John Stossel comes out against the stimulus plan. You know, John. Maybe you could have written this a couple of weeks ago when it might have mattered. The blog and radio silence on this issue enraged me. My feeling was that everyone knew it was a bad idea … but everyone wanted those checks.

Morrisey on Clinton’s bad history with buying the New York election by pardoning the FALN terrorists. This is something that will be huge if Hillary gets the nomination.
There’s been a lot of noise about the mother who tried to discipline her kid with public humiliation. The thing I can’t stand about these articles are all the “experts” who tell us the best way to raise a child. Note to experts: children are not lab rats, they are individuals. Different parents need different tools. One size fits all discipline is a horrid, horrid idea. Shut the fuck up.

Those FEMA trailers? Poisonous.Oh, this gets better with every passing day.
