Like almost any American who was alive and old enough to realize what was going on, I remember exactly where I was when John F. Kennedy was assassinated. I was sitting in a classroom when the principal came over the public address system to tell us the terrible news. Even as a young boy I […]

All of the bickering about shutting down the government has politicians and everyday citizens pointing fingers and passing the blame around, depending on who they claim allegiance to. But what you have to understand is that it is not a Democrat or a Republican problem. It’s a party problem. And as long as we have […]

I think President Obama could be setting a bad precedent with his statement last week that Israel return to its pre-1967 borders, and return lands taken in the Six Day War in 1967 to Palestinian control. Those lands include the West Bank, Gaza Strip, Golan Heights, and Sinai Peninsula. “We believe the borders of Israel […]

So now both Donald Trump and Mike Huckabee have announced that they won’t be running for President in 2012, opening the field up to former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney and whoever wants to challenge him for the Republican nomination. The talking heads on TV are asking themselves if this will be the year Sarah Palin […]

A few days ago, Arizona Governor Jan Brewer signed a bill into law that makes the Colt Single Action Army revolver the state’s official firearm. This makes Arizona the second state in the country to have an “official” firearm. In March, Utah made the Browning semi-automatic pistol its official state firearm. Brownings are made in […]

Tuesday the American people sent a clear message to their elected officials that they are unhappy with the way things are going, and they don’t want to go down the road we have been taking. Now, it is up to those newly elected, and to those who retained their offices, to listen to that message. […]
