The Tea Party just a temper tantrum

April 23, 2011

You know, many people, mostly the media, try to down play the Tea Party by defining it as racist, an astroturf movement and such, seemingly in hopes that it will just fade away. Many have a preconception, or lets just say what it is-a bias-against an entity that does not tow the liberal point of […]

Entitlement-Pusher-in Chief

April 20, 2011

When did we lose confidence in our own ability to lead our own lives successfully? Why are we looking to government instead of ourselves to provide that American Dream everyone is talking about?

I have held back throwing my words into the mish-mash of nasty and astounding talk after the Tuscan shooting. Very few people were making sense.
