Thanks for the great links.

I can't wait for the battle over the Supremes to begin. During the past election, I was truthfully less concerned about who was in the White House than the effect that person would have over the appointments to the judiciary. The Men in Black have much more impact on our lives IMHO than the president does. Can you imagine what kind of yahoos Gore or Kerry would nominate to the bench?

*shudders in horror* Oh me. I don't even what to think about it! The Men in Black really do seem to wield a colossal amount of power. That is why it is so critical to elect the right president who will appoint pro life, strict constitutionalists to the bench.

I love your article on the deists. Not only do I NOT think it to be scary, but marvel at how close this religion featured in the article is to the one held by Washington, Adams, Jefferson, Madison, and Franklin.
