Detroit newspaper endorses Gary Johnson

Fri, 30 Sep 2016 14:59:48 +0000

(Paul Mirengoff) The Detroit News has been around since 1873. Until now, it has never endorsed a non-Republican for president (it endorsed no one in two of FDR’s races and sat out the Bush-Kerry contest in 2004).

(Scott Johnson) Ammo Grrrll is on strike, sort of, as she explains in THE NFL CAN GO TO HELL.

(Scott Johnson) Earlier this year I finished reading Lynne Olson’s Those Angry Days: Roosevelt, Lindbergh, and America’s Fight Over World War II, 1939-1941. I recommend the book unreservedly. There is so much intensely interesting history in the book. Much of the interest derives from the incredible cast of characters that populates the book. The Century Group, with which I was previously unfamiliar, alone supplies a panoply. The text runs over 450 pages

Coming Soon: A New Dark Age?

(Steven Hayward) Environmentalists always guffaw if you suggest they want us all to go back to living in caves, but the consequent logic of their practical positions certainly points that way. Consider these recent news stories: Sierra Club: No Gas, No Coal, No Nukes; Lansing Utility: No Lights, Then The Sierra Club has adopted a position that would effectively require all electricity in Michigan to come from renewable sources such as wind
