Conspiracy Theorist: 09/08

Saved from democracy Dayton’s rulers save Greek Festival and DAI’s Oktoberfest By Mark Luedtke Churchill once said, “Democracy is the worst form of government, except for all those other forms that have been tried from time to time.” Americans have been brainwashed into believing that.

Fascism is socialism Mark Luedtke   You have to give leftists credit. They masterfully muddy, smear, change and destroy the definition of words. In the most obvious recent instance, “gay” used to mean happy. Now it means homosexual. How they changed that meaning, I’ll never know. Possibly the first and most fundamental was the change […]

Presidential Idol By Mark Luedtke I admit I watched the entire Republican Party debate in Cleveland the other night.

Please tip your waitstaff By Jim Bucher   This is a subject I’ve wanted to write about for quite some time: Tipping.
