200 Years Ago Today: The Battle of New Orleans
On January 8, 1815, the final engagement in the Battle of New Orleans took place. This battle was a huge victory for the United States, even if the War of 1812 was technically over while it was being fought. This battle, more than any other in U.S. History, was responsible for not only developing a national identity, but in establishing the United States as a | Read More »
NYT’s Can Take Their Newspaper and Shove It
A quick little note to NYT – we like our Country just the way it is. We don’t need you preaching to us about Sharia Law. The Muslims are most welcome to live in America the beautiful, but if they came to change our beliefs and for what we stand for they can grab a canoe and paddle back to the Country they love so | Read More »
Random Roundup Three
Random Roundup is going to my series of articles where there is a bunch of stuff I want to talk about, but don’t feel they belong in separate articles because of length. Stuff I will be talking about: Super Super Sunday, U.S. President Andrew Jackson and Barack Obama’s nonacquiescence, the upcoming Cambodian-Thai War, and a new Second Amendment bill introduce in the state of Florida.

This is also a good time to remind everyone that the last time Sarah Palin “quit” her job, she ended up taking down most of the Alaskan Republican party hierarchy as well as the Governor of Alaska! | Read More »
Where Have You Gone Daniel Webster? America Turns Its Lonely Eyes Towards You
Lately I find myself going farther and farther back in time to discover when there were great men debating the important issues of the day in Washington, DC. The antebellum period between the War of 1812 and the War Between the States is an excellent time to find greatness that is nonexistent today. People remember military men like Ole Hickory, Tippecanoe, and Old Rough and | Read More »
Sarah Palin and the Intelligence “Issue”. Yes, I’m mad.
If you think she’s dumb, then I encourage you to use your own smarts to build a time machine and forever send yourself to pre-1776 times; you’ll like it there.Throughout the general election campaign, I have been thoroughly disgusted with people who demonize Sarah Palin. Since the end of August, there has been no shortage of folks who choose to say that they “can’t stand” | Read More »

Barack Obama is NOT Andrew Jackson
More, including pictures (check out the new one of Blago, haha), at Commodore PerryThe recent New Yorker cartoonis all the rage, and Obama’s response was to call it insulting to Muslims and “tasteless and offensive.”Let’s contrast this to:Andrew Jackson.As the story goes, Jackson’s opposition labeled him “Jackass” during the 1832 campaign for President. But instead of either buckling to or ignoring the comments, Jackson decided | Read More »
