The National Organization for Marriage (NOM) blog says the Obama Administration has once again declared its hostility toward marriage and sexual morality by claiming that the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA), passed by congress and signed into law by Democrat President Bill Clinton, was motivated by “animus” toward homosexuals.

The Better Use of Light Bulbs (BULB) Act could very well turn the lights back on for those in favor of the incandescent light bulb. Expected to receive a vote in the House of Representatives very soon, the House Energy and Commerce Committee’s legislation, H.

Hard assets have been one of the most significant asset classes over the last decade. From all indications, it will continue to be a critically important investment category to protect your portfolio from the effects of inflation and the continuing devaluation of the U.S. dollar. Creating a gone-fishing portfolio begins with a top-level asset allocation.
Last week’s birthday of the nation was an unusual one for the Garnos family (I’ll explain later). Therefore, today’s column was written on Independence Day, the Fourth of July. It is of reflections of what the day and our American flag mean as the two are inseparable. One is from a National Guardsman and there is one or two from this columnist.
