Now this is rich. Drug cartel killers go into a casino in Monterrey, Mexico (140 miles south of the Texas Border) and pour gasoline on the carpet, setting fire to the casino and killing 53 people. Who does the President of Mexico, Felipe Calderon, blame. Yes, you guessed it, America.

"I get so sick of TV news and weather people complaining about the heat here. I'm sure they knew what it was like before they came here. If they don't like it, they can just move up north and give it a rest. I moved here because of the warmth and love it."

"Bernanke has so much as admitted he has nothing left in the toolbox to spur on the economy. That is because a socialist nanny state that Obama and the Democrats pine for is in direct conflict with a recovery. Can we get the Democrats to turn over the White House via mass resignations today?"

"In Dick Cheney's new book he sharply criticizes John McCain for doing absolutely nothing to help out President Bush in the bad financial situation we were in. So what's new?"

"Friday's racist headline, ‘Is Mesa a Hotbed for Extremists?' deliberately or ignorantly contributes to the false premise that people of color are entitled to their advocacy groups such as NAACP and LaRaza but whites are not. And you lose all credibility by quoting the discredited SPLC, which never saw an American patriot that they didn't call an extremist and intolerant. By falsely labelling Ralph Brandt's political party and others as hate groups, this lie becomes exhibit A in positively identifying their group as such. In the battle of ideas, juvenile name-callers reveal themselves to be inadequate and worse.

"Congressman Jeff Flake tells the Tribune that ‘defaulting on our country's debt would have been irresponsible,' and he adds that is exactly what he voted for. Does he want to be praised for being irresponsible?"
