    North is better-known, of course, for his 1987 Iran-Contra testimony. I was working for a producer at ABC’s 20/20 that summer, and the hearings ran non-stop in the offices.

    But North’s undermining of the Constitution was hardly limited to running guns to Central America and selling arms under the table to terrorists. He was engaged in just the sort of scheming that Beck et al. impute to Obama.

      of their hysteria about FEMA camps: They were planning them, so of course we must be also right?  ::sigh::

      It's always a good bet when they start making accusations that we should investigate them for whatever they're accusing us of.

      And if we did they'd think we were magic or mindreaders, or something.
