‘You’re A Grand Old Flag’

When’s the last time you heard (or better yet, sung) the lyrics to George M. Cohan’s marvelous tribute to the country he loved? The song “You’re a Grand Old Flag” has a fascinating history.

Borrowing From Peter To Pay… Peter?

The United States provides hundreds of millions of dollars in foreign aid to the very countries it borrows billions of dollars from, according to a report by the Congressional Research Service. The report, which focuses only on countries to which the U.S. owes $10 billion or more, provides data for fiscal year 2010 and includes a chart where “countries are ordered by the value of their treasury security holdings, with the highest value holder, China, listed first.”

Why Everything Is Dirtier

I am old enough to have a vague memory of clothes so white they were called bright.

Bachmann Received Divine ‘Calling’ To Run

As he stumbled (hindered by the back brace he wears), there were shrieks of neither comfort nor condemnation.

Stop Obama’s Unconstitutional Power Grab!

Webs And Roots

McCain Criticizes Obama Over Libya Operation

Senator John McCain (R-Ariz.) on Sunday slammed President Barack Obama for his handling of the nation’s military strategy in Libya. During an appearance on FOX News Sunday, McCain said that Libyan dictator Moammar Gadhafi would have already been removed from power if the United States had remained in control of the operation.
