The following was written for March 1, 2015, “Our Daily Bread” by Keila Ochoa. ************************ We gave our 2-year-old son a pair of new boots recently. He was so happy that he didn’t take them off until it was bedtime. But the next day he forgot all about the boots and put on his old sneakers. My husband said, “I wish he knew how much things cost.” The boots were expensive, but a young child doesn’t know about working hours, salaries, and taxes. A child receives the gifts with open […]
There are only two plausible reasons why criticism of Obama is immediately viewed as being because he is black. For those who are quick to wield such illogic, I submit that if we were to agree with them, they would not like my reasoning. Watch this two minute video and tell me what you think.

For example, Bill O’Reilly will frequently […]
Political correctness is the bludgeon cultural-Marxists wield to demagogue the craven into obedience. It is the meme employed that ensures the acceptable form of social-engineering. I reject “political-correctness” in all of its constructs and have pledged to myself that I will never succumb to what amounts to a veiled unconstitutional attempt to enslave the nation on a plantation of forced group think, group speak, and group behavior. Such was the gist of a conversation I recently had with Susan Highfield. She suffered under the fallacious idea that certain speech was […]
The following is the letter one of my readers sent to their elected representative. It is imperative that you read this and understand just how grievous, harmful, and diabolical obamacare is to individuals and families.
