Mr. Meese was the attorney general under President Ronald Reagan…
I tell American Black men that they are AMERICANS! NOT “refugees”, “political prisoners”, and other outcast outlooks downloaded like malware.
I remind brothers (of ALL colors) that we MUST be MORE than our circumstances!
This Not-So-Great Recession is breaking spirits from one end of America to the other. My “Make Peace With America” message is needed NOW more than EVER.
American Heroes within each of us are needed now more than ever! Big faces in high places don’t have us at the top of their To Do lists!
Hard as things are presently, it’s up to us!
Was the first winter the pilgrims had hard? YOU BET! No central heat nor high-tech thermal clothing was available, so guess what? People died cold and miserable.
THANK GOD YOU AT LEAST HAVE COMFORT TO COMPETE FOR TODAY!
Was it hard being an African slave or an American one for that matter? YOU BET! As much as we gripe about (VERY) high taxes and liberty, no one owns us outright- not yet at least.
THANK GOD LEGAL SLAVERY AND ITS FIRST COUSIN, INDENTURED SERVITUDE (WHICH MANY WHITES WERE WHO FIRST ARRIVED TO AMERICA) ARE OVER!
I’m not giving you some pie-in-the-sky rap where everything is gonna be fine if we hold hands and sing an old Negro spiritual.
I AM SAYING we’ve got to look to our history (ALL OF IT and not just our portion) for inspiration- and information!
People who had it MUCH WORSE than many of us made it. We need to study their stories deeply.
Everyone reading this has an American Hero inside him- or herself. This American Hero may already be active, helping others with little more than good intentions to keep him going.
Other American Heroes may lurk under the surface, struggling against doubt or depression. I’m saying you NEED to be a Hero for yourself first!
You’ve got to slay dragons in your life; and with that strength, you can help others do the same. There are men, women, and children who draw strength from strong men in their midst.
The American Hero within can either be late (as in dead), or great (as in larger-than-life.)
Your move, boss man!

Rightfully, the parents are furious…
“It brings back memories of the other theater shooting, and the elementary school shooting.” That’s what an eyewitness told MySanAntonio.com about a theatre shooting that occurred two days after the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting in Connecticut and five months after the Batman movie massacre in Colorado. So why haven’t we heard about it before?
This is by far the funniest and most informative video explaining Congress’s idiotic dealing with the debt ceiling: a satirical short film taking a look at the national debt and how it applies to just one family…
Smart cars reduce gas tax revenue, so install a GPS into all cars and tax their citizens on the mileage that they drive.
I used to like Ed Koch a bit, but not anymore. He has crossed the line here.
A nationwide appeal has been sent to gun owners and their families asking they go to their state capitol this Saturday, January 19, from noon to 3 p. m. to show support for our 2nd Amendment rights. In Florida, gun owners are asked to meet in the “middle of the state” at noon, at the Hernando County Fairgrounds, 6436 Broad St., Brooksville, FL 334601.
This urgent call to action is in response to the Barack Obama/Joe Biden/Dianne Feinstein legislative aim of imposing bans on arbitrarily selected groups of firearms and accessories. One North Carolina police lieutenant warns internet audiences that ”We’re in huge trouble.” A devout Christian, the 31 year police veteran tells listeners that “I cry. . .when guns are gone, you won’t be able to worship the Creator. ..gone. . .Freedoms gone.”
An officer who lives near the site of the Sandy Hook killings is concerned that “We are being set up to confiscate our guns. . .we can’t back away. . .these people are coming at us head on. . .we must tell our legislators…we will not tolerate confiscation or ban[s] on our guns.”
When asked what he thought about Obama wanting to take our guns, an elderly veteran at a Florida rec hall said “That’s not happening.” Quoting the soldier’s oath, he said. . .”to defend [the Constitution of the United States] against all enemies, foreign and domestic.” He emphasized domestic.
Firearms trainer and consultant Kelly Alwood would agree with the old soldier. “[Without the Second Amendment] there is no way to resist the government voiding all other amendments,” said Alwood during an interview with the Blaze. “Why should [the government] continue to give you your freedom of speech if there is no one to stop them? It [the 2nd Amendment] is the only safeguard we have to protect us from a tyrannical government.”
Naturally, the left is eager to ridicule “worriers” like Alwood, immediately characterizing all who voice such concerns as ‘nuts’ or ‘conspiracy theorists.’ But mistrust of the motives of governments that have disarmed their “subjects” is quite legitimate as the histories of Nazi Germany, the USSR, and China have so clearly illustrated.
To the Founders of this nation, the right to keep and bear arms became nothing more complicated than “…the right of armed self-defense against tyranny.” Indeed, that was the purpose of this right as later expressed in the 2nd Amendment. And in spite of the best efforts of modern hoplophobes and would-be tyrants to confuse the issue, it has not changed to this day.
For as eager as gun-banning politicians have been to change the focus of the gun control discussion to one of hunting or target shooting, the truth of their disarmament agenda never stays hidden for long. New York Governor Cuomo made that clear with his statement that “confiscation might be an option” when placed in conjunction with his plans for an “assault weapons” ban.
Sorry, Mr. Governor. We’ll not negotiate away our means of remaining free from the likes of you.

The talk show host rightfully claims that Obama is riding roughshod over the Constitution…
Conservatives and Libertarians alike know that they are put down time and time again (occasionally by each other; but soon, we may have a bigger threat to deal with.) To quote Cynthia Chase (D-NH) in the Union Leader newspaper: “In the opinion of this Democrat, Free Staters are the single biggest threat the state is facing today.” She continued, saying that “One way is to pass measures that will restrict the ‘freedoms’ that they think they will find here. Another is to shine the bright light of publicity on who they are and why they are coming.” Now, she was referring to the developing Libertarian Free State Project, which is trying to get people to move to New Hampshire.
To say that the people who believe that Government should be small, that spending should be cut, and that people should be finding jobs (so they can get off Entitlement Programs) should have their freedoms limited is ludicrous. The Constitution of the United States guarantees FREE SPEECH (see Article I, Section I), basically saying that people can say what they want, think what they want, and not be infringed upon. What she proposes, though, goes against the Constitution itself. What she calls for, the censorship of Conservative and Libertarian values and arguments, moves to defy one of the freedoms the Founding Fathers and so many others fought and died to attain and defend. Many people have made the ultimate sacrifice over many years to keep these freedoms alive, and she basically wants to take what they have done and throw it in the trash. She wants to take the freedoms given to us Conservatives and Libertarians, shred them up, and say “you can’t do that”.
America has come very far since the days when the British were in control. We’ve revolted, had a revolution, and gained our Independence. We’ve already been through one Civil War, and we as a nation weren’t even 100 years old. We’ve been through two World Wars, both excruciatingly painful; but we pulled through. We’ve been through countless other wars since. All through those, we have fought to keep our rights, our liberty, and our freedom. Men and women have worked so hard and died to make sure we at home can keep these rights. It would be sad to see those rights taken away not by invasion, but by our own people. By our own neighbors, by anyone. Maybe even a family member. These rights were won so we could all be free.
When one person or group of people believes that they should be taken away for a certain few, or even a certain majority, trouble is only so far in the distance. People constantly say that they will not stand for their government telling them what to do, how to think, what to say, and what they can or can’t have. I for one am one of those people. I will not allow my rights, which are guaranteed by the Constitution, to be limited. “I will not sit by peacefully and watch” is what many people say, and I for one agree with them and see their point. Cynthia Chase’s comments have angered many, for I myself was one of the many. I have seen what some say. They are displeased and disgusted that just because they believe in Conservatism or Libertarianism, they must have their rights limited. We are not pleased and shall not stand for this at all.
