Hornberger’s Blog, February 2004

Saturday, February 28, 2004 British Prime Minister Tony Blair is angry and outraged over the public disclosure by his former cabinet member, Clare Short, that British officials secretly and surreptitiously spied on UN Secretary General Kofi Annan. (As President Bush put it early on, in the war on terrorism, you’re either with us or against us, ...

Hornberger’s Blog, January 2004

Saturday, January 31, 2004 Given the fact that thousands of innocent people, including more than 500 American soldiers, have been killed in the effort to “disarm Saddam” of weapons of mass destruction that he didn’t possess, in retrospect wouldn’t it have been a lot better if President Bush had accepted Saddam Hussein's offer to settle their personal differences with

Hornberger’s Blog, December 2003

Wednesday, December 31, 2003 Our federal daddy is once again taking care of his adult-children, this time by banning the diet and bodybuilding supplement ephedra, which daddy says is dangerous. No, adult-children cannot be expected to make this decision themselves because daddy says that they are incompetent to do so, despite the fact that most of them are graduates of ...

Hornberger’s Blog, October, 2003

Friday, October 31, 2003 Dear Friends of FFF, Last week I traveled to St. Louis, Missouri, to deliver a speech entitled “The Moral Bankruptcy of U.S. Foreign Policy” to about 60 students at Washington University.

Hornberger’s Blog, September 2003

Tuesday, September 30, 2003 A couple of weeks ago, I wrote an article entitled “Federal Spending Threatens Our Security,” in which I pointed out that uncontrolled federal spending threatens the economic security and well-being of the American people. Since then, the U.S. dollar has taken a severe drop in international markets. An article in the September 29 issue of ...

Hornberger’s Blog, August 2003

Saturday, August 30, 2003 An article in the Atlanta Constitution-Journal points out that love is exposing the confusion within U.S. officials as to whether they invaded Iraq to liberate the Iraqi people or to occupy the country. Two Iraqi women have won the hearts of two American GIs, much to the dismay of military commanders. As flirtation led to ...

Hornberger’s Blog, July 2003

Thursday, July 31, 2003 In view of the guerrilla warfare that is being waged against the U.S. military occupation of Iraq, perhaps this is a good time to remind ourselves of how President Lincoln dealt with a similar wartime situation in the South, but only as a model for what should NOT be done in Iraq: As Tom LiLorenzo pointed out ...

Hornberger’s Blog, June 2003

Monday, June 30, 2003 Dear Friends and Supporters of FFF, As everyone knows, these are challenging times for the advocates of liberty and limited government.

Saturday, May 31, 2003 The feds have finally secured the conviction of Fabio Ochoa, who was a leader of one of the world’s most famous drug cartels in the 1980s -- the Medellin cartel, which was based in Colombia.

Hornberger’s Blog, April 2003

Wednesday, April 30, 2003 In the wake of televised tours of Saddam Hussein’s palaces, much ado has been made about his luxurious lifestyle, which might imply that the consequences of the economic sanctions that the U.S. government has enforced against Iraq for the past 12 years have operated only against the Iraqi people and not against Saddam. But I ...
