How many of you know someone who is alive today who was in World War II? The number is diminishing all the time. I feel very fortunate to still have my dad around.
Out of the 16 million World War II veterans, there are only around 1/2 a million still living. Soon it will be impossible for us to talk first hand with someone who was actually there. Our understanding will be restricted to whatever we can remember someone else saying or whatever we can find in history books.
This week we share our interview with Jim Downing, the oldest living survivor of the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor in 1941. He's 103 now!Read More
There is a battle raging to grow government to out-of-control proportions. The home is ground zero. It’s not enough to continue with our armchair hand-wringing. Knowledge is power. If we can learn more about the issues, we can move the country in the right direction. You won’t hear the same sound bites constantly regurgitated on the evening news. We are here to cut to the heart of the issues and to explain them in an easily digestible and entertaining format.
Politics has become a dirty business. We have all heard plenty of news stories of elected officials involved in scandals, adultery and illegal behavior sending them to prison. There is an old line, “What’s a nice girl like you doing in a place like this?” With all the political nastiness, many wonder why a decent person would enter such a vicious arena. The reason is simple. I love my country, I love my family and I care enough about both to commit my life to preserving that for which our founding fathers lived and died.
Our loyalty must lie with the principles that made our nation strong. We must stand for the Constitution, limited government, and personal responsibility. Many office holders have let us down because they forgot to put those ideals ahead of their own political self-interest. People become disillusioned because they see people run on one set of values only to morph into different people once they become mired in the slime of big money and beholden to the lobbyists. We owe it to our country to change those people. We all have a role to play in our own spheres of influence. Stay with me and you will see that at least one person is capable of putting principles over politics. Together, let’s improve the state we’re in!
