A 1925 Quote on U.S. Economy

September 19, 2008

Edward R. Pease, member of the Fabian Society, writing in 1925: “The United States in the [eighteen-]seventies was not yet dominated by trusts and controlled by millionaires.  Indeed even now that domination and control, dangerous and disastrous as it often is, could not withstand for a moment any widespread uprising of the popular will.”  (History […]

Clinton Politics

April 4, 2008

This is classic Clinton. Listen to how she responds to a reporter’s question about her statement to Bill Richardson, “Obama can’t win.” “You know we have been going back and forth in this campaign about who said what to whom and let me say this about that.

Just a Case Study

February 11, 2008

I post this for no other reason than that it’s a case study in bad reporting, empty rhetoric, and overall douchebaggery (am I allowed to say that?). It takes either deliberate ignorance or complete idiocy to get this much wrong in one small report on Ron Paul: Having failed to gain any traction in his […]

Blogging Ron Paul All Week

December 12, 2007

This Sunday is Tea Party 07, the next mass donation day for Ron Paul. In light of this, I’ll be blogging Ron Paul all week (this will also give my Reformed friends a nice break from my bashing of our theology).  I’ve already started with a couple questions about Ron Paul and 9/11, and a […]
