Using our Rights against Our Own: The 9-11 Mosque and Religious Rights »

       There is one consistent factor of our society which we are seeing more and more: Using our rights against ourselves in order to protect others.  A great recent example is the 9-11 Mosque.  Almost daily, people are debating the 9-11 Mosque and whether it should be placed two blocks where terrorists involved in the same religion took down the twin towers and changed the nation and the world forever.  When …

Will Obama Outsource US Airlift to Russia or France? »

With the headlines dominated by the oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico, a controversial recess appointment, and Cold-war-era spy swaps, it is easy to lose sight of some very important national security issues.

No Longer A Rumor: Obama Wants Amnesty »

        The people who watch politics closely expected it, the ones who didn’t assumed it and now we know it.

Nature is guaranteed to hurt for months—much more so for the gulf residents dependent on wildlife for a living.

The ‘forgotten’ part is 3 separate leaks from Deepwater piping are overcoming a mile of seawater pressure (2250psi) from the …

America Deserves the Apology »

BP is deserving of no apology; the real apology, should be to the American people. What is the real “shakedown” are the actions taken by the Obama Administration in order to milk whatever they can get from the BP spill aftermath.
