What a wonderful time of year! Fall colors are finally coming out. I love driving down the road I live on with the many colors. Picture perfect this time of year -- just watch out for the hunters and their dogs! Hunting is fascinating to me, men (and a few women) stand around and wait for an animal, mostly deer, to cross their path. I’m not sure I understand the willingness or desire to do that, but then I love to sit at a pond and wait for the fish to jump on my hook! More ...

Iraq is much more than Iraq
For far too long conservatives have been falling into the trap of discussing the Iraq War or the Iraq policy in terms that only focus the debate on Iraq. Long ago the average citizen, thanks to the liberal framing of the debate, has lost sight of the fact that the battle in Iraq began as just another stage in the broader “War on Terror” or more aptly described as “the War against Islamo-fascist Jihadists.” Regardless, the Liberals and power-hungry Democrats have capitalized on the narrower focus and the deadly trap of only calling it the Iraq War or the Iraq Policy. More ...
