What same-sex marriage advocates won in the Illinois Senate on Valentine’s Day 2013 was just reversed.
Congressman Todd Akin claims refusing to step down from the Missouri Senate race is his way of taking a stand to “strengthen our country… standing on a principle of what America is.” But Akin claims heroism where only self-preservation exists.
Watching Space Shuttle Discovery soar over the great American monuments in DC on the back of a 747, gutted and consigned to a museum, brought back wonderful memories of America’s marvelous achievements. Yet it also reminded us it was our triumph in the space war that bankrupted the Soviet Union and created a bitterness they shall never forget.
A growing avalanche of Republican support has been orchestrated to push the grassroots to embrace Governor Mitt Romney. Only halfway through the primary, Republican leaders are telling voters the decision is made. Mitt Romney will be the Republican Candidate for President of the United States. Will Wisconsin voters fall into line on Tuesday’s primary or will they speak with a mind of their own?
Pat Buchanan did something dreadful. He said politically incorrect things…incendiary, in fact and faces punishment in a New America where free speech is now applied more to rights to pornography and protections for curse words than to actual ideas.
John McCain has just endorsed Mitt Romney. That should mean something to Republican voters on the fence as we move into the next phase of the presidential race. But what?
As the issue of allowing gays to openly serve in the military raged last year, Mitt Romney let it be known he roundly opposed the idea. He was outraged, incensed. Many conservatives were certain this was the real Mitt revealing himself after years of having to pretend to embrace gay rights as governor of Massachusetts.
It’s hard to take a victim seriously when she laughs as she tells her story of “victimhood.” Even though her voice broke briefly during the most explicit parts of the public statement, Sharon Bialek’s claims of sexual harassment by Republican presidential candidate Herman Cain were just another silly spectacle orchestrated by America’s most unscrupulous feminist attorney, Gloria Allred.
Does Mitt Romney, an elder and former missionary of the Mormon Church, believe he will one day be a god…equal to Jesus…ruling his own planet? Does he agree with Mormon teaching that Jesus and Satan are brothers? That America is the Promised Land where Jesus will return one day to rule from the Garden of Eden, which Mormons believe to be Jackson County, Missouri? And do American voters have the right to know this?
Pundits seem hell bent on singling out a dismal performance by Governor Rick Perry on Thursday night’s FOX/Google debate, which was the most watched debate in history—proving voters are paying attention in record numbers as the economics tighten.
In spite of pleas by Christian and Jewish clergy, Mayor Michael Bloomberg steadfastly refused to allow those who had brought spiritual comfort during the 9/11 tragedy to participate in the ten year Memorial at Ground Zero.
The American media doesn’t want to learn how to take a joke when it comes to conservative candidates—especially ones who claim strong faith in God.
“The perfect is the enemy of the good,” wrote deist Voltaire in an 18th century poem. The idea, of course, is that the pursuit of perfection may sometimes prevent an action less perfect that still produces something good…or at least better than nothing.
What is the fascination with Casey Anthony? One 96-year-old grandmother in Alabama was so fixated; she knew the names of Casey’s entire family, the defense team, the witnesses and prosecutors. The Nielsen ratings demonstrated clearly that millions of Americans spent hour upon hour of their own precious lives watching this tragic scenario unfold. But why?
Why are leaders of both parties working at cross-purposes on this devastating Patent Reform Bill?
“It’s time to get even,” declares a union letter to Wisconsin Teachers. An April 5th election for a seat on the Wisconsin Supreme Court could be their chance for revenge.
There was an interesting article in the Chicago Tribune just days after Barack Obama’s inauguration. Published on January 14, 2009, Peter Wallsten entitled it “Obama’s Team 2.0.”
“It was wonderful! You should have been there! It’s just like the Sixties!” A Wisconsin teacher reported effusively to my friend, another Wisconsin schoolteacher.
