Big L

Last week, Harry Reid ...
You say "Who is Harry Reid?"
Oh, he is a United States Senator ("senator": mythical creature, half human, half horse) from the state so ill-favored by other senators it has been chosen to be a nuclear waste dump, a state that has gambling dens operating 24 hours a day, a state that has legalized prostitution -- he sort of represents that state.
Anyway, last week Harry Reid, speaking to a high school class, referred to George W. Bush as a "loser."
Maybe Mr. Reid has a different dictionary from any the rest of us use.
Loser? Dubya has a rich daddy, a pretty wife, and a big ranch; he was twice elected governor of a very large state ... and he defeated the presidential candidate supported by Harry Reid -- TWICE.
Is he a lousy president? Yes. At least as lousy a president as Harry Reid is a senator.
Is he a loser? Not as much as we are for having him as president ... and Harry Reid as a senator.

Terrifying lesson

As the God-fearing, morality-driven, pro-Constitution, limited-government Republicans continue to shred the Bill of Rights and increase the size and scope of government, any of us who still want to believe in individual rights, who know to fear the power of government, will want the following ammunition to share with those who have not yet learned the terrifying lesson.
Please go to
http://www.thetruthseeker.co.uk/article.asp?ID=114 for a stark reminder of what the governments of the United States and Great Britain did in 1945.
Go to
http://www.serendipity.li/hr.html#Keelhaul and to http://worldaffairsbrief.com/keytopics/Keelhaul.shtml for another look at the shameful past of the United States government.
Is it at all likely the Bush administration can be trusted with unlimited power? With all the secrets of our private and financial lives?
All liberty advocates know, and we must tell everyone else, that a national identification system can and likely will lead to just exactly what allowed the murder of millions, of tens of millions, in Europe during the last 100 years.
Supposedly the West won the Cold War. In truth, the ideas of the East are winning.
