Over The Cliff: Us And Them

Over The Cliff: Us And Them

Like many Americans, I rose to greet 2013 with a renewed sense of hope and a belief that the new year would bring forth joy and success. I made it as far as my morning news roundup before I realized I was wrong.

Obama Opens Fire

Obama Opens Fire

In an interview with David Gregory, President Barack Obama repeated his opposition to the National Rifle Association’s suggestion to place armed security at the schools Obama’s and Gregory’s children pass on their way to the mall. The two men send their children to the excellent — and well-defended — Sidwell Friends School.

D Is For Hypocrite

D Is For HypocriteDianne, David, Dwight — oh my! Obama talks about his favorite subject: himself. And where, oh where, has Hillary gone? All this, plus, welcome to the NFL! Presented in 1080 hi-def, FOR FREE!  It’s The Great Eight, from the Personal Liberty Digest™!

Hypocrisy Unchained

Hypocrisy Unchained

Being the helpful sort of fellow I am, I thought “why not catch a movie and then yammer about it in print for the Personal Liberty Digest™?” Since Bob Livingston wasn’t around to say something like “that’s the kind of idea which makes me consider replacing you with a syndicated horoscope;” off to the theater I went.

“’Twas the Night Before Christmas, 2012”

“’Twas the Night Before Christmas, 2012”

In honor of the holiday, Ben Crystal provides his take on a classic Christmas poem with a political bent. We hope you enjoy it!

My Christmas Message

My Christmas Message

When Mr. Livingston told me that I’d be leading off Personal Liberty Digest™ on Christmas Day, the only suggestion he offered involved “something short and light.” I leafed through the Bible for suitable Christmas inspiration, turning to the most Christmasy passage I could think of: Luke 2:10-14.

Christmas With The Maya

Christmas With The MayaThe extinct stone-age culture got the dates wrong — who saw that coming? Ol’ Pluggsy is on the job; more or less. And guess who’s coming for the guns? All this — plus — remedial pirate geography! Presented in 1080 hi-def, FOR FREE! It’s The Great Eight, from the Personal Liberty Digest™!

It’s Always ‘Too Soon’

It’s Always ‘Too Soon’

Ultimately, it doesn’t matter when the “right” time to delve into so-called “gun control” has arrived. Once the smoke clears, we all step back into the rhetorical ring for another round of debate about what liberals call “gun violence” and conservatives call either “crime” or the lyrics to a rap album.

Angels Among Us

Angels Among Us

What happened Friday at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Conn., doesn’t lend itself to easy expression. After all, the massacre which stole away the lives of 27 people, including 20 children, so exceeds the capacity of mere words that even remarks like “words fail me” seem trite and clichéd.

Merry… Christmas?

Merry... Christmas?From the hymnal in Jeremiah Wright’s “church,” it’s a very special edition of The Great Eight. Presented in 1080 hi-def, FOR FREE! The Great Eight, from the Personal Liberty Digest™!
