We all know that one of the prime motivating factors that leads to the early immigration to the United States of America was freedom – freedom from a monarchy and freedom from a societal class system that placed the working people at the bottom of the food chain. They fled to America for freedom to achieve whatever their intellect and industry was capable of, but most important of all, they came to America for the freedom to worship God in whatever way they chose.

This letter is not written in a spirit of hate or disrespect. Nor is it motivated in any way by racial bias. It is written with respect due the office and the awesome tasks that have been laid on your shoulders.

The failings of the Obama Administration begin at the very top, because incompetence breeds incompetence, hires incompetence and attempts to cover incompetence, and it does so with innuendo, lies and simply pretending that a bad situation doesn't even exist in hopes that it will go away.

December 7, 1941 was a cold gray day in coastal North Carolina, the kind of day when you were glad you could stay inside.

"It is rather for us, the living, we here be dedicated to the great task remaining before us – that, from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they here, gave the last full measure of devotion – that we here highly resolve these dead shall not have died in vain; that the nation, shall have a new birth of freedom, and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth." - Abraham Lincoln

I heard on television this weekend that there is a very real possibility that Russia and China are both closing the gap in regards to their air power and could even surpass the U.S. in a few years, which is a most frightening prospect to say the very least.

To watch what unfolded in Baltimore this past week is an unsettling experience to say the least, no matter what level of society or affluence you come from. It should serve as a wakeup call to all, because Baltimore, Ferguson et al., is not the four-alarm we tend to think of it as being. Rather, it is the fuse that could very well ignite powder kegs all over the country.

The 70’s were a time of change, a huge shifting of the generational tectonic plates, an influx of new ideas, new music and the lessening of moral standards. The "if it feels good do it" generation was coming out of its shell, influenced by radical "tune in, turn on and drop out" revolutionaries who sought to change America to suit their own lawless purposes.

I sometimes wonder if President Obama's knowledge of history reaches back past the days of the radicals, the flower children, the draft-card burning and draft dodging of the late 1960’s and if he hasn't read a lot more Saul Alinsky than Abraham Lincoln and Teddy Roosevelt.

The simple, blue-collar society I was raised in would probably be considered, if not poor, at least far down the financial scale. We lived in a rented house, which had electricity, but our plumbing consisted of a hand pump on the back porch and a sanitary facility you had to walk to.

Every spring, as the earth renews itself, we celebrate what is arguably the most important day in the Christian faith, Easter, or Resurrection Day as it is sometimes referred to by believers.

Whether you're at a fast food outlet, an airline gate, at a ballgame or just walking down the street, if you were to count the number of people either talking or texting on cell phones you'd probably be utterly amazed.

America has had several tragic events recently involving police officers and black males that have resulted in death and injury, events that have further heated up an already inflammatory racial environment to the boiling point and beyond. It’s a sad fact at best, and a potentially explosive one at worst.

President Obama's unwillingness to use the phrase "radical Islamist terrorists" may seem like superficial semantics to those who defend his every move, but to a lot of us, it has much deeper implications.

I guess it's my earliest remembrances of Roosevelt, Truman, Eisenhower, MacArthur and their ilk that formed my image of leaders.

The framers of the constitution added the second amendment for some very good reasons, and it's not only for hunting, target practice and personal protection, as most people tend to believe.

The pressing problems of the United States of America parallel its national debt—huge, growing and accumulating the kind of interest this nation can ill afford to pay.

There was a time in America when a man who shirked the duty of supporting his family was looked down on, a social outcast, a pariah, without respect and little companionship. Anyone who brought children into the world and didn't put a roof over their heads and food on the table was held in contempt, ostracized and belittled as a man who was on the very bottom rung of society, beneath the contempt of the hardworking generation of responsible citizens who built this nation and made it what it was.

If anybody has ever asked for a no holds barred, no rules of engagement, kill or be killed war it is the bunch of bloodthirsty radical Islamic crazies who call themselves The Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, ISIS or The Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant, ISIL. Levant also encompasses Israel.
