The latest Rasmussen Poll indicates that 79% of Americans are convinced that “their” government is totally unresponsive to them, their concerns, and their needs
the gap “may be as big today as the gap between the colonies and England during the 18th century.”
Joseph Stack was sane. Like Palestinians. A suicide attack was the only weapon left to him
“Terrorist” is a term the government reserves for Muslims Israel does to Palestinians and the U.S. government does to Muslim countries

Terry Hoskins bulldozed his house rather than allow a bank to foreclose on it. online survey, 79 percent of respondents agreed with Hoskins’ action

President Obama has obliged him by creating a “deficit commission.”
The “deficit commission” will be used to gut Social Security, just as the private insurance health plan is paid for by cutting $500 billion out of Medicare.
