Writes Will Grigg: Cory Maye, a young father from Prentiss, Mississippi, was asleep in his home when it was invaded by a pack of armed intruders. Maye grabbed a firearm and fatally shot one of the marauders, unaware that the intruders were a SWAT team conducting a narcotics raid on the wrong address. Despite the [...]
I’m already dreading Democratic monopoly government. And yet, I have to laugh at the Republicans right now. After 40 years, you finally captured Congress in ’94. You worked with Clinton to expand the government. You covered up his crimes. Six years later, you got the presidency. For eight years now, you’ve had it all. You’ve [...]
At times like these, it is easy for those who love liberty to lose hope. Let us take account of the general situation. The administration and Congress have responded to the financial collapses on Wall Street with unprecedented power grabs and staggeringly humungous bailouts. The Fed is taking on a new role in directly propping [...]

But enough about Tony Snow. Anyone see the new Batman movie?
Listening to the Kaos archive. Listening to Scott respond to the lie that Bush’s failures have debunked the “free market.”
Yes, it’s frustrating. Maybe this will be a good thing about an Obama presidency: His fascism won’t be blamed on free enterprise. On the other hand, no matter how many Arabs he slaughters, the rightwing will say a “peaceful” foreign policy is leading to our problems, just as Bill Clinton’s “neglect” supposedly led to 9/11.
Another sad story of how you can take the troops out of the war, but not the war out of the troops.
So there’s the fascist faction, the communist faction, and Anthony Kennedy. Kennedy is overall a libertarian-leaning moderate. He agrees with the liberals on certain gay rights, and with the conservatives on the right of the Boy Scouts to exclude gays. He agrees with the left of habeas corpus and with the right on the Second [...]
