Doers v. Talkers

Posted by  ▪  November 18, 2011
Makes perfect sense.  Both car owners believe in freedom for all, but only one is willing to do something about it. Thanks to reader Joel who writes: Seen today as I walked to my car in the parking lot in Westlake Village (Ca). Of course, just next to it on the bumper’s left side…

Guardians of conservatism unite against flip-flopper Newt

Posted by  ▪  November 17, 2011
Thank you Jennifer, Michael, Gene, Quin, Ann, and others, for telling us that Newt Gingrich is unacceptable as a nominee because he took some positions in the past that were not conservative. I don’t know where we’d end up without you. At least we have one candidate whose record is clean: Just before Mitt Romney…

Time to go negative?

Posted by  ▪  November 17, 2011
When I saw this Michelle Bachmann ad my first thought was, “Don’t go there, Michele, this will not help you.”  But on second thought, why not? I have been in favor of niceness so far, but I wondering whether it’s gone on long enough.  Why shouldn’t the candidates face the types of challenges…

Will we ever get around to vetting Mitt Romney?

Posted by  ▪  November 17, 2011
Newt Gingrich appeared on the Mark Levin Show last night to address a variety of issues.  Levin has been pretty harsh towards Newt at times in the past. Thanks to The Right Scoop for the audio: I find it very interesting that while Gingrich is more than willing to go on shows where he…

Ann Coulter: Forget everything I ever said about Romney losing to Obama

Posted by  ▪  November 16, 2011
Ann Coulter is going after Newt Gingrich now because Newt has not been sufficiently consistent over the years, and because Romney is inevitable and will beat Obama: The mainstream media keep pushing alternatives to Mitt Romney not only because they are terrified of running against him, but also because they want to…

The most articulate advocate of freedom.

Posted by  ▪  November 16, 2011
I’m not one for commemorating anniversaries and dates. And, even if I was, I can’t attach a date to most of my important revelations and discoveries. That being said, I do have an exception. Milton Friedman died exactly five years ago today. I remember this well because I had never heard of him…
