A war memorial in Woonsocket, RI, that has been standing for over 90 years faces the very real threat of being removed. The Freedom From Religion Foundation has filed a lawsuit claiming that the cross that is part of the memorial is a violation of their precious ‘separation of church and state.’ Although the mayor and other town officials are defending the memorial, chances are the FFRF is going to get its way as Woonsocket is facing bankruptcy and does not have the money to defend the case in court. How typical of bullies, picking on someone who can’t defend themselves … Kudos to the Governor of Mississippi, one Phil Bryant, for speaking the truth on Democrats, saying their ‘one mission in life is to abort children.’ Naturally, Mississippi Democrats are all up-in-arms. The truth hurts, doesn’t it? … Obama is heavily relying on the youth vote to get him re-elected this fall. However, a new poll indicates that those under 30 are far less likely to vote than those over 30. Well, that’s good that many of them are not inclined to support Obama. However, the overall aversion to voting and participating in civic affairs shown by the young people of this nation is a terrible sign for the future of this country … VP Joe Biden: ‘I promise you, the president has a big stick.’ Cue the Beavis & Butthead laughter … America isn’t alone in its embrace of Marxism. Look no further than France. A supposedly ‘conservative’ president failed to confront the many pressing issues facing his dying nation, and is now poised to lose to a Socialist. Does this sound familiar? When so-called ‘conservatives’ fail to live up to their promises (think George W. Bush), the people will turn to the hard left for solutions (Obama.) Exactly what happened in America, and exactly what is happening to France. And both countries are steadily heading into the dustbin of history. Proof positive why we need to hold ‘conservatives’ accountable at every turn, which is something that lay conservatives frankly did a miserable job of during the Bush 43 years …

As if parents in America don’t have enough to worry about, teenagers are now getting drunk off of hand sanitizer. Seriously, whatever happened to raiding the parents’ liquor cabinet? I’m not saying teenagers should have unlimited access to booze, but it couldn’t possibly be any worse for them than drinking freaking hand sanitizer, or sniffing glue, or any of the other myriad of ways one can get a buzz off of common household products. These kids are going to get high no matter what we do, that sad fact of life needs to be acknowledged. Right now, we’re just making it far more dangerous and deadly for them to do so. It’s funny, a lot of kids are getting sick – and even dying in extreme cases – from getting buzzes off of these household items. And yet, marijuana is illegal, but causes absolutely no one to be hospitalized or die.  Just saying … The cable television service Music Choice has ‘updated’ its look. I hate it, and I don’t think I’m alone …
