EXCLUSIVE — Mike Lee: Conservatives’ Moment to Stand Against Cronyism

PLAYING THE REID “Tea Party Patriots are domestic terrorist” CARD

[PersonalLiberty.com] It appears that as its main campaign strategy to wrest control of the Senate from the Democrats, the GOP will play the Reid card. That’s a reference to Senator Harry Reid, the man who has openly and unabashedly stated that anyone who opposes a big, overbearing and over-militarized government is a “domestic terrorist.” Continue reading

Lawn darts, BB guns, and the trouble with protecting us from ourselves

[HumanEvents.com] A few years ago, a work colleague departed for a short-term political appointment with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission.

There was the tennis tournament where I got ill from drinking too much water. (Water! Who knew?) Or the time I ignored open cuts on my hand and stripped old deck stain without wearing gloves. And the time I jacked up my car without setting the emergency brake while it was parked on a hill. Continue reading
