Because things are obviously not going well for the Democrat Party these days, I thought this former Democrat should do her part to help out and make a few suggestions.
It is tax week 2015. If you completed your tax return on time and wrote that check you'd much rather leave in your account, why not pour yourself a cup of coffee and plop yourself down in your favorite easy chair and sit a spell. You deserve it.
The diagnosis is in. America is sick. Radicals rule Washington and most of them are snuggled comfortably within the political party with which I once identified.
Mordecai was one of those world-changing, history-altering kind of guys recorded in the chronicles of the Media and Persia kings. Mordecai was a sort of ancient day Netanyahu whose perspective inspired him to immediate action to preserve the Jewish race.
Many parents also entrust houses of worship that have long since forsaken their holy calling to clearly define right and wrong in favor of what does not offend in these most grey days of political correctness.
There is a movement sweeping across the globe manifesting itself in the fiery hearts of those preaching the gospel of "the stark truth of climate change," insisting the divestment of fossil fuels will "save" the planet. Even President Obama claims, "the debate is settled. Climate change is a fact." A reasonably dramatic statement, given that nothing is ever settled in the world of science.
There are big, dark, ugly events in our lives we all regret but unless someone invents a time machine to go back and erase the past, the best we can do is beg God's forgiveness -- then forgive ourselves, forgive others, and move on.
Truth can be an exasperating thing, especially when we come upon it unintentionally. However, for those who have the courage to pursue it in its purest form, truth becomes the indelible essence of their being and the lifeblood of existence as they journey ever forward into that to which they are destined.
Substance is that little thing that floats to the surface after style has long faded. And it is clearly missing in the words of our president these days in his continual vacillation between what he really believes and what he wants us to hear about ISIS and what is or is not "Islamic."
As I write, Fox News reports a top Iraqi diplomat claims ISIS is harvesting organs and burning those victims alive to fund their operations. Add to that, Muslim jihadists beheaded 21 Coptic Christians last weekend, caged and burned a Jordanian pilot, threw homosexuals off buildings in Iraq, kidnapped and slaughtered thousands in Nigeria… I could go on….and on.
Honestly, the only place Obama's sanctimonious hog slop would not be questioned is a campus coffee shop where moral relativism rises thicker than pot smoke. Or in the mainstream media. Or, maybe a "Christian Left" sanctuary for social justice overflowing with condemnation and calls for retribution.
A global survey of 68 countries (including our allies) at the end of 2013 conducted by Gallup and the Worldwide Independent Network now rates America as the biggest threat to world peace on the planet. Pakistan was the runner up, closely followed by China. Afghanistan, Iran, Israel and North Korea equally tied for fourth place.
As the chaotic healthcare enrollment period grinds to a halt this week, it is clear that Obamacare has changed America.
Attendees at the 2012 Democrat National Committee convention in Charlotte were asked to whip out their state-issued IDs in the same state (NC) where 30,000 dead people were found on its voter rolls. And just last month, NAACP organizers for a "Moral March" rallying against photo ID laws told marchers to bring photo identification to participate. Oh, the hypocrisy!
GOP beware: Although another Harvard poll found that 52 percent of young millennials and 47 percent of the elders want Obama ousted -- Millennials love you less -- thanks to Republican dinosaurs like Mitch McConnell, John McCain, Lindsey Graham, and others -- who pollute the conservative message.
During the March 5, 2014 House Oversight Committee hearing, former IRS official Lois Lerner invoked the Fifth Amendment…again. If it were not for being a part of the most "transparent" administration, one might think she had something to hide.
Sure, the military budget needs trimming, but to balance the budget on the backs of our patriots speaks volumes about where the administration's priorities really lie. What message, pray tell, are they communicating, when they tell a former war veteran to cough up more money for healthcare so some lazy basement dweller living off his parents can have his healthcare subsidized?
During a recent visit to California, President Obama reconfirmed he is a devout believer in man-caused climate change and policies he proposes show he is willing to risk the wellbeing of our families and harm the economic future of our country in support of an unsettled theory he believes is a settled science.
If five years of the Obama administration has taught us anything, it is that presidents do not need Congress to further their agenda. All they need is to surround themselves with "yes men" who share similar disrespect for the Constitution and its founders. It also helps to have a trusty pen and phone, as President Obama brags.
If I were the devil, I would not rest until I had undermined the foundation of -- and extinguished freedom's flame from -- America, the nation referred to as the world's last great hope – that shining city on a hill to which other nations of the world aspire.
While listening to the State of the Union (SOTU) address by the coolest president ever last week, I felt an odd chill go up my leg (because of the polar vortex) when I mused over why people loyally vote for and trust those who instinctively make things worse every time they try to fix something.
Mother Teresa shared her burden for the unborn, where she humbly asked American women to give "until it hurts" of her "plans," "free time" or those "dreams," as Obama put it. Mother Teresa described abortion as a war against children, saying if society accepts that a mother can kill her own child, the rest of society cannot be held to a higher standard.
Now that the truth has finally surfaced by way of the January 15, 2014 Senate Intelligence Committee report, we see that al-Qaeda affiliated networks were indeed responsible for the September 11, 2012 attacks in Benghazi, Libya. The finding stands in stark contrast to the yarns fed to us by President Obama, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and the administration at large, suggesting a video, not al Qaeda, inspired those attacks.
A recent column in Rolling Stone magazine revealed a recurring and troubling trend with young Millennials who have been brainwashed by professors preaching the Progressive dream of a welfare state.
Have you ever wondered why you vote the way you vote? It seems it is a little more complex and a little less comical than some would like to make it.
