It is human nature to want to belong to a group, either left or right. But it is also our job to fight against this impulse and learn to work with each other.

We bet that even those with a modicum of intelligence are at least beginning to realize now that maybe George Bush and Dick Cheney weren’t so bad after all.

When the Koch brothers are criticized, a defender very often will point a finger at George Soros – as if tossing dirt onto Soros will clean up the Kochs.

Have you ever wondered why so many liberals demonize Sarah Palin? Because they’re afraid of truth, good people.

The reality of the political left and how much they value education can be seen on display in New York, as the liberals go in and shut down the best-performing schools. Education gets in the way of their power-seeking agenda. Hypocrites.

Whatever happened to the Corvair made by GM?
