    Excerpted from BizPac Review: ost freedom-loving Americans celebrated the recently reported news that Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor granted an order on Dec. 31 to temporarily halt the Obamacare mandate requiring the Little Sisters of the Poor to offer contraception. When Attorney General Eric Holder dug in to fight the Little Sisters, country rock icon and conservative tweeter Charlie Daniels offered his encouragement to the nuns.

    President Obama has made the statement that the U.S. Constitution is a flawed document. It is not a president's job to decide the merits of the Constitution but rather to enforce it as it is, or convene enough states to call for a constitutional convention and change it. It is not in his purvey or power to decide whether to enforce and defend it, it is in his oath of office and when he in any way refuses to abide by every sentence in the document, he violates his oath.

    There is an old worn out cliché of a political joke that goes, "How can you tell when a politician is lying? His lips are moving." And while this is somewhat overstating the situation, lately, it seems that every few days we are reminded that all too often it's true. Of course, this is nothing new and follows no strata of government or party line and, unfortunately, is fairly common at city halls, state legislatures and is not unknown on either end of Pennsylvania Avenue.

    Being born in the Deep South when the Jim Crow laws were in full force and seeing, firsthand, the cruelty and downright stubborn foolishness of segregation and all it's attendant inequities, I have a very vivid and candid impression of what the word "racist" really means. Having lived through those days and, on my own, shook off the yoke of racial prejudice that was once so firmly ingrained in me, I deeply resent the careless and reckless use of the word by people who are merely trying to be insulting, having absolutely no idea of the gravity of it's meaning....

As Christians prepare to celebrate Easter the cornerstone of our faith, the resurrection of Jesus Christ, our President has told the planet Earth that America is no longer a Christian nation, and of all the things he's said that really upset me this is the most egregious and besides that; it is a downright lie. I don't have to go into the well-known fact that America was discovered and settled by Christians and has since it's inception been founded on Judeo-Christian values. Why Judeo-Christian? Because Jews and Christians, despite their many differences, worship the same...

For example, "terrorism" will now be referred to as "man-caused disasters" and the Global War on Terror will now be referred to as "Overseas Contingency Operation [1]."

I've gotten used to learning about crooked politicians but this guy Blagojevich is either extremely brazen or just plain hillbilly dumb. Even knowing that he was under investigation for corruption, he was legally taped on the telephone talking about the rewards he could reap by appointing certain people to the Senate.

In an interview from 2001, he actually called it a charter of "negative liberties" and expressed his dissatisfaction about the fact that the Constitution expresses the limits of the power the federal government has over the individual and doesn't have a list of things the government is required to do for the...

It was an example of Obama thinking on his feet without having Teleprompters or days to prepare for a question, but in my opinion, Obama told the truth about the extent of his socialistic plans for America. Evidently the question and the answer must have been embarrassing to the...

    Today is Oct. 28, 2007 and at about 2 am EST this morning, I turned seventy-one years old. In some ways it doesn't seem possible. It seems that the years have just flickered past in an exciting wonderful, multicolored, roller coaster ride, a fast moving epic played out on the highways and concert stages of the world. But to view my life in that light would be selective thinking, looking at the bricks and ignoring the mortar that holds it together. It takes highs and lows, good times and bad, ups, downs and sideways to make up a life and...

    n a recent interview I was doing, the subject came up about the social metamorphosis our nation has been through in the last half-century or so. The loss of closeness among old friends, the non-stop lives most of us live and the lack of family unity. Thinking and talking about such things started me remembering some of the things I feel have given my life stability. Simple things that leave indelible impressions on a young mind and gives you a long lasting sense of well being. For instance, it used to be that on a summer evening if you walked...

    I just checked out the Charlie Daniels' website and this really was taken from that.  I've never cared much for his music but reading his website is quite interesting and he seems to have quite a testimony. Text from site; There are probably some of you folks out there who are wondering why we didn't appear on the CMT Country Freedom Concert for the Salvation Army to benefit the victims of the September 11th Attack on America. We were announced and scheduled and had every intention of doing the show, until we gave the CMT folks the lyrics to a ...

    You people in Washington claim to know the mind of the American people. I beg to differ with you and would offer up in evidence just how out of touch you are with the American people by reminding you of what happened when you tried to shove that ridiculous Amnesty Bill down our throats. (SNIP) But the truth of the matter is that I am more afraid of you and your ilk than I am of the terrorists.

    Run John Run After all these years of being bitterly disappointed in the integrity, or lack thereof, of people running for public office I'd think that I'd heard and seen it all. But John Edwards has broken some new ground bringing the things people are willing to do to get votes to a new low. Can you believe that Edwards has actually made the statement that there is no war on terror? That it's just a slogan, a bumper sticker being used by the Bush administration to cover up its mistakes? If Edwards actually believes that, I consider him a...

    Sandy Tucker, co-founder of the Galilean Children's Home in Casey County, died of complications from cancer Monday at St. Joseph Hospital in Lexington. She was 62. Mrs. Tucker, who raised her two biological children and more than 800 others over a span of more than 35 years, had been battling cancer off and on since 2000. She initially was thought to have had colon cancer, but later it was determined that the cancer had started in her ovaries, according to those who knew her. Mrs. Tucker and her husband, Jerry, took in abused, disabled and unwanted children from throughout the...

    For the first time in my life I am seriously worried about the future of the land I love. It seems that the politicians we sent to Washington to represent us have either taken leave of their senses or are so out of touch with their constituencies that they seem to live on another planet. The hottest button issue in the country is the pandemic illegal immigrant problem that plagues every facet of American life these days and yet the Congress, Senate and the President seem intent on passing a piece of legislation which could well have America taking the...

    I think it was Shakespeare who said that a rose by any other name would smell as sweet. Well political correctness and the stuff we shovel out of the barnyard after the bulls have spent the night have a similar odor. For instance, tell me what is the difference between an Islamic terrorist who gets on a bus in Jerusalem with a suicide vest and blows up a load of innocent women and children and an Islamic terrorist who sets a bomb on a train in London or Madrid? What differentiates between an Islamic terrorist who runs a plane loaded...
