Here are, in my view, interesting, noteworthy columns and articles from the past week that I highly recommend (You will note that on occasion, I do not endorse the opinions of the author and may point that out. Despite my disagreements, I still feel the piece is worth a read).


2,000-plus turn out to "Celebrate Walker" in Wisconsin

"For conservatives who have felt their voices drowned out by the anti-Walker protest movement during the past year, Saturday was a time to shine."


'Illinois': French for 'Just like Greece'

"Even more interesting than the comparison of Illinois to Greece is how Illinois stands in contrast with Wisconsin."


Big labor, potentially big power in WI recall races

“To supporters, unions are a bastion of democracy, fighting for the rights of poor- and middle-class workers in a world ruled by greedy corporate managers with little regard for their employees or the effect of the corporate policies on the rest of society. To critics, unions are money- and power-hungry, offering job protection for lazy workers while discouraging non-union employment growth, constantly asking society for handouts and, particularly in the case of public unions, leeching off taxpayers."


A Naughty Newt, A Bitter Ex and Misplaced Rage

As a Christian, I will neither defend nor excuse Newt's past adultery. That said, after watching his ex-wife Marianne go off on him on ABC, as a man, I now get why he supposedly wanted an ‘open marriage.’ Holy crikey. That chick is scary! Hell hath no fury like a furry woman. That's one angry, gangrenous ex-Gingrich chica right there, folks. Let's see ... what do we have here? Lonely and bitter? Table for one?”


Why use ‘despicable’, clueless left-wing media to moderate GOP debates?

“The ickiness of Diane Sawyer asking questions in her cloying voice is more than most can bear. The utter cluelessness of the questions these people think actual American voters care about is mystifying. The shameless and ham-handed pandering to conservatives by the networks is revolting.”


Middle America longs for conservatives to stand up to liberal bullying

"I wish Republican politicians would have faith in the largely conservative electorate and not behave as though they’ll make themselves unelectable unless they pander to Generic Moderate. Who is that guy, anyway? Have you ever met him?"


Top ten things we want to hear in Obama's State of the Union address

President Obama is set to trek down Pennsylvania Avenue to Capitol Hill on Jan. 24 and make the annual State of  the Union address to a joint session of Congress. Rather than wait to hear the bad news, HUMAN EVENTS would like to offer some advice to the President: The Top 10 Things We Want to Hear in Obama’s State of the Union Address (but probably won’t).”


Voter ID and your kitchen sink

"Earlier this month, Illinois passed a law requiring consumers to present a photo ID in order to buy Drano. Yet, MoveOn.org has remained silent.  The government is limiting poor people’s access to Drano, while George Soros’ people just sit by idly.  They don’t care about all the clogged kitchen sinks that will eventually get so bad, those poor people will have to leave their homes."
