Cruising the Web

Why is the Red Cross sheltering Hamas officials in Jerusalem?

John Kasich demonstrates why and how he's going to bring real reform to Ohio. If only he'd been involved in Ohio governance for the past ten years instead of being off earning a living at Fox, perhaps Ohio wouldn't be in the position it is today. And Republicans would have a more exciting entry into the 2012 race than we're facing today.

It sounds like a safe bet that Donald Trump is just scamming us about his intention to run. Even for more than $184.27

Check out this list of loony tunes who were in the leadership of the London marches and riots this past weekend.

Guess which set of states is growing and which is losing population: those with low taxes and right to work laws or those with high taxes and strong public unions? And as populations shift out of states, who is going to provide the tax base for all the public spending that the politicians have been piling up? Just asking.

Even the Washington Post is confused
about the logic of President Obama encouraging Brazil's deep-sea drilling for oil while blocking such drilling by American companies in American waters.

My husband answers those who seem to be arguing that since building codes helped preserve buildings after Japan's earthquake, that all conservative economics has now been discredited.

I see that NC State has found a way to solve its budgetary woes. They're going after Loyola for using the Wolfpack for their sports teams. Apparently, they think that they're the only ones that can use the Wolfpack for their sports teams.

Ten things that Libya tells us about Barack Obama. None of it particularly good.
