Yes, Big Brother is Watching You

With the revelation that the CIA's domestic spying program is bigger than we ever thought, it is clear that there are a lot of very busy people, poking around in our daily business.

Of Liberals, Obama, and the Pope

When Palin and Plato collide, the results aren't pretty.

Palin’s Magic Math Debunked

Remember how Bailin' Palin was quittin' to save Alaskans money from all the "Political operatives (who) descended on Alaska" and charged all those mean, pesky ethics complaints against Her Royal Self?
