Have you ever attended Vacation Bible School? Around here, we call it VBS and it is the time of the year, usually during summer vacation from school, that children gather at a local, or not so much, school to learn about the Bible and the principles it teaches. In the case of the VBS put on by our church, it is some children’s only opportunity to attend an event that is both educational and → Read More
Just when I think I have heard it all, our government comes along and considers something so foolish that I have to stand corrected. It’s not breaking news that our Southern border has been overran with illegal immigrants, from Mexico and all points South. Many of these illegal immigrants are children and they all make the claim they are fleeing violence and therefore, should be considered to be refugees. The Obama administration is likely → Read More
It’s been a while since I wrote about ObamaCare, but this is worthy of a post. We all know, if we will admit to the knowledge, that ObamaCare is a boondoggle. It is a massive federal program that is poorly designed and even more poorly conceived. It is an attempt to take over the health care system in America, out of the control of the patients and doctors and placing it in the control → Read More

This is something I really can not comprehend or fathom. Since the terrible attacks on 9-11, Americans have faced increased scrutiny and security when they travel. Focused mainly at airports, Americans have been subjected to everything in between taking off their shoes and having their persons searched in a very intrusive manner. Some have even went through the body scanners that anyone who has traveled loves to hate. The indignities have been great and → Read More
Contrast the steely style of a real leader with Obama in the wake of Jetliner shootdown!
According to the New York Times the Obama Administration has clear evidence that Russia supplied the missile system that shot down the Malaysian Airlines flight 17 over Ukraine. Thus far, Obama’s reaction has been to mention the atrocity briefly during a photo op before heading off to fundraisers and a longer statement at a White House press briefing. → Read More
Comment in presidential debate reveals just how out of touch Obama really is!
Remember this from the 2012 presidential debates?
OBAMA: “Governor Romney, I’m glad that you recognize that al-Qaeda is a threat, because a few months ago when you were asked what’s the biggest geopolitical threat facing America, you said Russia, not al-Qaeda.”
Actually, Obama was wrong about that as the Washington Post Fact Checker points out. Romney said Russia was our → Read More
This is the kind of story that infuriates me to no end. Shaneen Allen is a 27-year-old woman from Philadelphia that is doing her best to raise her two children. She is working two jobs to help do that. She had been robbed twice while traveling alone at night in Philadelphia, so at the suggestion of her family, she took a gun safety course and received a concealed carry permit. So far, so good. → Read More
There are some things in this world that can always be depended on. For instance, we know the IRS will always be coming after your money. Even death can not stop their incessant grabbing for more and more tax dollars. We also know liberals will always blame conservatives for the very things they are doing themselves. That is a proven fact. And Islam? For the most part, the followers of Islam have but one → Read More
Remember when Barack Obama promised his administration would be the most transparent presidency in American history? Yes, he really said that. Do you think he has lived up to that promise? Let’s do a little math and see. The IRS investigates conservatives, the EPA tries to implement rules to garnish your wages, the entire administration contrived to hide what happened in Benghazi, Obama himself implemented the DREAM Act via Executive Order, the list could → Read More
As is usually the case with liberals, President Obama had a predictable response when faced with the latest crisis in his administration. Somewhere upwards of 60,000 illegal immigrant, many of them children, and that’s just the ones we know about, have swarmed the border in the past several weeks. When realizing there was a crisis, in between photo ops, golfing trips, and vacations, President Obama vowed to fix the problem himself, if Congress refused → Read More
If you have read many of my posts, you will know I am not a fan of big government. I have railed against it on more than a few occasions and I firmly believe the quote from Thomas Jefferson in the above picture is true. Most bad government comes from having too much government. For the most part, it does not work the way its champions claim it will. Time after time, we have → Read More
