A warning against government growth Our neighborhood in Northern Virginia has private roads and we pay the nice man down the street to plow. After the last of Snowmageddon, our roads were clear within a day. However, many of the government owned streets in our town were still a wreck a week later. The county asked people to shovel sidewalks and more»

This week the prestigious British journal of medicine, The Lancet, “full retracted from the public record” a flawed and now completely debunked study published in 1998 that claimed a link between childhood vaccines and autism.

Unfortunately, there are troubling signs more»

By saying “yes” to Scott Brown tonight, the people of Massachusetts voted “no.” “No” to corruption, secrecy and the fanatical push for government control demonstrated by Congressional Democrats and the White House throughout the entire legislative process on a healthcare bill that the American people oppose by huge margins. This election gives a new more»
