A Modern Missile Crisis

A Modern Missile Crisis

Shark Tank has an excellent interview with Rep. Allen West (R-FL) concerning national defense and foreign policy. The defense cuts Democrats are drooling to make are reckless and will endanger our nation at a time when our Armed Forces desperately need to be built back up after nearly a decade of fighting terrorism on two different fronts–and faces new threats from belligerent nations like Iran, North Korea, and China. There is also a threat in our back yard from Venezuela and Marxist America-hater Hugo Chavez.

The Myth About Defense Spending

Defense is one of the few things our federal government manages today that the U.S. Constitution actually authorizes it to do. Sadly, somewhere between 50 and 60% of the federal budget is spent on social programs that the Constitution simply does not authorized.

Rick Santorum on What Marriage Means to Society

Once again we see in this video clip a homosexual activist attempting to make Republican Rick Santorum look like an evil bigot who “opposes rights for everyone.” The activists implies that to restrict homosexuals from military service or from counterfeiting marriage is to deny them some sort of right. Santorum points out that while all Americans have unalienable rights, serving in the military is not a right, but a privilege. He also points out the unique benefit that marriage brings to any society–something our current president refuses to acknowledge.

Compute Your Net Worth Once a Year – 2012

If you are within 20 years of retirement (age 45 to 65), it’s critical to get your retirement planning updated. Computing your net worth annually is like taking a sextant reading to chart your course toward financial security. The changes of the past year provide another incentive to take stock of where you are in relation to your goals and readjust your asset allocation and savings rate.

Raising dust, raising corn, raising cows–and raising cane

Farming issues are confusing, especially for city folks. But when it comes to restrictions coming from Washington and from groups that are setting out to save the planet, both city and farm folks really should get excited and raise some cane about those “do-gooders.”

No Man Can Be Fully Free While His Neighbor is Not

Gingrich Skins the Media on Their Pro-Homosexual Bias

During the GOP debate last night, after a round of the “moderators” trying to make the Republican candidates look like mean ole bigots, Newt Gingrich threw it back in the face of the “mainstream” media and illustrated how they are supporting an anti-freedom, anti-family, anti-society agenda. Of course, Mitt Romney tried to play “me too,” but in light of the facts, his silly behavior falls flat.
