Our Son Michael Has Gone To Afghanistan

    Our son Michael left for Afghanistan yesterday.  His mother wrote the following yesterday as well, and with the news coming out of Afghanistan today, I thought I would repost this here.  Please keep Michael in your prayers. Today my son Michael leaves for his second tour for Afghanistan, and as I tell him to be careful, he tells me not to worry I’ll be fine | Read More »

    Free Speech? Only If You Speak The Language Of The Left

    Universities are supposed to be areas where there is open debate and free speech is prized…unless you deviate from the leftist ideology. From the The University of Illinois has fired an adjunct professor who taught courses on Catholicism after a student accused the instructor of engaging in hate speech by saying he agrees with the church’s teaching that homosexual sex is immoral.

    Victory In Illinois Through Illinois Victory

    According to Rasmussen, the Illinois Senate race is a toss-up.  That’s along with Colorado, Florida, North Carolina, Missouri, Nevada, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Washington, and Wisconsin.  Don’t forget, the same report also shows Indiana, Arkansas, Delaware, and North Dakota as potential pickups away from Democrats.  But since I live in Illinois, my main concern is Illinois and we can help the various races around the state. First, | Read More »


    Today, we celebrate our freedom, our independence and our nation’s birthday.  We’ll get together with friends and family, attend parades, and watch fireworks this evening.  With all the pomp and circumstance of the 4th of July, we remember those who fought (and are still fighting) and died (and still dying) to protect the freedoms we enjoy and to preserve the American way of life.   But | Read More »

    Is Robert Gibbs Next?

    Pure speculation here on my part, no evidence whatsoever, just thinking out loud.  We know from experience that if you underperform or goof too many times in Washington DC, heads will roll. Will the BP/Sestak crisis/blunder be the downfall of Robert Gibbs?  The handling of the BP crisis by the White House has been a huge PR gaff as the lefty allies in the mainstream | Read More »

    Which Of These Is Not Like The Other?

    I remember growing up and watching Sesame Street and they always had a game on that show where they showed a series of pictures and then asked, “Which of these is not like the others”.  Take a look at these two pictures and tell me which of these is not like the others: Figured it out yet?  Both pictures are of Florida’s Governor Charlie Crist | Read More »

    A Real Story About Government Healthcare

    We’ve all heard the Democrats roll out stories about how the evil insurance companies failed to help those that were in medical need.  Pelosi and her Tyranny of the Majority decided that the government running health care would be the answer.  But what about the other side of the coin?  What about the stories where the government refused to help?  I’ve got one for you | Read More »


    Who Congress should have listened to but didn’t?  Who should the American people should listen to – especially the first 16 seconds of this speech?  The same person – Ronald Reagan. Instead, we got this tonight. Is there hope?  Absolutely. First, we act to oust those in office now that voted for this monstrosity or sit supported no because they were covered by House members | Read More »
