the basis of uniting the country; ending corruption; ending patronage; working together with the opposition; etc., etc. Can anyone show me examples of his keeping any of those promises? I sure would be very grateful. About one and one half years latter, the country is more divided th… ...

Hard times for Ill., but not for governor's staff

Posted: 06 Jul 2010 06:07 PM PDT

Pat Quinn has handed out raises—some of more than 20 percent—to his staff while proclaiming a message of "shared sacrifice" and planning spending cuts of $1.4 billion because the state is awash in debt. The Democrat has given 43 salary increases averaging 11.4 percent to 35 staffers in the past 15 months, according to an Associated Press analysis of records obtained under the Freedom of Information Act.

Independence and the Right to Private Property

Posted: 06 Jul 2010 05:42 PM PDT

Joseph C. Phillips The right to private property was one of the central issues involved in the American Revolution. The colonists' cries of "taxation without representation" were but protests of what they saw as an unjust taking of private property. The Declaration of Independence charges the King of England with engaging in 10 acts of abuse, of which half are offenses against private property. Most significantly, the Declaration lists the pursuit of happiness as one of man's primary...

Posted: 06 Jul 2010 05:13 PM PDT

Dennis Prager Here's a challenge: Can you name one difference between what the media refer to as "world opinion" and Left-wing opinion? Take all the time you need. But no matter how much time you take, you probably won't come up with any examples. Here are examples of major world issues and what is deemed "world opinion." They happen to all be Leftist views as well. -- hatred of President George W. Bush and admiration of President Barack Obama -- Manmade carbon emissions lead to...

by Jim Kouri On the day following the holiday weekend on which Americans celebrated their nation's independence from a foreign country, Attorney General Eric Holder's Justice Department filed its lawsuit against the State of Arizona for daring to pass a law that protects innocent people from criminal aliens, terrorists and other malefactors who violate U.S. immigration laws and live in Arizona illegally.

In Defense of Free Association

Posted: 06 Jul 2010 05:00 PM PDT

A conservative writer, publishing on a conservative website, defending Helen Thomas, whose long career in the Washington press corps came to symb…

America's Great Religious Document

Posted: 06 Jul 2010 05:00 PM PDT

Phyllis Schlafly Tea Parties and other spontaneous groups of activists are bringing a new appreciation of the U.S. Constitution to grassroots America, so this Fourth of July would be a good occasion to make sure that they also appreciate our other essential founding document, the Declaration of Independence.
