    cross-posting this here, after adding it to The Soap Box:
    Hey TontoTeers, our dear buddy JettieG has returned from a mini-hiatus. She was welcomed back to WZ as I added this image for her.

    It takes a subtle jab at the rainbow coalition. Is the tail wagging the dog?

    I just added the course listing above … I could spend all day listening to them, truly a remarkable resource, thank you Hillsdale ;-D

  • Agent76

    Very nice and informative founding web page! Nice work Tonto, and I know it is not work, but a passion!

      Thank you, sorry for the delayed response … I need to add some more things to this :)
      They have been working me to death at my employ :(

      • Agent76

        I appreciate the response, but being a web site administrator as well, and working keeps us both busy. All that is needed is a thumbs up, and I will know you were here. Thanks’ Patriot!

    An image and a lesson from one of our Founders:
    h/t to The Looking Spoon

  • 1776 Freedom Fighter

    Tonto and friends, this portion of the site seems a bit quiet for now. I’ll add an image here which will capture some of the convictions from our Founders!

  • 1776 Freedom Fighter

    Hey Tonto, it just dawned on me: I’ve barely visited this powerful thread on your new site.

    Here’s an image from our Founders; enjoy!

    This is going to be a excellent addition to your already cool blog. I’d bet 75% of the U.S. population would fail a test on these materials. Anything anybody does to help wake up this ignorant, lazy population is a patriotic thing to do.

    “Liberals claim to want to give a hearing to other views, but then are shocked and offended to discover that there are other views.” – William F. Buckley, Jr.

    Awesome addition to your site, Tonto!

    • AAABTonto

      I don’t know how many people are aware of Hillsdale’s free online college courses, but I thought this would be a great way to promote them and their fundamentalist view of our Constitution … I will be adding more videos in the near future :)

        I’m looking forward to them…
