Freedom of religion is very different from freedom of worship. Communist countries have freedom of worship, as long as they are silent in the public square. Are we headed there too?
Who is to blame? All together now "Its Bush's fault".
I am going to be driving through Arizona on my way to the left coast. I am white and a citizen of the United States will I be profiled?. Also, what papers do I need to take if I am stopped by the authorities?
Bank of America crashed our economy. We bailed them out. Now, they're back to business as usual raking in huge profits and giving themselves record bonuses.

Back in the day before airline regulation the plane would be on time, the plane was not crowded, meals were served with silverware even in coach and there was no charge for baggage whether carry on or checked.
