When 140 Characters Isn't Enough
As a 9 or 10 year old, my knowledge of the situation was limited. Therefore, I can not pass judgment on the adults. I do not know what was done or not done to rescue my cousin Glen, a little boy who was severely abused by his mom, my late aunt Bummie (a nickname). My dad threatened to report Aunt Bummie to the…Continue

I live in Shelby County, Alabama, one of the fastest growing counties in the country. We are also considered to be one of the reddest with 6 out of 7 of our House representatives and both senators being Republican, as well as our governor. Republicans also hold the majority of the state legislature since 2010 (first time in 100 years).
That said, allow me to point you directly to the voting record of our congressman, Spencer Bachus. In fact, I would invite interested parties to…

My patriot sister, Tea Party leader and Conservative Darla Dawald is running for Arizona State Representative LD 8. I met Darla a few years ago when we traveled together on Tea Party Express national bus tours.
A featured speaker at the…Continue

The administration has decided that, with the end of the military’s mission in Afghanistan, we no longer need a capable armed force. A year and a half ago, it was ” Bin Ladin is dead and Al Qaeda is on the run”, so obviously, there are no terrorist threats in the world today. In Afghanistan, Hamid Karzai has solved all the problems of the region to the point that they no longer require any military assistance. The Olympics are over and all the world is at peace!

The Federal Communication Commission wants to launch a study called the “Multi-Market Study of Critical Information Needs”. The FCC wants to determine what news stories get chosen for airing and how they are chosen. To find the answers to these questions, they want to put monitors in local TV and radio newsrooms. Does this sound harmless to you? Maybe, until you realize that places government officials in the radio and television stations many of you watch. Maybe it sounds harmless, until…Continue

I have a bumper sticker on my truck that says “American Pride”. Actually, it’s not on my truck’s bumper, but on the toolbox. This is the toolbox in which I carry my tools from one job site to another. For the most part, I enjoy what I do, but, there are some days that are tougher than others. Regardless of whether or not it was a good job or a tough job, ultimately, I have pride in the job I’ve done.
This feeling may soon become a thing of the past. Last week, the Congressional…Continue

I’ve offered commentary before about the heritage of hunting and the need for its preservation, but those who value this practice should understand the full scope of this task at hand.
For most considerations toward historical preservation, it’s only necessary to build public awareness of such a need and to secure plans for restoration.
In the case of hunting preservation, these things are needed, but beyond that, a war of ideas and influence is being waged between preservation…Continue

Enough is enough ! I have had it with these monkey fighting squirrels on this Monday through Friday plane !
In April 2013, fourteen members of Congress signed a letter to the Department of Homeland Security saying that the preclearance facility in Abu Dhabi “sets the dangerous precedent” of deploying customs resources based on third-party financing…

Are you wondering if there's any Egyptian military forces about an hour away, ready and willing to drop on a hot LZ and get their people out ?
I'd bet the answer to that is a resounding 'yes we…

Recently, I’ve heard some resounding influential voices of the Republican Party repeating that tired old line that we must, as a party, all get along, regardless of our differences.
To a point, I would agree that this is true. We of the GOP do need to be careful not to “strain on a gnat, to swallow a camel,” as the old expression goes.
That said, if we are still a party that believes in the traditions of our founding and the Constitution, we do need to hold true…Continue
Liberal's reaction to Omaha Nebraska police exposing the ignorant thug mindset behind the shocking video of a black toddler cursing is yet another example of liberals getting it all wrong; all about making themselves feel good – tolerant, superior and…Continue
Shortly before Congress left for its Christmas break, Paul Ryan (R-Wi) and Patty Murray(D-Wa) unveiled their budget deal for the next two years. It was a bad deal for many reasons, but one of the worst reasons was the fact that one of the funding mechanisms for the bill was a cut in the cost of living adjustment of veterans, including those of disabled veterans. This provision was to increase revenues some six billion dollars. Once this was pointed out, both Ryan and Murray claimed that…Continue

If, as a country, the U.S. believes it holds the obligation or selfishness to place its women on the front lines in combat, is this progress or a sad commentary as to the decline of moral obligation?
The U.S. Marine Corps is now deliberating as to whether or not to lower the standard for basic training for women, among whom, 55% are unable to perform the standing 3 pull-ups minimum standard.

It is not looking good for the Tea Party and our efforts to restore America in 2014. The Obama Administration, mainstream media, major liberal advocacy groups and the GOP establishment have launched an extremely well-funded war against us.…Continue

Pleasantly surprised and a bit shocked, I enjoyed religious Christmas Carols played in the elevator of a major hotel. Progressive bullies are relentless in their quest to repeal the celebration of Jesus' birthday, Christmas, declared a federal holiday in 1870 by President Ulysses S. Grant.…Continue
Three years ago, Nancy Pelosi said that we had to pass the bill to see what was in it. Well, those who weren’t paying attention back then are now finding out why we had to pass the law first, before the people could find out what terrible things were in the bill. Many of us knew what was to become of the best healthcare in the world and were ignored or worse. To paraphrase Barack Hussein Obama’s pastor, the chickens are coming home to roost.
We were told by every Democrat that…Continue

Last Tuesday, the House Judiciary Committee held a hearing on the President’s Constitutional duty to faithfully execute the laws, as laid out in the US Constitution in Article II, Section 3. The speakers for the hearing were, Michael Cannon, a director for health policy affairs at the Cato Institute and Jonathon Turley, the Shapiro Professor of Public Interest Law at George Washington University. Together, they blasted the President’s execution of Obamacare, or, more accurately, his…Continue
