How I Learned The Truth About The State

I’ll never forget my last visit to lovely Hinesville, Ga. For it was there that I learned a valuable lesson, one I shall never forget: In a police state, we’re all criminals. Think about it: How many laws have you broken today? This week? This month? Have you changed lanes without a turn signal? Exceeded the posted speed limit?

Lessons In History

In his column this week, Patrick J. Buchanan wrote about the ignorance of today’s American schoolchildren, as revealed by the results of the National Assessment of Education Progress test.

Obama Ignoring Military Advice With Troop Withdrawals

Tonight, President Barack Obama will give a major speech regarding the Afghanistan war campaign. He is expected to announce the withdrawal of up to 30,000 United States troops from Afghanistan by November of next year. “The move comes despite warnings from his military commanders that recent security gains are fragile.
