Well, it seems like the Occupy is set to or already has finally gone all Chicago ’68…

by Skip October 26, 2011

Frankly, I’m not surprised that the major cities who have their own franchise of #OWS (Occupy Wall Street) are all trying to recreate the excesses of Woodstock with an overlay, now anyways, of Chicago ’68 where the hippies, Yippies, SDS, Bill Ayers’ Weathermen, and anti-drafters decided to give the Democrat Party a hard time at […]

Why I wish Sarah Palin was running for President

by Tim Condon October 26, 2011

Because Sarah Palin "gets it" with regard to the underlying problem our country and culture faces today: "It’s the political/government/ruling classes, stupid!" Look at it this way: Under socialism the government controls everything, okay? (The ruling classes deny it, but only the stupid, lazy, and historically uninformed believe that whopper.) But people who oppose the government controlling […]

by Tim Condon October 26, 2011

by Skip October 26, 2011

Notable Quote – Dr. Walter E. Williams

by Skip October 26, 2011

(Emphasis mine) The Occupy Wall Street demonstrators are demanding "people before profits" — as if profit motivation were the source of mankind’s troubles — when it’s often the absence of profit motivation that’s the true villain. First, let’s get both the definition and magnitude of profits out of the way. Profits represent the residual claim […]

Notable Quote – Michael Walsh

by Skip October 26, 2011

Here’s the thing: They’re the 1 percent, but we’re the 99 percent. Their wealth may be much more than ours, but 99 is a much bigger number than one. So we should just gang up and take their money. When one person takes the property of another, that’s tyranny, but when lots of people get […]
