Senator Lee Makes the Case for Cut, Cap, and Balance

This is a great set of videos, simply explaining why real changes need to occur in Washington.  First of all, is the introduction of the “Cut, Cap, & Balance Act” in July 7, 2011, by Senator Mike Lee, a very capable and sensible senator from Utah.

From the same announcement is a discussion of “Revenue Increases” that might find support from the GOP. Continue reading “Senator Lee Makes the Case for Cut, Cap, and Balance”


Twitter Town Hall

From Gary Bauer, on July 7:

Yesterday President Obama held the first Twitter town hall event, answering questions from Twitter users all over the country. Fortunately for the president, he did not have to limit his responses to 140 characters.

Independence Day

Unfortunately we often refer to day as “The Fourth of July” and forget why today is a holiday.  I am trying, and I suggest everyone also try, to call today “Independence Day.”  After all we don’t say “February 14th”–we say Valentine’s Day.  We don’t even say “The First of January” even though that one IS significant.

Instead, we should remember just what makes today important.  It’s the day we remember and celebrate declaring our independence as a country–July 4, 1776.  To forget our country’s heritage put’s us in danger of losing what makes our country great!

So I wish everyone an happy Independence Day, but more importantly, a day of remembering our great country!
