Proclamation of Thanksgiving

Proclamation of Thanksgiving This proclamation set the precedent for America's national day of Thanksgiving.

Sarah Josepha Hale, a 74-year-old magazine editor, wrote a letter to Lincoln on September 28, 1863, urging him to have the "day of our annual Thanksgiving made a National and fixed Union Festival." She explained, "You may have observed that, for some years past, there has been an increasing interest felt in our land to have the Thanksgiving held on the same day, in all the States; it now needs National recognition and authoritive fixation, only, to become permanently, an American custom and institution."

Gun Myths in America

Those who want to control everyone are good at spinning myths Nothing was ever won without struggle and without common sense. This is especially true when it comes to the Second Amendment, The gun debate in this country is full of myths, half-truths, and creatively present facts - which makes it hard for the uninformed to tell what is truth and what is nonsense. So, for the sake of discussion, let’s look at some of the myths going around America at the moment.

A Primer on the Fighting in Syria

A brief history of the current Middle East situation Have you been listening about all the fighting in and around Syria? You need a score card just to keep track of who is fighting who or who is supporting who. Well, as public service, when I ran across this highly restricted briefing document on Syria I just had to share it with you.

I hope it clears up all that confusion for you!

The EPA Needs Military Weaponry?

Does the EPA really need military hardware? At a time when the National Debt is so obviously out of control, Two recent reports have once again shown the government’s blatant, wasteful spending habits. A Government Accountability Office report shows that federal spendthrifts are shelling out big bucks to the amount of nearly $125 billion for things we don’t need, don’t want or can’t use. 

As an example, scrutiny of one agency’s budgets over the past several years shows a puzzling pattern of spending by the EPA.

Destroying American History

Liberals in the education sector are attempting to hijack US history Those who wish to subjugate and rule a county to their way of thinking know that they must do two things: control the education system and then change what history is taught to only agree with their philosophy. One of the best examples of this was when Adolf Hitler was coming to power and he took over the education system. Hitler’s view on education was that it served a sole purpose – to ensure that a child was loyal to the Nazi state to ensure that the Third Reich lasted for 1000 years.

There are many in the United States who having been working since the early part of the 20th century to also achieve this aim.

This is Israel's Memorial to 9/11

Maybe you can understand why America needs to support Israel The United States is currently giving away billions of dollars to countries around the world under the mistaken notion that they will then 'like us' better than the other major powers of the world. The reality is that the majority of this flow of money is one-sided, with countries saying, 'Thanks, but we only care about you when you are giving us stuff'.

Israel is one of the few countries in the world that is truly a friend of this country, regardless of how much we criticize them. One of the places that this is probably best demonstrated is Israel's memorial to 9/11.
