Gun Control and Constituents

13 April 2013

Most of you know that I am supportive of gun control laws. I own several guns but would be happy to register them if my government ever asks me to.   However, I would like to say that these senators are wise to remember that they are elected to represent the people and not their [...]

Bipartisan Support of Immigration Reform

20 February 2013

“Dead on arrival.”That is what Marco Rubio called Obama’s immigration reform plan when it is presented to congress. I understand that Rubio has joined the bipartisan Gang of Eight in an effort to produce meaningful immigration reform, and I applaud their efforts. I hope they come up with a decent plan. However, to call Obama’s [...]

Sacrifice Obamacare To Avoid Sequester

18 February 2013

This is just more inflammatory rhetoric that continues to get in the way of any kind of compromise by our elected officials.  Lindsey Graham has really missed the mark on this one.  If he checked his facts, he would know that what he is calling for does not make any sense.  “But Graham’s “solution” also [...]

Obama’s Drones

23 January 2013

        I have a real problem with the underlying issue here in this article.  Fox News is using the fact that the LEFT is against Obama’s drone program as a method to attack him.  I understand why the left is against this – we are successfully killing terrorists from afar in the sky, without warning.  [...]

Trickle Down Economics

14 December 2012

This guy wrote a great letter about something I was harping on the entire election season.  Why do Republicans keep pushing the theory of trickle down economics down our throats?  I will admit that when I was a young man voting for Reagan I completely believed in the concept of trickle down economics.  However, 32 [...]

I know it’s 3 days before the election, but this is also a political issue. This cop roughed up a young lady who didn’t pay a speeding ticket.
