You mean there is a time value of money? Really? Just when you think you’ve seen it all, look what they are doing in Arizona. A new state law forces employers to take more out of employee paychecks each week to fund the government. Are tax rates higher? No, the state tells taxpayers that they’ll [...]
Then make out a check to the totalitarian, government school district for $40. You owe them for retarding the learning process.
Take the “Women’s Equality Day Quiz,” and see if you can pass. If not, shame on you!
New words in Oxford’s tome: muppet, blog, egosurfing, 24/7, bad-hair day, dirty bomb, and, are you ready?…….”bada bing,” the Soprano term. “The Oxford University Press also publishes the 20-volume Oxford English Dictionary, which sells for $2,862 and is considered the benchmark for the language.” Does anyone want to donate that to KarenDeCoster.com?

A dude named Ian Wright writes up a review of LewRockwell.com, where he mentions me: One of LRC’s traditionalist Catholic writers assured me via private e-mail that the Church cannot teach authoritatively on “monetary” matters (the Church teaches that the [...]
Are there any individuals more pathetic than those who not only support the Patriot Act (and insist that those of us who don’t support it have never read it, or don’t really understand it — Bwaaahahaha!), but what about those who viciously attack the folks that don’t support it? Insane or what? Here’s another fruitball [...]
More in regards to yesterday’s post. LewRockwell.com’s Chris Manion wrote a send-up of WND’s pilfering of the material of other websites, and received some criticism from folks obviously not in tune to this issue. The story goes that WND has quite possibly been pilfering the words and articles of others, if you believe what you [...]
