The topic of immigration is a difficult one, it tugs on many shirttails. It's a subject that has ups and downs, good and bad, innocent and criminals, and of course the underlying human emotion. It's hard to talk about immigration without human emotion; after all, immigration is about people.
The Florida legislature held hearings to discuss a proposed bill to require abortionists to provide medical care to an infant who survives an abortion. They heard the testimony of a representative for Planned Parenthood who gave their position on the bill. To say that testimony raised a few eyebrows with the legislators and the general public in attendance is an understatement.
It is been over five months since the Presidential election, I'm noticing a change in people's attitudes. It seems that people are becoming more disillusioned, angrier with the antics they are witnessing in Washington DC. While it did not seem possible before the election, the rhetoric and bickering is getting more intense and has reached new levels.
I went to bed Thursday evening February 28, 2013 and I have to admit I was quite nervous. As I laid there tossing and turning my mind was going wild. I was thinking of everything I heard that was leading up to what was called sequestration day. The more I thought about it, the more anxious I became. Soon anxious gave way to fear and the more I thought the more the fear grew. Then I began severe night sweats, start to bite my nails. I just couldn't help it, how will I face this, something so deva
My kingdom for someone in Washington that can balance a checkbook! Ok, a little dramatic, but the search for answers to motivate Washington to cut spending, eliminate waste and fraud as well as become fiscally responsible, it has become obvious from the President on down they cannot accomplish this task.
I have watched for the last 3 1/2 years a man called Barack Hussein Obama try to fulfill the job he was elected to do, President of the United States. At times I have sat in disbelief of the policies and procedures of this President. I have come to the conclusion that President Barack Obama is severely learning-disabled. It could be ADD, ADHD, or could just be something else. How else can you explain the actions of someone who claims to be a graduate of Harvard, a constitutional professor,
Everyday Congressmen and Senators get onto the floor of their respective chambers and give speeches on different topics. Then they'll gather in the rotunda to give news conferences blaming each other for the issue at hand doesn't get resolved. Of course now that it is campaign season, they give broader speeches, and at times their speech has nothing to do with the issue at hand for which they were supposed to be addressing. I want to make it clear that both sides are guilty of this, but am only
Well the Democrats and the unions are at it again in the state of Wisconsin. They haven't learned their lesson, they still want to be divisive, and of course they still want to waste money. I'm talking of the recall election of Gov. Scott Walker. The last attempts at a recall on the senators and congressmen of Wisconsin was a failure to the tune of $30 million spent by them. I have no idea how much they're spending this time, but the unions are bragging they are spending more that last election,
Do Republicans really have a chance at winning the Presidency in November of 2012? President Obama surely has made it easy enough for almost anyone to defeat him. Pick an issue and you will find nothing that Obama can campaign on. In fact in his speech kicking off his reelection campaign, president Obama did not mention one thing that he accomplished during his first term. All he did was lodge attacks against the Republicans and why it would be so terrible to elect those bad boys.
Does your vote really count? We have all heard the stories over the years, stuffed ballot boxes, ballots destroyed, ballots thrown out, ballots just not counted, and of course the most famous are those hanging chads. We all have the right to vote, its part of what our founding fathers fought for in establishing this new great nation. Every November we the people go to the voting polls whether it is a presidential election, midterm elections for Senators and Congressmen, governors, mayors, judge
Robots and machines came to prominence in the early 1900s during the industrial revolution here in America. From robotic arms spot welding on the automotive assembly line, to the arms packaging products in boxes for shipping, robots have improved our way of life tremendously.
Last year Arizona was suffering from a huge devastating forest fire that was named the Monument Fire. It destroyed thousands of acres and many homes. Before Arizona could even lick its wounds along comes a series of monsoon type heavy rain storms ending on July 26, 2011.
Let’s state clearly, that we, the public, still do not know all the facts surrounding the killing of a 17-year old, who was walking back from a convenience store when he was noticed by the 28-year old neighborhood watchman. The incident was sad, tragic, unfortunate, devastating, awful, and a whole lot more, but what it wasn’t, it was not racist. What we have is a tragic set of events that caused these two to meet with a horrible outcome. What there is are a ton of questions about that evening,
Its quiet now, the lawyers are finished. Both sides gave the good fight; both gave their arguments with passion. It is up to the Supreme Court Justices now; they will decide the fate of Obamacare. Of course both sides are confident, both feel they will prevail. But in reality, only one side will. There is one question that has not been asked or answered ever since the legislation has been challenged even at the lower court levels. That is what will happen if Obamacare is found unconstitutional,
I am never amazed to the limits some go to misrepresent an issue. Gas prices are once again going up, in fact let’s be honest, they have gone up since Obama took office. I read an article stating Obama has no impact in oil prices; the blame is all on the Republicans and oil companies. There are many reasons that contribute to the cost of gas, and the President and his actions or lack of actions also is contributing factors.

August 20, 2008 was a quiet day for the most part. The day came and went with no fan fare. There were many things in history that happened on August 20. 1641 - Scotland and Britain signed the Treaty of Pacification. 1741 - Danish navigator Vitus...
It seems that election cycle campaigning is entirely too long and an unfair process.
Another year has passed and we are coming up on another Martin Luther King Day. I know many will see this as a black holiday and not as a day to honor a man who fought for his ideals, his vision, and his principles. The country was different then,...

My friends and readers all know that I am an independent through and through. But I do admit I will not vote for Obama nor do I want to see him get re-elected. But I have mentioned on my show and in several writings that I do have fear he can get...

There has been a lot of talk and writings on a secret motive to not have elections in November 2012. This talk was low key until North Carolina Governor Beverly Perdue suggested suspending Congressional elections for two years so that Congress can...
I came across a small article called famous quotes that did not make sense. I say small article because the author only spoke of two quotes. Whether or not one may find these quotes famous or not is another question. The author cites a quote from...
The Wall Street protest is entering its third week. There has been some news coverage but not much. It started relatively peaceful, but as of late, they have outsiders coming in and inciting them. So as a result, the protest is not as peaceful, and...
There are many theories as to why the middle class is slipping away. Some believe it is because they are taxed too much. Some say it is because Congress spent too much and we now have a huge deficit to pay for. Some say it is because we like...
I was in a forum and having a discussion with a fellow HP member. Now this was not a serious debate or anything.I had started the forum by leaving a link to a beautiful song. The respondent said, as she has before, she refuses to listen to anything...

President Obama thinks he is a Sith Lord and Darth Vader all in one. Well just let me say he” don’t know the power of the voter side”.
I wonder if Michelle Obama is still proud for the first time. Remember back on the campaign trail when she said âit was the first time I was ever proud to be an Americanâ. That statement did not go over well for a few people. Of course, the...
