Standing against big government and for the people!
Our Federal government now owes $17 trillion on its books under the account named “National Debt.” This is more debt than all of the other debtor nations on this planet COMBINED. Government statistics are heavily manipulated to hide the truth about the state of our economy. Our Federal Government has not had a budget in four…Continue

Maria Elena Baca (mbaca@StarTribune.com) penned an article a couple years ago titled “Is classroom off-limits to teacher views?” Milton Estabrooks also penned an article on this site January 22, 2010 titled "Our Failure to Educate Youth." More recently, we hear about a project promoted by the Department of Education dubbed "Common Core." Recently, I wrote a post titled "The Fundamental Transformation of America" on…Continue
While we were growing up, how often did we hear the words:
“Don't do that!”,
“Stop doing that!”,
“No, you can't do…

This “press conference” did not start late morning November 14, nor did it conclude that morning. What happened that morning looked more like damage control. It's scope was controlled and carefully rehearsed. The Q&A was directed with a play script that looked like a TV soap opera. Here is why I think so.

The Conservative Movement Seems to be at a standstill at best case, and in danger of becoming irrelevant at worst case. “What happened?” and “Why did it happen?” help us to size-up the current situation. “What now?” and “How?” helps us to discern what should be done to achieve our collective goals.
We find several kinds of people in our political midst. Many people will stick with the major party candidates, as to not ‘waste’ their vote on 3rd party “spoilers”. Others want to…Continue
Ranked Choice Voting (RCV) is supposed to eliminate the need for Primary Elections. Advocates of RCV make the following claims:

“Sorry for your loss” seems to be the politically correct thing to say to a grieving person. Place your feet into the shoes of the grieving person. What goes through your mind when you hear these words?
A professional counselor gave me some insight about grief that may help others to understand what it is, how to get through the ordeal, and how to help others cope with grief.
Grief is a special instance of a natural emotional response to a traumatic experience. Death of a…Continue
The tribal wisdom of the Dakota Nation, passed on from generation to generation, says that “When you discover that you are riding a dead horse, the best strategy is to dismount.”
However, government has more advanced strategies to employ, such as:
1. Buy a stronger whip.
2. Change riders.
3. Appoint a committee to study the horse.
4. Arrange to visit other countries to see how other cultures ride dead horses.
5. Lower the standards so that dead horses can be…

As of Sunday morning, September 29, the US Congress sent to the US Senate a continuing resolution with an amendment to postpone the start of Obama Care by one year. Monday, the US Senate rejected it. The President vows to veto anything that defunds, defers or delays Obama Care as soon as it reaches his desk. Tuesday, the US Government shut down all "unnecessary services." That action put about 800,000 government…Continue

Received this from a friend. The information presented by Michael Connelly is consistent with other sources that include two members of the US Supreme Court Bar Association. I also read the original bill as presented to the US Legislature for passage. The following text was slightly edited to increase readability and improve sentence structure.
The Truth About the Health Care Bills

Obama draws a chemical weapons red line which he later claims wasn't his. Syria crosses it. We are going to war. The UK votes against supporting the USA. We are voting…Continue
Sillytown and Wahoot are neighbors. Some people call them the “Twin Cities” which really aggravates native Minnesotans, especially those people who live in or near Minneapolis and Saint Paul. Fufusnik, the Mayor of Sillytown, became infuriated with the “rank corruption” of the Wahoot city fathers, along with their disdain for Sillytown, and decided to take action.
After several secret strategy meetings of its City Council, Sillytown declared themselves a cat sanctuary . They accepted…Continue

Look at the motives of the players and the geography to understand what is happening.
Iran and Russia are Communist China's "gas stations." China needs portable energy it does not have at home. The last thing they need is a full-scale Middle East war that blocks their supply of portable fuel. Also, they trust Russia with one eye open and know from history that Russia is not above price gouging whenever they can get away with it. Ergo, China votes…Continue

Several theories originally circulated throughout the Internet. We now know that all three of following theories were true in the mindset of at least one of the players.
1. The "Wag the dog" that wasn't. The one I saw most often was a “wag the dog” involving a conspiracy between Obama and the Muslim Brotherhood of Libya to capture and hold the US Ambassador for ransom. Then Obama could arrange a prisoner exchange, give up the blind Muslim cleric, and look like a hero just in time…Continue

Our US military may have to use those words in the very near future. The military cannot engage Syria while it disengages from Afghanistan and strengthens our deterrence in the Pacific Rim, Far East and the South China Sea. The reality of sequestration combined with reduced purchasing power of the US dollar, make national defense impossible to sustain at current levels. Military commanders also see the wasteful spending:

Here is an update about sequestration from people who actually testified to Congress, along with my translation into “civilian speak.” The following link proclaims my source, confirmed in a conference call with high-ranking Air Force official February 15 and another high-ranking military official last week.
From the Armed Forces Press Service
In late Fall of 2012, I wrote two posts on this site/ The first was “The Imminent Threat to Israel”, a threat analysis that included maps and demographics. The second was “Oil, Religion and Politics – The Next Perfect Storm”, a broader look at the Middle East Conflict and its economic roots. …
