You've got it backwards. Statistics consistently show that conservatives with lower incomes and wealth contribute significantly more money and time to charitable causes than liberals with higher income and wealth. Yet it always seems to be the liberals who are boasting how "compassionate" they are. Police, the military, and firemen also tend to be conservative. No surprise here. Let's look at who trends liberal -- self-absorbed entertainment industry, fat cat government employee union bosses, and tenure-protected university ivory tower college professors. Again, no surprise.

Sorry, I forgot to mention the liberal entitlement-voting welfare types voting to live off the toil of others.

Retired, four-star Army Gen. David Petraeus is paying the price for his hubris in much the same way as did the mythical figure Icarus who, like Petraeus, thought himself invincible but discovered otherwise when he flew too close to the sun before crashing back to earth. The now-retired CIA Director flew not too close to the sun, but rather ignored basic rules of secrecy, and ran afoul of the virtually limitless powers of surveillance we have placed in the hands of the FBI and other government agencies.

Like former New York Gov. Eliot Spitzer before him, Petraeus’ sexual peccadillos were unmasked...
