Voting: Some people shouldn't - 11/29/08 05:18 AM
The other day I talking with some friends over coffee and the subject turned to politics. We are all Libertarians, so this is a common occurrence. The discussion was on voting and who should vote and who should not. We came to the voting topic when one of my friends brought up this old quote: A democracy will continue to exist up until the time that voters discover that they can vote themselves generous gifts from the public treasury. From that moment on, the majority always votes for the candidates who promise the most benefits from the public treasury, with the result (11 comments)
Happy Thanksgiving - 11/27/08 09:07 AM
Happy Thanksgiving to everyone! This is a day we all stop and give thanks for the blessing God has given to us not only over the past year; but, throughout our lives. Whether we are thankful for our children, our family, our friends and/or the people in our lives. We live in a nation that allows us the freedoms that God, our founding fathers and those that have stood the wall for us. GOD I thank you for the blessing of this day and the life you have given me.

Furnance Filters - 11/24/08 07:10 AM
If you have not changed the filter in your furnace yet now is the time to do so. It is important to keep that furnace filter clean and to change it on a regular basis, so the furnace will to operate more efficiently. How to pick a filter for your system: Look at the filter in its slot in the furnace. Look to see if there are gaps around filter. If there are no gaps, then look at the edge of the filter to find the filter size (example: 25x15x1). If there are gaps, with a measuring tape , measure the filter slot (0 comments)
Are we going to have 2 Presidents now? - 11/22/08 05:22 AM
Are we going to have 2 Presidents now? If Hillary Clinton has decided to give up her Senate seat and if she becomes the next Secretary of State will that mean we will have 2 Presidents - one for domestic issues and one for international issues? One reason I am asking this question is the way Obama's Cabinet is shaping up with what looks like a Clinton support group meeting. I would like to ask C-SPAN to televise those meetings I think they will be more entertaining than the BEST reality TV show or a great boxing match. (12 comments)

The Media's Malpractice - 11/19/08 07:46 PM
Today I was surfing and I ran across zobby.com poll that asked 12 questions of voters after they had voted on November 4th: 1. Before this past election, which political party controlled both houses of congress? 2. Which candidate could not say how many houses they own? 3. Which candidate said they could see Russia from their house? 4. Which candidate had to quit a previous political campaign because they were found to have plagiarized a speech? 5. Which candidate won their first election by getting all of their opponents kicked off the ballot? 6. Which candidate wore clothes that their political (7 comments)
When I saw this cartoon on Townhall.com I had to share. I love the simplicity of the image and its message of the difference of the moral standards of the liberals to those of conservatives. You may get the idea I do not like liberals. Well, one on one they are fine; it is when you get them together that liberal ideals start to grate on me. It is like a shark feeding frenzy, with the frenzy of activity starts to grow and grow. And the fish that start the frenzy was eaten awhile a go. (20 comments)
Thieves in the night after night after night. - 11/12/08 11:28 AM
Well I was on-line reading the the Wall Street Journal. And what do I read Democrats are at it again. Read this article. Their caught again with their hand in the cookie jar; but aren't they so cute.
How could we ever not trust these caring Americans who have such love in their heart for (what is it they call it) democracy. (29 comments)
Thank the Veterans you know. - 11/10/08 04:19 AM
Veteran's Day is tomorrow on the 11th of November. On this day millions of Americans will wake up not even thinking about what this day is for, classrooms around this country will not note it, and news media outlets will cover its events only if they have time left to do so. I only ask you to take a moment to think about what was done for the citizens of this country. And give a simple thank you to a veteran that you know. (4 comments)
Why do politicians keep calling us a democracy? - 11/08/08 08:42 PM
Politicians from the early 20th century started calling the United States a democracy. So what is the United States a democracy or a republic? First let us define these two words: Democracy: a: government by the people: rule of the majority. b: a government in which the supreme power is vested in the people and exercised by them directly or indirectly through a system of representation usually involving periodically held free elections.
Republic: a:a government having a chief of state who is not a monarch and who in modern times is usually a president : a political unit (as a nation) (6 comments)
The Important Things of this Election - 11/05/08 08:51 AM
The important things that I hope come out of this historic election are: 1. As a nation I hope we, as a people, can move passed this black and white issue that has hurt us for so long. 2. I hope between January the 20th, 2009 and the next set of Senate elections that the citizens of the United States get a hard lesson in what socialism is and how much it will hurt our country. The election is now over; but our duty as citizens is not, we must: 1. Pray for our leaders (ie. President, Senators etc.) 2. Watch (11 comments)
