anony14largepopupWhen the federal government didn’t like the information that the non-profit Wikileaks was releasing, they leaned on PayPal with all the weight of the federal government. Almost instantly, PayPal caved to the pressure and joined Visa and MasterCard in refusing to process donations for Wikileaks.

Conservative Circle Jerk

Posted on June 28th, 2011 by Ben Spera

I’m so tired of hearing about Sarah Palin and Michelle Bachmann. Neither of them have done anything more than pay a little lip service to conservative principles, yet so many seem to have ordained them as conservative saints.

What have either of them done to be deserving of so much attention? Bachmann voted for the Patriot Act! Why some are so easily duped into jumping on political bandwagons every year is beyond me. They are only setting themselves up for future disappointment when these two end up being nothing more than two more establishment RINO’s who found a convenient crown to pander to.
