Insurance Devils

by Brad Nelson11/13/17

There’s a reason I’m not a Democrat. People makes mistakes. And very often, those mistakes can be corrected. The world should not generally be completely re-ordered because something bad happened to one person, one time. No amount of laws and bureaucracy can ever keep one bad thing from happening to one person. More » • (125 views)

Pat’s Search for the Lost Conservative Island

by Brad Nelson11/13/17

In another thread (I tried to find it…it’s lost as well) we were talking about setting up our own Conservative Island of Utopia. I would be your benevolent banana-republic dictator.
