Liberty on Tap since 1984
In my continuing mission to educate Illinois legislators about The Zion Station, on the opening day of the IL General Assembly I shared Part Three with them, which offer insight into how the energy situtation back in 1998 when Zion was shuttered is not the same as it is today.
Later in the day I received news from "Crain's Chicago Business" that the state Senate narrowly passed legislation easing the way for the construction…Continue

Publius-Huldah has written another masterpiece "Judicial Abuse of the Fourteenth Amendment: Abortion, Sexual Orientation & Gay Marriage". I decided late last night that this would be the subject I would write about today. Then I read one more article at American Thinker that changed my mind and I was up most of the night writing on a…Continue

I surrender. The last thing I wanted to talk about today was anything that could be remotely related to the Tucson tragedy. I went to all my usual sources, both conservative and liberal, looking for the inspiration that I can normally find with only a little effort for a subject to write about in my blog. Apparently, the only subject anyone is talking about is the Tucson tragedy. So who am I to buck the trend.
Surely as night follows day, there will be…Continue
This is journalism? What kind of softball set up is "What is this about?" Was the question referring to the reading of the Constitution on the floor of the people's house? Or ,as a dimly lit clown, Joy…Continue

That's a pretty long title, isn't it? I suppose that if I had a more creative mind I could have come up with something shorter. But for now, this title will have to do.
Two recent articles by Thomas Sowell caught my attention and caused me to think about vote-buying, the price of success, and the killing of the golden goose. If any of you are not familiar with the works of Thomas Sowell, you need to visit his Website and read his articles at your leisure.…Continue

Two different takes on the hot issue of Islam and Islamophobia came out of Human Events yesterday. The first is an article by Robert Spencer which asks the question "Are Muslims Being Victimized in America Today?". It seems that Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), an organization often linked to Hamas. Mr. Spencer fills us in:
Attacks on the American Muslim…

During the Christmas media lull, the EPA announced that it had fined a Colorado company $230,000 for improperly
distributing pesticides. The EPA is tasked with ensuring that people are safe
from dangerous chemicals and pollution, so a company that ignores the importance
of pesticide regulations should be punished, right? Well, in this instance, the
‘pesticide’ is a pair…
Last Friday, I read an article in the Washing ton Post by C. Boyden Grey on Dodd-Frank financial reform law that was passed in June. Admittedly I didn't know a whole lot about the Dodd-Frank legislation but I assumed that if it were written by Dodd and Frank, there couldn't be much good in it.
Mr. Grey sees Dodd-Frank as a real threat to the constitution. If…Continue
