Picture this; you live in a small southern town, you’re not rich, but you’re getting by, and life is good overall. But then, Mother Nature goes on a rampage, and everything you own is gone in seconds, leaving you with a pile of rubble where your home once stood. Now picture this; the Red Cross […]

If you turn a television on during the daytime, or watch any late night TV, you know how often viewers are bombarded with advertisement after advertisement telling them that if they have used just about any kind of prescription drug, fallen off a ladder, been in an accident, or ever had a hangnail, they can […]

Since the Obama administration has seen fit to sue the State of Arizona and take the teeth out of the state’s new immigration enforcement law, maybe it’s time to fight fire with fire.

Opponents of Arizona’s tough new law directed at illegal aliens claim that the bill is racist and will give police the right to harass every Hispanic person they encounter. What they refuse to admit is that much of our country is becoming a war zone, and a lot of the violence is being caused by […]

Last week Arizona Governor Jan Brewer ignited a firestorm of controversy when she signed the state’s tough new law, which makes it a state crime to be in the United States illegally. Under the new law, Arizona police officers have an obligation to question anyone they suspect is in the country illegally about their immigration […]

It really made me angry when I saw a news report the other day about the thousands of people who were displaced by Hurricane Katrina who are still living in government subsidized hotels, shelters and substandard FEMA trailers, while the Federal government twiddles its thumbs and doesn’t help them rebuild their lives. Somebody needs to […]
