I wholeheartedly endorse everything Frank J. Fleming talks about in this article, 5 Rules for Victory in the Culture War.

The SunDome is getting torn down for that paragon of modern American culture, a shopping center.  No, really.

Mike Muir saw this one coming a long, long time ago. “On Meet the Press Sunday, New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg indicated that Americans should get used to the idea of having their freedom’s limited by government, particularly when their actions affect themselves or others. “I do think there are certain times we should • Read More »

I actually enjoy reading The New Republic because they’re one of the few lefty sites out there that respects intellectual integrity. I may not (and usually don’t) agree with what they say, but they usually come to their conclusions by way of logic and not polemics.  And they’re certainly spot-on with their takedown of John • Read More »
