Sheryl Sandberg, author of Lean In and Chief Operating Officer of Facebook, has a line in her book that states “I want every little girl who’s told she’s bossy to be told instead that she has leadership skills.” As you have probably heard by now, her Lean In organization and the Girl Scouts of America […]

What we are seeing in the Middle East including Tunisia, Yemen, Egypt, and to some extent Jordan and Lebanon, is a direct result of the Obama administration’s failure to support Israel — and for Obama’s obvious favor of the Muslim nations surrounding our only democratic ally in the region
The uprising in Egypt, if taken over by the Muslim Brotherhood, will severely endanger American interests that have largely been coasting along in the belief that Egypt’s President Hosni Mubarak would engineer a smooth transition of power to his son. This was the scenario in Syria when its dictator, Hafiz al-Assad, passed away.
As every year passes more and more illegal aliens are taking advantage of American largesse by breaking and entering the United States illegally and having their babies on US soil effectively anchoring their family in the US through the instant citizenship of that baby. This can no longer be allowed.
The “president’s” first glaring mistake in his SOTU address, was his failure to acknowledge the Second American Revolution and his place in it. Great events are transpiring around this “president’s” head, as the American people call on their leaders to abolish the Federal Reserve. Obama continues to assert a Baghdad Bob weltanschauung, assuring Americans that the “worst of the recession is over.”
I’m concerned about Virginia’s Gov. Bob McDonnell. He seems to be embarking on a white–whale situation involving his obsession with privatizing the Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control (ABC). This unnatural focus is a damaging, negative influence on his administration.
Why are Americans being bombarded in the space of a single month with more than 400 articles in magazines, newspapers, and on the Internet that are designed to frighten them into thinking that a good, safe thing is a bad thing? It piqued my curiosity and prompted me to dig deeper. It seems that finding out who is behind these attacks on BPA, none of which has any credible science to support their claims, is proving to be a real detective game.
Newt Gingrich is conniving to pass a law essentially allowing a state to declare bankruptcy in order to get out of paying pension benefits to retirees. Before it ever went into affect, the former Speaker should be compelled to renounce every last penny and future benefits accruing to his name as a result of his tenure in the House of Representatives.
… Long Wins
Billy Long survived Long is Wrong. He survived all the other bloggers that decided to fill in the gaps the local media failed to present in their news. After his decisive victory, which was no surprise to anybody, I took the Long is Wrong site down.
A Sad Day in America
I find great sadness that I had to discover there are many people who call themselves conservatives who don’t believe in political free speech. Many of us true conservatives realize the GOP has been hijacked by neocons and moderates, but I learned the hard way as I heard many justify efforts to silence a blogger …
Americans have become used to mediocrity. We have forsaken excellence. Now we seem to just want to get by. The old expression: “Good enough for government work” seems to be the code of conduct prevailing in the American workplace today.
Why has there been so little consistent coverage of the on-going attack on Christians? This is especially curious insofar as it is estimated that there are more than two billion Christians worldwide, about a third of the global population. Perhaps it has something to do with the fact that they are the victims, not the perpetrators of this horror.
This American weltanschauung, which is based on “Yankee ingenuity,” led this nation–in the face of the British embargo– to fashion rope for our Navy during the War of 1812, with locally grown hemp. It is a self-sufficient agenda, modeled on the Hamiltonian sense of independence from foreign suppliers.
There were things I was told that didn’t amount to much. There were things that I was told that were clear contradictions to promises made to prominent supporters. Finally, there were things that scared me that I was told, which I decided never to print unless some other news source released the information.
