    Getting my conspiracy on - MSM scrubbing the news 1984 style/who really did 9/11?

    I can't believe the Judge got fired for this. Neither person stated anything outright - they were very cautious in their language. And the 3 minutes of footage about 9/11 this video adds on is some of the most powerful I've seen. Judge Napolitano.How to get fired in under 5 mins HD - YouTube

    Repeal of the National Minimum Drinking Age Act of 1984 Poll

    This is the law that was passed in the 80s that established a minimum drinking age nationally of 21. Now, there have been obvious obstacles and problems with this for quite some time. The argument against repeal is that 18 year olds are not of a mental capacity to handle alcohol responsibility...

    Government agents can sneak onto your property in the middle of the night, put a GPS device on the bottom of your car and keep track of everywhere you go. This doesn't violate your Fourth Amendment rights, because you do not have any reasonable expectation of privacy in your own driveway -...

    1984, 21st century style

    I had an epiphany the other day while golfing with my uncle. We were joking about how 1984 came 25 years too late, and I thought about the endless wars that were waged in that novel. The purpose of those wars was to keep the people ever in fear, while also destroying anything that might give...

    1984 and Freedom Fries.

    1984 Kool-Aid Drinkers

    I have waited the past ten days for the outcry from rational conservatives, very much in vain. George W. Bush has finally lost it with, “Listen, we've never been stay the course, George (referring to George Stephanopoulos).” I keep waiting for the mass of rational people to stand up and scream...
