The Land of the Free?

I cannot help but wonder what the results would be if one conducted a man on the street interview and asked the question “Why is July 4th a holiday?”. How many would respond that it is Independence Day? How many would even know what Independence Day is and why we celebrate it. We are the …

Big Government Concerns

Big Government is invading your privacy, is seizing your lands and taking your money. Big Government, whether it be Federal, State, or Local, are constantly and consistently infringing upon the rights of Citizens and for the most part, the citizens are powerless to do anything about it. What concerns me is how did we let …

Federal Government Abuse of Power

I have been watching with interest, and with growing concern, the chain of events as they unfold in Clark County, Nevada with regards to Cliven Bundy’s fight with the Federal Government. The back story is this: In 1993 the Bureau of Land Management, a federal government agency, declared public grazing land, owned by the State …

A New Cold War?

I don’t know about you, but for those of us who grew up during the age of the “Cold War” find the conditions in Russia under the leadership of Putin to be frightening.

Proudly May She Wave

I am outraged by a recent court decision that ruled that a Northern California High School acted appropriately when it ordered students to wear their shirts inside out. The shirts in question sported the American Flag and the school officials were concerned that the display of the flag would incite violence between American and Mexican …

P.C. Run Amok

I was recently informed of a concept that takes political correctness to a new extreme. When I first heard of the idea it was so ludicrous that I tended to discount it as just another urban myth. However, in all fairness to the person reporting it to me, I did my research and was astounded …

The More Things Change. . . . .

Recently my wife and I decided to watch a few episodes of an old TV series called The West Wing, via the magic of Netflix. The West Wing was originally broadcast on NBC from September 22, 1999 to May 14, 2006. The show chronicled the adventures of a Democrat president named Jeb Bartlett, and the misadventures of …

All Men Are NOT Created Equal!

All men are not created equal, and neither are women. You only need to spend the day at the beach to verify that fact. Our forefathers used the expression “All men are created equal”. This was an unfortunate choice of words because there are those in our society who take those words way to literally. …

Government, go away!

I don’t know about you, but I for one am getting quite tired of government intervention in my life. I am tired of government telling me how to drive my car, how to prepare my food, how to raise my kids, and telling me what I can, or cannot do in the privacy of my …
