    Many have remarked on the messed up fonts now appearing in so many posts. This can be avoided, though it is a bit of a bother. These bad fonts stem from cutting and pasting apostrophes (') and quotation marks ("). The marks produced from cutting and pasting these marks has always looked different from those caused by hitting the key on one's keyboard. Up until now, though, when posted they have been turned into apostrophes and quotation marks. That is no longer happening. While typing the marks on one's keyboard continues to work fine, cutting and pasting them does not....

    The Southern Poverty Law Center has released its annual report on "The Year in Hate and Extremism," in which the organization estimates the size of the "extremist" threat. Since its count of hate groups has dropped since last year—the number went down from 1,018 to 1,007—the center is hyping a 7 percent increase in another category: what it calls "conspiracy-minded antigovernment 'Patriot' groups." The SPLC's definition of "Patriot" is pretty broad: The list ranges from the conservative websites WorldNetDaily and to the Moorish Science Temple and its offshoots. The Moors, a black militant movement, are presumably included because they...

    Except for his unfortunate go along to get along support of TARP, bailouts, stimulus spending and the increased credit limit, etc, Ryan is a pretty good choice. Probably the best choice of the RINOS that were on Romney's short list. I support Ryan for the vice presidency. Wish he were at the top of the ticket, though. But I still cannot and will not support the grand father of ObamaCare. Romney still loves and brags about his bastard brainchild, RomneyCare, even today when he knows what an anti-liberty socialist POS it is. And the fact that he advocated that abortion...
