        Wouldn’t it be nice to have a president that isn’t afraid to stand up and say, “You’re Fired?” Here are some good candidates for firing: Attorney General. We need one that enforces the constitution and the law and that personally follows the law. We must have one that is truly color […]


July 29, 2015 It is obligatory for devout Muslims to make a haj–a pilgrimage to Mecca. We admire their devotion to their religion. We just never expected our own elected politicians to be leading their procession. ⇒1979 President Jimmy Carter, besotted with the strategies and goals of the Ayatollah, sided with the Ayatollah against the […]
