Past global warming predictions mostly hot air

Billed as the storm of the year, and perhaps of the decade or 21st century, tens of millions of people from Philadelphia-to-Boston scurried home before the 50 to 75 mph snow-blowing icy winds over took them. Authorities banned travel on all streets in New York City and violators, who lingered too long, could be fined $300.

A fish story for my atheist friends

The following is a story, written several years ago by a high school student where I live.  His “Fish Story” is perhaps the most profound piece on the subject of the existence of God.  As we look for ways to improve our lives the coming new year, improving our connection to a loving creator should […]

The biggest affront to the Constitution since FDR

On November 16, President Obama announced his executive amnesty in a live address to the nation.  After the American people soundly rejected his policies on November 4, he had the audacity to address us in prime time fashion, defiantly rejecting existing law and placing himself above Congress on immigration law.  This, after he argued more […]

President Obama unilaterally grabs more land

Last month President Barack Obama designated 646,000 acres within the San Gabriel Mountains northeast of Los Angeles, a national monument despite the lack of support for the move in the House of Representatives.  Nor were the local communities surrounding the monument that would be impacted by the move consulted, outside environmental special interest groups.  The […]

Made in the USA – At what cost?

February 10, 2012 was the day a very sad realization occurred to me. One of the large contributing factors to our economic decline is jobs that are outsourced to other countries; white and blue collar. Having completed the prototype process for my new product, I was excited to find wholesale suppliers to start production. I […]

The courts vs. the elected majority on same-sex marriage

A frequently asked question is how can a non-elected judge undo the elected will of the majority of the people on same-sex marriage?  “What value is my vote?” they protest.  In state after state, the Defense of Marriage Act defining marriage as between a man and a woman was passed—even in liberal bastions like California.  […]

‘We cannot rely on a rule-book written for a different century’

“On issue after issue, we cannot rely on a rule-book written for a different century,” so said President Barack Obama to the United Nations General Assembly on Sept. 24, 2014, presumably referencing the U.S. Constitution.  You may recall that the current biggest issue is his having initiated war in Syria by bombing ISIS without the […]

If 7-year-olds could vote

On Friday, my 7-year-old granddaughter came home from school with a long face. “Grandmother,” she said, “is there any way a kid like me could talk to someone who could get the president to change a law?” “The President can’t change laws, honey,” I replied. “Only Congress can do that.” “Well, who could I talk […]

President defies the constitutional separation of powers on ISIS

Although we applaud Secretary John Kerry’s recent efforts in Paris to persuade 40 nations to contribute to a world plan to defeat the militant anti-Christian, convert or die, Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS), the President cannot do so in either country without violating the constitutional separation of powers.  We also agree with the […]
