              The first thing we can learn is that freedom is worth a sacrifice. Dr. King was reviled, threatened, and attacked…

Income Inequality and Prosperity

The Big Government people say that the rich are getting richer and the poor are getting poorer. They want the Government to do something when, in fact the Government is the cause of the problem.

Red Christmas

 

Those of us who have experienced financial difficulties have had to learn how to enjoy the Christmas season even though our finances are in the red. A red Christmas.

Critics of Obamacare have warned us for years that it was not sustainable. Now, with rates rising over 25% next year, and over 100% in some places, even some of the politicians who forced this monstrosity on us are saying that it needs to be fixed.
