AZ – Where They Desecrate the Flag to Support Illegals

Desecrated Flag

I am not going to fly off on a tirade about this behavior. It does no good anyway. The people involved in these sorts of activities just take words against them, and spin the complaints so that the people pointing out how wrong they are end up looking like the bad guys. Instead, I am going to tell you all ...

‘Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house, Not a Senator was stirring, not even a mouse. The bills were stacked on the desks with care, In hopes that the rich would finally pay their fair share.   The Obamas were nestled all snug in their beds, While visions of vacations danced in their heads.

Occupy Protestors Use Kids As Human Barricades In D.C.

I have no idea why occupy protestors have found their approval ratings dropping with mainstream Americans.  Maybe videos like this can shed light… What do you guys think?  Is this how a “protest” should be done?  Is it ever okay to use kids as human barricades?  And how many stories like this will it take before the mainstream media ends ...

OWS Manifesto: Declaration of the Occupation of NYC

Recently I posted a piece on the difference between tea party rallies and the Occupy Wall Street protesters.  Perhaps annoyed by the tone of my piece, an anonymous commenter tipped me off to the list of "demands" of the OWS group in order to prove that the movement is purposeful and coherent. As it turns out, the protesters have managed ...

Occupy Wall Street vs.Tea Party: Who'd Ya Rather?

The Occupy Wall Street protests continue as over 700 ne’er-do-wells were arrested Saturday on New York’s Brooklyn Bridge.  As the mainstream media continues its romantic coverage of the vague protests, one is reminded of all the outlandish and patently false characterizations of Tea Party protests.  Tea Party events have been labeled racist, violent, frightening and angry by the MSM and ...

Civil Rights Protests/Union Protests: Apples and Oranges!

I read an article today about a black man who marched for civil rights in the days of Martin Luther King.
