To Bomb or not to Bomb

The Senate Foreign Relations Committee has voted to authorize President Obama to take action against Syria in response to their use of chemical weapons against their own people.  Three of the most well known Republicans have voted with the majority.  The Republicans were Senators John McCain, Jeff Flake, and Bob Corker.  This resolution will now […]

The Fighting in the Middle East

For the time being, a war in the Middle East has been averted.  A new agreement was signed.  Apparently, Hamas has agreed to not fire missiles at Israel and Israel will relax the embargo against Gaza.  We’ll see how long that lasts. If you so desire, you can be a Christian or a Muslim and […]

Mitt in the Promised Land

The Value of War

Memorial Day 2012 has come and gone.  We have flown our flags, visited military cemeteries, and have done other things to show proper respect for those who lost their lives fighting America’s wars.  They deserve all that we can bestow.  Even more. Our leaders who led them into premature deaths, well, not so much.  In […]
