Say thank you to a Veteran

Watch the video:

On this blog, I have argued with presidents (Republican and Democratic), the Senate, the House, pundits and many others. This is political discourse. It isn’t perfect but it is much better than the nothing that many countries have. I thank Veterans for Freedom that I have to blog, speak, write and work.

Thanks to all of the American Veterans.

Facts About Juneteenth

(I thought that I would re-post this. Enjoy.)

What is Juneteenth?

Juneteenth for 2011 will be observed on Sunday, June 19.

Will Romney apologize?

Will Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney apologize to President Obama? Will he apologize to the State Department? Will he apologize to the American people? It was only a couple weeks ago when Mitt Romney said, “this is a dark day for freedom, and a day of shame for this administration.” He was talking about the Chinese dissident, Chen Guangcheng, who landed in New York City late last night. Mitt Romney, without all the facts, decided to bash the Obama administration when it turns out Obama, Clinton and others in the Obama administration and the State department were doing exactly the right thing. They were patient. They did what was necessary without compromising American values and were able to obtain the freedom that this Chinese activist wanted. Shame on Mitt for trying to score political points without having all of the facts. (more…)
