Reynolds School District, on the […]

And the Occufails have a poster for that. Because of course, police should be beheaded. And you wondered why they were meeting in Tehran, of all places? We told you why, here. Fascism is very similar to communism, although where communism exerts naked authority, fascism covers it in a thin veneer of illusion: an iron fist inside […]

Loose The Dogs Of War

Loose The Dogs Of War

“Let us remember that if we suffer tamely a lawless attack upon our liberty, we encourage it.” – Samuel Adams Therein lies a pithy assessment, penned nearly240 years ago, that defines our situation today.
