That is exactly what the founders intended – no wonder the left despises the document that places limits on the role of government and recognizes the divinely granted ...

Feed and Bleed: Fukushima Reactor Cooling Still Dicey

In a maneuver called “feed and bleed” Japanese engineers are performing a hail Mary style attempt at cooling the troubled Fukushima reactor that has at least partially melted down.

The Obama Doctrine Eerily Similar to Weather Euphemism

“If you don’t like the weather, wait, it’ll change” – a euphemism applied to various regions when discussing the weather. It also seems to apply to Obama’s method of handling difficult situations. Libya is the most striking example. While Libyan rebels are being beaten back by the militarily superior Ghadaffi forces, the only “action” Obama has taken is to ask ...

Liberals and their False Concept of a Free Lunch

Michael Moore is right. This is war. The patriots in this country, and indeed countless more throughout the world, are standing up for truth, liberty, and personal freedoms.
