More On Arab Rebellions

| April 24, 2011

When, in the course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bonds which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the laws of nature and of nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the […]

Congress, Foreign Policy & Junkets

| April 24, 2011

Recently we have been inundated with stories in the media of Senator McCain’s trip to Libya to meet with the rebels fighting against Col. Qaddafi. Prior to this we heard of Speaker of the House Boehner’s trip to Iraq to meet with Prime Minister al-Maliki, he was accompanied by a delegation of other representatives. Every […]

Respecting the Flag

| April 14, 2011

From the side of the liberals we hear how the conservatives are going to cut programs that have been in place for years, even […]

We couldn’t remember all of them as they apparently had no meaning for us. Our teachers didn’t help matters any as they expected, demanded through their tests that we recall, or shall I […]
