Creating Dependency, One Mouthful at a Time. It should come as no surprise that millions of Americans are hardly shamed by relying on Aunt Samantha for their daily bread.

Remember the good ol' days when George W. Bush was demonized as an imperial president abusing his executive power by doing ... well, G0d knows what?

In a fashion that would make any tinpot dictator proud, Obama has used the left-leaning opinion mag The New Republic and singled out Fox News and Rush Limbaugh essentially as enemies of the State. In the interview he granted to the magazine, he said: If a Republican member of Congress... Continue reading
