“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

Roger Williams: The Donkey Whisperer

Roger Williams: The Donkey Whisperer

Here’s a great ad that comes to our attention thanks to Dr. Theo by way of The Hayride. Roger Williams is running for the U.S. House of Representatives from Texas, and he has a fine sense of humor. Can a “donkey whisperer” get through to the unruly and errant donkeys on Capitol Hill? Someone needs too…that, or put them out to pasture.

And The Lights of Reason All Went Out in Massachusetts

Many of you will remember the classic Bee Gees song, “(The Lights Went Out In) Massachusetts.” It was one of their early smash hits from the fall of 1967. That song immediately played in my mind when I read a December 12th email alert from Brian Camenker of Mass Resistance. He reported on what can only be described as an abominable piece of insanity.
