Washington was the one national hero, and yet the Washington Light Infantry of Charleston was named, not after the illustrious George, but after his kinsman, William.

The French react angrily to their share of American diplomacy when they learn the Empire’s NSA was commandeering THEIR phone records right alongside Brazil’s, the North Pole’s, LV-426’s and of course YOURS and Mine.
Now that China is the LARGEST IMPORTER of crude oil on Earth, I wonder how they will deal with the pressure of having to increase their international presence-will we see the rise of “Chinese Exceptionalism”?
Carney: Did the Tea Party Caucus ever actually expect that the HOR would succeed in “shutting the government down” or did they play for a “vote no hope yes” scenario where they get to yell about Big Brother than watch it go into effect anyway?
Forget Article V here comes Article XXVIII, an Amendment introduced in Congress – by Sen. Rand Paul – to prevent another Congress from EVER exempting itself from the laws written for the rest of us
The brokest nation in the history of broke nations is about to blow $1.6 BILLION on “foreign aid” to Pakistan, just another inconvenient truth of exactly WHAT all that $$$$ has to be borrowed for

Social Security is out of money and is paying out more in benefits, in any other similar scenario WHAT must happen next?
Mike Church’s [r]epublican though of the day. A morning spent at any major airport will validate 1. Our collected corpulence 2. The tawdry state of our sartorial skills and 3. The appearance of the iGod who must be what is appearing in the palms of all those mesmerized people endlessly staring, avoiding any contact with the world so intimately gathered around them.
