Social-ist Security?


Here's link to an article from the Wall Street Journal: we begin to tackle the touchiest of touchy politicial subjects: social security![*applause*] [*howls of disapproval*]I know how you guys love a good argument. Well, we're bound to find one here.The Wall Street Journal is probably as conservative as the New York Times is liberal, so we should allow for

Kofi Says Full Disclosure Might Hurt UN


A few timely news stories: "Come Clean Kofi" - "Kofi Annan and the Insanity of International Law" - "The Senate vs. the U.N." - Chicago Sun Times Have you ever seen a movie or TV show where some smug, self-important foreigner gets away with heinous crimes by way of diplomatic immunity? Ever fumed at the idea of international representatives letting unpaid

The comments become even more distasteful when you look closely and see that the people look

The most venomous campaigns in history?


Hate Bush? Hate Kerry? Hate Nader(poor Ralph must be feeling left out...)? Hate politicians in general? When did politics get so disgusting? And worse, are we partly to blame? As a somewhat educated person with a healthy interest in government and politics, this election season has been bittersweet. Interest in the race for the White House is the highest it's been in recent memory. Pollsters
