For the Greater Good of America
By Phil Longo
The Constitution gives us 5 freedoms but in a recent survey, 22 percent of those surveyed could name all five Simpson’s but only 1 out of 1,000 could name all five freedoms established in the Constitution. Those five freedoms are:
• Freedom of Speech
• Freedom of the Press
• Freedom of Religion
• Freedom of Assembly
• Freedom to Petition
We have heard that we are in a crisis, and we are, actually we are… Continue

Senatorial & Congressional Term Limits
By Phil Longo
The framers of the Constitution intended the Senate to be an independent body of responsible citizens, statesmen to take time out from their private sector lives to serve their country. They intended for the Senators to share power with the President and the House of Representatives. James Madison, paraphrased Edmund Randolph, when he explained in his notes that the Senate's role was "first to protect the… Continue

On January 29th President Obama met with Republicans for a face to face exchange. If I would have been there I would have had many questions for him. I wish someone would have asked the following series of questions:
Mr. President, the American people recently bailed out the auto industry,…correct? You would agree, that their problems were brought on primarily due to miss-management,…. correct? You would agree that a major cause of their problems were due to lost market share to… Continue

Sara Palin wrote in a Washington Post op-ed today that President Obama should boycott the United Nations summit on global warming in Copenhagen because the issue has become politicized. On her Facebook she made a post calling climate science “junk science and doomsday scare tactics.”
Al Gore said that the evidence of global warming is unequivocal and that those who claim otherwise…….such as Sarah Palin…..”persist in an air of unreality.”
Unreality?....Really? Let’s see who… Continue

For years we have heard the endless drum beat from the Democrats that it was they who cared about the “Working Families”, the little people, you know the working man and woman.
On the other hand they have told anyone who would listen; the Republicans only care about “Big Business” and the “Wealthy”. Please, correct me if I am wrong! Keep in mind according to the former community activist / Jr. Senator form Illinois, he say’s the wealthy is only 5% of the population...remember he is… Continue

First I would like to put several stakes in the ground. First stake, we are a country of consumers, if we do not consume, we will wither and die. We are a capitalist country. That is, we have a system that was primarily designed to allow a family to generate income from their work. Initially and ideally there is enough income to be used to pay for a family’s NEEDS, SAVE some money in the bank and have some left over for their WANTS.
As a society we cannot survive if we only have… Continue

What do I mean when I say this guy doesn’t have a clue? What has he done to address our economic situation? In his first 100 days in office has created the largest expansion of federal government since World War II. This community activist / former Junior Senator from Illinois has shown he doesn’t mind spending billions of our hard earned tax dollars on the auto industry, banks & insurance companies, running up trillions of dollars of debt for our children and grand children in his inept… Continue

YEONPYEONG ISLAND, South Korea – A defiant flash of North Korean artillery within sight of the island that it attacked this week sent a warning signal to Seoul and Washington: The North is not backing down.
The apparent military drill Friday came as the top U.S. commander in South Korea toured Yeonpyeong island to survey the wreckage from the rain of artillery three days earlier. As a U.S. nuclear-powered aircraft carrier headed toward the Yellow Sea for exercises next week with… Continue

Let’s start at the beginning; this county did not just happen without its pains, battles and struggles nor did it happen over night. This land was established through God on to man for a purpose. Our fore fathers were Christian men inspired by God to create the laws of these United States of America to protect us from what we are experiencing today, freedom of religion and not just any religion. We have two forces, good and evil and we must defend ourselves form evil at all times. It may come… Continue

The owner of the Phoenix Suns basketball team, Robert Sarver, opposes AZ's
new immigration laws. Arizona 's Governor, Jan Brewer, released the following
statement in response to Sarver's criticism of the new law:
"What if the owners of the Suns discovered that hordes of people were
sneaking into games without paying? What if they had a good idea who the
gate-crashers are, but the ushers and security personnel were not allowed to
ask these folks to produce… Continue

You know folks, when Sarah Palin announced that she was resigning as Alaska's Governor and gave the reasons why, my wife and I talked about it and said to each other...hmmm, not going to even finish her first term !! If you recall, she said.......she arrived at her decision in part to protect her family, which has faced withering criticism and occasional mockery, and to escape ethics probes that have drained her family's finances and hampered her ability to govern. She said leaving office is in… Continue

BHO EXECUTIVE ORDER TO BANKRUPT AMERICA
Does President Obama plan to move to the center in response to his overwhelming rejection at the polls on November 2nd? No way! Instead, he is moving to implement, through executive action, two of the most controversial items in his 2010 agenda -- a carbon tax and pollution permit system and a ban on the use of secret ballots in union elections. Through executive action by the Environmental Protection Administration (EPA) and the… Continue

ALL EUROPEAN LIFE DIED IN AUSCHWITZ
The following is a copy of an article written by Spanish writer Sebastian Vilar Rodriguez and published in a Spanish newspaper on Jan. 15, 2008. It doesn't take much imagination to extrapolate the message to the rest of Europe - and possibly to the rest of the world.

The “Religion of Peace” strikes again!
DO NOT HAVE ANY CHILDREN LOOKING OVER YOUR SHOULDERS WHEN VIEWING THIS VIDEO.
Keep in mind that Obama, in his book Audacity of Hope, stated that: “I will stand with the Muslims should the political winds shift in an ugly direction.”
If ever there was a video we needed to see, it's this! For that reason, I thank my classmate for sending it, but it has made me physically sick to my stomach!
