    Well, if this recent poll is any indication; the Tea party is now preeminently neoconservatives in disguise; at least in Florida. I was resisting this as much as possible but the polls are showing a steady drift away from the values the tea party started with and towards the status quo...

    Challenge to Government Building Carry Bans?

    I've been thinking about this whole banning carry in government buildings thing for a while and it seems to me that it wouldn't pass constitutional muster in "non-sensitive" places. "Sensitive Places" is a distinction made in Heller V. D.C. and although it has yet to be defined, I think...

    This is a well done video about trying to fight the two party system that I found embedded in an article last night. I've only been able to watch about a half hour of it so far. It's about 2 hours long but a must watch for those who are frustrated with our current predicament...

    Baraboo/Sauk county area carpool for WCI picnic?

    Hi guys, Who wants to carpool to Pewaukee on the 24th from the Baraboo area? If we can meet in a central location and use only one or two vehicles I'm all for saving the gas; or in my case diesel fuel.

    Ron Paul Facts

    I thought a lot of these were pretty funny! Ron Paul once ordered a Big Mac from Burger King, and got one. Ron Paul's been shot at but the "Pro 2A bullets" refuse to hurt him. When fascism goes to sleep at night, it checks under the bed for Ron Paul. Ron Paul was the OBGYN that Delivered...

    Is there a way to search multiple items that MUST be included? Say I want to search for "Coyote Brown". It will find a bunch of stuff with coyote in it and with brown in it but I only want the stuff that has both. I tried "Coyote AND Brown" but it just ignores "AND" totally. That's another...

    The Daily Show: Battle of the Bans. John Stewert on the ridiculous Arizona aftermath
