At least ten lawmakers who voted in favor of the health care bill received threats of death and violence in the wake of the bill’s passing. What the hell is wrong with people in this country? There was a time when Americans were a united people, and while we may not have always liked what […]

Back in my Army days, my company commander had the above words in a frame on the wall behind his desk. Captain Edgerton told me that people spend way too much time thinking about how to handle a situation, talking about how to handle it, and arguing about how to handle it. He wanted his […]
