At the close of the Constitutional Convention in 1787, Dr. James McHenry, a Maryland delegate, followed Benjamin Franklin from Independence Hall. He recorded a question asked by a lady, directed at Dr. Franklin.

The lady asked, "Well Doctor, what have we got? A republic or a monarchy?"

"A republic," replied Dr. Franklin, "if you can keep it."

Paradigm Shift? (Reality Hurts)

The Berkeley City Council, after passing a resolution calling for the resettlement of detainees released from Guantanamo in the United States, voted against inviting such persons to live in their fair city, according to the San Jose Mercury News. Earlier, an organization called “Move America Forward, proposed in a statement that Berkeley City Council members ‘go live in GITMO where they can hang out with hundreds of terrorists.’ The group said it would pay for their air fare.”

I think that the only place that terrorists should live is BERKELEY, CALIFORNIA. Put some kind of shock collars on them and park them in Berkeley where they will find friends -- infidels to be sure, that they're going to want to kill -- but willing victims.


Nir Rosen, who scoffed at reporter, Lara Logan’s assault in Tahrir Square, was fired from his position as fellow at the NYU’s Center on Law and Security. Jim Geraghty at the National Review says he never thought to see the day, but is glad the Center on Law and Security did it anyway.... Liberals eating their own for one of their number making fun of a newspaper reporter who was raped like an animal being eaten alive by wolves? What is the liberal world coming to?

A succession of recent events, from the financial crisis to the wave of unrest sweeping the Middle East, has created a new sense of mortality in everyone. Dick Morris, in an article titled “The Damage Obama Has Done,” presents a table, which while not entirely the best source for identifying the various factors which went into causing the change, nevertheless gets the point across: reality hurts. Reality is not something that liberals are used to dealing with.


Families in suburban Yorba Linda, California were shocked when Islamic terrorists held a fundraiser at their community center. Read about it on AMERICAN PERSPECTIVE. Things look different to frightened 40-60 something year old people facing an uncertain future than to 18 year olds at Yasgur’s farm on their way to Paradise. 

Maybe some sense of perspective is coming to the world? Again, REALITY HURTS.

Berkeley is indeed stuck in the 60s. Good place for the terrorists to be. I like that idea. Can't stand the place.

The radical muslims have no idea about messing with Americans. No idea at all.

Liberals? Weirdos are more like it. I don't get them at all. The most hateful folks on the planets...right behind muslims.

Have a terrific day. :)

I'm certain that the Berkeleyans would have indoctrinated the GITMO detainees to become peaceful, freedom loving activists for the SEIU in no time.

I'm sure that terrorists would feel right a home in SEIU!

You might notice that Berkeley is not in Alabama.

I wish that somebody would move Berkeley to Alabama. Those left wing whackos need to be taught manners.
