    While US Constitution and free market capitalism set the the foundations for American prosperity, it took a rugged, passionate, free people to build it. From George Washington to George Washington Carver to millions of other Americans, the United States was carved out a continent of forests that seemed to go on forever, fertile plains, vast mountain ranges and scorching hot deserts.  Over time American frontiersmen and settlers forged a country that seemed to have all of God’s blessings in abundance. Conditions were rarely easy for most Americans throughout most of our history. Coal miners spent 12 – 16 hour shifts...

    Recently Obama played the guilt card in his campaign for gun control as he cranked up the tears. President Obama made an emotional plea for Congress to pass gun-control legislation, telling the political world “shame on us” if it has forgotten the 26 people killed at Sandy Hook Elementary School less than 100 days ago. “Shame on us if we've forgotten,” Obama said Thursday at a White House event where he was flanked by more than a dozen mothers whose children were the victims of gun violence. The president paused for effect several times in his remarks, stating: “I haven't...

    No where is the left's hypocrisy on display more than the 2nd Amendment debate. Check out this Democrat lawmaker: "As a hunter and gun owner, I will not give up my guns and I will not ask other law-abiding Americans to give up theirs," says Thompson, 62, a former state legislator and eight-term congressman. But he wants YOU to give up YOUR guns because "it's common sense" "I know a lot of NRA members and I don't know of any who think they should have the same weapons as the police or military -- or should be able to buy...
  • Never interfere with an enemy while he’s in the process of destroying himself

    Haley Barbour once said You know, Napoleon said ‘Never interfere with an enemy while he’s in the process of destroying himself.’ Which apparently derives from the Napoleon quote: "...when the enemy is making a false movement we must take good care not to interrupt him.” To paraphrase Mark Twain, I have read the obituaries and reports of the death of the GOP are premature. The prospects for GOP control of not just the House, but all of Congress, are brightening daily because of two ongoing themes: gun control and Obamacare. The damage is self-inflicted. Gun control is causing gastric reflux...

    The third birthday of the monstrosity known as the Affordable Care Act, aka Obamacare, has come and gone. It's been about three years since Nancy Pelosi uttered those immortal words: “But we have to pass the [health care] bill so that you can find out what’s in it....” Three years and we're still finding out what's in it. Three years later Obamacare is less popular than ever: According to the Kaiser Health Tracking Poll for March, only 18 percent of Republicans, 31 percent of independents, and 58 percent of members of Obama’s own party, have a favorable opinion of...

    The volume of ink and airtime being propelled our way on the country of the week, dissecting and analyzing its past, present, and future, may well catapult the name of a small island at the eastern end of the Mediterranean into a verb.  How long before North Americans get “Cyprussed”? The details of the Cyprus predicament, such as they are, or such as authorities will allow them to be known, are now burdens of discussions from San Francisco’s Market Street to Paris’ Champs Élysées. We are spectators to the consequences when a country has surrendered  control over its currency,...
