“If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude than the animated contest of freedom, go from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains sit lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen!” – Samuel Adams

Second Anniversary: Remembering

March 31st will mark the second anniversary of the court ordered death of Terri Schiavo, the disabled Florida woman sentenced to death by starvation and dehydration.

Man Pays Alimony to a "Man"

Gov’t Hostility Toward Religion: Part II

From WorldNetDaily: A Christian woman is battling a California university and state social agency for terminating her internship because she shared her faith with co-workers during off-hours. I’ll ask again: how does sharing your faith with co-workers after hours constitute “Congress [making a] law respecting an establishment of religion?” Again, I believe this also constitutes […]

British Navy: Headed for "Coastal Defense Force" Status

This is scary. From Fred Thompson at National Review Online: Blair is threatening to escalate to a “different phase,” but Iran’s leadership knows something that most Americans don’t.

The Great Global Warming Swindle

Here’s a 75 minute video that Al Gore will find inconvenient. It shows man-made global warming for the sham it is. It was produced by Britain’s Channel 4 but hasn’t aired in the States yet. Thanks to Dr. Walter Williams and WorldNetDaily.
