Dora the Census Explorer

Children, spy on your family. BTW, funny to see the constant stress in census propaganda about “getting good things for our town, like day care centers and schools.” That is, in return for your written nudo-scan, politically connected businessmen can get richer constructing more federal anti-family indoctrination halls at your expense.

The Politics of Obammunism

The Obammunist’s socialized health care legislation promises to cut Medicare spending by hundreds of billions of dollars while increasing Medicare spending by hundreds of billions.

Eeek, a Dissident Idea

The most important job of regime intellectuals of all stripes, besides promoting wars past, present, and future, and anything else that enhances the glory, power, and centralization of the state, is to smear opponents.
