Vince Flynn was a New York Times bestseller and the creator of such great characters as Stan Hurley, Irene Kennedy, Scott Coleman, and Mitch Rapp. To me, Vince Flynn was not only an amazing author; he was a friend and a mentor, never wasting an opportunity to encourage a person to find the magic of her own life story.

You’d be forgiven for thinking that the IRS is busy. After all, they have a lot of work to do to make up the Obama administration’s $1 trillion yearly deficit. But that hasn’t stopped them from targeting tea party groups and denying their non-profit applications.

Mark Twain was lucky. When he said, “Reports of my death have been greatly exaggerated,” he was addressing the first and only time the media prematurely reported his demise. The Tea Party, on the other hand, has been declared dead more times than Bruce Willis in a Die Hard movie.

“Being on President Nixon’s enemies list was the highest single honor I've ever received,” the actor Paul Newman once remarked. America’s 37th president had a fascination, some might say an unhealthy obsession, with the perceived enemies of his administration.

We have problems in America. The most obvious is a busted budget, an overtaxed citizenry (at least for the 53% who pay into the system), another push on gun control, a broken immigration system, a socialist healthcare model and gay marriage rights. The litany of challenges we face goes on. They plague our political discourse with negativity and dissension.

Lately, it seems Republicans keep trying to brainstorm about how to attract new voters in order to win in 2014 and 2016.

I, like many Christians, watched in disbelief this past September at the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, North Carolina as the delegates not only voted once, but three times, to deny the reinstatement of God into their platform.

You are beginning to worry me. I am afraid you are losing touch with the people on whom your fame is based. I, after all, was one of your biggest supporters once. I am thrilled that you get invitations to go to NBA games, that you display your Chick-fil-A shirt, and that you go and support your daughter and her celebrity friends on Dancing with the Stars.

If you’re looking to see what a policy of liberalism can do to a city, look no further then Rock City. Despite one of the most aggressive ECD campaigns featuring celebrities Eminem, Jeff Daniels and Tim Allen, not even Hollywood can save Detroit from going broke.

In an ideal situation, the fake “Tea Party” candidate would actually be successful in their primary bid, and then lose in the general election.

They have forgotten why this country was originally founded; to escape a land of persecution for your faith, unfair taxation without representation, and a government that chose only a select few to thrive. Sound familiar?

Why should the Republicans we've elected stand up to cut spending and cut Government when the base is not willing to do the same?

Over the weekend well-funded Republicans announced an effortto protect Senate incumbents from Tea Party challengers, such as Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio. The “architect” behind the plan is establishment titan Karl Rove, the man who choreographed the steady erosion of conservative policies under the eight years of George W. Bush.

Once America figures out this new path of raising daughters, what should we now teach the boys? A young man will now have to learn a whole new way of relating to girls.

So how does the Tea Party survive? The Tea Party could just change their name, as it seemed to work for ACORN. But this would be portrayed as a sign of resignation and defeat.

March 20th, 1974 started off like any other as my 8 year old brother headed off to school wearing his blue ball cap and backpack. That was the last time she saw my brother, Cliff.
