It looks as if a good lesson to live by is this: If a foreign country doesn’t give a rip about the rights or lives of its own citizens, chances are they don’t care too much your health. In April, the FDA refused almost twice as much food from China because it was contaminated in […]

“I have found a certain type calls himself a Liberal. Now I always thought I was a Liberal. I came up terribly surprised one time when I found out that I was a right-wing conservative extremist, when I listened to everybody’s point of view that I ever met, and then decided how I should feel. […]

Personally, I don’t like weepy leadership. It isn’t effective.
