Oh, now it can be told? Great. Thanks Carl Cameron, for sitting on this little nugget until it was too late to to anything about it. Back in March of 07 at the CPAC convention in DC several former Fred Thompson Congressional staffers told me Fred Thompson was thinking about a run. Some of his […]

Obama will unite America. Well, guess what? I don’t want America to be united. America has never been united in its history. […]

I said that the MSM is bound and determined to sink this economy by any means possible. I don’t think you have to look any farther than this sad excuse of a news story for proof. The tentacles of the foreclosure monster reach all the way into a Naperville animal shelter, where McKenzie and Rocket […]

If you were looking for a reason to wet yourself in fear, the New York Times is eager to give you one. They Saudis, they say, are going to buy up America! Dire times for everyone, right? Well, no. Let Don Surber put the numbers right. Oh my gosh, we’re being eaten alive by the […]
