Federal Review hits the deck running:
DEMOCRATS: "WE SUCK"
Sen. Zell Miller (D-GA), the man who urged Bill Clinton to run 1992 was the keynoters at Bill's convention, is taking his party to the woodshed in his new book, A National Party No More: The Conscience of a Conservative Democrat.
In a scathing rebuke to his own party, Andrew Cuomo is charging that Democrats are "lost in time," often appear "bloodless, soulless and clueless," and have "fumbled" their role in the post-9/11 world.
FREE SPEECH MEANS SOMETIMES SAYING YOU'RE SORRY - -
by Kathleen Parker
"Speak incorrectly and ye shall be toast. So might go our lesson for the day as three high-profile figures recently have been taken down - their jobs lost or at risk - for saying something others considered offensive." [ via Betsy ]
DO YOU REMEMBER WHEN?
You got your windshield cleaned, oil checked, and gas pumped without asking, all for free, every time?
And you didn't pay for air?
And, you got trading stamps to boot?
Laundry detergent had free glasses, dishes or towels hidden inside the box?
It was considered a great privilege to be taken out to dinner at a real restaurant with your parents?
They threatened to keep kids back a grade if they failed . . . and they did?
When a 57 Chevy was everyone's dream car to cruise, peel out, lay rubber or watch submarine races?
And people went steady?
No one ever asked where the car keys were because they were always in the car, in the ignition, and the doors were never locked?
If you can remember most or all of these, then you have lived!!!!!!!
