    This one will leave you speechless.

    On the plus side, at least a few of the cops in the video were apparently brought up on criminal charges.

    Libertarian-leaning? Then you remember that he deregulated the airlines.

    That was Jimmy Carter.

    I live a few towns away from Ward Bird, it was a pretty big deal locally. There were sign wavers outside the courthouse property and on the side of the major roads nearby for nigh on twenty four hours a day this fall, until winter drove picketing into dayligt hours.

    Joe: feel free to not visit our fine state if the actions of a particular county proscutor and a (cough) Democrat Governer bother you. They bothered us too, you may have noticed (or not) and we literally to to the streets (er, roads) until he was released. It’s a damn shame he will still have a felony conviction, but it isn’t outside the realm of reasonable suppositon that he might receive a quiet pardon at a later date.

    And yet CA growth after the agressive [sic] Reagan tax increases…

    What unit of measurement are you using to measure this “growth”? Dollars?

    Regan was responsible for me becomming a libertarian. He talked the talk but didnt walk the walk.
    BTW the Misses web site is the second site (The Agitator first) I read each day. I find the dailys very insightful, especially the old Rothbard history essays.

    I happen to like incredibly gory musicals…

    Dangerman, sorry, no offense to the good people of New Hampshire (or Vermont or Massachusetts). My ire is directed to those who could prosecute and send to prison a man recovering from surgery who was simply protecting his own property from a trespasser and did not actually hurt anyone. My scorn is to them. I spit on them and all they represent.

    And your governor is a disgrace.

    Unfortunately for you, you New Englanders seem to have more than your share of them.

    “O’Reilly is not a conservative. He is a populist”

    Well, technically, America’s real conservatives are the center-left goo goo liberals.

    Loyalty to personalities and institutions over principles? Check. Selective moral relativism? Check. Anti-“ideology” ideology? Check. Un-self-consciously rationalistic identification and rejection of “rationalism”? Check. Yep, they’re the closest thing America has to actual conservatives.

    I agree there are CINOs. Lots of them. I want to get back to classical liberalism and the old school conservatives who just wanted to be left alone (and wanted to leave you alone) and have the government follow a sane restrictive fiscal policy. Unfortunatley they are the endangered species out there.

    The funny thing about O’leilly is that he gets it exactly backwards: If one day the tides didn’t come in on schedule THAT would be evidence of god.

    Or maybe a great big water magnet constructed by Aliens!
