House GOP Has Nothing to Offer Conservatives

Here’s the situation: You’re in a high–stakes negotiation with an untrustworthy opponent. The opposition has violated every agreement the two of you have made in the past.

Your weak and vacillating leadership can’t ...

We Were Sequestered Before It Was Cool

Beverly & Pack (CC)

Sure, that probably sounds insane. How in the world could Norway know anything about fighting terrorism, right? Maybe not. With the recent shooting in Colorado, there has been some mention of the terrorist in Norway that rocked that nation about a year ago.

TSA as air travel mafia

“You pay me a little, young lady, and I’ll make sure those nasty security guards keep their paws off you.” Ok, so the Transportation Safety Administration isn’t running around like one of Tony Soprano’s crew collecting protection fees, but they may as well be. Stumbled across this one at Moonbattery, and just couldn’t let it go. Selected travelers will soon ...
