It is no secret that I am not a proponent of massive government regulations in the name of so-called consumer safety.

I guess the AP wants to charge bloggers for quoting AP content on their sites. Well, Michelle Malkin decided to use the AP’s rates to calculate how much they would owe her for quoting her blog without permission. It’s at least $132,125.

I know this election is going to be brutal, but how about a little class, huh? This has got to be the most vile thing I have read in a while. From the Chris Kelly at The Huffington Post, with the makes me want to vomit just a little remark in bold. When John McCain […]

I cannot believe that Tim Russert is dead. My husband told me the news when we were driving home from his office this evening. I had been at the beach all day with the kids, so I hadn’t heard. I was a huge fan of Tim Russert. I even had a crush on him in […]

An Etsy shop called “dugshop” sells an Obama soap on a rope called, what else, “Hope on a Rope.” (Etsy is a website for buying and selling handmade stuff.) From the website: What we’ve all been waiting for — a little hope, and Barack’s the man for the job. We made him purple, because we […]
