“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

A Top Spammer Arrested

I read the other day where one of the top spammers was arrested. It was stated that now that he was apprehended we ought to see less spam. I must have one of the other top spammers ruling my mailbox. One that has taken over the arrested one’s turf, because I have been getting even […]

An Energy Blast from the Past

Just heard a good commercial on the radio. It’s from a group called “The People of America’s Oil and Natural Gas Industry.” It’s about energy and a return to the nostalgia of the 1970s and the heyday of mood rings, disco, bad hair, long lines at the gas station (and America’s greatest president: Jimmy Carter).

Everybody Needs a Purpose

The headline from yesterday’s Madison Daily Leader: “Paula Abdul says she found her purpose in life when she became a judge on ‘American Idol’” Where ever she was before getting this gig on American Idol…I feel really bad for her. In fact…I still do.

Congressional "Reality Show"–Bread and Circuses…Again

Scates If the only news you get is from the networks or the newspaper, you may think that the next great moment in U.S. history will be the passage of the Kennedy/McCain immigration bill, or some “compromise” version of it.

Hard to Accept What We Can’t Dismiss

GUEST COLUMN By Ralph Hatcher, M.D.Mr. Ellis’ piece on the opening of the Creation Museum this week is a well-stated indictment of the pro-Darwin scientists who find themselves tangled in their “just so” stories and dismissal of the mountain of evidence that is contrary to their pet theories.
