    I've been getting Email, telephone calls and FRmail from people asking "Are you planning to evacuate because of the crisis?" Well, no, actually, I'm not. North Korea has made these threats towards Guam before. They made the same threats at least twice when Mr Obama was President. Even if they carry out the threats it is doubtful they have the missile technology to actually land a warhead within 100 miles this 11 mile wide by 38 mile long little island. If a missile does get close then Guam is protected by batteries of THAAD anti-ballistic-missile missiles. If the situation starts...
  • California Man Incensed Over Girl’s Lemonade Stand Calls Cops– Doesn’t Get the Response He Hoped for

    It’s always exciting as a parent when your child demonstrates the desire and drive to work hard and earn something. Running a lemonade stand is one of the simplest, best ways for youngsters to dip their toes into the working world. Like many, my kids have created stands on several occasions, and it’s inspiring to watch them learn and grow through the experience. No book can teach your kid the value of a dollar. Working outside in the hot sun all day long most certainly can. So, one California dad was pleased when his daughter decided she’d try to take...
  • David Gregory: Trump Like ‘Old Man Yelling Get off His Lawn’

    On CNN this morning, David Gregory, speaking of President Trump’s tweeting—and specifically, those from this weekend criticizing the judge who blocked his executive order on immigration—said: “he sounds like an old man sitting on his porch yelling at somebody to get off his lawn.” Added Gregory: “you’ve had in the first 18 days, successive weekends where he has completely derailed what his administration is trying to do with a kind of personal indulgence by attacking people personally, launching an attack on the separation of powers. But what it really comes down to is this obsession with himself, and I think...

    President-elect Donald Trump ran into one of his most critical biographers while golfing Friday on his course in Florida, Politico reported. Trump reportedly asked Harry Hurt III, who wrote "Lost Tycoon: The Many Lives of Donald J. Trump" in 1993, to leave after Hurt offered Trump congratulations on his presidential victory. The book sparked a feud between the two, as it included Ivana Trump's accusations that Trump had raped her, an allegation Trump has repeatedly denied. According to Politico's report, Trump criticized Hurt's biography on the golf course, leading to a heated exchange Hurt shared on Facebook, which Politico said...

    An off-duty New Jersey state trooper chased after three unarmed teenagers and shot at them early Sunday after they accidentally knocked on his door, officials said Wednesday. Trooper Kissinger Barreau told investigators he believed the teens were trying to break into his Sparta home, CBS New York reported. Police said they are investigating the shooting, but Barreau remains on active duty and hasn’t faced any charges. One of the teens, 18-year-old Jesse Barkhorn, said he and his friends were dropping people off after a party Sunday. They mistakenly knocked on the trooper’s door, having mistaken it for a friend's house,...

    As you prepare for the IRS to start monitoring your health insurance and make your medical records accessible to thousands, perhaps you also should vacuum your floor, wash the windows and lock up any weapons, should you be so unwise as to actually have them. It’s all in readiness for Obamacare, which will include home visits for many citizens, maybe even everyone, depending on the interpretation of the law.

    Why do so many cashiers give you change in such a sloppy manner? It seems that cashiers these days do not get any training whatsoever in properly giving you back your change. Back in the 1970s, when I was starting out in the workforce, I had several jobs that involved taking in money and giving change back to customers. Now we did not have those cash registers that automatically calculate your change. So I had to figure it out in my head. Even today, I can instantly calculate the change from a $20 bill. For example, a purchase of $11.56...

    Man oh man. What is happening to our society? Where are all of these people coming from all of the sudden? People parking in Handicapped spots that walk completely fine and then pull down the placard as they drive away. Ignorant people that cut in line at the deli, amusement park or shows. Parents on cell phone calls as their crazed kids run around uncontrollably. I ain't perfect, nor am I one of those people that said "when I was young..." Because I feel a lot of these teens have more "manners" than most adults and younger kids. WTH is...

    It may not come as surprising news to many of you that the United Nations doesn’t approve of our Second Amendment. Not one bit. And they very much hope to do something about it with help from some powerful American friends. Under the guise of a proposed global “Small Arms Treaty” premised to fight “terrorism”, “insurgency” and “international crime syndicates” you can be quite certain that an even more insidious threat is being targeted – our Constitutional right for law-abiding citizens to own and bear arms.

  • ACORN, Obama Behind Plan To Dump Garbage On Speaker Boehner’s Home?

    04/09/2011 10:36:10 AM PDT · by Michael van der Galien · 36 replies
    The Democratic Party is officially encouraging supporters to go to Speaker John Boehner’s house and dump garbage on his lawn in order to intimidate him into rubber-stamping President Obama’s destructive spending spree. Such protests can easily turn violent, especially with the tense, hyper-partisan atmosphere on Capitol Hill right now. Is it a coincidence that not long after longtime ACORN operative Patrick Gaspard took over as executive director of the Democratic National Committee the DNC is planning destructive ACORN-like protests? Not bloody likely. As chief of the DNC’s day-to-day operations, Gaspard runs Organizing for America, the Saul Alinsky-inspired organization created to...

  • EPA: Greenhouse gases endanger human health

    12/07/2009 7:27:59 AM PST · by janetjanet998 · 131 replies · 4,117+ views
    WASHINGTON – Officials tell The Associated Press that the Environmental Protection Agency has concluded greenhouse gases are endangering people's health and must be regulated. The EPA will announced its findings at a news conference Monday. The announcement is timed to boost the Obama administration's arguments at an international climate conference — beginning this week — that the United States is taking actions to combat global warming, even though Congress has yet to act on climate legislation. Under a Supreme Court ruling, the so-called endangerment finding is needed before the EPA can regulate carbon dioxide and five other greenhouse gases released...

    PHOENIX — An Arizona sheriff known for aggressively cracking down on illegal immigration has been stripped of some of his special power to enforce federal immigration law, and he claims the Obama administration is taking away his authority for political reasons. Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio, whose office faces racial profiling allegations over crime and immigration sweeps in some heavily Latino areas of metro Phoenix, said officials from Washington won't let him renew a deal that let his deputies make federal immigration arrests

    Has Earth's fever broken? Official government measurements show that the world's temperature has cooled a bit since reaching its most recent peak in 1998. That's given global warming skeptics new ammunition to attack the prevailing theory of climate change. The skeptics argue that the current stretch of slightly cooler temperatures means that costly measures to limit carbon dioxide emissions are ill-founded and unnecessary. Proposals to combat global warming are "crazy" and will "destroy more than a million good American jobs and increase the average family's annual energy bill by at least $1,500 a year," the Heartland Institute, a conservative research...
  • The sad decline of music: Cole Porter vs. The Beatles

    Paul McCartney has once again crept upon our shores. He was, of course, vanguard in the original “British Invasion”, which occurred in early 1964. Now, an invasion is something to be resisted, to be fought off, to be repelled. Sadly—quite, quite sadly—we had no Winston Churchill on our shores to boost our morale with stirring words like these: 'We shall go on to the end, we shall fight in New York, we shall fight on the seas and oceans, we shall fight with growing confidence and growing strength in the air, we shall defend our Culture, whatever the cost may...

    On any American street, or in any airport or mall, you see the same sad tableau: A 10-year-old boy is walking with his father, whose development was evidently arrested when he was that age, judging by his clothes. Father and son are dressed identically -- running shoes, T-shirts. And jeans, always jeans. If mother is there, she, too, is draped in denim. Writer Daniel Akst has noticed and has had a constructive conniption. He should be given the Presidential Medal of Freedom. He has earned it by identifying an obnoxious misuse of freedom. Writing in the Wall Street Journal, he...
