Mitt Romney wins Arizona and Michigan primaries
|"He did not congratulate Romney during his speech, suggesting bad blood between the two.."
The Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney has put his faltering campaign back on track, holding off a strong challenge from rival Rick Santorum in a tight primary race in Michigan and coasting to victory in Arizona. [...]
Santorum phoned Romney to concede before all the votes had been counted and then spoke in Grand Rapids, Michigan, to his own supporters. He did not congratulate Romney during his speech, suggesting bad blood between the two, and instead suggested he is in for the long run, boasting about the recent rise in his profile. "A month ago they did not know who we were. They know now," he said.
It was a rambling speech that ranged from a rallying cry for liberty from the British in revolutionary days to American debt.

Another fight Obama is 'willing to have'

In December of 2009, he introduced his plan to regulate the financial industry with a warning to Wall Street fat cats that "if they want a fight, that's a fight I'm willing to have." He used similar trash talk with respect to the Bush-era tax cuts for the wealthiest Americans, vowing that...

Signs that America has become a place where most everything is illegal
Do you think that you are free? Most Americans would still probably answer "yes" to that question, but is that really the case? In the film Edge of Darkness, Mel Gibson stated that "everything is illegal in Massachusetts". Well, the same could pretty much be said for the United States as a whole. Our lives are governed by millions of laws, rules and regulations and more are being piled on all the time...
