Pundits are in an uproar probing Ms. Kagan’s sexual orientation, with some gay activists depressed that whatever her private life may be, it is still private and thus Obama failed to appoint an openly gay nominee such as Kathleen Sullivan or Pam Karlan. But while some Gay and Lesbian activists bemoan the “quality” of this […]

It doesn't come as too much of a surprise that the measure to audit the Federal Reserve is coming under continuous fire from the central bank and its cronies. For the first time since the Federal Reserve was created nearly a century ago, they have hired an actual lobbyist to pound the pavement on Capitol Hill. This is a desperate effort to hang on to the privilege of secrecy and lack of accountability they have enjoyed for so long. Last week showed they are getting their money's worth in the
We can't help but be a little pleased when the mainstream media occasionally validates our point of view (truly cheap thrills), and in this case, the BBC has posted a report that aligns well with something we wrote in late April. Our intrepid feedbackers provided some pushback to our conclusions (expressing the point of view that the lazy Greeks were getting what was coming to them) but we were fairly confident that we had some points to make.
Eurozone leaders are ready to defend the euro with the equivalent of US$1trillion if necessary. The American Fed and other central banks stand ready to help too apparently. There are several conclusions to be reached from this – and the mainstream and alternative media is generously presenting at least seven scenarios (perhaps our readers can provide more?). Below, we use the article excerpt above as a jumping off point to unpack them for you, explain the significance of each and then choose
By ANDREW W. GRIFFIN Oklahoma Watchdog, editor May 10, 2010 OKLAHOMA CITY — Last year, at RipOffReport.com, a concerned citizen in Dallas, Texas wrote a piece saying he was being “raped” by the North Texas Toll Authority over charges he had allegedly accrued during his commute to and from work. It’s an alarming post. Wrote […]
As Americans have witnessed in recent days, there are bills brought before the Congress that attempt to hide their true intent. Their authors try to conceal the worst elements by making their bills thousands of pages long and full of cryptic and ambi…
The OK House has agreed to vote to override Governor Brad Henry’s veto of HB 2569, the bill prohibiting RFID tags in the OK DL/ID cards.
This vote was originally set for Wednesday, 5/5/10, but has now been moved to Tuesday, 5/11/10.
There is some evidence that the Governor is applying pressure to members of the Democrat caucus not to override his veto on this bill.

Liquid Mountaineering is a new sport which is attempting to achieve what man has tried to do for centuries: walk on water. Or to be more precise: running on water. We are developing the sport from scratch. By accident we found out that with the right water repellent equipment you can run across bodies of water, just like a stone skimming the surface.
For the country, then, to have developed the pragmatic approach to law and public policy is a tragic contradiction. All of the fundamental ideals and principles that America is known for is rejected by pragmatism and pragmatists. They take them to be myths or, as one major contemporary pragmatist recently emailed me, as pure BS!
Again, the hypnotic clarion call for more centralization is launched. Being as sensitive to these sorts of promotions as a certain kind of princess is to a pea under a stack of mattresses, we notice when rhetoric resembling a promotion is floated. We were startled when we read (we can't remember where) that it was lack of a centralized market that caused the recent trillion-dollar drop in the NYSE's share values last week. But when we read the Reuters article excerpted above there was no doubt
