Looking for a Miracle

Franklin @ March 29, 2008 # 4 Comments

I was going to write a sardonic post about how Barack Obama is the Antichrist and why conservative Christians should vote for him to accelerate the second coming. The sad thing is that there are people out there who really think Mr. Obama is the Antichrist, so much of the punch of the post would […]

Franklin @ December 20, 2007 # No Comment Yet

Today I want to share a very interesting website: Wikileaks. Their goal is to develop … an uncensorable Wikipedia for untraceable mass document leaking and analysis. Our primary interest is in exposing oppressive regimes in Asia, the former Soviet bloc, Sub-Saharan Africa and the Middle East, but we also expect to be of assistance to […]

The Myth of Republican Fiscal Conservatism

Franklin @ November 30, 2007 # 13 Comments

Franklin @ October 28, 2007 # 2 Comments

You can, and should, read Sinclair Lewis‘ seminal book It Can t Happen Here. His biography is available (of course!) at Wikipedia.

Franklin @ October 27, 2007 # 2 Comments

Pressure to limit the Bill of Rights’ provisions, push them into oblivion, or otherwise ignore them keeps mounting.

I mentioned […]
