Gimme Edward Snowden

Secretary of State John Kerry calls Edward Snowden a “coward” for individually facing down the U.S. government in order to expose the unconstitutional regime of Big Brother spying against Americans set up under George W. Bush.

This month, our domestic political donation goes to The Partnership for Civil Justice in recognition of [...]

Yesterday afternoon, James Delingpole e-mail blasted his latest of 365 Ways to Drive a Liberal Crazy:

Trey Gowdy Gets A Different Sort Of Free Coffee From His Bank

Big money and lavish coddling for Trey Gowdy from the banking industry comes just a year and a half after banks received huge amounts of money in bailouts from the federal government. [...]

Coffee Grounds and Gardening: Don’t Do it for the Acid

In a recent segment on NPR’s Science Friday, gardening expert Shawn Verrall rejected that the old habit many of us have of dumping our coffee grounds on plants that need acid. According to Verrall, the act of brewing coffee takes most of the acid out of the grounds.

I’d heard the coffee grounds advice from [...]

How To Make Dandelion Coffee
