In Detroit, money has gotten so tight that private citizens have begun mowing city-owned lawns and parks. But don’t expect other strapped cities to follow suit in what would be a wise preemptive measure to help them from becoming the next Detroit. Because the Democrat machines who control nearly every large urban area will never allow volunteers to essentially replace public-sector union employees. Think about it, for every Joe Citizen cutting the grass for free that’s one less government worker accruing a bloated salary and benefits – a piece of which gets funneled back to those Democrat machines.
In the midst of a Washington power play to water-down the 2nd amendment in the name of reducing violence, NRA First Vice-President James Porter recently reminded his members that America’s engaged in a “culture war” that goes well beyond guns. And he’s exactly right. The battle over societal beliefs and values ranges from ‘protecting’ not only our families, but traditional marriage, the unborn and, yes, even the border. Listen, the stakes are high and so must be yourcommitment to preserving both the Constitutional and Judeo-Christian foundation upon which America was built.
The easiest way to sum up the verdict in the murder trial of abortion doctor Kermit Gosnell is that the defendant did what his‘patients’ couldn’t do…escape death. Because whether you believe in abortion rights or not, many will agree that being convicted of killing three newborn babies should earn anybody their own version of a ‘late-term abortion’ – one that involves a chair, straps and a powerful surge ofelectricity. But instead, society will have to find solace in the fact that Kermit Gosnell will be ‘adopted’ by the Pennsylvania Department of Corrections.
Here’s some perspective on how bad it’s been for Barack Obama of late with scandals ranging from the Benghazi embassy, to the IRS, to the AP’s phone records. It’s been so bad that former President Jimmy Carter – the butt of countless jokes - was recently named by Readers Digest as the most trusted US politician. So apparently, gasoline shortages and the Iranian hostage crisis (just to name a few of Mr. Carter’s missteps and blunders) pale in comparison to a White House that both conservative activists and liberal news outlets look at with increasing trepidation and suspicion.
According to the US Census Bureau, the 2012 presidential race marked the first time in American history that blacks outvoted whites relative to the number of eligible voters in each group– proportionately speaking. But don’t be misled. The re-election of Barack Obama was about ideology, not race. Meaning, the reason why Democrats outvoted Republicans is because in an ever-expanding welfare state with a rapidly growing public-sector, a record number of Americans of all skin colors either on the dole or working in government chose to vote themselves a pay raise.
