  • “GOP Completely Fixes the Economy By Cancelling Funding For NPR”

    The Onion reports:  Unemployment plummeted and stocks soared Tuesday after Republican leaders fulfilled their promise to cut funding for National Public Radio, a budgetary move that has completely rejuvenated the flagging U.S. economy. [said] Sen. Mark Kirk (R-IL), by eliminating funds for NPR, the deficit has been slashed by 0.000004 percent and a newly thriving …

  • Defunding NPR is a distraction

    The recent firing of Juan Williams from NPR has been all over the news, particularly FOX news, this past weekend. I decided to read further into the outrage over his firing and found that the campaign to defund NPR is merely a way for FOX news to bash NPR as a liberal broadcast among other …

  • Those Condemning State’s Rights as “Racist” Should Read More and Talk Less

    The  NPR guy who interviewed Tom Woods last week is not an anomaly. The first thing many of these MSM types think of when nullification is brought up is racism and Jim Crow. That’s rather odd, given that no one is advocating nullification be used to strike down federal laws abolishing forced segregation. On the contrary, nullification would be used …

  • Tom Woods Gives the Hardcore Case for Nullification — on NPR

    The anti-state, anti-war, pro- market Tom Woods is a great example of principle paying off. Not only is his unapologetic style brave, but politically smart — at least in building longterm coalitions of true believers.  Tuesday on NPR, he gave a mainstream audience the unadulterated case for nullification of immoral and unconstitutional federal laws. It’s great that he countered the ridiculous speculation of …

  • Taxpayer Money Used To Ridicule “Teabaggers”

    Sponsered by none other than the notorious, state-affiliated National Public Radio (NPR). I’m wondering if there is any attempted intelligent message behind this humorless video?  In a new video posted online, NPR called teapartiers “teagbaggers.”  The mockery on the NPR webiste begins with : Learn to speak teabag. Finally, learning a new language doesn’t have to …

    He has made it to NPR’s final four. Voting continues until Friday.

  • Vote Ron Paul!

    …in NPR’s political primary tournement; you can vote once per day. Dr. Paul is currently heading toward the final four.  There’s also still time to continue voting for him in the Time 100 poll, where he’s currently ranked fifth out of over 200.

  • A Rebirth of Keynesianism?!

    As I was flipping through the radio last night, that’s what I heard on NPR: that all of a sudden, Keynesianism was making a comeback. I know I shouldn’t expect too much from state-sponsored radio, but really, where have they been the last century? The philosophy of deficit spending, government working to stimulate industry, the …
