Dirty Bomb Diaries

Came across Dirty Bomb Diaries on YouTube today.  Looks like a video blog diary drams style online series about what would happen if a bomb went off in your city.  Seems to be along the lines of Discovery's recent reality based series on the same subject.  The trailer looks good and Im going to watch the rest when I get a chance.

Thoughts of the Founding Fathers

It would help many Americans to go back and study the words and works of our Founding Fathers, they are just as relevant today as ever.

     ...."if men were angels, no government would be necessary and if angels governed men, no limits on government would be necessary. Because neither men nor the governments they create are angelic, government and limits on government are both necessary for ordered liberty. Politics may tell us what we want to do, but the Constitution tells us what we may do and we must keep those separate. The ends do not justify the means for one simple reason – liberty. Liberty requires limits on government power, it always has and it always will.
