But most men, even if they don’t have the cajones to say so, don’t look at the feminist movement or the changes that have occurred over the last decades the same way that women do.

Apparently, for some commentators, people at a capitol building holding signs is inherently “grassroots.” However, beyond the superficial similarity of people protesting, there is nothing these union demonstrations have in common with the Tea Party.

Contrary to what the Left says, it is not a sign of mental disturbance to believe that President Obama is deliberately fomenting crises in order to advance his radical agenda. The evidence is there for anyone who cares to look. There is a plan to smash America’s longstanding institutions and render the U.S. Constitution meaningless. And as Wisconsin goes, so goes the nation.
