Reader Opinion: “Protect” the Needy, NOT “Subsidize” the Needy!

Politicians often quote from the Constitution “ to provide for the … general Welfare” as justification for welfare spending.

WASN’T the METEORITE over the URALS in RUSSIA FASCINATING! WHY did the SOUND take some time to REACH the WINDOWS?

I was fascinated with the recent meteorite fall in Siberia (I always wanted to go to Siberia and if I remain a libertarian I might get my wish!) and look at these recent videos from Russia Today.  Here and Here! So, Sandy, why did the blast come so much later than the visual viewing?  In […]

VA AG Cuccinelli: Today is a dark day for Liberty

This is a dark day for the American people, the Constitution, and the rule of law.  This is a dark day for American liberty. This decision goes against the very principle that America has a federal government of limited powers; a principle that the Founding Fathers clearly wrote into the Constitution, the supreme law of […]

POLITICO: NEW RON PAUL AD! SANDY SAYS: AWESOME!

Here is the new Ron Paul ad according to Politico: MORE – THE NARRATOR’S SCRIPT: “It’s the story of a lost city, lost opportunity, lost hope. A story of failed policies, failed leadership.

EXPAND NCAA TOURNEY TO TAKE IN REG SEASON AND TOURNEY WINNER FOR EACH CONFERENCE!

Time for another sports rant!  (If Rick Santilli can do it, so can I!)  Real Clear Sports reports that the NCAA has no immediate plans to expand the Basketball tournament in the future from the present 68 teams. The NCAA is more concerned about making sure its first 68-team basketball tournament goes off without a […]

SOVEREIGNTY CRUSHED AGAIN – NO REFERENDUM ON EU WITHDRAWAL.

Once again, the leaders of the UK refused to even give the people any rights to control their own nation.  On the motion of MP Peter Bone to trigger an automatic in or out referendum on EU membership if any further sovereignty is transferred to Brussels, there were only 26 or 28 votes out of […]

An emerging National Leader?

Yesterday’s Richmond Times-Dispatch has a piece written by Jeff E. Schapiro declaring that Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli is the defacto leader of the Republican Party of Virginia, NOT Governor Bob McDonnell. I tend to agree with this position as Ken has been leading the charge on issues like Obamacare, Cap & Trade, illegal immigration and other […]

Sarah Palin: Response to the President's Health Care Speech

After all the rhetoric is put aside, one principle ran through President Obama’s speech tonight: that increased government involvement in health care can solve its problems. Many Americans fundamentally disagree with this idea. We know from long experience that the creation of a massive new bureaucracy will not provide us with “more stability and security,” […]
