Weekly Review

By D. E. Carson, published on Apr 15, 2007

...White House’s ineffectiveness.” Frankly, it is the Democrats who are ineffective. They have done nothing but bully legislation through attempting to unseat the president as Commander-in-chief by attempting to relieve him of the Constitutional authority to manage troop movement in Iraq. We are facing a new Constitutional crisis. This crisis is pitting the Founding Fathers of America against bong-smoking, thumb-sucking, tree-hugging, Birkenstock-wearing, draft-dodging, crybaby liberals for the very soul of this country. The men who developed the concepts that are outlined in ... (more)

By Cecelia Hendryx, published on Mar 26, 2007
