LUCETTE LAGNADO:: My Mom’s American Liberation – WSJ

By LUCETTE LAGNADO No one who knew my mother Edith ever thought of her as an icon of American feminism. Yet with the passage of years I have become convinced that this is exactly what she was, though she never attended a protest or held a placard. Small, shy, seemingly passive, she was for decades a "stay-at-home Mom," that now-searing term used to describe what ... Go To Article

AMERICAN EXCEPTIONALISM:: Growing Out of Poverty – City Journal

GUY SORMAN The most significant events often escape media attention.

ECONOMY:: Small-town oil boom creates blue-collar capitalist | WashEx

By TIMOTHY P. CARNEY, 3.28.2012, Washington Examiner WILLISTON, N.D. -- The pumpjacks, like giant hammers slowly swinging against the big sky, start peppering the roadside 80 miles out from Williston. Closer in, the pumps, rigs and large oil tanks steadily replace barns and grain silos. About 50 miles out on US 2, the telltales appear of North Dakota's oil boom: ... Go To Article

ENERGY:: Review & Outlook: Big Oil, Bigger Taxes – WSJ

President Obama says he wants to end subsidies for what he calls "the fuel of the past," but lucky for him oil and gas will be the fuels of the future too. His budget-deficit blowout would be so much worse without Big Oil, because the truth is that this industry is subsidizing the government. Much, much worse, actually. The federal Energy Information Administration ... Go To Article

BRET STEPHENS:: In the Persian Gulf, A Vulnerable Fleet – WSJ

Aboard USS Bunker Hill It didn't take Chief Warrant Officer Jason Echevarria more than a glance through the ship's binoculars to figure out what the Iranian-flagged dhow 3,400 yards off the starboard beam wasn't doing. For one thing, the gaily colored boat was larger than the dhows that typically ply the confined waters of the Persian Gulf. Its deck was clear of ... Go To Article

STEPHEN MOORE:: What North Dakota Could Teach California – WSJ

By STEPHEN MOORE,  Williston, N.D. In his speech last week responding to high gas prices, President Barack Obama insisted that "we can't just drill our way out of" our energy woes. Actually, we can—and if the president wants proof, he should travel to boomtown USA: Williston, North Dakota. Williston sits atop the Bakken Shale, which will later this year be ... Go To Article

PENTAGON to Keep Rush Limbaugh on the Air – WSJ

Here is one battle the Pentagon is not going to fight: Rush Limbaugh. Many of Mr. Limbaugh’s sponsors have dropped him in the wake of his controversial comments calling a Georgetown Law student, Sandra Fluke, a “prostitute” and “slut” after she testified about her school health plan’s lack of contraceptive coverage. Despite the controversy, the ... Go To Article

SUPPORT RUSH LIMBAUGH:: MB Snow – PNN

The current dust up about Rush Limbaugh calling Sandra Fluke, the left's newest darling, "a slut and prostitute", is as ridiculous as anything I've ever witnessed the Democratic Party and their cohorts, the MSM, try to pull off. Unfortunately they seem to be winning but the real tragedy of the ongoing story is that they're trying to kick Rush off of Armed Forces Network ... Go To Article
