When he was 17 years old, he started blogging - of course about America. His articles have been published at Big Hollywood, Pajamas Media, Hot Air (the GreenRoom) and Right Across The Atlantic.

New Jersey Governor Chris Christie once again proves himself to a prime example of fiscal conservatism with an attitude:

It seems to me that Christie has read Saul Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals as well and that he’s using some of the Left’s favorite tactics against them. In this case, I am – of course – referring to rule 13: Pick the target, freeze it, personalize it, and polarize it. As Alinsky explained in his notorious handbook for (radical) community organizers: “..any target can always say, ‘Why do you center on me when there are others to blame as well?’ When your ‘freeze the target,’ you disregard these [rational but distracting] arguments…. Then, as you zero in and freeze your target and carry out your attack, all the ‘others’ come out of the woodwork very soon. They become visible by their support of the target… One acts decisively only in the conviction that all the angels are on one side and all the devils on the other.”

Is this man doing a great job, or what?
