Visiting Wind Cave National Park

Visiting Wind Cave National Park

My family and I visited Wind Cave National Park for the first time today. It’s one of the many, many things to see and do around the Black Hills of South Dakota. The cave is the fifth longest in the world, coming in at over 130 miles of it mapped, and has some geological formations that are found in almost no other cave in the world. The pictures I took give you some idea of how incredible the cave is, but I’m not kidding when I say that they do not do justice to what you will see with the naked eye.

IRS Allows Illegal Alien Fraud

IRS Allows Illegal Alien Fraud

WTHR Channel 13 in Indianapolis has uncovered a disgraceful fraud that should be national news every evening until the problem is rectified. All workers, citizens, legal immigrants and illegal aliens are required to report earnings to the IRS. Without a Social Security Number illegals are issued an ITIN, an individual taxpayer identification number. With that illegals can then claim an “Additional Child Tax Credit” of up to $1000 dollars per claimed child. And that child can be a niece or nephew and live in Mexico!

How to keep the poor poor

How to keep the poor poor

According to the liberal meme, the rich are rich because they are lucky, and the poor are poor because they are unlucky. Yet according to the Census Bureau, in households with children that had married parents, 8.4 percent lived in poverty. In households with children headed by a single mother, 39.6 percent lived in poverty. The logical conclusion is clear: getting educated and getting married dramatically reduces the prospects for living in poverty.

Free Speech Rights Asserted for Religious Organizations

“The Internal Revenue Service has no legal right to investigate, let alone threaten or penalize, the Catholic Diocese of Peoria for illegal ‘electioneering’ after Bishop Daniel Jenky, C.S.C. referred to policies of Adolf Hitler and Joseph Stalin while delivering a robust, wholly legitimate critique of current federal efforts to quash and curtail religious liberties,” says Tom Brejcha, President of the Thomas More Society. Backing up that message, Brejcha promised to provide free legal counsel and what it believes is a winning defense to any and all religious leaders whose free speech rights are assailed by the US government.

When ‘Hate’ Isn’t Hate (And ‘Love’ Isn’t Love)

When ‘Hate’ Isn’t Hate (And ‘Love’ Isn’t Love)

You can safely assume you’ve created God in your own image when it turns out that God hates all the same people you do.” — (Anne Lamott) I came across the above quote recently and was struck by it, though not at all in the way that the author and the person quoting it apparently intended. The quote would make perfect sense if it were applied to people who actually hated others in the name of “God.”

Men and Women: Different, Valuable, Necessary

Men and Women: Different, Valuable, Necessary

This video from The 12 Biggest Lies exposes the fallacy that Leftist social engineers have been trying to sell since the 1960s: that men and women are the same, and their “perceived” differences are simply “learned” constructs of society. This video also has important lessons not only in area of the liberal feminist agenda, but also in debunking the liberal homosexual agenda.
