From time to time I recommend other blog sites that I read regularly. When one of these fine folks cover a topic I can't cover, or offer a unique point of view or perspective, I recommend them to you all.
Today I recommend you read FREEDOM EDEN'S review of the current story about Harry Reid's land transactions.
BUT A WORD OF WARNING TO YOU BEFORE YOU ALL JUMP TO THE SITE!
FREEDOM EDEN is not for the faint of heart. Mary, the editor and author, is a Republican Right Wing Firebrand. She is a partisan of the highest order. Fair and balanced are not part of her vocabulary. Mary will kill me for saying that. But I mean she makes no pretense of giving a liberal or Democrat point of view.
Her website slogan says it all: Mary, Location: In a Blue State, in a Red State of Mind
Mary's posts are long, generally covering entire articles in depth and detail. She dissects and analyzes every word. Mary, like the old joke about DA's with a grand jury, could indict a ham sandwich.
By the same token the could make the New York Telephone Directory funny and interesting.
Once Mary gets you in her sights, the attack is withering.
A prolific writer, Mary's FREEDOM EDEN is rapidly becoming one of the "must read" sites in the blogosphere. I simply am astounded (and jealous) of her rapid growth in readership. My only claim is to say "I found her first."
I often disagree with her, but I still have great respect. When Mary talks, I listen.
Since 90% of my readership is liberal to progressive to far left, I ask you to view with an open mind and show her the same respect you've generally shown me.
Now, on to the topic at hand.....
Mary is really covering the Harry Reid land transaction scandal (or non-scandal as the case may be). And she's all over Harry like ham on rye.
- WASHINGTON (AP) -- Senate Democratic Leader Harry Reid collected a $1.1 million windfall on a Las Vegas land sale even though he hadn't personally owned the property for three years, property deeds show.
The complex dealings allowed Reid to transfer ownership, legal liability and some tax consequences to Brown's company without public knowledge, but still collect a seven-figure payoff nearly three years later.
Reid hung up the phone when questioned about the deal during an AP interview last week.
Mary feels like the main stream media is ignoring this story. I think she might be right. That's why I'm recommending it to you. Here's the link: Mary's FREEDOM EDEN
