Guns And Abortion: States Starting to Rebel Against Federal Control

Obama Claims Vietnamese Communist Ho Chi Minh was “Inspired by the Words of Thomas Jefferson”

Last week the president of Viet Nam, Truong Tan Sang, visited US President Obama. One would think Sang’s presence in the Oval Office would be the closest the Communist would get to Thomas Jefferson, the author of America’s Declaration of Independence. You’d be wrong.

Birthday of a Giant: Where Have you Gone George Washington?

It is February 22nd, the birthday of our first President, George Washington. I don’t celebrate “President’s Day.” I celebrate the presidents individually, not the whole gaggle of them at once.
