It was the Prothonotary Warbler that cooked Hiss’ goose!
November 8, 2007-"M. Stanton Evans talked about his book, Blacklisted by History: The Untold Story of Senator Joe McCarthy and His Fight Against Americas Enemies, published by Crown Forum. The author argued that Senator Joseph McCarthy does not deserve the bad reputation he has been assigned by historians, and that Senator McCarthy was correct in his assessment of the threat posed by Communists in the United States during the so-called Red Scare and that his detractors knowingly cover up the extent of this threat. After his presentation he responded to audience members' questions."
Fool didn't know that conservatism demands both small, and limited!
Today we have a government of near 10 million sucking the blood out of the population - 8 million federal and near 2 million state government pukes that do little to nothing for their lavish salaries - and near a third of them are tax delinquent!
For those that wonder how many state workers you're supporting - here's a list that was for last year.
TOTAL GOVERNMENT 1,919,700

Duh, today the Democrats have a Communist as their occupant in OUR White House. And yes, we are STILL anti-communist!
I'm glad somebody on TV is talking about communism as a threat. It's like communism is some kind of dead subject. The Soviet Union fell, so communism is dead and gone. And oh yeah, remember that crazy McCarthy guy who runied so many lives with his crazy right-wing knee jerk accusations? Right. Communists have taken over our education system, our major media centers, and now our government. But the subject of communism as a threat to our democratic republic is a total nothingburger to the general American intelligencia. (or should I say, un-intelligencia)
We got a guy at work, a liberal, focused like a laser beam on the threat of an emgergence of right-wing Nazi-like facism in our government. Communists have taken over the nation right under his nose, but he's still focused like a laser beam on the big threat of right-wing facism. He says he's not worried about communists at all. Brilliant fellow.
