    Senator Lamar Alexander (R-TN) Uses Veteran to Push False Narrative

    This really bothers me. On January 28th, Lamar Alexander’s campaign website ran an article entitled, “A Tennessee Veteran Sets the Record Straight.” In it, a U.S. Army Veteran defends Lamar Alexander’s role in the last budget battle that ultimately led to the passage of Ryan-Murray. The author of the article says Alexander isn’t to blame: Recently, I’ve seen a lot of misinformation about the budget | Read More »

    DOJ Violates It’s OWN Shutdown Contingency Plan by Shutting Down Amberalert.gov

    By now, you have probably heard that the Department of Justice has shutdown amberalert.gov due to a “lapse in federal funding.” Seems pretty outrageous huh. Especially considering all the controversy surrounding closing down parks that don’t receive any federal funds and spending money to block access to WWII memorials. During the shutdown, “essential” government services continue. Before the shutdown began, each federal department came up | Read More »

    The United Methodist Church Wants an Obamacare “Fix” for Themselves

    As a member of a United Methodist congregation, I take a special interest in what the elites of the church are up to. In the past, I have been really critical of their policies and beliefs. So once again, I am must call out more nonsense coming from the UMC. Remember when Nancy Pelosi made the infamous statement that “we must pass the bill so | Read More »

    Senator Lamar Alexander’s Fishy Voting Record

    Seventeen trillion in debt. Obamacare. Dodd-Frank. Benghazi. The IRS Scandal. Immigration. You’d think that with all of these big issues going on in the nation, a Republican Senator running in a red state like Tennessee would be hyping his opposition to them. However, Tennessee’s senior Senator Lamar Alexander, has bigger fish to fry. You see, he is too busy touting his “Freedom to Fish” bill | Read More »

    Benefits.gov: Your Source for Other People’s Money

    Benefits.gov describes its mission as: Benefits.gov (formerly GovBenefits.gov) was launched in an effort to provide citizens with easy, online access to government benefit and assistance programs.

    Obama’s Minimum Wage Rhetoric Based on Minimum Fact

     “We know our economy’s stronger when we reward an honest day’s work with honest wages. But today, a full-time worker making the minimum wage earns $14,500 a year. Even with the tax relief we’ve put in place, a family with two kids that earns the minimum wage still lives below the poverty line. That’s wrong. Tonight, let’s declare that, in the wealthiest nation on Earth, | Read More »

    An Open Letter To My State Senator And Representative

    The right of the people to keep and bear arms is under assault by Washington politicians. They are plotting as we speak to come up with new regulations that will have no effect on gun violence but will only place onerous restrictions on Americans seeking to exercise their God-given right to possess firearms. They make phony gun control arguments and are playing on fear and | Read More »

    Obamacare: Part-Time Employees Still Count When Determining “Large” Employers

    In states that setup their own exchanges, businesses with 50 or more full-time employees will be penalized financially for not complying with the insurance requirements. Obamacare defines “full-time” as anyone who works 30 or more hours per week. So, to avoid being penalized, employers will undoubtedly cut enough workers’ hours under 30 so they will not be considered full-time and therefore will be under the | Read More »
