You will not be pleased to know that both Rubio and Nelson voted to stop our food from being labeled GMO ....................  in other words, they protected Monsanto and left us out in the cold to be Monsanto's test subjects.

Remember when Fox News wasn’t ‘real news’?

We now know that the Justice Department kept exceptionally close tabs on Fox News reporter James Rosen in 2010, following his trips in and out of the State Department, hacking his personal emails and phone…

Memorial Day

 Honor the memory of the millions of people who have died to preserve our nation and the principles for which America stands as One Nation Under GOD!

This Memorial Day recognize the Global war on terror for what it is. The Blood, the gore, the be-headings and now the butchering of innocent people on the streets of our nation and around the world are examples of a war being waged between the Prince of Peace and principalities of evil for the control of the minds of people and the…

The food was also excellent.Micheal Jackson did a good job, and Rick Hartley was the hit of the day in the dunking booth. I will be sure to put this on my calendar for next year. Thanks to all that worked on this event.

Scandals Support Smaller Government

If any good has come from the multitude of scandals swirling around the Obama administration these days, it is this; that the platform from upon which we propose conservative ideas and solutions is sound.

Regardless of any legal or political outcome with regard to the shady actions and lack of accountability of the IRS on conservative profiling, the Justice Department’s attack upon News organization’s right to free press and the State Department’s dismissal of bureacratic bumbling in…

Florida Theatre Summer Movie Classic "The Great Escape" on Aug 4,

I am usually a fan of these movie showings by the Florida Theatre.  But I am having some trouble understanding the movie graphic that they posted to advertise this movie, The Great Escape, to be shown on August 4.

It is labeled " A Glorious Saga of the G.O.P."  The graphic has been photo-shopped.  It shows Mitt Romney, Sen John McCain, Mayor Rudy Giuliani, and  President Bush all fleeing the compound.

The irony of showing Sen John McCain, an actual POW, in such a graphic just…

Homeland Security monitors tea party at Florida IRS protest

This action by DHS wasn't just Florida.  It was everywhere which is another instance of targeting since they never bother the unions or OWS and these folks really are violent while there is not one single instance of tea party violence.  We respect the law and those who uphold it (but not those who break it).  Below is a quote from a comment on the article..................thought it was point on so sharing.

IMMIGRATION BILL ACTION ITEM and Brigitte Gabriel Reminder

Congress will begin working on the immigration aka Amnesty Bill when they return from the Memorial Day Holiday. I suggest that we all copy and save the information below. Call every single day. We must not let them think that this is not critical to us and the future of our country. The Benghazi issue, the AP phone tapping issue, the IRS issue, and whatever else they toss at us will not create chaos in our work. Stay focused on each issue. Give this one the…

Letter about Market Fairness Act we need to get our representatives to sign and support


 This is a letter we need to ask our representatives to sign.  The short list of those who have is included, and many names are missing.  Of course, Crenshaw signed on as a co sponsor for the bill, so probably he won't change his mind.

Loss of Trust

Subject: Loss of Trust

Loss of Trust is rarely one thing but rather the cumulative effect of many small and sometimes major events.  Loss of trust is further eroded when the obvious errors or omissions are denied.  When the loss of trust is linked to abuse of power and/or cover-ups the need for change becomes obvious. 

Leadership, be it Political, Military, Civil, Corporate or any other…

RYAN NICHOLS - Hardened Criminal?? Seriously??

If you're not already aware. This is what's going on in DC while dangerous criminals are allowed back out on the streets.  It's horrifying that this is happening to our citizens and veterans for protesting the hijacking of our election process. This is still happening! They are STILL being tortured and treated like full on terrorists. 

You may not be aware of the typical things they're forced to go through...…
