Americans may be less safe today because the Obama administration made the decision to circumvent the Constitutional treaty ratification process by mandating that his administration would begin compliance with Article 75 of Additional Protocol I (API) to the 1949 Geneva Conventions “out of a sense of moral obligation.” Read the rest of this entry »
Dear Al Gore,
It snowed this morning in the south. The trees are budding, birds are chirping, flowers are blooming and grass is greening, and — it snowed. I saw it with my own eyes.
You owe us an apology and the Nobel Peace Prize committee a refund. Libraries and bookstores should re-file your “An Inconvenient Truth” book to the fiction section.
An Inconvenient Mistruth?
“We should never begin an operation without knowing how we stand down. We did a no-fly zone over Iraq for 12 years and it did nothing to get rid of Saddam. So why do we think it will get rid of Qaddafi?” Retired General Joseph W. Ralston
After six days of arguing over “Who’s on first,” the allies tentatively reached an agreement to turn the no-fly operation over to NATO. The allies were split on both the goal and the exit strategy of the Libya mission and quarreled over the scope and size NATO’s responsibilities versus responsibilities the national militaries would keep.

Dogs are interesting creatures. This morning while on a walk, one of my dogs broke away from our pack and into the yard of a dog obviously defending her boundaries. After a momentary altercation, tuck-tailed, my dog willingly rejoined our pack – ego broken but a bit wiser – because he not only learned his place, he discovered that sometimes a dog’s bark is just as big as his bite.

“We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America…”
How amazing it is to consider that this tiny document crafted by patriots would be tried by fire and stand the test of time. This tiny document is the enemy of the delusional Progressive Left – who would like nothing better than to destroy it.
Consider what they’ve done to our economy the past two years. Yes, Obama ”inherited” a “mess” - but rather than taking wise steps to clean it up, Progressives seized the moment, and saw it as an opportunity to promote an ideology. An ideology that put America at the threshold of bankruptcy.
Common sense reminds us that you cannot spend your way out of debt; Progressive NON-sense spent us into record-breaking debt.
As a result, our children and grandchildren will inherit enslaving debt and will not have the same opportunities we had.
For many in Washington, it’s all about politics – nothing more, nothing less. Progressives are different in that Washington politics is a means to an end – or THE END of America as we know it today.
Conservatives must continue to fan the flames of Conservative values by reminding our Washington representatives why they are there. It’s not about politics. We must restore our Union back to the place our Founding Fathers intended.
Please stay involved. Please hold your representatives accountable and please take time to encourage those who are standing strong.
