Correction: TV-Fox News-Kelly story

So, the AP gets a number somewhere, calls it with no answer, then reports, 'xxxxx refused to comment'.. It is a deliberate distortion, not a mistake. The AP was smearing the person in question, not doing honest journalism. This is a big problem with the MSM & their bias & support of progressive causes, the democratic party, & Obama. They are not merely a propaganda arm of progressive causes. All we need now is for govt to fund them to make it official.

I think it is fitting for him to 'waive' the american flag. That is what most leftists do on Independence day.

Wow, Ann. Great article. When dealing with the left, i am constantly amazed at how little ideas & thinking contribute to the conversation. All is emotion & passion. Facts & sound reasoning are not esteemed, but stirring up a sense of injustice & faux outrage. Your book & this summary article illustrate this. The current debate in america is not over ideas. Rational discourse is not the goal of the left, but only stirring up indignation & outrage. Read any leftist site.. from the seiu to any occupy group.. al sharpton or other leftist media pundits. they all try to excite their listeners or readers to hate the opposition. They do not reason or use logic to defend or promote ideas. Everything is presented to create a sense of emnity

Good article, John. It IS mind boggling how we as the rightful owners of the constitution can let this corruption continue. We need to elect mean, surly, bean counting nerds to office, rather than slick talking politicians. The electorate is failing the nation.. WE are letting charlatans & crooks take control of our country, & they have no love for freedom, only lining their pockets. We are in a new revolution for fiscal responsibility in govt, & we need to carry it on to the next election.

The Bad News Behind the Student Loan Debate

So true. We need real sunset laws that automatically end agencies & programs. Lawmakers should have to justify govt every so often, & keep them current & efficient. The main thing we need to decide is if we want to become a socialist/hybrid euro nanny state, or return to our more libertarian & personal responsibility roots.

The Biggest Scandal In U.S. History

America seems to be more polarized than ever in the last 150 yrs. Ideological differences are dividing us & the socialists are using whatever tactics they deem necessary to accomplish their agenda. The 2nd amendment is just one of the traditional american rights they want to end. We need to vote & become engaged in our government.. not assume politicians know what's best & roll over & take whatever they do. Good article, as usual, Ann. Clear, factual, & to the point. Truth is powerful, but it does not necessarily defeat a big lie. That will take determination & courage from all the citizens.

The Bad News Behind the Student Loan Debate

The worst part of the student loan debacle is the inability to ever escape from them.. they can become oppressive to a young person, & compound until they are too huge to ever get out from under. This 'new' loan is a return to dark ages lending practices, & the education predators target the inexperienced & naive to sell them to.. with 'helpful' education counselors telling them what a good deal they are. 4 yrs later they can't get a job with their BA in french poetry, & have to flip burgers & live with their parents. We are entering an education bubble.. just like the housing bubble.. plenty of cheap easy money for housing made an artificial bubble of demand, then popped. Same with edu.

Should Black People Tolerate This?

Good article from Dr Williams. IMO, it is the welfare state with it's emphasis on dependency that has caused most of the ethnic problems with crime. Too many people are idle, with no drive for survival other than gang turf. Ghettos have become liberal zoos where dependent pets are kept, not free americans. We need to wean our citizens off of govt dependency, & let them stand on their own as proud, free human beings, not social experiments. This is true with all races, but american blacks have been especially targeted by the left for their 'pet' project.
