We must stay active
By Armand C. Hale
January 1, 2011

The new year of 2011 must be made into a turning point where "we the people" must stay permanently active in the politics of our federal, state and most importantly local levels. No longer do we have the luxury of just voting and then going home. Any time our elected officials serving us that come under attack, when laws are pushed to take away your liberties, when any elected officials fail to do what we want, and when government on any level darns to "try to tell us what's best for us," we must mobilize ourselves with all the resolve of the first tea party and the shot heard round the world.

We must make a supreme effort to protect all children from the influences of the Communists Marxist forces and immorality that is ramped in entertainment, T.V., schools and cults. We must teach them the alternative to this pernicious poison. Mainly the Judeo-Christians values, God and country, integrity, service before self, chastity and the value of the unborn. Hitler had it right, control the youth and you control the future and the world. (JMJ)

Mr. Obama WE, the People, Are Still Coming

One must reflect on where we were when the gauntlet was thrown down in front of us, how we have united to a common purpose and the gains we've made in two short years. We can't forget what we fight for and we MUST remain united and focused in the coming year. Perhaps this video will help re-energize our unity and focus!

Disgraced Teacher Enjoys Well-Paid 13th Year in 'Rubber Room' After Sexually Molesting 6th Grade Student

If this one doesn't make your blood boil, I'm not sure what will! Is it any wonder the schools are broken and the states are broke with this stuff going on? This is why we need to get involved in the local levels particularly in the local schools. My question is, why is this person not facing criminal prosecution. Where is the D.A.? Where are the protests? Please read Posted on December 27, 2010 at 4:34pm by Meredith Jessup

Is this really the Department of HOMELAND SECURITY

I am at a loss for words now that we have the Southern Poverty Law Center buried deep in the bowels of this administrations HOMELAND SECURITY DEPARTMENT. Whatever the case this is getting way out of hand and it is quite obvious that the Secretary of DHS is incompetent and aloof about what is and what isn't a priority for this REPUBLICS HOMELAND SECURITY. Instead of our border take a look at some of these. It is no wonder why the targeting is done by the "Terrorists." We do not know what a TARGET is! Source: Source:

We must stay permanently active in politics. We could lose all the ground made with the socialist/communist back in control of Congress again. We must be vigilant, not arrogant but humble and pray for God's help in this battle of good against evil. Amen.

God Bless our country in 2011...
