"A wise and frugal government which shall restrain men
from injuring one another, which shall leave them otherwise free to regulate their own pursuits of industry and improvement, and shall not take from the mouth of labor the bread it has earned. This is the sum of good government."
(Thomas Jefferson)

Who Would have Thought?

Late afternoon or early evening yesterday this site was attacked by someone adding Malware to one of the Widgets. All the widgets have been removed including the one that is suspected of causing the problem which has been tracked down.

We have been around with this site since the general election of 2008 and have gone after people like Ayers, Wright, Obama, Emanuel, Pelosi, Reid, Sink, and a host of other Democrats and not one time did we have Malware put on this site. We have emails and comments that are not very nice but the site itself was never attacked.

We were shocked to learn that we had Malware added for the first time yesterday which looks to have been added to a Widget that came from a 'conservative' website. Didn't take a genius after learning where it tracked to figure out which article had caused the Malware to be added -- DeMint: "I don't think people realize that we're borrowing money to pay back debt that is coming due." Call it circumstantial evidence because we don't have absolute proof but 2+2=4.

There is no way we are accusing the Senator of doing this but we know some of his supporters from other websites and wouldn't put it past any of them to do such a thing. If they think this is going to silence DfS, think again. We are more determined than ever to get out the facts. In fact, as much as we dislike what we have seen the Democrats do over the past four years, a Republican will be treated harsher by us as we hold them to a higher standard.

To people who don't like our commentary, don't read it but we will continue to shine the light of day on a lot of areas and if it hits a Republican then maybe they had better look in the mirror. One trait we cannot stand is 'arrogance' which has been the downfall of more than one politician over the years.

We are also not going to bow to any one group or threats but will continue to call it like we see it. There are two freedoms that are at stake -- Freedom of Speech and Freedom of the Press that should not be infringed. Anyone who adds Malware to shut down a site is pretty low and not what conservatives should stand for but over the years we have noticed there are conservatives who like liberals only believe in freedom of speech if it pertains to them and their agenda.

We will keep you posted on any other attacks but be assured we are not going away and this has only made us more determined to shine the light of day on what is happening in the world of government and politics.

Thanks for your support during the election cycle and reading our blog.
