President Selfie plays while Chinese warships enter our waters
As President Obama played with his selfie stick in Alaska – just back from another month-long vacation – Chinese warships entered US waters to demonstrate US weakness under Obama versus China’s rising power.
“Weakness is provocative,” as the saying goes. The Obama Democrats applaud weakness, but it makes us less safe.
A strong America is a prerequisite for a safe USA and a more peaceful world.

One good idea can change your life: It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia
Rob McElhenney, an under-employed actor/waiter, thought of a funny scene: imagine a guy telling his pal he might have cancer, and the friend’s reaction is just to want to get out of there as fast as possible. That waiter/actor’s simple comedic vignette turned into one of the great television shows of all time, transformed his life and those of his friends, and scored him a beautiful wife.
Jeff Healey Band – I Think I Love You Too Much (Live 1990)
This one is for fans of guitar solos. There is a moment in this video that sparks pure joy. You’ll obviously feel it when it hits. Enjoy! (Another great performance by him and his band of the same song can be found here.)
The song is a Mark Knopfler tune.
America needs some tough love
America faces serious challenges, but has an un-serious culture. And the heart of the problem is that few of the “grownups” – the people in charge, the ones who have traditionally spoken the tough truths – are willing to do anything other than simply tell people what they want to hear.
Politicians are no use – they just want to pander for votes. Most of the media is just an extension of the Democratic party, and many of the rest are afraid to challenge their audience, lest they lose viewers/readers/listeners.
This leaves us with a stultified national dialogue. A country that can’t even discuss its real problems.
So it’s up to us “regular folk” to step up and force that conversation. This site is a humble attempt to contribute to this effort.
