You Don’t Really Believe This Do You?

Bush to Outline Aid to Mortgage Holders Offering federal aid for strapped mortgage holders, President Bush is proposing to help hundreds of thousands of borrowers hard hit by the housing slump. Let me rephrase this headline so that it has a glimmer of truth to it: President Bush Wants to Make Sure Banks Get Paid […]

More To Love About Living In The United States

I love the anti-John Edwards post by Glen Dean. Perhaps Edwards should promise to provide all “poor” households with Tivo or DVR. Maybe he could promise every poor family a $50 gift card to Applebees. It really must be difficult to be a poverty pimping populist these days. I have to agree. This is the […]

Beer Drinking Terrorists On The Run

Yet another story that would be hilarious if it wasn’t true by way of TheLibertyPapers–this one about a group of hashers (runners/beer drinkers) who were suspected of terrorism after mapping out a course using colored flour in an IKEA parking lot. The full story on these felons was posted on MSNBC. Jack Bauer would be […]

Ron Paul Gets a Freebie From a Former Stripper

Strippers for Ron Paul. Michelle does a great job of explaining why anyone who cares about freedom (not only theirs, but other people’s as well) should have their interest peaked by the Paul campaign. All seriousness aside, it would have been interesting to hear her opinion on the idea of eliminating the Federal Reserve and […]

Democrat Has Some Great Advice For Republicans

Sharon Cobb offers some free advice that should be obvious to any thinking person, but obviously isn’t obvious to the GOP. Y’all have got to get back to being Barry Goldwater Republicans and stay out of personal lives of consenting adults instead of trying to make what consenting adults do a political issue for you. […]

Two More Things I Love About This Country

1. We still produce men as tough as Randy Couture, the UFC Heavyweight Champion Couture, 44, who defeated contender Gabriel Gonzaga by technical knockout in the third round, broke an ulna bone in his left forearm during the third round, said his assistant Valerie Haney. “It happened on [Gonzaga’s] high leg kick at Randy’s head,” […]

Big Hole in the Universe

From… The hole is nearly a billion light-years across. It is not a black hole, which is a small sphere of densely packed matter. Rather, this one is mostly devoid of stars, gas and other normal matter, and it’s also strangely empty of the mysterious “dark matter” that permeates the cosmos. Other space voids […]

Interesting Things From the Last Few Days

Gonzales Resigns Is he distancing himself from Bush, or is it the other way around? Republicans cheering for a Hillary win? Not only do a lot of people really dislike Hillary, but I’m not sure Bill wouldn’t sabotage the campaign himself. Can his ego really take her being President? Knox County Commission Keeps Lawsuit Settlement […]

Are the Dems Cracking Up?

I can’t help but cheer for controversy like this: With other states rushing to set early nominating contests, Florida offers the first test of the DNC’s resolve to restore order to the schedule it set last year. Michigan and New Hampshire also are considering moving up their voting, in violation of the party rules. … […]

10,000 Reasons Not To Have More Money

I came upon this story by way of Reason. I’m no fan of the ACLU, mostly because they are very selective about which civil liberties they choose to defend, but I have to be cheering for them in this case, where a truck driver was forced to turn over $23,700 for no other reason than […]
