Despite the lack of perfection, which will NOT be attained by man, the United States of America is a great nation and We, the People, have much to be thankful for. And we SHOULD give thanks:
Please watch over each of us and our country. Assist us to be true to our responsibilities, honest […]

We need to do MORE of this:
Not only is a valuable principle imparted, it is delivered quickly and in a fun manner. Here’s another example of a “little lesson”:
It seems that many people today, both young and old, have lost the ability to reason. Maybe it’s too much TV, smartphone, email/chat, IM’ing, texting, […]

I am absolutely TIRED of a good action being contorted into a wrongful act or presented with an unhelpful bias.
It is OBVIOUS to all that it is the political season and virtually any activity might come with a political spin. We’re all adults (right?), and we know the game that is being played (including […]

Illinois Congressman Phil Hare says it out loud:
THIS is exactly what’s wrong with all-too-many of our elected representatives. It’s one thing to vote your conscience, to be accountable to your constituency, even to make expedient political deals… but if there’s one thing ALL elected officials must do (indeed, are sworn to do), it is […]

Now is the time for action.
Regardless what happens on the health care fraud that’s being perpetrated in Washington right now, there are too many other areas where the government… and the non-contributing faction of the “citizenry” (which includes, sadly, many non-citizens)… are grabbing what rightfully belongs to the rest of us: the […]

We elect our country’s “leaders” to REPRESENT us… to express our wishes when developing laws and making decisions about spending OUR money. While it is impossible for them to follow any given individual’s wishes since there will be conflicting views, I find it deplorable that those in charge of our government are seriously considering […]

A single line from an excellent book, The 5000 Year Leap, has really made me think:
“The physical sciences capitalize on the lessons of the past, but the social sciences seldom do.”
We would never have the great technology tools and toys, the miraculous medicines, or the comfortable lifestyles that we do if we had to start […]

You rarely see such deep political views stated openly.
President Obama clearly says that, when considering a nominee for retiring Justice Souter’s seat on the Supreme Court:
“I will seek someone who understands that justice isn’t about some abstract legal theory or footnote in a casebook, it is also about how our laws affect the […]

With all the discussion of the current economic “stimulus” plan, it is becoming clearer and clearer that the vast majority of people have either lost sight of the real purpose of government… or have consciously chosen to ignore it and pursue their own personal agendas. It is times like these that a review of […]

Every election cycle, the topic of illegal voting comes up in the news, but it seems especially visible this time around. Typically, it’s some minor situation that gets a few minutes of air time and then fades away. That’s not the case this year. Perhaps we’ve reached the point where internet news sources, blogs and […]
