Some of you may know, some of you may not know that I am a proud home school mom. It was a decision my husband and I made and committed to long ago, before we were even married, in fact. You may be aware that home schoolers have a very extensive network where we can support one another and provide encouragement and resources to other home school families. Read more »
The Keystone XL pipeline could deliver safe and affordable energy supplies from Canada to Texas refineries, bringing in 830,000 barrels of oil a day and helping to create or support 20,000 American jobs.
For five years, however, the Obama Administration has been dragging its feet. On Friday, they announced Read more »
This is Earth Day in 2014, a day when we recommit to environmental awareness and ongoing protection of the environment.
Today the internet is filled with articles urging people to honor Earth Day by fighting manmade global warming (MGW), or as it was renamed when reality collided with faulty warming predictions, global climate change (GCC).
Alarming warnings of impending doom proliferate. Take this AP report in the Washington Post: Read more »
Deportation of the estimated 12 million illegal immigrants has always been and remains a contentious issue. At a time when all liberty loving Texans are concerned with the worrisome growth in federal law enforcement resources and domestic spying, do we really need to add more federal “cops” for any purpose – even mass deportation?

After the recent Bundy Ranch episode by the U.S. Bureau of Land Management (BLM), Texans are becoming more concerned about the BLM’s focus on 90,000 acres along a 116 mile stretch of the Texas/Oklahoma boundary. The BLM is reviewing the possible federal takeover and ownership of privately-held lands which have been deeded property for generations of Texas landowners. Read more »
Each year, on March 2, Texans celebrate a uniquely Texan holiday—Texas Independence Day. It marks the signing of the Texas Declaration of Independence at the Convention of 1836 at Washington-on-the-Brazos. And while March 2 is indeed the day Texans declared their independence, it was in fact the 18-minute battle that occurred several weeks later, on April 21, that cemented that declaration and established the Republic of Texas.
This year will mark the 178th anniversary of the Battle of San Jacinto, perhaps observed nowhere more closely than on the grounds of the San Jacinto Monument and San Jacinto Museum of History in La Porte, Texas. Read more »
With the success of Obama’s green energy policy, why not have another round of blood-letting for the American taxpayers. After all, in what is obvious crony capitalism and campaign donation payoffs, Obama figures if we haven’t put him in jail yet, he’s free to do as he pleases. Read more »
Here are some of the latest on the climate change debate showing once again that the theory that humanity causing the end of our planet is disintegrating.
Anyone observing this debate knows that global warming has slowed over the past seventeen years and we are witnessing a pause in the warming process that occurred from the mid-70’s to the mid 90’s. The advocates are scrambling to explain the failure of their models, those models that projected the warming process that failed to occur. Read more »
"The main hope of a nation lies in the proper education of its youth."-Erasmus
In that case, we're doomed. In our current public education system, we are consistently teaching to a standardized test and that's what we are going to be left with: a population doomed to fail because all they know how to do is to take a test. There wasn't enough time for critical thinking skills or problem solving, we just need to get passing scores on that *&%^$ test! Read more »

The White House quietly announced that President Obama signed Senator Ted Cruz’s anti-terrorist ambassador bill into law. The bill was written to prevent the admission into the United States, any representative to the United Nations who has engaged in espionage or terrorist activities against the United States.

Well, flip! Substitute my F-word for their F-word and drop the suggestion that even straight women want to “do ‘very sexy things’ to Windy," and I could have had the vast WingRight Conspiracy laughing at this column. Ironically, the f’ing-bomb-this and f-bomb-that commenters all seem to take Wonkette’s “satirical” take on Windy as a sex object as supportive!
Wonkette is a left-wing blog whose writers spew forth with a foul keyboard, and I think that she and her readers are serious about supporting Windy. It’s just that their support is... shall we say “bent?” Read more »

The United States State Department is on an art spending spree.
First, it spent $1 million for a granite statue at the London Embassy. It is modern art. It looks like a stack of bricks.
Now it has spent $400,000 for a statue of a camel that will be sent to the Embassy in Pakistan. Is this really necessary? I mean, a camel? Read more »
