Multiply this by 50 ( or 57 if you are an Obamanite) and get an idea of the COST of ILLEGALS just in the State Colleges. Now add to that the […]

Posted by Michael Becker in Benghazi, Politics … strikes a blow for stupidity. Let me be clear.  John Kerry committed treason when, as a member of the US Naval Reserve, he met with representatives of North Vietnam in Paris.  He should have been, and still should be, arrested and tried before a military tribunal and if found guilty he should […]

In the case of the Temple PD and that Army E-8, we don’t have the whole event on video. Just what appears to be a clash […]

on April 18, 2013, 9:25 AM / in National News, News

The news was full of articles about the Associated Press eliminating the term illegal immigrant from their style book. No mention of the fact the U.S. government still uses Illegal Alien, as we do, since it is factual. The dictionary reads, “Illegal: Contrary to the law: unlawful.” Alien: “Of another country; a non-naturalized foreigner.” So we are right on as […]

Taxation Is Theft

by Andrew P. Napolitano With a tax code that exceeds 72,000 pages in length and consumes more than six billion person hours per year to determine taxpayers’ taxable income, with an IRS that has become a feared law unto itself, and with a government that continues to extract more wealth from every taxpaying American every year, is it any wonder that April 15th […]

I have been around the world of PC’s and mainframes for just about 38 years, most of those years pretty good.

Yesterday in the Senate, a funny thing happened. We fought for freedom, and we won on principle.  You know why? Because U.S. Senators like Cruz, Lee and Paul didn’t listen to the “do something” caucus and the hand-wringers parading as leaders in Washington.  Instead, Senators Cruz, Lee and Paul circulated a warning prior to the last recess saying they would filibuster any legislation […]
