    A round-up of Op-Eds from The Heritage Foundation

    Job Jitters – James Sherk
    America has faced much more serious problems in the past. If you have a job today that isn’t directly affected by housing markets or energy prices, you have little to fear from reports of rising unemployment.[...]

    Mr. Smith Didn’t Do This – Michael Franc

    A Tale of Two Hackers – Andrew Grossman
    Consider two cases. In one, a suburban housewife posed as a teenage boy on MySpace to learn more about her daughter’s on-again, off-again friend.

      Sad day for we the people! Another billion dollar bailout, and we, "the great unwashed", get stuck with the bill. The people responsible for this are one's on the committee.

      O well, come Nov. I will once again have the opportunity to vote against every politian on the ballot with experience in knowing how to pass the buck.

    Big Government Is NOT the Answer

    Your tax dollars are being spent on programs that we really don't need.
