"The history of liberty is a history of resistance. The history of liberty is a history of limitations of governmental power, not the increase of it."

Bush's policies still are the same, regardless of the spin now being accorded them by the Obamatrons. We're still in Iraq. Gitmo still is in business. America's southern border still is wide open. The Bush bailouts continue unabated, but now are on steroids.

It's enough to make your head spin, isn't it?

Each week brings a fresh batch of outrageous events and news items that further marginalize an ever-growing percentage of Americans.
