I've been the wife of a Naval aviator for the past 20 years, home schooled our children for the past 12 years, and blogged on politics and culture for the last five. I don't have a snazzy resume of all the diplomatic work I've done, nor do I have scads of letters behind my name to validate my work (unless, of course, you count the BS in Counseling...emphasis on BS). I am just your average American living in the Red States who is praying and working diligently to educate the population about the history of this country and the world. Hobbies: History, blogging, the occasional quilt project, New York Yankees baseball, and, of course, my family.

    Obama's ISIS Strategy: Smoke and Mirrors

    Ever since talk radio blew his “I’m so checking out” cover, Obama has been forced to drum up a strategy for dealing with ISIS. That strategy can be summed up in three words: smoke and mirrors. Here’s how this will work: Look tough: While, ultimately, Obama’s handlers are thrilled with his progress thus far, they don’t like it when he looks like a detached ninny. | Read More »

    Border Crisis: Discernment, Not Just Sympathy, Required of America’s Churches

    This is the Oklahoma Conference of Churches Response to Migrant Children at Fort Sill Before I begin, lets first look at the definition of the word ‘migrant’. A migrant, as in migrant worker, is someone who moves from one place to another to work. These kids are not looking for work. Let’s just be clear about that, shall we? For a legal perspective, from the | Read More »

    The Long Knives are Out For Private Corrections in Oklahoma

    Disclaimer: For those who are deaf to anything resembling facts and would rather settle stubbornly on the tired argument that the corrections industry should be left to nonprofits and the government because, ahem… Private Corrections Profit off Human Suffering, I would like to point out that many CEOs of nonprofits have corporate jets. And if you think the government is better than the private sector | Read More »

    Ignorance and the Party Line: A Liberal Conundrum

    It started with this: If this woman hasn’t been given a few cardboard boxes in which to place her belongings, then the Dems are behind schedule on this intervention. The modus operandi for the Party when one of their own, especially a rookie lemming, looks overtly ignorant is to distance themselves. Once this is passive-aggressive avoidance technique is accomplished, the unwitting (that’s “witless”) offender gets | Read More »

    A Convenient Oil Spill

    The oil spill in the gulf has our occupying president, cap and trade groupies, and various other left-wing mental giants pointing their fingers and screeching that it’s all Cheney’s fault. Gee, no one saw that coming. OK, wait, everyone saw that coming. But a cursory look at the BP Oil Disaster Of the Century timeline is leading me to point my driving finger in another | Read More »

    “Life and Death in America” – Will We Learn From History’s Voices?

    I love Rush, Ann, Glenn, and Dinesh, but nothing beats history for giving us a glimpse of things to come if radical Democrats are left unchecked. It is with absolutely no apology that I post more from Nien Cheng’s book, Life and Death in Shanghai. “One day, I was told by one of my remaining students besides Da De that Zhang Chunquiao, the Party boss | Read More »

    A Reminder About Appeasing Our Enemies: Douglas MacArthur

    I ran across this today as I was preparing my son’s history reading for the week. It is painfully apparent that history, ignored, is a poor teacher. History, as rewritten by democrats and promulgated in the schools and media, is a dangerous teacher. From MacArthur’s farewell speech to Congress, April 19, 1951. “I address you with neither rancor nor bitterness in the fading twilight of | Read More »

    Obama’s Marxism: A Warning for the Democrat Party

    More from Life and Death in Shanghai by Nien Cheng. This from one of her interrogations while in prison during China’s Cultural Revolution. Cheng, insisting she had acted within the dictates of the Communist Party of China, tells her interrogator: “Chairman Mao talked about the formation of a united front and cooperation with all patriotic Chinese.” (Think: Obama’s promise of uniting America.) Her interrogator replies: | Read More »

    Obama and the Ft. Hood Memorial

    As we wait with baited breath for Obama’s address at the Ft. Hood memorial, I’d like to exercise some presumptuous creative license and, borrowing from his historical (and vapid and narcissistic) Berlin Wall speech, predict what our illustrious leader will say. For the sake of brevity, all “uh’s” and “um’s” have been omitted. “Few would have foreseen that this military installation would be saved from | Read More »

    Newsflash: Reagan is Dead-God Isn’t

    I originally posted this piece on RedState, but I’m going to elaborate more in this post. My Short Conversation with Mary Fallin I’ll admit, I’m not real savvy when it comes to Mary Fallin, but I can tell you she is the representative for Okalhoma’s fifth district, has voted in favor of Big Oil, voted against a Climate Change Committee, and is an avid supporter | Read More »
