Not Worth A Continental

The Continental Congress was struggling to find funds and provisions for the Revolutionary forces when it decided to issue its own currency. On June 22, 1776, it issued $2 million in paper money. The currency featured the likeness of Revolutionary soldiers and carried the inscription, “The United Colonies.” The “Continentals,” as the bills were known, […]

Democrat Doozie, A Bad Investment, Green Policies And Pension Fund Raids

*The Dems pick a doozie in S.C. With all the news pouring in from various state primaries you might have missed one of the weirdest. It seems that an unemployed veteran, with no visible means of support, somehow came up with the $10,400 filing fee in South Carolina and won the Democratic primary for the […]

"A Republic—If You Can Keep It"

I had to face the fact: A Straight Talk reader had fallen victim to 100 years of liberal brainwashing. What he said was such a gross perversion of the truth—and the difference is so incredibly important to preserving what liberties we have left—I hope you’ll indulge me in a brief history lesson this week… 

The Magna Carta Established

It was nearly 800 years ago this week that King John of England, under pressure from a group of barons, agreed to put his seal on a document that, for the very first time in English history, limited the king’s powers by law. King John was one of Britain’s most unpopular monarchs. He devised numerous […]

The Goldman Sachs Lie

*Goldman Sachs lied to its customers. The best summary I’ve seen about what Goldman Sachs did wrong comes from my friend Eric Fry. Here’s what he said in the Daily Reckoning, one of my favorite ezines: “As one of America’s largest purveyors of toxic collateralized debt obligations (CDOs), Goldman played the role of financial cigarette […]

The World’s Funniest Joke?

To paraphrase a famous commercial, we deserve a break today. There’s been so much negative news, so much bleating and blaming about the problems we face, so much feigned outrage and false promises, that it’s enough to depress Mary Poppins. Read this article for something a little different… 

“Tear Down This Wall!”

It was 23 years ago this week that President Ronald Reagan stood at the Brandenburg Gate in the divided city of Berlin and urged Mikhail Gorbachev, general secretary of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union, to "tear down this wall!" At the time, several members of the President’s staff opposed the remark. Chief of […]

The Census, PC Police, Another Lying Politician And Pseudonyms

*How many does it take to count us? Here’s an interesting tidbit from another column I write for Personal Liberty Alerts. "This Week in History”" is the last item every Wednesday. The one this week related that during the 1890 census, it took 45,000 census workers to count the 62,622,249 people then in the United […]

The Debate Over Illegal Immigration Gets Even Crazier

Remember the expression, to swallow a camel but choke on a gnat? That’s how I feel about the reaction of several people who commented on what I recently wrote about illegal immigration. Read on for more on the illegal immigration debate…

Technology And The Census

On June 1, 1890, some 45,000 census workers set out to count every person then living in the United States. And for the first time they had modern technology to help in their efforts. Seems 30-year-old Herman Hollerith had invented a counting machine that worked faster than any method previously tried. It worked by punching […]
