Through out the history of our nation, since it?s founding in the fire of revolution in 1776, we have spent more time at war through either actual fighting or in proxy wars, than we have at peace.
We have fought wars against almost every major European power, including ones who are now our allies, such as Britain, France, Spain, Germany, Italy, as well as nations that are still not so friendly such as Russia.

I’ve joined the ranks of Twitters for the last week or so and it is quickly becoming an obsession. In those few days I have begun following about 350 people and have gained a following of 150. If you don’t know, Twitter is like a cross between an instant messenger service and bloging. Your limited to only 140 characters per post and is sometimes called micro-blogging.
In the last week one of the things I have learned from Twitter is…
That@johnleonardo and a few others seem to have some odd obsession with President Obama’s teleprompter usage, even though it doesn’t appear as if he has used it any more than other Presidents before him. It might be that they are seeing it more because Obama actually talks to people on a regular basis. The have even created a fake twitter persona called @BOTeleprompter.
@michellemalkin: seems to have become the first celebrity to ever reply to one of my tweets. I’m not sure exactly how I feel about that. This is how it went.
@michellemalkinVery effective that almost all GOP house members have text of Dodd/Treasury/Obama provision in poster form/on paper. Driving the point home.
@vastvariety: @michellemalkin If it’s all Dodd and Obama’s fault what was Paulson and Bush responsible for in September when the first money went to AIG?
@michellemalkin:@vastvariety They all have dirty hands, and I have said so many, many times.
@vastvariety: @michellemalkin They do Indeed.
