    The politicians claim that they are negotiating about how best to reduce the deficit. That irks me because our fiscal problem is excessive government spending. Red ink is merely a symptom of that underlying problem. But that’s a rhetorical gripe.… Continue to Post

          Peter Parker’s uncle Ben said it best: “With great power comes great responsibility.” The Spiderman character had a great deal of power. While that was important, the way he used it was more important. If you’ve ever seen the film… Continue to Post

                  A business group considered friendly to President Obama has been granted high-level access to senior White House officials as “fiscal cliff” negotiations have gripped Washington. Business Forward on Thursday will host the last in a series of seven briefings where… Continue to Post

                    Help us; we’re falling and we can’t get up again. Once upon a time — in 1988 and 1998 to be exact — the United States was the best country for a baby to be born and raised in, at… Continue to Post

                          Kansas Rep. Tim Huelskamp said Wednesday that House Speaker John Boehner removed him and other conservative Republicans from key committee posts for conservative votes against House leadership this term.

                                    Last week, I outlined a series of proposals for electing our next conservative president, including a needed societal shift in culture, education, news and entertainment media, and essential control of our southern border.

                                          It appears NBC’s Bob Costas spoke too fast and made many conservative Americans including gun owners and the NRA furious.
