"“Not a smidgeon of corruption”? My God, the whole thing was a pluperfect example of nothing BUT pure corruption, complete corruption, from start to finish and top to bottom. Obama’s preposterous assertion was never anything but laughable on its face, and was itself an example of his own sense of invulnerability, and his smug contempt for not just the rule of law but the American public itself."
"Make no mistake: the weaponization of the IRS by the Obama junta and its deployment to harass people guilty of nothing whatsoever was a crime—a despicable one, a heinous one, a legally-actionable one, and one that should never have been dismissed, denied, excused, or accepted by any real American. "
Read the whole thing, but note there is strong language:
Mark Steyne quote:
"... that’s because America isn’t an empire. And one can have arguments about that..... But Americans don’t have an imperialist bone in their body. And they just give to the world. They give to the world. Who is it, when the tsunami strikes, who is it who comes in and restores the water supply? It’s an American task force..."
"The revisionist autopsies of American history and the guides to sensitively calling your uncle a racist are about substituting resentment for thankfulness."
Excellent article, but be warned about strong language:
The concepts and proofs of the benefits of free trade are not "religious", they are the result of actual study, debate, and evidence.
As usual, read the whole thing:
Multiculturalism should not be used against people as a weapon, it should be ingrained within everyone who values liberty. The U. S. was founded and settled by people of many cultures, and that pattern should continue.

From Professor Boudreaux, on the subject of "tilted playing fields" in international trade:
" Beijing’s subsidies and tariffs, by obliging the Chinese people to spend more than necessary to acquire imports, force the Chinese people to run uphill economically. We Americans (and others who buy Chinese exports) do, as you say, play on a tilted field, but it is one tilted in our favor. We get to run downhill."
