If you have kids who use computers, Carla Rolfe has some good advice for you.

Walter Williams writes, "Benjamin Franklin had it right when he wrote, '[T]he best way of doing good to the poor, is not making them easy in poverty, but leading or driving them out of it.' Government dependency makes poverty easy."
Dependency on government

Albert Mohler writes on judicial actvism, a topic that has increased relevance with the resignation of Sandra Day O'Connor.
The Supremacists - A Judiciary Out of Control

"The upcoming Supreme Court confirmation battles in the wake of the retirement of Justice Sandra Day O'Connor are seen by too many people in terms of the Senate's comity and consensus. You can always get a consensus by surrendering." Thomas Sowell is on target again. He states further, "The media add to the confusion by constantly labeling judges 'liberal,' 'conservative' or 'moderate,' rather than distinguishing judges who are activists who ad lib versus judges who follow the laws as written, including the Constitution.
"That is the distinction that will determine whether this country will live under the rule of law as a self-governing people or whether we will continue to become more and more subject to the fiats of unelected judges. That issue trumps comity, consensus and particular policy issues combined."
Judicial havoc & Judicial havoc part II

Cal Thomas adds to the discussion of the upcoming court nomination. "We hear this President Bush has learned a lot from the mistakes of his father. Does this include naming a justice that reflects his often-stated views about wanting someone on the bench who doesn't make law, but rather upholds the Constitution? We are about to find out."

I enjoy reading your sites. Even when you don't have much to say, you're still entertaining. Not that that happens very often.
