Here's a killer cranberry sauce recipe...easy too. Take a package of Ocean Spray whole cranberries, mix in about one cup of sugar and some orange zest.

The alcohol burns off so no worries for non-drinkers. But what is left is a smoky, rich tasting sauce that everyone will love.
Last Friday, a man in North Carolina was killed by a drunk driver.
(The MSM has ignored this story for reasons which will be obvious in a moment but the local story can be found here.)

Sometimes I think we earnest reformers in the cause of saving America should retire to the nearest drinking establishment and let the obnoxious opposition do the heavy lifting.
Is not the annoying Tamar Jacoby our secret weapon, particularly when she appears on television? Her message of open borders appeasement, delivered in a high-decibel shreik, surely propels many fence-sitters to the side of order and sovereignty. You go girl!
Just recently, the National Republican Congressional Committee posted a nationwide survey on their website-- The 2005 Impact of Illegal Immigration Survey.
Congressional Republicans are designing their legislative agenda for 2006 and the results from this survey will help them prioritize the issue because apparently, none of them actually live in the United States...you know, with the 12 million illegal aliens they mention in their first question!
