Here are twelve comical but true resolutions that every liberal should make for 2013.
We wish each other "peace on earth." Wishing is not enough. We must act on this wish by promoting capitalism on earth.
Superheroes often live double lives. But so do super-villains. For four years, the Obama administration has been living a double-life regarding drones.
