President George Washington’s Thanksgiving Proclamation
Here is the full text of President George Washington’s Thanksgiving Proclamation issued on October 3, 1789. One thing that’s very interesting about this little piece of history is that it’s full of religious overtures. Can you imagine Obama issuing that kind of proclamation? Or for that matter, the current Congress decreeing a special day of thanksgiving to be held as a way of blessing the | Read More »
The Trouble Isn’t With NSA Spying On Us
It’s good for us to revisit the issue of balancing between preserving our cherished civil liberties and the need for security measures in order to safeguard peace for Americans. If we don’t revisit the issue now and again, it will mean we’re complacent and take the civil liberties for granted. We shouldn’t take anything for granted. But this diary isn’t about Edward Snowden or NSA | Read More »
Personhood Issue: Aggravated Murders vs Abortions
Ariel Castro is being charged with multiple counts of aggravated murders for each time a pregnancy resulted in miscarriage by physically abusing 3 women held in captivity for a decade.

Dear Redstate, An Important Message From A Minority Voter
I’m not sure where to start, but since everyone here is concerned about how GOP can reach out to the minority voters with a winning message that will resonate with them. So, that’s where I will start. I am one of few minority voters who voted for Romney.
Which Comes First, People or Government?
[promoted from the diaries as part of the Ambitious Writer's Program] Which comes first, egg or chicken? It’s a philosophical question that could be answered either way. There is really no right or wrong answer to this question. Ever since Obama spoke foolishly out of his mouth with his now infamous quote, “You didn’t build that,” as if business must depend on some assistance from | Read More »
Let’s Turn The Table on Obama
For years, President Obama has been pushing for tax increases on the wealthy class. One of the most recent tax proposals put forward is the so-called Buffet Rule, based on the billionaire Warren Buffet’s article written in New York Times, in which he revealed a supposedly shocking fact, he paid less in taxes than his secretary. He argued that anybody making over $1 million is already super-rich | Read More »
Why Can’t Obama Be More Like His Daughters?
It’s not always easy to get two persons to agree on something, much less getting Congress to agree on any major issue that’s especially divisive and has enormous stakes. So, in a certain way, I can sympathize with the president for feeling frustrated by his inability to get Congress moving on some important issues. But when Obama recently scolded the Congress for failing to get | Read More »
Following Up on Streiff’s Dairy, “Palin Fear”
I was going to write this as a comment under streiff’s dairy, “Palin Fear,” but I think this warrants a dairy of my own. Streiff wrote that the reason Obama administration fears Palin is because she’s an excellent spokesman for conservative movement and Republicans who actually believe in conservative principles. Please allow me to expand upon streiff’s premise. It’s my belief that the actual reason | Read More »
Guilty Until Proven Innocent
Our court system may not be perfect, but one of long cherished and held legal traditions is the assumption of innocence until proven guilty. Well, if President Obama has his way that will change in a major and significant way. Obama also planned to ask Congress to crack down on tax havens and implement a major shift in the way courts view guilt. Under Obama’s | Read More »
A Brief Dairy: I’m wondering if Obama supporters can explain why Obama is breaking a pledge?
Hello and good morning to everybody! I have no work today because of bad weather, so I get to stay home and…bash President Obama! Okay, I want Obama supporters to come up with a good explanation of why Obama is going to break a pledge on avoiding “earmarks” in the spending bill. WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama will break a campaign pledge and sign a | Read More »
Why Don’t You Switch Your Doctor If He Has Moral Objections To Abortion?
We all knew that the moment Obama was elected as the 44th President, there would be some serious setbacks on abortion front. Well, here is the latest setback for abortion opponents, Obama administration will announce next week its going to rescind Bush abortion rule. It provides some job protections for doctors and nurses who have moral qualms on abortion (and birth control).
If We Have Defense Budget Cuts, What Should We Keep?
How many of us knew one day we would fight two wars in Iraq and Afghanistan? Let’s face it, if we never thought that one day we would witness a massive economic collapse on Wall Street, then it is indeed a safe bet to say that future is unpredictable. So, it’s always safe to err on the side of caution. It’s easy to cut down | Read More »

Being A Foxy President Is Not An Easy Task
When you become the newly elected leader of the greatest nation ever to grace this sorry world, you are entrusted with many responsibilities that can’t be easily ignored. Some of responsibilities may seem trivial to you, but you should never ignore even the most basic duties…like being on time.

Real Dangers of Obama’s Revamped Faith-Based Programs
I usually don’t blog here at all, but it’s time for me to toss in my two cents over the issue of Obama revamping the faith-based program first founded by Bush. Recently in news, President Obama signed an executive order to establish a revamped White House Office on Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships. But as we know, while President Obama speaks in the language of unity and | Read More »
A Positive Thing about Obama: the Deaf and Closed-Captioning Service
A positive thing about President Obama? Who in his right mind would say this? Normally, most conservatives on this site would say no. And I am a conservative just like most of you are. However, I am unique among conservatives due to the fact I am Deaf. I turned conservative just a little over 10 years ago the moment I became a born-again Christian. But like | Read More »
Gitmo facility and Alcatraz
Ever since President Obama’s executive order to close the facility at the Guantanamo Bay within the end of year, the debate on where to send detainees continues on. Recently, Republican Rep. Bill Young proposed to House Speaker Nancy Pelosi that Alcatraz, which is in her district, be reopened. Naturally, Pelosi shrugged off such suggestions, she said that: Perhaps he’s not visited Alcatraz,” Pelosi said of Young while displaying little | Read More »
“Hope and Change and one more thing — Gosh, I don’t remember.”
The. Best. Line. Ever. And this was what the black lady said to the reporter when asked what line of President Obama’s inaugural speech touched her heart the most. You see, this black lady came from Chicago, so she paid lots of money just so that she could show up in cold weather and witness this historical day. And she couldn’t remember the best line | Read More »
Drive a Mile, Be Taxed Twice More
I am not great at writing blogs, so here goes nothing…. America is a big country, so it’s a real must for most people to have a decent car. We love to drive. I should know, because I love to drive. I live in Silver Spring, Maryland and I’m no stranger to riding on Metro buses and subway rails, but I’ll take driving over riding | Read More »
How Old Dominion Become Obama Dominion
UPDATE: I’ve updated my blog entry, but it’s not done yet. I want to discuss the analysis I’ve done on Virginia a bit more in depth. But I guess that will have to wait tomorrow, as I have church service tonight. But I’ve uploaded my spreadsheet in excel sheet and sources with links provided. I am on a brief break as I type this blog. | Read More »
