This is a classic DL statement, "I was surprised to see that the administration is apparentlyRead More notifying hedge funds what is happening in the negotiations." I think most of your supporters skip right over the word "apparently" because they don't like this administration and they want to believe that it's doing illegal things. If you truly wanted simply a discussion on principle, you'd give hypothetical situations. But you want to have your cake and eat it too. It is a good strategy for getting read. I'll definitely give you that.

Lib certainly has your strategy nailed, Don. It's the same kind of crap Fox News pulls every day.Read More Throw out the red meat with a headline like "Insider Trading?" Throw more blood in the water with your first sentence, "Is the Obama administration picking and choosing hedge funds for success?" Your Tighty Righty readers don't even see the question marks when the answers as supported by the facts are "no" and "no."

It would certainly seem so! I always laugh at Hillary's record of earning a personal $85,000 in aRead More couple days in a managed live cattle futures trading account way back in their Arkansas days. Some are politicians to give back, out of a sense of duty. Others like the Clintons and Obamas strike me as those who take and justify much of it in the name of entitlement and an inflated worth for what they do "to" the country.

Liberaltarian writes he disagrees "that progressives in charge of education are teaching ourRead More children a false history". I would say omission is teaching false history. In regard to teacher unions how many students are exposed to FDRs position on public unions? How many texts have his famous quote? I'm going to guess zero. I hope I'm wrong.

Personally I'm opposed to common core and the federal Department of Education. It's inefficient. ItRead More wastes money, ties politics to spending. Imagine dictating courses like drum beating to inner city 3rd graders. Independent school districts are the right level of government for education. That's why I opposed the bullying bill. It takes authority away from the ISD and pushed it up stream to the Governor. The only thing worse would be if it were pushed to Washington. Have you seen the size of the Education building in Washington DC? That could pay for a lot of library books!

You could also buy a lot of library books for the $20 Million that new Bullying Bill will cost theRead More local school districts. The vast majority of that expenditure is just to insure gay students don't suffer stress so it's become necessary to let educators teach kids what kind of attitudes about sex they need to develop behind parents backs. What an agenda those liberals have! They don't care what it costs as long as they get the world they want. You'd think they were spending somebody elses's money.

You do the most to reduce "overlap" by making government do less. Rather than try toRead More reduce government to doing things only once, let's try to get it out of businesses where it does not belong, and make sure it does each absolutely necessary thing at most once.

Our founders warned us. The price of liberty is eternal vigilance. Look at the sacrifices that theyRead More made. Ours pale by comparison.
Keith O. April 18, 2014 at 09:38 pm
Donald, if you're referring to the sacrifices detailed in the oft-circulated essay, variously calledRead More "The Price They Paid" or "Our Nation's First True Patriots," (including being captured by the British, tortured and killed) it's basically a bunch of BS. Historians including Joseph J. Ellis have noted the "distinction between history as experienced and history as remembered." John Adams himself spoke to the propaganda promoted soon after the Revolutionary War that distorted events and created heroes to fit a dramatic formula. The boring, real-life biographies of the founders have been repeatedly embellished over the years with exaggeration and pure fiction to make for a better story, when what most of them went through was what everyone went through on the American side during the war.
