Millions of Americans have voiced their support for Phil Robertson over the past week. Where the liberal left met his comments about homosexuality with indignation, social conservatives saw Robertson’s outspokenness as a basic affirmation of the Bible.
Black Friday marks the official start of Christmas shopping season. Unfortunately, there’s always that one present under the tree you wish you hadn’t received. The ugly sweater from Aunt Bertha that itches.
If there’s one thing Obamacare’s supporters and opponents can agree on, it’s that Obamacare is unprecedented. Never before did the federal government require every American to buy a commercial product. Never before did it attempt to use its spending powers to coerce states into implementing a federal program.
Three weeks after the opening of our government, I finally realized why there is so much hatred for Senator Ted Cruz and company: Jealousy. Cruz’s words and actions served as the political equivalent of Dramamine by freeing Americans from the motion sickness that comes from Washington, DC’s normal spin cycle.
If you believe Bigfoot roams the Pacific Northwest, you might be gullible enough to believe Barack Obama’s claim that the United States will default on its creditors if Congress doesn’t raise the debt ceiling.
Baltimore teacher Jeff Slattery struggles with fear every day.
On Tuesday, Senator Ted Cruz began a filibuster of the worst law passed by the worst President in American history. He vowed to “speak in support of defunding Obamacare until I am no longer able to stand.”
It’s not often that I agree with Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, but she was right for more reasons than she probably realized when she said last year that the Supreme Court’s 1973 decision in Roe v. Wade went “too far, too fast.”

The morning of June 16, 2013 started off like any other traditional morning in Amy Gibbon’s house.
I can think of many great attractions in Chattanooga, TN. You can stay in the famous Chattanooga Choo Choo Hotel.
The ultimate goal is clear -- to neuter America’s military as an effective fighting machine and encourage the development of a global “peacekeeping” force.
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.
Scandals are what soap operas base their story lines off of. Scandals are actions of a President and his intern in the Oval Office. I consider this administration's actions to be more in the category of betrayal.
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.
