On Tuesday, the Democratic National Convention got under way as a historical landmark in American history took place: U.S. debt reached $16 trillion. The national debt has tripled under the previous two Presidential administrations.
Speaking at the American Legion’s convention last week, Mitt Romney said he vows to get veterans out of unemployment lines and to stop defense cuts triggered by budgeting quarrels in the Capitol.
So you think you are free? After all, we have a Constitution with a Bill of Rights that “preserves” our freedoms. You’re wrong. We live in an America our Founding Fathers wouldn’t recognize and they certainly wouldn’t approve of it.
This week, two decades ago, Americans were watching reports of the horrific escalation of the events that occurred in Ruby Ridge, Idaho, where agents of the Federal government terrorized and killed members of Randy Weaver’s family after he failed to appear in court on a charge of selling shotguns that were slightly too short to an undercover Federal agent.
A shocking name, a group of young females rallying against a repressive government with passion and vigor in a bid to shine a bright, international light on the evils of tyranny: What more could American mainstream media have asked for?
In medicine under the germ theory of disease, vaccinations are supposed to provide immunity by introducing the disease to the body in small doses, allowing the body to build up its “germ-fighting” abilities. That theory is now being employed on Americans in another way.
In a not-so-secret “secret policy,” President Barack Obama is financing the “rebels” in Syria trying to overthrow the government of Bashar al-Assad. Those rebels include al-Qaida terrorists who have fought against U.S. troops in Afghanistan and Iraq.
The establishment of Republics compelled Aristocratic minorities to plot more subtle ways of obstructing the truth and thus maintaining their hold over the world without exposing themselves to retribution from the masses. Thus, the complex art of disinformation was born. Disinformation threatens our insight into the workings of our world and makes us vulnerable to fear, misunderstanding and doubt.
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid should have stuck to the liberal trifecta: greed, graft and hypocrisy. Instead, Reid has once again stuck his glowering mug into the main event; attacking the tone of the national discourse like a cinematic axe-murderer at a camp for wayward teenagers in small clothing. Last Tuesday, Reid took an unsubstantiated shot at Mitt Romney.
Imagine that it is possible to be a homophobic, right-wing zealot one moment and a gay-loving uber-liberal the next, simply by crossing the street. It may be, unless Christians avoid the evil sodomite sympathizers at Starbucks and gay rights activists avoid peanut-fried, right-wing chicken from Chick-fil-A.
