Meeting of Old White Guys Who Wish They Lived in the 18th Century

Today's signing of the terrifically vague Mt. Vernon
Statement brought together a bunch of old right-wingers who love Ed
Meese and miss Ronald Reagan and think change is scary so they hope to
save us from it. Sad, silly tripe.

"Some insist that America must change, cast off the old and put on the
new. But where would this lead - forward or backward, up or down? Isn't
this idea of change an empty promise or even a dangerous deception?"

This is the world we live in. This is the world we cover.
