  • This is awesome: The Declaration of Independence, re-written as today’s liberals would have it. It opens with, “When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to strengthen the political bands which have connected them with the Global Community, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the cooperative and deferential station which a careful review of the relevant peer reviewed literature suggests is most appropriate for long term win-win outcomes, a decent and rigorously equal respect to the opinions of woman- and man- and transkind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the ever deeper union.”

  • Fred Thompson, who shepherded John Roberts through Senate confirmation as the Supreme Court’s Chief Justice, has trouble reconciling the ObamaCare decision with the man he knew.

  • GM’s share price has fallen to the point that U.S. taxpayers are in a $26.4 billion hole, and that doesn’t include the losses the federal government allowed the new GM to carry over from the old GM, reducing the company’s tax liability for years to come.

  • Wells Fargo Chairman and CEO Dick Kovacevich delivered a speech at Stanford where he recounted how Wells Fargo found itself taking TARP money even though the company didn’t need or want it: “…Hank Paulson turned to Chairman Bernanke, who was sitting next to him and said ‘Your primary regulator is sitting right here. If you refuse to accept these TARP funds, he will declare you capital deficient Monday morning.’ This was being said when we were a triple A rated bank. ‘Is this America?’ I said to myself.”
