The Patriot Post

I don't know how many of you keep up with the news, but I definitely find it difficult to stay on top of what's happening outside my tiny little sphere. If anyone is looking for a great way to know what's happening and here about it from a Constitutionally conservative point of view, check out The Patriot Post. They have quotes from and links to the news on their site during the week, and on Friday they publish an original Digest that reviews the news from the week. You can read the Friday edition in about 30 minutes--that gets an A+ in my book! I can be relatively well informed and only have to sacrifice 30 minutes! Oh, and they don't have any advertisements (for anyone but themselves!) on their site.
For instance, in reading this week's Patriot Post, I learned of the commander in Afghanistan's plea for more troops and the ensuing outcry by the media (yes, I REALLY don't listen/watch/read news very much during the week.) Here's what the Patriot Post has to say about it:
"For our part, we believe Gen. McChrystal understands the score very well in Afghanistan. Having weighed the options, he took a calculated gamble to use the media to place the onus on Obama to follow through with his stipulated policy. Gen. McChrystal and, more importantly, his troops lose that gamble only if he receives just enough support from the Obama administration not to get the job done. Of course, that would never happen -- right?"
The Patriot Post is definitely a "finer thing" so I'm linking to Finer Things Friday.

  1. My history/government teacher hubby keeps me posted, but I'm TERRIBLE about keeping up with current events.
