Yet, it seems that very few Christian conservatives are even paying attention to what […]

BRING AMERICA BACK TO HER RELIGIOUS ROOTS

on March 8, 2013, 4:11 AM / in National News, News, Opinion

For years I have listened quietly while others have explained to me their reasoning for separating the Christian Church from government. And while I replied on several instances that I felt their summaries were flawed, I never held it against them and still don’t. But this time read the words of Pastor Roger Anghis and maybe you might understand the […]

Vance Original Post The across-the-board government spending cuts known as the “sequester,” although delayed by the American Taxpayer Relief Act of 2012, finally kicked in on March 1.

Political Correctness, Zero Tolerance, and the Death of Reason

on March 6, 2013, 4:17 AM / in Opinion

Someone once said “that to destroy a civilization, society or culture, you must first destroy its language.” The exact quote escapes me, but I believe it is attributed to Cicero. (I guess I need to look that up.) My first exposure to political correctness, though I didn’t know it at the time, was in the early Eighties when a co-worker […]

Gun Control and You

on March 5, 2013, 10:09 AM / in News, Opinion

Late last week I learned that nullification bills regarding protecting the Second Amendment were introduced and passed in one house in four states. In fact, the fallout from the New York attack on law-abiding gunowners as been swift. I’m told that half of the counties in New York have introduced resolutions decrying the new gun-grabbing law and a third of the counties have […]

The Law Of Necessity

on March 4, 2013, 4:49 AM / in National News, News, Opinion

This column is archived here. Most of us are taught from childhood to respect and obey the law. On the whole, Americans are law-abiding people. This is only fitting for a nation that was built on the principles of law. Remember, at our core, this is supposed to be a “nation of laws, not men.” This is one reason that […]

As most readers know –  I am not a *Lincoln admirer* and I think those who are should do a bit of reading about THE REAL LINCOLN instead of the one the victors have filled *their* history with.  I have been trying to read a paper back magazine about the size of the old Life Magazine titled “The Un-Civil War” […]

Michelle’s Mostly Laudable Crusade

on March 4, 2013, 4:00 AM / in National News, News, Opinion

By Ross  Kaminsky Two cheers for her appeal to individuals and private organizations to live, eat, and act in a healthier way. Allow me to start with a caveat: I’m no fan of Michelle Obama. She’s a statist, or more specifically a nanny-statist, who supports her husband’s econo-moronic policies while spending huge quantities of taxpayer money to support her lavish […]

Collectively speaking but with too many Christians in the spotlight too, American Culture is getting from God exactly what it deserves.   “America is great because America is good, and whenever America ceases being good, America will cease being great.”  Whether that came from a “Republican” or a “Democrat” doesn’t matter one twit.  The Creator of Goodness is also the Creator […]

by KURT SCHLICTER The grotesque spectacle of the State of the Union address, with its lengthy  receiving line of adoring sycophants, demonstrates why the President is  operating under the delusion that he is more than just our President. Like him,  many people seem to fundamentally misunderstand his role. He’s not our “leader,”  or our “ruler,” or our national “daddy,” no […]
