When Nice is Wrong

IDAHO FREEDOM FOUNDATION CRITICIZED It appears the Idaho Freedom Foundation (IFF) is doing a fine job since they are stirring the ire of the neoconservatives and progressives who believe more government is the answer to all our problems and ‘don’t get it.’ It is pathetic to see bloggers criticizing the IFF for rating the voting […]
