San Francisco Law Banning Circumcision
I have a lot of really awesome friends who claim to be Democrats. So, help me out with this guys, because I can’t wrap my head around it. The people in San Francisco are trying to pass a law to ban circumcision. These are the same Liberals who claim the right to have Pro-choice laws allowing women to kill their babies in their wombs. You can’t have it both ways. Do we have the choice to kill our babies, but not have the choice to circumcise our baby boys? Read more here...

Pro-choice? Really?
Get ready to throw your daggers at me and send me hate mail. I heard today that the next thing the liberals are attacking is our right to have ice makers in our refrigerators, supposedly because they use too much electricity to run. The same liberals who want women to have the right to kill their children are now trying to tell us that we can’t have ice makers in our refrigerators! Read more here...

Censorship of the internet...let's see. The Liberals don't want it, the Conservatives don't want it, the Independents don't want it, the Libertarians don't want it. Who wants it? Read more here...

What Is a Solid Economy?
This questionnaire was created by my friend Krystal for a class that she is taking in college. She asked me to type up my answers to her questions. They were such good questions, that I thought I'd share them (along with my answers). It would be great to have your opinions as well! Read more here...

House Approves a Bill to Fund Military even if the Government Shuts Down; Obama says he'll veto it!
The House of Representatives has passed H.R. 1363 Department of Defense and Further Additional Continuing Appropriations Act, which will fund the military for the rest of the fiscal year even if there is a government shutdown. Obama says he'll veto it!!!! Why? Read more here...

My Thoughts about the State of the Union Speech 2011
Obama is a very good orator and he wants us all to work together. Translation: he has a good speech writer and a pretty voice, knows what the American people want to hear, and wants all of us to work with him not against him. As long as we change the way we think and do what he wants us to do, we’re working with him. My challenge to Americans: read between the lines! Read more here...

Government Demanding Foreclosure Freeze?
On October 13, Governor Jennifer Granholm (Michigan-D) demanded that certain banks immediately suspend all foreclosures. Why do government officials think we need a foreclosure freeze, and what gives government officials the impression that they can demand anything of a private industry? Putting a freeze on foreclosures is just going to prolong the problem and is another example of government forcing private business to do something. Read more here...

Schoolyard Bullying at its Worst!
Would you give away twenty billion dollars out of the kindness of your heart? What if someone was holding their boot to your throat, as our administration said they were going to do to BP? Read more here.

Drill Baby Drill? Maybe Not Right Now!
We need to use our own natural resources so that we don’t have to rely on energy sources from other countries. We have a vast abundance of natural resources on our own land and we have good environmental safeguards to harvest and process those resources. Our president just got on television in front of the Nation telling us what needs to be done about the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. Or did he? Read more here...

No Jones about It! Why America Doesn’t Want Any Help!
America needs help cleaning up the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico, and we need it now! So why are we turning down assistance from thirteen other countries? Canada, Croatia, France, Germany, Ireland, Mexico, the Netherlands, Norway, Romania, Republic of Korea, Spain, Sweden, the United Kingdom, and the United Nations have all offered assistance to help with this tragedy. The Dutch in particular offered ships equipped with oil-skimming booms as well as help building sand barriers which would protect the delicate marshlands of the Gulf coast. Shouldn’t we be jumping at the offers for help? Read more now...

The Hand that Rocks the Cradle
Has the United States government gone too far? They have taken over so many portions of our economy that there are few things in our lives that the government doesn’t control. As I wrote a check this morning for my student loan payment to the Department of Education, it occurred to me that I used to think that I’d gotten a loan from Central Michigan University in order to go to college. In reality it was the government that loaned me that money and I don’t know of anyone who has student loans from any other entities. That got me thinking about the control the government has on us.

The Parable of the Frogs
(Although at first glance this seems depressing, it is meant to be humorous. Here's hoping that if/when we see someone turn on the burner, we help each other out of the pot!)

We are like frogs in a large pot of cool water. Most of the frogs are swimming around smiling, thinking that the reason the water is getting warmer is because the sun just came out. But some of us have seen the hand that just reached out and turned on the burner. Read more here...

Take this quick little test: Are You Conservative or Liberal?
