    Another excellent find, Kathianne!

    "The head is the people. We work for the people. Remember?" An epiphany! I'm reminded of the shock on Democrats' faces when reminded that tax cuts aren't "sugar sticks" and "giveaways". Voices from the wilderness rocked them to their foundations with the simple words, "It ain't your money!"

    The MSM is used to shaping public opinion. Every day that controlled world slips further into the past.

    Agreed. What's funnier is that they could use what bloggers are saying for fact checking, self correcting, and a start for search of further depth. Instead they are paralyzed at the perceived threat. Alas, some like Madigan, are beginning to get it. :teeth:
