Voight Is Unafraid

*One actor is not afraid to speak out. Did you hear about the open letter actor Jon Voight sent President Barack Obama a few weeks ago? Most Hollywood actors would never dare buck the liberal line; it’s usually a death sentence for a career.

So a tip of the hat to Voight, who spoke “truth to power” like few of his colleagues would dare. Here’s part of that letter; you can go to Google to read the whole thing.

The Federal Reserve’s War On The Dollar

Hark! What’s that sound we hear? Why it’s the U.S. cavalry, in the form of 60 new conservative Congressmen riding to our rescue. There’s another sound coming over the horizon.

The End of “Olbermania”

With the exception of the occasional troll who bumbles onto our message boards, liberals are few and far between here in the enlightened empire of the Personal Liberty Digest. Therefore, something tells me the number of Bob Livingstonians who bemoaned the indefinite suspension of MSNBC’s reigning rant-meister Keith Olbermann is lower than the number of transgender census takers working the northwestern Montana survivalist compounds.
