November 28, 2011

Two weeks after the Richmond Tea Party delivered an invoice to Richmond Mayor Dwight Jones for costs incurred for previous rallies, we received a letter from the City of Richmond formally stating that the city is auditing our Tea Party. Coincidence? This audit is an obvious attempt to intimidate and harass us for standing up […]

In the beginning, the American created the super market and the small business. And the stores were without form, and void, and darkness lay upon the faces of the deep, and the spirit of the American hovered over the cities and the American said “Let there be Thanksgiving,” and there was Thanksgiving.

Return To Free Market Principles

November 27, 2011

If we’re to form conclusions based on the behavior of our elected officials, the United States government being over $15 trillion in debt is a minor concern. It looks like figuring out how to cut spending is simply too adult a puzzle for ”progressives” in the Senate and the White House. What else can the […]

The Untouchables: Classic Campy Film Noir

November 26, 2011
Robert Stack as Eliot Ness

Okay, I am a sucker for the old series “The Untouchables” which was a combination of campy dramatics and a television version of film noir.   Based on the book “The Untouchables” written by Eliot Ness and Oscar Fraley, the TV series followed the adventures of Ness and his band of untouchables. There was a campy aspect to the show […]

Hope for the GOP

November 25, 2011

Europe at a Crosswords

November 25, 2011
The Failing Euro

November 24, 2011

The holiday of Thanksgiving is one of my favorites.  Not just for the food, though that does play a large part in it; or the crisp nip in the air this time of year brings.  No for me it’s the gathering of family and friends; the sharing of fond memories and the catching up on […]
