Mandatory Reading: “Collectivism and the Presumption of Guilt”

by Smitty Go over and read this excellent piece by Hayward in full. A taste (emphasis original): This presumption of guilt is absolutely crucial to collectivism. The Left must teach its subjects to think of themselves as criminals. That’s the only way law-abiding people will endure levels of coercive power that would normally require specific […]

“Blinded By Delight”

by Smitty With apologies to Springsteen, and admiration for his lyrical density, here is some love for Eric Holder: “Blinded By Delight” Hippies Yippies Drippies and pinheads named Zippy with a Commie zampolit In the dumps with these chumps as the environmentalist pumps his head all full of ‘it With the border in disorder, due […]

Dean: Romney’s Tax Rate “Doesn’t Seem Fair To Ordinary Working People”
