    one issue I lean right on.

    death penalty. yeah. if there's no reasonable doubt that someone sadistically murdered another person, just for fun, that person should die. child rapists and murderers should die. no need to waste money keeping them alive, or on death row for decades. if I, personally saw...

    With Memorial Day weekend upon us,

    I would ask that you keep a good thought for all of those who have made the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom. Although what today's military is doing is not as clear cut and easy to understand as in earlier times, the United States is still a damn fine place to live and raise...

    Zimmerman Trial What Really Happened?

    No trial has divided this country in such a way since the O.J. Simpson trial. One of the biggest reasons is the media’s decision to exert their power and try to influence public opinion. The most noteworthy example is NBC and their edited 911 tape of Zimmerman’s call in. What...

    Why do other countries hate us

    so much? Why do they feel the need to terrorize us? Attack us? Threaten us? Kill our people? Our friends? Our loved ones? Why are they keeping our soldiers captive and chopping their heads off? For what? To send us a message? What message? The only message they're sending us is...

    The fact that some of these "proud Americans"

    are holding on to a flag that is associated with so many evils is just another reason why I am working on moving away. If not out of the country, then at least out of the south. Everyone deserves to be happy and I will find my little slice of happiness.
