"Western civilization did not originate slavery, racism, warfare, or disease--but with America as its exemplar, that civilization created the antidotes. " -- Thomas Bowden in "Let's Take Back Columbus Day" at FoxNews
"Can it be that antitrust prosecution of Apple would serve no purpose other than punishing the company for its success? The evidence points in that direction." -- Thomas Bowden in "Apple Now Targeted for Success" at Investors.com
"By intervening in markets, bureaucrats succeed only in manufacturing the panic and unnecessary volatility they had hoped to prevent." -- John Hoenig in "How to Ruin the Stock Market" at SmartMoney
"Obama was correct when he said we are a nation of citizens bound by a set of values. But as to what those values are, he hasn't a clue. Sadly, many Americans don't, either." -- Charlotte Cushman in "Is America a Christian Nation?" at The American Thinker
