...well, it seems we have two rules about this, and that's why we're in the mess we're in. Haystack has a great analysis up about the buried lies in the vote tonight on the Continuing Resolution, now that all the real numbers, and not the ones trumpeted to us last...

This is a serious question, for the answer to this question is easy. And for the most part, many Americans have made it. I was at the "Y" today, looking at our parking lot, which was filled because of the soccer matches going on next door. I noticed all the...
