I've been neglecting my site here - sorry about that. Today I saw two news stories that I had to post.

President Obama’s Taxpayer-Backed Green Energy Failures
I personally believe that taking my tax money to give to these wastes of time, money and energy is theft. I don't approve of GM being bougth by the American people and I surely don't approve the use of my money in this way. This needs to be handled by the free market so people can truly decide if they want this.
I don't think they do and if ...
I haven't had time to post something more in depth, but I wanted to put focus on a video I put up in my last post because some people contacted me and missed something that is so important. I have a feeling the people who voted for Mitt Romney in Iowa missed it too.
Two things to keep in mind:
The Constitution of the United States is meant to be a contract between the people and the government. It's what we've said the government should do and how they should do it.
The Congress is supposed to represent the people in the government.
Various people ...
Iowa Caucus Pressure
Tomorrow, on January 3rd Iowa hosts an important primary
that has long been the equivalent of a start gun for a marathon in the political arena. The Iowa Republican caucus serves as a good indication of what’s to come in the selection of a Republican candidate for any given presidential election.
If you’ve been paying attention, you may have noticed the media has been putting a lot of pressure on Iowans telling them if they voted for Ron Paul, they may be discredited as part of the presidential election process. They are saying this based on their prediction ...
I hope everyone has a great, safe and memorable Independence Day!
I just wanted to say a couple things so please indulge me.
Please call it Indepenence Day if you don't already. The 4th of July might as well be the 5th of July. It's just a date and meaningless in that form. People need to realize and continue to realize the reason behind the holiday. If one person believes it's only about fireworks, too many aren't aware.
Secondly, be independent! Maybe that sounds silly to you, but with the trend I see regarding lack of ownership it appears we no longer want to ...
I hope everyone out there has a great time celebrating Memorial Day and the weekend with family and friends. At the same time, I hope everyone takes time to remember the people all throughout time who sacrificed so much for this county and us from the Revolutionary War to our current engagements overseas. If you know someone who is serving or has served, please thank them and make sure they know they are appreciated.
Happy Memorial day to everyone.
On a quick side note, I noticed the different ways at ...
I've meant for a long time to post about this, but I just kept forgetting it and recently after recommending the info to a good friend, realizing how much he enjoyed it, I've come to the conclusion I shouldn't procrastinate anymore.
A while back I was searching for information about the constitution, but mainly for perspective. I came across videos from a man named Michael Badnarik who I honestly had never heard about before.
is a Constitutional scholar and author. He was the 2004 Libertarian
nominee for President of the ...
Our third and final day in the Collonial Williamsburg area was spent at Jamestown and Yorktown. They were only a few miles away to either side of Williamsburg.
Jamestown was separated into 3 major parts. The indian area, the settler area and the docks where ships much like the ones used during the time period sat tied to the piers.
Personally I enjoyed the indian area the most, but all the areas had something of interest. I think the reason I enjoyed the indian portion so much is that I've always admired the way they lived their lives. Additionally, our ...
I have another installment of Williamsburg to post, but I saw something that caught my eye and I wanted to bring attention to it since it's something related to a previous post, Thanks 'us' for the T-shirt
. There were a few people who disagreed with that post, but quite honestly I didn't get any compelling arguments about it that made me see otherwise. I would love someone to provide me with information that could sway me.
In that previous post, I joked about how Amtrak was giving out T-shirts at a hockey game when they were are in the hole ...
We started off the next day a bit late. Blame it on the fact that I stayed up to watch the Capitals beat my Rangers in overtime or just that we were beat from our 12 hour day. Either way, we barely made the continental breakfast at 10am lol
I admit I was a bit bummed since we missed a speech by George Washington, but hey, it's vacation. It's ok to sleep in :)
We took the shuttle down into the shopping district. That was the location of the Kimble Theatre and we bought tickets to see a debate between Thomas Jefferson and Patrick ...
I've always wanted to visit Colonial Williamsburg
and it just so happens it fits in with our recent vacation themes of northeast historical hot spots. It's also a great family place to visit and it's great for kids. Colonial Williamsburg
is an entire town set in the 18th century where everything is amazingly authentic.
We didn't get to leave until about 1pm on Tuesday since I had to be present for something work related and once we got on the road travelling was a bit slow. It took us about 8 hours to get down there - including a quick bit to eat ...
