BHTV was boring. Too much unchallenged lefty POV.

I appreciate the effort Bob put into the site. But I think it can be successful if the libs are challenged more. The Reason magazine input was crap. Esp Matt Welch. Have Steve Sailer or Mark Steyn...

The reason WPA jobs...

Democrats not irate over the shootings

Compared to the Giffords shooting, there is minimal democrat reaction to the Norway massacre in the US. HuffPo is not faulting Fox news or the tea party. I don't understand. Should'nt the FBI be...

Re: Lessons Learned: Anti-Muslim Bias Goes Mainstream (Farhana Khera & Aziz Huq)

start with some facts - is heightend airport security because of muslims?

If there were very few muslims living the the US, our public spaces would not require the extreme security measures that exist nowadays. Airport security must cost 10s of billions per year in the US....

Re: This is more like it!

In the near future, when states have broken free of the overspending and overregulating feds, there will be states that welcome angry lefties.

Re: can Obama be impeached if gov cannot function on 8/4?

the government takes in $200B per month. No essentials need go wanting with that amount of income. We can also raise revenue by increasing tariffs on imports from China.

a CEO of a company that is not prepared for an eventuality that its banks are going to withdraw its line of credit is subject to being removed for malfeasance of duty. Correct?

Re: The Week in Blog: Pray Away the Debt (Elise Foley & Matt Lewis)

Re: Values Added: Perrytastic Edition (Amy Sullivan & Sarah Posner)

Re: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love Nonproliferation (Robert Wright & George Perkovich)

Re: The states that exit the federal system would not have nukes

Re: Calvinball Edition (Adam Serwer & David Weigel)

that is a valid point. One fault I have with the republican house is they have not passed a budget yet. At least produce a preliminary budget based on the hearings held and data gathered. If house...
