Following the jump, is the entire text left behind from Joe Stack explaining the reasoning behind his actions.  Before listening the inevitable spin by the media making this a case of a delusional Tea Party supporter, I thought it would be best to read what this domestic terrorist had to say.  While very long and ranty, his manifesto is oddly coherent.  Stack was obviously a sick man that rationalized his desperate actions by blaming an invisible third party for all that has ruined his life.  But he wasnt a stereotypical partisan man of any sort.  He hates capitalism, but he hates big government.  His one tea-party-esque theme is his displeasure that the system is rigged for the corporation while the individual is left out to fend for themselves.  I can’t imagine being so enraged to even consider such an act; but it’s interesting to see how a man could get to this tragic point.  Read for yourself and comment below…  (more…)

A bunch of gems over the past week for our general amusement.  First, Sen. Arlen Specter (D-Penn.) and Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.) appeared together on a Philly radio station last week for our entertainment. During the town hall meetings last year Specter left with a few gems of video clips. He’s back at it again telling Bachmann to act like a lady. Where is his mind? 1952…

This past weekend White House press secretary Robert Gibbs appeared on “Fox News Sunday”, he defended the decision to read alleged bomber Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab his Miranda rights after just 50 minutes of interrogation. He claimed that valuable information was gathered by the experienced investigators. I will give him the benefit of the doubt and not argue the whole Miranda rights issue here. All I want to do is point out that the Director of National Intelligence, Dennis Blair was not even made aware of the decision. (more…)

Pat Buchanan has a long list of political accolades.  As a former adviser to multiple Republican Presidents he has years of experience on Television as well as Radio.  Currently a regular on MSNBC and syndicated columnist, Buchanan is as experienced politically as anyone and is an influential voice in today’s body politic.  I often read his columns on townhall.com with an appreciation for his experience and willingness to say what he believes.  Unfortunately today I wanted to highlight two of his recent columns as I believe his logic and tone do nothing to advance the debate on two touchy subjects.   Until we can get clearer thinking regarding Race and Radical Islam, our collective relations with both will continue to be hampered.

Lately the Church hasn’t been to pleased with the State.  In particular, Providence Bishop Thomas J. Tobin has forbidden Rep. Patrick J. Kennedy, Rhode Island Democrat, to receive the Roman Catholic sacrament of Holy Communion because of his advocacy of abortion rights. There is more to the story though. (more…)

Gay MarriageThe elections from last Tuesday echoed a sentiment heard time and time again. PEOPLE DO NOT WANT GAY MARRIAGE. Maine became the latest of 31 states to vote for a ban on gay marriage. Typically a liberal stronghold, Maine joins other even more liberal states like California and Hawaii to by popular vote, reject the idea of changing the fundamental union of our civilization. If the country’s most liberal states cannot get these initiatives passed, where is this heated debate going? I have an idea where it should go. (more…)
