Those who say that parenting is the world’s toughest job know from experience. Parenting is perhaps the toughest job, because much of that job involves ensuring that your child is protected.
Protecting a child is not limited to their physical safety, however.
Children are susceptible to mental torment, and historically, the most common form of torment has been schoolyard bullying.
With the immersion of technology in young people's’ lives however, bullying is no longer confined to the schoolyard. Read More
With all the lies and corruption that have been spilled by Wikileaks about the collusion between mainstream media and the Democratic party, the DNC, and Hillary Clinton, you'd think that "finally, it's all been exposed for everyone to see."
Except that so many liberals aren't exposed to this news. Liberals fiercely dedicated to the likes of CNN, ABC, Politico, BBC, MSNBC, etc. simply aren't seeing this news. Why would they? The lefty-bias that mainstream media hugs to themselves like a five-year old and his teddy bear gains nothing by letting their viewers and readers know the truth.
Too many people are unaware that MSNBC was being told what to do by the DNC. That Politico is on a leash for the Democrats. That the Washington Post has a DNC-Clinton shill on their payroll. And too many more to post here. Read More
Our government has indulged in incredible financial and economic irresponsibility. They have made a series of disastrous monetary decisions. So, how can you rely on the very people who are breaking our system to help you?
We have a president who has spent more money and put every citizen of the United States of America into more debt than any other president in history. We have record numbers of people who are no longer working in the labor force, despite the government's doctored unemployment numbers. Economic data is terrible. Retail sales are terrible. Corporate earnings are horrible. The stock market is falling because the Fed has raised the interest rate a teeny tiny quarter of a percent, but our economy is too weak to handle even that. All of this is going to lead to more businesses losing money and more people losing their jobs.
Which brings me to what this article is about. Helping you take control of your life and being able to take your ideas and successfully turn them into reality. Now is the time to understand that you can achieve the life you desire, even in these dismal economic times. Read More
For those of us living in the United States, a nation that has experienced more than two hundred years of unparalleled liberty, it is easy to take for granted the extraordinary gifts we have been given...
The majority of human beings have never even thought about the possibility of living under the protection of a government that would honor their individual rights or grant them freedom...
The modern day we live in, with the unimaginable blessings of freedom and liberty, is the aberration, not the norm. Further, simply because freedom exists today does not guarantee this gift will survive for future generations... Read More
We grow up being taught that government watches out for us (it's no accident that government funded schools teach us this). We think they are like a parent looking out for our best interests. We are told that government are people we vote in so they must represent the people.
Well, at a time when government approval rates are at their lowest in 60 years; a time when the digital age of information reveals many of the crimes and corruption going on in the higher ranks of power in our country; any thinking individual can easily conclude that these are just humans in these positions of power. And people are flawed. ALL of human history shows that power corrupts people and when given too much of it, people fight to the death to keep it. Read More
Anti-Americanism from abroad would not be such a problem if Americans were united in standing up for their own country. But in this country itself, there are those who blame America for most of the evils in the world. On the political left, many fault the United States for a history of slavery, and for continuing inequality and racism. Even on the right, traditionally the home of patriotism, we hear influential figures say that America has become so decadent that we are “slouching towards Gomorrah.”
But the critics are wrong about America, because they are missing the big picture. In their indignation over the sins of America, they ignore what is unique and good about American civilization. Read More
It is 10pm, September 14, 2015 and I am visiting family in Sydney, Australia. Something just happened 15 minutes ago that would, with good reason, shock any American.
Australia's prime minister, Tony Abbot, was challenged by someone in his own liberal party, Malcolm Turnbull, to become the new prime minister today. Within 8 hours of Turnbull announcing his challenge, and a vote of 100 government people, the entire country of Australia just got saddled with a new prime minister they didn't elect. Read More
Here in Australia, everything is outrageously expensive!! Way more than even Europe. Especially housing. Yesterday, the Brit and I had lunch at a sweet, cozy spot with a burning fire in a fireplace in Manly Beach overlooking the ocean. Our server was an American and I immediately started chatting him up about why he was in Australia and his experiences here. Read More
Has your stock portfolio just had a scary roller coaster dip? Feel like you might have a heart attack with last week's perpetual drops in the stock market?
Today, the S&P 500 was halted for the first time in history. The DOW saw the biggest intraday drop EVER. Stocks are falling all over the world. It's frightening stuff if you have a significant portion of your savings and investments in the stock market. Who is everyone blaming for this? China, of course. Especially mainstream media.
But China is not to blame. The Federal Reserve is to blame. Read More
A disastrous three million gallon toxic mining waste spill into Colorado's Animas River, caused by the Environmental Protection Agency, is proving to Americans, yet again, that when the government is the culprit, no one is held accountable. Their actions show that government thinks so highly of itself and it is not subject to the same laws that the rest of us are.
“If a mining operator or other private business caused the spill to occur, the EPA would be all over them…the EPA admits fault and, as such, must be accountable and held to the same standard.” Read More
My respect and applause goes out to Jesse Bartholomew, a baker, who happens to be gay, had the courage to stand up and tell fellow gays the truth about their appalling behavior in this 2 minute video.
Jesse expresses his frustration with fellow gays about the fact that they are punishing Christian bakers who have declined to bake their wedding cakes.
He has a really wonderful point. WHY would you even want someone who has a different view than you working on such a personal part of your wedding? There are so many bakers to go to, why focus on the one that has religious views that conflict with yours?
Because this isn't about cake. This isn't about hurt feelings. This is about ego. And punishing. Read More
Want to know what happens if you try to order a wedding cake for a gay wedding from a Muslim bakery?
Yeah, I did too!
Which is why I watched and posted this great video by Steve Crowder showing Muslims exercising their freedom of religion. And gays and liberals are NOT MAKING A STINK ABOUT IT! The hypocrisy is colossal. Read More
It's been a few weeks since the Supreme Court ruled for legalizing gay marriage in all 50 states. This is not a 'done and move on' deal. The repercussions from this decision will continue to be felt in America's future in ways most of us haven't considered.
This has nothing to do with not wanting equality for people, but everything to do with one group of people wanting something and violating the moral, just and lawful way of achieving it.
Unfortunately, many people seem to be ignoring the fact that the Obergefell vs. Hodges ruling violated the principles of America's judicial system, our religious liberties, our social structures, and our legal system.
Here are 3 important reasons why I think the Supreme Court's gay marriage ruling hurts America's integrity and deteriorates our freedoms. Read More
I am sitting in one of the freest nations in the world right now. I'm sipping my coffee in my office overlooking a beautiful swimming pool in a landscaped garden of flowers and palm trees. High rise buildings, subway stations, and corporate developments are going up everywhere around me because of the abundance of capital in the country. Porsches, Bentleys, Mercedes, and any other car brand that could possibly make you salivate zooms by on the road below. The buzz of activity is everywhere and loads of people are hurrying to lunch before heading back to work. The unemployment rate is 1.9%. Taxes are some of the lowest in the world. Anywhere from 0-20% Read More
“There comes a time in the history of nations when fear and complacency allow power to accumulate and liberty and privacy to suffer,” said presidential candidate Rand Paul. He went on, “that time is now, and I will not let the Patriot Act, the most unpatriotic of acts, go unchallenged.”
As I write this, Senator Rand Paul has taken to the Senate floor today in a filibuster to protest the renewal of the Patriot Act. The Patriot Act is a Bush administration-era law that enables government surveillance on everyday Americans. He wants the government to "stop spying on innocent Americans" in the name of "safety."
