    A nine-year old cheerleader stood alone at a football game as the fathers of her squadmates lifted their daughters onto their shoulders. Addie Rodriguez was alone because her father Abel is undergoing military training in California. “It was truly unfortunate to see your daughter standing out there being the only one without their father, knowing why he’s away. It’s not just an absentee parent. He’s serving our country,” Addie’s mom Alexis Perry-Rodriguez said. Enter San Antonio teenager Matthew Garcia. And what an entrance. Seeing Addie’s situation, Matthew — a senior at Central Catholic High School — vaulted two fences as...

I am not a Trump supporter and will not vote for him under any reasonably foreseeable circumstances, but I respect the house rules. If Trump is FR's candidate I...

Just got on with thought." Red State at approximately 9:30 this morning, disinvited him from the Red State Gathering this weekend. He was supposed to speak today. I supported him since he jumped into the race, but, I think Donald finally went too far. Scary, because now he will probably run as a Third Party.

    How's this for proof hidden in plain sight? We received an email from Islamic scholar IQ al Rassooli containing a sequence of 10 photos which we converted into a video. It is brilliant. You can never "un-see" the two pictures at the end. Muslims have a hand sign that silently communicates the Shadaha, meaning, "The only god is Allah and Mohammed his prophet." The index finger is extended vertically to symbolize "one god." It is chilling watching the photos in this video: You can bet that 100% of the Muslims of the world viewing these photos of Obama know...

    The Supreme Court’s recent decision not to take up challenges to state amendments banning same-sex marriage has had two significant effects – it has expanded marriage to 30 states and reignited the political conversation around marriage equality in the 2014 midterms. Since 2011, I have worked with Project Right Side to help Republican leaders navigate a radically changing electorate on the freedom to marry. While public acceptance of marriage equality has steadily increased, this moment may ultimately be looked upon as the point where Republican opposition to marriage equality began to fall in earnest. According to a recent poll of...

    “Don’t let the lobbyists win” should be the rallying call of Barack Obama to congress when he unveils wide-ranging measures aimed at curbing gun violence. Following the shooting of 27 people, including 12 children, at a school in Newton Connecticut at the end of last year, the gun debate has been at the top of most people’s discussion list and congress has to seriously consider the measures Obama is set to propose – similar to those passed in New York on Tuesday. In addressing these measures, congress cannot let powerful lobbying groups such as the NRA sway them with various...

I found a huge website that everybody should know about, it covers everything from your hometown and state, science, religion and politics. As long as you follow their rules, you can have a good entertaining discussion. I use a different monikar there, but it's...

As a lifelong conservative, I am concerned about the possibility (probability?) of Mitt Romney receiving the GOP nomination for president next year.

    Karl Denninger was one of the founders of the Tea Party back just a few years ago when some concerned conservatives wanted to fire back at the government for what they said was unjust practices. Today, similar sentiments are being echoed by the Occupy Wall Street movement. Is it right to make comparisons between the two groups? Denninger says that, yes, to some degree the comparisons are indeed accurate. The Occupy movement, however, can learn from some of the mistakes that he says the Tea Party succumbed to. “The problem with protests and the political process is that it is...

    I just started as a student in a college course called American Government. The textbook is extremely slanted and this version was obviously updated after the mid-term elections in order to rouse up the young vote for Obama in 2012. The target audience of this textbook is 18-25 years-olds (the main age bracket of college students who would be taking an introductory/transfer political course), and for many of them this may be their first exposure to current events in politics. The following excerpt is one example of how the textbook portrays the unappreciative, angry tea party and the extremely productive...

    Perry's announcement speech got positive coverage, but the media's approach has been growing increasingly negative. Perry has been very visible, voluble, and controversial, and the media have been portraying him as something verging on a loose cannon. One example was his response to a question about whether President Obama loves his country. Perry said the questioner would have to ask Obama--which left the impression that Perry has doubts about the president's patriotism. Another example came yesterday, when Perry called global warming "a scientific theory that has not been proven and from my perspective is more and more being put into...

In a speech outlining Israeli policy in Meso- and North America, Netanyahu on Thursday sided with the Mexicans’ opening position a day ahead of a visit to Washington. U.S. residents are vehemently opposed to returning to the 1847 borders. The battle of borders in the Middle Southwest is...

This 'backward lean' is the very 'ponziness' of the debacle because the youngest group has no one to lean upon, hence they will be defrauded. The crucial problem is that our government has enacted socialistic and immoral institutions into law such as Social Security and Medicare, which are cloaked in many high-moral sounding themes. But if you are a great grandchild (or later) of the 1930's New Deal era, you will grievously and forever be a dining table server at the Ponzi Scheme Banquet...
