    Tuesday Truths?

     Thoughts to Ponder Do not eat natural foods. I used to eat a lot of natural foods until I learned that most people die of natural causes. — Health nuts are going to feel stupid someday, lying in hospitals dying of nothing. — Being healthy is merely the slowest possible rate at which one can die. — Never take life seriously.

    ObamaCare Makes Me Sick?

    One of the basic precepts carried through our nation’s history is that the majority rules in a democracy, protecting the rights of the minority, but reflecting the people’s will. A Republic elects representatives to focus the will of the people.

Under ReidCare and PelosiCare, with the HHS and Omamba | Read More »

    Patriotic Duty? Tax me more, please…

     Words: 635 Not one of these taxes existed 100 years ago, and our nation was the most prosperous in the world. We had absolutely no national debt, and had the largest middle class in the history of the world, predominantly with a one-earner income and Mom stayed home to raise the kids. What happened? Can we spell ‘greedy, power-grabbing politicians?’ Tax his cow, Tax his | Read More »
