By Paul Huebl Washington, DC—Justice Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr. served on the United States Supreme Court from 1902 until 1932.  Still today he’s probably the most quoted jurist to ever walk the face of the earth.  In 1921 Justice Holmes weighed in on the concept of Stand Your Ground: “The law has grown, and even if historical mistakes have contributed […]

A Few Thoughts On Integrity

on July 22, 2013, 8:41 AM / in National News, News, Opinion

Some of you may have noticed that I’ve been kind of silent these past couple weeks. Don’t mistake my silence for lack of caring about the things that are going one, it is just that I have been asking myself why waste my time talking about things when what I have to say won’t make a damn bit of difference.

Aftermath

Aftermath

on July 22, 2013, 8:26 AM / in National News, News, Opinion

The Trayvon Martin killing was a tragedy that, as far as I’m concerned, never should have happened. It was a classic case of really bad judgment on the part of both the involved individuals, with Zimmerman following Trayvon when he shouldn’t have and Martin attacking Zimmerman when he shouldn’t have and both men responsible for painting themselves into one of […]

Quote for Today

on July 22, 2013, 8:22 AM / in National News, News

“America has no functioning democracy”  – Jimmy Carter Wow. I never thought I’d agree with Jimmy Carter about much of anything, let alone agree with him twice in one week. But if he actually said, “America has no functioning democracy at this moment” (referring to revelations of omni-snooping), then we are totally on the same radical track. The U.S. media […]

CALL TO ACTION STOP THE ASPCA, AND IN SO DOING, YOU WILL SET THE STAGE FOR STOPPING THE HSUS!!!!! Unwittingly, and with unbridled arrogance, the ASPCA has “stepped across the line” and undertaken a course of action that goes beyond the bounds of “Freedom of Speech.”  In so doing, I believe the ASPCA is violating the Animal Enterprise Terrorism Act […]

Taking on the Liars Club

If you are like me, you are getting really tired of how the mainstream media (MSM) is portraying the death of Trayvon Martin. In the days following the shooting, and since, we have been subjected to two pictures; one of Trayvon Martin looking young, sweet, innocent; the other of George Zimmerman, looking like a thug.  And to that end, while […]

Leadership Redefined……. (CNSNews.com) – House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) apparently sees his role as more of a facilitator than a leader.

This comes in from a WGEN reader in Virginia. When I was living in Washington State I fought like crazy with those Pierce County (Tacoma) County Council members over their membership on WACO (which I purposely pronounced WHACKO).  I have fought against each and every national membership of all levels of government…   be it Council members, Commissioners,  treasurers, auditors, assessors, […]

Say You Got That Feelin’ We Need Racial Healin’

on July 21, 2013, 6:47 AM / in National News, News, Opinion

Sincere well-intentioned Americans are asking, “What must we do to heal the racial divide following the Zimmerman trial?” What my naïve fellow Americans do not comprehend is that the Democratic party and the mainstream media are heavily invested in keeping racial tension alive. During Obama’s presidency, race exploitation has been on steroids, used by Obama minions to silence opposition to […]

ObamaCare Subsidies Free for the Asking, Administration Rules

on July 21, 2013, 6:40 AM / in National News, News

Written by  Michael Tennant In an effort to prevent an ObamaCare “train wreck” — as retiring Sen. Max Baucus (D-Mont.) described the law’s impending implementation — and forestall future repeal efforts, the Obama administration has just opened the door to potentially widespread fraud by making it possible for people to obtain health-insurance subsidies for which they are ineligible under the […]

“It is of great importance to set a resolution, not to be shaken, never to tell an untruth. There is no vice so mean, so pitiful, so contemptible; and he who permits himself to tell a lie once, finds it much easier to do it a second and a third time, till at length it becomes habitual; he tells lies […]

By Amy Payne Obamacare was supposed to go so well, we were told. The mandates. The long-term care insurance. The Medicaid expansion. All going swimmingly, right? Only in the minds of Harry Reid and the bureaucrats at Health and Human Services (HHS). Despite a host of delays, legal challenges, and complete implementation failures, the Senate Majority Leader says “Obamacare has […]

The Puppy Uniform Protection and Safety Act (S. 395 / H.R. 847) has been reintroduced for the 113th Congress. At a time when jobs are scarce, the PUPS Act imposes an unfunded mandate which over regulates responsible dog breeders across America.
