The embedded video from governmentgonewild.org is a ‘must-see’ for all Americans. It portrays our debt crisis for what it is, the greatest threat to our country that we have ever faced. Unless we get this under control we can forget about our environment, terrorism, the global economy, radical Islam, socialism or any of the issues that we struggle with daily. It won’t matter because day to day survival will be our major concern.
Fred Phelps and his gang of haters has made a practice of driving a knife into the hearts of families grieving the loss of American soldiers fallen in combat. Though buffer zones to stop these haters is still in debate in our courts, the American people have made their own solution in the form of the Patriot Guard Riders who honor the fallen and their families. This video about the Patriot Guard Riders is told mostly by a family who lost their loved one in the line of duty; their pain is very clear, as is their appreciation for the Patriot Guard Riders.

Then most of that turned out to be smoke and mirrors. But the week finished strong, with House Republicans passing a plan to cut $6 TRILLION in spending.

All rhetoric and hyperbole aside, it is a documented fact that Planned Parenthood is an ideologically-driven organization dedicated to advancing a radical pro-abortion agenda. When the organization and its supporters decry evil Republicans’ attempts to deny critical “family planning” services to low-income women, they are not talking about adoption services or birth control – they are talking about in-clinic abortions, the abortion pill, and efforts to spread their anti-family, anti-child agenda to the women of the world. Why are the taxpayers forced to fund this organization?
On Wednesday, President Obama spoke at George Washington University to share his vision on how to deal with the nation’s fiscal crisis. In opening his remarks, the president quite correctly noted that the debate about our national budget is about “more than just numbers on a page…..It’s about the kind of country we believe in.” In other words, the budget debate is most fundamentally a debate about values.
