Oy! Where do I start!!??

Was watching my tivo'd Hannity Show on the Faux News network this evening and it caused me to have to write something about delusional minds that are at Faux News these days.

Republican Strategy of the 80's

Thomm mentioned an article in the WSJ regarding what the Republicans had to do to gain power again. Spend, cut taxes and raise the deficet then run on budget and fiscal conservatism when the Dems have to pay down debt and raise taxes. Where is this article?

Bumper Stickers - Simple and Direct

Get better at this Progressives. SUPPORT OUR TROOPS - PAY YOUR TAXES



A four letter word to replace "free" - is "FAIR"

free trade? how about FAIR trade?

This is America... can we do this? - Thom repeatedly makes the astute point that "free trade" is a brainwash -

and it's SO easy to sell it to Americans - the average "Joe" equates it with "freedom". Easy sale. Our dads died in combat to protect our freedom as Americans. but what is freedom?

It was really found it in a Redwood City bar by a Gizmodo reporter.

Good people...
