Man and Woman with subtext: "Why tell us about it?"

How can a pastor’s wife be so political? First, I come by it organically; my family is devotedly Republican, thus my roots. People I love and deeply respect have become involved politically, and they have made a difference. Real experience has not jaded my perspective.

“God is dead,” according to the existentialist Nietzsche. He might as well have been talking about Berkeley, California.

Think I’m exaggerating? Take a trip out west and spend a few days on Telegraph Avenue. Then wander over to the downtown area, Shattuck and University. If you’re really the daredevil, do so after dark, when the mean streets look positively Kafkaesque.

Conservative Ari David talks about his first SEIU meeting as a Republican candidate for Congress. …. This is comedy gold.”

Earlier this week Major General Paul E. Vallely endorsed Ari David for Congress.

Please contribute to Ari David for Congress here.

I love to read Gateway Pundit’s Jim Hoft.  Cutting edge on news stories, very seldom wrong (if he has been I haven’t seen it) and he’s good-natured.  So grateful that he is such a gift that keeps on giving to “news wonks”.
