The John Birch Society
Constitutionalists and free-market economists claim that the idea that every high school graduate is entitled to a government-subsidized loan to attend a $30,000-a-year university is fiscally maniacal. But unfortunately, it’s also a fiscal reality that has propelled college graduates into financial Armageddon.  
America’s premier purveyor of overpriced coffee has become the target of a boycott launched by the National Organization for Marriage (NOM), a nationwide group battling for traditional marriage. On March 21 the group announced the launch of DumpStarbucks.com, a website encouraging individuals to stop purchasing their daily latte or French roast brew at their local Starbucks because the Seattle-based company has made an official endorsement of same-sex marriage.  
Over a year has passed since the “Arab Spring” came to Egypt, and the evidence continues to accumulate demonstrating that what has come of last year’s revolution is bringing a "chill" to the relationship between the United States and Egypt.  
A few weeks ago, I read and reviewed Ilana Mercer’s Into the Cannibal’s Pot: Lessons for America from Post-Apartheid South Africa. A week or two after that, my grandmother passed away. Considered in themselves, each of these events is entirely distinct from the other.    
Since the September 11, 2001 attacks by al-Qaeda terrorists on the United States, and the United States’ invasion of Afghanistan in 2001 and Iraq in 2003, vague invocations of “the Crusades” have gained a new relevance. Both sides of the conflict have sought to link the current series of wars to those of the Crusades — either by way of justifying or denouncing of their current course of action. History is one of the victims of the current conflict, as the much-maligned and ill-remembered Crusades have been recast time and again to serve various agendas.  
On Tuesday the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit in New Orleans upheld a lower court ruling invalidating a Farmers Branch, Texas, city ordinance aimed at combating the presence of illegal aliens by forbidding those without proper immigration documentation from renting housing. This Circuit Court ruling keeps in force the injunction imposed by the lower district court against the law — Ordinance 2952.    
President Obama embarked on a four-state energy tour this week and made his first stop in Boulder City, a Nevada town about 20 miles outside Las Vegas. The town is home to the Copper Mountain Solar 1 Facility, the largest photovoltaic solar power plant in the United States, where the President renewed his support for the solar industry.  
Georgia Tea Party activists have joined forces with organized labor to oppose a bill before the state House of Representatives that would limit the right of demonstrators to gather and picket for their cause.  
Maybe now we know the true purpose for that giant domestic spy complex being built by the NSA in Utah. Attorney General Eric Holder approved a new list of guidelines for how long agencies of the federal government tasked with combatting “terrorism” may retain data gathered about American citizens. Basically, this information may be saved even if it contains no connection to criminal activity whatsoever.
Many criticisms have been leveled against various forms of “alternative energy” in general, and wind power in particular. Some critics have called wind power “impractical,” while others have labeled it as “idealistic.” Some have noted that the turbines are simply “ugly.”
